MindFreedom International News Release
Submissions invited for: Global Mental Health Empowerment Handbook
MFI is creating a Handbook that encourages the voice of people diagnosed with psychiatric and other mental disabilities. Submissions are welcomed from anywhere, especially from poor and developing countries. The Handbook seeks to empower mental health system users, consumers and survivors so that they may be heard more effectively by their communities, care providers, and policy makers.
The MFI Handbook, with support from the international development organization CBM, also aims to inspire the reader to become involved in organizing, taking ownership of their organizations and using the framework of the disability movement. MFI will print thousands of copies of the Handbook in English, Spanish, Portuguese, French, Arabic, and accessible formats.
