This is a book about psychiatric drugs written from a fresh perspective; that of people who have taken them. My interest in the subject stems from my own experience of being on psychiatric drugs and many years of discussing them with friends and colleagues in the mental health system survivor or service users’ movement. Much of the content of this book relies on people’s willingness to talk openly about their experiences, and in my working life as a trainer, writer, researcher and consultant on issues of concern to service users, I developed the principle of not asking people to share information I wasn’t prepared to share myself, so I will begin this introduction with a brief account of my own psychiatric drugs story.
