Myth of the Chemical Cure by Joanna Moncrieff

Zoom in to this image and read text description

Currently I am in a transitional stage of development. With the help of my advocate I have changed from depot injections to oral medication. I am finding this very challenging.

In this I have been influenced by Dr. Joanna Moncrieff, author of The Myth of the Chemical Cure, and Dr Richard Bentall, author of Madness Explained.

Also, I have started to write a book with the help of art therapist Andrea Heath. I am working on a new project, "USA, a manifesto, a user-survivor agenda", which I hope to release soon.

I should appreciate the input of others who have experimented with their medication.
