"Every Kinda Fruitcake In Jersey!!!"

"THE BIG SOCIETY IN ACTION!!!"

8 comments:

  1. sending people to prison with serious mental health issues is not helping them at all,it just pushing there problems onto some 1 else.the big issue here is that the help for people with mental health problems is getting less and less in jersey,with serious cut backs on spending in the mental health sector.it would have been better sending him to st saviours hospital where he would have been given the help he so obviously needs.

    You are so right! This is so wrong! The poor man is crying out for help and prison is all he gets! It is so obvious the authorities don't care. It is just a job to them.

    It is so easy for the Health Authorities to send people with mental health issues out to fend for themselves in order that money may be saved.

    Sadly many people want to hide matters like these under a stone and forget about them. Mental illness is a stigma. Alcoholism is an illness! Often alcoholics are self-medicating because of a mental illness!

    All this is so very wrong and makes me very sad. Come on Magistrates get your act together or are you all queueing in line for 'Christmas'.

  3. Ahimsa, I personally know the author of the first comment (as I do you) and that person has also been through mental health hell with our buckled authorities.

    That person has also told me that the outpatients mental health will be closing down very shortly!

    Then where can anyone go for help?

  4. I don't know where they will go for help Ian! Even charities will be pushed to help through shortage of cash probably.

    Dealing with these issues needs proper training. The world is descending into the Steel age. Surely the confluence is nearly upon us and we can look forward to a Golden age once again, where all are cared for.

  5. The world is in our hands Ahimsa, nobody elses, especially figments of our imagination....And so I give you one of my favorite quotes of all time....

    "Seek always Peace. Wear no path for the footsteps of others unless the soul is endangered. We are linked by our souls. To endanger one, endangers all, but when one is endangered, then the soul must become a warrior."

  6. i for one used to drink loads to forget the living hell that was my serious mental health issues.when you drink you get drunk and you forget about your problems for a few hours but the next day you wake up but your still in the living nightmare so you drink more,and it goes on and on like that for months if not years.help over here is very few and far between now.there are a lot of alcoholics with serious mental health issues,but the help for mental health issues is in 1 place and the help for alcoholics is in antoher place,why not combine them all together 1 place?and are the wardens in the prison trained to deal with people with serious mental health issues ?? i think not eh !

  7. I know quite a few of the wardens and they are good guys and make life as easy as possible for prisoners. As for mental health training, I don't know, but I am aware they have a regular nurse trained in that division.
