We are MFI

Tsuyoshi Matsuo, MD, chair of MindFreedom Japan affiliate

Tsuyoshi Matsuo is a physician who worked in a psychiatric institution in Japan for four years and witnessed how terribly the patients are treated. Dr. Matsuo said he was glad to be an MFI member, "Because I believe MFI is trying to straighten out the mental health system which is insane.
