Walcott, who was once a devout Christian, posted videos about her faith and viewed some clips about ancient Egyptian religions. Suddenly, vile and threatening messages from mysterious people flooded her YouTube in-box. At first, she asked the harassers to stop. Then, she simply ignored the messages. When they began posting videos about her and sharing her real name and personal information, Walcott turned to the authorities for help.
Ironically, seeking assistance would be her greatest mistake. Walcott discovered links between government agents, the National Health Service, and the cyber attacks. Soon, the attacks would make the leap from cyberspace to the real world, and Walcott would end up in a government psychiatric ward.
Her explosive new book exposes the terrifying dangers of unchecked government control, antiquated mental health laws, and the corrupt ties between the two.
Walcott’s discovery of the links between the NHS and law enforcement almost got her shut away for life. With the release of Institutionalised, she’s fighting back....Continua
Author Kevine Walcott was a successful businesswoman living a peaceful life in the U.K. when she decided to connect through social media through YouTube and presented her views of Christianity and ancient Egyptian religions. It all seemed so innocent - until her actions attracted a group of stalkers and bullies intent on bringing her down.
Not only were they unresponsive to her requests to cease their harassment, but they gained access to and posted her private information and life. At this point you'd think the authorities could help, as Kevine Walcott did when she turned to them; but her discoveries of links between her government, the National Health Service and the cyberattacks eventually led to her institutionalization in a mental health hospital - and if you don’t think this could happen to a savvy business woman, Institutionalised demonstrates otherwise.
It identifies antiquated mental health laws and corruptive collusion between government entities, it documents how freedom of religion and thought comes to be linked to mental illness - and is dealt with appropriately - and most of all, it is a specific blend of autobiography and reflection on the interactions between government and health agencies which should be in the hands of any reader concerned about civil liberties.
What sets Institutionalised apart from other accounts of commitment is its attention to exploring these connections. All are presented in the context of the author's personal experience, and there's much greater impact achieved by blending it with an autobiography rather than making it an investigative report, as so many stories choose.
Gripping, revealing, and eye-opening: be prepared for a mental health and social issues survey that offers a hard-hitting analysis of the UK's systems of individual control and manipulation....Continua
