I believe wholeheartedly that if we bring a child into the world that we as parents know them better than any consultant/nurse.
If we say that their emotional behaviour is so severe that we feel that the need is there to have them sectioned then the least that can happen is to be listened to. The need being that they may be a risk to themselves or others.
This too should happen if you feel the need for someone who is close to you that they need sectioning,...... you should always be listened to.
If you are NOT listened to then the person who failed you must accept the responsibility for the outcome.
In our case my son took his own life within 24 hours of my begging the hospital and consultant to section him.
Since my son (aged 28) took his own life I have found that I am by no means the only one that has been treated in this way.
This cannot be allowed to keep happening.
