SERVE YOUR COUNTRY and get treated like this: At least 13,000 hero soldiers left HOMELESS


The Government takes what it wants, then disregards the rest, be it people’s lives, natural resources, in fact in any aspect it can.

This is nothing new as we did the same with the colonies centuries ago and still do, in one way and another.

This is disgraceful in regards to resources, but even more so when lives are at stake.

Will it ever end, I fear not.

Childhood bullying can cause lifelong psychological damage – here’s how to spot the signs and move on : The Conversation


Childhood bullying is so common that it may not seem like a big deal. Up to 35% of people are estimated to have experienced it at some point. By adulthood, we are generally expected to have “got over” it. But the mental health effects of being bullied can be serious and last a lifetime. One study has even suggested that, when it comes to mental health, bullying is as harmful as child abuse, if not worse.

Approximately 20% of people who have been bullied experience some kind of mental health problems later in life, even at the age of 50. While some of these, such as post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), are easy to spot, others may be more difficult to recognise. These can range from inexplicable bouts of anger to a lifetime of feeling inferior to other people.

Although there has been an immense amount of research on bullying, most of it has focused on immediate effects, intervention and prevention. So we need more research on long-term effects and new forms of bullying, such as online abuse.

Hero was honoured by the Queen but betrayed by army after asking for help with his PTSD : Mirror.


They say the army looks after its own, but apparently only when it suits them.

The dashing Army officer embodied the bravery of Britain’s Armed Forces on the front line.

Gallant Major Wayne Owers was honoured three times by the Queen, saved countless lives and defused nearly 100 bombs in Afghanistan.

Yet his 27-year decorated career ended with him being dumped – after he asked for help in battling Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.

The bomb disposal expert confided in military doctors after suffering terrifying nightmares and anxiety attacks from the horrors he witnessed.

But after two years of treatment he was told that he was unfit to serve any more, despite medical experts saying his condition was improving.

Rather than offering him a non-operational posting, as had happened…

‘Traumatised’ autistic man restrained for 11 hours | DisabledGo News and Blog


The mother of a man with autism who was restrained by as many as nine members of staff for 11 hours at a private hospital in Birmingham has said her son has been left “traumatised”. Jill Nasralla told the BBC’s Victoria Derbyshire she had not received an apology after the incident involving her son Adam, then 20, at Wast Hills. He has now been given an out-of-court settlement by the hospital and police. The hospital said patient welfare was its “number one priority”. ‘Absolutely terrified’ Ms Nasralla said her son’s behaviour had “deteriorated” since he was moved to the hospital at the age of 19, and that the hospital had removed her son’s autism diagnosis without her knowledge. In March 2014, after being restrained at the hospital Mr Nasralla was handcuffed, placed in a spit hood and detained in a police cell where restraints continued to be used, with no solicitor or appropriate adult allowed to visit him. His mother explained: “One weekend he went into absolute crisis. I got a call

Catholic Care and Home Office v Kevin Raymond Young 14 Nov 2006 Supreme Court (St Camillus and Medomsley)


Another case of historical sexual abuse that when originally reported never got past first base. This rejection coupled with the original abuses will have created untold major problems for the abused and for then to deliberate on the Statue of Limitations beggars belief, just what is our justice systems wishing to achieve. For it should be that those who commit criminal acts should be brought to book and not orchestrate means to minimise this. There may be good cause for Statute of Limitations on some aspects, but others should be exempt especially those of a sexual nature.

The victim needs to be a major consideration as they had little or no choice in the actions committed, unlike their abusers.

cathy fox blog on child abuse

Kevin Young suffered horrendous sexual abuse as a child must have suffered again having to go through these court ordeals.

Kevin, went to Consett Police Station, when he came out of Medomsley, told them of his sexual abuse, and even showed them the ligature marks on his neck. He was told that to make allegations against a Prison Officer was a criminal offence when on licence.

Who was that callous police officer?

Kevin got on with life as best as he could and became a succesful businessman owning 22 cafes, and a large security business. But after literally bumping into his abuser in York who had become a Reverend in the United Reform Church, he went to pieces. He went from having a £2m business to a recluse, such is the effect of PTSD and mental illness following abuse.

Husband was tried in 2003 for a small fraction of his…

Despite of what some argue, there is clear-cut evidence that mental illnesses are diseases, no different from any other medical condition.  unfortunately the misconceptions and stigmas placed on those suffering with mental health problems, often prevent them from seeking treatment.  People are not only suffering from the syScreen Shot 2016-07-23 at 4.58.39 AMmptoms of a disorder or disease, but from societies lack of willingness to accept that mental illness is a disease as well, leaving may individuals to suffer in silence.  The stigma society places on this subject in turn, is preventing those suffering from reachin
