Being a Mental Health patient I have been disturbed by the number of Health professionals who seem to disregard patients.
I have had 3 Strokes and suffer from severe migraine attacks which sometimes require visits to the A&E, at these times I and my family frequently get told that, there is nothing wrong, mental patients when feeling unwell just need the attention.
On one of these occasions I was sent home only to have a stroke a few days later, health professionals need to understand to at times put aside the mental health of the patient and actually diagnose the real physical illness's that people have.
