We are against the human rights violations and pharmaceutical corruption of psychiatry, as well as its inherently abusive purpose as a tool of social control.
While subjective experiences of suffering and altered states of consciousness are valid, DSM diagnoses arbitrarily group symptoms and claim biological basis with no evidence, thus asserting emotion is disease and thinking or behaving differently is abnormality.
Furthermore, prevailing treatments, such as psychiatric drugs, are damaging to the brain and body, and patients aren't given enough information to give informed consent to all risks.
Psychiatry's ability to detain without trial is a human rights violation, and forced drugging, confinement, and restraint are paramount to torture. We oppose violence, dehumanizing treatment, lack of (informed) consent, and medical corruption, all of which are, unfortunately, status quo for psychiatry today.
