What about treatment?




If you are very distressed by your symptoms and they put you or others at risk, the doctor may think the best place for treatment is the hospital. Hospital should be a place of safety and treatment. While you are there, mental health nurses can care for you and the doctor can make sure your medication is working effectively.





There are a number of organisations and services available to support you in your treatment and recovery. You may find some more helpful that others. See the External resources section for information and support organisations.
