ABC-TV has announced that they plan to run a piece about the MAD PRIDE movement, including a number of groups in MindFreedom International's coalition, on one of their national news magazine shows. David Oaks, director of MindFreedom International, was interviewed for the show, along with a number of members and allies.

The MAD PRIDE segment is tentatively scheduled for this Tuesday, 25 August 2009, on Primetime's "Outsiders" series. For times, check your local listings. (In Eugene, Oregon it's scheduled for 10 pm.)

"There's no guarantee on the results," said David, "but this is a chance to reach a wider diversity of the public about the existence of MAD PRIDE."

Samantha Johnson, psychiatric survivor, MFI intern

Samantha Johnson is a 22-year-old psychiatric survivor who is interning at the MindFreedom International office. "I was absolutely in disbelief at how the people were treated at the hospital. It was an environment of emotional abuse interspersed with 'treatments' and 'policies' that could be more accurately described as assault. The tragic thing is that there really are some good people working there, but they are unable to provide people with the help they need inside a system that prioritizes profits over people. It might take five years of counseling for someone to truly recover from a mental health crisis, but it takes five minutes to tranquilize them. This is why I started working with MindFreedom. For 25 years MFI has been challenging the mental health system to see us as human beings- to treat us as human beings- through peaceful activism. At MFI we emphasize individual choice, empowerment, and compassion as necessary aspects of a true healing process."
