Just had a call from the Crisis Team, who were coordinating my aftercare following my stay on the ward, and I have officially been discharged, which is essentially a full discharge from hospital!
It actually feels great.
I’m now just an outpatient, being looked after by the Local Mental Health Team. I am no longer seen as being in crisis, I am on the road to recovery.
The crisis team let me know that they are still open to me if things deteriorate and I need immediate support, which is reassuring, but on the whole, it feels great to have closure on this whole episode.
