Mental health petition
« on: Dec 04, 2014, 07:03:23 PM »
Hello all,
There is a petition which is dear to me and it would mean a lot if you could take a look and possibly sign it.
It is calling for local mental health trusts to liaise with local police forces in order to educate them about mental health issues. When someone is in crisis the likelihood of coming into contact with the police is quite high and so some form of education is crucial.
Please do have a look, regardless of whether or not you are directly affected by mental health problems, and please share it.

The Law got enough to do as it is!
Wouldn't it be apparent if there were MHPs by the computer! ?
or
failing that, perhaps initially by the nature of the call or the scene when they arrived?

Agree, sometimes they miss clues which turn a simple traffic stop into a court hearing 12 months down the line and trash someone's ability to cope in the process.
Shoving people with mental health issues through the police system is brutal at best.

Some police are OK though, some actually walk away because they don't know how to handle the situation.

Signed without a second thought! And sharing the link!
The police too often criminalise people with mental health issues....
The #292 Rule: Never be ashamed of yourself. Because you are born into one skin. You can scar it, stretch it, burn it, mark it, tan it, peel it. But you are always in it, so you might as well learn to love it.

Mental health needs more awareness in all sectors (hopefully leading to more understanding and less stigma in general). Definitely signed.
