Submit a Psych Fact
Please use the form below to contribute your psych fact.
Each psych fact = one main idea or datapoint from a study — therefore, one published study may produce multiple psych facts, one for each of the “outcomes” we want to represent in the database. For example, one study shows that peer support increases/ better promotes hope than treatment-as-usual, and it also shows that it decreases the number of days of hospitalization — these would be 2 separate psych facts from the same study.
The key is to keep your psych fact very simple thematically, with just one easy-to-understand piece of data.

The PsychFacts Database is a project of MindFreedom International.
MindFreedom International is a 100% independent nonprofit (that means no money from governments, religions, or pharmaceutical companies!) UNITED to win human rights and alternatives in the mental health system. MindFreedom is for voice and choice — voice of people on the receiving end of mental health care, and a range of choices in treatment.
Through programs like the Shield Campaign, MindFreedom works to protect the human rights of any individual confined or drugged in the mental health system against their will.
