Target demographics: victims of high-control organizations; religious or political; learn to live with joy in this world, not bondage.

Direct beneficiaries per year: 120

Someone who had 3 hours of volunteer time could: We need good, short reviews of Freeminds on various key networking and business sites.

Geographic areas served: International

Programs: Our main goal is to recover the mental health of former members of high-control religious groups, through education online and interacting with other people seeking the same.


We are people from across the world standing up for humanity and human rights. We expose spiritual abuse from high control religious groups, particularly Jehovah''s Witnesses, whatever their claims to higher authority may be. Our purpose is educate the public about such movements, provide an online support network where everyone is welcome to contribute and to enable a safe non-judgmental place for people to find healing and comfort and the community of their fellows.

We are a global online network with independence from government, corporate, national and organised religious interests.

Our vision is of a world in which every person - regardless of race, religion, gender, sexuality or ethnicity - enjoys all of the human rights enshrined in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and other international human rights standards, specifically with regard to freedom of religion.

We invite you to join our online community - to take action and to stop high control groups from ruining lives. This means new fresh content every day from the cult awareness community. We welcome the input of all for publication.

The people now working with us are volunteers, with a common goal in mind, and that is to create a heterogeneous  "congregation." That being an online community comprised of former cult members covering the full spectrum of religiosity and spirituality. This is a cooperative effort of equals and any departure will not be viewed personally. It will especially feature all things important to helping the Jehovah''s Witness exit the Watchtower Society as painlessly as possible, if that is their wish, and to provide them with a supermarket of future options. There is somewhere else to go!  It is a loose-knit cooperative, begun initially through a small circle of friends.

Freeminds.org and its 13seconds section is spending $10,000 in 2012 to accomplish this. We have $3000 so far... we need $8000 more to fully complete it. Plus, help is free.

I used to be a JW also, was raised a witness and about 20 years ago quit going because a lot of the stuff they were teaching was not right, especially the 1914 end time prophecy. If I give my Ex husband credit for anything it would be questioning some of the JW's beliefs and it got me thinking, I ... more »
I was raised a 3rd generation JW and never even thought to question the doctrines I was taught. Depression brought my life down from my mid 30s. When I needed support the most I was disfellowshipped and forced out of my family. Pretty much hit rock bottom and started to search for the real truth. ... more »
I became a JW when I was 19. I continued with it for just over 27 years, but was never truly happy and had many years on anti depressants. When I realised that I was not the only person to feel the way I did and had same concerns as many others this organisation gave me the tools and understanding ... more »
