Notes from the 2014 Creative Revolution Conference

— filed under: , ,

Special thanks to Celia Brown for collecting these notes from last summer's successful Creative Revolution conference at the Wisdom House in Connecticut.

This past summer July 24-27. 2014. The Choices Committee of MindFreedom International had a successful conference that was attended by over 100 people. 

The conference was held at Wisdom House in Litchfield, Connecticut.  Each Conference participant chose one of five tracks and each track focused on a different alternative to the mental health system. The five tracks were Open Dialogue, The Sunrise Center ( a place for people who want to stop using psychiatric drugs), Soteria House, Peer-run Respite, Hearing Voices Network.  At the wrap up at the last day of the conference facilitators and experts provided a summary of each track. Below are the summaries of each track.

We are MFI



Levi Chambers: Young adult leader

Levi Chambers is a sociology student, organizer, and psychiatric survivor working toward mental health justice in Olympia, Washington. He said: "I am a member of MFI because the organization fights for my rights more effectively than groups with funding from big pharma. My family and I stopped supporting those groups, and have been MFI fans ever since." Levi believes in community mental support, non-pathological and non-chemical treatment alternatives, and declines to use psychiatric labels. Currently a 22-year-old college student involved in the Icarus Project and a member of MindFreedom International, Levi hopes to become a researcher who works to gain scientific acknowledgment for alternative recovery models. If you would like to work with Levi to fight discrimination, build alternatives to conventional psychiatry, and demand a non-violent revolution in mental health in Washington State, please contact him.
