John Dempsey Hospital Psychiatry First Floor, U-Conn Health Center, Farmington, CT.  PAM  IN RESTRAINTS AND  SECLUSION for 3 days and 2 nights alone  in the 1980’s

 

I was left alone like this, offered neither food nor water and given only an apple when I begged for one, for three days and two night at John Dempsey Hospital in the 1980s at University of Connecticut Health Center, in Farmington Connecticut. If anyone remembers having been through this, Please get in touch with me! ( If anyone know whether Jim or Don Steadman, the aides, are still alive, please let me know…or have them get in touch too. I believe they would remember attending to me while the doctor kept me trussed up like this…)

  1. I’m going to send Wikipedia a link to this artwork and ask them to post it onto their Anti-Psychiatry page. As long as psychiatry continues to torture and subjugate Mad people, it will never, ever rid itself of its anti- movements. I hope all of the brutes who did this to Pam rot in hell.

  2. I’m a social worker. I’ve only been in the field for a fairly short amount of time. I have a lot left to learn. I’ve been reading your blog for a very long time. Right now, I work with adults struggling with mental illness. Many of my clients have a diagnosis of schizophrenia. I want you to know that I’m listening.

  3. Dear WLIG, I live at Meadowview
    recovery Residence in Vermont now. I escaped Connecticut a year ago… But they still use restraints in VT though much less so here.
    I know because I have been subjected to them even in Vermont. But nowhere not even in CT has any hospital subjected me to the torture that Dempsey hsopital did the way I depict in this picture!

Talk to me! Let's continue the conversation.
