These two young men are being housed at a government psychiatric facility in isolation cells for years at a time under the guise of "treatments" and "risk management" strategies and it's all because they have Autism/Aspergers Syndrome. They are also denied any support or treatments from autism experts. If a parent did this to their child in the community they would be arrested! Ben and Aaron are being denied their basic human rights and are living in isolation and torturous conditions with no end in sight. Many people with more difficult behaviours are currently functioning very well and safely in the community. Help give Ben and Aaron a chance at life. Thank you.
