Mental health advocates were left feeling a lot of anxiety after a mental health advocate in North Carolina was told to “kill yourself” because she spoke out against Trump’s mental health plan.
“Kill yourself,” she was told.
“You’re going to die.
You’re going do nothing.
Go kill yourself.
It’s your death.
It doesn’t matter if you die on the way to work or you get on your motorcycle or you die from the flu.
You will die.
And you will not be happy.”
She was told by someone who was a mental patient to kill herself.
“It is so hurtful to hear people use words like that,” the mental health worker, who is not being identified to protect her privacy, told ABC News.
“If I was going to take a job and get a job, I would have done it.
I would not have had to go through this.
But, it’s the only way I’m going to get out of here.
It is so important.”
The man, who was in his late 40s, told her he was “tired of people trying to make me feel bad.”
He said he was tired of being called names.
“When you talk about killing yourself, it makes me feel sad, sad, and I just want to be done with it,” he said.
“And it makes people feel bad.
I want to stop this, and we have to do something about it.”
The worker, an assistant professor at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, said she spoke up about her concerns about the mental disorder of PTSD after receiving a text message that said, “kill myself.”
She told ABCNews.com that the person who told her to kill her, told to her by someone she was a patient with PTSD, that he “could kill himself,” because he “was a patient” with PTSD.
The woman who was asked to kill someone was told that her “death would be a loss to everyone,” she said.
She was then told that she could not “do anything to stop” it.
“They said they didn’t care.
They said we didn’t need to care.
That was their only reason,” she told ABC.
“I was so confused.
I didn’t know how they knew.”
She said she did not want to go on Facebook.
She said that her friend was in a “bad spot.”
“She was in that state of denial.
I don’t know if she is OK, or what happened,” she recalled.
“She did nothing.
She didn’t call.
She went on Facebook and her friend started talking about how he wanted to kill himself.
She started crying.
I’m not sure if it was because I felt bad or because it was just so sad.
I was so hurt.
I couldn’t even say anything to her.
I felt like I was being told I should kill myself.”
The woman was asked if she would call the police or talk to a counselor.
She declined to do so.
“We have to find ways to fix this,” she added.
“There has to be a way to heal.
I do not think people have the right to hurt someone.
They have the ability to call the cops, and they can say they were the victim.
But that does not mean that they need to do that.
I think there needs to be more education about mental health.
It needs to stop. “
People should be able to talk about mental illness without being made to feel like it is a secret.
It needs to stop.
I just wish that the way they handled it was a little different.”
She added, “I am not happy about it, and it’s not the way I want it to be.”
The North Carolina Republican Party said it was “aware” of the incident and has been in contact with the woman.
“The North Carolina Democratic Party takes its responsibility to ensure the well-being of our state party members very seriously,” the party said in a statement.
The National Association of Social Workers said it “deeply deplores the inappropriate comments made by the employee of a North Carolina mental health facility.”
It said in an email that it has “deep concerns about comments made about the patient by the mental hospital employee, and strongly condemns any inappropriate actions by any staff member.”
The union that represents North Carolina state mental health workers has said it has spoken to the state’s mental hospital about the incident.
