  • You should be commended on your work and your intellectual honesty . I have a educational background in social science , humanities , social care and working with people with mental health problems . Whilst supporting people with mental health problems and talking with them about their experiences I became aware of the adverse effects the medical medical model of psychiatry had on their lives . I considered child and human development theory more appropriate . Ironically Iam currently recieving support from mental health services . This is due to me having suffered a number of adverse situations . The thing is the psychiatrist I saw maintains I have a chemical imbalance in the brain and has prescribed medication accordingly . Very frightening if you ask me evidently he views me as having an organic disease . We need more doctors like you and we need professionals who are willing to listen to and understand the experiences of the people they work with not label them with a disease .
