Stop the Mistreatment of Psychiatric Patients!

To the Alberta Health Regions Stop Mistreatment of Psychiatric Patients! We, the undersigned Organization for Bipolar Affective Disorders Society, Physicians, former Patients, and concerned Citizens, Do hereby implore the Alberta Health Regions to cease the policy of involuntary transferring of patients from hospitals where their Psychiatrists practice in the short-sighted interests of bed availability. This policy undermines the long-term benefits of doctor-patient relationships and only serves to traumatize persons in acute states of mental illness; making a bad situation even worse.


The Organization for Bipolar Affective Disorders is a registered non-profit society, providing support to individuals affected either directly or indirectly by Bipolar Disorder, Depression or Unipolar Disorder, along with other mental illnesses. We serve individuals throughout Alberta, Canada by providing peer support, resources, literature, educational forums and presentations. OBAD\'s mission is to help people with mood disorders live better lives.
