Through the Glass Doors

Through the Glass Doors is an autobiographical illustrated book, co-created by 16 previous patients of Huntercombe CAMHS hospitals. It details the horrors vulnerable children face every day at the hands of Huntercombe (now Active Care Group) in placements which supposedly provide specialist mental health care and treatment. The book, alongside a letter of recommendation which provides lived-experience based solutions to Huntercombe’s failings, has been sent to a number of key medical and political figures in the hopes it will stir a response, in turn drastically improving the quality of care provided by Huntercombe and wider CAMHS and adult mental health services.
