Unexplained Removal of Vermont Psychiatric Survivors Director


Nancy Remsen discusses in the Burlington Free Press the unexplained removal of executive director Linda Corey after 15 years representing Vermont Psychiatric Survivors. Corey “has been a force — mostly out of the spotlight — pressuring the state’s mental-health system to seek and listen to the voices of those it was trying to help,” writes Remsen. Even though as recently as February a group of 17 mental-health organizations recognized Corey with an award for her long dedication “to give a voice to those who have had no voice,” Remsen writes that Corey is currently in hospital and will be removed from her position shortly for unexplained reasons.
