About this title


Abuse and Disempowerment in the Name of Best Value

By Gordon Shippey

ISBN: 9781847470966
Published: 2007
Pages: 158
Key Themes: mental health services, anti-psychiatry, abuse, epilepsy


This is a book for all those who struggle for real control of their own lives and for those who try to support them against a very powerful tide of oppression. It's so easy for some to turn a blind eye to the suffering of people they do not know. So lift the veil on the UK's faceless people and break 'the monkey rule', I'm sure we all know it - see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil! This is an intelligent and damning critique of mental health services in the UK, a potent call-to-arms for the survivor movement.

About the Author

Gordon Shippey was born in May 1973 in Middlesbrough, where he still lives. Gordon is a trained physicist and is skilled in electronics, he worked for some time in the nuclear industry. After suffering an accident, Gordon developed acute epilepsy, and was exposed to the gross inequality facing many people with different disabilities. Over the years, he became disillusioned with the ethos within the health system. This lead him to write his account of the awful experiences many people had within the health and disability services. He has become a campaigner for civil rights, particularly for those with disabilities, and even ran as a candidate for the 2003 local elections.
