    MadU: with hosts Sarah Knutson and Lauren Tenney: An Evening with Pat Risser

    in Current Events

    Tonight on Mad U – 9-11 PM EASTERN. An Evening with Pat Risser. Pat Risser has been a psych rights activist and advocate for nearly 3 decades. His journey from childhood trauma/ abuse to mental health system trauma/ abuse to peer-supported recovery, healing and wholeness is powerful and compelling. In this episode, Pat will take us on a tour of his life, his work, his writing and his webpage. He’ll share his experience of what helped, what didn’t, where we’ve come as a movement, what needs to change, and how we can go about getting there.


    From Pat: "I had been brainwashed by the psychiatric system to be hopeless, helpless and overly dependent. So now I've dedicated the greater part of my life to try and reach people who are currently affected by the system and deprogram them from the cult of psychiatry."


    About Pat: Pat is a semi-retired, award-winning Mental Health Consultant who provides training and workshops for consumers/survivors throughout the country. Pat has extensive experience as an author trainer, facilitator, presenter and consultant. He’s been a human rights activist, mental health advocate and trauma champion for over twenty-five years. Pat has built and directed a statewide consumer network, directed a patients' rights program and developed countless self-help, peer support groups. Pat entered the mental health system at age 21. He survived over 20 hospitalizations for a raft of purported diagnosis entitling him to a boatload of pyschiatric drugs, none of which helped. He brings perspectives as a consumer/survivor, professional provider, administrator and family member.

    Holy Nation Church & Rev. Russell Moore : A Dog And His Vomit

    in Religion

    Sometimes the very things you hate and try to get rid of are the things that you eventually return to.  Isaiah 55:7 Let the wicked forsake their ways and  the unrighteous their thoughts. Let them turn to the Lord that he may have mercy on them yes, turn to our God, for he will forgive generously.  Acts 8;22 Repent of this wickedness and pray to the Lord in the hope that he may forgive you for having such a thought in your heart.

    Mad U with hosts Sarah Knutson and Lauren Tenney

    in Education

    4/2/15, 9-11 PM Estern Talk with hosts Sarah Knutson and  Lauren Tenney. Be part of the program, call: (267)521-0167


    "The barriers to change in the mental health system are enormous." These words are as true today as when they were written nearly 40 years ago by Judi Chamberlin (1978) in her paradigm-changing work, On Our Own: Patient-Controlled Alternatives to the Mental Health System. In this episode of Mad U, we explore and reflect together on some of Judi's core ideas.


    Course Reading:


    Chamberlin, J. (1998). Confessions of a noncompliant patient. Journal of Psychosocial Nursing, 36, 49-52. http://www.power2u.org/articles/recovery/confessions.html.


    Chamberlin, J. (1990). The ex-patients’ movement: Where we’ve been and where we’re going. The Journal of Mind and Behavior, 11, 323-336. http://www.power2u.org/articles/history-project/ex-patients.html


    Questions for reflection: Judi calls the ex-patients movement a 'liberation struggle of oppressed people' - what does that mean to you? Have you ever been called non-compliant by the mental health system? Have you ever felt pressure to comply? How did that impact you? Your relationships? Your feelings about the system? What role is there, if any, for compliance/ noncompliance in a human rights informed society? When if ever, should one person be allowed to substitute their judgment (reality) for someone else's? What concerns motivated the early ex-patient's movement? How did those concerns inform the values of the ex-patients movement? Where do you see those same values present today in how ...we treat each other as individuals? we advocate for society to treat us? we organize together to serve our communities? Where and why have we lost sight of these values? What, if anything, should we do about that?
