    Dr. Olson I wanted to say thank you and your team for caring enough to want to be a part of this very important research. I am a mother whose perfectly healthy son had a psychotic break at seventeen (he is now 26). This experience was the most gut wrenching, heart breaking to the point that the pain was so great it was as if a sword by- passed my heart and pierced the inner depths of my soul. From the very first day I have been searching for ways to help my son find wholeness again. I quit a 17 year career and gave up a mortgage company I owned for 9 years to go to school. I have since attained my BS in psychology and I am currently in the clinical nutrition (functional medicine)program at the University of Bridgeport. Modern day psychology failed us miserably! And after 23 psychotropic drugs (that did not work) and 8 hospitalizations that was one dead end after another we decided to throw in the towel. This was not only a life changer for my son, but one for every member of our immediate family. I happened upon open dialogue and after all of the research I’ve done on it I am very thankful that you all are taking the initiative to research and hopefully implement this dialogue technique. It has been on my heart to start a nonprofit, which I plan on doing this year in the hopes that I can actually open a facility within the next 3-5 years to offer open dialogue as one of our services.
    Sincerely,
