▸ to illustrate the lack of adequate care in psychiatric facilities in the 1970s

▸ to demonstrate that diagnostic assessments are ineffective

▸ to demonstrate that labels such as schizophrenia can be stigmatizing and dehumanizing by emphasizing a person's diagnosis rather than their identity

▸ to illustrate the difficulties that patients have in communicating with doctors and other mental health professionals
