Informed choice: knowing potential of harm versus the potential for help in order to make a reasoned choice


Could people just take a little time to be informed about the choices they can make with regards to their mental health? It’s not always obvious though especially when we are so sick and our carers are maybe hopleless, helpless or several kms away like my dearest mum was. With sucking systems too like the one my brother was in, you may never really have a choice once you are a ‘pauper’. And your ‘family’ are relegated to the background for they are ‘professionals’ and what can your ‘family’ tell them.
