Sexual Assault in Mental Health Facilities

This story went to air on ABC News in Australia. It is disturbing, distressing and alarming. I have managed to avoid hospital admissions due to my mental illness, even though my GP has wanted to admit me in the past, I lied to her and promised I would have a family member come to stay and look after me. The truth is, I have no such family member and I just went home and... well I don't know what I did, but I survived to tell the tale.

Anyway, the point I am getting to, is that after reading and viewing this, there is no way I will ever go into a mental health facility if I can help it. No way.
