ICSPP is a research and educational network devoted to educating professionals and the public concerning the impact of mental health theories on public policy and the effects of therapeutic practices upon individual well-being, personal freedom, and family and community values. ICSPP is comprised of a network of medical practitioners, psychologists and mental health professionals, professors, teachers, attorneys, "psychiatric survivors" and lay persons. ICSPP is an educational support network, informing professionals, the public, and the media of the problems, biases and lack of validity in psychological and psychiatric reseaerch. ICSPP critically analyzes peer reviewed research, highlighting limitations to such research, and exposes how our profession is unable to ethically and effectively treat social-emotional and interpersonal challenges as though they were caused real biological medical diseases.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
my clinical practice, with my students, with my family, with my local and national government, and legally combating unethical pharmacutical industry practices.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
praise those who already have done so much for the past 30+ years!, donate 100% of my time, donate $1,000's of my own income, create a larger grass roots movement that stands up to continual marketing.
What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
the professional and academic peer support. I also greatly enjoy being able to better understand how to debunk and untangle the four False Pillars of the biological model of mental "illness."
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
ethical, highly intelligent, speaking against their own best financial interest and were quite open at differing perspectives and ideas as to what might help people heal and develop.
If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
support more independent research, combat the billions of dollars in marketing subjective and unfounded psychological "disease", and support the openning an alternative treatment program (Soteria) for severe mental suffering and dysfunction.
Ways to make it better...
I had more people wtih financial resources. Those who need the most help, have the least.
In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...
financial, lack of full time employment/support, inability to gain media attention, inability to attrack more academic and professional mental health individuals (i.e. out of fear of personal attack and discrediting).
One thing I'd also say is that...
the research discussed and analyzed continually reinforces how I practice. It is nice to hear "the other side" of the coin once and a while.
When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
