Acuphase and Dr Jamil

To who this may concern, I did attempt to raise the issue of care provided regarding my last incarceration at St Cadocs adferiad ward by Dr Jamil in 2015, but i became sectioned again, this time in Stonebow Hereford because this whole issue of what happened the previous year annoyed me so much. When i was back at home in Hereford 2016, x2 people came and visited regarding my complaint who were nice and i received a letter but no apology issued and no faults found. I thought leave it for another day when I’m not so emotionally invested. Since then I done allot of calming down and done some research on the guidelines of usage when administering acuphase, these are clearly not being followed. In St Cadocs if you miss an appointment the police and your mum are called. Why stress out a mental patient in this way haunting them with police and family? After getting arrested and more stressed out in the process of being chased by police and my mum all day, i was put in a cell for missing an appointment and arrested for breach of the peace inside my own home for attempting to stop my mum and sister calling the police without speaking to me, in the station, sectioned and back to hospital. A couple of weeks in hospital I have a solicitor arranged and arrives for the tribunal in the afternoon, Dr Jamil removes my section in the morning and is happy because she doesn’t have to goto a tribunal now. I wanted to go to explain this situation I was placed under but this was denied. A couple of weeks pass , I’m at home and I express that I don’t want Dr Jamil as my psychiatrist anymore to the various CPN’s that visited. The response back was that they wanted to check me for a mental health assessment, I said that’s not an issue and pass my number over. A couple of day pass and I get called by someone who wanted to do a mental health assessment that day. I explained that I was currently busy, away and will have to be another time. A few more days pass and a Dr turns up late in the evening, on his own asking where are the others. He came in an I explained that he was the only visitor here atm….

Caroline’s Complaint about H Ward, Somerset Partnership Trust Mental Health Services

somerset partnership

                  My letter of complaint about my experiences of mental health care in UK.. An experience no one should ever be put through but they are every day.. This is the reality of care in the UK mental health services for many ppl. CONFIDENTIAL My name is Caroline Breslin. I am writing to you because I would like to make a formal complaint about my treatment by mental health services. When you reply to me please would you also send a copy of your reply to my advocate: My complaint is about the ongoing effects of my treatment in H Ward in 2015 and the follow up care given to me in 2016. Before I set out details of my complaint I would first like to give some background about my experience at an earlier time because I see it as all connected. At my first contact with psychiatric services in 2008 Dr gave me a contraindicated drug Amyl Sulphide that was not meant to be taken with citalopram antidepressant. This resulted in me being very heavily sedated to the extent that I was unable to organise leaving house for counselling therapy offered by the service so I was cut off from their services and basically existed in a heavily sedated state until I ended up in a manic state in 2012 or 2013, which I blame on the contraindicated drug given alongside the anti depressant citalopram.and the services allowed me to re-engage with them. I never had mania before or since, apart from once mild flight or fight in 2004 when my dad died and I was mugged and assaulted twice in Dublin; it was a reaction to these traumas. I have problems with dates as I have complex PTSD which was a result of my treatment by police and mental health services. I am currently receiving help privately as I will never trust the statutory psychiatric services ever again. I was sectioned to H Ward on 15 Oct 2015, and discharged from the section around 15 November 2015. I was offered a very high dose of quietiapine which was much higher than I had been taking previously. I refused this so then was given forced injections – to this day I do not know what drug it was. I was given up to five maybe six intra-muscular injections. I was…

Interview with Justin Bond, Mental Health Sufferer from Birmingham

justin bond castle inn

How did you first come to the attention of mental health services? In 2000 I went to hospital after attempting suicide not long after my mother passed away, aged 48. I had also not long split up with my girlfriend of four years and was really down in every way. I decided to visit a casino in Birmingham which I was a member of but hardly frequented, lost about £1000 on gambling, bought a few bottles of JD and some pain killers, went home and attempted the deed. I was only found because when i arrived home, I had left my front door wide open and the couple next door had called the Police as they had thought I’d been broken into. Was your first hospital admission a shocking experience? Hell yeah! I woke up on the first night to a woman running up and down the wing on fire, screaming like a Banshee. I thought I was tripping and went back to sleep. It wasn’t until the next day when the other residents were talking about it that I realised that it wasn’t bad drugs… How did the medication make you feel? Medication wise, it was always a struggle. Just when i thought I’d found the cure, the side effects would kick in, sometimes making it physically impossible to take them. My first prescribed meds had me trying to iron clothes with the kettle. What do you think of the public perception of mental illness? Is there a stigma attached? I have always been very, very open with my illness which has left me open to certain folks taking advantage or ridiculing me. Worse than that are the folks that try and help but the minute something goes wrong in some way, blame it on me because it must be my fault… How have you built your life back together away from the mental health system?Apart from a few times when I was addicted to drugs (my way of self medicating at the time), I have very little to do with services. What are your coping strategies? Just try and live each day as it comes What improvements would you like to see in the field of mental health? Actually care and when you’re having an ‘off’ day and this goes to friends and family of all sufferers, stop asking if we’ve taken our meds. We can be pissed…
