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.

"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.

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?

Missed the time when there was information regarding taxes? For these special shows, Ms. Computer Lady will bring to you from now until that day of the tax deadline the replay of the interview with the Founder and one of her cousins, Ms. Regina Page.
Preparation for tax season for many includes dealing with tax extensions. What's difficult is knowing the updates from one tax season to another. Understanding the technology of it all can also present problems.
Ms. Page outlined what was new as far as taxes were concerned, what information was needed regarding amended taxes, extensions, etc., and what all from the individual to small business owners, to corporations needed to do DIFFERENTLY for tax extensions and its technology.
Review these great bits of info when you come to the Ms. Computer Lady Show for not only Saturday. The replays will also be on later Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, AND ON TAX DAY WEDNESDAY.
Lessons from feminism in an era of inter-oppression. There are many parallels between women and madness, including our rise and fall as people's self-determination movements. Significantly, activists in both groups started out meeting in each others' homes, talking separatism, liberation and consciousness-raising. Both had visions of a new world order that turned existing power relations on their heads. Now both groups are funded, organized, integrated and professional. Yet, the world, for most of us, is still the largely same. So what happened? How come so many of us still feel oppressed?
