Død i Psykiatrien (DiP) in a few lines?
Død i Psykiatrien (DiP) ’Dead in Psychiatric Care’ was founded in 2009 by a group of family and friends of young people who have died in psychiatric care.
It is very important for people who have lost a dear friend or family member to be able to meet and talk to people who can listen and understand. Død i Psykiatrien (DiP) provides phone counselling, where people experiencing grief can call to share their feelings and difficulties.
The association aims to create a forum for them to share their experiences but also to formulate their requests for change to the psychiatric treatment modalities that led to the death of their loved ones. The association’s objective is also to improve the conditions of people in treatment today .
DiP’s work mostly focuses on groups of people receiving heavy treatment and medication. DiP wants to ensure these groups are not left behind by the system and wants to raise awareness about over medication and the side effects of psychotropics that can be very dangerous. Many patients have developed illnesses because of the side effects of psychotropics drugs, which are also too often leading to death.
