Thanks for this informative piece, Jessica. Unfortunately, I am quite disappointed in what appears to have been the main goal of the survey: to simply add a little context and different words to the diagnostic labels which does nothing to expose the arbitrary and stigmatizing labels – many, if not all, of which should not even be considered illnesses but simply part of the spectrum of the human condition that we all share. I recall reading a collection of articles by clinicians in a tome titled, “Traumatic Stress Disorder,” many years ago. Many of the authors were European. There are two things stated in that book that still stand out in my mind. The first is that the European medical community, (at least at that time,) regarded “98% of all so-called mental illnesses are symptoms of PTSD.” The second, which I found both funny and tragic, was that the only reason Americans call PTSD “post”-traumatic is because the only times we have ever even looked at it was post- WWI, WWII, Korean War, and Vietnam. Though, I think since the 9/11, the Iraq-Afghanistan wars there has been a definite sea change. In any case, I’m disturbed by this survey. It seems, at least on the surface, to be inviting service users to collude in the labeling of people – just with more “acceptable” and easy to understand language. I would denounce it entirely if it weren’t for the recent release of the WHO’s QualityRights initiative. I can see they are seriously addressing the issues facing psychiatry today and I suspect, (or at least I hope,) this survey is a step in gently coaxing the anxious psychiatrists along. Regardless, “a change is gonna come”! Thanks again. It’s good to know so many scholars and professionals are concerned with the current state of affairs in this field.
