    Oh, imagine how it would FEEL if you found yourself in a mental health crisis and the state got involved.

    Honestly, I feel like if I had a psychotic break or was suicidal and someone who is meant to care for me called the cops on me, I would never be able to trust that person again.

    It’s so heartening to see this idea having air pumped into it. Imagine the healing that could take place knowing you were treated by a group of people who don’t have state guns in holsters on their hips.

    Imagine how your sense of community would grow knowing that you are a part of people who had responded to you with care, not power. Imagine what that would do for alienated, disempowered, hyperindividualised people at their lowest!
