One of the issues I’ve been writing about over the past twenty years has centred on people’s experiences of psychiatric detentions, civil commitment, and forced psychiatric treatment. Yet even I was shocked and staggered by many of the stories I heard and things I learned during the course of researching my forthcoming book on these topics. Even I had little sense of the true scope and scale of how psychiatric powers are increasingly used to help “manage” and police people, institutions, and society. The book is scheduled to be released by BenBella Books in the fall of 2022. If you’d like to stay abreast of developments over the next few months leading up to its release, please sign up for my newsletter on my News & Blog page, or follow me on Facebook or Twitter.
