Unexpected knowledge – Things I’ve learned since being sectioned

Brings a whole new dimension to shared learning; we all have something to learn from this………

Sectioned

Unexpected

Since starting to have mental health problems and then being sectioned, I’ve learned about things I never imagined existed or would need to know about.

  • I’ve learned that being taken to hospital by police counts as an arrest that could show up on checks done for prospective employers.

  • I’ve learned that mental health problems are often treated with purely physical means, and that merely keeping someone alive is seen as success enough.

NHS Change Day – shared conversations

NHS Change Day is on 3rd March 2014 and is a frontline led movement; the largest of its kind, with a shared purpose of improving health and care. The mission is to inspire and mobilise people everywhere, staff, patients and the public to something better together to improve care for people.

This is my pledge: “I pledge to involve people that use services in decisions and actions to improve planning care. I will do this through promoting shared conversations between people that use services, supporters, clinicians, managers and leaders, starting with LYPFT Planning Care Network”. What will your pledge be? – visit NHS Change Day to make, join or like a pledge.

If you use mental health services or are a carer/supporter of someone who does, then please come along to this event to join in the conversation.  If you are a member of staff or one of our partner agencies, then please let the people you work with know about this opportunity to get involved in sharing views.

Hope to see you there
