Chris has been involved with Voices for several years and has survived the mental health service for decades. He has contributed a lot of stuff to the Voices magazine over the years, some more of which will be on here soon! "I have taken an interest in the things psychiatry does to people and their drugs, methods and outlook but not as an enthusiast, rather to get some idea as to where the hell they are coming from"
