What I want care providers to know: Clients give their perspectives
We asked people who have experienced mental illness to share their perspectives on the care they have received. They describe their experiences leading up to diagnosis – in hospitals, clinics and doctors' offices. They tell us what they needed then and what they need now as they manage their illness.
