Foundations of the Critical Psychiatry Network

I’ve mentioned before (eg. see previous post) my article on ‘Twenty years of the Critical Psychiatry Network’ (CPN). Key CPN members have written a chapter in a forthcoming book on ‘The emergence of the UK Critical Psychiatry Network’.

As the chapter says, the issues that brought CPN together still remain. To quote from it, “Psychiatry does not always make decisions in the best interests of patients, yet it presents itself as though it does, therefore avoiding necessary political and democratic scrutiny”.
