“I want my husband to be home for the holidays…”For many, this season will be remembered as a time of hopelessness and fear. Now is the ideal time to make a statement against forced and coerced psychiatry by supporting MindFreedom International efforts to support psychiatric survivors and their loved ones through a donation or gift membership.
“I want my husband to be home for the holidays…”
This member shared this hope with MFI staff while issuing an Shield Alert on behalf of her husband, who had been committed against his will for nearly two years.
They have been married 18 years, but this year, they will not be spending the holidays together.
As a MindFreedom member, your support allows MFI to advocate for freedom and choice in the mental health system in these situations.
And if we don’t, who will?

For many, this season will be remembered as a hopeless time of involuntary detention in psychiatric facilities or ‘drug-induced incarceration,’ where they may be present in person but are mentally imprisoned in another world.
We need your to show support now to ensure that we can continue our programs, such as the Shield, that promote liberty and human rights.
Your tax-deductible donation will directly support our efforts, such as the Relatives and Allies of Psychiatric Survivors (RAPS) initiative, that empower loved ones of survivors to speak out for deep change.
Now is the ideal time to make a statement against forced and coerced psychiatry by supporting MindFreedom International.
We think the members helped would agree: If a loved one in the mental health system is abused, we are all abused.
You can also donate in honor or memory of someone special.
Your gift of $20, $35, $50, $100, or $500 will not only have significance for the your giftee. It will give psychiatric survivors, loved ones, and allies the opportunity to advocate for truth, justice, and choice in the mental health system.
This month is MFI’s 25th anniversary, making this a perfect time to give. Your end-of-year donation is tax-deductible, and you’ll be a member for the whole 2012 year.
