Forced psychiatric drugging is on the rise in America. Find out why and what you can do to fight it!
Sophie Faught, MindFreedom Communications Director, talks about forced drugging in the psych system and the dangerous precedent of proposed legislation in Texas: HB 2212, which makes forced outpatient commitment possible in Texas.
Her feautured guest is Lise Zumwalt. Ms. Zumwalt has been making documentary films for 25 years for National Geographic Television, PBS, WNET, BBC, The History Channel and Discovery traveling from South Africa to the Baltic and from the Canadian Rockies to the South Side of Chicago. In every film, Ms. Zumwalt looks for the opportunity to reveal human character and gain insight into how public policy affects our lives. That's Crazy, Lise's first feature film documents one man's decision to take his treatment into his own hands, defying a commitment order and an order to treat while searching for recovery.
Sophie will also be joined by MindFreedom member Ryan, a survivor of outpatient forced drugging. He will lay out the threat to our liberties posed by the expansion of forced drugging laws in this special edition of MindFreedom Radio dedicated to the topic of forced outpatient drugging.

Feeble Minds: The Ghosts of Letchworth Village by Jason Stanton
In Feeble MInds: The Ghosts of Letchworth Village, Jason Stanton delivers a riveting tale of his years investigating an asylum in Rockland County, New York, active with the spirits of the dead tortured residents. With the help of a guardian spirt that leads him to safety, he faces menacing ghosts that wander the expanse of this institution closed down in 1996.
Jason diligently recreates the probable history and characters pieced together in his account of what life was like for residents and staff during the 1940's, including standard and experimental treatments for psychiatric disorders.
Take a walk through a frightening and mysterious building and cemetery where all that remains of the former residents are numbers on identical markers, and energy from the past wandering the rooms and hallways of a place that was so cruel to them in life.
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.
Today Nick & Dr. Joanna will be continuing the discussion on "Pharma to Dharma: From Pharmaceuticals Back to Nature" as it applies to the use of Hypnotherapy in place of, or to minimize the use of pharmaceuticals. The Wetsern model of quick fix medicine is just not working, for doctors and patients alike. Patients are finally realizing that the "quick fix" really isn't giving them the desired result or cure that they are looking for, and doctors are starting to feel that this is not the way to truly practice medicine so that healing on all levels can be invited to occur. Learn how hypnotherapy can be a very viable and safe approach to changing our consciousness to break thinking patterns that do not serve us.
Adverse Drug reactions are the 4th leading cause of death and pharmaceutical companies still continue to rake in billions by marketing and selling disease. How do they do that? By creating new diagnoses that fit into the effects of the drug that is already on the market, but that is usually close to patent expiration. This occurs particularly with psychotropics - drugs for anxiety, insomnia, depression and a variety of other psychiatric illnesses. Many people do not realize that sometimes the side effects of these drugs are exactly that which they are designed to treat. Find out how hypnotherapy can be used alone or to augment any other modality of healing in what promises to be a very interesting discussion.
Pharma to Dharma 4-hour Workshops on 17th & 21st May 2015 and will be offered regularly. See more on the Kalyana Centre homepage. Find us always at www.thekalyanacentre.com or Dr. Joanna at www.drjoannacarmichael.com or 484-412-8815.

Mary Diaz and Human Conflicts Org. demand is on air Fridays at 3pmEST. Call 347.857.3293 to join the discussion. We demand compassionate release for elderly and terminally ill prisoners and paroles for all inmates who served their minimum sentences unless parole boards prove that releasing such inmates would endanger the community. Taxpayers should not continue paying to warehouse rehabilitated inmates who have served their minimum sentences just to enrich private prison owners. Mentally ill prisoners should be transferred to mental hospitals and stabilized, then released under assisted outpatient treatment (AOT) programs that mandate their continued psychiatric treatment and provide them with subsistence assistance. Americans with mental disabilities should not be punished as criminals in the nation's prisons and jails where hundreds of thousands of them suffer in solitary confinement torture, deprived of visits with their families for years and some for decades. Human Conflicts Org. demands human rights for prisoners in the USA.
Power concedes nothing without a demand; it never has, and it never will. ~Frederick Douglass
