thanx my thoughts for your thoughts, oh welcome to the community. yes where i live we have community mental health teams, and psych triage at hospital also. i have exhausted all of the above and even took out private health insurance to gain access to private admissions. no longer have private health ins, too expensive. the public system in my area is stuffed and to gain an admission in the public system is like the lottery, 1 in a few million! thus my gp is always my first port of call.
take care and thanx for sating hi.

to alimonkey and my thoughts. here down under!! our psych services are pathetic. once you are of the books and or discharged from hospital you are not merely forgotten, more like you seek to exist. and here in oz the private system is just as bad, especially if you are a patient that seeks to have input to your tratment. me, i am in the too hard basket, thus because of burning out 2 shrinks from 2 seperate hospitals i am no longer welcome back. and i am somewhat blacklisted. shrinks do not like borderlines, becuse we refute all authority when unwell. yeah i challenged everything!
