Review for Law Project For Psychiatric Rights Inc, Anchorage, AK, USA
I am a clinical and research psychologist currently at Harvard University and have spent more than a quarter of a century doing research and public education about the many serious problems in the traditional mental health system. PsychRights is irreplaceable and has led the way in activism to improve conditions for those who have been psychiatrically diagnosed, so that they cannot be compelled to take psychiatric drugs. This struggle has become even more compelling now that information about the dangers of these drugs has increasingly (in no small part also due to PsychRights) come to light.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
...providing both information about dangers of drugs and inspiration to psychiatric survivors who do not want to be forced to take them.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Make it bigger, open one in every region of the U.S.
