Help save the children from abusive homes and schooling, bring the people who control this before the courts to face the punishment they so much deserve.

My letter to Social Services
Mark Levine is hosting another radio show dedicated to survivors of institutional abuse tonight, 7-10pm ET (6-9 pm CT, 5-8 pm MT, 4-7 pm PT).
The show will be permanently housed here: http://marklevine.tv/torture-in-america-kids-abused-in-treatment-centers-speak-out
NUMBERS TO CALL:
Please spread the word!
Tips from Mark Levine:
Survivors of CURRENTLY EXISTING programs will be given preference when calling in.
The trick to getting on the air is to call in early in the show and to be willing to be on hold for a long time until I finally get to you. (You hear the show in the telephone while you’re on hold.)
Mark is a fantastic host, he has been incredibly kind and supportive. If you missed his past shows on this subject, here they are:

From Mark Levine (the original post with info on how to listen online is here: http://opliberation.tumblr.com/post/14477763353/radio-show-exposing-the-horrors-of-the-troubled-teen):
To the entire “survivor of abuse at teen-residential-centers” community:
I have decided to postpone my show, originally scheduled for December 29, two more weeks to Friday January 13, 2012, 7-10 pm ET.
I apologize for any inconvenience caused and I realize folks will have to send corrections to their lists. The reason is simple: the week between Xmas and New Year’s is a bad time to try to get guests to speak on air (particularly those I want to get — current teens who are in, or just out of, these programs). I think I will get a better cross-section of participants and listeners if I put off the show for two months. I will do it then. Thank you everyone for understanding.
For those that are superstitious, Friday the 13th will be a day to remember all the lives that have been forever marred (or even lost!) by these abusive centers. For those that believe that good fortune can stem from adversity, Friday the 13th will be an easy day to remember and pass on the word so that we have a big audience for the show.
Universal Health Services, UHS, is the scariest of them all. They are by far the biggest abusers. They are known more for their neglect than brainwashing, but kids have died, been raped, drugged & otherwise harmed at their facilities in the name of increasing profits.
They are a huge company with $5.5 billion in revenue last year and 430,000 patients. They are going around the country, buying up all the other smaller residential centers and adding it to their corporate evilness. They are growing and spreading.
UHS makes most of it’s money being a placement of last resort to the public sector. In many communities across America, UHS is the only game in town for acute psychiatric ‘care’. Their model isn’t built on brainwashing or abuse as much as it is on corporate profits that lead to poor quality of care, although they do have some facilities that brainwash & torture. Some of their institutions have triple-dipped Medicaid, others will admit foster kids who have no mental health problems (but they will when they get out).
Long list of abuses, just skimming this will make you freak out: http://www.psychcrime.org/articles/Universal_Health_Services_Profits_Over_Patients.html
