There is a long history of resistance to the idea of trauma in our culture. During WWI the British government banned all references to shell shock and insisted sufferers be treated like any other ill person. According to Bessel van der Kolk between 1947 and the Vietnam War there was no scholarly writing on the topic of trauma, and until recently the notion of complex PTSD was resisted by the medical community. What makes Trauma so unpalatable? Perhaps it has to do with the implication that we are responsible as a community for the mental health of others. When mental illness is a personal problem it is also a matter of personal responsibility. But centering mental Illness around trauma, particularly in early development makes it a matter of cause and effect, a social problem and implies a public health response. The ACE study showed that child abuse alone is responsible for 2/3 of all alcoholism, 3/4 of all suicide, domestic violence and IV drug use. All of which recreate the cycle of abuse for the next generation. (Van der Kolk, 2014). Raising awareness of how we participate in the mental health of others might be the most powerful advance we can make in combatting it. #mentalhealth #mentalillness #psychology #psychiatry #trauma #recovery #publichealth #wellness #healthandwellness #psychotherapy #therapy #therapist #childrenshealth #health #healing #medicine #community

This is my #hand It contains all of the #psychiatric #medication I'm taking today. None. None at all. This is the first day in years on which I will not have taken such drugs. See my post yesterday - with my hand holding the final dose for a little about the process of getting myself off meds wisely. The next few weeks may be hard with #withdrawal - I have had bad withdrawal symptoms at every step of getting off the pills and capsules. But withdrawal is not relapse no matter how it can feel that way. Withdrawal can be a right shit and I don't recommend it unless done carefully and with as much self care and support as possible and not until after seeking wise advice. As a start for reading I recommend Will Hall's Harm Reduction Guide for Coming off Psychiatric Medications, published by Icarus Project. There's a free download available. @theicarusproject Very helpful indeed. I'm very proud and #happy to have got to this day. It's been a massive challenge and I do have many diagnoses with another one probably coming - correctly - when I'm assessed over the next few weeks. But I believe I'm personally better off without the drugs and after much reading I am far more critical with psychiatry than I used to be. At the start of this year I didn't believe today would become possible. This post is not advice for anyone else. This is just about my life. #freedom #drugs #psychiatry #psychology #nodrugs #trazodone #pregabalin #antidepressants #antipsychotics #recovery #mentalhealth #mentalillness #mentalhealthawareness #dissociation #youcandoit #strength #health #possibilities #positivevibes #success #emptyhanded #Yay #brilliant #madness
