I would like to invite you read a great article entitled, The New Psychiatry, The rise of Natural Mental Health that you can find in the July/August of The Magazine “Psychotherapy Networker”. The article appearing on page 32 is the story of a Henry Emmons, MD who discovers a more holistic way to be a psychiatrist in the age of heavy psychopharmacology. It is very inspiring and gives me hope that my field of work, namely mental health, has some glimmer of hope. The author and practicing psychiatrist is not anti-medication, but has figured out how to use medications appropriately along with various holistic measures. I wish our whole system had the same philosphy. It is very consistent with the approach that is practiced where I work in Evanston, Heartwood Integrative Health and Healing. Google the magazine and enjoy!
