Summary

Grounded in my personal experience as a survivor of psychiatric violence, I take a historical approach to the recent development of norms that support a demand for reparations for psychiatric violence. I introduce the reader to the advocacy by the World Network of Users and Survivors of Psychiatry (WNUSP) that led to the establishment of norms in international law that require the abolition of forced psychiatric interventions, and discuss the confirmation by international human rights mechanisms of our position that such interventions are acts of ill treatment and/or torture. Following that, I share key advances and challenges in national implementation, and my proposal for a social model of crisis support to fill a gap in our advocacy and to respond to current challenges. Finally I set out the argument for reparations and indicate the forms it might take.
