Thanks for replying. Over the decades, many, many psychiatric survivor led groups have been pursuing the goal: “Most obviously, if forced intervention were outlawed the entire system would collapse forthwith. . .” Before she died, Bonnie Burstow gave a talk that I found very helpful. Yes, she identified as “anti-psychiatry” but she encouraged folks for the same goals working well and positively together. There may be major differences, but she hoped we would hear each other in a civil way. There are many groups against coerced mental health. Yes, achieving that goal will take a long time and a lot of strength, as you said. But the goal will be achieved. The reason I note there are many groups over the years for this goal, is that sometimes an individual may not perfectly fit with all the goals in the group, or feel they are missing some goals. But we can work together anyway. For example, this whole project here is called “Mad In America.” Mad. If a person feels that word is so terribly horribly negative, I am glad they will work together anyway. Thanks again for your thoughts!
