    Subject: [itheta-talk] Safe Harbor Receives $25,000 Grant to Assist County



    Safe Harbor, a Los Angeles-based nonprofit organization that educates the
    public on non-drug treatments for mental health problems, was recently
    awarded a $25,000 grant by The California Endowment to improve care in the
    Los Angeles County Mental Health system. The California Endowment is the
    state's largest health foundation.

    Earlier this year, Safe Harbor was the first to post on the Internet - at its
    site - a document called the Medical Evaluation
    Field Manual. The manual, written by Dr. Lorrin Koran of Stanford
    University, is the result of a study commissioned by the California State
    legislature in the 1980s.

    The study found that nearly half of the physical ailments of the county
    mental health clientele were being MISSED in physical exams and medical
    workups. Dr. Koran's team developed simple methods for dramatically
    improving the quality of exams with minimal cost increases, and their results
    were published in the Medical Evaluation FieldManual. However, the manual
    was never implemented.

    "Many mental problems are caused by treatable medical problems," said Dan
    Stradford, president and founder of Safe Harbor. If these medical problems
    can be spotted by proper physical exams, we can save a lot of people from
    spending a lifetime on psychiatric medication when they are, in reality,
    medically ill."

    The California Endowment has provided Safe Harbor with a $25,000 grant to
    work up a plan on how the Medical Evaluation Field Manual can be implemented
    in Los Angeles County.

    "This is a wonderful opportunity for us and the county. We are very grateful
    for The California Endowment's support," said Stradford. "Not only will
    improved exams get patients correctly diagnosed, but they will no doubt save
    lives for those who have life-threatening ailments that, in the past, might
    have been missed. This project fully aligns with Safe Harbor's mission of
    improving the quality of life and helping to reduce the unnecessary use of
    psychiatric medication whenever possible."

    Safe Harbor was founded in 1998 by Stradford, a retired corporate executive,
    who, as a child, saw his father decline rapidly after treatment with
    electroshock therapy and heavy drugs, causing the family to fall into
    poverty. The group's web site,, is the largest
    of its kind inthe world.

    How is this group related to Scientology? Is it related at all?

    Created by and run by scios.

    I'm an ex-scio and was going thru some old emails and came across it. They used to send emails around on all the scio email lists.

    I checked on WWP and no one else had posted it. So I did.

    For those who don't know, Safe Harbor uses a previous show Montel did as part of our "ADD" seminars to educate people about nondrug alternatives.
    For more info on Safe Harbor, please go to Alternative Mental Health.

    Well, iThetans - The Montel Williams Show "A Parent's Right to Choose" sent a powerful message to TV audiences across the nation. One hour of perfectly orchestrated testimony and exposé, and no psych invited to "defend".

    Attached is a set of images that I shot off the TV as it the show was running. The principal guests for our cause were Bruce Wiseman, U.S.
    President of CCHR, Juliette Lewis, actor and activist, Catherine Bell, actor, Ann Archer, actor and Dr. Ann Block, writer of "No More ADHD".

    The dialog was clear and no-holds barred in the message sent: Schools are illegally forcing children onto drugs stronger than cocaine, there is no such illness as ADHD and no test is ever made to prove the illness. Psychs are the biggest drug pushers in the world... Montel was on our side for sure!

    I do hope this will air again! If anyone has found an e-mail address for Montel Williams so we can flood him with our appreciation, please post it!
    me. Thank you!
