I’ve written before that I learn as much from fiction about madness and sanity as I do from my library of books on mental health. For the Pratchett fans among us, I’ve always loved the mottos Vetinari (the leader of a large city) lives by, such as :
Never build a dungeon you wouldn’t want to spend the night in yourself. Never build a dungeon you can’t get out of.
I feel this is highly applicable above for those of us working in mental health, that is :
Never create a resource it would be beneath your dignity to seek support through.
Would not the world then be a much happier place? I rather think so.
