Thank you for your comments, Dr. Shipko. I’ve worked with Beverly and know Mickey well. I am now editing the footage of the Fast for Freedom into a series of short videos to be made available on the website of the Los Angeles County Dept. of Mental Health. Having watched the footage many times now, I knew and appreciated your support of the strikers’ efforts to be heard. I’ve recently found a few things that suggest there may be greater awareness of the issues: http://lareviewofbooks.org/review/delusions-of-progress-psychiatrys-diagnostic-manual Also, there was a review of a new book by a woman psychiatrist in last Sunday’s L.A. Times which chronicled her growing awareness of the inability of the system to help her patients. I hope to show you the videos when they are done.
