Petitions and activism

Require the NHS to provide single-sex psychiatric wards including intake wards

Hello, there's a new Parliamentary petition up.

People in psychiatric wards are likely to be quite vulnerable, and this is especially true for women, who may already have a history of abuse and trauma. If placed in a mixed-sex ward, there is a risk of sexual assault or general lack of feeling safe which can aggravate their conditions.

Thanks everyone! It would be great if we managed to get this debated in Parliament. We have until February though, so will keep spreading the word until then. Smile

It's a petition that's needed. I wish they had put a statistic in it as it's phrased very softly. Signed.

Signed. I've worked in mental health and know what happens in mixed sex wards from people who've been in them.
It makes me sick that they mix females and males when they need protecting.

I’ve signed. My beautiful gentle sister was raped on a mixed sex ward in a mental health long stay ward.
