Members of Congress: Oppose "Helping Families in Mental Health Crisis Act" (H.R. 3717) petition now online!

Helping families in Mental Health Crisis Act doesn't help people with psychiatric disabilities--it hurts them and their families! The bill eliminates legal advocacy on behalf of people with psychiatric disabilities. --The bill cuts 85% of funding for protection and advocacy programs. People with psychiatric disabilities WILL be unable to enforce legal protections from discrimination in housing, employment, community living, and voting. The bill reduces privacy protections for individuals with psychiatric disabilities. --Under the bill people with psychiatric disabilities won't get the same HIPPA protections every one else is entitled to. The bill would increase needless institutionalization. --The bill would give more money to psychiatric institutions instead of programs that help people live in community.

Chuck Hughes is a psychiatric survivor activist from Santa Barbara, California.

"I find inspiration and mental support in MindFreedom," says Chuck. "I like associating with like-minded activists for human rights in mental health. When I go into a Board or Commission and say I am a member of MindFreedom International. It gives what I say a lot more validity and my voice carries a lot farther. My first of eight involuntarily institutionalizations was at age 23. I have witnessed much injustice in mental health. I have been involved with the user and survivor movement since 1992. My goal is to help stop forced outpatient psychiatric procedures, seclusion, restraints and other human rights violations, psychiatric abuse and torture. Of particular concern is the elimination of forced electroconvulsive treatment (ECT) on people of all ages."
