The Story of MindFreedom Free Live Internet Radio
Since June 2006, with some interruption for improvement, MindFreedom Radio Show has supported a nonviolent revolution in the mental health system. Leaders, authors, activists, mental health professionals, psychiatric survivors and others who are actively changing and challenging the current mental health system have been featured in live interviews. Listeners have called in from around the world.
The MindFreedom Web Radio Show is hosted by psychiatric rights activist David Oaks, director of MindFreedom. David also experienced the mental health system as a youth when he was institutionalized five times and diagnosed "schizophrenic." For a brief bio about David click here.
Today the show is broadcast on BlogTalkRadio:
The first two years, The Progressive Radio Network produced the show along with several others from its studio in New York City. PRN was founded by radio personality and health activist leader Gary Null.
