Oregon Ted Governor vs. state-wide voice of mental health consumers

Information about how Oreegon's Governor Ted Kulongoski has -- for more than six years -- refused to grant any resources for the state-wide voice of mental health consumers and psychiatric survivors. Ever since January 2002, the Governor's first month in office, he has continued to propose zero funds for activities such as a mental health consumer affairs office. Most USA states have some kind of funding to support the state-wide empowerment and voice of mental health clients. Not Oregon. Ask the Governor, "Why Zero?"

REJECTED: Oregon Gov. Kulongoski vs. state-wide voice of mental health clients.

Oregon's Governor Ted Kulongoski rejected this proposal from his own mental health system to support the state-wide voice of mental health consumers and psychiatric survivors with an office of mental health consumer affairs. Most USA states have some kind of support to encourage the empowerment state-wide of mental health clients. Not Oregon. Gov. Kulongoski met with mental health client organization leaders and pledged support in 2009.

LaTonya Gibbs: MindFreedom Office Rock Star and Mental Health Consumer

LaTonya says, "I love working for such an 'insanely supportive' organization. MindFreedom is a touchstone for a lot of different commissions that are fighting for human rights, both locally and internationally. This is also an office that practices what it preaches. The director and staff are intent on not letting its members or it's employees lose themselves while trying to 'make a living', if we can help it. We're all human beings and that comes first here." LaTonya works in the MindFreedom office and is a mental health consumer.
