I like your post a lot. There is a lot of evidence that correlates the magnitude of benefit a patient ascribes to his treatment depends on their confidence in their doctor and in the treatment to make them well. So casting aspersions, like you said, benefits no one, regardless of which side of the fence you sit on.
Also, violette, thanks for sharing your story. I'm really sorry about your parents. I watched my mom's twin spiral into depression and alcoholism, and it was a terrible sigh, to see someone in denial, so stupid and beaten. I never knew my father, but I know that he is alive, thank god.
Violette, huxley, here is a radio interview of Steven Morgan, he is someone who really inspires me : http://www.madnessradio.net/madness-radio-reinventing-bipolar-steven-morgan. He plainly speaks to the issue.
