In the spirit of mutual cooperation, MindFreedom supports the movements to Occupy worldwide. We encourage members to join this momentous movement to take back our government, economy, environment, media, schools... and mental health system!
MindFreedom International's mission is to "lead a nonviolent revolution of freedom, equality, truth and human rights that unites people affected by the mental health system with movements for justice everywhere."
With this in mind, we support the movements to Occupy worldwide.
It's an Occupation of Normal!
