Official Response to my Complaint

As some of you know, I recently made a complaint to my CMHT about their lack of care over a seven-month period. I have blogged about it twice, but here it the actual complaint I sent (with names removed for confidentiality reasons) with notes as to the official response I finally received this morning. The complaint was initially sent on the 2nd of April.

Another Product of Welfare UK

In a little cafe in Scotland, an unemployed single mother on benefits had dreams of being an author. As poor as she could be without being homeless, and in the grip of depression, she battled against her circumstances and was able to complete her first novel. Although she managed to get an agent, nobody wanted to publish her book, and even when she eventually got the green light, she was told to get a day job, as the book was unlikely to make money. The book that was unlikely to make money was the first book in the Harry Potter series, and the unemployed single mother on benefits was none other than J.K. Rowling.

I've seen them for mental health bloggers, beauty bloggers, fashion bloggers, Mummy bloggers and just about every other type of blogger there is. If you haven't seen one of these types of awards, then I'm guessing you're not on Twitter!
