Customer Question

I am really worried about my mum. She has been suffering from depression for several years now. We have always known that she lies but it has just cone to light that her lies are way out of hand she has been telling everyone for months her husband is working away and that they are seperated but it turns out it is all lies she also worried most of the family last night saying that social services had rang and were going to take my kids but it is all lies. She never even admits she is lieing. We need help we know she isnt well but the doctors wont talk to us what can we do i really think she needs an assessment

I have asked several times for a psychiatrict assessment, they don't do anything about it. when i took her to the doctor last week, i agreed to wait in the hall andi heard the doctor say it was nice my mum was allowed out to play without us being with her. comments like that have now meant my mother has stopped taking her anti depressants and thinks it is the rest of us that need to be seen
