I survived psychiatry
1.8 million people are directly affected by psychiatry in France. 350,000 are in hospital. For 1000 inhabitants, there would be 1 compulsory hospitalization. However, this system, generator of social exclusion and stigmatization, dominates. Interned at the age of 16, Christelle Rosar chained hospitalizations for twenty years. We tie her up, we inject her with drugs, we keep her in a vegetative state. She has seen patients stay in hospital from their teenage years to their death, others gradually suffer the side effects of treatment. Now freed, she tells us about her struggles to regain her autonomy and her place in society, denounces the abuses and flaws of the particularly violent French psychiatric system.
