“I’m pleased that you found your way to my Collection, but far more important than the objects displayed are the feelings that drove me to make or acquire them. For that you must understand my work as a psychiatrist. My refusal to believe that emotional problems could be “diagnosed” and “treated” by drugs; my belief that forced treatment would drive away the very people most in need of help; the heartbreak, injustice and outright fraud that comes with “forensic” psychiatry— the false claim that psychiatry can unlock the true meaning of human behavior and actions – those are the things that lie behind the objects in my Collection.
Please click on the video before you, as I introduce “Psychiatry and Society,” a series of Youtube posts aimed primarily at the general public. I hope with these videos to add my weight to a growing movement that helps the general public understand the harms being perpetrated by our current “mental health system,” in collaboration with Government and Big Pharma. I also want to help you understand how our society’s readiness to turn to Psychiatry in the courts brings injustice and pseudoscience.
Then, I hope you keep coming back to the Collection and enjoy the objects displayed. I truly believe, and hope you will consider the possibility, that both the objects themselves and the stories connected with them, contain a message that will inspire you to pursue your interests with passion and confidence.
You may have arrived here just looking for fun, but I want you as a student. We have a lot of work to do.
