Re: “Mad Medicine

I hope those interested in this topic find out more. One of the first USA psychiatric survivor groups started in Portland 40 years ago, with the provocative name "Insane Liberation Front." For the last four decades there has been organizing -- often under the radar of the culture or media -- of, by and for psychiatric survivors and mental health consumers. Oregonians who would like to find out more, should google some of these words: Google MINDFREEDOM, you will find that the nonprofit I direct is in Eugene, and we do a lot of state-wide work. Google OREGON CONSUMER SURVIVOR COALITION, you'll find there is a state-wide coalition of more than a dozen groups run by people diagnosed with psychiatric disabilities. Google OPAL NETWORK NEWS, and you'll find a gate-way to a model here in Lane County that combines cross-disability and mental health consumer/psychiatric survivors. Folks can also contact our MindFreedom office at 541-345-9106 or office@mindfreedom.org. Thanks,

David
