I have decided to undertake a project. It relates to an issue very close to my heart. I would like to write about how mental health patients are being treated by medical professionals. We’re written off, have our physical symptoms dismissed and sometimes are even punished because we attempted suicide.
I have my own stories. But I’m looking for others. Whatever your diagnosis, your age (consent required for those under age), sex, country. I want to know what experiences you, as a mental health patient have had with the medical world. GP’s, ER doctors and nurses, specialists – even psych professionals who did not act appropriately. I want stories both good and bad. I would love to get in touch with any non-psych field doctors who work with psych patients as well. I badly want to do this and put the information out there – but I need your help. If you can, please forward this along to anyone that you think may be interested.
If you’d like to get in touch, please contact me through my email:
Thank you so much guys!
