If you decide to read this Site, you will find that I am approaching this problem of the psychiatrization of human beings from basically four different perspectives on it.
A. From that of a former aid who was employed to work one to one with ‘clients’ inside a psychiatric hospital, through a health care agency.
B. As a member (in long standing) of various dysfunctional groups and from within a variety of dysfunctional relationships.
C. As a targeted person ‘chosen’ for 'covert' assessment who has now had first hand experience of psychosis (‘decompensation’) and experienced real, long term re-integration and recovery while being drug free since 1997.
D. As someone who has found out a great deal about what is going on in psychiatry in general and with the relationship with it in particular, as well as with whole communities which they now involve in ‘saving’ people, like it or not, who are all very much like me.
I do hope this Website offers you some of the understanding you may be looking for. I also hope that it helps to make the experience from the ‘patient’ point of view, a view long suppressed, ignored, and psychiatrized, become a better understood REALITY for the reader, especially those readers like mental illness pros, friends and family who really don’t understand it now.
It is not so ‘complex’ that it cannot be understood if you take the time to look and listen. Very often, it is only made to appear ‘complex’ as a smokescreen used to conceal the perfectly obvious. It is too often the obvious that is not seen.
Paradoxically then, this site is about reframing ‘reality’ in more realistic terms.
