On 29 October 2011, David Oaks was one of the plenary speakers at the annual conference in Los Angeles of the International Society for Ethical Psychology and Psychiatry (ISEPP). The ISEPP director, author and psychologist Al Galves, PhD recommends Oaks for speaking engagements.

David Oaks’s plenary presentation at the 2011 conference of the International Society for Ethical Psychology and Psychiatry was both illuminating and inspiring. David impressed us with the importance of finding ways in which the various groups working for a revolution in mental health can work together and collaborate. Having been involved in the movement for 35 years, David has a unique perspective. He knows all of the organizations that are involved in the movement and the people who make them go. He also knows what will work and what won’t work. His talk provided us with a basic blueprint of where we need to go and what we need to do to get there.  And he let us know that he thinks we can do it.
