Description

In the episode, "Mad Liberation, Disability Justice, and Indigenous Reclamation: An Interview with Vesper Moore: Part 1 (S3, E4), " Vesper dives into the discussion on the mental health industrial complex and the social justice movements that are  currently fighting it.  Mad liberation activist, trainer, writer, and psychiatric survivor, Vesper Moore is COO of Kiva Centers, a Peer Support community network serving as a crisis alternative, and has worked as a consultant for both the United States government and the United Nations in shaping strategies around trauma and mad and disability rights. In the episode, Vesper shares how oppressed people historically have been considered the "mad" to be contained, and how the very structure of capitalism only respects those in society who are able to work. Vesper is also the restorer of the historical archives of Madness Network News and shares how in 1984, the anti-psychiatry journal was thrown into the ocean.  Vesper also discusses the arrival of plant medicine onto the market of psychiatric therapy, and how its sacred essence  may be maintained if indigenous involvement in the infrastructure were central.
