Gateway to Info About Creating MFI Global Mental Health Handbook

MindFreedom is creating a much-needed Global Mental Health Empowerment Handbook, thanks to a grant from CBM. The handbook aims to empower psychiatric survivors, mental health consumers/users, and their allies to be heard more effectively by their communities, care providers, and policy makers. Participation is encouraged internationally, especially in poor and developing nations.

Update: Deadline extended to 31 August 2011.

 

Below are links to the latest info about the creation of the MFI Global Mental Health Handbook. 

We envision active participation, suggestions, advice and submissions from lots of people in our movement in many nations. The chair of the MindFreedom Global Committee is Celia Brown (photo on right)

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."
