There's one thing why I hate psychiatrists and that's because they have more power than medics - THEY CAN DETAIN PEOPLE UNDER THE MENTAL HEALTH ACT! To me that is disgusting, putting someone away from society as though they've committed a serious crime. A person can be suicidal. What's the solution? Lock them up and prescribe copious amounts of psychotropic drugs in the hope that it'll numb the feelings. To be detained under the mental health act a person must have an identifiable mental disorder. Being suicidal doesn't automatically mean that a persons ill so where's the justification in locking someone up in a lunatic ward? Doctors don't seem to understand that my suicidal ideation has nothing to do with mental illness. I've made a conscious, clear minded decision that I want to end my life so I can't see why people won't accept my wishes and leave me to do away with myself. The system is disgusting. Being sectioned is the medical equivalent of being in prison.
