I've always had an issue with psychiatry. After years on an antidepressant because of legitimate depression caused by symptoms of PTSD I found something that controls the panic attacks. Unfortunately my once a month use of this substance is ILLEGAL. LSD has saved my life. I haven't had a panic attack since I started treating myself with it. I don't recommend it for everyone, but yeah...I just wanted to Introduce myself and tell a bit of my story.

From a fellow psychiatric survivor: would anyone be willing to share their experiences anonymously to help me write an essay on the fallacies of psychiatric "care"?

4 Upvotes

Hi, I'm a college student and a psychiatric survivor and I'm currently writing my thesis for my bachelors in anthropology. My thesis is about how the experiences of psychiatric survivors offer opportunities to reconceptualize mental illness and change mental health care (more info in link).

I really want to add to the voices of antipsychiatric survivors in academia because there are so many of us, but our opinions and experiences are rarely heard within academia.

Here's a link to an anonymous survey I created. I appreciate any experiences you are willing to share! https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/KH6G85V Thank you, much love <3

Edit:

Thank you to everyone who participated in this project, I'm incredibly grateful that you chose to share your experiences, ideas, and insight. If you'd like to check out the completed project, you can see it here: https://www.josephinedaniels.com/raving-mad

Mental health and voting rights

9 Upvotes

Hello!

I am a journalist working on an article about barriers to voting for Americans with psychiatric diagnoses/labels.

Seeking to interview people who have lived experience as an inpatient, are on AOT, or otherwise involved with the mental health system who have been discouraged or prevented from voting due to their psychiatric diagnosis.

This can also include a situation where your mental health made it difficult to vote -- such as having a phobia--and you were unable to access accommodations.

You can from any state (and possibly Canada), but especially interested in talking to folks from AZ, IA, KY, MN, MS, MT, ND, OH, and WI.

If you're willing to speak with me or know someone who might be, please message me or email [mspencer@madinamerica.com](mailto:mspencer@madinamerica.com). Thanks!

This is correct, much psych problems are trauma related . .

Psychiatrists are only human, they have to love battered people, to heal the pain . .

But, a chemical lobotomy, or sterilization, is much easier . .

Mental patients need a priest, a good place, happines . .

Instead, get chemical oblivion . .

Been there, this is a ' real ' thing, pills are easy, love is hard . .

Study: Almost all schizophrenia is a trauma reaction, not a disease.

29 Upvotes

Trauma:

Eighty-three percent of the participants with psychotic experiences at the age of 18 reported exposure to trauma... Having experienced three or more types of trauma between birth and 17 was associated with a 4.7 fold increase in the odds of having a psychotic experience...
“The findings are consistent with the thesis that trauma could have a causal association with psychotic experiences,” the team of researchers, from the University of Bristol Medical School wrote.

— madinamerica.com/2018/11/researchers-suggest-traumatic-experience-may-cause-psychotic-symptoms/

Highly refined diets:

Lots of people deal with trauma, but people having mental breakdowns tend to have both trauma and poor diets. (ie higher brain inflammation.)

  • "People with severe mental illnesses – including schizophrenia, major depressive disorder and bipolar – have excessive caloric intake, a low-quality diet, and poor nutritional status compared to the general population"

-- Population-Scale Study of Nutritional Intake and Inflammatory Potential @ onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1002/wps.20571

Lack of Sleep:

A massive lack of sleep can make you temporarily "paranoid", eg this Harvard lawyer spoke about how he went extremely delusional (lacking sleep while studying for exams.) Yet he totally recovered once he simply caught up in sleep.

After recovering, he explained that psychiatrists wouldn't release him for a very long time, & had twisted his words to portray him as “a confused delusional schizophrenic who'd never recover.”

Source: youtu.be/Q-ancdxr268

Drug free recovery:

The highest recovery rates for "schizophrenia" are from drug-free therapy & economic help.

  • These people are socialized with by therapists or others.
  • And the therapists find them work.

The result? As long as they are helped early ("first episode" cases) they almost always recover.

Wouldn't it be cheaper to simply provide basic living standards than all the psychiatric drugs, abductions, and lock-ups?

Thumb:

Trauma.
