2018 Virtual Counter-Conference of the American Psychiatric Association

Opposing force, coercion, and lies in psychiatry.

Jim Flannery

I am a firm believer in scientific research and am no stranger to involuntary psychiatric treatment. I strongly oppose the psychiatric system and its use of lies, force, and coercion. As part of the 2018 APA Worldwide Protest, I organized and ran a counter-conference, interviewing several psychiatric survivors, alternative health professionals, a renowned journalist, and a prominent attorney about the injustices of the psychiatric system.
