Abstract

The author, a long-time human rights activist, explains why he calls himself an anti-psychiatry activist rather than a "mental health consumer." He believes that the latter term is nonsensical in the current mental health system, characterized by lack of consumer choice and an explosion of involuntary interventions. He is a member of People Against Coercive Treatment and the Ontario Coalition Against Poverty.
