Chatwee Update

Update - There's been some technical difficulties launching Chatwee onto our website so we will not be moving to Chatwee on Thursday.

As soon as we fix this issue, we'll announce another date for launching. We're really sorry for the delay in Chatwee, thanks so much for your patience.

Post of The Month (September)

Maisy is our Post of The Month winner voted by the community for the following post:

"Hey Shaunie,

​I care. I really relate to what you have been experiencing with the house falling apart, and things not getting fixed due to general shame of the state of the house and not knowing where to begin fixing things or who to contact (you don't want to come across rogue tradesmen). Not even having adequate heating and hot water. And clutter. Everywhere. It's horrible to live in such circumstances, I know. It's hard as well when you see everyone else living a 'normal' life and yet being unable to talk about your situation."

      Hey Kayden,
      Would you perhaps feel comfortable e-mailing your worker to tell her what's going on? May be good to let off some steam? Have you done anything nice today?

          Well, just got home. The crisis team didnt really talk about my plans, all they said about the plans were ring us if you need us.

            Hi Kayden,

            I'm really sorry that you've not found the crisis team helpful today. It's really positive that you went to go and see them today. There's a few bits that were removed from your post just need to keep things safe on the boards with our guidelines. The Mix are sending over a PM shortly to you. Stay safe Kayden.

            All the best,
            - Aife

              hospitals can't keep you stay safe even if you have plans, there's ways you can do harm to your and even end you life. Even in a empty room by yourself. They are probably helping and doing the best they can but they must think hospital admission won't be helpful. Cause theyre horrible. Which is why the let you go home. But doesnt mean they want you to do it cause you could either way. I hope you can stay safe this week.
              I dont expect anything - to just end up disappointed. But i do not have zero hope for the future cause that has only dragged me down & brung negativity. I will just not predict the future

                Thanks all. Well.. i decided to take the bull by the horns. Spoke to the on call worker which turns out she is also a trained psychologist. She spoke to me about what was going on with the crisis team etc and said that the way they have treated me is wrong.. she said i need to be care managed and offered therapy. So she just phoned the crisis team and told them that i need to be care managed and told them how ill i actually am. She told me its not my fault for the way that i am, its my illness. Shes now left me but shes waiting for a phone call back from the crisis team who are reading my notes as i type this.. may find out more tonight, she said she has my number.

                  Just heard back.. isnt it funny when a psychologist who is also on call contacts the crisis team they actually do something instead of palming me off with "try sleep, try distract yourself".. crisis team said they are going to have a meeting tomorrow morning and discuss what they are going to do with my case then, and try and push for me to see a psychiatrist. Unless this on call worker contacted them they would of just discharged me and left me to it. I also told the on call worker about the plan i had and that the crisis team just said call us if you need us and didnt offer any support. Guess i have to wait and see what happens when i wake up.

                    Hi kayden.
                    Seems like you want support. So maybe apart of you don't want to go with the plans which is good to read. Correct me if I'm wrong.
                    Hope you get the support you're looking for
