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."

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.
