As a Catholic with lived experience of the need to question the psychiatric standards and practices that were once the basis of my “treatment”, I have thought for years now that the Catholic Church has a responsibility to take a stand on the issue of overuse and misuse of psychiatric medications and treatments. Too many people have been severely harmed. I would think there are philosophers and theologians in the church whose background equips them to know with one quick look that something is terribly wrong, and then hopefully to lend clarity to the discussion. Needless to say, I am overjoyed to see that this conference at the Vatican is happening. Wish I could be a fly on the wall.
