I think that if people treat us/others disrespectfully or dehumanisingly then it's they who are diminished not us/others.— Chrys Muirhead (@ChrysMuirhead) August 2, 2019
A recent tweet on the topics of disrespect and dehumanising treatment when thinking of what I've come through since 2002 when voluntarily entering Lomond Ward, Stratheden Hospital, as a mental patient, and more recently caring for my son who did the same and ended up in a locked seclusion room with no light, toilet or water.
At times it was a very hard slog, glad that we have survived the experiences.

thinking back, I managed to make a full recovery from "mental illness" get back to FT work by 2006, dived into Scotland's mental health world in 2008 only to hit shallow water, within a few months being ticked off, excluded, bullied, blamed & by 2012 was fighting for human rights https://t.co/TywXkx1sHb— Chrys Muirhead (@ChrysMuirhead) August 5, 2019
