An Interview on Radio 2

This afternoon, I did an interview on BBC Radio 2 about my experiences of being sectioned. The interview stemmed from a news story about how mental health patients sometimes have to travel hundreds of miles to receive care. That story can be read in full here. In January of this year, I had to travel 60 miles as that was where the nearest bed was. However, for this interview, they wanted my experiences of being sectioned, something that has happened to me three times.

In this interview, I come in at 3:56. NOTE: To jump straight to my bit, you may need to leave the audio file to load a little while depending on your internet speed.

  1. good interview, telling things as they are. My son really didn't need sectioning in my opinion but they sectioned him just the same and he found it all very demeaning. He didn't get any psychological help at all while sectioned and yet it was what he would have needed most.
