Dr Hall, my former psychiatrist, at her leaving party at the South Kensington and Chelsea Mental Health Centre. Dr Hall has been a consultant psychiatrist at the Centre for 23 years, 12 of which she had to put up with me.
We got on extremely well, in large part I think because of her flexible approach. During my especially grim years (2007-10 and 2013-14) she helped organise a high level of support. When it became apparent that antipsychotics weren’t working for me, and they were causing a number of physical health problems, she supported my decision to come off them*.
Thanks to Dr Hall, I have received a lot therapy, which have helped me a great deal.
In the last few years, along with other members of the Community Mental Health Team (CMHT), she’s encouraged me to pursue creative interests.
Psychiatrists can get a bad press, but there are some very good ones out there. Thank you Dr Hall.
*Note I still take some psychiatric medication.
