Drop the Disorder


"The relevant question in psychiatry shouldn't be what's wrong with you but what happened to you?" (Jacqui Dillon / Eleanor Londgen)


I am a member of ‘Drop the Disorder!’ a group that challenges traditional approaches to emotional distress (Mental Health). Labels such as; Bipolar, OCD, Depressive, Borderline, etc, do not tell truthful stories they are the medicalisation of your life experiences. I explore a more helpful and appropriate alternative to the language of disorder, diagnosis, medicalisation and psychotropic drugs.


Members include therapeutic and support professionals, people with lived experience, academics, ‘service users’, mental health professionals, activists, bloggers, supporters, and allies, etc. Anyone who is interested is welcome!
