SORT BY Relevancy
In coordination with Citizens Commission on Human Rights (cchr.org) we continue our expose' of the human rights violations conducted under the auspices of "mental health".
Ted Chabasinski is an attorney and human rights activist in Berkeley, California. In 1944, as a 6-year-old boy so intellectually gifted he jumped from first grade to third he was taken from his foster home in the Bronx to New York’s Bellevue Hospital where he was pronounced “schizophrenic”, because his mother had been labelled “schizophrenic”. There he began a series of 20 electro-convulsive shock treatments. The boy, Ted Chabasinski, was one of hundreds of children used in ECT experiments. Tests since condemned as barbaric. He remained an inmate in a state psychiatric hospital until the age of seventeen. Chabasinski survived and became active in the civil rights movement and ultimately an attorney.
In January 2007 Chabasinski acted as the attorney for the late psychiatric survivor activist and author Judi Chamberlain, the medical journalist and author of Mad in America and Anatomy of an Epidemic, Robert Whitaker, and the director of MindFreedom International David Oaks in opposing a motion by Eli Lilly to extend an injunction to conceal documents that revealed that the company had known for the previous decade of the potentially lethal effects of Zyprexa ( an antipsychotic )and had engaged in an illegal off-label marketing campaign.
As a patients’ rights lawyer, Chabasinski continues to champion human rights, and writes, speaks, and blogs on issues of individual rights and freedoms.
Most recently, he has organized an International Day of Protest Against Shock Treatment, being held on May 16, 2015. There will be demonstrations in many countries and cities around the world.

"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?

"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 in her paradigm-changing work, On Our Own: Patient-Controlled Alternatives to the Mental Health System. In this episode, we read Judi's work and offer a few reflections.
The alternative programs that form the subject of [On Our Own] are different because their underlying philosophy is different. Nonprofessional, client-controlled services don't divide people into 'sick' and 'well', 'helper' and 'helped.' They see every person as having a combination of strengths and weaknesses, and the need for help in one area does not negate the ability to help others also. But in order to achieve these ends, people have to recognize their own strengths and abilitities. They have to discover that sometimes there are no 'experts' to turn to. (On Our Own, p. 64).
[Host's comment: This episode is useful mostly for the re-introduction of Judi's work, which remains remarkable. The host commentary could stand for a good edit, which will happen - if ever - when time and energy permit.],
