5. Congress of the European Network of (ex-) Users and Survivors of Psychiatry
(A joined congress of ENUSP and the World Network of Users and Survivors of Psychiatry – WNUSP):

"Networking for our Human Rights and Dignity". July 17 – 21, 2004 in Vejle (Denmark), Idrætshøjskole
German | back to Vejle-Index



We express our deep sorrow at the loss of our dear friend Loren Mosher.

Loren cared passionately about our human rights, our freedom, and our ability to lead self-determined lives.

His pioneering work at Soteria House proved that humane, non-medical support is the best way to help people undergoing severe emotional distress.

His bravery in publicly resigning from the American Psychiatric Association called to public attention the way in which Big Pharma and bio-psychiatry have allowed profits to overrule human needs.

Loren's warmth and caring touch so many of our lives, and he will be deeply missed.

On behalf of WNUSP / ENUSP
Regards, Judi Chamberlin & Peter Lehmann
