Bernadine chats with Irit Shimrat, author, editor, advocate and agitator around her experience of being psychiatrized. Irit has a long history being involved in and critiquing the mental health field - although she would label that differently: health being the misnomer. We talk language, consequences to people's lives from being psychiatrized, and the danger of psychiatry in our lives. Even if you don't agree with anti-psychiatry, this is a conversation to listen to just to educate yourself on what you are really supporting or fighting against. Irit also offers her invaluable advice on how to protect yourself if you find police at your door on a wellness check or if you have been involuntarily detained in a psych ward. Interesting conversation.

Hi Eva, Sorry I just saw these well considered comments. It is true that I am not finding people who are exclaiming the virtues of psychiatry. It has become a sad state of affairs. Thank you for your advice here.

OOPs, it sent before I could finish. I hope that psychiatrized or people that need emotional crutches, are able to gather a few people for themselves that can help them stay out of the far reaches of the false paradigm's harms. Which really means, do not share your life story, or your family history with anyone. Your information is not safe with anyone that has more power than you do.

This was a FABULOUS interview. Irit's message is bang on, and much needed to be heard. Not just the vast public out there, who for the most part find it to difficult to think, or are even interested, beyond recommending psychiatry to people in need...but it really needs to be heard by the psychiatrized, or those who might think they "need" "mental help". "health" is NOT to be found in psychiatry, and for the most part not in the real medical industry, since EVERY medical person has found it convenient to use the wastebin of psychiatry. Bottom line is, if you have a problem, it should not exist. A delusional concept.
