Dear Professors of Psychiatry,
Universidad del Valle, Cali, Colombia.
Your diagnosis has been debunked.(1)
Please read this post imagining my voice as a very soft whisper.(2)
I would like to quote again the following excerpt:
“On first glance, political abuse of psychiatry appears to represent a straightforward and uncomplicated story: the deployment of medicine as an instrument of repression. Psychiatric incarceration of mentally healthy people is uniformly understood to be a particularly pernicious form of repression, because it uses the powerful modalities of medicine as tools of punishment, and it compounds a deep affront to human rights with deception and fraud. Doctors who allow themselves to be used in this way (certainly as collaborators, but even as victims of intimidation) betray the trust of society and breach their most basic ethical obligations as professionals.”
Could we begin to talk about what I wrote just hours before being silenced by coercion into psychiatric treatment?
