Information regarding mental health human rights in Nepal.

Folder Young Man in Nepal Forcibly Restrained and Drugged
This folder contains information and photographs that were forwarded to MindFreedom. Akal was 21 when he was admitted to a mental health facility in December 2007. There he was chained to a bed and forcibly drugged. Thanks to the efforts of a concerned individual in Nepal, Akal is now no longer in this dire situation. (Please note that MFI has not had the opportunity to obtain independent verification of this story, which was published on the web 23 June 2008.)

We are MFI



Samantha Johnson, psychiatric survivor, MFI intern

Samantha Johnson is a 22-year-old psychiatric survivor who is interning at the MindFreedom International office. "I was absolutely in disbelief at how the people were treated at the hospital. It was an environment of emotional abuse interspersed with 'treatments' and 'policies' that could be more accurately described as assault. The tragic thing is that there really are some good people working there, but they are unable to provide people with the help they need inside a system that prioritizes profits over people. It might take five years of counseling for someone to truly recover from a mental health crisis, but it takes five minutes to tranquilize them. This is why I started working with MindFreedom. For 25 years MFI has been challenging the mental health system to see us as human beings- to treat us as human beings- through peaceful activism. At MFI we emphasize individual choice, empowerment, and compassion as necessary aspects of a true healing process."
