KontraBar: MAD PRIDE info night
Thu 13 September @ 8:00 PM - 1:00 AM
Why do some people become mentally ill, while others do not? Before we consider answering that question, what does it even mean to be ‘mentally ill’? While medicine can answer that question, their answer is contrived and provides little insight.
Bauke, member of Mad Pride Nederland and survivor of behaviorist treatment, will try to answer these questions based on her personal experiences and research into this topic. She will explain why popular treatments are scientifically proven to be effective, yet at the same time drive patients to suicide. At the end she will talk about some forms of torture that the Dutch government applies under the guise of mental health care.
Afterwards there will be plenty of time for discussion, to ask questions and talk about personal experiences. Karlijn, from Spreekuur89 , will also be there.
