That's an idea Shaun, my only concern is that I can only download a small amount of content over the internet before I have to pay again (I use one of those o2 pay as you go mobile broadband dongles.) I want each payment to last the full month so I try not to watch too many videos online, a 45 min to an hour programme would probably take a good lump off! I might getting something better than that dongle quite soon though so it means I could download and use iplayer in the future.
I don’t know tbh? it just seemed a lot more civilised than my experiences of being threatened with being sectioned and also of others who I have met while on sections and the dealings with MH professional didn’t seem life like to me.
The Bipolar guy I did get a strong feeling of him being abandoned by MH services when he was alone in the bungalow, he didn’t say anything on the film but to me it was written all over his face! ...maybe that’s just me transferring my feelings onto the situation?
I suppose in a one off hours programme you cant go too deep into issues but it did seemto be a bit surface skimming to me.
and yes the chap whod rented a bungalow in the "up" phase of his bipolar episode was abandoned .. no cooker and very little furniture ,, he was an intelligent bloke and looked so lost and bewildered . Im sure a good part of that was around how a supposedly civilised society had allowed himto be left to flonder like that..
Care in the community????? Pah Bah and humbug !
