2003 Actions

Read about the MindFreedom Hunger Strike and march on the APA.

Folder MindFreedom Hunger Strike
On 16 August 2003, MindFreedom launched an historic hunger strike that won international media publicity. The simple demand to the psychiatric system was this: Produce scientific evidence about why a single model -- the medical theory of 'chemical imbalances' and pills -- ought to so overwhelmingly dominate mental health care as it does today. This public fast won public attention, and led to a fascinating back-and-forth between representatives of the American Psychiatric Association and the MindFreedom International Scientific Panel.
Page APA Protest
When the American Psychiatric Association held their annual meeting in May, 2003 several hundred psychiatric survivors and activists gathered to protest.
