After all these years …

 

Does not acting on evidence of human rights abuse within the Mental Health system - make “boards” complicity in the crime ?

 

Recently - I read the website – Lake Alice + was moved to tears …

 

Does ignoring the data + therefore human rights abuse within the mental health system – mean the Integrated Care board + Health + well being board are complicity in criminal acts ?

 

We do keep telling these boards about the human rights abuse

 

Electro convulsive treatment - restraints - seclusion - serious incidents - forced medication - forced imprisonment on Mental Health wards - are human rights abuses

 

We do keep telling these boards about the medicalisation of distress

 

The world health organisation called for global radical change within the mental health system – two years ago …

We strive to be rights based – integrated – strength based – person centred in all our work

We plan to send this data to the “leaders” of the Integrated Care Boards – in the hope they will review + action

 

 

For example stopping Electro convulsive treatment now …

 

 

It is clear the current Mental Health system is racist – sexist – ageist – ableist
