Hope this poor man gets the right help soon - mental health care is so poor in the UK and it's got even worse under this government

Farmfield Hospital for low and medium risk patient with Schizophrenia and Multiple Personality Disorder !!! I use to work there 10 years ago when they were coming from Broadmoor and to keep there cost £400 per night for each patient. There is no need to worry until they stop taking their meds and then comes the other side, a side you don't want to be around...... why else do you think the building has 15 meter fences around it with all side covered with CCTV and if you work or visit you are not allowed to phones inside. Oh year not to worry!
