Hi,

I'm very sorry to hear of the situation. I can't help you with the Police however I can advise you on the type of treatment you should be receiving for both the PTSD and the psychosis.

Can I start by asking you who you are currently being treated by; Psychiatrist, Psychologist, family doctor?

Customer: replied 3 years ago.
family doctor joseph hassman early in life i saw dr richard coheh and dr chamberlin for my ptsd and havent had a problem!!!!! dr hassmann is treating me for my severe anxiety and paic disorder which was all under control until this started he is just a do what iam afraiad of is i am a scorpion and when iam pushed in to a corner i will react and iam wel trained the problem is when iam pushed to this limit i blackout and iam afraid of what can happen and when it does failure is not an option!!!!!!!!!!
Expert:  Dr John B replied 3 years ago.
Thanks. Just to clarify, you are happy with your treatment but now that you are experiencing this harassment you are concerned about the impact it will have upon your mental health?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

Expert:  Dr John B replied 3 years ago.
Are your current doctors treating you for the emerging psychosis/paranoia?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
NO THEY ARE DO
Expert:  Dr John B replied 3 years ago.
Ok. If they aren't treating the emerging psychotic symptoms as a priority then it is imperative that you consult with a Psychiatrist who is prepared to do so. The usually treatment approach to psychotic symptoms is to use anti-psychotics and these will need to be prescribed and supervised by a Psychiatrist. Psychotic symptoms are generally considered a medical emergency and you would be well within your rights to go to an emergency ward and request immediate assistance. Do you think that your current doctors would assist you in accessing emergency psychiatric treatment or will you have to do this on your own?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
no i believe they are on the side of the police
Expert:  Dr John B replied 3 years ago.
Ok, if you don't think they will be of assistance would you be willing to contact emergency services yourself? Many areas have emergency assessment teams who will come to you if your require an immediate assessment.
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
absolutely i live in the cherry hill area i just do not know where to go ihave to nipped this in the butt before i or they get hurt and cant always control it less and less lately!!!!! by the way iam male
Expert:  Dr John B replied 3 years ago.

Ok, contact the United Way who will be able to direct you to any emergency services available in your area. You can call them on 112 or if you happen to be in an area where that number does not operate you can contact them here . When you speak with them tell them that you require an emergency Psychiatric assessment for emerging Psychosis.

Acute Psychosis usually responds very well to treatment and I would hope that with the right assistance you can bring this under control.

I hope this has been of some help. Please let me know if you have further questions or would like me to clarify any part of my answer.

Good luck!
