This is the public list of Sponsors and Affiliates that form a "Support Coalition" for MindFreedom International. A Sponsor is an already-existing organization that has joined the coalition. An Affiliate has requested or is in the process of requesting to use the MindFreedom name in organizing (e.g., MindFreedom Ireland). [Updated 29 June 2022]

Sponsors and Affiliates support the mission, goals and guidelines of MFI. Each has a Liaison on the MindFreedom Support Coalition International Advisory Council (IAC), which provides suggestions to the MFI Board about strategy and campaigns.

The below public directory of MFI Sponsors & Affiliates is updated regularly, but may have inaccuracies. If your group is not yet listed, or you spot an error, contact MFI at office(at)MindFreedom(dot)org.
