My ds is driving me mad. He transitioned over from CYPS to Adult Mental Health recently but is no better. Tbf CYPS were rubbish and AMH are better but I cannot live with him, his rituals and his opinions anymore. Anyone else?

I have an almost 'housebound' 16 year old and my husband looks after his almost housebound 14 year old brother. My eldest has a lot of problems, OCD is one of them. My youngest has a generalised anxiety disorder. Neither are in education or training and, although I love both boys, the inadequacy of support from CAMHS and CSC is unbelievable. I say almost housebound because both boys will go to their uncle's farm, but that is it.

You have my deepest sympathy.

Has he got an up to date care plan? Ask them to revisit it, and tell them it needs to include a defined plan to get him into sheltered housing because you won't be housing him after, say, January.

I've no advice really but know how you feel and my heart goes out to you. I have a 15 yr old with Aspergers and OCD. It has taken over our lives and I swing between being broken hearted and wanting to throttle him
