I saw this video earlier this year during the Service Meeting. I can't even express how distraught I was watching it. It was one of the final straws leading me out the door, permanently.
An additional danger I would think, is that was viewed by the rank and file who may think this is the way to " help" another brother or sister who may confide in them!
I decided to call Brooklyn to express how seriously wrong and dangerous it was after a few days. I just couldn't stop thinking about what could very well happen if this was a real life situation. Had my family not taken me to a hospital when I was in a very similar situation many years ago, as the saying goes, I may not be here writing this post.
After I expressed my concerns, I got the non-committal run around for quite some time. I continued to press the point until finally the brother acknowledged that "I had a point."
Of course that means nothing, I can't understand why NOBODY involved in producing this rubbish had the sense to point out how wrong and dangerous their " training'" is.
Any suicidal idealisation must be taken seriously, and when someone is to the point of having a plan and actually voicing it, immediate help should be arranged.
How can this organization legally get away with this? Shouldn't they be held accountable? Could the video be made available to mental health professionals? Would they be able to do anything to prevent this information from doing real harm?
