Pat Deegan on Emancipatory Technologies
Sometimes people ask me why I created CommonGround. The reason I created it was to amplify people’s voice in the 15-minute psychiatric medication consultation. We need to have a voice in our treatment. We need to get prepared to participate in informed medical decision making with our doctors and nurses. In this 3 minute video, I express why it is emancipatory for those of us diagnosed with psychiatric disorders to speak the truth of our experience.
