Conference planners include Shaindl Diamond of the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education (OISE) and the Coalition Against Psychiatric Assault and Bonnie Burstow, a senior lecturer at OISE, a specialist in community organizing and marginalized populations and a self-described antipsychiatry activist.

Three years ago, Burstow announced plans to endow a scholarship funding research into homelessness and the belief that strong communities pulling together can do far more good than drug companies and psychiatrists advocating electroshock and pills.

PsychOUT hopes to provide a venue for those with alternative ideas to network and develop strategies that "promote empowerment and equality."
