The ESCAPED GOAT
A national campaign committed to the reformation of psychological abuse laws in the United States of America.
To reform psychological abuse laws, educate Law Enforcement, and end the trauma/abuse cycle.
Join progressive European countries in reforming laws to criminalize psychological abuse tactics such as Coercive Control. In the U.S., psychological abuse is the only form of abuse which is not fully criminalized.
Embolden the legal system to create policies which acknowledge and reflect that mental and emotional trauma cause damage and injury the physical brain and lead to physical symptoms such as disease, disorders, and suicide.
Create a Call to Action through a national campaign
Encourage psychological abuse victims to vocalize and report abuse to authorities and the courts
Educate law enforcement in the area of psychological abuse
End arrests of actual victims who have been smeared, provoked, and wrongfully accused by psychological abusers
Hold Social Media platforms accountable for their contribution to the deterioration of mental health and the soaring rates of suicide by demanding regulation and accountability
Plan of Action
Compile unquestionable data which establishes the precedent that disease, suicide, PTSD and other ailments are physical "damages" suffered as a direct result of psychological abuse
Establish communication with proactive organizations in foreign countries which have successfully passed psychological abuse laws, leading to the education of law enforcement on the signs of psychological abuse and the tactics of psychological abusers
Lobby for reform at the city, states and federal levels
Unite narcissistic/psychological abuse coaches, therapists, and victims in order to organize for law reformation
Collaborate with attorneys whose experience in narcissistic & psychological abuse can lend expertise in the progression of the movement
Collect statistics, studies, and evidence of psychological abuse incidents, along with a close examination and critique of current psychological abuse laws, all which to build a comprehensive and compelling case for reform
Produce impactful social media content including PSA's and video books for placement on YouTube and Instagram
Create educational curriculum for law enforcement
Trauma is not
"Someone hurt my feelings."
It's a physical rewiring in the body that requires literal healing and rewiring -
as literal as the healing required for a broken bone.
Society recognizes the need for mental Health, yet perpetuates the deterioration of it via social media, cyber-bullying, glorifying celebrity, promoting “keeping up with the Jones, little to no paid vacation, constant use of electronics.’
Depression & Anxiety
The brain is a part of the body. It can be damaged by injury, trauma, & substance abuse.
Just like physical abuse.
Why does society & the legal system allow abusers to attack the brain & nervous system without consequences?
The Psychology arm of the Medical Complex recognizes personality disorders in the DSM.
It generates millions from “treating” those suffering with mental health disorders, many of whom are victims of a trauma/abuse cycle that involved mental abuse.
Society’s Approach to Mental Health
Medication Psychiatrists now only prescribe & maintain prescriptions.
Promotes mindfullness, yoga, meditation yet does not incorporate these practices into actual quantifiable treatments
Mental Abusers, especially psychopaths, sociopaths, and those with Narcissistic Personality Disorder, lack empathy. There is little to possibility to rehabilitate. The only way to protect or prevent further mental abuse is to prosecute mental abusers. Mental damage IS noticeable through changes in the behavior of the victim. While there may not be bruises or broken bones, mental abuse is an assault on the brain, the nervous system, and the physiology of a human. These aspects of mental abuse are more often than not, long-term.
They are not healed with a cast or physical therapy.

"A psychiatrist once remarked, "I consider pathology to be the country's number one public health issue." And with good reason -- these 60 million people are negatively (and sometimes criminally) impacted by someone else's extreme pathology (Otto Kernberg called this pathology 'Severe Personality Disorder’)"
