Kindness: a to z of mental health

What can I say?
Give me words of love
How can I help?
Don't expect too much

What shall I do?
Just being with me is great
What do you need?
Regular meals to eat

What's your aim?
To get through the day
Should I leave you alone?
Please don't go away

Would you like to go out?
If you can help me get there
Can I go wrong?
Not if you care

I've just come home after a week away working in institutions with many people incarcerated due to crimes committed while in a psychotic state. It is so very sad - the penal systems in the western world are rapidly becoming the mental health service delivery systems.
