Re-Threading Madness

This is Part 2 of Bernadine’s chat.s with Irit Shim­rat, author, edi­tor, advo­cate and agi­ta­tor around her expe­ri­ence of being psy­chi­a­trized. Irit has a long his­to­ry being involved in and cri­tiquing the men­tal health field — although she would label that dif­fer­ent­ly: health being the mis­nomer. We address the prob­lems of lan­guage, the shad­ow reports she is a part of writ­ing for the Con­ven­tion of the Rights of Per­sons with Dis­abil­i­ties, and why she feels she is the luck­i­est per­son in the world.
