LEONARD ROY FRANK (U.S.A) - Electroshock Survivor and Editor
Anti-psychiatry activist Mr. Frank edited the best-selling Random House Webster's Quotationary in 1998 and
The History of Shock Treatment in 1978. Active in the psychiatric survivors movement since 1972,
he is a member of MindFreedom International, a coalition of more than 100 grassroots groups working
for human rights in psychiatry, and also The Coalition for the Abolition of Electroshock in Texas.
"In 1963 I was forced to endure 85 shock procedures, 50 insulincomas and 35 electroshocks.
As a result, my memory for the three most recent years of my life was obliterated".
"The brain is a terrible thing to damage, and brain damage is electroshock’s bottom line.
The surest indicator of this brain damage is memory loss which is practically universal among survivors".
“ELECTROSHOCK IS A CRIME AGAINST HUMANITY AND IT MUST BE BANNED UNIVERSALLY NOW”
