With technology and integrity, a door has been opened on this secret institution. I wanted to say something about my experience of care here.
Some of the patients here have committed serious crimes but do they in reality deserve more understanding from the press and authorities. In reality a lot of patients are crazy diamonds and when they tell you their story you realise it’s not surprising they got ill with the stress of all the abuse they suffered. Mental illness is indiscriminate and to tell someone to pull out of it is like telling someone with heart disease to stop it. Some here I think have evil inside though and the two need to be separated especially as you can’t punish an illness out of someone. I think some staff try to do that though.
The consequent breach of trust and unnecessary stress of threats provocation, bullying, slander and exploitation usually ends badly. Abuse is a total false economy. The hat trick serviceoften feels just a stressful pointless game where it seems a patient’s job is to make staff feel better.
That’s why these places and prisons and the justice system need transparency to the public for morality, health and safety, Justice and financial accountability.
It’s all been a closed shop for too long where a lot of the authorities consider themselves the elite and don’t even like the public. There’s another word for elite – arrogant and consequently a hypocrite. Its not a healthy state of mind, I pity them.
Some patients have suffered so much abuse they momentarily lose their temper. Its individual. Many should be able to get help before an incident You cannot even smoke to de-stress. Trust is so important for approachability. If someone falls ill, will they want to go to a place where they can’t smoke? These places should be scientific with a genuine spirit of help for lessons to learn.
Years ago a lot of the male staff were uncaring and would be two faced and bullying in their behaviour.
Staff many years ago behaved as if they can do what they want when they want.
Lessons need to be learnt for the good of everyone concerned. The hat trick service needs to provide genuine, honest health and safety. .
Staff on my ward are so far excellent and have allowed me peace and rest. I find the forgiveness of Jesus and the love of god is the most powerful care and healthy state of mind.
