Or so he told me when we used to sit together at the Cross Party Group for Mental Health in Scottish Parliament.

Strapline: Dr Donald Lyons 'Know your rights, use your rights' in Bipolar Scotland newsletter - stuff and nonsense
It's a farce. For Bipolar Scotland to promote this rubbish is really upsetting to me as a mother, picking up the pieces after dehumanising psychiatric treatment. You are insulting my intelligence and my membership of your organisation.
Dr Lyons ends by saying that the mentally ill have recourse to justice, to report matters to the police. The problem with this, Dr Lyons, is that people who have been abused by psychiatry and receive mental disorder diagnoses are in no fit state to take a case to court. They are not well enough to do so. Although some do try and still get nowhere (Claire Muir, Dumbarton).
