Research Studies Recruiting Participants

MIA Survey on Involuntary/Assisted Outpatient Treatment

MIA is conducting a survey of people who have experienced an involuntary or assisted outpatient treatment order. The survey takes 10 minutes to complete.

MOMS (Movement of Mothers/others Standing Up Together) and Rethinking Psychiatry Survey

Survey Link: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/SC2QMN6

MOMS (Movement of Mothers/others Standing up Together) and Rethinking Psychiatry advocate for person-centered, comprehensive solutions. The people most impacted by the mental health system must have a critical, influential, ongoing  say in the design and decision-making process. These solutions must center on the voices of individuals impacted, and organizations made up of people with lived experience. We believe that this is a vital part of  long-term recovery.

If you have experienced involuntary hospitalization, we want to hear about your experiences. This is why we are conducting this survey – to give a voice to those who have been directly impacted by involuntary hospitalization. We will be using a summary of the survey results in our work to advocate for alternatives to hospitalization.  

In 2018,  the educational site Mad in America did a survey of approximately 500 people throughout the nation about their prior experience with psychiatric hospitalization.

With permission from Robert Whitaker of Mad in America, we are using the same survey, tailored to WA and OR.

This survey is anonymous and confidential. As MIA did, we will publish the summary of our results and may share comments anonymously. If you do not want your comment shared please tell us that in the comments.
