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.)

Lynne Salvi, psychiatric survivor

Lynne M. Salvi [1963 - 2011] was an activist with MindFreedom Lane County. She experienced 24 years of human rights violations in the mental health system. Lynne said, "Since finding MindFreedom and becoming a member, my life changed dramatically. I found many people who understand through experience without words. MindFreedom feels like a reunion of family I never knew before. This connection and encouragement give me the courage to speak out. I am grateful to find myself using those painful experiences to help others. Today I am medication-free and psychiatrist-free for the first time." See "Related Content" below for writing by Lynne.
