Mad Chicks

Mad Chicks is about women psychiatric patients and survivors of the psychiatric system, who are sick of being treated like crap and generally sidelined. It is put together by women who work as part of Mad Pride, a user-led mental health civil rights movement, committed to ending discrimination against psychiatric patients, promoting survivor equality and celebrating mad culture.
Mad Chicks believes that a women-focussed organisation and campaign can highlight issues with particular female resonance, such as mixed wards, childcare, assertiveness and rights, sexism in the NHS - and provide a more conducive space for women to discuss their experience of services. They draw on the considerable creativity already existing within Mad Pride and amongst its contacts and supporters, in order to show what extraordinary things female service users have done and are able to do in supportive environments and elsewhere.
