tweeting about the reality of psychiatric abuse to Jamie Hepburn, Minister for Mental Health @ScotParl

This morning the Health and Sport Committee at Scottish Parliament will consider a petition by Andrew Muir, PE1550, on behalf of Psychiatric Rights Scotland, calling on the Scottish Parliament to urge the Scottish Government to set up a public inquiry into historical cases of abuse of people detained under the Mental Health (Scotland) Act 1984 and the Mental Health (Care and Treatment) (Scotland) Act 2003.

See Papers for 12 May 2015 meeting of the Health and Sport Committee.

Here are my tweets from earlier, addressed to Jamie Hepburn MSP, Minister for Mental Health, who gave a written response to this Petition which claimed that Mental Health Act safeguards were a protection in respect of the rights of psychiatric patients and that it was easy to make a complaint about psychiatric abuse.  No it isn't.  I can testify to that.  Bullying is a reality.  Notes by "professionals" which read like fiction.
