About: Sligo Adult Community Mental Health Services

(as a parent/guardian),

My son was referred to the Mental health team in Ballymote.

I feel that my son and our family were treated very well under the care of Dr. O'Neill and by the rest of the team. Our community mental health Nurse Joan was a great help to us, helping us every step of the way. We were also given the phone number of the 7 day nursing staff which reassured us that we had someone we could talk to if things were really tough. We didn't need to use it but knowing that we had it gave us peace of mind.

Dear Thankful Mum

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience of the Mental Health Team in Ballymote on Patient Opinion.

We really appreciate you taking the time to share your experience and are so pleased that you have found the care your family has received has been positive and reassuring.

Your feedback has been shared with all of the team here, especially Joan our Community Mental Health Nurse. It gives us great encouragement when we receive feedback such as yours.

May we wish your son well in his continued recovery.

Best wishes,

Dr Donagh O'Neill
