Coming Off Psych Drugs: A Meeting of the Minds

Coming Off Psych Drugs is a 2013 film by Daniel Mackler.  You can purchase the film here to help sustain Mad in America and Daniel’s work, or you can watch it for free online.  “In June of 2012, twenty-three people came together to discuss the subject of coming off psychiatric drugs. We were psychiatric survivors, therapists, mental health consumers, family members, and activists, united by a passion for truth-telling. More than half of us had successfully come off psych drugs, including cocktails of antipsychotics and mood stabilizers. What resulted from our three-day gathering was an unforgettable meeting of the minds.”
