  • Dr McLaren is absolutely right. This injustice happened to me: I was beaten up at home on weekend leave from the psychiatric hospital, my abusive (late) mother told my elder sister to go and ring the psychiatric hospital, she did, screaming: “Take her away! Take her away!” And they did, no questions asked, never saying who they were or anything. My mother had told them I had threatened someone with a knife which was a lie. Fortunately, the person I was supposed to have threatened wrote a letter to the psychiatrist and said it never happened. But all this was quite legal under the Mental Health Act in England. Can happen to anyone so don’t believe it can’t.
