DC on Copper PlateI met Forensic Psychiatry Patient DC at River House (Bethlem Royal Hospital) at 10.00am on tuesday the 25th of August. He had just woken up and was very tired but was happy to talk to me. We talked in the “Interview Room” for an hour and a half. DC told me about his family, his teenage life and his experiences in Prison and Psychiatric Hospital. After our conversation I made the following sketches.
