Coming off Psychiatric Drugs: A Harm Reduction Approach to Medication Withdrawal

A filmed workshop by MIA Blogger Will Hall that takes a harm reduction approach to coming off psychiatric drugs.  “How can anti-psychotics, anti-depressants, mood stabilizers, and other drugs be used wisely? What are the risks and benefits? How can we collaborate effectively with prescribers, and what about reducing and discontinuing medications? Come learn a pragmatic harm reduction approach that is neither pro- nor anti- medication, but instead based in mental diversity. Everyone is welcome: professionals, survivors, students, family, and anyone taking or not taking medications.”
