Back in 2014/2015, I was going through a very acrimonious divorce. I had a mental breakdown and decided that I was going to blow up the house with me in it. I had worked out what I was going to do; I was going to cut the gas pipe in the utility room
But I put out a cry for help to those who cared for me. I ended up being asked to go to my doctors and then they dismissed me and said I could go home, without them saying anything of any importance.
Two hours later, two police officers came to my house and then arrested me. They shoved me in a cell but refused to give me the drugs that THEY had asked to bring with me. They did it on purpose and I must have pressed the bell a dozen times in my cell to ask for my medication; they refused every time.
THAT is what the police think of mental health. They do not care at all.
