Thanks for this info. I am working to reform our care in my city and will certain want to get that our local expenses from medicaid. I had sent an email to Miranda regarding this and if you have time to email me directly I can give you the details. In a nutshell I want to establish a Hearing Voices Network here, in addition I would like to establish a drug free or not mandatory crisis center and even a Soteria like house.
From the comments there are a lot of pissed off people here……maybe it is time to do something……start a Hearing Voices Network….another Soteria type house……a crisis house where people might go when they feel like they need love and not drugs……….get to work people….it is up to us.

If I may I will save that quote and use it profusely…brilliant.
Thank you so much
Can I call you PD? you are so right about that. I have been to some parent support groups and some people just don’t want to hear it. NAMI …..hand out the drugs to your kids, your parents, hell just give them to everybody…..surprised they don’t have samples at the meetings.
We all need to be part of the group…………just that simple…..each and everyone of us…….fearlessly facing our own fears of ” not being normal “
Isn’t it great to have someone else tell us how messed up we are……..some how they imagine they can do it better then we can…it would be funny..lol except it is not funny.
Can you elaborate on what might transpire doing a session?
The story that I added a link to is a report from the Denver Post regarding a woman who was tasered and taken to jail while she was naked and getting ready to take a bath..The dangers of the ” wellness check ” .They don’t always go as planned and can have very bad consequences…very bad, including post traumatic stress and more. I would never trust the police to check on any one I cared about…for sure.
There is no question in my mind she will be ” wounded ” forever from that treatment,
This story in the Denver Post should be a real wake up call regarding ” welfare checks”
