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.

First involuntarily institutionalized, at 15, Lauren Tenney is a survivor of psychiatry. She has been involved with the user and survivor movement since 1992. Her goal is to help stop forced psychiatric procedures, detainment, and confinement, human rights violations, psychiatric abuse and torture. Of particular concern are the elimination of forced electroconvulsive treatment (ECT) on people of all ages, but particularly children and senior citizens, forced drugging, restraints, seclusion, behavioral interventions, and coercion of any kind. Lauren, a Mad-Activist/ Artist/ Author/ Academic/ Adjunct Professor is coordinating The Opal Project, an outcome of participatory action research she coordinated for field research in the PhD program in Environmental Psychology at the Graduate Center, CUNY. Her dissertation topic is: "The Institutionalized "Community." She became involved with WE THE PEOPLE when the Law Project for Psychiatric Rights and MindFreedom International needed someone on the ground in Brooklyn, New York to coordinate a response where Esmin Green was murdered-by-neglect. She now lives in Albany, NY with her service dog-in-training and cat. For more info: www.TheOpalProject.org and www.etrash.tv
