From the organizers:

"Mad Pride comes to Leeds in West Yorkshire, England, this weekend. We  will be celebrating the beautiful uniqueness of our minds in the form of a picnic on Woodhouse Moor on the afternoon of Saturday 25th July (starting at 2 p.m. opposite the Hyde Park allotments). There will be poetry, music & majik! Please bring food, drink, musical instruments, good cheer etc.

Then later that same day we'll be convening at Oblong, a social centre which is on Beulah Mount in Woodhouse at around 7.30 p.m. for an evening of celebration. There'll be vegan food and entertainment, (including an open mic, so bring your poems & music), and also possibly a mad dancing competition!"

Laura Delano - Psychiatric survivor blogger activist

Laura works as a peer specialist in the traditional mental health system and writes a blog at madinamerica.com, where she is sharing her story of recovery from psychiatry. After living with psychiatric labels for 13 years and taking psychotropic medications for ten of them, Laura says she found liberation in 2010 from her psychiatric diagnoses, from her reliance upon the mental health system, and from the once deep-seated belief that she was sentenced to a life-long "mental illness." Laura says, "I am proud to be a member of the MindFreedom International community for all MFI does to promote equality, justice, and civil rights for people who have been labeled 'mentally ill.'"
