Agreed. I also am very inspired about the POD model of care. I am a Retired Family Physician from Canada who happened to experience a Psychotic Episode in 2012, fairly late in my life. I felt it was more of a Spiritual Emergency. There was no room for my views within the Traditional Biomedical Model of care that I received. Each of 3 involuntary hospitalizations have earned a Story that I share on my Blog. A dark chapter in my life but full of growth and learning. As you can imagine, I have thought a lot about the Mental Healthcare System. Just last month I wrote in my style about the wonderful POD model. As a Doctor, as a Patient, also a Medium, this Model is an Epic Upgrade. Compassionate and Heart Open. Valuing a positive therapeutic alliance. Without this, it cannot really be called care but control and authority. http://disabledangel.ca/?p=4161 Thank you for writing!
