Opportunity to contribute to the future training of doctors who treat mental health issues. - August 7th 2013, 12:22 AM

Hey everyone,

Below is an advertisement for a research project about people's experiences of mental health services. If you are interested in taking part please complete the linked survey.

Hi everyone,

We’re a group of mental health doctors writing a guidebook for trainee psychiatrists in the UK. As part of the textbook, we’d like to include quotes and stories from the service users’ point of view. We’re inviting people who’ve had experience with mental health services in the UK to tell us what’s important to them.

Have you had any really positive experiences with mental health doctors? Any experiences where a doctor really helped you? Or experiences where you feel something could have been done differently? Or even an experience where a doctor did or said something that really upset you?

We appreciate that not every experience is positive - our aim is to make sure the mental health doctors of the future have the insight and support they need to be able to treat their patients with dignity and respect. Your story – whether positive or negative - could show a young doctor how best to help somebody like you in future.

We would like to hear from people who have seen mental health doctors in clinic, at home, in A&E and in hospital. If we choose to include your story in the book, we will do so entirely anonymously. We may also combine it with other peoples’ stories to make the point more understandable.

If you’re interested in contributing, you can you can do so via the anonymous survey at http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/9CKSLST. If you’d like some more information about the project before you contribute, you can email us at wearelistening2013@gmail.com.

We’re very sorry but we’re not currently able to offer advice or assistance to people in distress who contact us via this survey. We would encourage you to visit A&E or contact your local Community Mental Health Team if you are in need of help.

Shared my story.. Can't say I'm a massive fan of the way they treat mental health on the NHS.

Do you wanna come with me? 'Cause if you do, then I should warn you - you're gonna see all sorts of things. Ghosts from the past. Aliens from the future. The day the Earth died in a ball of flame. It won't be quiet, it won't be safe, and it won't be calm. But I'll tell you what it will be: The trip of a lifetime!

Don't trust a perfect person and don't trust a song that's flawless.
RIP Granddad Terry. I'll miss you.
