Upcoming Guests on MindFreedom Radio:

  • Wed., 3 October 2007, 4 pm ET:  Dorothy Washburn Dundas

While institutionalized for three years as an adolescent in the 1960's, Dorothy Washburn Dundas was labeled a "schizophrenic" and forced to undergo 40 combined insulincoma-electroshock "treatments." She experienced and witnessed many atrocities.

Dorothy says, "Luck, determination, my own anger and one compassionate advocate were my
best friends on the road to my ultimate survival and freedom."

Through a number of op-ed pieces, she has voiced her opposition to abusive psychiatric practices, and her poster, "Behind Locked Doors," which she created from her hospital records, is used in training programs.  She lives in the Boston area where she has raised her four wonderful children; she founded and is the sole driver in her "safe, friendly and reliable" car service, The Crystal Lake Express.

  • Wed., 10 October 2007, 4 pm:  A pre-recorded repeat of a past show will be played.
  • Wed, 17 October 2007 , 4 pm: Al Galves

Al is a psychologist and activist for more choices in the mental health system. He is also the author of a brand new book, "Lighten Up: Dance With Your Dark Side."

We are MFI

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."
