Locate your mentally ill loved ones anytime, anywhere.

NamiLok8 is a leading grassroots innovator and provider of products and services that address the expanding personal monitoring market and provide enhanced control and peace-of-mind to the modern mobile family and friends of the mentally ill.

Today, in our busy lives, it is one of our greatest fears that a mentally ill loved one, child or adult, will get out of the back bedroom or basement, stray away and get lost.

All too often we hear about mentally ill adult children that are wandering off to other states to avoid their AOT orders, quitting their medications and preferring to be alone even if that means homelessness. NamiDearests are finding themselves in a difficult situation for which they are unable to summon help from law enforcement in order to locate and commit their loved ones to the haven of a locked psychiatric facility for a healing chemical lobotomy and safe, modern electroshock.

NamiLok8 is making use of state-of-the-art positioning technologies and has its own patented cell ID algorithm that gives an approximate location through GSM which is then refined to within 3 meters when a GPS fix is possible. This unique feature allows indoor and outdoor positioning as well as a quick approximate location of your mentally ill friend or family member.

NamiLok8‘s location based products functions as the ideal dragnet, quickly and accurately identifying a mentally ill person’s location.

NamiLok8‘s flagship products, fu.mom8+ and No-Freedom are the world’s first and smallest GPS locators, designed exclusively to address the wandering mentally ill adults and children at-risk market and to provide personal family and friends enhanced monitoring and control. For only $500.00 more, we can implant this GPS device into your mentally ill loved one.

The GPS locators have been designed with simplicity and ease of use in mind and are accessible at home, abroad or on holiday from a computer or mobile phone. Each GPS implant comes with the added bonus of the Shock-and–Awe feature. Designed for use with children and teens, the shock device can be remotely activated to prevent your loved one from leaving the house or yard. A gentle, but painfully uncomfortable shock will remind your mentally ill loved one exactly who is the master of your domain. Some scholarships are available through SUMISA, the federal Substance Use and Mental Illness Services Administration. Tell SUMISA the story of your wandering loved one, and see if you qualify for extra help.

Happy Tracking!

Keeping up with state-of-the-art human rights violations

Here at NamiDearest, we want to be sure you know how to have your mentally ill loved one arrested and incarcerated in a psychiatric facility any time you feel the need or desire to do so. Our greatest piece of literary genius on the topic, to date, is a tip sheet written by our beloved friend, DJ Jaffe. Thanks DJ!

The tip sheet contains everything you need to know to effectively break the law in order to get the relief you want. Human rights are constantly wasted on the mentally ill. No more sleepless nights trying to hog-tie your crazy relation…unless, of course, you’re both into that kind of thing.

How to prepare for an emergency

by

D.J. Jaffe

Sometime, during the course of your loved one’s illness, you may need the police. By preparing now, before you need help, you can make the day you need help go much more smoothly. There are three things to do.

First, you should establish contact with your local precinct, before you need help. (That’s right. Violate your loved one’s privacy and get them flagged by the local cops. This way, they will know to show up with one hand on their balls and the other hand on their tasers.)

Secondly, you should have the attached info sheet filled out in duplicate, ready at all times.

Thirdly, you should read the article at the end of this page on how to make 911 respond to your calls. (The part where we explain how to make a false report and support it with “evidence” such as furniture we turn over ourselves to make it look like our loved one is violent.)

1. ESTABLISH CONTACT WITH PRECINCT

Someday your loved one may be missing from home or hospital. Normally, the police will not fill out a missing persons report & start looking for them until they are gone 24 hours. But by making arrangements beforehand, you can insure that if this happens to you, they will start looking immediately. Or, let’s say your relative is becoming increasingly agitated & uncontrollable & you have to call the police to take them to a hospital. It is very likely that the police will go to the hospital of their choice, not yours. But by making arrangements beforehand, you can have a say in where that person is taken. In addition, if your relative is picked up for some crime (drugs, let’s say); by making prior arrangements, you can help see that they go to a hospital instead of jail. Finally, it may make it easier for you to get someone involuntarily committed, if & when you have to do that.

The way to make these arrangements is to call the “Community Patrol Officer Program” (C-POP Officer) at your local police precinct, now, before you need help. If you do not have a C-POP program (i.e, outside NYC), call the station commander.

Tell them that you have a MI relative at home & that you want to make the police aware of it, in case you ever need help. Tell them you are worried that if they are ever missing the police won’t start looking until after 24 hours; or that if you need police to take your relative to a hospital, they won’t go to the one you want; or that if your relative is busted, they will go to jail, instead of to a hospital. Tell the C-POP (pronounced, “see-pop”) officer, that it was suggested that individuals with MI relatives contact the C-POP officers, before help is needed to make them aware of the situation, & that is why you are calling. The officer may think this is unusual, but you should do it anyway. FOLLOW THE CONVERSATION UP, WITH A LETTER ADDRESSED TO THE C-POP OFFICER & SEND A COPY TO THE PRECINCT COMMANDER.

If you ever do need help, call 911 if it’s an emergency. If not, call your local precinct. When the police come, mention the C-POP Officer & Precinct Commander by name. The police who come to your door do not know what to expect. By mentioning these names, you help calm them & help identify that it is not you who needs help, it is your relative. They will also be more likely to listen to you, & may even get the Commander on the phone or walkie talkie. Because you have prepared ahead of time, they are more likely to take the person where you want them to be taken, & to listen to you carefully. Be calm. (and bring donuts)

2. PREPARE INFORMATION & HAVE IT READY

If your relative needs emergency hospitalization, it will be extremely stressful to everyone. It is made more difficult by the myriad of questions that need to be answered. By having the answers to these questions written and ready, you can insure that the emergency hospitalization will not only be less stressful, but that your relative is more likely to get proper care. For instance, identify his doctor, & what medicines he is currently on, so those medicines can be continued, increased, or removed as appropriate. Indicate what hospital you use. Below is a form you should fill out. After filling it out, make two copies & keep one on hand (in your wallet) all the time. One for you, one for the police, one for the hospital.

FILL OUT THE FOLLOWING FORM AND KEEP DUPLICATES HANDY

CRISIS INFORMATION PAGE (FOR POLICE/HOSPITAL/EMS)

Please take this person to _____________________hospital.

This person is not a criminal. He/she has a mental illness. Please treat with compassion and dignity. Thank you. (That part is to assuage your conscience, so you can sleep without concern that your loved one has been arrested, hand-cuffed, four-point-restrained, or coerced under threat of physical force to remove them from their home to a locked facility where they will be drugged and, perhaps, restrained to a bed, placed in an empty room with a mattress on the floor, or even electroshocked against their will with your consent. Better yet, just invent your own definition of compassion and dignity to include these degrading human rights violations.)

How to make 911 respond to your calls

(This article was based on information provided by Dr. Darwin Buschman, Chief Psychiatrist, Manhattan Mobile Crisis Intervention Services.)

Individuals with neurobiological disorders (“NBD” formerly known as serious mental illnesses) are occassionaly danger to themselves, suicidal and/or danger to others. When this happens, you may want to call 911.

It is often difficult to get 911 to respond to your calls if you need someone to come & take your MI relation to a hospital emergency room (ER). They may not believe that you really need help. And if they do send the police, the police are often reluctant to take someone for involuntary commitment. That is because cops are concerned about liability. They don’t want to be sued for taking someone to the ER involuntarily. Another reason is that they must stay with the person until he or she is admitted. This can take between 2-48 hours. Cops don’t want to sit in ER; sergeants don’t want to take two police off the streets. Following is how you can make 911 & the police overcome their reluctance to help.

When calling 911, the best way to get quick action is to say, “Violent EDP.” Or “Suicidal EDP.” EDP stands for Emotionally Disturbed Person. This shows the operator that you know what you’re talking about. Describe the danger very specifically. “He’s a danger to himself” is not as good as “This morning my son said he was going to jump off the roof.” Be specific. “He’s a danger to others” is not as good as “My son has just struck a neighbor for no reason.” Also, give past history of violence. This is especially important if the person is not acting up. Again, be specific. “Every time my son gets psychotic, he has hurt himself. Last spring, he cut his wrists. I think he’s going to do it again.”

When the police come, they need compelling evidence that the person is a danger to self or others before they can involuntarily take him or her to ER for evaluation. If the person stops acting out by the time police arrive, this can be difficult. Again, give specific recent examples of danger.

Realize that you & the cops are at cross purposes.

You want them to take someone to the hospital. They don’t want to do it. You need to get on common ground with the cops to gain their cooperation. Say, “Officer, I understand your reluctance. Let me spell out for you the problems & the danger. I understand that if you take my son to the ER involuntarily, you’ll have to wait with him until the doctors make a decision on whether to admit. I also understand your concern about litigation if you take him involuntarily. Therefore, why don’t we work together so my son goes voluntarily.” Cops will often change their attitude dramatically if you say this. If a person goes voluntarily, the cops don’t have to stay in the ER. They don’t have to use handcuffs. If a person goes involuntarily, they go the same way, except in handcuffs. This can often be used to convince a person to go voluntarily. You can say, ” I know you don’t want to go, but I think you need to go.” The cops can say, “You’re going to go one way or another, cuffs or no cuffs.” Usually the person will go voluntarily when faced with this choice. (Threats work! We call this giving them a “choice”. You can get a woman to “voluntarily” have “sex” with you using the same methods. “Either you let me put my penis in your vagina, or I hold you down and shove it in. Either way, you’re going to get fucked.” See how effective that can be? If you have a gun or a taser like the cops will have when they come for your loved one, you can very quickly get the woman to “voluntarily” have “sex” with you.)

Once the person is taken to the ER, cops leave. So it’s a good idea to have a family member accompany the patient. Let the ER security guard, triage nurse, & others know that the person is MI & a danger to self or others. When you go to ER, make sure you have the “How to Prepare for Emergencies” form that is in this newsletter (Note: This is a form with the name, address, SS#, Med history, current med, diagnosis, name and number of doctor, name and number of next of kin, insurance, etc. In other words, all the info you would be asked in an emergency).

911 should be first resort in an immediate emergency, & the last resort when it’s not. If your family member needs help, not necessarily hospitalization, try Mobile Crisis Intervention Services.

The fact is that some families have learned to ‘turn over the furniture’ before calling the police. Many police require individuals with neurobiological disorders to be imminently dangerous before treating the person against their will. If the police see furniture disturbed they will usually conclude that the person is imminently dangerous.

A Quest for Answers

“All effective propaganda must be limited to a very few points and must harp on these in slogans until the last member of the public understands what you want him to understand.” ~Adolf Hitler

Every day, people contact us in a quest to navigate their state’s commitment laws and mental illness systems. Many times they are seeking help to force drug and/or incarcerate family members and friends who have stopped taking their medication and who no longer want anything to do with them. For anyone that has a “loved one” upon whom they may wish to force drug treatment or psychiatric confinement at some point, it is imperative to become acquainted with the commitment process now, rather than waiting for an opportunity to occur. The illogical and confusing process of commitment is difficult for NamiDearests to understand at any time, let alone during an exciting moment of opportunity to gain control over another person and remove his/her civil rights.

One important step is to look up your state’s commitment laws. The more you know about the laws in your state the more effectively you will be able to abuse them during a moment of opportunity. Learn what forms you will need to fill out and who you will need to contact if a moment of opportunity arises. A good place to start is the courthouse in the county where your “loved one” lives. Another resource is your state/local mental health departments. They may have helpful materials on psychiatric torture that they can provide.

Our government agencies here in the U.S. are right on top of implementing forced interventions. They will be there to assist if one of your loved ones decides to help you out in a mental health crisis too. Also, the local NAMI chapter in your family member’s area is a great resource for fascist family and friend support. Most of the NAMI members have been in similar situations and can give you the benefit of their experience. Don’t wait for a moment of opportunity…uhh…crisis to arrive. Create one!

More tips and strategies, including information on creating an opportunity to remove the rights of your loved one and force drug, or incarcerate them, and on creating a CARE kit, are available on our affiliate website.

BringChange2theParadigm?

This is clearly an attempt by some dirty little girl to undermine the wonderful advocacy work of our favorite Borderline, Ms. Glenn Close and the stellar BringChange2Mind organization. I am appalled!

Even our furry and feathered family members can have a mental illness

Many of us think of our pet as just another member of our family, so why shouldn’t we treat them like we treat our own children? It makes sense that if mental illness runs in families, our pets could become mentally ill as well. Indeed, this is what veterinary psychiatry has discovered. Mental illness in pets is on the rise!

“Dr Carter, a leading animal psychiatrist, said animals were being put on anti-depressant medication in increasing numbers as vets and owners became more aware of the signs of mental illness. “We use a lot of drugs like Prozac and other anti-depressants and Valium,” Dr Carter said.”

You may wonder how to identify mental illness in non-verbal creatures. Well, just as six month old mentally ill infants cannot describe their symptoms, we don’t need to hear from our pets to know that they too have a serious mental illness. It’s all about the behavior!

Has Rover hit his rock bottom? Is he defecating on the sidewalk?

Drinking out of toilets?

Licking his testicles on the living room sofa?

Don’t worry. Help is here. Psychiatry can treat pets with mental illness as effectively as they treat humans, and with the same drugs, no less!

“Year-old Luna is one of Dr Carter’s success stories. At just four months old, the labrador cross began displaying signs of severe mental illness. Owner Lydia Spicer said: “I was appalled and in tears when my four-month-old puppy turned vicious before my eyes. “I’d take her for a walk and if someone came past, she’d start going nuts and lunge and growl at them.”

Can you imagine how hard it must be to see one’s beloved little puppy lunging and growling at another animal during a walk? This is obviously a sign of a very disturbed little pup. Dogs are not the least bit territorial, so this is clearly a sign of irrational, sick dog behavior requiring psychiatric intervention.

“Not only dogs can develop mental disorders. Dr Carter said she had treated cats, horses and even birds. Birds being kept as pets quite often display signs of mental illness. The most common sign for birds with mental illness is plucking out their feathers. There are lots of reasons a bird might pull its feathers out, but anxiety can be a cause for it.”


We all know there’s nothing about keeping a living creature locked in a cage all day long while we’re away at work or running errands that should provoke such behavior. We love these creatures as much as we love our children. That’s why we cage them and keep them stored in our homes for our pleasure and enjoyment. Therefore, if Tweety starts pulling out her own feathers, she probably has a mental illness. This can be corrected with Prozac-laced birdseed. In extreme cases, anti-psychotic birdseed may be necessary. Your animal psychiatrist can provide you with all your treatment options.

Helpful hints *Sometimes, a smaller cage with no toys is a better option. If Tweety is self-harming, it may be useful to reduce her environmental stimulation. Additionally, this can give Tweety some motivation to stop acting out and to earn her toys back by engaging in the desired behaviors.*

Just as is the case with our own offspring, “We need to be more aware of the needs of animals and realize their needs are not always being met by our busy lifestyles.” Don’t stop to consider sending your beloved labrador to live on a farm just because he chews on his own paws until they bleed while you have him caged for 18 hours each day. That would be unreasonable. We can alleviate our pets’ needs by drugging them with the very same chemicals we use on our mentally ill children.

Psychiatry saves the day once again!

Update on recent Consumertocracy threats to public safety!

Fellow NamiDearests,

We recently brought you the startling footage of the Consumertocracy running amok in the streets of Albany, and it seems their threats just keep rolling in.

On March 2, 2011, menacing Consumertocracy leaders confronted and practically assaulted our brave mental illness policy hero, D.J. Jaffe as he made his way to testify at a joint budget hearing on Mental Hygiene in front of the New York State Legislature. Although, he was shaken, hair tousled, having difficulty articulating his words and comprehending the barrage of questions and information, he stood his ground and graciously attempted to communicate with these alleged “psychiatric survivors” in order to keep the situation from escalating to previous levels of chaos.

Thanks to D.J. Jaffe’s quick thinking and superb negotiation skills, no one got thrown off a subway platform at the event.

Will the brave Mr. Jaffe debate these Consumertocracy leaders? It’s too soon to tell. He did, however, decline the invitation to play in the Consumertocracy drumming circle.
