PDF of Declaration of Dresden Against Coerced Psychiatric Treatment

Several psychiatric survivor organizations, including MindFreedom International, helped develop and issue this call to end force and coercion in the mental health system. The timing of the statement is to coincide with a special conference by the World Psychiatric Association (WPA) on the subject of coercion in psychiatry which is being held in Dresden in June 2007. Several representatives from these organizations will be inside the WPA conference speaking out, and distributing the statement.
