In this article I clarify the relationship between the use of involuntary antipsychotic medication and a delusional
person’s freedom of thought in the light of three different views of freedom, namely, freedom as negative freedom,
freedom as having an autonomous mind and freedom as capability. It is not clear how freedom of thought as a psychotic
person’s human right should be understood and protected in practice. Therefore, further discussion is needed. These
different ways of understanding a patient’s freedom of thought also encourages to consider individual situations, hear
the patient’s voice and work both multiprofessionally and across disciplines.
