A call to share your story

I came across the below post at the memoryartist's blog, Why can't the past just die? I think, this is an important opportunity to draw attention to the situation of users, ex-users and survivors of the mental health system, violations of human rights in the system, and the need for change.

"Share your story with the incoming Obama administration

President-Elect Obama has setup a new webpage where people can write in and share their story. Every person with a psychiatric disability has a stake in this. We need to keep our issues open and in the forefront so they don’t get lost.

Please forward this to any person with a disability or a list of people with disabilities you know and encourage them to write in. You do have to give your full contact information. This is a great opportunity for us all."
