This was a BBC piece about the use of police and cells in psychiatric care back in 2015.
I was interviewed about my own experiences of being taken to A&E by police when three police cars and a van came to my home following a I made to a helpline about wanting to take my own life.
I was marched through A & E with police on each arm with every staring like I had done something wrong, not desperately depressed and suicidal.
After being scared and embarrassed I tried to run and got restrained by a police officer who told me that I needed to calm down or I would be taken to a cell.
I was pleased to be involved in this as while, of course, police involvement is sometimes necessary it as a whole needs to be re looked at.
People with mental illness should not be made to feel like criminals.
