Misinformation about electroshock is being delivered to the public. David Healy, psychiatrist and a writer on Mad in America, also co-authored a book supporting electroshock. Shock survivors want to hear Healy's defense. They say the dangers of his pro-shock position include people voluntarily getting it based on his word that brain damage from electroshock is an "urban myth" (which Breggin M. D., pointed out in HuffPost 2012). Shock survivors demonstrate the ways in which they have been damaged and present evidence from studies validating those damages. To many in the survivor movement, it is starting to feel Healy, like psychiatry itself, is a hidden danger, acting as an ally, supposedly anti-drug, he has long had the support of the movement. Shock survivors want to know: Do you know David Healy supports electroshock? Call in live: (267)521-0167
Jason Kalendek, a 43 year old shock survivor,who had been on psych drugs for more than 20 years was conned into getting electroshock as a way to get off the drugs. Electroshock destroyed his working memory and caused amnesia; destroyed his art career. The shock was 5 years ago and he is barely able to survive, the trauma of it is the worst thing that has ever happened to him.
Marie Jones, 49, lost all of her autobiographical memory due to electroshock without informed consent, which she was subject to while going cold turkey from Klonopin.
Tony Buonfiglio is a 61 year old electroshock survivor and photojournalist who was subjected to shock at 16 years old. He never regained memories of his childhood and continues to struggle with long term and short term memory loss.
Kim Wood is 57 years old and on SSDI for over 6 years after 16 years of psych meds. After 18 electroshocks, 2009-2010, her 26 year nursing career was destroyed.
Invited: David Healy, Peter Breggin; Ginger Breggin, Robert Whitaker, Bonnie Burtsow

He received his psychiatric training at the Upstate Medical Center in Syracuse, where his mentor was Professor Thomas Szasz, MD. . . . His interest then turned to a synthesis of Western psychology and Buddhist psychology, the result of which was the publication of a triology of books on the subject: The Happiness Project (1996), Vinegar into Honey (2006), and Engagements With The World (2013). In 2001, Ron Leifer was awarded the “Thomas Szasz Award for Outstanding Contributions to the Cause of Civil Liberties” (Professional Category)"

On June 26, 2014 from 8 - 10 PM Eastern, tune in to the Talk with Tenney show for a lively conversation shining light on psychiatry and efforts to resist against it, in Canada and across the world. Dr. Bonnie Burstow's work over the years on exposing the abuse and torture people -- particularly women --have endured at the hands of psychiatry is expansive, and dates back decades. Her work on exposing electroshock as a crime against humanity needs attention. You can call in (267) 521 - 0167 to discuss the fight against psychiatry, the battle in academia, being silenced and obstructed, and strategic activism. Different efforts Dr. Burstow has been involved in including Psychiatry Disrupted, Psychiatry Interrogated, and Psychiatry and the Business of Madness will be at hand.
Dr. Bonnie Burstow is a faculty member at Ontario Institute for Studies in Education at University of Toronto and a very long time antipsychiatry activist (approximately 35 years) . She is also a feminist therapist, a prison abolitionist, a left wing anarchist, and a prolific author. Examples of organizations and events which she has chaired over the years include: the Ontario Coalition Against Electroshock, Resistance Against Psychiatry, Coalition Against Psychiatric Assault, and the first PsychOut Conference. Examples of her publications are Radical Feminist Therapy: Working in the Context of Violence, Shrink Resistant (co-edited with Don Weitz); A Rose By Any Other Name: Naming and the Battle Against Psychiatry (in Mad Matters) and the much anticipated, soon to be released anthology of which she is first editor, Psychiatry Disrupted. (McGill/Queen's University Press).

State-Sponsored Organized Psychiatric Industries are with state-sanction power violating our human, constitutional and civil rights. The (p)harmaceutical industry is profiting in the billions, annually. The tax-payers are paying enormously. People's lives are being stolen from them, as they are held in slavery, abused, tortured, and murdered.
