Today, 10 October, is considered World Mental Health Day.

But not everyone is celebrating by pushing the mental health system.

MindFreedom chose this day to launch an international campaign to Boycott Normal. Today's launch celebrates a creative and diverse world where being “normal” and mental well being can be two different things.

MindFreedom held a street theater in front of the Chamber of Commerce in our main office's hometown, Eugene, Oregon, USA. Psychiatric survivor activists and allies called on everyone to "Boycott Normal," and support the Occupy Movement.

What's called 'normal' is wrecking Earth's ecosystem... Can you possibly be 'crazier than normal'?

Today, about 40 activists held a peaceful street theater in front of the local Chamber of Commerce. Three judges in wigs and robes decided whether performers with poetry, dance and music were able to "Out-Crazy the Chamber." It was a Weird-Off!

The chamber always won.
