“To improve mental healthcare by forwarding an integrative, ‘wellness’ model, independent of special interests and lobbies. Integrative Mental Health considers and attends to biological issues, psychological and social problems, as well as the profound need for psycho-spiritual growth. Practitioners take a cautious approach to the use of psychiatric drugs.
We facilitate a greater understanding of the integrative model by showcasing prominent experts who give online presentations and courses. This empowers patients and their loved ones to make informed decisions about the full spectrum of effective options for care. We also provide a center for healthcare professionals (MDs, psychologists, therapists and nurses) to expand their knowledge and skills in integrative methods of diagnosis and care.”
Mad in America hosts blogs by a diverse group of writers. These posts are designed to serve as a public forum for a discussion—broadly speaking—of psychiatry and its treatments. The opinions expressed are the writers’ own.
