Resistance Matters by Don Weitz
I am a lifelong antipsychiatry and social justice activist. In 1977, with survivors Harvey (‘Alf’) Jackson and Bob Carson, I co-founded On Our Own, Ontario’s first self-help organization of psychiatric survivors. Three years later, with lawyer and electroshock survivor Carla McKague, I co-founded the antipsychiatry magazine Phoenix Rising: The Voice of the Psychiatrized (1980- 1990).
My new book, edited by Irit Shimrat, is Resistance Matters: The Radical Vision of an Antipsychiatry Activist. Here is my contact information.
