About is a website that promotes the views and opinions of the anti-psychiatry movement, which is a movement based on the view that psychiatric treatment is often more damaging than helpful to patients, highlighting controversies about psychiatry. The website claims that psychiatry is a harmful and oppressive practice that violates human rights and dignity.  It also challenges the validity and reliability of psychiatric diagnoses and treatments, and advocates for alternatives to psychiatry such as peer support, holistic health, trauma-informed therapy, social justice and human rights. The website features articles, videos, podcasts, books, and links to other resources that criticize various aspects of psychiatry, such as the reliability of psychiatric diagnosis, the effectiveness and harm of psychiatric medications, the coercive nature of involuntary commitment and treatment, electroconvulsive therapy, the DSM, and the philosophical and ethical implications of psychotherapy and psychoactive drugs.
The website claims to be "a voice for the voiceless" and "a platform for those who have been harmed by psychiatry". It also states that it is not affiliated with any organization or group, and that it does not provide any medical or legal advice. The website is run by a group of volunteers such as anti-psychiatry activists, writers, and researchers who have personal or professional experience with psychiatry and who share a common vision of "a world free of psychiatric oppression". The website invites visitors to join the anti-psychiatry movement and to contribute their own stories.
