Psychiatric Rights by Mark Vellucci M.A.
(Rites?):A Treatise on Involuntary Mental Hospitalization and Thomas Szasz

No critic rating

Waiting for minimum critic reviews


Involuntary mental hospitalization is a political act, based on the misguided need of the state to control its "undesirable" or "deviant" citizens. It has no place in a free society, as it is a violation of the fundamental rights to personal freedom and individual liberty. It is the purpose of this book to present arguments in favor of personal freedom and to rekindle a dialogue over an often too easily accepted set of practices. If this work causes you to raise issues and objections or creates an emotional reaction, it has served its purpose.
