NAMI-WATCH: Monitor cover-ups and scandals in the National Alliance for the Mentally Ill (NAMI).
The National Alliance for the Mentally Ill (NAMI) says it is the "Nation's Voice on Mental Illness."
However.... The organization itself is currently deeply troubled, plagued by scandals and cover-ups.
Here are links to a few of the disturbances facing NAMI today:

* NAMI Blacklist
 http://www.MindFreedom.org/mindfreedom/blacklist.shtml
- The NAMI policy director admits NAMI is now asking the Bush Administration to "terminate federal funding" to certain psychiatric survivor organizations.

* NAMI Psychiatric Drug Company Funding
 http://www.MindFreedom.org/mindfreedom/news/slush.shtml
- NAMI has a policy of keeping the millions of dollars it receives from the psychiatric drug company funding secret. But they didn't count on a whistleblower working in their midst, photocopying documents.... NAMI's campaign for the flawed Program for Assertive Community Treatment is funded by the psychiatric drug industry.

* NAMI Glue Scandal
 http://www.MindFreedom.org/mindfreedom/news/glue.shtml
- When the editor of a NAMI-California journal questioned the official ideology, the journal was cancelled, he was fired, and articles in thousands of copies of the journal were glued shut.

* NAMI-Oregon  http://www.MindFreedom.org/mindfreedom/namicensored_b.shtml - The interview NAMI doesn't want you to see.

Do you define lobbying to pass laws providing for the forcible drugging of the psychiatrically labeled in their own homes, or generally seeking to increase the use of violence and coercion in the "mental health" industry to be "improving the quality of services"?

Services to whom? The drug manufacturers who bankroll NAMI?

If so, then

Dude, what have you been smoking, and where can I get some?
