“I really can’t thank you enough for all your help and support and I hope you know how grateful I am and how much I have appreciated it.  I was really desperate when I found your website and I am sure that I would not have found the courage and momentum to write all those letters if you hadn’t inspired me.  I didn’t think there were such genuine and compassionate people like you around and I wish you the very best in everything you do in the future.  Once again many, many, thanks.” Family member, 14 March 2014

“I have been quite overwhelmed by the information and conversation over the past 24 hours between us.

We are very grateful.” Family member, 5 Aug 2012

  1. I speak as somebody with a mental health issue, yes I do agree that something should be done about the violent behavior that sufferers of mental health problems use against the public. But that public also includes other mental health sufferers – yes we get attacked and suffer threats and constantly fear the more violent members of our community. But how many times do these attacks are ‘smoothed away’ sometimes because the law perceives that somebody with a mental health issue, is unable to represent themselves in a court of law or will simply dismiss that type of victim is untrustworthy, despite a lot of the times, physical evidence.

    Sadly too many times – and the staff of mental health units are more likely to ‘sweep attacks under the carpet’ simply because it’s the easiest thing to do. Rather than employ more clinicians over management and administrative staff. And again this is sadly the problem Mental Health Unit Budgets go more on Managers and Administrative staff than Clinicians and violent attacks and murders will conutine to RISE until the ratio of Clinicians is increased and Managers and Admin staff are cut dramatically back.
