    It is so sad when mental issues are portrayed as negative.

    It would be in the best interest of the community to invest in the mental health issues.

    I worked in community care as a vocational rehab type job. I met my client at their group home/ house where up to three clients shared a home run by a for profit agency. I took clients out into the community to do volunteer work. Working with a man who was developmentally disabled as well as Paranoid schizophrenic in the factory setting I was always aware that he could at any moment have a psychotic break and do harm to the person working next to him. I never really knew him after working with him for five years I could never make contact with him. He had no rational thoughts about the world around him. I never turned my back on him. He did recognize me and know our routine but I never felt safe. Still that was an extreme case. No putting the mentally ill in the community did not work. They were all in staff care locked in their homes and avoided by everyone we came in contact with.

    No none of my clients were violent... they were detached from reality. When I took them out in the community on more than one occasion when crossing a street they turned away from me and stepped back into on coming traffic... it was a job...I'm lucky no one ever got hurt. I did wonder why all the institutions unlocked their doors..

    What was the rationale for moving from institutionalization to community care when such stigma still exist in response to mental health illnesses?

    Depression is real. We can't just put a bandaid on it and hope it goes away. We need ongoing support and treatment just like if you had another illness like diabetes or heart disease . You would treat them so why not treat depression . If you walked around with a bandage around your head people can see something is wrong. Maybe we should all do that .

    society thinks that people who suffer a mental illness are dangerous. People who don't suffer a mental illness don't really want to know about it or listen to someone who does because they don't understand it enough themselves so they feel like they are no help. Violence is usually caused by being under the influence of alcohol or drugs because some people with mental illness use drugs and alcohol as a coping method . The community should accept people with mental health issues just as a regular person not that mental illness people are any different

    there has as stated been a tendency by the media to promote the belief that random violent acts are frequently carried out by people suffering with mental health issues - particularly since the closure of many hospitals and care in the community being introduced as an alternative and yes there have been a few high profile cases of this promoted by the media. However, logic should tell us that illegal drugs and vast amounts of alcohol and sometimes both are more likely to result in violent behaviour. People should not be frightened of those with mental health illness because that is what it is an illness just as physical illness - would we say that a physically ill person is more likely to become violent - no we would not. it is only scary because we do not understand mental illness as we do physical illness and often we cannot see it. where possible people should remain with their families or friends just as they do with physical illness because they are ill - not criminals who should be locked away

    I think every structure should be inclusive and not exclusive. If the community cannot accept them, then no structure

    People with a mental illness will always need help and support. They shouldn't worry or have fear of being in public. I feel they always need support and a friend to help them out, as most can't do alot of daily day to day stuff like we can. They need our help, support and care.
