In mid 50s before any help with mental health …
2008 – 2014
I suffered abuse as a child and it has affected my entire life. xxxxxxxxxxxx Mental Health Authority say that they are refusing me treatment and the reason is that I won’t survive it – the process. I feel probably and more importantly for them that it will probably cost too much and that is the reason why they are not helping me.
I have had to try and find the funds for 7 years to privately see a psychotherapist. What is happening in society with mental health problems is costing the country fortunes because earlier and rapid intervention is needed for these problems. I was in my mid 50s before I had any intervention at all.
