My sweet friend who had tried a few times to end it all succeeded last week

a lot of folk are saying 'it is what she wanted' and yes it was (at the end)...but it need not have been....

she also had cp and had had a pretty raw deal in life

why were nt the mental health people looking after her properly? why could they not get her medication sorted so that she no longer felt so desperate

In my experience they rise up in a 'crisis' and then are no where to be found the rest of the time. Only there when you ask for them.not looking out for the vulnerable

grrrr i am angry - they failed my friend ,

does anyone have faith in their community mental health team?

I don't have any experience of this personally, only through dealings at work but I am so sorry to hear of your loss
