Mission Statement

Mad in America’s mission is to serve as a catalyst for rethinking psychiatric care in the United States (and abroad). We believe that the current drug-based paradigm of care has failed our society, and that scientific research, as well as the lived experience of those who have been diagnosed with a psychiatric disorder, calls for profound change.


This is Really Happening: An Exchange on Life in Mental Health Services by Stephen McKenna Lawson & Anne E. Watmough

In this new series, two individuals – inspired by Asylum magazine but on ‘either side’ of the patient/professional divide – came together to exchange images (cartoons) and text (reflections) about what it feels like to experience mental health services.

The goal was collaboration. The process was joyful. The result was both art and alliance.

The Collaborators:

Images – Anne E Watmough (psychiatric survivor and cartoonist)

Text – Stephen McKenna Lawson (mental health nurse)
