The reaction to recent events involving gun violence has been an alarming rush to enact laws promoting “Psychiatric Profiling”. These laws would restrict the rights of people diagnosed with mental illness and force them to endure harmful, counterproductive, psychiatric interventions.
National Day of Action to Stop Mental Health Profiling
On Martin Luther King Day, January 21, 2013, people everywhere are invited to hold demonstrations, vigils, and any other nonviolent acts of expression and protest. The purpose is to inform the public about the dangers of psychiatric profiling and to gather solidarity.
