There's room for some healthy debate about the use of psychiatric drugs...

As much injury as they cause, there may still be a role for them to play in an acute crisis, with adults, with informed consent, in small amounts, for limited periods of time, etc.

Unfortunately, we do not have enough non-drug settings for people to get help in a crisis.

ECT is a different story.
ECT has no place in a civil society.

This quote pretty much says it all:

"Psychiatry is to medicine what astrology is to astronomy." - Leonard Roy Frank, ECT Survivor

Thanks for the post.
