It may be a long video, but I recommend viewing t it. There are some tragically stark similarities to the way people with dementia have been ‘Psychiatrized’ primarily, due to BPSD. Yet another nail in the BPSD coffin… and why we must #BanBPSD.
BPSD is mostly a ‘Psychiatrization’ of normal human responses to dementia. Like Dr Chrisjohn in this video, it really is time we say it, exactly as it is, and we must stand together, in resistance of our own continued ‘genocide’. And just like Indigenous Peoples…
People with dementia are not a ‘worthless group of people’. (Kate Swaffer 2018)
