RLC in the News

As a community, we are always looking for opportunities to share the work we're doing, and sometimes we find success in print, on the radio or on television. In this section, we will share some of our successes and increasing awareness of the RLC and all we do!


Open Paradigm Project National Campaign, May 2013

On Sunday, May 19th (in conjunction with the protests of the American Psychiatric Association's gathering in California), the Open Paradigm Project launched a national campaign titled "Testimonials of Hope from People Who Rejected Psychiatric Diagnosis."  They launched the project with 18 videos of people from across the country.  Two of those people were Sean Donovan and Sera Davidow of the Western Mass Recovery Learning Community.  The Open Paradigm Project plans to continue to release about five videos per week moving forward, and several more of those videos will also feature people from the Western Mass RLC community.


You can View Sean and Sera's videos below or view the whole campaign by clicking here.
