Mad Pride is an annual worldwide celebration of psychiatric patient/survivor culture and resistance to coercive psychiatry. It's actually celebrated in July, but there's no reason we can't do it now! With the recent attention in Chicago to corporate globalization, people need to know that psychiatry is teaming up with the World Bank, World Health Organization, and drug companies to push the US's mental "health" system around the globe. Learn about and speak up for alternatives!
