Dear 123101 6,
Firstly, welcome to the forums we are so glad that you found your way to this supportive and welcoming community. We hope that you find ideas, options and support from the shared experiences and knowledge of all our members.
We can hear from your post that you have been struggling with these thoughts of Self-Harm and Suicide for an extended period, we hope you acknowledge the effort and strength you have displayed persevering and seeking help. Being unable to get the assistance you need can be extremely frustrating and you are understandably exhausted with this process, but we encourage you to keep seeking the aid of mental health services.
It is fantastic that you are engaged with multiple professionals, have you discussed the ongoing issues and inability to get help when needed with them? You have stated that your family are ‘unable to keep you safe’, have you talked to them and expressed that you do not feel safe and desire hospitalization and treatment?
The NSW Mental Health Line is a state-wide telephone number which puts you in touch with your
local mental health service. Staffed by mental health professionals, the line gives NSW residents
access to expert mental health advice, support and referrals for people dealing with a mental health
problems. Where appropriate they can put you in contact with the local mental health crisis or acute care team. This is the recommended contact to reach out to regarding wanting admission to hospital.
