    So mental health issues should be dealt with a 'kick up the hole'? Shur nobody knows the facts here, neither you or me, again, yes mental health issues can be drug and non-drug induced, if drug induced, why did this occur, why do drug users/addicts become so?

    It appears you are letting your eyes do all the reading without your mind processing what you are actually reading. Read it again (minus the outrage) and you will see the context of what i said regarding the kick up the hole comment.

    I'm just speaking against the mockery, I don't know the guy preaching only from what I've seen here. I am a Christian though, and I wouldn't be one if I didn't believe the Bible to be true. So it's for that reason I believe that people need to hear the gospel, Jesus' death, burial and resurrection for our sins. Especially so in this day and age that's getting more and more godless by the second. I see JW's there on the quay almost every morning with their stand out and pamphlets, and while I disagree with them I don't feel the need to mock them. I'm just glad to know that there are still people out there, like the preacher in the video, spreading the truth amongst all the confusion.

    What's your view on dinosaurs?

    point taken but you d be surprised at the lack of understanding and awareness of addiction problems and mental issues in society, theres been some great research over the years on it, always interesting to chat to professionals involved in the sector, its also disturbing to here the lack of services that are available to deal with it to

    I know full well about the lack of understanding regarding mental health. As i said in the post earlier a family member is going through some issues which has affected their mental health. The threat of them taking their own life is very much there and it has all my family on edge. The authorities seem very slow to help with the issue and i fear it will be the final downfall.

    Also i must addres your comment about autism aswell just in case you think i was being intentionally rude to you. My partners daughter has autism and i know how hard it can be. In fact imo that is less understood than mental health so it can be difficult to get the help needed. I would never disregard you or anyone else for having such issues to deal with.

    I guess we never know what goes on with people and i hope that chap is ok. Unfortunately though when it comes to social media people love getting outraged, people add legs to stories, spread lies etc. Some people dont bother reading the whole story and then there is an section of people who believe everything they hear especially when it comes to anyone in a certain profession ie our paramedic friend as mentioned by Cabaal. BTW this is not a dig at you or Cabaal i just get perplexed at our reaction to what others may say from time to time. Its like some are waiting to be offended.

    Facebook is toxic as is this place so id take what i see or read here or there with a pinch of salt.
