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.

Leah Harris

Leah Harris, a second generation psychiatric survivor, discovered MindFreedom in 2000 when she was 25 years old. Her first act in the mad movement was to tell her story of oppression and resistance, and to help edit stories for MindFreedom's Oral History Project. Since then, she has been working in various ways to help achieve the vision of MindFreedom: an end to all forms of psychiatric oppression, healing of all forms of "normality," and the creation of vibrant, colorful communities that honor and celebrate diversity, difference, and the full range of human experience.
