Your Stories

We believe that no one should have to face a mental health problem alone – and blogs, real stories from real people, can play a part in achieving this. Blogs and stories can show that people with mental health problems are cared about, understood and listened to. We can use it to challenge the status quo and change attitudes. Reading a blog or watching a vlog by someone going through a familiar experience can have a big impact. 

We are looking for people to write blogs, be interviewed and star in short videos.

  1. I am concerned about the CP NH S FT policy of not admitting anyone to inpatient care from A&E following suicide attempt. I feel this has failed many people, resulting in unnecessary deaths. Have similar concerns been brought to your attention? Is it something Mind can investigate?
    Thank you

    1. Dear Anne, thank you for your comment. I completely understand concerns you might have about this matter. Here at Cornwall Mind we campaign to improve services, raise awareness and promote understanding of mental health. The NHS system is certainly not perfect here in Cornwall, with a huge lack of resources and facilities needed to meet the growing demands of the county. We are aware of the difficulties A & E patients might meet after suicide attempt. It is an area we hope to support in the future. My colleague was a CPN for years in Cornwall and has seen many changes as budgets are cut and resources stretched. This sadly results in more crisis situations, it isn’t right. Thank you Anne you obviously care a great deal about this. Kind Regards Jo.
