Ron Unger LCSW is both an human rights activist and a therapist who specializes in alternative approaches for "psychosis." Said Ron, "As a young person, I had my own experiences that could have been labeled 'psychotic' but got through them without mental health system intervention. I am proud to be a member of MindFreedom, the world's leading coalition fighting for radical reform in the mental health system!" Ron created MFI's "Truth Injection Campaign."
