News about changing mental health system in Oregon

Here's some of the latest news from MindFreedom Oregon, an affiliate of MindFreedom International based in Oregon, USA.

 In 1969, one of the first groups in this era led by survivors of abuse in the mental health system began right here in Oregon... MindFreedom International continues this tradition of activism!

Why Zero Gateway:

 

MindFreedom Oregon continues to ask the State of Oregon "Why Zero?" Why, even though budget cuts were not as bad as feared, why is Oregon one of the very few USA states to provide zero funding for the statewide voice of mental health consumers and psychiatric survivors?

Dave Romprey remembered!


30 July 2009 is the one year anniversary of the death of mental health consumer/psychiatric survivor advocate Dave Romprey. The next day will be a dedication of a bench, planting of a tree, and reception to remember him.

Go OCSC! State-wide coalition continues to organize.


The big news this past year in Oregon is that there is finally a great state-wide, diverse, inclusive coalition uniting more than a dozen groups run by mental health consumers and psychiatric survivors.

So far there's no funding, but that hasn't stopped the Oregon Consumer/Survivor Coalition (OCSC for short).

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.
