Twenty years back this platform was a rogue nuisance demanding the freedom of such information.

Credit to Henry Cooke, Stuff’s head political journalist for his work here. Many individuals suffered the unfortunate consequences of political aggression because the media wasn’t working as it should.

I haven’t suddenly become a STUFF fan, it’s going to take more than this, but it’s a start.

    Shaun Robinson of the Mental Health Foundation said it was “gobsmacking” and “not acceptable” that so much information had been removed from the “scathing” report, which had been a centralised place to keep track of how the mental health system worked.

    A topic that many men experience.
    It says 60% of CTOs are made against males.
    And I have personally felt the power of the state.

    So they can’t say if they are doing the correct thing.
    Those they label with schizophrenia, has good results.
    All the rest, things appear worse.

    I personally think it’s a diagnostic problem.
    Many very different disorders, showing the same symptoms.
    But actually needing different medication.
    The short hello talks with the psychiatrist, with obvious results.
    Guessing, as to the medication they get.

    I have experienced them getting it wrong.
    Compliance is not easy, when the medication is worse than not being on it.
    Compliance is the reason for injections.
    They don’t need to worry about you taking pills.
    And by force give them to you.
    I narrowly avoided that outcome.

    It’s how medication is fine tuned, for that person.
    The role the patients normal doctor has, is undervalued.

    Patients also don’t get an important service.
    Education about there disorder.
    It’s very much an in, and out the door process.

    Return patients is failure.
    You would them argue, about diagnosis.

    Soon DNA tests, may just print out the answer.
    As many disorders are hereditary.
    Helping doctors, who must force medication on people.
    Improving outcomes, by being more correct, first time.

    DNA tests may not find the answer.
    It may do the opposite.
    Saying what the patient, does not have.
    But no answer to the symptoms.

    It would help the doctor however.
    They would not accidentally diagnose, with what the DNA says they don’t have.

    If no examples of the disorder occur without the DNA being present.
    You eliminate that diagnosis, if the DNA is not present.
    A breakdown from environmental events, is not the same as a disorder.
    But they can present to the doctor, with similar symptoms.

    I was diagnosed with an environmental event.
    When I actually have a disorder.
