Rachel, congrats on finding your way out of the woods. Many haven’t. The whole message that “this is a lifetime problem that is only managed by drugs” is incredibly disempowering. Yes, my approach to get the message across is lower key. What I’ve found is that there are many people within mental health that see the poor outcomes they’re producing and want to find a better way. They feel constrained – not wanting to step too far outside of psychiatric orthodoxy lest they get ostracized from their career choice. A lower-keyed approach has allowed me bring the message to NAMI, the Psychiatric Rehabilitation Association and others, considered fairly mainstream psychiatry. I think we need a combination of approaches to advance a new mental health paradigm: the frontal assault of MIA and others, a lower key “expand the options of recovery” approach, a heavily research-based approach, a strongly emotional approach, and more. Different people respond to different approaches. The more we can push with a variety of approaches, with a variety of audiences, the better.
