Living life on the borderline

Election Night 2010 – Live from an average British living room.

Posted on: May 6, 2010

*drumroll please*

I’m nervous for some random reason. I don’t like getting involved with politics, so I suppose I’m virtually solely to blame if the country goes to pieces over the next 5 years. Oh wait, I can’t vote yet. Yaya.

I’m watching the Channel 4 Alternative Election Night, purely for comedy reasons. I will be flicking over to the other channels to find out what’s happening in the real world too.

I’ve been trawling the internet, looking for what the parties said in regards to what they’re doing concerning mental health. I’ve been hard pressed (oooh!) to find some, actually, but I did sign the Rethink petition so I’ve done something at least.

I’m quite curious – what would you like to see whoever-who-gets-into-power do for the mental health services/mental health care?

I’d like to see shorter waiting times to see someone from the mental health services and more psychiatric units. And improve the care on said units. The hospital I went to was miles and miles away and I’m not even that far out in the countryside. And it was crap. But let’s not get personal.

So yeah. If you’re lurking like a lurking thing and reading this, I’d love to know what you think and what you’d like to see.

Updates throughout the night! Perhaps.
