Was your call to an “anonymous” and “confidential” help line traced? Did you get a surprise visit by police after your call? Did the police take you to the psychiatric hospital against your will? This is standard policy and practice with many major help lines, including the US National Suicide Prevention Lifeline. If you’ve ever gotten a surprise visit after calling a help line, I’d like to hear you story — please get in touch!
Have you come across this phenomenon. It is real.

Concerns re: Vancouver transit advertising poses mental health risks.
I had not seen that. There are so many layers in that phenomonen, that story, those opinions on all sides, and that article.
So true! If you haven’t experienced it, it’s not believable. Like a case of the flu, no one else can have it for you and descriptions aren’t the thing itself…Suspending disbelief..perhaps the most significant historical phenomenon since that guy got up from the dead..name escapes me at the moment..Elvis..?..No…Keep up the great work,…stay off ‘The List’ eh.
Its all about forced behavior control by the government and for the government’s benefit at these poor , vulnerable, disabled, elderly..doesn’t matter the label you give someone. It’s ALL WRONG!
Down in Florida the guardians can dish out medication without a liscence or anything.
Also theres a Navy vet down in Florida at a group/ nursing home where the guardian rook all his annuities and kept and sold his house worth 400,000.00 and flipped it 4 times within a year where the guardian and state made over 1.4 million from this vets hard earned money. THIS is happening all ovr and needs to stop.
The increasing use of guardianships to forcibly treat people, and the spreading corruption in the guardianship industry, are definitely a growing concern. At least the case of Britney Spears has drawn the attention of some legislators to the issue — perhaps there will be some change, hopefully.
