Three Decades of MAD PRIDE: Community Organizing By Mental Health Consumers and Psychiatric Survivors

Sunday, October 4 @ 3:00pm
Lowell House Junior Common Room
(10 Holyoke Place, Cambridge, MA)

David W. Oaks, Harvard College Class of '77 and Executive Director of MindFreedom International, will speak on the "Mad Pride" movement and his experience as a Harvard undergraduate diagnosed with psychiatric disorders. After recovering his mental well-being by using exercise, nutrition, counseling, wilderness trips, and employment, Oaks has since been actively involved in what he calls the "mad movement," composed of hundreds of diverse groups internationally that are run by current and former mental health clients.

(This event is sponsored by the Harvard College Mental Health Awareness and Advocacy Group, the Transformation Center, and the National Empowerment Center.)
