Harmful care might be an oxymoron but that’s how 18-year-old Oceane Campbell experienced the mental health system.
She felt blamed and shamed for attempting suicide and had to re-tell her story multiple times.
Twenty years on she and her once alienated mother reflect on inter-generational trauma, rape and suicide in their memoir, The Silence Between Us.
