Hi,

Someone’s question about “mental health team” got me thinking. What types of doctors / psychiatrists and therapists and social workers do you have see regularly on on an “as-needed” basis to help keep you healthy? If I’ve missed some type of healhcare worker - please post a message below.

@SzAdmin On multiple choice polls many people forget to hit “Vote now”. Just FYI.

Psychiatrist and nurse
Edit: Forgot GP… So GP also

Psychiatrist, one and soon possibly two therapists, one spiritual coach… might be dropping one or two and adding a psychologist or therapist that is more experienced with psychosis.

Oh… and BOOKS.

my p/doc is my main guy to see if i have any problems but i have also got an informal support worker who helps me with doing things and i am hoping she is going to help me with the transition into work (its complicated)

i was discharged by my CPN care about 2 and a half years ago so i had less support but i can always phone when i need help,

thing is that sometimes they play things down with me which makes me angry, a couple of guys at the clinic are really mean and i hate them,

my main care giver really is my friend Alison whom has helped me immensely throughout my illness for about 10 years now

Just realized - I should have included “Specialist doctors” too - like a cardiologist - if you have heart problems, or you might see a dietician or endocrinologist if you have diabetes. Just note here below in a message if that is the case.

I see a psychiatrist, therapist, GP, cardiologist, neurologist, rheumatologist, and physical therapist.

my mums has been my carer the last 5 years i think but she never cared for me much and things have changed and i didnt want to muck things up for her, my friend alison is like my main carer and i am hers although we dont pay each other i pay for thing for her a lot and do things for her when i can and in return she lets me use her car and i recently used her house as respite bc my place was bringing me down.

we also have carers link charity here that helps with carers mental health and other things but i havent used them.

also i still havent had my yearly check up at the GP surgery and i got a call from them a while ago just making sure i was still alive :confused: lol
