Torture and its Psychological Effects in Northern Ireland (2017)

by Patricia Campbell

“Northern Irish people are neither mentally defective nor biologically prone to mental breakdown. We need a social model that validates our lived experiences, not a medical model that pathologizes them.”

– Patricia Campbell

Patricia Campbell grew up in Northern Ireland and worked as a Community Mental Health Nurse in Belfast. She later discovered that torture techniques developed in a Canadian university were used by the British military in Northern Ireland, and many of her patients were subjected to this torture. Because war-related trauma is not officially acknowledged, their suffering is often communicated through psychological symptoms. Drawing on her personal and professional experience, Campbell connects the trauma of war with the current ‘epidemic’ of mental distress. This publication is based on Campbell’s presentation to a forum of ‘mental-health’ professionals in Toronto, Canada, May 4, 2017.
