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.
