Critical Psychiatry

  • Ban Shock - opposing views on shock therapy.

  • Lunatics' Liberation Front - information network whose main subject is alternatives to psychiatry.

  • Psychiatry Destroys Minds - Magazine published by Citizens Commission on Human Rights(CCHR) on the history and destructive nature of shock treatment.

  • Sick Mind Fraud an Anti-psychiatry Web Page - The problem with the mental health service attitude concerning the treatment of disturbed persons, is that many doctors have the attitude that they are dealing with "wrong people" and not that they are dealing with damaged people who have had wrongs done to them. Some damaged people also commit wrongs but this is a different issue.

  • Stopshrinks Org! - Mainstream mental "therapy" is no magic carpet ride. Those who employ and profit from this system use measures subtler than mere brooms [but with the same effect] to corner their living commodies for permanent tiering as the underclass.

  • The Antipsychiatry Coalition - The Antipsychiatry Coalition is a nonprofit volunteer group consisting of people who feel we have been harmed by psychiatry - and of our supporters.

  • What is Critical Psychiatry Critical psychiatry is part academic, part practical. Theoretically it is influenced by critical philosophical and political theories, and it has three elements. It challenges the dominance of clinical neuroscience in psychiatry (but does not exclude it); it introduces a strong ethical perspective on psychiatric knowledge and practice; it politicizes mental health issues. 6 Essays.

  • What would Adolf Meyer have thought of  the Neo-Krapelinian Approach? - Because of the problem of diagnostic unreliability in psychiatry, there has been a trend over recent years to create explicit diagnostic criteria, such as the Research Diagnostic Criteria and DSM-III. This movement has been called neo-Kraepelinian (Klerman, 1978) as it promotes many of the ideas associated with the views of Kraepelin, regarded as the founder of modern psychiatry. It favours a biological approach and arose partially as a response to attacks on the "medical model" in psychiatry.
