David W. Oaks is Helping MindFreedom Build Affiliates & Sponsors.

For 25 years I worked as Executive Director of MindFreedom International, one of the main independent nonprofit coalitions for human rights & mental health.

In 2012, I experienced a major accident requiring my retirement. Now I am assisting MindFreedom to build their Support Coalition of Affiliates & Sponsors. As a consultant, I am reporting to the wonderful current Executive Director of MFI, psychiatric survivor Ron Bassman.

To be clear & refresh everyone's memory, an "Affiliate" is a regional group that uses the MindFreedom name such as MindFreedom Ireland or MindFreedom Ghana. A "Sponsor" is a group that uses their own name and endorses MFI, such as Disability Rights International, PsychRights or Gesundheit! Institute.

As of August 2021, MFI now has a third way for a group to connect to MFI's Support Coalition: Campaign Action Team (CAT). This is a group of members that wishes to work together on a campaign such as Shield or electroshock human rights violations, etc.

Please take a moment to fill out this survey.

Whatever your level of past or future interest reply now. WE NEED TO HEAR FROM YOU! THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT & URGENT!

Your responses will be kept private & confidential. Any questions please just email me at revolution@aciu.info or phone me at 514-914-1469, my consulting business Aciu Institute.

Again, whether you are new to this field and MFI, or an experienced activist, we want to hear from you. There are no obligations or expectations by filling out this brief survey.

We will email survey takers more info about MFI Affiliate and Sponsor building.

Together let us do all we can to build this crucial network for MindFreedom International!

In Support,
David
