My husband was medically discharged just over two years ago with "mild depression". We were in married quarters, and had to move pretty quick. His mum and myself both knew that he illness was much more serious, than just 'mild depression, but getting someone to recognise this, was, and still is, an absolute nightmare. After upteen suicide attempts, and unpredictibly volatile behaviour (which is out of character for him)He was eventually refferd to Combat Stressl. He goes to Hollybush House twice a year, and the staff and his case worker are wonderfull. He was diagnosed with PTSD by them. For some reason, our local mental health services seem very reluctant to help, and the last two years, my husband has been passed from one person to anither. His case worker at Hollybush say that thier treatment can only work if he has continued support form the NHS. I don't know why, but they seem not to want to acknowledge the diagnosis from Combat Stress. About a month ago, his case worker wrote to our local GP, asking why my husband was having no help from the local mental health team, his doctor said they are organising a case conference. My husband has never had any criminal convictions, but since being discharged from service, he has been arrested by the police for public disorder several times, and seems to be getting more and more depressed. I love my husband, but why does there seen to be so little help from the NHS? I feel like I have this on my shoulders, and without my Mum-in-law, who has the worry of her terminaly ill father to deal with, I don't know who else to turn to. I feel like I'm shouting down a wind tunnel, but my voice is going nowhere.
