Hi, thanks for your advice.

Actually, my "team" was only for a follow-up interim until I got into the Day Treatment Program. The follow-up had to do with my short-term stay on the crisis unit after I slit my wrist. So, basically, the follow-up was only concentrating on my coping abilities. It had nothing to do with any other factors. And when I mentioned some other "problems", I was told in no uncertain terms that the "team" was not there for therapy for me outside of the suicide attempt. *sigh*

So....now I go through a 6-week Day Treatment Program that is mainly just trying to raise your self-esteem and all that other wacky stuff. It has nothing to do with any type of mental health issues outside of trying to make you feel better about yourself.

THEN...after the six weeks, I can have another assessment and be referred to a counsellor of some type if I want it. I suppose THAT would be the time I'd mention voices and all the other problems....like still being suicidal! *sigh*

I think this whole process is ridiculous. I could be DEAD by the time I finally get to see a counsellor...who may not even be a pdoc!

Sorry....it's just been a really crappy day. My appointment made me feel be-littled today....and left me out on my own....just when I had told them that I didn't want to hoof this alone. *sigh*

Take care.

Sandy
