"Excellent care with the Sligo mental health service"

About: Sligo/Leitrim Mental Health Services / Sligo Adult Community Mental Health Services

(as the patient),

I would like to commend the excellent service provided by the Sligo mental health team.

I have experienced bouts of depression and anxiety, as well as an intense episode of post-natal depression for which I am currently being treated. At each stage I have been fully supported, with access to a highly experienced psychiatrist and CBT therapist. I can see both at whatever frequency I required at the time, and have been treated with genuine care and professionalism at every stage.

I cannot speak highly enough of my care team, they have made a huge difference to my family and I, and to my recovery.

I meet with service users and sometimes with their families. I assess psychological problems and provide psychological interventions in an effort to help service users overcome their difficulties.
