Science and Pseudoscience podcast

The Science and Pseudoscience of Mental Health podcast will explore insights and innovations from an integrative perspective. While calling out the toxic pseudoscience that pervades the mental health field, I will highlight the work of researchers and practitioners who embrace this holistic approach, with expertise in the science of epigenetics, the microbiome, early brain development, and planetary health. Each podcast will be accompanied by an article that amplifies the themes and explicates the science.

Let's Talk Withdrawal

Let’s Talk Withdrawal was started with a simple aim, to share lived experience accounts of psychiatric drug withdrawal and to provide interviews with experts in the field. Psychiatric drug withdrawal remains a largely hidden, seldom discussed issue, yet affects countless people. We aim to add to the discussion and debate. More information can be found here.
