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!

Levi Chambers: Young adult leader

Levi Chambers is a sociology student, organizer, and psychiatric survivor working toward mental health justice in Olympia, Washington. He said: "I am a member of MFI because the organization fights for my rights more effectively than groups with funding from big pharma. My family and I stopped supporting those groups, and have been MFI fans ever since." Levi believes in community mental support, non-pathological and non-chemical treatment alternatives, and declines to use psychiatric labels. Currently a 22-year-old college student involved in the Icarus Project and a member of MindFreedom International, Levi hopes to become a researcher who works to gain scientific acknowledgment for alternative recovery models. If you would like to work with Levi to fight discrimination, build alternatives to conventional psychiatry, and demand a non-violent revolution in mental health in Washington State, please contact him.
