What happens when treatment comes to an end?
When your community mental health service (which may include a personality disorder service) thinks that you are well enough to leave the service, your care will be transferred to a primary care professional such as a GP for continued support. This should be discussed with you and your family or carers (if you agree to them being involved) in advance. Together you should also agree a plan that sets out the steps you can take to cope with crises and how you can contact your community mental health service again if needed.
When treatment comes to an end this should be discussed with you in advance and should not happen abruptly. The ending of treatment or your time with the service should take place over a period of time.
