Avoiding flashing images, epilepsy.

Forego things that call themselves regulators such as “Ombudsman “ because from reviews and conversations there is overwhelming bias. Many working in ombudsman offices are in league with the various departments their business claims to “regulate.”In our society, I believe there needs to be more conversation about mental health. It is obvious that our current mental health system fails everyone it touches and it shows. Those with mental illness or problems are often looked down upon, treated as outcasts, or even excluded from society entirely. Not only that, but the current "solutions" are obviously not working. Therapy is a joke in general, although it does help some. Psychiatrists only seek to medicate you so you can "feel" better. None of these things is treating the underlying problems, only the symptoms. Modern medicine is set up only to treat the symptoms, not address the underlying problems. This is what I believe is the crux of the problem: Too many medical professionals just simply don't care about the people that they treat, in my opinion. You can't talk about these problems with close friends or family, or you'll be labelled "crazy" and treated poorly for it. There is a stigma associated with talking about mental illness in general and even more of a stigma associated with talking about suicide. This community exists to let people talk about these things judgement-free and anonymously.
I want to open up a wider conversation about how we can improve the failed mental health system because the current approach isn't working.
What do you think could be done?
Get rid of the rogue regulators who do no such thing (easier said than done) and have some independent body or new business (there are new campaign groups springing up) hold the dishonest, abusive, in denial narcissistic “professionals” to account.
For this to be possible with individual cases this would depend on complainants having paperwork for their complaints not just phone calls.
Quickest way to get shot down or invalidated is if the ones who you have complaint about can easily dismiss you with “no evidence” rebuttal.
This applies to various sectors but for this discussion the first step is essential that people put their grievances in writing.
I’ve always done this, social landlords, NHS, (pick any bureaucratic service ..) lie so much it teaches you to do it and I *hope* one of my grievances can go to court for resolution. That’s if I ever find a lawyer for this category.
Always persist, never argue minutiae if they deviate, and always let anger subside before replying. Abusers are everywhere.
I agree completely, as a community we should rally against the institutions that keep this practice in place. Let's pick one nation and start campaigning IMO. I recently located the chief psychiatrist in my country and am going to try and make a compelling case to them that this system does more harm then good.
What type of person would you be dealing with?
Eg, Are they closed to emotional appeal? If so and some at the top have seemed colder than ice .. my chief executive experience anyway, you’ll need a different perspective to gain their interest. Who here has sales experience? Use the AIDA model ?
First gain their Attention then Interest .. Desire .. Action.
