It's Madness, I Tell You!

The Drawing Board in New Street advertised its Halloween event - Return To The Asylum - on Facebook...
In the online advert, the bar said: “The deranged doctors and nurses have lost control of the mental Asylum AGAIN and all the killers and psychopaths are running free.
"Enter at your own risk.... Don’t forget to have your medicine on arrival!
Well, the snowflakes aren't going to take that lying down!
Amanda Griffiths, from York Mental Health Peer Support Group, said the way the party had been advertised was “ill thought out and irresponsible”.
Amanda said: “We would like business owners in York to be a little more responsible about how they promote the events and how they learn about mental health.
“It’s about recognising that a lot of people who are receiving mental health care and treatment, or suffering from difficulties, might have experienced traumatic life changing events in the past.”
