I was thinking last night that in fact I don’t agree with Mike King saying the promises in the Suicide Prevention Strategy aren’t quantifiable. All that needs to happen is a good Occupational Therapist – like my old one Glenda, to make up a plan. I’ll have a go in next few days.
That’s really what an occupation therapist does, looks first at the outcomes the person and government want, then work backwards from their to ensure it happens using professional rehabilitation models. I studied them at university, I know they exist.
I also know by not using a professional rehabilitation model they are experimenting on people – and that is illegal under Human Rights Act and International law. I’ve written to ACC telling them this and saying I do not agree with being experimented on and to provide me professional rehabilitation immediately. Was ignored of course.
