OK, I think what I'm trying to say is that although I certainly see some of the anti-psychiatry viewpoint, it hasn't played out very well when applied to my own life. This obviously doesn't mean that everyone labeled with a mental illness does, in fact, need the prescribed treatment(s), but it does lead to me feel that I need to listen to what the "psychiatric establishment" has to say, reflect upon it, see how it lines up with my own values, and then act as I see fit.

I guess my problem with the anti-psychiatry movement is that they don't seem to take madness seriously. They romanticize it or minimize it, but they don't seem (just from what I've read) to really take into consideration how terrible madness can be.
