Sample text

Entering the reality of the ex-patient, a precondition for dialogue, necessitates a dialectical consciousness: a perspective that sees the interpenetration of objective context with subjectivity. It must grasp the contradiction to humanity that the identity of mental patienthood expresses, and accept the given reality as no more than a description of things as they are now, as the beginning of the process of transformation. Freire describes it this way: one cannot conceive of objectivity without subjectivity.

We are saying, more simply, that the ex-patient, like us, cannot be understood apart from his/her context, and that the form of self-expression used in any context is a crystallization of the social relations contained therein. One’s identity, therefore, emerges as a critical commentary on a social network rather than standing as a statement about an autonomous individual. What we mean here is that the behaviour of the ‘chronic’ ex-patient must be seen in two ways at the same time. It must be understood as a learned survival strategy, as historical baggage that the person brings with him/her from the hospital; and it must be seen as a result of the social relations she/he is and has been involved in over time.

Corresponding to basic values espoused by State Bureaus of the Budget, or the Office of Management and Budget at the federal level, their focus has been on management by objectives, fiscal accountability mechanisms, cost containment and system development. The ‘New Breed’ of mental health policy-makers, however, are not consciously predisposed against prevailing individual defect models, since their systems training and management outlook contains no ideological or substantive critique of the structure of society.
