  • Hey, oldhead. I’m the author of the 2nd link you commented on a while back (about the mental health movement, as it has come to be called). You seemed to take issue with how I presented the MHM. I tried to be nuanced and non-biased by providing a sociological analysis of the history and consequences of different aspects of the MHM, though I support deinstitutionalization.
    As an advocate, how can I better present these issues and stand up for the rights of people stigmatized with labels of mental illness? My main intention is to support “the eradication of stigma surrounding mental illnesses,” but I need feedback like yours to ensure I frame these issues correctly.
    Thanks!
