One in Four

A new magazine for the mentally ill or should that be ‘service user’? It’s bright, it’s vibrant, it’s ‘upbeat’; but I can’t see what they bring to the party. I see nothing in there that I haven’t seen before. They still focus on the elite. Almost all of my mentally ill friends are ‘burnt out’.* I watch them deteriorate more and more each year. I do not see their experiences reflected in the pages of ‘One in Four’.  I do not see myself reflected in there either.  I wish I did.

*Many mentally ill people – acquaintances and friends – don’t even have access to a computer.  I guess I know a different class of mentally ill people
