  1. Dear Sir Madam

    People should have a choice in what they receive from people .

    It does deter people from seeking care more when forced , causes more agression .

    • Forced treatment involves a lack of choice by definition. I am for choice and I am against coercive treatment practices. Mental health treatment should not used as punishment. Locked wards are locked precisely to prevent people held within them from exercising their freedom of choice. Undoubtedly the lack of choice involved is going to produce aggression in some, if not all, individuals who have had their freedoms taken away from them.

      Involuntary treatment does not take place without assault or the threat of assault. We may call this assault something else, like treatment, but what it is is assault. Assault is mistreatment or maltreatment, and it can be a very traumatic experience for people to endure.
