I'm under local mental health, local adult social services I have a carer through my local mental health I also have a Tennant support officer. I have been in a mental hospital 3 times and only 2 weeks ago attempted an overdose. I have ptsd, stress trauma and anxiety since the death of my son. My carer filled in my uc50 and sent it off late January this year with lots of supporting evidence, they are saying they haven't received it even though I have proof as my carer filled it in and posted it and I have a text dated the 5th of February still on my phone stating they had received it. I'm at my whits end and have just had my medication upped and that may have partly triggered the overdose attempt. Why should I have to repeat the process and go through all the stress and strain of getting help to refill out another uc50 plus wait months again when I have already done it and been waiting 7 months. They only told me 3 weeks ago they hadn't received it, just don't know what to do.
