    Psychological disorders exist, anyone who says otherwise is in denial. You don't have to deny this reality in order to argue against involuntary treatment, but unfortunately people have been convinced it's a package deal when they are separate issues. Though of course denying psychological disorders exist makes it easier for people to say we should just let schizophrenics kill themselves even though they don't have full free will when they're not getting treatment and think they're the Easter Bunny.

    No, I mean an attitude and doctors' general behaviour, plus hundreds other reasons, which is just never ending list.

    A psychiatric institution (and psychiatry itself) is a cemetery for "living dead". Psychiatrists are just ghosts walking through a ward, unseen, unheard. And nurses do show up only when it's meds time. Drugs are only substitutes for missing doctors, it's all their work. You can shout, but nobody listens. That's why I am against psychiatry.

    about your friend. i'm sorry to hear that. maby that psycologist fucked him up. maybe he hasn't. maybe your friend would develop catatonic schizophrenia regardless to the drugs he took. unfortunaltey, maybe he wouldn't. all medical drugs have sideeffects. look at chemotheraphy for instance. etc...

    not all psychologists and psychiatrists are good, and not all of them know really what they are doing. in any job there is a big chance to be wrong, unfortunately in the case of psychiatrists being wrong fucks up peoples lives. i think that psychiatrists have a lack of empathy and feeling for human beings, but sometimes taking drugs is the only way. i've seen and talked to a lof of psychiatric patients, and many of them were really thankful for drugs such as haloperidol. one guy said that taking those drugs enabled him to think without hearing voices. if you have a good doctor, and if you get a good diagnosis, than psychiatry can help you. otherwise it can destroy your life. there's a big discussion on personality disorders right now. the new DSM (V) will have a different approach to personality disorders. i personaly don't agree with some diagnoses that exist. and i don't belive in normal (and so, abnormal). there is just - can you live with yourself or not.
