Reminder: Inspiration, Hope, and Healing: Psychiatric Drug Withdrawal Success Stories
Mad In America x IIPDW Virtual Event
Forgive me for missing our usual newsletter. This week, I relocated to Brooklyn for a few months for some book-related work and as a team of one, there are only so many hours in the day. Given that ChatGPT is not witty or nuanced enough to write my newsletters for me, something had to give. I’ll be back soon with all sorts of things, including the results of my GeneSight genetic testing as outlined in Issue 100.
In the meantime, I invite you all to attend the May 11 virtual event on Inspiration, Hope, and Healing: Psychiatric Drug Withdrawal Success Stories hosted by Mad In America and the International Institute fo Psychiatric Drug Withdrawal.
Details and sign up info below!
