HI ALL, THIS IS MY FIRST SHARE AS A NEW MEMBER OF THIS GROUP. MY CONCERN IS WITH THE DETERIORATION OF OUR MENTAL HEALTH SYSTEM, SPECIFICALLY, THE PSYCHIATRIC ADMISSION POLICY INVOLVING A SEVERE LACK OF BEDS, OVERWORKED STAFF AND THE INCREASING INABILTY TO TREAT THE ACUTELY ILL , DUE TO MANDATORY SHORTENED LENGTH OF STAYS. AS A MENTAL HEALTH WORKER AND ADVOCATE, I HAVE SEEN THE RECIDIVISM RATE ONLY INCREASE AND INDIVIDUALS CAUGHT IN THIS SYSTEM PHYSICALLY AND EMOTIONALLY SUFFER. MENTAL HEALTH CARE TOUCHES ALL OF US, OR WILL SOONER OR LATER. I BELIEVE IN EMPOWERMENT AND HOPE! THANK YOU, ALL. ELIZABETH (LIZZY) D.
