I was sorry to hear my guest blogger is back in hospital again. Here is an example of where care is failing when “treatment of enforced drugging” does not work. I believe a much different approach needs to be taken especially for those who are “treatment resistant” to the drugs or may dislike taking them due to terrible side effects. How can this be achieved unless there are specialist facilities provided here in the UK and I do not mean a hospital – a prison like environment. I mean somewhere far more therapeutic like Chy Sawel where patients would be treated humanely and proper assessments given. If there are centres provided that involve professionals in quiet and peaceful locations in the right environment I do not see any problem. I just do not believe anyone should just be written off and that nothing is done about a situation where care simply does not work. The drugs do not cure someone and can in fact make someone worse that is for sure and what if someone is misdiagnosed or are suffering from serious physical health problems – nothing should be ignored. All the more reason to have some specialist facilities set up with the Country’s leading experts being involved who know everything about the drugs,nutrition, intolerance/food allergies etc as well as those involved in intensive trauma therapy/PTSD. If someone is not getting any better they could have the wrong diagnosis and this needs to be clarified by leading experts in the field of say autism and PTSD and then instead of just writing someone off, a new plan of treatment is agreed upon.
I will soon be including some of the writing of my guest blogger who has written a whole piece on “New Psychiatry” and I believe he has made some very valid points which I will be featuring shortly.
I will add to this blog as I am impressed with the brilliant writing skills of this individual and feel what a waste when someone like this could have so much to offer – there are many others like my guest blogger who are forced to take drugs – something could have happened to that person – maybe they have been misdiagnosed or have not been properly assessed.
