Green Cell

From my 2017 archives. Forlorn tiny inmate bedroom cell at Z Ward, where the criminally insane of Adelaide were locked back in 1885. The criteria for being an inmate was having committed a crime and posing a danger to others and/or themselves due to insanity.

I currently work at a non-profit organisation that provides support service to the intellectually disabled. We have come a very long way since the days of Z Ward. Today the Australian National Disability Insurance Scheme promotes individual rights to freedom of expression, self-determination and decision-making, and actively prevents abuse, harm, neglect and violence. This is further enforced by the NDIS Quality and Safeguards Commission.
