Another article about the barbaric treatment of people in psych wards – this case a young woman diagnosed with autism

Mental health provision in the Uk is a disgrace, and the psychiatric profession is riddled with sociopathic, sadistic thugs and abusers from top to bottom.

“Out of the corner of my eye I saw the ward manager stride towards me. He knelt down and whispered in my ear: ‘If you try that again, Alexis, I’ll see to it that you don’t leave this room for a month.’ I told them what they had done to me was illegal, since I hadn’t been sectioned under the Mental Health Act. Their response was to section me and put me in segregation for eight days.

I was locked in a room with only a bed, a mattress, a single duvet sheet and a pillow. There was no table or chair. No stimulation, no human contact, no clocks. There was only me, growing more distressed and anxious but trying to appear calm and controlled.

From that point, I was stuck in an endless cycle. If my behaviour was ‘difficult’ – as any autistic person’s would be in that environment – it was used as a justification for preventing me from leaving. And I desperately wanted to leave.”
