Mary Maddock, founder of MindFreedom Ireland, profiled

The Irish Sunday World, on 17 July 2011, profiled Mary Maddock. Mary used to be a nun, and ended up getting forced electroshock, along with coerced psychiatric drugging on which she became dependent. Mary, with help from her husband Jim, got free of the psychiatric system, and founded MindFreedom Ireland. This is a one-page PDF of the story about Mary in this Irish publication.

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."
