Thanks for your comments. I think the problem is very complicated. Yes, forced treatment should be outlawed, but I don’t agree with you that psychotherapy is what gets people hooked and that most helping professionals are con artists. I believe that the majority of helping professionals have good intentions. Unfortunately, they just don’t realize that what they are doing causes more harm than good. I think the teaching, training , schooling is the biggest part of the problem of why the helping profession is in such a mess. Just like most young new parents don’t intend to mess up their kids. They just have no clue about good parenting. Our whole system needs changing for sure and that mostly means teaching people that there is no such thing as mental illness and taking away power from psychiatrists !
