From The Guardian: Recent research shows that one in five women and girls are physically restrained in mental health settings in England. There were nearly 2,300 incidents of face-down restraint against girls, compared with fewer than 300 against boys.
So now they need to do “research” on torture. Pardon me if I abstain.
In other news, getting shanked with an iron pipe in the knees tends to cause knee pain. Shocking results!
It’s a poorly written & edited article. It states, literally, that 20% of English women are restrained in residential mental health facilities. In reality, it’s 20% of INPATIENTS, not 20% of the population as a whole. Regardless, the rate of restraint is maybe 99% TOO HIGH…. And inpatient admits, and “sectioning” are grossly overused….
Maybe we should invade England, depose the monarchy, and free the English people from their servitude….
