Despite the safeguards, which aren't as safe as they should be, and mental health act principles, which aren't always (or even often?) put into practice. And a surplus of meetings that we can attend. With managers, organisations, government, groups. Resulting in nothing much, except talk and no action. Or so it seems.
However some of us are in this for the long haul. We're going to keep on keeping on, until there is accountability and person centred psychiatric care. Until psychiatric staff put the principles into practice. Until the mental health act safeguards are safe. Even better if and when force is unacceptable in psychiatric treatment. And when there is no more getting away with it.
