      A - I N F O S  N E W S  S E R V I C E

Between two and three hundred people assembled in
Whitehall on 14th September, before proceeding to the
Imperial War Museum. There were protesting against
the government's Mental Health Bill, which includes
powers to detain people with 'dangerous personality
disorders' indefinitely. It was a mixed bunch of nutters
and concerned carers (in the past I've been brushed off
as a nutter when I've desperately been seeking help).
I was very impressed by a demonstrator who had a
globe with miniature cymbals that tingled. I also spotted
a carer from Berkshire, with graphic photographs of a
mentally-ill suicide. There was a coach party from
Birmingham. Finally there was a desperate plea on
behalf of a female who'd been detained in a secure unit.
