"I and many others, probably much more than 50%, don't like to be forced in psychiatric settings and don't believe it "saved" our lives. We are not happy at having our agency taken away, our voices silenced and being labelled by psychiatry. Naming and shaming. "family history of" Justifying their course of action, taking away our reputation, saying that we have "lifelong mental illness". No we don't. It's the drugs that don't work not the person that's "treatment resistant".
I have never believed in the "mantra of mental illness". So I have always taken charge of my own mental health, when on psych drugs, and made a complete recovery, against the guidance of psychiatrists, telling them I was doing/had done so. Other folk tongue the drugs or stop taking them and don't tell, even if still getting the prescriptions. That's the reality. And that's why some folk get forcibly injected with psych drugs, even out in the "community". It's all about control and power.
My mother was on a 3wkly depixol injection until she died, aged 68 in 1998, after more than 25yrs of having to pull her pants down. There was no need for it. She didn't have mental illness, was an ordered person, a gentle woman, had a paid job, any mental health issues were way back in her life due to different stressors. And psychiatry treated this by lifelong drugging and humiliation. They gave her a schizophrenia label. It sat in her notes for ever, indelibly. I am not happy about it.
