Alternatives Beyond Psychiatry
The book highlights alternatives beyond psychiatry, current possibilities for self-help for individuals experiencing madness or depression, and strategies toward implementing humane treatment. Sixty-one authors - (ex-) users and survivors of psychiatry, therapists, psychiatrists, lawyers, social scientists and relatives from all five continents - report about their alternative work, their objectives and successes, and their individual and collective experiences. +++ These are the main questions addressed by the 61 authors from all five continents: What helps me if I go mad or depressive? How can I find trustworthy help for a relative or a friend in need? How can I protect myself from coercive treatment? As a family member or friend, how can I help? What should I do if I can no longer bear to work in the mental health field? What are the alternatives to psychiatry? How can I get involved in creating alternatives? Assuming psychiatry would be abolished: what do you propose. instead of psychiatry?
