Talking About Being Prepared In Case Of Crisis (Or – We All Have Our Part To Play In Getting A Booklet Correct)
There are times when words just fail me.
I am looking at a booklet which I was handed on Friday by a friend of mine called Julian Harrison (yes – he has been mentioned in a previous blog post).
He would like your help with a consultation process relating to the information provided to people with Mental Health Issues regarding Advance Planning. This is so people know what to do when your condition worsens to such an extent that you do not have the capacity to make decisions for yourself.
Now – I am not exactly the most highly intelligent person on the planet but I am having trouble trying to break the information into manageable chunks in order to wrap my brain cells around it.
It is written in a language which is theoretically aimed at patients and their carers. However, it appears to have been written by someone who has never experienced the situation for themselves.
What Julian would like to do is find out how the information can be more accessible to patients, carers, and the “Generally interested”.
If you have any experience of Mental Health Issues – and you would like to help Julian – please email him at firstname.lastname@example.org or call him on 07767297566.
