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."

Chuck Hughes is a psychiatric survivor activist from Santa Barbara, California.

"I find inspiration and mental support in MindFreedom," says Chuck. "I like associating with like-minded activists for human rights in mental health. When I go into a Board or Commission and say I am a member of MindFreedom International. It gives what I say a lot more validity and my voice carries a lot farther. My first of eight involuntarily institutionalizations was at age 23. I have witnessed much injustice in mental health. I have been involved with the user and survivor movement since 1992. My goal is to help stop forced outpatient psychiatric procedures, seclusion, restraints and other human rights violations, psychiatric abuse and torture. Of particular concern is the elimination of forced electroconvulsive treatment (ECT) on people of all ages."
