    Had to reblog this Ruth, the segment with Alice being asked “why haven’t you killed yourself yet” happened to me too. This abusive bullying by DWP & their minions must stop. xx

    I am so sorry this also happened to you. It puts people at risk, and I agree it must be stopped. They think they have covered themselves by asking this in assessments, without realising it is the actual assessment regime that is the cause of so much distress. Take care xx
