Personality Disorders - Treatment problems
What if I am not happy with my treatment?
You could call the Patient Advice and Liaison Service (PALS) at your NHS trust if you:
feel unhappy with how your treatment or care is being handled, or feel that the relationship between you and a professional is not working well.
They can try to sort out any problems or questions you have. You can find your local PALS’ details here.
You can also complain if you are not happy. You can find out more about ‘Complaints’ here.
You might find an advocate helpful if you are unhappy with your treatment. Advocacy can help you understand the mental health system and allow you to be involved in decisions about your care. An advocate is independent from mental health services. They can help to make your voice heard when you are trying to sort out problems. They might help you write letters or support you in appointments and meetings.
There may be a local advocacy service in your area that you can contact for support. You can search online for a local service or the Rethink Mental Illness Advice Service could search for you.
You can find out more information about ‘Advocacy’ here.
