Oregon News to Change Mental Health System: Bills, Call to Governor

Psychiatric survivors testify for SB 363 and SB 364.

MindFreedom Oregon is working with a number of other groups throughout Oregon for human rights and alternatives in the mental health system.

Some Oregon news highlights:

  • News about supporting SB 363 and 364: These bills would put into law in Oregon the principles of self-determination. Oregon would finally have an office of mental health consumer affairs, an ombudsman office to handle complaints about Oregon's mental health system, and support for a mental health consumer advisory council. For more info...
  • News about opposing HB 3954 and HB 2995: These "dual disappointments" target privacy among Oregonians diagnosed with psychiatric disabilities. If both pass, then medical personnel could give away private information from our protected medical records about mental health. And police would create a database for certain individuals with psychiatric labels. For more info...
  • Call to the Governor! Psychiatric survivor Dave Romprey had a guest column published in the Salem Statesman Journal on 24 March 2007 calling upon Governor Ted Kulongoski to weave the principles of recovery and consumer-direction into Oregon's psychiatric system, especially since the Governor wants to build new huge institutions. Here's how you can easily join in contacting the Governor via the web. For more info...
  • Oregon psychiatric survivors and mental health consumers are launching a state-wide alliance called the Oregon Consumer/Survivor Coalition. You are invited to participate. For more info...
