Please no piss takes or digs unless genuinely funny..
I’ve only been in a year had a really hard upbringing with family life and my step Dad being an emotional abusive alcoholic throughout my childhood. I joined like many others to escape this to better myself and keep myself on the right path.
However I’ve suffered for many years with ‘low moods’ as I realise this is different from depression but while being in the Army over the last 6 months it’s changed drastically from low moods to serve depression while I’ve been on long term leave due to COVID 19.
I rang and have tried talking to friends and family but the depression keeps coming back every other day making it impossible to help myself and go out for walks/ runs while I’m off work or do things I enjoy.
I’ve started to get bad suicidal thoughts and hear voices I’ve been in contact with the DCMH but like I said I’m not going to kill myself so really want to avoid getting discharged from the army so early into my career how likely this if anybody knows? Also whats the procedure like with the DCMH or how does it work?
Any tips/ advice is greatly appreciated!
