Spina A. Ontario Ministry of Health Anna Rose Spina corrects mental health officials on statements about the existence of sensitivities.; 1990.
Spina points out that Zimmerman did not question the existence of sensitivities, contrary to the assertions of Gail Waller and others in the Mental Health Facilities Branch. Even so, Waller and her colleagues turned a blind eye on the abuse of psych patients whose problems are caused or exacerbated by sensitivities, contributing to at least 15% of suicides by doing so. While the Ashford and Miller report was not exclusively about sensitivities and mental illness, it did end with a warning that psychiatric symptoms can be caused by sensitivities and that it was important to rule out sensitivities in ambiguous cases before subjecting the patient to treatments that could injure or kill if their central nervous system dysfunction was caused or exacerbated by sensitivities, or before affecting their ability to get reasonable accommodation by labelling them.
