I co-founded the Law Project for Psychiatric Rights (PsychRights) to address the complete failure of the legal system in the United States to protect the rights of people to decline to take counterproductive, harmful, psychiatric drugs, especially the neuroleptics (misbranded as "antipsychotics") such as Seroquel, Zyprexa, Risperdal, Abilify and Haldol.

Based in Alaska where I am able to bring litigation, PsychRights has had a significant impact. It has also helped people in other states, but not having any lawyers available to bring suits in other states has hampered these efforts.
