Basic information about Forced Drugging Defense Package

As part of the MindFreedom Shield Program, the Law Project for Psychiatric Rights (PsychRights®) has prepared and contributed a generic Forced Drugging Defense Package, for adaptation and use by people facing forced drugging  around the country.  The Forced Drugging Defense Package is built around the written expert testimony of Grace E. Jackson, MD, and the award winning author of Mad in America, Robert Whitaker, which PsychRights has successfully used to stop forced drugging in one of its cases.  

In order to use the Forced Drugging Defense Package in court, people must obtain certified copies of this testimony from MindFreedom, which should make it "admissible evidence."   Only those who have a present need for this formal written testimony should ask for it, and to cover the costs involved MindFreedom does charge a nominal fee.

Laura Delano - Psychiatric survivor blogger activist

Laura works as a peer specialist in the traditional mental health system and writes a blog at, where she is sharing her story of recovery from psychiatry. After living with psychiatric labels for 13 years and taking psychotropic medications for ten of them, Laura says she found liberation in 2010 from her psychiatric diagnoses, from her reliance upon the mental health system, and from the once deep-seated belief that she was sentenced to a life-long "mental illness." Laura says, "I am proud to be a member of the MindFreedom International community for all MFI does to promote equality, justice, and civil rights for people who have been labeled 'mentally ill.'"
