— filed under: ,

Mark your calendar for this exciting conference planed for July of next summer, 2014: "CREATIVE REVOLUTION CONFERENCE: DEVELOPING AND EXPANDING ALTERNATIVES, MAKING BIG CHANGES!"

CREATIVE REVOLUTION: DEVELOPING AND EXPANDING ALTERNATIVES—MAKING BIG CHANGES!

To Our Longtime Supporters,

The Choices Committee is planning a conference that will take place from July 24th through July 27th, 2014, at Wisdom House in Connecticut.

Wisdom House in CT

The goal of the conference is to inspire and encourage more people to develop alternatives to the mental health system. We will create time for networking so that people can support each other in building and running alternatives.

As most of you are aware, MindFreedom Director David Oaks had to resign earlier this year due to a serious injury. His resignation has caused temporary financial challenges for MindFreedom.

To be able to provide the down payment for this much-needed conference we will need several conference attendees to pledge to register and prepay before December 31, 2013. Should something occur that prevents the conference from happening, you would receive your money back.

We are able to offer a $25 discount to those who prepay before December 31st. In addition, the first few people to pledge their attendance will also be able to reserve a shared room with private bath, or a private room with a shared bath.

Total inclusive costs of conference (room, all meals, registration fee):

    Shared room, shared bath: $389.00 - $25.00 = $364.00
    Private room, shared bath: $449.00 - $25.00 = $424.00
    Shared room, private bath: $472.00 - $25.00 = $447.00

To make the pledge to prepay before December 31, 2013, reply to:

creativerevolution2014@gmail.com

Please indicate which of the above amounts you are pledging for.

Thank you for your continued support.

-Janet Foner, Celia Brown, Al Galves, Florence Brown and Matthew Morrissey

Laura Delano - Psychiatric survivor blogger activist

Laura works as a peer specialist in the traditional mental health system and writes a blog at madinamerica.com, where she is sharing her story of recovery from psychiatry. After living with psychiatric labels for 13 years and taking psychotropic medications for ten of them, Laura says she found liberation in 2010 from her psychiatric diagnoses, from her reliance upon the mental health system, and from the once deep-seated belief that she was sentenced to a life-long "mental illness." Laura says, "I am proud to be a member of the MindFreedom International community for all MFI does to promote equality, justice, and civil rights for people who have been labeled 'mentally ill.'"
