    Wondering about those too ill to present, or who are not aware of their behaviour, and who don't have family support? Involuntary treatment under the Mental Health Act excludes personality disorders (in my recent experience), they're not deemed mental illnesses (this is at the PA - is it different on the North side or is this Qld policy?

    Well done! There are two comments - all quadrants of the circle ideally should include family and friends, currently it appears as though they are only involved during a crisis. Also, the message of "individual choice" in dial up dial down is good in theory, but in practice is more likely a collaborative decision between consumer, family and service provider, because definitions of mild vs. severe for the consumer/family are subjective, whilst for the service provider need to be rationalised to manage resources.
