On ReThreading Madness Bernadine and Rob Wipond continue their discussion of his latest book, "Your Consent Is Not Required: The Rise in Psychiatric Detentions, Forced Treatment and Abusive Guardianships". In this part, they discuss how the psychiatric industry is being used to punish whistleblowers, political advocates, and within our daily lives with disgruntled employers and unhappy spouses. A mental health wellness call can too easily result in involuntary commitments and being drugged even for the sanist among us. And, then that commitment however wrong becomes a stain on the person's record and can impact him long after.

From press release: "There's a common misconception that, due to asylum closures, only 'dangerous' people get committed now. But forced psychiatric interventions today occur in thousands of public and priviate hospitals and also in group and long-term care facilities, troubled-teen and residential treatment centres, and even in people's own homes under outpatient commitment order. Intended to 'help', for many people the experiences are terrifying, traumatizing, and permanently damaging."

Rob's research demonstrates not only the ways in which these forced detentions are the equivalent to torture, that there is no research demonstrating that they are helpful, and that they are indeed on the rise.

Bernadine and Rob list the ways in which you can protect yourself from a forced detention and, if it happens, how to help yourself get discharged.
