    ACTION: How *You* Can Promote Self-Directed, Safe and Humane Healing Approaches in Mental Health

by Matthew Morrissey, MindFreedom International (MFI) Board Member

Today -- July 4th, 2010 -- MindFreedom’s Directory of Mental Health Alternatives celebrates its one-year anniversary:

Currently, we have providers listed in 18 states and 3 countries. Over the next year, we would like to have providers listed for every state in the USA, as well as including more international providers.

We need your help to meet this goal.

If you are receiving services from a provider whom you find helpful and sympathetic to MFI's vision, go to the MFI Directory Gateway, and download our new INFORMATION SHEETS here:

The free Info Sheets are PDF's of a flyer, invitation letter and Statement of Principles. Bring these along with you the next time you see your provider. Encourage her or him to sign up on the Directory.

Or maybe you have some free time and want to take a simple, direct action in your area?

Then put up some of these INFO SHEETS at your community mental health clinic, local wellness center, or even educational institutions that teach psychology or other approaches to emotional healing.

No matter what, please forward this e-mail message -- perhaps with a few of your words of personal support -- to those who may be interested.

This is a unique way to introduce MFI and its vision to new people in your community.

Finally, if you are a provider of services who agrees with MindFreedom’s vision of a just and humane mental health system, please sign up to be listed on the Directory, which is currently free. How to sign up for the Directory is also at the MFI Directory Gateway, here:

Thank you in advance,

Chuck Hughes is a psychiatric survivor activist from Santa Barbara, California.

"I find inspiration and mental support in MindFreedom," says Chuck. "I like associating with like-minded activists for human rights in mental health. When I go into a Board or Commission and say I am a member of MindFreedom International. It gives what I say a lot more validity and my voice carries a lot farther. My first of eight involuntarily institutionalizations was at age 23. I have witnessed much injustice in mental health. I have been involved with the user and survivor movement since 1992. My goal is to help stop forced outpatient psychiatric procedures, seclusion, restraints and other human rights violations, psychiatric abuse and torture. Of particular concern is the elimination of forced electroconvulsive treatment (ECT) on people of all ages."
