Yeap - agreed - brought the situations to the forefront. Particularly good to read about the bed situation in acute wards, makes people aware of how dire it all is really. I was going to blog about this today too! Great minds think alike!

Yes, I was aware of how dire the situation re acute beds is. I think so much of the problem is the "it will never happen to me" attitude - mental illness is something that happens to "other people" and not to "people I know" for many individuals. Therefore it is not a concern.
