I think people who don't pretend to be experts are the best people - so often I've come across people telling me what I'm doing wrong and what would "fix" me. They seem to think they know more about my life than I do.

Victoria BC is talking about peer ride alongs with the police but they would still defer to the police. Better than nothing, I guess.

@Francesca that is so true.

"Peer" is a creepy word to me,

Cherene, How did you recruit your staff at startup to ensure they were psychiatric survivors?
Nze Okoronta
24:16
Thank you for speaking about psych survivorship <3 so important and a piece of our history that is often forgotten
Jacek (Jack) Haciak
24:35
Thank you so much Abbe for interpreting your responsibilities in the way you do. We Peers all need to share in that interpretation.
Mia Mantri
25:24
This is brilliant - I've always been afraid of police so non-police would have made me a lot more likely to reach out.

Greetings Everyone, I am the Chair of the NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Illness) Peer Leadership Council. If there is anything that we do to continue or efforts in helping better the lives of those with lived experience of a mental health condition please feel free to reach out. Peer Support and the Peer Voice are valuable. blessed_highly_favored01@yahoo.com
Diane Banks
26:00
@Mia yes ma’am I can relate.
Francesca Simpson
26:08
Recently in Victoria BC there was a man experiencing a mental health episode. The police showed up in an armored vehicle. They broke 3 windows and threw tear gas in. While this was happening,, a neighbour was screaming that the man was not dangerous, just experiencing a crisis. Poor man, must have been terrified!
Francesca Simpson
26:49
See robwipond.com re: 988 rollout.
Jeremy - CAFE TAC
26:59
That is the exact thing we need to avoid, Francesca.

Law enforcement is trained to use force and escalate, so that's what they do
Nze Okoronta
28:54
Yes, mobile crisis teams are also coercive and in my city are employing "peers" / mental health technicians and causing a lot of moral injury because it puts peers in ethical dilemmas and turns them into tools for systems we are working so hard to challenge.
Diane Banks
29:23
@Fransesca that is so sad but unfortunately it was not the first time and in my opinion, I believe 988 will make those horrible instances decrease and allow people to get the proper help they need without trauma.
Felice Eliscu
30:17
coercion is not consent

There was another episode in the east where a mother phoned 911 because her daughter was experiencing a crisis. Six, SIX, officers showed up. She was so frightened she jumped from her balcony to her death. Heartbreaking.
Nze Okoronta
31:58
Yes, NAMI has a history of furthering police agendas at least in my state (WI).
Jacek (Jack) Haciak
32:13
In fact, our own Oregon "model" mobile crisis team via "CAHOOTS" does not itself require that a Peer Specialist be a member. A few of us together with Mind Freedom International have talked with them and encouraged them to include that specific role. In fairness, CAHOOTS has identified several of their team members as having lived experience backgrounds, but their roles are not openly identified as being Peer values-based.
CAROLYN GREEN

I have lived experience.
Felice Eliscu

Wisconsin will kill you, no lie.
sam plover
35:13
Obviously a LOT of people think that a crisis, or emotional overload is no longer a normal part of being human, and so, we can no longer sob, yell, or break down under loads. No longer grieve, tear up, laugh too much, etc etc etc
Diane Banks
35:57
@Sam and Nze I am interested in knowing why you both feel that why. If there are instances or examples that you can send my why I would love to bring them up to new leadership. As an 18 year Army Veteran with lived experience of a mental health condition I am interested in seeing what we can do to improve so please feel free to email me the examples and how we can reach ot to reply. blessed_highly_favored01@yahoo.com

There's a difference between forced hospitalization and forced treatment. In Ontario, only the former is possible.
Mia Mantri
36:44
I intentionally kept my suicidal thoughts to myself during my breakdown because I was afraid of being strip searched. The fear of that happening put my life at risk. I needed somewhere I knew that wouldn't happen.
Jacek (Jack) Haciak
37:11
Some NAMI state or city chapters do support Recovery Principles well. It would be good if the national NAMI positions would stop supporting outpatient commitment and false concepts like "anosognosia." As a retired psychologist specializing in brain injury assessment and treatment, anososgnosia is NOT the lack of awareness that NAMI and Amador Javier have tried to portray it. In fact, Dr. Amador is now using the term "lack of awareness" publicly to fall into line with evidence-based research and clinical standards.
Jim Gottstein
37:17
I agree with everything you said about Crisis Now. Alaska is planning on implementing it and I am working on getting other alternatives available.
myrna dukes
37:29
yes
Francesca Simpson
37:56
We're so lucky to have you, Jim!
Nze Okoronta
38:03
@Diane Banks, the NAMI conference I attended in my state recently had a police officer as the main keynote.... Lol that's why I feel that way. The officer was touting all the work WI has done with police to "help" mental health advocates by training officers. It was a joke. So frustrating to listen to.
myrna dukes
38:15
wow
Francesca Simpson
38:42
This is so disturbing.
Nze Okoronta
38:48
Indeed.
Felice Eliscu

NAMI and MHA are mostly funded by BIG PHARMA

My 12 yr old grandchild was handcuffed a month ago when she said she was considering suicide due to trauma. The IVC'd and transported via police car, handcuffed 2 1/2 hours to in patient facility.
Jacek (Jack) Haciak
39:24
Exactly Felice!
Francesca Simpson
39:37
Was there an inquiry re: Daniel Prude?
Phillip Williams-Cooke
40:08
To me, this and other horrific incidents like Daniel Prude, George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and Deborah Danner are more than disturbing.
sam plover
40:13
Dianne, I think this information presented here is a good place to learn of what not to do, but I know that NAMI would never operate within these visions. NAMI is a huge non help to try and get away from the LENS of everything being PSYCHIATRIC.
Felice Eliscu
41:03
F**k NAMI
Francesca Simpson
41:05
Got to say the police in Victoria BC have always treated me well, no doubt due to my position of privilege: white, middle-age and middle-class.
myrna dukes
41:56
yes in school
Stan Rossowski
42:34
Toronto's police chief just made a big apology. Toronto police own data shows BIPOC people are 1.6x as likely to be stopped, carded, arrested, whatever. When that woman fell to her death evading the police who were there "to help" her there was a big outcry, then nothing. People are not believing the chief, no one is accountable, no sign of real change. The problem is much bigger. It is iatrogenic to the whole neo-liberal capitalist and colonialist society we have created. Change required is way upstream of the "mental health industry" of which peer support is becoming part of.
myrna dukes
42:40
yes
Phillip Williams-Cooke
42:50
I remember the girl was crying and asking the officers why she is being placed in handcuffs. Very terrible!!
Michelle Miller
43:21
My 29yo son is in a hospital now. Police picked him up 2 weeks ago he was delusional. he has been living off and on streets in Dallas since Oct 2021 I have had to evict him due to him bring homeless people into my home, I currently do not live at my home due to safety. Selling it. I live with a friend now. My question is he will be released from hospital and has no place to go except be on streets again. He will not survive homeless. Does anyone have suggestion about how I can help him find a place to live.

I always hate the way the term "threat" is used when talking about suicide.

Diane Banks
44:51
@Nze not sure which conference that was as I was just assigned as the Chair on yesterday. 😊However, I can relate to it being hard to listen to as I was not at that conference. I am currently working on my dissertation to complete my Doctoral Degree in Forensic Psychology on “Hostility, Justice, and Unity: A Study on Race and Policing” that has an emphasis on Mental Health. What let me there is my very own experience of incarceration and being involuntary hospitalized which is why I am so passionate about bringing change so please feel free to send me any information. I am not here to sell NAMI but to see how collaboration and partnership can improve these sad situations. blessed_highly_favored01@yahoo.com

Francesca Simpson
48:03
This study does not surprise me. Not at all.
sam plover
48:43
Dianne, it is harmful to a person, to make them believe they are ill. Tired of pretending we can make a phony and broken narrative, better. Read Sammi Tamimmi on MIA. He says you can't fix a rotten system, and he';s a shrink

Eamonn, this is Cherene Caraco presenting.
Sarah Smith
50:03
Jacek, I just expressed the same opinion to Drake Eubank and members of the FreeDavid social media team. We need data for better infographics. We have the artists but we lack research stats
Francesca Simpson
50:03
There's not just voluntary vs. involuntary status. There is also "voluntary but scared."

I agree, Jim. Not sure that feature can be activated mid-presentation.

I would like to ask Cherene for a roadmap for activists in other states on how to obtain involuntary treament and outcomes data for our state (Oregon)

NM I see Oregon Involuntary outcomes
Sarah Smith
54:17
this is an excellent presentation. I hit the wall emotionally being involved in the movement for 12 years to end force and coercion in the mental health system (I identify as the mother of a psych survivor who didn't feel at home with NAMI because of their lack of commitment to human rights) and I had nearly given up out of despar thinking that my efforts and the efforts of others haven't resulted in any meaninful change in our community but this series has lifted my hopes and renewed my commitment to activism. Thank you Cherene. If you could do this much good in SC, then we can do it here in Oregon!!
Diane Banks
54:32
@Jack , Sam, and Nze I appreciate your feedback.
Stan Rossowski

It is the "partnership" that is problematic.

I am from western NC. We have people wanting to develop peer services. Some of us are also active NAMI members.
Jacek (Jack) Haciak
57:58
I agree with you, Diane, about a potential for sharing with NAMI around our common interests since I have seen local chapters do it. However, it will take, IMHO, national NAMI shifting gears in major ways to accomplish what a few local chapters have done.
Diane Banks
58:52
@Mary Ann feel free to reach out to me I have several emails to organizations within NC that maybe of interest and help to you. blessed_highly_favored01@yahoo.com
Nze Okoronta

59:55
Thank You Nze I sent you one as well.
Jacek (Jack) Haciak
01:00:55
I am embarrassed that I came to this webinar from a conference where "Abbe" was presenting on a similar topic, and referred to Cherene
Jacek (Jack) Haciak
01:01:12
s great presentation as being done by "Abbe."

01:01:14

Sarah Smith
01:01:56
Blessed are the peacemakers and the diplomats, especially psych survivors who patiently to educate NAMI family members and leaders about the traumatizing nature of force and coercion. NAMI endorsed the expansion of force and coersion by endoring the CURES bill. I'm not cut out for that work of workign with NAMI but I appreciate those who are!!
Diane Banks
01:02:49
@Michelle I am in El Paso and along with the work I do with NAMI, I am affiliated with the National Association of Peers will be having a conference in Dallas. Feel free to reach to me.
Sarah Smith
01:03:40
Will a recording of this be made available to activists? Can I post it on our website as a resource for our members, many of whom are in the backwards
Jacek (Jack) Haciak
01:03:55
Maintaining those important boundaries are emotionally draining at times, Sarah, particularly when so many are survivors of the trauma-producing system "interventions" that NAMI supports.
Mary Ann Widenhouse
01:04:00
NAMI has a program called Help Not handcuffs. So how does this play into the discussion about NAMI?
Diane Banks
01:04:05
@ Sarah thank you for that information, every organization is not for everyone and I truly appreciate your powerful statement.
CAROLYN GREEN
01:04:38
Sarah, do you have a link I can use to see about CURES bill?
Francesca Simpson
01:04:39
Great name, Mary Ann.
Diane Banks
01:05:09
@Mary Ann yes it does and it is a powerful program that started out in Florida I believe that we are putting on a National platform.
Felice Eliscu
01:06:12
"Help" is not helpful
sam plover
01:06:12
Please don't tell people they are MI. How awful to live your whole life believing what you feel is an "illness" and that you are sick in your head. It';s a horrible thing to do to people
Jacek (Jack) Haciak
01:06:27
Avoiding police handcuffs is one thing, but substituting non-police while sending folks off to involuntary treatment/medication as the answer for "what is best for them" is not acceptable either.
Sarah Smith
01:06:33
As I stated, NAMI supported national legislation to expand the use of force and coercion by providing block grants to states that implement AOT! I'm furious that NAMI members don't even know this. This is why I am not cut out to work with NAMI, the ignorance of their own organization's positions is too draining for me to deal with in addition to supporting my daughter whose life was nearly destroyed by psyhiatric 'treatment' by force

The police started it in Washington state in my case. Handcuffed yet not arrested. For driving squirrelly on private property sleep deprived and fumbling over my words. Taken Tom The ER and grated as a subhuman put in restraints for 8 hours out of 9 hours in ER. It was ugly and violent

01:10:22
Just an fyi. When I realized that my challenging feelings and subsequent actions were related to something was going on in my brain, it was such a relief. So the biological factor was so very helpful to me. I stopped blaming myself and thinking I am a somehow defective person.
Diane Banks
01:11:16
Sarah I would love to talk to you, not to get you to work with NAMI but to see how I can help bring change with the valid topics you brought up. If not that is fine but I really would like to further this conversation to see if there is anything that I can do to bring about a change blessed_highly_favored01@yahoo.com
Francesca Simpson
01:11:23
Have to go now. Thank you Cherene et al. See you next Thursday!
CAROLYN GREEN
01:12:04
Thank you Cherene for sharing and speaking truth again today.
Sarah Smith
01:12:37
Mary Ann, Mindfreedom supports your right to perceive yourself as having a disease and seeking psychiatric interventions to help your brain function better as you see fit. We are not trying to take away your right to access services which you find helpful! But we are opposed to forcing all people into a one size fits all box and subjecting them to forced drugging/shock by force! People should have choices, real choices and options!!
Sarah Smith
01:13:40
Mary Ann, please support my daughters right to seek peer support or a drug free, non force options as I support your rights to seek psychiatric care!!!

@Stan that CURES is frightening....
Sarah Smith
01:16:03
Diane, I want your email but I'm not sure if you spelled it correctly? My email is sarah@mindfreedom.org. I am difficult to talk to because I feel so passionately that psychiatry harmed my daughter and I'm not willing to water down my truth for the sake of diplomacy. But I am willing to try to be civil and open and have a dialogue.
sam plover
01:16:39
Mary Ann, of course your brain thinks, feels, reacts. It is NOT a defect, therefor it does not need to be named a biological illness. But if you find relief in believing in your brain being ill, after all, it's another belief
Eamonn
01:16:48
fantastic presentation Cherene, please send slides and info please . yamonn56@gmail.com
Sarah Smith
01:17:59
Geo location is flat out wrong!!
Sarah Smith
01:18:43
This is contrary to common sense A 988 operator can ASK "where do you live or where do you want to receive services. Duh
Stan Rossowski
01:18:58
Yes it is, Felice. More frightening: have you heard Thomas Insell's recent talk drawn from his book. Apparently since drugs didn't work, big tech is here to help. There will be an app soon to "fix" us.

@Sarah I completely understand I have lost a brother to suicide and I have been through a journey of trauma that involved involuntary commitment and incarceration. They only difference with me is I turned my pain into purpose so trust me I want the complete truth and I believe in keeping it 100. So I understand passion and I believe there is away to communicate with being respectful and keep it real I will email you now and we can set up a time to converse. 😊

Thank you for validating my perspective. NAMI invalidated my perspective but I understand that not all NAMI members have the same perspective
Diane Banks
01:24:09
Thank you NAMI and I look forward to chatting with you as well. I humbly apologize for anyone to include NAMI members that made you feel invalidated.
Mia Mantri
01:24:41
Ironically I feel a lot more represented by you because though we may be our own people you recognise that and are willing to listen unlike a lot of people and organisations who just talk over our lived experience.
Diane Banks
01:24:44
@Stan thank you!
Sarah Smith
01:24:51
NAMI should have more peers in key leadership roes. 51% board formula would be a good start, then swear off funding from big Pharma Good goD this is so basic. Would climate activists accept money from big Oil?
Jeremy - CAFE TAC
01:24:56
211 is basically a number people can call to access social service resources.
yulia mikhailova
01:25:37
Not sure how it works - copying and pasting my questions from Q&A: Later today, I will have a meeting at my college about a fresh Check Day planned for Fall 2022. It is organized by the Jordan Porco Foundation. The materials about this event that we were sent have some good aspects, but they also encourage students to call a 988 if they think someone is suicidal. I will raise my concerns about this part, but I am generally considering how to proceed with my reaction to this event in my college. Does anyone know anything about Fresh Check Day and Jordan Porco? I would appreciate any advice
Sarah Smith
01:25:40
I was in despair before attending this webinar. Now I am feeling more hope.
Diane Banks
01:25:58
@Sarah that is on my list…I absolutely agree! We will discuss that when we chat.
Sarah Smith
01:27:00
I personally witnessed my daughter in five point restraints while in a private hospital This is seriously traumatizing and disempowering for a parent. As parents, we are traumatized by the treatment of our children!!
sam plover
01:27:01
I guess My wondering is this. If I'm in crisis do I want to call NAMI who thinks my state of experience is a defect in my brain, or this specific warm line, where it might save me from some more trauma, and might make me feel non defective in my brain.
yulia mikhailova
01:27:09
Of course, people directly impacted are not funded by pharma companies - we don't have this level of resources
myrna dukes
01:27:24
yes
Diane Banks
01:30:07
@Sarah my apologies, I meat thank you and I look forward to chatting with you as well.
sam plover
01:30:49
Perfectly said Cherene. Be transparent.
Mia Mantri

Yes, I once called 999 for an ambulance after some friends took an overdose just to get them treatment for the overdose but the call handler called the police and they went to their home and they broke the door down. I didn't know the police were going to be involved.

Abolish geo location. It is sneaky and erodes trust in the very people whose trust is critical for follow up treatment with providers to be effective.

Why can't 988 operators simply ask callers "where do you live?" or where do you want to receive services?" If the callers doesn't want to disclose location information, that should be honored. Basic stuff. DUH

People should also be warned about risk of suicide after MH involvement or prescribed drugs. I have known quite a few people that are now gone. IN MOST instances they were on psych drugs, no one ever investigates whether they were on them or in withdrawal phase.

@Sam that is so true I actually was in that number, where my medication caused the action, that led me to incarceration. That is something that is so needed.

Lets not forget that suicide is the number one cause of death for law enforcement. Although COVID has been more over the last few years.
