APRIL charity's founder Millie joined a Bed Push demonstration organised by psychologist Rufus May, We pushed a hospital bed from a hospital in Tottenham to Kite Hill in London. The opportunity for people to express their opinions about the current psychiatric system was recorded. This young woman has experienced and researched the system and her opinions are valuable and should be heard.

The demonstration was a protest and memorial for Daniel Galvin who suddenly died aged 29 after weight gain among other adverse reaction symptoms to psychotropic medicine he was prescribed.

YOUR VIEWS CAN BE HEARD TOO! The British Medical Association have agreed to review opinions about the mental health treatment in our psychiatric system in the UK. Go to cepuk.org/news/ for more information.

Psychologists, doctors, psychiatrists and patients have found ways to improve outcomes for patients in the psychiatric system. We have included videos of interviews with psychologist Rufus May, psychiatrist Dr Bob Johnson and other health professionals as well as former patients and carers.

Due to reliance in our current system on pharmaceutical treatment with psychotropic drugs, outcomes for many people may be addiction to prescribed drugs, weight gain, cardiac problems, dulled thinking, end of creativity and lost careers.

Many have benefited and reflect on their experiences in these videos if they have found alternative ways than reliance on pharmaceutical drugs to help themselves or family members.

Please also refer to the Council for Evidence Based Psychiatry cepuk.org for more video interviews with among other, Dr Joanna Moncreiff the psychiatrist author of The Myth of the Chemical Cure.
