Families SA nothing but glorified students stealing babies

Families SA nothing but glorified students stealing babies

I'd like to tell my sister's story, without mentioning names. I feel both Families SA and the mental health services have let her down badly.

My sister had been an untreated schizophrenic for approximately 10 years despite countless episodes of psychosis and pleas from her family to the emergency mental health line/ hospital etc.

So you can imagine what happened when she got pregnant. She had a few psychotic episodes during the pregnancy, after which (I regret to say) I contacted the child abuse hotline to ask for help because I was concerned about her and her unborn child.

One Breakdown Can Mean Losing Your Kid Forever
State governments are permanently taking hundreds of children from their parents—under a bizarre theory that they might, in the future, be too mentally ill to care for the young.

By Seth Freed Wessler, ProPublica

In August 2009, Mindi, a 25-year-old struggling new parent, experienced what doctors later concluded was a psychotic episode. She had been staying in a cousin’s spare basement room in De Soto, Kansas, while trying get on her feet after an unexpected pregnancy and an abusive relationship.

Report: Majority of Children Remain at Home after Maltreatment Investigation

Report: Majority of Children Remain at Home after Maltreatment Investigation

Children who remain in the home after maltreatment investigation may require mental and developmental health interventions

Note: This means that much of the time it is unnecessary to remove children, obviously it is much more traumatic to leave a loving home and move from foster home to foster home. Governments should be concentrating on supporting the family unit instead of feeding the child stealing machine, making all involved filthy rich while the people in need continue to go without.

Detaining people under Mental Health Act due to bed shortage

AMHPs 'unnecessarily' detaining people under Mental Health Act due to bed shortage

Health Committee calls for urgent investigation after hearing that pressures on inpatient places means 'being detained is ticket to getting a bed' in some areas.

People are being “unnecessarily” detained under the Mental Health Act as professionals struggle to find alternative ways of securing increasingly scarce psychiatric bed places for patients in need of hospital care, MPs have warned.

Patients are “being sectioned unnecessarily” by AMHPs and clinicians as a means of securing treatment as a shortage of

Legally Kidnapped by Cairns Mental Health & Police - My Sermon for Church on Sunday

Note: After today's experience I am compelled to preach a sermon on Sunday night's service. I will prepare it here throughout the week, ready for Sunday night (28th July 2013).

Brotherhood of Man

Jesus broke with custom more often than not so I will follow his example and ask you to put away your bible. There will be many bible quotes in this sermon and isn't it more beneficial to take in what is being said than flicking through a bible to read what I am telling you anyway?

When I first met Margaret and explained to her my fight against a corrupt system, not only on behalf of my son, but for

Warriors Murder is Savage

I think it is time to stop the blame. 

Time the government with its economic reforms and its out of reach housing and electricity costs, was made to stop only supporting those in the workforce and lucky enough to have jobs and occupation.

Wayne Swan is one of our oldest politicians, he is the treasurer of Australia, he doles out the money to ministry and organisations and he decides where Australia spends its money. 

Money given as funding for NGO's to help DoCS to take children from parents who are labelled as unfit. 

Money to the states to fund aid in funding ministries.

The DSM 5 will drug America to death

Drugging America to death

The recent calls by knee-jerk politicians and other notables, to expand mental health screening for anything and everything, is anchored in the new DSM 5 about to be launched against the public. And this is an attack! The insane ramblings of selected psychiatrists are codified into one volume of the most insidiously inane and fictional collection of non-existent mental illnesses that will be used to target and label individuals.  The benefits of labeling as mentally ill, in reference to future lawful privileges, activities and rights is tied directly to this new and
