Hi Claire, I do not have a assigned mental health nurse!! I did have a social worker but I was told that because I was deemed well I no longer needed it and my social worker was withdrawn??
My last psychotic episode was in 2008 due to no longer taking medication, but since then I have been stable on my medication.
I am considering in the future perhaps doing paid work or voluntary work but I would need to put down a contact in case of an emergency. Iam wary of asking friends and I have no contact with family members! I want someone who is impartial but understanding of my situation? Does that sound possible?
yes Claire im talking purely in terms of the forms i need to fill in! When you apply for a job or have been given a job they ask for next of kin or someone they can contact in case of an emergency, that s what i need a contact? As i said i do not have an assigned mental health nurse or social worker??
Also it would be useful for everything including university applications, colleges if i go on to do more studies in the near future?
