Learning disability 'trapped' in hospitals as NHS target missed - BBC News
Figures for March show that there are at least 2,260 people with learning disabilities or autism staying in hospitals in England - most for around two years, with half being kept in secure wards. [...] But charity Mencap said "hundreds of people with a learning disability who should have been living in the community are still trapped in in-patient settings".

The charity said families were often powerless to get them out and people could be locked up for years on end, instead of being supported in their communities.

Racism will not be solved by there being more mixed-race children | Nikesh Shukla | Life and style | The Guardian
“Beige Britain” won’t be the utopia we want. It’ll be the same country it always was, but with a significant demographic change. The whole “mixed-race kids ending racism” feeling is a nice thought that doesn’t change anything. It doesn’t look at divisions in the country right now. It doesn’t interrogate problems we have. It doesn’t end inequality. //&! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dI2TqlOA0vo - Alon Ziv, author of the book Breeding Between the Lines - Why Interracial People Are Healthier & More Attractive

Suizid als politischer Akt - "Ich gehöre mir und nicht dem Staat"
In der Philosophie habe beispielsweise Michel Foucault den Freitod als aktive Technik der Selbstgestaltung mit machtkritischem Impetus verstanden. Inspirieren lassen habe er sich dabei von der Antike. Schon damals habe etwa Seneca den Suizid als Akt der Selbstaneignung aufgefasst. Der zugrundeliegende Gedanke sei gewesen: "Ich gehöre mir und nicht dem Staat, nicht dem Kaiser, nicht den Verwandten und Ahnen und dass ich mir gehöre, heißt auch, dass ich mich dafür entscheiden kann, aus dem Leben zu scheiden", so Macho.

New Study Finds That Transgender Identity Is Not A Mental Disorder
The research, led by the National Institute of Psychiatry, interviewed 250 transgender people and found that it is not a mental disorder as once believed. Apparently, distress and impairment are the two essential characteristics of a mental disorder, and they found transgender people can experience some distress but not because they are transgender, but because of social rejection and violence.

UK South Asian women 'hiding cancer because of stigma' - BBC News
But in 2014, research from Bridgewater NHS found Asian women between 15 and 64 years old had a significantly reduced survival rate for breast cancer of three years.
Ms Saini said her research suggests the influence of men in the family and elders in the wider community may be contributing to the issue.
"If they didn't think women should go for screening, then they didn't go," she said. The stigma surrounding cancer in South Asian communities spans different forms of the disease.
Ms Patel said there was a reluctance for women to go for a smear test because they did not want to be "defiled" or be considered "no longer pure". National screening statistics show people from ethnic minority communities do not go for screening as much as their white counterparts.

Autism diagnoses 'could be reduced under NHS plan' - BBC News
Proposals to reduce the number of children being diagnosed with autism are being considered by NHS commissioners in south-west London.
The idea of restricting an autism diagnosis to only the most severe cases was discussed earlier this month.
The local alliance of five clinical commissioning groups (CCGs) says nothing has been decided yet.
But the National Autistic Society says it is "deeply concerned" about the plans.

Sarah Champion: Brexit is a crucial moment in our nation’s history – so let’s use it to be ambitious on equalities | LabourList
Given that equality is so central to EU law, and given the emphasis that has been placed by the prime minister on equality since her speech outside No 10 when she first entered Downing Street, it came as a surprise to me that the word “equality” does not appear once in the government’s white paper.

There is a brief mention of women’s rights in relation to maternity leave, but no mention of race, disability or sexuality and gender identity.

This cannot be credibly perceived as a deal that works for everyone in Britain if women, BAME, disabled people and LGBT communities aren’t even referenced in the white paper.

No one would listen to Stephen Fry if he was poor
Now he expects us to join him in condemning people who have been affected by events they could not possibly control.

And there are many of them. A recent study found that up to 80% of abused people had at least one psychiatric disorder by their 21st birthday: depression, anxiety, thoughts of suicide. Schoolyard bullying can be just as destructive, with one study arguing that bullying carried out by other children is five times more likely than neglect or abuse at home to cause anxiety.

Just as the body’s immune system is still forming in childhood, so too is the brain’s stress response. The effects of childhood trauma cannot be overstated: abuse, sexual abuse in particular, is devastating. Children need love, and they need to feel safe.

[...] The additional funding was part of a £1.25bn investment over five years announced by the chancellor in the Budget in March 2015. [ others said, with knowledge, that the 1.25bn is no investment rather than plugging holes, gaps, cracks and crevasses in services ] [...] "It doesn't seem to have turned into posts on the front line.

NHS mental health funding falls in England - FoI figures - BBC News
[ minority of patients. Can't do that with cancer treatment!

This compares to a rise of 2.6% in hospital trusts' operating budgets, according to analysis by the Health Foundation think-tank. The Department of Health said mental health care funding overall was rising. In the year to April 2016 the budget for mental health trusts was projected to rise just 0.3%. Of the 53 out of 59 mental health trusts in England which responded to the FOI request, 29 said their budget would be lower this year than last.

Protesters have marched in London against the closure of an NHS women’s health unit at St George’s hospital that provided one of the only specialist female genital mutilation (FGM) clinics in the country. The closure of the urogynaecology unit at St George’s University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust in Tooting, south-west London, which has a budget deficit of £60m, has united patients, staff and trade unionists in a bid to keep it open. The unit also provided a paediatric and adolescent gynaecology [PAG] and forensic rapid access service, one of the very few clinics in England that offered sensitive and age-appropriate care for girls affected by FGM.

Its medical director, Dr Donald McGeachy, told Inside Out he could understand patients' "displeasure" at the cuts. But he said with a £9m deficit to plug, tough decisions had to be made. "We try very hard to provide everything that we need, but there are some things that we are not going to be able to do," Dr McGeachy added. [...] !!!

10 truths about Britain's health service | Society | The Guardian
The NHS is facing a remarkable surge in numbers of people with mental illness – at the same time as multimillion-pound government cuts in services. In 2014 there were 57.1m prescriptions issued for antidepressants in England – an increase of more than 100% over 10 years. One in five young people experience anxiety or depression. But the government has been accused of cutting £80m from mental health services over the past five years.

Why should Rachel Watt have to sleep in her wheelchair? | Frances Ryan | Opinion | The Guardian
This is the hidden face of Britain’s social care crisis: disabled people left without help in their own homes. Read most coverage of the cuts to social care and it is easy to believe the crisis solely affects older people. According to research by Scope, 83% of disabled people in this country are now living without sufficient hours in their care package. That means being unable to get out of the house or waiting 14 hours to go to the toilet. This is what happens when austerity strips £4.6bn from social care spending in five years. As the government squeezes local authorities, social care has been left with a “funding gap” – a gaping wound, shall we say – that is growing by £700m a year. The King’s Fund thinktank has told the Guardian that the financial prospects for Britain’s social care system in 2016 “could not be worse”. [...] The biggest trick the government can play is the myth that any of this is inevitable. [...] It is the political choice[.]

2,000 people a month sent far from home for NHS mental health care | Society | The Guardian
Former health minister Norman Lamb attacks ‘discrimination at heart of NHS’ that in bed shortage prioritises patients with physical over mental health problems [...] Although ministers have committed to introducing “parity of esteem” between mental and physical healthcare, “the reality is that in many parts of the country the situation is getting worse,” she said. Cuts to bed numbers were “making it harder for people to get the help they need, when and where they need it. This is not acceptable.” The true situation is worse than the data shows because several private-sector mental health care providers and the Norfolk and Suffolk NHS Foundation Trust – which sends one of the highest numbers of patients out of its area – did not submit figures. Lamb urged the government to end the “scandalous” practice within a year.

the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, Zeid Ra'ad Al Hussein, pointed out that freedom of expression is not absolute and words can lead to violence: "History has shown us time and again the dangers of demonising foreigners and minorities." [...] People can and do change. Bigots don't. That is what makes them bigots. Germaine Greer has been shitting on trans people for over 40 years. Germaine Greer is a bigot. [...] The way people think about trans people and the way people treat trans people are clearly completely unrelated. // via redd.it/3tlbcg //&! apperently Richard Dawkins blocked her on Twitter after that article; bit.ly/1XnkhKE

Celebrating the hidden history of disabled people’s fight for civil rights | Frances Ryan | Society | The Guardian
Burgess says the exhibition aims to tell the story of a campaign movement that’s been largely ignored up to now. “If it is covered, it’s often not about people demanding change, it’s about ‘welfare’ or rights being ‘given out’,” he says. The exhibition also celebrates the Disability Discrimination Act, which this week marks its 20th anniversary, and the activists who made the law a reality. With the passing of the landmark DDA, for the first time in Britain the law provided disabled citizens with access to the workplace (employers were required to make “reasonable adjustments” to work and premises) and, through later amendments, to education and transport.

The Trans Movement Needs a New, Science Based Strategy | Brynn Tannehill
Tuesday's defeat of HERO highlights several conclusions that the LGBT movement needs to take to heart for the next decade or so. Foremost is that we will not win transgender issues directly at the ballot box, or in the gerrymandered republican legislatures which dominate the political landscape. [...] When opponents frame legal protections for transgender people as a choice between a group strangers (who are suspected of being perverts anyway) and the safety your wives and daughters, transgender people will lose every time. So far, anti-LGBT forces have been far more successful at pushing their narrative. I don't foresee this changing anytime soon. [...] Convincing large numbers of people driven by fear and religious beliefs simply will not happen. &! bit.ly/1MgrDKK &! https://redd.it/3rxwmd &! slate.me/1Op7eck

Law students had to help a man in debilitating pain fight being declared "fit to work"
“In any other area of law, if you were getting 19 out of 20 of your decisions overturned, you would want to go back and look at your whole decision-making process again. I think the DWP needs to seriously look at this.” [...] It was a telling revelation, not least because it highlighted the fact that vulnerable people and sufferers of mental health problems are being exposed to the system. King says that, of the cases ABLC took on, more than a third of claimants had already been diagnosed with some form of mental illness before their initial assessment. [...] It’s a precarious time for people with disabilities and mental illness, especially with funding for mental health being cut in real terms by more than 8 per cent, the lack of legal aid support for people wrongly declared "fit to work", [...] adds up to a total of 19 different cuts for the most severely disabled people.

Conservatives offer day of special access to ministers for £2,500 | Politics | The Guardian
[ you can have your voice heard, if you have the cash ] Corporate executives and lobbyists are being offered the chance to pay £2,500 for a day of special access to Conservative ministers at the party’s annual conference, including George Osborne and David Cameron. More than 30 ministers are being made available to paying guests at the Conservative party’s “business day” next month, which promises the opportunity for discussion with senior politicians. They include those responsible for business, tax and procurement. Cameron is due to give a Q&A session over the “business day lunch” to the grouping, while Osborne will host the dinner. The leaflet setting out the agenda says: “Business day offers representatives from the business community the opportunity to engage in discussion with senior Conservative politicians.” [...] Labour and Liberal Democrats all hold similar events – although at less than half the cost – and without the ability to offer government ministers ...

▶ BBC Radio 4 - File on 4, Minding the Gap: Mental Healthcare
Mental health services are facing a period of unprecedented change. The Department of Health has committed itself to reducing the disparity between spending on physical and mental illness, and a new payment system means services will be funded differently in the future. In the meantime there are concerns that vulnerable patients are dying because of pressures to release them from hospital too quickly, and a failure to provide adequate support in the community. Can a new focus on what has traditionally been dubbed a 'Cinderella service' reverse the impact of years of cuts?

Jobseeking Surrounded By Fictions, Myths And Convenient Narratives | Welfare Weekly
It is worth remembering that the origin of the social welfare payments by the state was to stop these kinds of moral judgements being made about a deserving and an undeserving poor. The state officially supports the stereotype of sympathy for the ‘deserving poor’ and scorn for the near criminality on the part of ‘scroungers’. [...] unemployed people are forced to drink this [Tories] cool-aid or face destitution. [...] Underlying all this is the deeper fiction that individuals are responsible for their own state of unemployment. [...] There is a broader change in the world of work, - neo-liberalism - whereby the rules developed at the height of the industrial revolution are now fully circumvented by employers [...] transfer the risk and responsibility around labour from the organisation (and state - ie keeping national workforce competitive through various means of education) to the individual. [...] leading 2 lowest common denominator regulation. [short-term, price fight, dereg]

Is Channel 4's Benefits Street 'poverty porn'? - Newsnight - YouTube
misrepresentation of minority and under-represented who usually have no voice, are not heard. but exploited, in opportunistic way. // "The villain is the system that makes/forces them to live such a life." // subsidizing poverty wages. // // welfare state disproportionate debates and displayed to CEO pay and tax evasion and avoidance (size/cost of 1 year of tax evasion/avoidance = 1 parliamentary term of welfare state budget) and working poor and precarious working conditions. // Its the easiest thing to do vs the hardest thing to do - for Career Politicians. and charging hard against corporate and private tax evasion and avoidance, does NOT fill your parties funds and galas in london, and it does not make emotional headlines for tabloids to exploit.
