I been thinking about the biggest reason for Wairarapa driving so many to suicide and its the HEALTH AND DISABILITY COMMISSION. Me and many other people I know have made complaints to them but you are never believed – because the discrimination and persecution of suicidal people is across all PLAYERS in their sick game, they just back each other up.
It is a fact Health and Disability Commission DO NOT get involved in any ‘ACCESS’ to services issues. Phone and ask them if you want proof. Tell them you or someone you know can’t get access to mental health services and they will tell you they can’t get involved.
In the Wairarapa I have been blacklisted by all those PLAYERS, as they are closely aligned and have regular meetings where they gossip about people challenging their incompetence, negligence and discrimination. Over the past week protesting in Masterton I have met several people who are in the same situation – so although some people might get care – there are groups of people purposely denied services.
The head of the DHB and CEO tell board members that all complaints are dealt with by the Health and Disability Commission so they need not worry – but of course this is a lie.
I have made so many complaints to the DHB they blocked me from emailing years ago, I was telling the truth of course, but because Andrew Curtis-Cody is an intelligent psychopath who is an expert in manipulating people I was never believed.
I spent four years with a Health & Disability Advocate Louise Grant trying to get services, sending letters back and forth to Andrew Curtis-Cody, everything failed, I was refused care. Louise agreed with me that I was being treated very badly and not professionally but under the government rules she is not allowed to take matters any further. If the health professional refuses to admit what they have done then she can do nothing. She is also NOT ALLOWED to forward the complaint to the Health and Disability Commission – so I had my HDC advocate completely supporting how badly I was being treated but the Commission refusing to get involved or find in my favour in any of the disputes (about 5 I think).
On one of my many police incarcerations for MY OWN WELFARE (all of which I was taken home distraught with no services) I had mental health staff around the ankles in the police station begging them for services, I was told to get up and not embarrass myself – that I knew there was no services and I shouldn’t go on like that. So when I see that disgusting PR person Anna Cardno saying people should contact suicide services I am extremely angry – because I know there are no services – not for the likes of me anyway – and a group of other people who know their rights and ask for help.
The hatred of suicidal people is across the entire spectrum of PLAYERS in this region (it is an industry here). Many police are the first line of vitriol, insults and discrimination – they love stripping you naked just to degrade you even further – mental health services love it too. Most Police are violent and treat you like a violent criminal, you are handcuffed which really hurts – I suggest people on the Board ask to try some handcuffs to prove how much they hurt – especially when officers put them on really tight to punish you.
THE OTHER VERY IMPORTANT REASON IS THE HIGHEST RATE IN NZ FOR COMPULSORY TREATMENT ORDERS AND FORCED MEDICATING.
The vast majority of mental health workers in this region (that includes all those working in violence, addiction, suicide and mental health and especially Wairarapa doctors) are lazy incompetent unprofessional bigots. They load people up on medication so they will sleep all day, they load people up on medication so they don’t have to ensure they have a safe place to live, enough food to eat and the basic necessities of life. This medicating of people who become suicidal is of course directly related to the take-over of mental health care by corrupt immoral super rich drug companies. Companies who people like Paul Collins and Isbister have shares in, more drugged up people more profit for them.
A counsellor once told me 20% of families are awesome with suicidal and abused people and will help them overcome their suffering. 80% are not – and many of this group will be the reason the person is suicidal – not that anybody wants to admit that and I am usually extremely abused for saying it – but I will anyway. Then there are the families who just don’t know what to do, they rely on health professionals for information and yet are expected to heal the suicidal person themselves. I compare it to a family being expected to perform an extensive operation on someone they love when they are not surgeons.
The government dumping of social problems like suicide, addiction and violence back on the communities who are victims of their horrendous abusive neo-liberal terrorist policies makes me sick to my stomach. That so many people aren’t aware what is happening makes me very sad, I try and tell people, have for years but nobody will listen – nobody who votes National or Act or leads our communities wants to admit what is really going on.
WHAT NEEDS TO HAPPEN
WE NEED A POLICE INVESTIGATION AND PUBLIC INQUIRY INTO MENTAL HEALTH AND RELATED SERVICES IN THE WAIRARAPA. We need an anonymous 0800 number set up so people who have been terrorised, degraded and abused by mental health PLAYERS can phone and be heard, have their complaints taken seriously. Once the Wairarapa DHB and NZ find out what how bad the co-ordinated systemic abuse and discrimination is here I know people will be found criminally negligent under law.
So many appalling doctors, so many nasty police, so many mentally deranged people working in powerful positions in mental health services inflicting serious harm instead of helping those who beg for help.
Following this investigation professional rehabilitation services and facilities should be set up to provide professional care to suicidal, mentally injured and ill people. This must address the serious housing issues and lack of APPROPRIATE residential care in the Wairarapa. Neo-liberals always go on about jobs, we could be a centre for care of traumatised people, instead we drive these people out of the region because Wairarapa don’t like dealing with any RUBBISH they have.
THERE MUST NOT BE ANY MORE CONSULTATION WITH THE WIDER COMMUNITY
The government is using these consultations to pick out those suggestions they know will degrade and persecute suicidal people even more – not help them. I had an excellent counsellor in Masterton who told me the situation here is appalling for so many people – especially women. Why aren’t these health professionals being listened to? Why are they trying to keep people alive when they know their situation is completely hopeless and NOBODY could deal with what some people in our society deal with – especially those with histories of abuse.
When will the Whare Tapa Wha model be implemented, when will professional rehabilitation models be implemented and funded so they actually work? When will all the promises government talks about actually transfer into professional health care and welfare?
NO 1 FOR SUICIDE
Because I am currently up on seven police charges (having been acquitted of 7 last year and had charges dropped on six others), misuse of a telephone for begging for help I am entitled to and not getting, 3 for graffiti for using a chalk pen to protest about discrimination on Carterton police station window, High Court and Appeal Court in Wellington, plus 3 of wilful trespass for speaking truth to power and protesting in/outside buildings who directly responsible for my situation.
I know I have repeated some things here, sorry about that, I just need to get these things out of my head because I can’t believe this is what is happening to me and so many others. I just want the abuse, discrimination and blatant unprofessional incompetent treatment of suicidal people to stop.
