Even the professionals don't understand the trauma a tortured mind suffers. Psychological injury becomes more intense with frustration in the mind of the mentally ill.

We, none of us, can ever comprehend the torment of the mind in those afflicted. Each have their own reasons, require their own treatment and need their own individual understanding.

The mind is complex and difficult to understand. Non sufferers should avoid judgmental condemnation until greater knowlege of the condition is gained.

There, but for the grace of God ...

The worst thing the governments of the previous couple of decades have done is to cut back on NHS mental health funding.
Also the 'Care in the community' programme has just left mentally ill people fending for themselves in the big world where they are prone to both physical and mental abuse from youths and adults that have no care or understanding.
