We promote humane, non-coercive mental health services
We are a network of people in the UK promoting the development of drug-free and minimum medication therapeutic environments for people experiencing ‘psychosis’ or extreme states. We are part of an international movement of service users, survivors, activists, carers and professionals fighting for more humane, non-coercive mental health services.
People who hear voices, have visions or experience reality in different ways to those around them — and become overwhelmed by their experiences — are often referred to as experiencing ‘psychosis’. We believe that people can and do recover from difficulties which tend to be categorised under the term psychosis. This recovery can be with, without and sometimes despite psychiatric intervention.
What We Do
Soteria pioneers have written on philosophy, experience and research. Here too are articles and books presenting alternative approaches congruent with Soteria’s, and critical views of the state of psychiatry. Poetry and art are also featured!
Soteria Network is part of a wider movement for radical change in mental health approaches in the 21st century and therefore seeks to convey knowledge and awareness of these through providing links to a range of websites.
