Living with schizophrenia: 'There is a wall of doubt, stigma and pain'

I'll be glad when the police leave vulnerable people alone, I didn't accept I was ill and didn't want to go to hospital.
The police a female officer floored me and handcuffed me, I wasn't a danger to anyone. I had bruises all over my body. I know the CPN's could have persuaded me, they didn't even try.
I complained to the police, the officers lied they said I threw myself to the floor, which I didn't.
I hope the publics perception of schizophrenia improves.
