Hi, I have worked with clients who have had positive experiences at PMH Youth. I found it to be professional and supportive towards the clients I had within their service.

My son was visited at home as he still wont go out. The doctor is not really thinking its presenting like depression, but ofcourse without full blown tests evaluations etc, I guess really hard. Any way, he has been prescribed Fluoxetine. As yet, no change showing. Still not showering etc etc. Sleeping in clothes. So sad. All Ican do is keep being as stable as I possibly can for his sake.

Doctor will see him end of January, and see whats what, may still be off to either chch, or dunedin.

Thankyou for adding Cycling Hero. It is still a possibility for my child. He has been on anti depressents, but will no longer take them now. The doctor wants to see him next week, but due to how he wont leave the house that may not happen, even if, Doc still wants to meet with me.

Housebound is an issue. There are so many variables.....

Thanks for the comments, if it comes to it...I can tell my son here is someone who has been.

Thanks.
Apricot.

Gulps. Had the news last night we are to go next week. Have to fly. Have never flown before, either of us. Petrified. I have issues myslef, getting to the mailbox sometimes hard enough. Local shopping can be extreme. THIS IS FUCKING HUGE.

I am having problems even thinking about it. My son has thrown his pills out last night. says everything is my fault. Says he will not go, whch of course means sectioned. Said thismorning he just wants to starve and die.

THis is all so hard and painful. I am terrified of getting from A to B. Not of the people as such. ITs the lifts, the traffic, the signs...all tooooo much information if you understand. It makes it harder for ever for me to understand simple things. My son said last night he is worried, but wont or cant say why.

I hate living in this head of mine. ANd I feel so guilty than now my own kids are also showing signs of something....problems.
At my sons age I had attempted suicide. with medications.
am still on medications. When I drank, that seemed to relax me most of all, made me feel as good as everyone else etc....except I did stupid things when drinking. It lost me my family. It lost me any respect that many had for me. I have worked so hard to be sober this last two years. Its so hard.

I work at the YIU, and have also been admitted in the past. It's come a very long way, the staff are excellent and I get a lot of positive feedback from the youth there. They tackle complaints extremely efficiently at the moment and have far more resources than they did when I was a patient, it's great to see such an improvement over the years. It's a tough time, but the best support is there Smile
