    MadU with hosts Sarah Knutson and Lauren Tenney: Right to Be Human

    in Education

    Tonight on Mad U @ 9-11 PM Eastern - Right To Be Human!   Thursday, 4/30 with hosts Sarah Knutson and Lauren Tenney. To listen, call: (267) 521-0167 (press 1 or *1 to talk) or click, http://www.blogtalkradio.com/talkwithtenney/2015/04/30/mad-u-with-hosts-sarah-knutson-and-lauren-tenney. We live in a world that thinks human rights end where psychiatry begins. But which came first, the deprivation or the diagnosis? In 1948, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights recognized that every human being needs certain fundamental protections in order to live, develop and thrive as a member of the human community. In 2006, the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities applied these same protections to psycho-social disabilities. So.... What protections do we need as human beings? What affect does this have on mental well-being? What happens if we live our lives unprotected? How good is our society at looking out for us? What is the effect of being repeatedly violated or disregarded as a human being? Is psychiatry selling us a bill of goods that's distracting from the real issues? Why are we treating individuals if our whole society is sick? Would we better off focusing on human rights recovery than mental health recovery?

    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?

    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.
