National Association for Rights Protection and Advocacy

Chaya Grossberg

Chaya Grossberg has worked with Freedom Center Northampton for the past six years to provide alternatives, support, education and advocacy to those who have not been satisfied with their treatment from mainstream services. Chaya has taught yoga and meditation, led writing groups, written, published and performed poetry and articles and given many talks at conferences. Chaya is a psychiatric survivor and brings a passionate, sometimes emphatic approach to activism for social change. She also takes a spiritual leaning and knows that part of her path is to reveal the many lies that make up the current mental health system, and replace them with the truth using language that gives hope and possibility.
