Letter sent to Director of See Me Scotland and others with a stake in Scotland's mental health world:
Strapline: Stigma, Discrimination? Two psychiatric nurses reported me to the police on 23 Mar15 on hearsay. Two police officers came to my home 25 Mar15 to investigate.
"Dear Judith and colleagues
I had been in the grounds of Stratheden on Sunday after Church, taking photos of buildings and improvements or otherwise, as I have done for the last three years, since my son was subject to dehumanising and "unreasonable" treatment in the Stratheden IPCU.
Here is my storify of tweets from Sunday where I mention being taken aback by a nurse accosting me:
I have raised a complaint (yet again) with NHS Fife, this time about the nurse who accosted me on Sunday. She used to be the Named Nurse for my son when he was an inpatient of the Stratheden IPCU in February 2012.
I hope that when See Me Scotland, SAMH and your cohorts are challenging stigma and discrimination that you will try and get to the roots of the matter, where it all begins. In psychiatry and mental health settings where people are labelled and seen as "less than". Where people are deemed to be "without capacity" and any resistance is met with force.
