    Hi welcome,

    I have Autism and Schizophrenia so I have been under a mental health nurse most of my life, do you have any specific questions about them? They are usually quite nice, and can help with almost anything. My last CPN was fantastic and new more about me than I did, and was like my personal secretary as she sorted everything out for me, even doing my PIP for me after refusing for so many years.

    Feel free to ask any questions, but you should be fine. goodluck tomorrow.
    I have Autism, ADHD, Schizophrenia, Gilberts Syndrome and Crohn's Disease and have knowledge in these areas.
