Bastille Day, July 14th
Saturday, May 30, 2009  6:54:00 AM

by R. Burrow

THIS IS SOMEWHAT EXTREME. But although there is no "cure" for mental illness, it can be "treated" successfully with medications, counseling, structure, for examples.

Please remember Bastille Day on July 14th, chosen by the mentally ill, or those so labeled, to represent the liberation of psychiatric patients and the abuses they are forced to endure.  On this day in France, mentally ill inmates were freed, as well as many other prisoners in The Bastille. It was the beginning of the French Revolution.  This Day also represents the protest of treatments that are harmful and unethical.  Abuses include experimental psychosurgeries and other forms of altering brain functioning and chemistry, the use of excessive and forced medicating, electroconvulsive thereapy (shock treatments), confinement to hospital units, beds, and small rooms, the use of restraints, and many other aspects of 'treatment' that rob us of our dignity and pride.

Link below, (and many more articles can be found regarding Bastille Day as representing freedom for the mentally ill).
