We are told in the newspapers of recent date that another woman named walked out of one of our exclusive private hospitals....the presumption is suicide. We are not dealing with mental health. Some say there are so many groups representing suicide that it exceeds the number of people who commit suicide. Personally the people I have contacted and successfully are the Samaritans. As a public patient for nearly six months in a psychiatric hospital, my in-hospital 'mentor' Eleanor, a patient, once a teacher, told me what she was going to do. I reported it. She walked out of the hospital and into the nearest and Eleanor took her life. These are the silent voices lost in the cries of so many historic scandals that can only yield an acknowledgement and a monetary compensation payment. It is now we need to think about vulnerable people. Charles Murray spoke about the 'Underclass'. Mental health challenged and linked closely to drug/alcohol addiction puts people on the path to disaster and shame. They are defined by their bad teeth, their palor, their inability to work, their path to homelessness or reliance on their family for support financial and otherwise. The hostels: they should be empowering people to independent living. They do not. I think what the one liner in the US is 'Orange is the New Black'. Mergers and acquisitions is what the business markets tell us lie ahead. Mental health needs to tap into their expertise and arrive at a suitable programme for people who encounter mental health related situations. One more point: methadone is the artificial happy pill. Remember now people are living longer. Dependence needs to be tackled and a good start would be to provide methadone minus the sugar which destroys the teeth.
