    I suppose we’ll have to have a crisis before anything is done as usual. Maybe a few Tory MP’s pushed off the platform in the tube? 🙂

    I went into hospital voluntarily in sept 2012 with severe depression. I was treated like a sectioned patient. I was not allowed out even for walks. after two weeks in i wanted to go for an hour with my wife for something to eat on my birthday. i was not allowed out. then i was promised walks outside with a member of staff everyday, but i asked five days in a row and got the reply that they were too short staff. I received no treatment in the hospital about from dispensing my medication twice per day. Unless i made a point of speaking to the nurses, i was only approached by nurses about three times during my three week stay. I only got out after weeks by getting a mental health advocate to speak on my behalf at a weekly review meeting. on the two times i had asked to discharge myself previously i was threatened with a mental health section.

    I would never voluntarily admit myslef to hospital again, as i have received much more support within the community.

    What a wonderful ‘Big Caring Society’ we would all have if these Tories were to get another term in power!

    I’ve forgotten *WHO caused* – all this world-wide necessity for austerity? Can someone remind me?
