I think that you need to be in good therapy. I think what can decrease suicidality is the feeling of being contained. That should come from a therapist, etc.
I would advise seeking a second opinion, perhaps from someone outside of your mhs.
You don't live in NZ by any chance do you? The service here is pretty lame too.
Regarding the meds you could sign yourself into a psych ward and go through a supervised detox. There is a post by an expert in the expert activity box. It seemed a slightly different approach to drug detox.
I think you're going to need medical supervision to wean yourself off all those meds.
Have you got a good support person who you could speak too?
Are you able to access a different service to the one you are currently in? Are you able to talk to a GP about your situation?
