Michael Wilusz: Coming of Age on Psych Drugs

Michael Wilusz discusses his experience struggling with emotional distress, the ensuing regimen of psychiatric drug treatment, and his process tapering off of the drugs. Michael is a graduate of Salve Regina University and a practicing nurse. He sat down with the Open Paradigm Project on a shoot organized at Another Way in Montpelier, Vermont. Another Way is a community space which serves as a “voluntary alternative to conventional mental health services rooted in community, advocacy, and empowerment”. This is latest in a series of testimonials featured on MadInAmerica.com produced by the “Open Paradigm Project”
