March 6, 2023: Your Consent is Not Required, Part 2
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.
