The Asylum Maze

As the marketing extravaganza of Halloween (not seen on these shores when I was a wee lad) draws ever nearer, I see some considerable controversy has blown up over Thorpe Park's Asylum Maze (an attraction that has been running for eight years now).

Campaigners claim having actors chasing people around an asylum stigmatises mental ill health.

I have never been to Thorpe Park, nor am ever likely to; therefore I cannot comment one way or another on whether this particular part of the park stigmatises those with mental health issues or not.

However, I would note this there have been many horror/thriller films using the plot of mental illness as their key theme (eg Silence of The Lambs). Should they be banned too?

Thoughtful and considered views and comments welcome.

  1. I get the impression that 'campaigners' like this are trying to normalise mental health issues and make them an accepted part of every day life.
    They are also trying to turn everyday feelings like loneliness or mild depression into mental health issues.
    The endgame may be to vastly increase the numbers of people diagnosed with mental health issues.
    Why? There is a lot of money to be made in campaigning for mental health (As with any other issue, smoking, salt, soda pop etc). Also, Big Pharma make a fortune selling drugs to combat mental health problems and they seem to have their funding fingers in a few pies these days.

    After all, you wouldn't want to be diagnosed with a mental disorder and buy Big Pharma drugs simply because you were lonely, if your impression of mental health was based on Silence of the Lambs.
    You may change you mind though if mental health was something that everyone had and everyone bought drugs to cure.
