About Alternative Mental Health Revolution:
This site was launched because I was becoming increasingly aware of how many people were suffering from the side effects of pharmaceutical medications and I wanted to do something about it. As a holistic mental health practitioner, suicide attempt survivor, and mental health advocate, I belong to several Facebook support groups. I was continually saddened and disheartened to witness the great number of people going through terrible withdrawals that lasted up to a year after discontinuing their psychiatric medications.
There were so many times that I wished I could shout from the root-tops to everyone considering taking psychiatric medication:
“There are so many EFFECTIVE alternatives that don’t cause side effects!”
So, this website is my attempt to shout from the root tops and raise awareness of the many effective options available to improve mental health outside of the mainstream medical model currently in place.
My vision for this site is that people will form a community so they can share stories and help each other heal. I hope this will site will empower people to try different natural health solutions and find those that work for them.
This site is not intended to be anti-psychiatry or anti-medication. While it does provide resources for tapering off medication if desired, the main focus is on what people CAN do to naturally improve their mental health.
In gratitude for your participation in this revolution,
