I advocate for people who have psychiatric diagnoses. Specifically, I advocate for Informed Consent for those who get mental health treatment. Equally important, I advocate for the right to fufuse psychiatric diagnosis and treatment. The use of coercion and court ordered psychiatric treatment violates an individual's human rights. In the United States, many people who are given a psychiatric diagnosis have their Constitutional Rights to Procedural and Substantive Due Process of Law violated. Individual Rights are not preserved, and are rarely defended when Court Orders for involuntary psychiatric treatment are sought.
In Washington State, Court Ordered individuals lose their 2nd Amendment Rights for life and are entered into a tracking system when Court Ordered to involuntary psychiatric treatment.
My intent when I started writing my blog, Involuntary Transformation, was to share my family's experiences with the public mental health system as a way to warn others of the inherent risks they face with psychiatric diagnosis and treatment. I write about my family's experiences, and the standard practices used in the public mental health and social service systems both historically and in the present. I share how my youngest son, Isaac's psychiatric treatment traumatized him more often than not; ultimately psychiatric treatment caused profound iatrogenic, or physician induced, cognitive and neurological injuries; injuries that disabled my precious son before he was an adult.
Mental Health Transformation is happening--for some it is too slow in occurring--for others, it is an Involuntary Transformationf.
