Mental health practitioner in Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services.
Any views I express here are in a personal capacity and are not necessarily the views of my employer.
If I mention any clinical anecdotes, you can guarantee that it will have been heavily fictionalised and anonymised to protect confidentiality. Details will have been changed. Different cases will have been merged into one. Some things may have been outright made up. If an anecdote sounds like it might be you, then it’s not you.
Nothing I say here should be considered medical advice. That’s what your own GP or CAMHS is for.
