n.— «The systems of today support what I call “handicaptivity.” We need systematic transformation. Instead of measuring satisfaction with mental health services, which is too low a standard, we need to evaluate quality of life based on universal standards of freedom, friendship and participation in economic and cultural life.» —“Mental illness and transformation” by Susan Austin Green Left Weekly (Chippendale, New South Wales, Australia) May 24, 2006.
