Honoring Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. in 2014

— filed under: , ,

It is time to revisit the clarion call of one of the most influential activist leaders of the 20th century. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. repeated a theme over and over, in many different ways, for at least 12 years: "The salvation of our world lies in the hands of the maladjusted." He repeatedly said the world was in dire need of a new organization, the IAACM.

In the proud tradition of practitioners of nonviolence like Jesus, Henry David Thoreau, Mahatma Gandhi, Dorothy Day and Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr., we at MindFreedom International wish to honor the life Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. today. We want to recognize Dr. King's extraordinary contributions to inspire those of us who struggle against the corruptions of the psychiatric system and the abuses against people labeled with psychiatric conditions. We hope, in the coming year, to be able to continue our fight, along with many other allies, for a nonviolent revolution in America and in the world.

Blessings to all creatures of the earth.
The staff and board of directors of MindFreedom International

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."
