> 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.

Excellent, how something plays out when applied to your own life is an I-statement.

> I guess my problem with the anti-psychiatry movement is that they don't seem to take madness seriously.

But that's about them again, not you. Saying they don't take something seriously could lead them to feel put down. Could you please rephrase that again? Thanks for working with me on this,
