Madness Radio: Dignity of Elders Carole Hayes Collier


First Aired 11-1-2011

Why are nearly a third of all elders in nursing homes given anti-psychotic drugs, despite life threatening side effects? Are medications being used as chemical restraints? Can nursing homes be places of dignity -- or should they be abolished? Carole Hayes-Collier was diagnosed schizophrenic at 19 and left to a lifetime of hospitalization. When she recovered, the abuses she witnessed inspired her to join the Gray Panthers and dedicate her life to elder rights and mental health. http://graypanthers.org/ http://online.wsj.com/article/SB11967291... http://www.canhr.org/stop-drugging/

This is terrible and going on in the UK. My father was put on Rispiridon and Seroquel. It is disgusting what they are doing here in the UK.

I have a website called psychiatricabuseuk.com (Posterous Site) - I cannot talk about my Dad's case at the moment but will do after it has gone to court - I am talking about my daughter at the moment in shocking detail.
