I got my cpn after being referred to the CMHT. I see her every two weeks and we talk about stuff going on in my life at the moment and we also do some CBT/compassionate mind stuff. I really like my CPN and she has been really helpful to me.

I too see different consultants; also when I was referred to the Cmht I was assigned a mental health nurse weekly. He is trying to get me seen by the original (and best) consultant. Hope you get the care and treatment dopamax.
