Mental Patients Liberation Alliance (The Alliance)

George Ebert 315-947-5888

The Mental Patients Liberation Alliance (The Alliance) will host its 32nd Annual Bastille Day event to celebrate the human spirit and break the silence about psychiatric oppression on July 13, 14, and 15 (Friday, Saturday, and Sunday) in Albany.

A peaceful educational vigil will begin at the New York State Office of Mental Health, 44 Holland Avenue, Albany, at noon on Friday.  People will have the opportunity to discuss the issue of state-sponsored organized psychiatry.  The focus will be on the mental illness industries’  devastating “medical model” that exclusively relies on – solely allows and most often forces – invasive dehumanizing, disabling, and potentially deadly drugs and Electro-Convulsive (ECT- Shock) treatments to address what are termed “mental illness” and “mental health issues” – on countless children, young people, and adults.

The public is also invited to an Open House at The Alliance Human Rights Action Center from 10 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. on Saturday, July 14 at 383 ½ Madison Avenue, Albany.  Presentations and conversations will focus on human rights protection for all people against psychiatric labeling and mistreatment, and spotlight the current “mental illness and behavioral health epidemic” that has spread across the United States.

A general members’ meeting will be held on Sunday, July 15 at 11:00 a.m. during the vigil on Holland Avenue.  All meetings are open to the public.

The Alliance – established in 1972 – is a self help, mutual support, and human rights organization of, by, and for people labeled as “mentally ill”.  Alliance members, their supporters, and concerned community members are connected to an international liberation movement.  The Alliance can be contacted toll free at 1-800-654-7227.
