  Dead in Psychiatric Care  
  A group of family and friends of young people who have died while in psychiatric treatment have fonded the association DŅd i psykiatrien. These families are left alone with their grief, loss and hopelessness. The association aims to create a forum for them to share their experiences and demand changes to the treatment modalities that led to the death of their loved ones.  
Memorial 15th July 2018 for the relatives
we lost in psychiatric care
Try to imagine, why many of the people who seek help in psychiatry - maybe just for a smaller thing, why they stay as users of public help for more or less the rest of their lives. Logically you might imagine that people after having received treatment would be OK and then subsequently go back to for example their job, but it is not so. WHY?
Could it be, that psychiatry for many people spoils their lives instead of helping them.

Psychiatry have to change as Human Rights Special rapporteur Dainius Puras has expressed by several occasions.  People should not be humiliated from the moment they enter a psychiatric ward.  They should be treated like human beings and not like inhumane diagnoses. The psychiatric personal don't talk with the patient, they talk to the patient.This way of treating people who seek help in psychiatry can only go wrong and it does!

Grinding the grain


The Dilemma of Psychiatry  

A documentary named: ‘The Dilemma of Psychiatry’ was shown on the Danish TV Channel 1 on 13th of May.
The documentary questions - why life expectancy for people who have psychiatric treatment is 20 to 25 years shorter than people who is not receiving treatment. The questions asked are among others: Is the psychotropics one of the reasons for the shorter life expectancy?
My dear Luise’s sad treatment story forms the framework for the broadcast. She died from the medication -no doubt about that - A famous pharmacologist expresses that he is sure that Luise died from the malmedication.

Psychiatry changed my lovely Luise

My dear Luise. She was so beautiful, so full of joy and wit and she was extremely funny. All that psychiatry manages to destroy. The psychiatrists could only see her as a person that was not right. At the beginning they were desperately looking for a diagnoses. No one could find an appropriate one. The first psychiatrist said that she was mentally retarded, the next said. NO on the contrary Luise is very intelligent. OK then one found out that she suffered from poor sense integration, so she was referred to sense integration exercise. Fine! Luise was looking forward to this exercise and so was I. But then a new 'specialist' said NO No Luise has hidden epilepsy and must have medication for that. Then Hell started. She got very affected by the strong anti-epileptica. She got aggressive and confused. So she got sedatives which made her even worse and then they started giving her antipsychotics which made her very ill and strange so now finally they could give her the diagnoses schizophrenia and give her a lot of anti psychotic medication which made her even more strange, and on top of it she had so many side effect that her poor body could not take any more. She died suddenly while walking around as she always did. She could not relaxe - Akathisia.
Look what psychotropics do to people

That is my lovely daughter Luise after having started on the horrible medication. Would any woman or man like to look like that? And on top of it all she had serious side effects. Her skeleton was affected the way that there started pouches for example on her fingers that now looked like witches finger. And her body looked liked an eighty year old lady, but she was only 30 years old. Many other problems she had and finally she died suddenly and unexpected.
