As the next of kin, it is provocative to hear/read statements from politicians regarding suicide and mental health. I don't think most people have no clue how bad it is with psychiatry. In order to understand it I have to drag up the cliché – "you must experience it for yourself".
My family and I had painful experience of this when my little brother the night of new year's eve 2019 is no longer managed life. He had lost all hope that there are enough mental health care in this country.
Let's look at how health care works in Norway. It is the way that Health and care services has the overall responsibility for health policy, public health, health care and municipal services. The minister for health is Bent in Height.Could Mats have been saved? Dagbladet Plus
I note that Lofty does not have any education or experience from health care. He, however, has a formal background from hotelladministrasjon, as well as history and law. When one sees the policy he leads the field of psychiatry, I me of about this would have been different if the High had the clinical expertise and experience.
the Lack of this competence stand out as a problem in my eyes. That the top that sits on top and decide are politicians without sufficient expertise and experience in the field of health and pasientkontakt. What is the result? Yes, that doctor who treats you is no longer the skilled clinician, he or she really is.
Now, the physician has been a politician and bureaucrat. I think it is just that it bears the stamp of the policy, paragraphs, laws and regulations. The patient's needs is no longer in focus.
Where is the care? Where is the arm and øyekontakten they so desperately need?
What happens when the most important thing with the surgery is record keeping as a result of the fear of breaking the strict laws and rules? I fear, and has as mentioned been experiencing, that the result of this strict policy is that the suicidal people and the mentally ill become worse during treatment. And in several cases I am familiar with are those sent on the streets where they are a danger to themselves and others.
I am at the starting point of that you should decide over their own lives. But sometimes others make decisions for you. The other day I read an article where you Bent High, stated the following: "It is important to say that some of the measures that are put in, might have seemed. For all we know could the numbers have been even higher if we had not done anything."
This says it pretty much. I will therefore make the High note that approx. 250 people annually take their lives in the specialist health service, it will say ca. 43 per cent of all suicides.Turn On the LydErrorAllerede plus customer?

Of time to realize that help you believe exists does not help. To stand in the midst of grief where the next of kin hear the High, boasting of the job he is doing is nothing other than provocative.
the Government believes that it is impossible to resolve this without greater transparency. They believe that those who are struggling mentally is not open?
Mental disorders are the most common reason we visit the doctor. Many are open. Finally to put the blame and responsibility on the patient and their relatives.
the End to send those who suffer in the queue to the family doctor or a psychologist. End to focus on to bring down the use of coercion. You must not say that there is a lot of good help to get. Patients have to actually get help WHEN they ask for it, and before hope and motivation beaches in a queue. And the help must be of high quality. Often, they are degraded by the so-called help. There are reasons why almost half of the selvmordene in Norway are committed by those who are under treatment. When can impossible help you show to be so good?
I, and many other relatives experience it as a mockery when you are Bent on High says that there is a lot of help to get. This has no root in reality. Very many people who have experienced mental illness, either themselves or as caregivers, know that this is not true. There is very little (good) help to get.
show message from Maud Angelica his speech. What with the message to all the other 16-year-olds who have lost a mother, a father, a sister or a brother? When are you going to listen to their message? You can Bent High view to another case where a 16-year-old has stood out so Maud Angelica so courageously did, and that you listened to?
It was certainly a nice speech. But do not forget that we are talking about here perhaps the most protected and resourceful 16-year-old. I choose, therefore, to listen to and lift up the message from all the other 16-year-olds who have lost their loved ones. They might not agree with you in that there is a lot of help to get.I must tell you about the little brother Debate
health Professionals will not longer be allowed to be health care provider. The treatment bears the stamp of the policy. Believe me, I've experienced it up close. Many health professionals are incredibly talented and have a lot to contribute. But then they must be allowed to be health care provider instead of your right hand.
the suicide rate has not gone down in spite of several action plans, increased competence and "better" treatment. It's as simple as that the politicians do not work.
To put down sleeps is not a particularly good idea. It is also not good practice to design a tvangsbegrensningslov that allows sick people to end or refuse to accept the treatment, only because they are consent - or beslutningskompetente. Believe me, the law works. There is less use of coercion in psychiatry now. But at what price? I got the painful experience the this 31. December 2019.
But one thing you have completely right in Bent High – that it is a strength to ask for help. It is so incredibly difficult to ask for help when you really have lost all hope and just want to disappear. That you are struggling then seek help shows such an amazing strength that I admire.
You guys are so strong that keeps out the pain and at the same time want help. For the pain can not be described or compared with anything else. Then it is a shame that they are met by regelryttere and bureaucracy.
We know from experience that some of the most important is to involve the family. But here, there is even a law that is an obstacle, namely, the duty of confidentiality. It MUST be a lower threshold to break this if there is danger to life and health. The needed routines that open up to involve the family in a better way.
It is so simple that what we do today does not work. Nevertheless, we will continue in the same track. In 1995 came the first action plan against suicide. Norway had the most significant decrease in suicide from 1990-1995, BEFORE the action plan was implemented! Perhaps it is time that the politicians step aside and allow the health care provider who is politically independent get designing mental health care? Just a suggestion from me.
in Conclusion I want to emphasize that the criticism in this post is not only directed against the Bent Height. It is a criticism against it as in a number of years, has been a nedprioritering of psychiatry. But High has the overall responsibility pr. date.
And to put things in a historical perspective – In 1855, Norway was a poor country. Nevertheless, we built Gaustad hospital, which was the first state hospital for the treatment of mental disorders. We chose to give priority to psychiatry. This enables us among other things to thank Herman Wedel Major for Norway's psychiatric father. He was a doctor and lost his father to suicide in 1839.
Today we the world's richest countries. Nevertheless, the number of bunks to døgnbehandling in psychiatry almost been halved in the last 20 years. Understand what it can. Imagine if people like Herman Wedel Major had been the health minister today.Planned to die before the sixteenth birthday
