Collection Description & Arrangement
The bulk of these papers (6 boxes, 3 linear ft., plus some oversize materials) relate to the work and organization of the Geneva Initiative on Psychiatry (GIP), an international nonprofit organization established in 1980 to eradicate the political abuse of psychiatry, mainly in the Soviet Union and Romania. Over the years the GIP extended his reach and worked for the “reform and humanization of the entire mental health care in Central and Eastern Europe.” Professor Bonnie, who worked with the GIP since the beginning, was part of the Board of Directors. After the collapse of the Soviet Union in 2005, the GIP was renamed Global Initiative on Psychiatry.
The collection also includes files on China’s Mental Health Reform, the World Psychiatric Association China’s Mission, some Czech and Serbia’s files related to mental health and the Scottish Law Commission.
In addition there are IOM (Institute of Medicine) files regarding Bonnie’s work on the Committee on Improving Health, Safety and Well-being of Young Adults and the Committee on Health Implications of Raising the Minimum Age for Purchasing Tobacco Products; National Advisory Council on Drug Abuse file regarding the marketing of Opium Perfume; State of Virginia files related to mental health, and Bonnie's activities files.
|Donor Information||Prof. Bonnie donated these files in May of 2015.|
