Anyone in Scotland, see this request from the BBC:

I am a journalist on BBC Scotland’s Disclosure programme. We are currently making a documentary about NHS waiting times – we’ll be examining the figures, targets and exploring what it’s like to be on an NHS waiting list.

 

We are currently hoping to speak to people in Scotland who are on waiting lists for CAMHS. Initially I would like to have an initial informal, confidential conversation with anyone interested in sharing their experience.

 

I wondered whether you might know of anyone in this position, or if you’d be willing to spread the word about our programme in order to encourage people to get in touch?

 

Our programme is due to be broadcast in December, so we are hoping to set up filming as soon as possible.

 

Do let me know if you would like to chat about this on the phone or if you have any questions at all.

 Many thanks for your time, I hope to hear from you soon.

 Best wishes,

 Yasmin

A note from me (Eva): if you do speak with journalists, be informed about some dos and dont's (so you don't allow stuff that reinforces myths, or stuff that would 'trigger' a sufferer). I think FEAST has guidelines for that. In the UK, charity BEAT has good media guidelines.
