"Let down when suffering with depression"

About: Sligo/Leitrim Mental Health Services

(as a service user),

I have been involved with the mental health service for a number of years I feel they were of little use when I needed them most I felt I was not being listened to I feel I have had to come through my depression on my own l feel I was being talked down to. I feel those so called professionals are so detached from their patients I am so very dissatisfied service user.

Dear John,

I am responding to your story as I help to organise the Care Opinion System for the Mental Health Service. I am sorry that we are only responding to you now. Part of the reason for the delay is that we were not quite sure who would be best placed in the service to respond to your comments. If you would like to let me know where you attended, I can make sure that your feedback is passed on to the relevant department and this can be used for learning. However, if you would prefer not to, that is fine as well.

In any case, thank you for giving the feedback and I am sorry that you did not have a more positive experience with the service. If you would like to contact me directly, my email is martin.jones@hse.ie or you can telephone me on 071 91 43316.

Best Wishes for the future,
