IAACM - Creative Maladjustment

International Association for the Advancement of Creative Maladjustment - Fulfilling Martin Luther King's Vision

Link David Oaks on the IAACM
YouTube video: David Oaks describes a new MadPride initiative, the International Association for the Advancement of Creative Maladjustment (IAACM) inspired by Martin Luther King, Jr.. Oaks calls for activists to help steward King's vision of a non-violent revolution by recording and uploading videos, pictures and files to Flickr, YouTube, and other websites, that reflect experiences with, or alternatives to, the mental health system. Oaks announces that MindFreedom will have contests and will give awards to see who best reflects King's vision for creative maladjustment, for material that is tagged 'IAACM' and brought to MFI's attention.
Link Information on MindFreedom web site about IAACM
Martin Luther King, Jr. said repeatedly that the world was in dire need of a new organization, "The International Association for the Advancement of Creative Maladjustment." Apparently none ever was created in a formal sense... until MindFreedom and the Mad Pride movement. Patch Adams is the chair. With this link, you will find a "search" for places on the MindFreedom web site that mention IAACM.

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.'"
