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.

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.
