City of Eugene Police and Mental Health

The City of Eugene, like many cities, is re-examining the role of police in responding to individuals who are considered to be in a mental health crisis. Depending on whether or not principles of empowerment and self-determination and humane alternatives are included, such re-examinations could be beneficial or harmful.

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.
