  1. I think health professionals do care. I am one I never ignored anyone in a&e and neither did my colleagues. This is partly true as nhs mental health is underfunded. I stopped somebody walking out into the road on xmas day. So I think this is pretty pathetic. Health professionals do care. But we dont have the funding.

  2. i have ASD( autism spectrum disorder ) and there is no support out there for me as the young lady said in this documentary said
    ' They make you feel like a burden ' i wonder what the future holds for me

  3. I don't think financial backing will help. A nice dose of humanity and understanding might be more useful.

    Those things are free and in many cases can help just as much as medications etc.

  4. Just interested to know how many people commenting here voted Conservative recently? If you did, then there's no point leaving negative comments here about the NHS. Use your vote and get the change that we all need for better mental health provision.

  5. The NHS crisis could be resolved overnight if non UK residents (ie people who had not been here for 7 years) paid an extra 10% on income tax until they were here 7 years. Why should they get the benefits of a NHS schools roads social security having never paid into it?
    This would be an excellent policy to bring in with brexit. Yes you can stay here however you will have to pay a levy my friend. It can't all be take take take while British people give give give

  6. It is not just the young people in this country. It is across the board young and old all because of "cut backs" fuckers want us out of the way and reinstate the dumping ground of institutions to be abused and neglected by nurses x x

  7. In the U.S. things are not much better. If you don't have money, or are not qualified for the dole, you are pretty much on your own. Even private insurance, which is outrageously expensive, there are annual and sometimes lifetime caps on mental health services. People with chronic, lifelong mental illness; ie schizoaffective D/O, Bipolar, or schizphrenia, have alot of problems accessing proper care. Thankfully, there is much more awareness of mental illnesses like eating disorders, anorexia, bipolar, than there used to be, however Americans still struggle to get proper, or especially, long term care for their mental illnesses. Sadly, many Americans who suffer mental ilness find themselves homeless, totally isolated without any care at all. Thankyou for speaking out as a young person suffering with mental illness ( that took great courage). Hopefully, people of all ages will see this documentary, and will persistantly seek care either for themselves, their friends, or family members who are suffering. I find it terribly sad that wealthy countries like UK and America, who are world powers, treat mental illness with so much indifference, and consistantly cut the budgets that fund mental health services, and apparently don't even find it important enough to properly train medical students to recognize symptoms of major mental illnesses. In America, if you go to A&E (ER) you will most likely see someone from the billing department, before you ever get to see a doctor.

  8. My younger brother is schizo affective as well, and we live in the US. He's gone through SO much and gotten so little support from the US healthcare system. Obamacare has been a huge improvement for him, but it's still a struggle and he isn't taken seriously very often.

  9. You have to fight for appointments, referrals, phone calls… But these are the things that mental illness stops you from being able to do. How can you fight for support when you can't even make a phone call?

  10. I noticed that my son had problems from the age of around 3 he was in and out of cahms from 6 to 11 years old and then from 11 to 15 he was under midland psychology. there has been no diagnosis to his problems coz he can't speak when he's anxious yet none of the so called "professionals"have picked up on this and labelled him as rude and uncooperative or manipulative, he is now 16 and can't go out the house and can only speak to 2 people and still he is getting no help. the mental health system is failing big time

  11. NHS guidelines for treating borderline personality disorder. If someone with said disorder presents at A and E after taking an overdose , have a nurse be nice to lull them into a false sense of security. then when they are being treated for their overdose, have two seperate doctors come in at random times and interrogate them, accuse them of attention seeking, and then after bully them into leaving. When said patient says they will leave feeling he is a burden threaten them with the police if they do leave before the assessment. After the 'assessment', a phone call from a psychiatric nurse, accuse them of time wasting for waiting for the assessment and then keeping asking them when they are going.

    Treatment objective… the borderline patient now feels unable to ask for help and will no longer visit another A and E if in crisis. or even for a physical complaint feeling he will be treated like that again. Resources will be saved, as if he is an attention seeker he will no longer visit A and E, if he in fact isn't he will kill himself again saving resources. A kind of modern day witch trial by the NHS.

    That was my experience and from reading around it is no uncommon. Much was said in that documentary and elsewhere about lack of resources being the reason for NHS problems. I don't think so, those doctors seemed to have plenty of time to come in and have a go at me and play mind games,one came in with a cup of coffee and was drinking it while explaining to me how his 4 months in a psychiatric unit qualifies him to know exactly what kind of person Iam . I personally think the problems in A and E when it comes to mental health presentation, and else where in the mental health system, are far more complex than it being simply about lack of money and also involve attitudes amongst staff, stigma, and recruiting poor staff.

  12. This video describes me ALL OVER. I have another suicide attempt on hold (this is over 20 years failings. My Local MP doesn't care after our texting. She just called the Police and I am sick of the sight of them -nothing personal.) Just read all my comments on Britain's Mental Health Crisis Documentary because if I survive, I am going to the Paper who took an interest. I will get it out like a CANCER!

  13. Suffered with mental health for at least 10 years and resorted in becoming a major alcoholic (been in recovery two years) where do I start- I was admitted to hospital around 25 times in one year with alcoholism and mental health and psychosis it's shocking – A&e want you discharged as soon as possible, must of been assessed and discharged 100 times sometimes being physically removed by security staff after pleading for help! All aspects of mental health and nhs Is failing badly !

  14. I was recently told I had borderline personality disorder, I've been with the crisis team in my area 3 times over the past few months along with many visits to A&E, the team I'm meant to be seeing said they saw me as a priority and said they'd contact me within 2 weeks, just over 2 weeks has passed and I've heard nothing?? I've literally had so many people harass different services to try and help me and it's all pretty hopeless I must say! The NHS really should have a better hold on the mental health side of things.

  15. I lost my youngest son who was severally depressed and it's horrible.Ive often said why him not me.Ibattle depression everyday and have had many struggles in life but I keep on going I have two other sons and alot of beautiful grandkids that keep me going.I have been dealing with my brothers problems for several years now.he is skitzophrenic and has major depression and anxiety orders.I have begged for people to listen to me and put him in a long term facility and they put him him for a week or two and let him go.he also suffers from alcoholism.I know God keeps angels watching over him.its a miracle he's alive.Please pray for him .Thank you.
