What is MindFreedom Oregon?

A brief description of MindFreedom Oregon

MindFreedom Oregon


MindFreedom Oregon wins campaigns for human rights, empowerment, alternatives and self-determination in Oregon’s mental health system "in a spirit of mutual cooperation." Founded in 1986, the majority of MF Oregon members identify themselves as mental health consumers and psychiatric survivors -- that is, people who have experienced human rights violations in the mental health system. MF Oregon is open to the public and welcomes mental health workers, advocates, and family members. MindFreedom has a policy of independence, and receives no funding from the psychiatric industry.
 
MF Oregon educates the public with events and publications, and has been active in the state legislature stopping bad bills and promoting good ones. MF Oregon gathered Mad Pride oral histories from Oregonians who have experienced the mental health system. MF Oregon maintains an office in Eugene, Oregon that is wheelchair accessible. MF Oregon offers workshops and speaking engagements, and has a state-wide e-mail announcement list that reaches more than a thousand Oregonians.

Cindi Fisher, mother of psychiatric survivor

Cindi Fisher has fought for years for her son, who has experienced forced psychiatric drugging and other human rights violations in the State of Washington. She has even held protest fasts on her son's behalf (see photo of Day One). Cindi says: "In the past, advocating for my 33-year-old psychiatric survivor son over the years has been very frustrating and has sometimes felt hopeless! Now, as a member of MindFreedom, I feel I have the voice of thousands to join me. My effectiveness and awareness as an advocate has indeed multiplied a thousand times. Thank you David and MindFreedom for your many years of work to build such a powerful and empowering organization!"
