bias

Mainstream media bias toward the perspective of the mental health industry, while excluding the voice of critics and mental health consumers and psychiatric survivors, is one of the biggest obstacles to winning human rights in the mental health system. Major media tend to ignore the public service work of mental health consumers and psychiatric survivors, and instead spotlight the instances where someone with a psychiatric label is involved with violence. Challenge mainstream media bias!

Dorothy Dundas

While institutionalized for three years as an adolescent in the 1960's, MindFreedom member Dorothy Washburn Dundas was labeled a "schizophrenic" and forced to undergo 40 combined insulin coma-electroshock "treatments." Dorothy says, "I experienced and witnessed many atrocities. I believe that luck, determination, and my own anger and one compassionate advocate were my best friends on the road to my ultimate survival and freedom." Through a number of op-ed pieces, she has voiced her opposition to abusive psychiatric practices. Her poster, "Behind Locked Doors," which she created from her hospital records, is used in training programs. Dorothy lives in the Boston area where she has raised her four wonderful children. She founded and is the sole driver in her "safe, friendly and reliable" car service called The Crystal Lake Express.
