user led mental health groups promoting big pharma - a big no! no!

This week I received an E-bulletin from a user led mental health group in Scotland that promoted the work of two big pharma companies F Hoffman-La Roche (operating income £10billion) and GlaxoSmithKlein (operating income £7billion). 

I shouldn't be surprised.  It's been one thing after another with this group, funded by government.  

Ignorance is no excuse when it's about drug companies who make fortunes out of psychiatric drugs that can be forced into mental patients and cause long term chronicity. 

A mental health user group that is just another arm of the government does nothing for the cause of mental health service users and survivors of psychiatry.  My plea to them is get wise and stop colluding with the powers that be. 

Scotland needs to hear the critical voices of mental health service users and survivors of psychiatry.  Big pharma gets enough press and money.  Don't be dancing to their tune.
