PHOENIX RISING is published quarterly by On Our Own, a group of ex-psychiatric patients.

Abstract:  PHOENIX RISING is published quarterly by On Our Own, a group of ex-psychiatric patients. The purpose of the journal is "to speak out against psychiatric abuses, to advocate for the rights of psychiatric inmates, to encourage ex-inmate-controlled alternatives to traditional psychiatry, and to provide a forum where inmates and ex-inmates can share their experiences and opinions."
The April 1984 edition of PHOENIX RISING includes a 32-page supplement on Electroshock. It contains a history of electroshock from 1937 to the present, a brief and statements submitted to the City of Toronto Board of Health, an article on the use of shock treatment on the elderly, personal testimonies, and an analysis of a recent court case involving the involuntary use of shock treatment. Also listed are the names of Canadian psychiatrists who administer shock, as well as groups and individuals fighting its use.
