    I think that this is a fantastic video , I think Advocates are overwhelmed, there visits to Wards are brief, they have little real power and they have to witness the abuse of vulnerable patients that are looking for help. We need more advocates and Psychiatrists to actually stand up and tell the truth. Coercion, forced drugs , restraints and forced detention are happening daily in the so called caring NHS system, this government needs to honour its pledges and make the Physical and Mental Health NHS service equal. We all have human rights please do not abuse them
