Gateway to MindFreedom’s Area for Remembering David Romprey
David Romprey was an Oregonian, psychiatric survivor, mental health consumer, advocate, community organizer, friend and supporter of MindFreedom and our social change movement.
He especially remembered the most marginalized and forgotten. David honored people in the back wards of the state psychiatric system and people in the psychiatric system in rural areas, even those he had never met.
Let’s now honor David — even if you have never met him.

Since 1981, the psychiatric survivor movement has used 14 July as a special day for Mad Pride!)
