Cass Romero started this petition to NIH and

  Many people, including myself, have been treated poorly by the mental health system. I am creating this petition to bring awareness to, and hopefully stop this wrong doing by mental health institutions world wide. Inside the facilities that are said to help those with mental illness, is one of the worst experiences some have ever been through. They treat those who are scared, and confused, as if they were some kind of lesser being. From being forced injections without asking for parent approval, ( even for the most minor of incidents ) to being humiliated and/or seemingly teased by staff. Those injections that are used to calm a patient down, are said to have anti-phycotics.(whether you are experiencing phycosis or not) If you haven't heard, anti-phycotics have been through multiple studies, are shown to cause a multitude of problems, and harm the brain. Now, realise that these injections cause your body to numb, and you can't even move! They are injecting so much anti-phycotic medication that it does those things listed... that is insane, and should be illegal! Look up any NIH study on anti-phycotics, and you'll be in shock of the possible consequences of this kind of medication. When it comes to the staff, they can be fairly horrible. I've had a staff of one of these hospitals tell me that I was never getting out just because she "thought I didn't take a shower" when in fact I did. My friend was force injected just because he was having a mild panic attack. I couldn't even talk to another patient without being threated by staff of a longer stay because "I shouldn't be making friends there." All of this especially applies to those with schizophrenia due to the large stigma around the illness, and that is unacceptable to me. There needs to be a change within the mental health system because you wouldn't treat a person with diabetes, or cancer this way. You wouldn't take a scared, and confused person to a hospital just to make it all worse, No one in their right mind would. Now please, join me, and others on this journey to give people in need the help that they deserve!
