Mad in America: Rethinking Mental Health
Author: Mad in AmericaSubscribed: 967Played: 28,240
This podcast is part of Mad in America’s mission to serve as a catalyst for rethinking psychiatric care. We believe that the current drug-based paradigm of care has failed our society and that scientific research, as well as the lived experience of those who have been diagnosed with a psychiatric disorder, calls for profound change.
On the podcast we have interviews with experts and those with lived experience of the psychiatric system. Thank you for joining us as we discuss the many issues around rethinking psychiatric care around the world.

This is a very heartfelt and informative interview. Lindsay, I truly appreciate you sharing your story.
THANK U SOO MUCH FOR THE GREAT TIPS!
I agree! we cannot even get disability for mental health because the lack of proof is nill but, they can label us with a chemical imbalance with 0 evidence?
Episode 91 is the first of this significant collection that I listened to. I found the podcast based on personal research suggestions from my new psychiatrist who, along with my new psychotherapist coincidentally, seems to approach my psychiatric problems similar to what Episode 91 suggests. I am finally beginning to PROCESS my issues rather than just take meds to try and mute them while keeping me numb, unfocused, and confused. Thank you for this podcast.
THANK YOU for sharing your story! There are few real stories of tapering off SSRIs after long time use. I am starting to go off 200 mg and found this to be super helpful. Sending love and light ❤
