Curing Normality: The Mental Health Revolution.
A talk with David Oaks of MindFreedom International.
March 4th, 2011, 7PM. At the Capitol Theater in Olympia, Washington, USA.
Presented by BRICK and co-sponsored by the Evergreen Icarus Project.
For too long people with mental illness labels have suffered human rights violations. With virtually no due process, anyone can be labeled “abnormal” and detained indefinitely, and even forcibly drugged or administered ECT. David Oaks, founder of MindFreedom International, has been working since 1976 to protect the rights of psychiatric patients around the world. His story explains how a small group of activists with little money survived against pharmaceutical corporations, and gives vision for a better future.
