Every-one is more than any label they are given. labels can confine a person and a llabel can inhibit personal growth!

When we label, we exclude. When we label and exclude, we deny the humanity and dignity of each and every person.

Psychiatric Labels are only good for handles for the medical industry to hang their income calculations on. Stop the labeling and let us use the saved medicine money for natural, human, common sense approaches instead.

The systems are irrelevant, at times denigratory, totally medical profession centered and have become ridiiculously tortuous. Money for the writers eh? Like policies.

Wisdom is knowing how little we know and the more you learn the more you should be aware of it:-) The more specialised often forgot to look around:-

Because my beautiful young son's life has been catastrophically changed by what their "med's" have done to him - and he DIDN'T even have a "psychiatric diagnosis", and had NEVER acted against anyone in his life. Now, he has - 'irreparable' - tardive psychosis, and tardive diskinesia. The ugly truth is, that 'they' had to make him 'look' & 'act' like he belonged institutionalized, excessively - and unjustifiably - drugged, traumatized and tormented in the name of "mental health" for SEVEN...

Oh, and at TAXPAYERS EXPENSE? But these days, astonishingly, adversely impacting lives doesn't seem to apply to the current business model. They have destroyed a beautiful, and innocent person's life, to serve themselves. I know that sounds unbelievable, but the Truth does not lie. But they do!

Shannon it makes me sad to hear of and see what has happened over the years (also to my younger brother) because they did not take better options serious. Too simple to be true was often the reaction.In the Netherlands it was rest regulation and medication. I believe in comfort safety and continuation. Hope I have translated rightly:-) Luckily the families are allowed to be more involved but why did saving government money have to be the strongest motivation?

They make you feel small like I you not worth much just because you are different. They put you down. This is not help. They should empower you so you can grow and follow your own truth and path.

Estoy de acuerdo. Es momento de introducir cambios de fondo en las prácticas psiquiátricas, indisciplinarlas, atenuar el estigma y retomar la conversación como herramienta básica en psicoterapia para abordar el sufrimiento y su contexto. Psiquiatra. Bogotá - Colombia.

No hay ninguna razón para seguir procedimientos que a la larga destruyen la vida de personas con un desequilibrio temporal, que no ahondan en problemas sociales o familiares y que se basan en medicamentos con unos efectos secundarios devastadores a la larga, además de ser absolutamente adictivos y provocar un efecto rebote en los síntomas, además de provocar síntomas nuevos y alarmantes en gran parte de los casos, con los que no llega el paciente en un principio.

No hay ninguna razón para seguir procedimientos que a la larga destruyen la vida de personas con un desequilibrio temporal, que no ahondan en problemas sociales o familiares y que se basan en medicamentos con unos efectos secundarios devastadores a la larga, además de ser absolutamente adictivos y provocar un efecto rebote en los síntomas, además de provocar síntomas nuevos y alarmantes en gran parte de los casos, con los que no llega el paciente en un principio. Terminemos con esa manera de tratar y diagnosticar porque si se sigue en ella estamos hablando de una negligencia constante. No me extenderé más en las razones, pero basta de jugar con la salud de los seres humanos que no pueden defenderse.
