Nine Ways to Take Action for David!

Contributors: johnca

One of the best ways to support David Oaks as he recovers from his accident is to carry on the work of MindFreedom International. Here are some ways you can help!

  1. Donate, join or renew your membership to support MFI. We've even created a special ACTION FOR OAKS fund.David W. Oaks
  2. Tell your I GOT BETTER story by video or text.
    is MindFreedom International's campaign to challenge messages of hopelessness in mental health care, and spread the word that real recovery is possible, and furthermore is aided by taking a diversity of approaches beyond drugs! You can see some of the I GOT BETTER videos here.
  3. Join us on December 10, 2012 for a DAY FOR DAVID: sending positive energy, love, and prayer to him and his family. (The day has passed, but keep sending your support!)
  4. Email the World Health Organization about electroshock.

    Join Mary Maddock and the MFI Initiative on Electroshock and Human Rights in calling global attention to the dangers of this procedure by emailing the World Health Organization.

  5. Stay tuned for more soon on Creative Maladjustment Week
    Martin Luther King, Jr. called for the establishment of an International Association for the Advancement of Creative Maladjustment (IAACM) in numerous speeches, saying that "the salvation of the world lies in the hands of the creatively maladjusted." Next July 7-14, 2013, help us take Mad Pride to a whole new level with a week of events inspiring & organizing more activists, and honoring the already creatively maladjusted amongst us! Also see the IAACM Facebook page.
  6. Connect with other activists & allies in your region.
    If you don't see an affiliate in your region, find out how to start one! You can also click on that link if you are in an organization active in this movement and would like to join the coalition as a sponsor.
  7. Are you a mental health care provider who shares our broad perspective on mental health care? Get listed on the MFI Directory of Alternatives - it's free!
  8. Got news? Email and/or tweet it with #mindfreedom
  9. Have another idea for a MindFreedom action? Email us at - we'd love to hear from you!
