I’ve recently come across an October 2012 article by Ted Chabasinski. It’s on Mad in America and it’s called: Our Task Is to Take Away the Power of Psychiatry.
Ted tells us that he was was subjected to electric shock “treatment” when he was six years old. You can see a brief bio here.
Here are some quotes from the October 2012 article:
“Those who benefit from the way things are now won’t give up their money and power without a huge fight.”
“I should note here that the campaigns against so-called ‘stigma’ by groups like NAMI, when studied, showed that they actually made public attitudes toward us even worse.”
“At bottom, psychiatric power is based on what is essentially a religious faith in psychiatry. People believe in the ‘miracles’ of psychiatry in spite of the complete lack of factual basis for these beliefs.”
“We have been attacked and damaged by one of the most evil institutions in this society.”
Ted writes with honesty and conviction. Please take a look, and pass it along.
