Dear Dr. Healy,
Thank you for writing and sharing this post.
I would like to share my own story about pharmaceutical rape (i.e., forced administration of midazolam and haloperidol + involuntary placement + coercion into psychiatric treatment).(1,2)
I don’t know if you are already aware that I am also a critic of the drug industry because I recently (about 1 year) started to engage in public debates via my blog, journals, and social media. I still have a lot to learn from other influencers like you Peter and other academics of high respectability. Nonetheless, I don’t know if anyone of you have already experienced coercion into psychiatric treatment as a method (a desperate resource indeed) to silence your critical opinions about the drug industry, including (but not restricted to) psychiatric drugs.(3)
Finally, I would like to mention that my research data independently supports Peter statement regarding psychiatric drugs.(4)
