The MPA (Mental Patients Association) was founded in 1971 as a grassroots response to deinstitutionalization and to a crisis in community mental health. Led by former patients and allies, the group initiated many successful social, housing, and employment projects, and in the process challenged the power of psychiatry. MPA left behind its radical roots to become an important service provider, however the story of its early years endures.
