The Ward


Louisa Campbell’s experiences both as a Registered Mental Health Nurse and psychiatric patient are brought to life in this astonishing pamphlet. People with catatonia, schizophrenia, depression, paranoia, mania, anorexia and alcoholism speak out from the pages, as well as the nurses trying to care for them. These poems tell the truth. Their voices need to be heard.

The poems in ‘The Ward’ offer a unique poetic insight into the UK’s contemporary mental health system from someone who’s experienced both sides of the asylum fence. Louisa Campbell delves into the troubled lives of others with verve, pathos and passion.  A refreshingly brave and authentic voice.
