Dorothy Dundas

Dorothy Dundas is a psychiatric survivor and longtime advocate for those in the mental health system. Diagnosed with schizophrenia in her late teens, she received forced combined insulin/electroshock and neuroleptic drugs, yet she ultimately recovered fully - not because of, but in spite of those brutal "treatments."  Through a number of op-ed pieces and a poster she created from her hospital records (Behind Locked Doors), she has voiced her opposition to abusive psychiatric practices.  Dorothy lives in the Boston area, where she raised her four children and presently runs The Crystal Lake Express, a local car service.
