I am a client of a county mental health clinic. I believe that the quality of my care and the privacy of my treatment are threatened by heavy-hitting, ego-centered, and power-driven members of consumer, survivor, or ex-consumer organizations. I have experienced firsthand the wrath of the extremists who linger within the mental health system so that they can bring it down, take control, and receive government dollars to pretend that they are providing my treatment. They call it "alternative treatment," which is meant to eventually replace all forms of professionalism in the field. They are careful to say that they are working "in conjunction with, not as a replacement for" the mental health system—but in the underground, they joke that once they infiltrate, they will rule.
