|Mad Pride Ireland|
This is so much more about human rights than stigma; people who live with the normality of madness are second class citizens because of the present legal system in Ireland. The mad community can be locked up without trial forced treated and forced medicated. No branch of medicine should demand the protection of mental health acts in order to force treat its patients. The common law is to protect both doctor and patient, we the mad community demand the protection of the common law just like any other citizen, none of this is rocket science.
