    Interesting from Twitter.
    It seems a mental health conference did not go down well

    Some aspects may sound familiar.

    I have not dug very deeply, but it seems UK mental health initiatives are not universally appreciated

    We aren't the only ones who've noted how the UK government treats people it chooses to classify as mentally ill.

    Dude.

    *cough*CFSAC*cough*

    Overall, this is a stinging indictment.

    It's not hyperbole to say that the UK stance on a number of health issues is Arrogant to the point of Hubris.

    I'm so glad there is push-back on this issue. The article has been tweeted by a great many people many of whom comment further and who tag a great many more.
