Once upon a time there were three blokes. One was blind, one had autism, all three had learning disabilities. The odds on ‘living happily ever after’ might have been better if the labels stopped there. All three had mental health and challenging behaviour labels. And all three had a reputation, shaped by words like ‘forensic’ and ‘dangerous’, the stickiest labels of all. All three were in-patients in NHS funded assessment and treatment units – like the infamous Castlebeck’s Winterbourne View – and/or equivalent secure residential units.
