Basic Yet Informative Enough
The app is so much easier and more understandable than the website - as the website has quite a lot of information. There aren't too many options to choose from, so the app also makes searching and ready everything, faster. What options are available, can be quite confusing - it doesn't have a title pertaining to what the post/page is about, and I had to open most of them to see what it was about.
Besides the general 'contact us' (on the website only), I was hoping to find other information - I suffer with PTSD (and now, multiple related disabilities and illnesses), which was turned against me and used on others. Recently, I ended up contacted some organisations that advised me to contact Human Rights about the things I've been made to do and the things that have been done to me. I had never thought about it, until those organisations pointed out the obvious "for the past 20 years, you have been discriminated against in almost every way possible. What you've been forced to do and what was forced on you, shows that you have no rights whatsoever and you need to contact Human Rights (Australia)". They had also mentioned another organisation to contact but I forgot what/who.
Long story short: my medical records and details were changed so I could be groomed into harming other people for a certain government department, against my own will and control - having to do it under threat, which worsened when I had a child and was threatened she'd be taken away if I didn't continue doing their dirty work. So I'm wondering: is there a section for that type of contact? Even a 'Report Discrimination (etc) Here'? Or similar? I think I'll be using the 'Contact Us', asking them whereabouts I should send the details. Problem is, it's quite long... 20 years of it!
