When will our voices be heard equally? @ScotParl #humanrights #equality #respect

[words said in a longer Email this morning sent to a fellow Scottish human rights campaigner and others, regarding Article 12 of the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, in relation to the Mental Health (Scotland) Bill]

When are the human rights of ALL detained mental patients and their carers going to be protected and upheld? 

When are critical voices in Scotland's mental health world going to be given equal respect and standing as those who tell Scottish Government paid employees what they want to hear? 

When are Scottish Parliament elected members going to listen to the voices of people who have been abused and silenced by the psychiatric system because they had the misfortune to have experienced mental distress and to have expected humane treatment just like any other health board patient?

When?
