Drop the Disorder
'Drop the Disorder!' is an active Facebook group with more than 13,000 members aimed at anyone interested in challenging traditional approaches to emotional distress. It provides a place to explore more helpful alternatives to the language of disorder, diagnosis and psychotropic drugs. Members include therapeutic and support professionals, people with lived experience, academics, activists and 'service users'. The group has emerged from 'A Disorder for Everyone' (AD4E) which runs a number of events online and throughout the UK. These gatherings are a great opportunity to come together and discuss the critical questions of the day around the biomedical model in mental health. They are lively, friendly and very moving events and filled with poetry!
