In the episode, Alternatives to Psychiatry: Healing from Mental Distress with Chaya Grossberg (S2, E19), intuitive healer, author, and psych meds withdrawal counselor, Chaya Grossberg joins the conversation and shares her personal story of dropping out of the psychiatric system and choosing a new way. Driven by her own disabling experience as a young person forced to take psych meds, she made it her life mission to help others. Unconvinced of psychiatry's biomedical paradigm, she stopped taking the meds and became an impactful and well-known activist in the psychiatric survivor movement.
Gaining experience through organizations like the Freedom Center, which used alternative methods to treating mental distress such as peer support, she began consulting others searching for an alternative way. Her book, Freedom From Psychiatric Drugs, is an invaluable resource that offers a wealth of support from nutritional and herbal remedies to creative strategies, as well as a workbook companion for journal writing through the process.
