Mental health is considerably underestimated and, the effect it can have, not just for that person, but for their families and, society as a whole.
In the United Kingdom mental illness accounts for a third of all afflictions and, at any given time, one person in six undergo anxiety or depression.
In England, mental health disorders cost roughly £105 billion a year, owing to deficit of income and related treatment and welfare costs.
The cost to a person with a mental health disease can furthermore be high because left untreated, such disorders can result in being unemployed, homelessness, the break up of families and, eventually taking one’s own life.
Owing to the ongoing humiliation that some people have about mental health disorder, many individuals are unwilling to talk about any mental health problems they have had.
While mental health disorders are not usually life threatening, left untreated, they can lead to pursuits and behaviours that are physically damaging and, in some instances, life-threatening.
Physical disregard for oneself
Alcohol and drug misuse self-harm
Despite the fact that suicide rates have dropped by 20% since 1998, suicide still remains one of the main reasons of death in younger people and adults who are under 45 years of age.

So, presently you can see why there have been so many people complaining against ATOS because they’re failing people with Mental Health Disorders because the work capability assessments are not equipped to cope with Mental Health issues and, consequently people with Mental Health difficulties are scoring no points at all and, by the time ATOS are interrogated, they have handed it over to some other company that’s dealing with it, so if people want to protest, they have to go somewhere else, to see someone else instead of ATOS who have now conveniently vanished back into the woodwork, like the critters that they are.
People do not expect to be regarded as animals by ATOS workers, in fact animals at the zoo in all likelihood get treated better than they would do by ATOS employees.
Yet in today’s culture one has to be a bootlicker to get on in this life, or else your place of employment will criticise you for doing the correct thing, this is why an ATOS workers disposition regarding another human being is one of entertainment because I’m sure that’s what they all require just to get through a functioning day.
I’m sure that not all employees that work for ATOS really agrees with what goes on in the company, especially those workers that have family members that are also disabled; you just couldn’t fulfil your job description without some type of jocular mirth, sadly that entertainment is at the cost of the person who is being assessed.
I believe that people ridicule other people because in their own twisted minds, it gives them some kind of power kick, but what they don’t realise is that their amusement is futile and mean and, no one is unfailing and, the scorn that those people display to others, will one day be manifested to them and, it’s shameful that one human being should be displaying another human being such hideous and contemptible behaviour which they classify as a power kick.
