"Emancipation - starting at the Top"

About: Legislative process

(as the patient),

It is time for parliament to stop discriminating against mentally ill people both within and outside Westminster. Within Parliament MPs are coerced into concealing the true nature of their life-experiences by not revealing any direct experience of mental ill-health, for fear of permanent expulsion and facing ostracism and ridicule from the wider public. Outside, the outcome of this stigma is to have us denied the benefit of their experience in shaping legislative measures that profoundly affect a large number of our citizens, who languish in private torment through being mis-construed, mis-understood, and mis-represented! It also sends the signal to the public that it is OK to marginalise and exclude people with experience of mental ill-health - and disabled people in general. We MUST have our say that this is Wrong and Unjust. Please visit Movement EMancipating People to Have A Say In Society
