I thought I would let you all know that I am now a blogger on the Mad in America site. My plan is to still post everything I write here, but then to also post some articles there (the ones that fit the criteria that Robert Whitaker created for that site.)
I made my first post today, and on it I described my life story as it led to my becoming a mental health activist, as well as some ideas about how to go about being an activist – see
http://www.madinamerica.com/2012/02/personal-steps-toward-a-revolution-in-mental-health-care/. Or you can find the same article on this site at http://recoveryfromschizophrenia.org/about-ron-unger/personal-steps-toward-a-revolution-in-mental-health-care/
It was kind of fun to write the story, even if it was very condensed version! I hope you all enjoy it.
