Re-Threading Madness

ReThread­ing Mad­ness presents Part 2 of our inter­view with Rob Wipond about his book Your Con­sent is Not Required: The Rise in Psy­chi­atric Deten­tions, Forced Treat­ment, and Abu­sive Guardianships.

Berna­dine and Rob dis­cuss (among oth­er things) how the psy­chi­atric indus­try is being used to pun­ish whistle­blow­ers, polit­i­cal advo­cates, and with­in our dai­ly lives with dis­grun­tled employ­ers and unhap­py spous­es. A men­tal health well­ness call can too eas­i­ly result in invol­un­tary com­mit­ments and being drugged even for the sanist among us. And, then that com­mit­ment how­ev­er wrong becomes a stain on the per­son­’s record and can impact him long after.
