Talking Back to Psychiatry

Linda Morrison brings the voices and issues of a little-known, complex social movement to the attention of sociologists, mental health professionals, and the general public. The members of this social movement work to gain voice for their own experience, to raise consciousness of injustice and inequality, to expose the darker side of psychiatry, and to promote alternatives for people in emotional distress. "Taking Back to Psychiatry" explores the movement's history, it's complex membership, it's strategies and goals, and the varied response it has received from psychiatry, policy makers, and the public at large.
