Hoax alerts: Watch out for false info on Internet

These are updated notices about misinformation and fraud found on the Internet that may be relevant to MindFreedom members.

Page Hoax about suicide and "schizophrenia."
A participant on a Yahoo Internet group posted a hoax -- intentionally or not -- that MindFreedom is "associated" with an effort to help supply "techniques" to encourage suicide by people diagnosed as "schizophrenic." This is of course totally false, and is a hoax. Here is the truth.
Page An individual against our human rights, D. J. Jaffe, is circulating a rumor that MFI may be linked to "Scientology"
MindFreedom International is 100 percent independent, with no funding from or links to any government, corporation, drug company or religion. However, defenders of the mental health system have tried to say that all critics of the psychiatric system "must" be linked to Scientology, and their organization CCHR. A promoter of more forced psychiatric drugging, D. J. Jaffe, is circulating this rumor by Twitter, etc.

Samantha Johnson, psychiatric survivor, MFI intern

Samantha Johnson is a 22-year-old psychiatric survivor who is interning at the MindFreedom International office. "I was absolutely in disbelief at how the people were treated at the hospital. It was an environment of emotional abuse interspersed with 'treatments' and 'policies' that could be more accurately described as assault. The tragic thing is that there really are some good people working there, but they are unable to provide people with the help they need inside a system that prioritizes profits over people. It might take five years of counseling for someone to truly recover from a mental health crisis, but it takes five minutes to tranquilize them. This is why I started working with MindFreedom. For 25 years MFI has been challenging the mental health system to see us as human beings- to treat us as human beings- through peaceful activism. At MFI we emphasize individual choice, empowerment, and compassion as necessary aspects of a true healing process."
