There is nothing like being arrested for ****ing in public, shopliftling or loitering suspiciously, to get your loved one down to the Cop Shop and that phone call from the Police, to ask you to pick them up.
There is nothing like it because it initiates the fastest reaction time by Social Services and a sudden deep concern by Mental Health Services for your partners' well being.
Where before there was no interest, suddenly they are falling over themselves to offer more care funding, immediate and unrestricted respite care and home visits from the Team!
Good old Mr Plod! He can do something I have been trying for ages to do and that's kick ass!
