My problem is, I told my MH worker at the time the police were plotting against me, and then I found out she was in on it all too. I can trust no one. Even went to the drs for a physical problem before and she ended up calling the police on me. Nowadays I don’t leave the house unless it’s with one of 2 trusted people and we just go to their house but that’s quite rare. I can go weeks without setting foot outside. feel like I’m on big brother 24/7 :(

Mine did the EXACT same thing to me.
There was a case a few years ago where a mentally ill man was killed in his own home after an anonymous person told the pigs he had a gun (which turned out to be false).

You've learned the hard way that these scum, who PRETEND to care DO NOT CARE! My MH worker did the same thing to me! These people are evil and not on our side. They consider us a problem and have no intention of helping us whatsoever. I am somewhat reclusive now because of them but I now believe this is what they want. They WANT us to wither away in our rooms and die...gosh I really hate them and I'm sorry they're doing this to you.

I had expressed to a cousin of mine that I was thinking of ending my life. Shortly after I had to leave my internship and I had biked there that day. It was a tough bike ride and i didnt get back to my dorm until almost maybe 40 mins later. When i'd got back i relaxed, until i heard a knock at my door. They called out "RA" but usually they knock and burst in. But they kept knocking so I got dressed and opened the door and there were 3 cops. I was confusee and hurt and mad. I couldnt think of who called the cops on me. I had been crying once I had reached my dorm but I didnt think that anyone would call the police because of that. They picked me up took me to the campus police station thing. Questioned me, said they were concerned for my safety and let me speak to a counselor. Theyd asked if I was a danger to myself and at the time, no I wasnt. But i had suicidal ideation. I was upset and hadnt ate so they allowed me to leave to eat and then come back. And i did.. But after everything was said and through they dropped me off back home and I had to meet with my counselor ASAP. I did but i still feel the same as I did then.

I definitely agree they see us as a problem!! That’s the problem though.. the people who we are meant to trust to help us can’t be trusted. I met 2 kind, caring nurses during my times with the crisis team that I felt I could actually trust.. but the problem is they can only see people for up to 6 weeks and then it’s off to the recovery team. But the recovery team are the ones who have plotted against me and messed with my already messed up head. So for me it’s see crisis team short term to then be left with no support again. No thanks. Less people I deal with.. the less risk of their plan ever working..

It's horrid I Know. The phrase "Walk a mile in my shoes" comes to mind. These people pass exams and earn degrees but they don't understand how life really is for people like us because they've never walked our walk. We're not insidious monsters who are out to rape and murder everybody, which is how these fucker treat us, we suffer with ourselves and are battling to stay alive and need the support. It shouldn't be like this!

Yeah i've threatened suicide by cop during a massive blackout after my brother flushed my pills that i was in the process of oding on, which at the time i was pretty deep into, i got suicidal as a result. It got me put on a 5150 mental hold, which wasn't fun and then i woke up 140 miles away in a mental health facility, which is kinda comical now that i think about it. I've also threatened suicide to my psychiatrist and she sent a cop to my house. All of the cops were nice, but still an inconvenience.

They were super paranoid that I had a weapon. The cop looked totally terrified. I did not have a weapon.

That happened to me when I got my 5150.The police took me to a hospital 100 miles away from home.I had no one to come pick me up,no money for any kind of fare,and even if I had the strength/balls to attempt to walk,I had no shoes.Just those ugly ass hospital booties.Eventually a couple nice county social workers gave me a ride,though I had to hang around the hospital an extra 1/2 day.

Yes, admittedly there have been a couple times where the experience was good and I probably should have been hospitalized as I wasn't thinking rationally (at that time).

I agree with OP here. Calling him predatory is a huge assumption.
Fortunately no one made that assumption. I said the purpose of the thread seemed predatory. Another member said it felt like voyeurism. I do believe the OP was banned the same night. If you seek more info, perhaps a mod will oblige.

I wish you well.

I mistook the context. However it doesn't seem like someone needs a shared experience or a reason to be curious about this. I watch people who have no idea how to handle cops and it's almost sad to see people let themselves be played by cops when they could just remain silent and nothing else can be done. There is alot people can learn on this subject in order to keep theirselves from being sectioned as you call it in the UK. It was a harmless question is all I'm saying. None of my concern really.

Some career criminal stole my friend's phone and discovered we'd discussed CTB, so she had SWAT raid my house.

I have no idea how she thought that would improve my mood, but I almost got fucking indicted.

I'm going to docs the piss out of her, and a pile of cops when I actually CTB in a couple weeks - if the mods approve.

Several and for the most part they’ve all handled it pretty well... given some situations on my part even... but they also get a heads up of what to expect from me so they can better approach, which they often do not get from people.

Yeah, long story but I wasn't actually actively suicidal at that exact time but a family member was lead to believe I was and called the police to my house. The officer couldn't figure out exactly where my address was and took a reeeally long time to get to me. I sat outside waiting for them while on the phone with my mom and joked that it was a good thing I really wasn't trying to off myself, because I'd have had time to do it several times over before anyone actually showed up, lol. The officer was friendly when he got there, asked if I was in danger or planning to hurt myself, and offered me a ride to the hospital if I wanted, which I turned down without any fuss from him.

From all the doctors and police who examined if i had to be in a hospital without my will and who came to my house to drive me to those doctors only 1 doctor and 1 policeman where problematic. Ill start with the doctor i talked to him in a chill ( not too distant matter though) explaining him i was fine , he takled then with my mother in the phone and he came in a very unprofessional manner and told you me " you have been lying to us you where taking heroin" like this is not allowed and they require to lock me up. It was unessecary and he made the decision to lock me up once again. I got crazy inside that hospital thinking people in such positions exist immature and stupid. Then from the 2 police people one of them came in a chill manner inside my room without a warrant and starting looking at things in my house he took a bag i had in the table thinking its cocaine...i sayed no i put that in my ear not to hear noises hahaha basically he touched my ear wax. Then i got bothered and told him what was he doing in my house is there a warrant they sayed no i sayed you can leave. But one of them was a cool sympathetic guy he asked that other dude even if he was quite older to get out and he spoke to me that everything is okey we dont have the warrant they forgot it or something so i trusted and went with them. Bad for me i was locked once again.....Generally speaking police doctors are good people. Im against the judges and the politicians who have rights upon weak people who want to suicide indefinetly. The first dont like themselves the idea of driving you by force to the hospital or treating you without your desire but the other ones got the problem of running a whole country and depressed suicidal people come way down their list...

From the uk and during my last attempt i panicked and called for an ambulance, the police ended up coming too and they stayed with me in the hospital until my mum arrived (i didnt want her to be there and when they saw i was getting very upset by her presence they said i was allowed to stay on my own) they were really nice and even talked with me about different suicide methods they had seen before.
