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.

Loretta Wilson: Electroshock survivor and MindFreedom Michigan liaison

I joined MindFreedom after learning about the Ray Sandford campaign. It was so good to find a group with a common goal. Feeling the support, knowing I'm not alone has been very comforting. It was such a relief to find this organization. Keep up the good work! I am a survivor of 58 electroshocks with a strong desire to see electroshock abolished. I am willing to talk to anyone who is willing to listen. I have even talked to some who don't want to hear about it! I had post-procedure pain from my electroshock. I struggle daily with memory loss from electroshock. I am 69 years old, widowed, mother of 5, grandmother of 7 and great grandma to my new baby girl, 'Sophie.' She's beautiful!
