Reachout.org Launches with Input from MindFreedom International Youth

Reachout.org Launches with Input from MindFreedom International Youth

Reachout.com is launched!



By Martin Rafferty, MFI Youth Advisory Committee

Enter Reachout.com a website dedicated to offering support from youth for youth.

Although there are many web sites that currently exist to support young adults going through tough situations, Reachout.com does it right.

The site is a library of support, stories and facts written by youth for youth.

At first glance at this beautiful site, the words polished and youth friendly certainly come to mind. This is because throughout the entire design process, young adults were consulted with, and even helped to design certain elements of the page.

Match that with a professional company, and the result is a site that can really reach youth where they are at.

Chrissy, a MFI youth member stars in one of the highly viewed videos. In the video Chrissy shows some of the art that she has made around town, and how it has helped her deal with her depression.

Matched with some fancy editing and fast paced music, the message comes across smoothly.

Levi Chambers: Young adult leader

Levi Chambers is a sociology student, organizer, and psychiatric survivor working toward mental health justice in Olympia, Washington. He said: "I am a member of MFI because the organization fights for my rights more effectively than groups with funding from big pharma. My family and I stopped supporting those groups, and have been MFI fans ever since." Levi believes in community mental support, non-pathological and non-chemical treatment alternatives, and declines to use psychiatric labels. Currently a 22-year-old college student involved in the Icarus Project and a member of MindFreedom International, Levi hopes to become a researcher who works to gain scientific acknowledgment for alternative recovery models. If you would like to work with Levi to fight discrimination, build alternatives to conventional psychiatry, and demand a non-violent revolution in mental health in Washington State, please contact him.
