City Club of Eugene Event on Homelessness Experiences Controversy

When the City Club of Eugene held a gathering on 20 November 2009 about the growing homelessness in the community, they experienced some controversy. A woman identifying herself as someone who has experienced homelessness tried to extend her question into a long presentation. She was asked to stop by City Club organizers. MindFreedom members were not involved in organizing the event, but were sitting nearby.

Dorothy Dundas

While institutionalized for three years as an adolescent in the 1960's, MindFreedom member Dorothy Washburn Dundas was labeled a "schizophrenic" and forced to undergo 40 combined insulin coma-electroshock "treatments." Dorothy says, "I experienced and witnessed many atrocities. I believe that luck, determination, and my own anger and one compassionate advocate were my best friends on the road to my ultimate survival and freedom." Through a number of op-ed pieces, she has voiced her opposition to abusive psychiatric practices. Her poster, "Behind Locked Doors," which she created from her hospital records, is used in training programs. Dorothy lives in the Boston area where she has raised her four wonderful children. She founded and is the sole driver in her "safe, friendly and reliable" car service called The Crystal Lake Express.
