I am new to this but hope someone could help or advise. I have a 15 yr old daughter who has been medically unfit for school due to general anxiety disorder and is taught in small tuition centre. There is a history of self harm currently under CAMHS and on sertraline 125mg per day..recently her mood has worsened had a candid chat where she expressed she couldn't see the point to anything.. there has been issues in the past and she visists a counsellor once week for over 12 months. A visit to CAMHS today was requested by myself for her psychiatrist one the back of a conversation we had earlier in the week where she again mentioned that she can't see the point of anything and if she wasn't scared she would commit suicide..
The meeting with the psychiatrist this afternoon proved futile.. she has a new care provider as old one retired last week still yet to meet her and she will assess low moods and risk but no urgency..at my wits end and worried sick.. feel completely helpless as a parent and live in constant fear she will do something she can't come back from.
I would be really interested to know if anyone has had similar experiences and whilst they are not considering changing medication if there are any natural remedies..exercise groups that might help in steadying her mood if only for a brief time.
would appreciate any advice. thanks in advance.
