  • Meremortal, any chance I could talk you out of using the word “alternatives”? The term implies that psychiatry is the standard and everything else is an “alternative.” Such as human support. But psychiatry does not provide human support, in fact what it does is often the complete opposite. So why should providing TRUE support be considered an “alternative to psychiatry,” rather than simply fulfilling people’s needs?? Doesn’t that give psychiatry too much credit?

    Anyway we don’t need to “replace this thing,” just abandon it.
