    One must scrutinise these two horrors, Human-Trafficking and Mental-Health, at length;

    meanwhile, consider clarifying some governing terminology:

    begin with “Mental Health” –
    1. “Under British Law there is no such legal-entity as “health”,
    nor of holistic-health, nor of ‘mental-health’ ”
    [AgeUK’s free legal advisers currently in Plymouth].

    2. Nor is there any practical and non-medical “Holistic Health building” organisation in Britain.

    3. Nor are our Psychiatrists in sound mind-functioning and ‘mental-health’:-
    your own legislation has laid down that £150 per week is a sufficient living for any individual entitled to live in Britain, to maintain theirself healthy, citizenlike and environmentally supportive.

    But the psychiatrist “needs” 10 times that amount before s/he will even “get out of bed”, quite distinctly from all the professional and business costs involved which are paid out of the overarching employer’s accounts including the so-called (legally-non-existent ?) National Health Service.

    That makes the whole class of psychiatrists at least nine times Deluded – that they are each at least ten human-beings.

    Where can we turn for honesty, sustainworthiness, and emulable leadership, even for holisticly-healthy and non-‘profiteering’ Guidance ?

    How on Earth ever become able to help others in such dire circumstances as victims of human trafficking ?
