  • I haven’t read the 300 page WHO guidance report but have read Robert Whitaker’s summary and listened to Mad in America podcast interview with Michelle Funk.
    Did the report actually call out Psychiatry on its misappropriation of medical angnosogosia? Psychiatry’s “angnosogosia” reminds me of a joke John Read told: They say they have a drug that will make you agree with your psychiatrist.

    I think the WHO’s guidance report officially ends blaming the failed mental health system on the least powerful people in it. That seems to be the trend which I see in different areas, not just “mental health,” if it doesn’t get censored.

    According to Michelle Funk, the work has just begun and with demand from countries. I can remember when we couldn’t have these conversations and barely among ourselves much less a paradigm shift with trainings in different countries and proposed policy and legal changes.
