— filed under: ,

Mad Pride event in Brisbane, Australia.

WHAT: Walk of Pride

WHEN: 10 October 2009

WHERE: Victoria Bridge, Brisbane, Australia


From a participant:

"Brisbane Australia's first Walk of Pride, held annually in a few places in Australia and organised by the Association of Relatives and Friends of Mentally Ill and Queensland Alliance (a network body for Psychiatric disability groups). The point is to raise awareness, but all are welcome to join walk across Victoria Bridge from Southbank side at 3.30pm, Brisbane. I hope consumers will be in strong numbers, me amongst them helping support my large sheet banner with 'MAD PRIDE' on it in black and gold with smiley face!"

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.'"
