Your flyering can lead to some great conversations.

So each and every myth-busting fact in the MindFreedom Truth Brochure is documented.

Isn't it time all mental health agencies back up their own statements in the same way?



Creative ways to administer your Truth Injection:

  • hand out at your local mental health system
  • insert in literature racks at your library or community center
  • give to friends, relatives, students, colleagues
  • and much more!


You can even make this into a poster! Just place the two pages on top of one another to create a neat 11 x 17 inch poster for bulletin boards!

MindFreedom also has bundles of these brochures printed, folded and ready to go. Just provide a donation for printing/postage and we'll postal mail you as many as we can for that amount. Let us know your donation is for "Truth Brochures" and we'll send them right out.

Lauren Tenney, psychiatric survivor activist from New York State

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: and
