Sometimes we need to appreciate the little things in life💙
I'm feeling incredibly grateful today 🙏
I'm so thankful for the simple things in life that we often take for granted@RespectYourselflzz
'I think the solution here is reporting.'
The Hampshire Police and Crime Commissioner encourages 'anybody who can't remember how they got home to the point where they think they've been spiked by a needle or drink, please report it to the police.'
@GMB I was spiked over 20 years ago and it still affects me now the cheek of the man spikes me three times I was set up by a female friend. There is medical evidence I had toxic poisoning. With the right support the doorman could help sadly no support? #Norfolk
'When it happened to me I was more scared but then when it happen to my sister it just made me really angry.'
Leah's sister Jemma had her drink spiked in a nightclub just a couple of months before Leah was spiked by a needle.
'It's always that dreaded call as a parent.'
Campaigners are organising a boycott of nightclubs after a rise in reports that women are being drugged by injection.
Karen's daughter Leah was spiked after feeling a very sharp scratch on her arm while in a nightclub.

You can report signs of modern slavery to us on 101, or you can call the Modern Slavery Helpline on 08000 121 700 Modern Slavery Helpline. Modern slavery is closer than you think. To spot it, we must look beneath the surface @UnseenUK
@KBGreyhoundlady@ITVNewsPolitics@RespectYourself Your comment is totally true as to why men maybe doing this but I've just seen a piece on Good Morning Britain where a young woman said that women are doing it to women also. What's going on there. Has it become some malicious game.
'I think it's a fair assumption there may be a sexual motive in [injection spiking], but there isn't an indication'
Chief Constable Sarah Crew, who leads police work on rape and adult sexual offences, comments on reports of injections spiking itv.com/news/2021-10-2…
If you're dehydrated, drink plenty of fluids: water, diluted squash or fruit juice. These are much more effective than large amounts of tea or coffee. Fizzy drinks may contain more sugar than you need and may be harder to take in large amounts.Source: respectyourself.org.uk/how-can-i-trea…

As a South Asian, I found it hard to tell my Pakistani family friends I had mental illness due to the huge stigma
Yet, I was often labelled as 'unwilling to engage' when I told some care providers why I didn't want to speak with family/friends
'Just seek help' often isn't easy
Healthcare professionals - if you make stigmatising comments about patients with mental illness behind closed doors, your patients won't hear it
But colleagues like me who have had severe mental illness will. And it bloody hurts. #WorldMentalHealthDay
This is really overlooked in trauma and probably one of the hardest for others to understand, especially when you are unable to find the right words to communicate effectively. #trauma#ptsd#cptsd@RespectYourself
Another report, another apology and again comments that these are ‘historical failures’. Well sadly these same failures are prevalent today. And recent cases would suggest things are even worse! Accountability not more apologies is the answer
Reading between the lines here it is clear to me junior detectives were challenging senior officers determined to close this case down… mirrors my experiences in GMP.
Janner child abuse claims: police guilty of failing to investigate, report finds theguardian.com/uk-news/2021/o…
It’s just not good enough… in the past 8 weeks alone we’ve helped with 116 current cases where victims are not being heard & their abuse not investigated. Wise words from @VeraBaird
How do you fix a problem like Greater Manchester Police? manchestereveningnews.co.uk/news/greater-m…

At the end of a lengthy and complex trial, the jury found Carson Grimes guilty of 36 serious sexual offences.
We hope the victims, whose testimonies helped to secure this verdict, feel some sense of closure following this conviction.
Grimes relied on his victims being too afraid to report him and, if they did, he thought no one would believe them.
Thanks to their courage in coming forward and giving evidence, he will serve a minimum of 22 years in prison.
More victims have since come forward since this case was aired.
It is never too late to come forward and report, your voice will be heard.
You can call 101 or report online bedfordshire.police.uk/report
