    great that people are finally talking about this.  I was drugged with some horrible anti psychotic drugs in Hill End adolescent unit in the 1970s.  All my life I could never understand the way I was when I left the unit - I pushed the terrifying side effects of the drugs and the trauma out of my mind.  I now understand they were experimenting on children in the 70s and 80s and trying to find an easy cure for emotional or behavioural problems using these drugs, instead of addressing society’s problems.  Truly appalling…

    I was in Middlesex lodge in the late 70s and forced to take drugs everyday, today at 51 I take anti depressants and mood stabilisers for bipolar and borderline personality disorder although I am a fully functioning member of society I often wonder if all those drugs contributed to my condition. Horrible abusive place.
