Another nail in the BPSD coffin

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)

  1. Thought provoking Kate just gob smacked that so called experts can make decisions and then justify the results because they know best for those effected and impacted. Wonder if one day down the track Australia government may need any sorry statement to people living with dementia?? Keep plugging away buddy this matters now and years into the future. “Perseverance is a great element of success. If you only knock long enough and loud enough at the gate, you are sure to wake up somebody.” Henry Wandsworth Longfellow
