For the past few months, Mental Health Europe has met and discussed with mental health professionals as well as users/(ex)users of mental health services about the notion of recovery from mental health problems. We are very grateful for their answers since the main objective of this video is to raise awareness of the possibility of recovery from mental health.

I do want to thank the Europeans for moving to get the message of “recovery” on the internet, since today’s US “mental health” “professionals” harbor “odd delusions” that their made up, and scientifically invalid and unreliable, DSM stigmatizations are “lifelong, incurable, genetic mental illnesses.”
My “recovery” was the result of being weaned off the “bipolar” drug cocktails. Since today’s psychiatric industry’s current “bipolar” drug cocktail recommendations are known to make a person “mad as a hatter,” via anticholinergic toxidrome. And anticholinergic toxidrome is not “bipolar,” it is a known drug interaction induced illness, not a “lifelong, incurable, genetic mental illness.”
I do so hope the US doctors will change their “bipolar’ drug recommendations soon. Since creating “psychosis” in people with drugs, for profit, is not ethical or acceptable human behavior.
