Empowerment in the Psychiatric unit
by Carol Batton
us with a Notice board
We have no other way, of really being heard
We have no other way, of hearing each other
No other way of telling another
Our place should be in a prominent place;
Let us face each other; the worker; the visitor
I know funds are low
A few pieces of paper, two pens
And some drawing pins
Empower us with a space to be free,
One we could share,
And all of us see
Announcing ourselves properly
Could you empower us in reality?
Has anyone heard of autonomy?
Using three foot, four inches by four foot, three ?
