Maybe because I am approaching pension age, I have been thinking about the impact of critical psychiatry on practice. There seems to be little shift in mainstream biomedical bias, which tends to ignore any challenge to its ap...

Read my books and that will show you modern psychiatry at its "best" dripping with sarcasm... And the abuse continues for many victims.

An intriguing quote in this book puts the secrets of the Levin family tragedy in perspective: "Secrets are like stars. They blaze inside the heart and ultimately could be explosive. But there are two types of secrets. Small...

First posted July 19, 2011 but the post was high-jacked and I am re-posting here verbatim.  "Is there no virtue among us? If there be not, we are in a wretched situation. No theoretical checks -- no form of government c...

The President-elect of the APA, Jeffrey Lieberman, needs to know the loss of public trust in psychiatry is a direct result of the lack of scientific research standards and lack of ethical clinical practice standards; i.e. the...

When one realizes that Human Rights crimes are legally mandated but it's called providing "effective medical treatment" to people with a diagnosis of schizophrenia, who don't know what's good for them (because they supposedly...

I'm a MadMother advocating for the Human Rights of people given a psychiatric diagnosis
Introduction
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--many will lose their lives after being deprived of their Human Rights due to psychiatric diagnosis and treatment; for many more, preserving the Human Rights and the human dignity of individuals with a psychiatric diagnosis will require an Involuntary Transformation.
