The Western Mass. Recovery Learning Community (RLC) is hosting "An Evening with David Oaks" on Monday, October 5th.  David Oaks is the Executive Director of MindFreedom International and was recently featured on ABC Primetime.  David is returning to old stomping grounds where he began his career as a member of the Mental Patient Liberation Front in Boston in 1976.  David will speak about his experiences with the consumer/survivor/ex-patient movement not only to provide us with important historical information, but also as a guide for where we should be going as an international peer movement.  Ample time will be given for an interactive discussion.

Chuck Hughes is a psychiatric survivor activist from Santa Barbara, California.

"I find inspiration and mental support in MindFreedom," says Chuck. "I like associating with like-minded activists for human rights in mental health. When I go into a Board or Commission and say I am a member of MindFreedom International. It gives what I say a lot more validity and my voice carries a lot farther. My first of eight involuntarily institutionalizations was at age 23. I have witnessed much injustice in mental health. I have been involved with the user and survivor movement since 1992. My goal is to help stop forced outpatient psychiatric procedures, seclusion, restraints and other human rights violations, psychiatric abuse and torture. Of particular concern is the elimination of forced electroconvulsive treatment (ECT) on people of all ages."
