Mental health industry collaborates with damaging state welfare reforms (video) : 11th April 2018 : Denis Postle

by Julia Evans on April 11, 2018

Introduction by Julia Evans

I first met Denis in 1979 – we think – though neither of us have a clear recollection of this momentous occasion, at a day on catastrophe theory.

We reconnected when we found ourselves both on the same side resisting moves to implement the Government’s totally bonkers Mental Health Clinic, as designated in the Health Professions Order 2001.

The reason for this circulation is to announce Denis has updated his 2007 video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V8L7dCjflwU and below) on the New Savoy Conferences, as follows:

Mental health industry collaborates with damaging state welfare reforms : Denis Postle: Published on 11 Apr 2018 : Available here

(see https://www.newsavoypartnership.org for information about this powerful lobby group).

At the end of this message are links to various representations into Government I have made since 2005.

The second in a series of videos about the psyCommons looks at how the basic human capacity to resolve and survive the ordinary difficulties of daily life through family, friends and local communities, is undermined by the psychological professions, along with their pharma allies.

Around 75% of the UK population have no need of ‘mental health’ services. What is it they know and do that keeps them psysavvy? The psyCommons examines the ordinary wisdom and shared power hidden from us by the mental illness industries and the medicalization of ordinary human distress.

A talk by Janet Low

Evidence-based practice is a policy maker’s dream, a wish of what science would be: totally free from human contamination, utterly beyond question, and absolutely clean.
