    Is the property private or council? It makes a difference. I have found that my Housing Officer is worse than useless as he wants me to apply and go on the list but if I do so then I would have to visit the property to be able to move into it. I have been Housebound for 2 years and will remain so permanently so I cannot visit and therefore can't have it. I tried to get the GP to help which, if you haven't tried it, might help so long as they are better doctors than at my surgery who refuse to help, probably because they don't have a clue how to help.

    Sorry, most of this won't help you but you could try people like MIND or the CAB to find out what your options are. Failing that you need to be so ill as to need a hospital stay and then get their OT group to assess you and maybe move you into a new residence. It's the only way I know around stupid jobsworth Housing Officers.

    A thank you for responding apologies its  housing association  NHG 
    It's  also the way I'm being treated compared to other tennants 
    My neighbour had her flat sound insulated with secondary glazed windows.
    Wen ever  I make requests  they decline.
    I was refferred  to mental health services but they were useless. 
    I'm very scared to go back.
    But also not in a good  position  where I am.

    Cab not helpfull I use yo volunteer for them  
    Other things such as having mail stolen  ripped in shread s being followed by the son 
    All reported to police etc.

    Socilotor would be best option  but  no luck as of yet.

    Hi @hass, I'm really sorry to hear how things have been recently. It sounds like it's been a really tough few months for you.

    Are you wanting to start your medication again? I'm concerned by your mention of suicide and want to support you.

    You can call Samaritians on 116 123 to be in touch with a crisis volunteer. Also, SHOUT have a similar service which is mental health support over text. If you text SHOUT to 85258 a crisis volunteer will be in touch. 

    MIND also have guidance on how to manage suicidal thoughts. 

    If you haven't already, please do seek a second opinion from another GP. You deserve to be heard.

    Hi @hass, in terms of your housing situation, you could contact an Advocate service like SEAP

    Also, your Social landlord should have a mediation service of some sort. 

    Do you have the details for your landlord?

    HI,

    I'm glad you've found someone to help but please be careful that they don't charge you as i see you have found 2 solicitors. I'd be very surprised if they are doing this for free unless you have legal aid.
