The Practicing Mental Illness Newsletter


I have transitioned from this blog to a weekly newsletter and won't be posting new content here. The newsletter contains insightful news on how to predict, prevent and manage episodes of anxiety, depression and mania. It includes compelling and irreverent information on meditation and features from "Getting Older With Bipolar," as well as provocative original thoughts on the politics of mental illness and content on meaningful work.

Thanks for joining me on this journey on this blog, and please continue to travel with me as we approach mental illness from a unique, responsible and compassionate perspective.

Please have a look at and subscribe to the Practicing Mental Illness newsletter here.
