Ed Miliband’s Speech/Janet Street-Porter/Jeremy Clarkson

It is good to hear Ed Miliband speak on mental health.   When I called into Parliament myself no-one seemed to care less and could not help in any way.

I would like to see Jeremy Clarkson and Janet Street-Porter  spend some time on an acute ward and go and visit some of the patients there.  At the Bethlem Royal Hospital there were hardly any visitors to patients, there was nothing to do at weekends and my daughter referred to this as “prison”.  I also wish they would help me in my campaign for better mental Health care and assessments done by Dr William Walsh to determine the underlying cause rather than dish out all these drugs.   They are entitled to their opinion but obviously know nothing about mental health and it is a pity they do not put their efforts more positively into understanding and caring about others who are suffering deeply.  They should perhaps also read some of the books out like Pharmageddon, David Healy,  Molecules of Emotion by Dr Candace Pert, Nutrient Power by Dr William Walsh, Prozac Panacea Pandor by Dr Ann Blake Tracy.  Anyone who knows nothing about mental health should read up on the facts and go to visit the patients.  Many of these patients have been abused.  Some have suffered severe trauma –  terrible pictures are painted of people diagnosed with serious conditions such as Schizophrenia and there is so much ignorance and this is not helped fueled by the comments of celebrities such as these.

In fact, I have added Jeremy Clarkson and Janet Street-Porter on Twitter.   I should really praise them for their outspoken views because is their comments that are drawing attention to mental health which is not a subject anyone likes to talk about. I see their comments in a positive light for this reason as any mention about mental health is good and brings about debate as in this case.   There are of course many who would be deeply offended by their comments however I hope they continue with their onslaught, as there will be more and more publicity as well as the fact their comments can actually educate others.  If these comments make other people curious enough to know more then that is a good thing as I have met the most wonderful people who happen to be mentally ill and it is lack of knowledge that leads to ignorance. 

The plight of people like my daughter drugged up to her neck on chemicals with multiple diagnoses who once had a job, was learning to drive and doing all the normal things and then she had a breakdown is very sad.  She is only in her mid-twenties and is miles away from home and family.  The first cure was drug after drug and none have worked.  There are no alternative care centres in the UK and groups like Chy Sawel and Soteria want to set up more humane care for mental health patients and then there are the wonderful centres in the States such as Earth House – this is what we need over here so that patients can be reduced off the drugs slowly and gradually even if they are kept on a minimal of drugs so that they can at least function and do things.

I wonder what Jeremy Clarkson and Janet Street-Porter think of the drugging of children and the elderly which has also affected my family.

It would be good if they can turn their attention to speaking out against the shocking care on offer in a positive way and to help get projects like Chy Sawel and Soteria off the ground because I stand to lose my daughter on the high level of drugs they are giving.

    Everything what is written on this blog is PURE TRUTH!!!
    I agree with everything because I experience this abuse with psychiatrists in London.

    My wife is drugged against her will with antipsychotics injections and even if she is no longer in danger to herself or others she is locked up in mental hospital on hypothesis that if discharged she would stop her drugs.So it means she needs to stay in mental hospital indefinately.IT IS FALSE IMPRISONMENT.
    PSYCHIATRIST ARE CRIMINALS -LEGALISED CRIMINALS.

    NHS use a MHA law to section people and drug them with medications.
    They do not do proper assessments for underlying medical disease.
    YOU CANNOT STOP THESE DRUGS AS WELL BECAUSE YOU WILL BECOME MANIAC AND PSYCHOTIC AGAIN WHICH THEY WILL LINK IT TO RELAPSE INSTEAD OF WITHDRAWAL.

    ,,IT IS DRUG-INDUCED MOOD DISORDER WITH MANIAC,PSYCHOTIC FEATURES WHICH EXACTLY MIMICS THE SYMPTOMS OF MENTAL ILLNESS.”

    Psychiatrist will tell you you relapse because you are non-compliant!!!
    THIS IS A CRIME AS IT WAS LOBOTOMY IN THE PAST.

    HUMAN RIGHTS ACT are broken all the time.

    There is not any scientific evidence what causes mental illness!!!
    No blood tests,no brain scans,nothing, JUST THE OPINION OF THIS PSEUDO-EXPERTS WHO BUILT THEIR EMPIRE ON DISTURBED PEOPLE LIVES!!!

    human wake up we need to abolish that tyranny.UK IS TOTALITARIAN COUNTRY like George Orwell wrote in ,,1984″ book.It is happening everything what he predicted!!!

    NO CHEMICAL IMBALANCE!!! IT IS SCUM.

    Read Peter Breggin books like ,,Psychiatric drug withdrawal”, ,,Brain disabling treatments” , ,,Your drug may be your problem”

    ALL THESE DISORDERS ARE BECAUSE OF DRUGS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      Thank you so much for your comments. Yes what I write is true – I do not hide behind a false name. I do believe things are slowly changing and that many more people are speaking out and there is a lot going on behind the scenes. I will write to you privately. I wish you to know more – unless someone is affected the public do not know what is really going on as it is not being fairly reported. YES HUMAN RIGHTS ARE BEING ABUSED. THERE IS NO THING AS CHEMICAL IMBALANCE. THERE ARE THOUSANDS OF DIAGNOSES WITHOUT SCIENTIFIC PROOF AND IN MANY CASES TRAUMA IS BEHIND MENTAL ILLNESS AND THERE ARE NO TESTS TO SEE IF SOMEONE CAN METABOLIZE THE DRUGS LET ALONE TO SEE IF THEY HAVE ANY ALLERGIES OR UNDERLYING HEALTH PROBLEMS. ONCE ON THE DRUGS THERE ARE NO FACILITIES TO HELP SOMEONE COME OFF SAFELY BUT DID YOU KNOW YES IT CAN BE DONE! SOMEONE IS ONLY EVER TAKEN OFF THE DRUGS IF THEY DEVELOP A BLOOD DISORDER FOR INSTANCE AND THE DRUGS CAUSE DIABETES. THERE IS MUCH IN THE WAY OF BULLYING GOING ON TOO AND THREATS TO DISPLACE YOU IF YOU DO NOT AGREE OR GIVE A DECISION PROMPTLY. I WOULD CALL IT HARRASSMENT.

      MANY PEOPLE ARE LOCKED UP YET ARE NOT A DANGER TO SOCIETY IT IS SO VERY SAD.

      I AM GOING TO WRITE TO YOU PRIVATELY NOW.
