I have treatment resistant depression that's worsened in the last decade. I've been treated like a nuisance by bolitho despite only ever wanting to get better. Treatment just trails off and you have to return to stage one every time you gain strength to tackle the issues. It's seemingly never ending, and a dangerous cyclical process that does nothing to help sufferers.

We are awaiting a reply to a letter written to CMHT after they twice failed our AS son by letting him "fall through the net" TWICE. The only real help we have had has been from a private psychiatrist. If this reply does not materialise - and we fear it won't - we are planning to make an official complaint.

How American Health Care Killed My Father After the needless death of his father, the author, a business executive, began a personal exploration of a health-care industry that for years has delivered poor service and irregular quality at astonishingly high cost. It is a system, he argues, that is not worth preserving in anything like its current form. And the health-care reform now being contemplated will not fix it. Here’s a radical solution to an agonizing problem.
HealthDay News) -- Nearly 1 in 10 American adults don't take their medications as prescribed because they can't afford to, according to a January data brief published by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's National Center for Health Statistics.
Medications can do wonderful things, from fighting infection to preventing stroke and warding off depression. But medications don’t work if they aren’t taken. Some people don’t take their medications as prescribed because they forget, or are bothered by side effects. A new report from the National Center for Health Statistics shines the light on another reason: some people can’t pay for their medications.
Americans are dying from cancer because they either can’t afford the medications to treat it, or they have the money but refuse to bankrupt their families. Cancer is the second leading cause of death after heart disease in the U.S., claiming more than half a million lives each year. In 2016, it is estimated that 1,685,210 new cases of cancer will be diagnosed in the U.S., amounting to one new diagnosis every 30 seconds.
We all know that healthcare costs in the U.S. are too high. But why is American healthcare so expensive? Some experts blame the desire for profit. Russell Andrews, a neurosurgeon and author of Too Big To Succeed laments “the morphing of American medicine from a function of a humanitarian society into a revenue stream for healthcare profits, drug and medical device companies, hospitals, and insurance companies.

his statistic shows the total revenue of the life and health insurance industry in the United States from 2009 to 2015. In 2015, the U.S. life and health insurance industry generated a total revenue of 848.2 billion U.S. dollars.
Top health insurers profit surge 29 percent to $6 billion - CNBC.com
The industry's net income rose to $13.1 billion, up 46% from a year earlier, according to a report from rating company A.M. Best. Companies saw improvements in most of their business lines, but much of the earnings boost came from higher profitability in their Medicare Advantage divisions and smaller losses in their Obamacare exchange products. "They did lose millions and millions" in Obamacare, said Doniella Pliss, associate director at A.M. Best. But "it doesn't contradict the fact that they did very well in other lines of business."
Profits are booming at health insurance companies The largest health insurance companies in the United States reaped historically large profits in the first quarter of this year, despite all the noise surrounding the Affordable Care Act's individual marketplaces.
