I am so glad that someone actually took the time to post this because for a minute..I felt we (my family) were the only ones going through these problems. I can honestly say that I have absolutely no respect for the mental health system and the mental health physicians. Everytime my brother is hospitalized they experiment with him. its never the same drugs. They use him like a lab rat. When the side effects start kicking in, instead of giving him cogentin or benadryl..they say he's "restless and uncooperative" and hold him down against his will to give him haldol..which just makes his side effects worse. They completely shut the family out of the whole process. the Doctors won't have anything to do with us..which is so wrong because were the ones that have to deal with him when he gets out. They lie in these "hearings" and make up stories. they even treat the family like their crazy so I can only imagine what goes on behind those locked doors. When you try to report the injustice...it falls on deaf ears. everyone bows down to these Doctors as if they were God and they themselves think they are God as well. Something needs to be done. The patients and the family have rights and they are being violated. I am very angry at the whole world and at God for allowing such injustice to continue..
