New Vision for Psychiatry

| Jim van Os | Madness Radio

What if psychiatry recognized that schizophrenia does not exist? How might diagnostic categories (left over from the asylum era) be replaced by spectrums of experience? What if services were oriented around individuals, not the statistical groups of "Evidence based" research? And could a new definition of health as empowerment, not the absence of disease symptoms, replace the mental health system as we know it?

Jim van Os, professor of Psychiatric Epidemiology at Maastricht University and member of the Royal Dutch Academy of Science with more than 700 publications, is one of the top one percent highly cited scientists in the world. His research combines with the experiential knowledge of people with lived experience of psychosis to envision a radically new direction for the mental health system.

Combat Survivours Peer Support Line- New Canadian

“If You're Hurting, We're Here to Listen”


This is not a government line. It is a PEER Support line, BY soldiers FOR soldiers.

(I hope they will put up a website with a private group talk board like psych survivours do, or create one with available resources...some of which are free. They may have to restrict SOME of their talk online to keep their controllers away but not all of it.)

About Me

If you decide to read this Site, you will find that I am approaching this problem of the psychiatrization of human beings from basically four different perspectives on it.

They are:

A.      From that of a former aid who was employed to work one to one with ‘clients’ inside a psychiatric hospital, through a health care agency.   
B.      As a member (in long standing) of various dysfunctional groups and from within a variety of dysfunctional relationships.

C.      As a targeted person ‘chosen’ for 'covert' assessment who has now had first hand experience of psychosis (‘decompensation’) and experienced  real, long term re-integration and recovery while being drug free since 1997. 

D.     As someone who has found out a great deal about what is going on in psychiatry in general and with the relationship with it in particular, as well as with whole communities which they now involve in ‘saving’ people, like it or not, who are all very much like me.                                                   

 I do hope this Website offers you some of the understanding you may be looking for. I also hope that it helps to make the experience from the ‘patient’ point of view, a view long suppressed, ignored, and psychiatrized, become a better understood REALITY for the reader, especially those readers like mental illness pros, friends and family who really don’t understand it now.

It is not so ‘complex’ that it cannot be understood if you take the time to look and listen. Very often, it is only made to appear ‘complex’ as a smokescreen used to conceal the perfectly obvious. It is too often the obvious that is not seen.

Paradoxically then, this site is about reframing ‘reality’ in more realistic terms.

Going Around in Dysfunctional Circles 

Infinite Looping the Dysfunctional Way

If you don't speak up about your mockers, ridiculers and abusers, you deserve what you get for failing to do so and not holding them accountable AND if you DO speak up, you deserve what you're getting for whining, bitching, complaining, and blaming (which means “to hold accountable”) those “others.”

Huh?...    Having trouble making sense of things are you?

It is very hard to make sense of the senseless. In fact, most often it is only the senseless who can manage to do that and usually THEY don't get labelled.


"If the human race survives, future men will, I suspect, look back on our enlightened epoch as a veritable Age of Darkness... They will see that what was considered 'schizophrenic' was one of the forms in which, often through quite ordinary people, the light began to break into our all-too-closed minds." 

Dr. R.D. Laing

Mission Statement :

This website has been created with three specific goals in mind.

A. To offer explanation, encouragement and psycho spiritual support to the psychiatrized and all others bent or broken by systemic dysfunction.

B. To help to awaken the mental illness industry to some very old, yet still resisted, truths.

C. To take back the right to speak in the first person about my experience and to offer ideas and practical help to others trying to do the same.

The One True Faith

The  One True Faith is the One to which ALL of humanity belongs without exception, or exclusion.

I am already a member of the “One” True Faith so there is nothing I need to join, as I am already joined and so is everyone else...even if they don't know it quite yet.

It is the faith with no name because ALL of the names for it are present within it, including atheism. THINK about it.

Of course we cannot brand this faith with no name AS the No Name faith because a grocery store has already registered no name brand as a brand name.

This is how the planet we live on now likes to think. We must transcend our group insanity....
