One of the caseworkers in my office is going to visit a client at home tomorrow. While we do have various safeguards, it's still not really a good idea to make these visits solo, and my colleague was getting more and more anxious thinking of The Possibilities.
Looking through the file, another colleague said, "Look at this. You can always tell if someone's a bit mental if they write perfectly normally, followed by one sentence all in caps."
I FOUND THIS QUITE OFFENSIVE.
1. "It is universally agreed that the majority of the mentally ill who are receiving appropriate treatment, do not carry more risk for violence than the general population."
2. The second colleague? The one who made the super-speedy logical leap from caps to mad to probably homicidal? Knows that I have a mental illness.
3. WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH USING CAPS ANYWAY GOD DAMN.
