On June 24, MindFreedom International hosted an webinar entitled Voice for Choices: Organizing to End Forced Psychiatric Treatment. 

 

This webinar was made possible with generous support from the Foundation for Excellence in Mental Health Care (FEMHC) as a part of MindFreedom's  “Voices for Choices” project to train psychiatric survivors, family members, and allies to advocate effectively for choices and alternatives in the mental health system.

 

 

In this webinar, the first of a series, panelists David Oaks, Jim Gottstein, and Emily Cutler presented an overview of the psychiatric survivor’s movement, the rewards and challenges of activism, and strategies for uniting and going forward to end forced treatment.

Leah Harris

Leah Harris, a second generation psychiatric survivor, discovered MindFreedom in 2000 when she was 25 years old. Her first act in the mad movement was to tell her story of oppression and resistance, and to help edit stories for MindFreedom's Oral History Project. Since then, she has been working in various ways to help achieve the vision of MindFreedom: an end to all forms of psychiatric oppression, healing of all forms of "normality," and the creation of vibrant, colorful communities that honor and celebrate diversity, difference, and the full range of human experience.
