Alternatives Beyond PsychiatryWhat helps me if I go mad?     How can I find trustworthy help for a relative or a friend in need?     How can I protect myself from coercive treatment?     As a family member or friend, how can I help?     What should I do if I can no longer bear to work in the mental health field?     What are the alternatives to psychiatry?     How can I get involved in creating alternatives?     Assuming psychiatry would be abolished, what do you propose instead?

Those are some of the questions, which are addressed by the 61 authors—(ex-)users and survivors of psychiatry, medical practitioners, therapists, lawyers, social scientists, psychiatrists and relatives from all continents.
