Come to Bedlam

I read my friend, Miranda's, most recent blog with great distress.  I only hope that this poor young woman can get into the Bethlem (Bedlam) Hospital as soon as possible.

In the meantime, this sort of treatment of mentally fragile, vulnerable patients should be highlighted, reviewed and stopped.  If I were in her parents' position, I would be asking the Quality Care Commission for an urgent review and fighting tooth and nail to get her to a place of safety.

I would like to thank Miranda for not only drawing this to my attention, but for her tireless work for all mentally ill patients and for her candour and honesty.

  1. Hi, I discovered your blog through the lovely Miranda and I too was pretty distressed at the treatment of her friend L. As someone who on several occasions has been recommended to 'consider inpatient' and who has always ran as fast as possible in the opposite direction (said what they wanted to hear), this story makes me glad I did. Thanks for your blog and for your work too,
    Take care
