Tune in live at www.blogtalkradio.com/davidwoaks, 2pm ET/11am PT.
Hundreds of mental health consumers and psychiatric survivors from all over the USA (and beyond!) gather every year for the Alternatives Conference to discuss peer-delivered services and alternative self-help/recovery methods. MindFreedom has a strong presence at this year’s conference — hosting a workshop on the cross-disability movement, filming I GOT BETTER videos, and sponsoring an electroshock protest/vigil. Join David and several other participating members LIVE on the air for updates on all of MindFreedom’s activities in Portland, and for an important discussion on moving mental health systems change forward!
WE INVITE YOU TO JOIN THE CONVERSATION:
How can we amp up the volume on our mental health activism? How can we bring about systems change and redirect public attention towards non-drug and non-oppressive alternatives to mainstream psychiatric treatments?
