That is exactly what happens, even when in the system it feels like they are ticking off a number of boxes, nothing more.

A friend's son in my area went to his CPN and GP telling them that he was suicidal. They did nothing to help and a week later his mother found him dead.

They maybe better qualified but I know that in 1 year of appointments every 3 months I saw 3 different people. Each appointment lasted 10 mins and was simply a meds review.
