Mad Pride - Other Information

This folder contains information about the Mad Pride campaign that does not pertain to event announcements.

Page Mad Pride Campaign Committee
Mad Pride celebrates the creativity, strength and resilience of the human spirit. It provides an opportunity to empower psychiatric survivors and raise public consciousness about human rights through various activities such as art, theatre, music, poetry, protests, vigils and more. Since 1999 MindFreedom has promoted Mad Pride events internationally and we have now established a Mad Pride International Coordinating Committee to launch Mad Pride around theworld.

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.'"
