    Noone wants to have a mental illness,or watch a loved one suffer from one. It is hard enough to cope with meds and triggers without doing it seperated from family.Residents from Labrador have to do just that.
    Why doesn't our government stop spending money on insignificant things,and prioritize spending.The health and welfare,education,water consuption and roads for citizens far outwieghs museums,concerts and political gains.
    If you are trying to accomplish anything while in a mental health crisis,it can become too much.For those who still believe the stigma attached to mental illness,all I can say to you is PRAY.Pray that it's not you or one of your loved ones suffering tomorrow,because it does not discriminate

    No one knows the horror and lost hopeless feeling of the deep dark hole of depression, and other mental illnesses, unless they have actually gone through it. It's pure hell !
    Lives have/are lost because of no professional psychiatrist, or even a psychologist, available to them.

    It would be better to take your chance with a butcher than to place your trust in the psych system in Newfoundland. More than half of the doctors treating patients need a good mental and moral over haul themselves. The lady said PRAY I agree, pray that you can keep your wits about you and not end up a mindless victim or a voiceless victim against a system that covers its abuses by blaming the patient.

    It's about priorities - and attaining the recommended standard for health care services is low on the Williams government priority list. I wonder how stack up in # of ministerial communication officers per 1000 of population? I'd wager that we lead the country.
