ACC won’t cover ‘mental injuries’

Why ACC is turning away mosque attack survivors


If it had been his body rather than his mind that was injured that day, right now crown entity ACC (Accident Compensation Corporation) could be offering him up to 80 percent of his normal wages, transport to medical and rehabilitation appointments, aids and equipment to help with his injury, and help at home.

But ACC won’t cover ‘mental injuries’ unless they fit within a narrow set of boundaries: they must be sustained while a person is at work, as a result of a physical injury, or from sexual abuse.

Those boundaries leave Nabi in no man’s land, suffering and unsupported. Others are in the same position. By the end of April, 85 claims involving mental injuries caused by the mosque attacks had been filed with ACC, and 35 of those had been declined because they didn’t involve a physical or work-related injury (decisions are pending on another 25 of the claims).

The predicament of those turned down has turned a spotlight on a long-running discrepancy in the way ACC covers mental and physical injuries. But will it prompt change?

end quote (my bold )

Similar situation, will also apply to cult survivors too. They’ll often not be covered by ACC, for brain injury caused through their own traumatic experience surrounding cult situations either.Unless it fall within the narrow boundary

must be sustained while a person is at work, as a result of a physical injury, or from sexual abuse.

That’s as far as the scope of the situation is been set up. People that fall outside of that will be pushing shit uphill, if they do try and get support (they’ll be fighting against the rabbit-warren bureaucracy of ACC. Chances are,perhaps it’ll just then serve to only help do your brain injury, even “more damage” than ever, long term )

Therefore we have a situation where our government will: fully prepared to allow these cults to have the full freedom to be able to cause real harm to certain people, causing harm to whom ever they may choose to discriminate against, an pick on

2. Government will then even still continue to reward these cults actions, by still continually issuing them with charity status (like an ultimate insult to survivors involved)

3. Meanwhile, our Government have ALSO even carelessly set up their ACC policies too of what are in fact been purposely set up so narrow, that it means certain cult survivor, wont even be eligible at all, for any support for brain injury (of which our government had most generously sanctioned through applying the religious liberty, bullshit)


So naturally little wonder then, there’s some people who couldn’t handle to struggle on, any longer

Little doubt, a number might have suffered even more, while trying to battle the government ACC bureaucratic bullshit policy 

1.Take another look at the video, the one of what i posted in my previous blog post (before this one) , with the situation of a family what were struggling and trying to get their children returned. Reconsider all the immense amount of trauma involved, within the ongoing  drawn out saga, of like what that video helped to expose

2. Then also consider, that fairly likely nobody on that video would have ever been eligible, for ongoing ACC support, for any of their brain injury caused through experiencing such extremely traumatic types of trauma. Trauma even to level that someone were in fact trying to kidnap your own children (experiencing them doing so very brazenly  right within surrounding of the very same town where you live). If any had happen to also still be trying to keep their own businesses running, or had been too mentally unwell to continue to be employed at the same time as being faced by this level of trauma and what not, then its just too bloody bad for their bad luck then, isn’t it ?


ACC wont be so likely to bother to step in an help anyone try and pick up the pieces

Think about it

How the hell can that be allowed to ok to happen?


If our government, would feel they are in fact prepared to allow

1.freedom of white supremacist .

2.Or are prepared to allow freedom of extremist cults (including Brethren supremacists)

Either way its STILL to do with supremacist belief (which organize so as to discriminate an cause harm unto others)

Both organization above which both have policy what tend to cause division among certain citizen (discriminately at whim)

Surely, the government must then also be prepared to fully cover the injuries caused to citizen as well too ?

So as to not be HUGELY negligent within ACTION of their own approach, to concern for citizens health?

Its about, our governments acting “responsibly”

Isn’t it?

And so if our prime minister Jacinda Ardern,really wants to stand by her  PR “one people” speech-claim, of what was kind of designed to help  make herself seem cool an like something extra new,  and all of suddenly “so -alternative”, an “actually different” and more honest and what not, for a actual change

Then hey, perhaps we may be looking forward to seeing some decent change, finally ?








About ExEB

I'm a agnostic/atheist . Interested in learning more about science. I also am an "ex-member" of a group most publicly known within modern times, as the Exclusive Brethren. Whom are an off-shoot of the original Plymouth Brethren group. I'd say it likely my personality could possibly be described as quirky.You know ,as in being , unconventional , unorthodox , unusual, off-centre, strange, bizarre, weird, peculiar, odd, freakish, outlandish, offbeat, out of the ordinary, bohemian, alternative, zany I'm sure iv'e been classed as "crazy" . Many times But then, being born into a group like the exclusive brethren. Doesn't lend itself ? to tend to produce things considered as being "very normal" .Does it I escaped the Exclusive Brethren cult as a 15 year old teenager. Even since that time iv'e been trying to adjust to living life outside the cult. With much of my life being lived within the genre of "wild colonial boy" style. In the general sense of a church-rebel picking and choosing from role models who appeared within-life along the way. But as the exclusive brethren cult had traditionally maintained a general church-rule , of need to shun and totally excommunicate any ex member of their group.Treating such people as if they were dead. Thus this situation developed more to do with my need of following traditionally enforced church-rule , as apposed to it being so much about "life-choices". Certain emotional experiences, and parts of life in general, have led to me adopting a sense of low self esteem. Which is a situation i still deal with from time to time. Through my ongoing interest in science. I find i am able to gather more information to help me better understand my situation. Much about life for me, has often seemed like a massive puzzle.With many missing pieces.
