This is the blog of Frank T. Blankenship, a survivor of psychiatric maltreatment, including imprisonment, torture, and forced drugging. Many people haven’t survived psychiatric maltreatment. Some people are, in fact, still in maltreatment. Some of these people would have themselves referred to as “consumers” of mental health services. Frank is not one of those. Other people who have had psychiatric maltreatment are cadavers, otherwise known as non-survivors. Frank is not one of those either. Frank is a person who was sucked up by the mental health system, and spit out, relatively intact, on the other side. Frank is a member of the Lunatic Fringe, and proud of it. The best of Frank T. Blankenship survives, in other words, uncaught, despite the ferocious efforts of thought police and their stooges to suppress him.
