Occupy the psychiatric industry!

Two special guests will be featured in this MindFreedom Live Free Web Radio, hosted by David Oaks:

  • cj lince has a unique approach to "Boycotting Normal" called the "People's DSM," turning the tables on psychiatric labeling. 
  • Erick Fabris is  psychiatric survivor and mad pride activist, author of a new book on the terrible phenomenon of forcibly drugging people living in their own homes, out in the community. His book: "Tranquil Prisons: Chemical Incarceration Under Community Treatment Orders."
  • Host David Oaks is a psychiatric survivor activist for the past 35 years, and director of MindFreedom International. He works with Occupy Eugene.

More info on CJ's project:

The People's DSM (also called Identities of Mentally Oppressed Kin or IMOK) is a project where psychiatric survivors reject outside labels and define ourselves however we see fit: a description, a story, a drawing... anything to express our identities without fear of ridicule or medical labeling. CJ coordinates MindFreedom Portland, Oregon.

More about Erick's book:

Erick is a psychiatric survivor, mad activist, and ethnographic writer. After being forcibly treated in Vancouver in 1993, he returned to Toronto, working with West End Psychiatric Survivors to initiate Canada’s first Survivor Pride Day. He soon began to advocate with the Queen Street Patients Council (later Outreach Society). Erick co-founded the No Force Coalition in Ontario in 1999.
