    Psychiatrists Have Issued A Historic Admission Of The Harm Done By Aversion Therapy

    https://www.buzzfeed.com/patrickstr...mission-of-the?utm_term=.mxYnBz5wq#.tsO8ZpqGd


    But still Wendy Burn has her head in sand and ignoring harm of psychotherapy to ME patients.

    Everyone should ask her on twitter why they have not apologised or even acknowledge the multiple harms and abuse by their past president Simon Weasley.

    Thanks to the tenacious MEMilitant for trying to engage but being ignored. :thumbsup:

    This this sounds so familiar to ME victims of RPsych abuse. Same tactics used.

    Good opportunity to ask on twitter where the apology is for thousands abused and harmed by Simon Wessely, Michael Sharpe and Peter White and the PACE trial.

    This sums it up.



    Our apology might come at least 40 years from now or around 2060.

    Who from us will be around to hear it. I think most of us will be dead!!

    So will Professor Dr Sir Regius Simon Wessely and his partners in crime.

    The journalist that wrote this article:



    By chance today I was reading:

    THE MENTAL HEALTH MOVEMENT: PERSECUTION OF PATIENTS?

    http://www.margaretwilliams.me/2003/mental-health-movement-persecution-of-patients-select-ctte.pdf

    Similarities are striking. Would be good to engage with Patrick and Wendy Burns over this for anyone on twitter.

    Great job by ME Militant






    I bet you $10 that ME Militant will be blocked for asking important and troubling questions for the RPscyh.

    Need others to step up if he does get blocked

    I'd have to disagree with you o the idea that ME Militant is doing a good job.

    What he or she is doing is the equivalent of bursting into a pub and shouting at the nearest person who was talking about something completely different.

    I share the view that this needs to be addressed, but spamming tweets at people with your own viewpoint is a) a great way to get blocked asap and b) a lovely way to further the narrative that ME patients are harassing militants.

    Literally every form of advocacy that I've been observed to be successful in this field has been by playing the game and trying to influence within it. Whether it's writing to parliament, making a film, or publishing articles in a newspaper. Not stuff like this, which gives those who are against us more fuel to the fire, and whose only audience is the converted.
