Honestly folks. Click this link and sign the damn thing. It takes about one minute.
Please let me watch my stats jump on clicks out to this link. I can’t imagine what’s stopping you.
From the petition site:
Ray is a 55-year-old Minnesota resident who is regularly receiving “Involuntary Outpatient Maintenance Electroshock.”
Involuntary outpatient electroshock (IOE) is part of a trend to bring the power of forced psychiatric procedures out into the community.
Your home is no longer your castle… it can become your ward. For example, most USA states have quietly passed laws allowing individuals living at home to be court ordered to take powerful psychiatric drugs against their will. It was only a matter of time until such outpatient coercion included electroshock.
Electroshock itself has made a comeback throughout the USA, and internationally, without adequate human rights protection.
Ray is receiving so-called “maintenance” ongoing weekly electroshock over his expressed wishes while living at home. Falsely believing “new improved” electroshock is safe, the mental health system is at times administering more than 100 “maintenance” electroshocks to a single individual over months and years.
This could happen to Ray. Even his mother, who is a retired nurse who used to administer involuntary electroshocks back in the 1950’s, is concerned by the sheer number of forced shocks he has received.
This could happen to anyone.
This could happen to you or a loved one.
The mental health system today has a lot of “buzz words” like empowerment, self-determination, advocacy, recovery, peer support, transformation, consumer-run, trauma-informed care.
How real are buzz words, when Ray Sandford gets forced outpatient electroshock each week?
