Zoloft isn’t just for depression any more; it also kills fungal meningitis. Researchers from Texas A&M find that “The problem for many current antifungal drugs is that many cannot go to the brain, and it’s very difficult for a lot of compounds to reach the brain in the first place … the point here is that if there is a drug that already exists, is known to be well-tolerated, and has alternative uses, that’s a good thing.”

Kermit Cole, MFT, founding editor of Mad in America, works in Santa Fe, New Mexico as a couples and family therapist. Inspired by Open Dialogue, he works as part of a team and consults with couples and families that have members identified as patients. His work in residential treatment — largely with severely traumatized and/or "psychotic" clients — led to an appreciation of the power and beauty of systemic philosophy and practice, as the alternative to the prevailing focus on individual pathology. A former film-maker, he has undergraduate and master's degrees in psychology from Harvard University, as well as an MFT degree from the Council for Relationships in Philadelphia. He is a doctoral candidate with the Taos Institute and the Free University of Brussels. You can reach him at [email protected]
