Chaya Grossberg will be joining us on Thursday, May 22, 2014 to discuss this article: http://chayagrossberg.weebly.com/blog/the-two-choices-doctors-have-for-a-sane-person-in-a-mental-hospital

Chaya stated: "Preventing involuntary outpatient commitment can be tackled at different levels, all of which change the cultural narratives we hear. Most states already have IOC laws that go by different names in each state. We need to address the laws, public perception, and most of all to equate funding for non-violent alternatives since we all know, deep down, medicine should not be harmful, damaging or life destroying. It should not isolate us, make us permanently numb, sick, or stupid and it certainly should not make us die early or become violent or suicidal, all of which psychiatric pharmaceuticals do regularly."
