    I don't know your history but you may be eligible for the Partners in Recovery program. It is a program for people with severe and persistent mental illness who have complex needs. The program will connect you to a support carer who will work with you to identify your most pressing needs and help to address them. This can be anything from mental health needs and regaining custody of your DS. Other areas it can assist with include safety to self, addiction issues/substance abuse, keeping your home in order and ensuring you're receiving any benefits you're entitled to. You can refer yourself or ask one of your health care providers to assist with a referral. The program is divided into regions:

    National Website:
    http://www.pirinitiative.com.au/index_public.php

    Local Region:
    http://sempir.com.au/referrals/referral-forms/list.html

    If you're not eligible for the program they should be able to link you in with other mental health services that can assist you.

    Please PM me if you have any questions.

    I can't believe they can do that. That seems really messed up to me. I really hope someone can help you fight this. That's so unfair to both of you.

    Well I had thought things couldn't get worse but apparently I was wrong. Every contact I've had with DHS they have changed the playing field considerably, a step in the wrong direction each time. As of last Tuesday DS has been placed in out of home care by temporary order with a whole raft of conditions including my contact with him being supervised.

    On top of that my agent inspected my house despite APARC and Dhs both contacting them telling/requesting them them not to and it was like a bomb site. Not surprisingly they have sent a notice of breach and are supposedly reinspecting next Monday - I still haven't bbeen able to go home to clean (even if i wanted to) so it's still the same bomb site.

    I ended up being transferred from Aparc to the psych ward last Friday (decision to hospitalise was taken out of my hands apparently - i cannot remember any of Friday to Sunday so we think it's highly possible i took something i shouldn't have with that combined with how incoherent I was). The depression and desire to harm myself are at a point where we think ECT is the best way from here since we can't get medications right so that starts tomorrow morning. Here's hoping from that I will start to feel some relief by the end of next week.

    After nearly 5 weeks at aparc, 1 in hospital and now at least another 4-6 in a combination of both to come I'm very much over it.

    Echoing kriista.

    I'll see if I can find some info on what to expect for after ect, if you would like Dad told me he didn't have it, but he knows people who have.

    I have my fingers crossed that it helps and you are soon feeling a bit better.
