Interesting bail conditions. Don't go the mental health department unless you have to. Don't go to A and E unless you to have to. Same conditions as the rest of us.

Mis-representing the facts again! I know this person and he has mental health issues not being addressed. Why don’t you try to get a more balanced view. I would guess that during lockdown his condition has worsened, due to the lack of support.

Bob Smith you think that's a reason to assault members of staff simply doing their ? Ridiculous comment let's use mental health as an excuse to assault people! Good one 👍

John smith - if you knew the conditions he had you wouldn’t be so quick to judge...

Klei Aghmar please tell me what conditions there are that make it excusable to attack NHS staff doing their job? He frequently attends their for no medical reason and brings aggression and volience. I myself have had the displeasure of dealing with this individual on several different occasions each time he is a threat to our safety. Despite whatever conditions he may have it doesn't make it right that he can use that as an excuse to attack people !!! Simple

This is not the first time this man has physically attacked someone. He is known to mental health services and they have tried to help him on countless occasions and he refuses to engage. He can be polite but he can also be very intimidating and aggressive and has now also been seen defecating in public places in daylight. I have complete empathy for anyone struggling with their mental health as I also have my own issues, but the patient is not going to improve without working with the services and being compliant with medication

Bob Smith, this Man's mental health conditions are most definitely being addressed but he won't help himself and comply with treatment. He lived in a beautiful flat in Milwards and he left it completely wrecked, doors were ripped from hinges cupboards pulled off walls and the flat below was completely flooded by him causing the occupant to have to move out for 2 months while the damage was repaired. Many people have multiple mental health problems, myself included but we take vast amounts of meds which I personally hate, but without them and accepting help from the professionals maybe we would all be behaving the same way and blaming it on our conditions

Bit late to this one, but you cannot blame the patient, the blame lays at the step of the Tory Government and Tory cutbacks. If this man had a mentor that visited everyday, had an outpatients scheme for mental health patients, either gardening or just going for walks then his isolation would not get so bad and his Paranoia would not take over, if he repeatedly presents at AnE or mental health he is asking for help. No you should not ever be assaulted at work but blame the funding cuts and the Community support cuts not the vulnerable
