Several staff from MCIL met with Ray Sandford early in his campaign, in Fall 2008, to discuss his human rights concerns. Director David Hancox  appointed an informational liaison to the Ray Campaign, Julie Wegscheid.

On 27 April 2009 MCIL released a public statement about Ray.

MCIL public position on Ray Sandford's forced outpatient electroshock:


"MCIL is a consumer-directed Center for Independent Living. We support the right and desire of every individual with disability to live self-directed lives. We fully support Raymond's prerogative to refuse forced treatment, or treatment to which he has not given informed consent."


IMPORTANT NOTE: MindFreedom and Ray endorse nonviolence principles. Whether or not an individual or agency supports or opposes Ray's human rights, MindFreedom and Ray ask that any communication be civil.

Lynne Salvi, psychiatric survivor

Lynne M. Salvi [1963 - 2011] was an activist with MindFreedom Lane County. She experienced 24 years of human rights violations in the mental health system. Lynne said, "Since finding MindFreedom and becoming a member, my life changed dramatically. I found many people who understand through experience without words. MindFreedom feels like a reunion of family I never knew before. This connection and encouragement give me the courage to speak out. I am grateful to find myself using those painful experiences to help others. Today I am medication-free and psychiatrist-free for the first time." See "Related Content" below for writing by Lynne.
