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.

Laura Delano - Psychiatric survivor blogger activist

Laura works as a peer specialist in the traditional mental health system and writes a blog at madinamerica.com, where she is sharing her story of recovery from psychiatry. After living with psychiatric labels for 13 years and taking psychotropic medications for ten of them, Laura says she found liberation in 2010 from her psychiatric diagnoses, from her reliance upon the mental health system, and from the once deep-seated belief that she was sentenced to a life-long "mental illness." Laura says, "I am proud to be a member of the MindFreedom International community for all MFI does to promote equality, justice, and civil rights for people who have been labeled 'mentally ill.'"
