We like these viewpoints..what do you think?:)

I joined Twitter recently, and though I’m not a very good “Tweeter”, I’ve found some very interesting viewpoints which I’d like to share with you , for you to share your opinions about them:

1)    WHAT ANTI-STIGMA CAMPAIGNS RISK DOING IS ALTERING THE REALITY OF MENTAL ILLNESS TO SUIT PUBLIC OPINION, RATHER THAN ALTERING PUBLIC OPINION TO SUIT THE REALITY OF MENTAL ILLNESS.         George Gillett @ george_gillett

Niall Boyce @The Lancet Psych # Ox Psych 50

2)   Here is an article by a doctor, who is also a patient, about continuity of care, especially relational continuity of care – quite interesting but easy to read – What do you think?

3)   Do you remember the Article in the Guardian, “It’s nothing like a broken leg”, which kick started our campaign last September?  Well here’s another equally hard hitting article which is just what we are finding is happening today!

Has your loved one been “rolled off”?  What do you think?
