In the presentation, author of Freedom From Psychiatric Drugs, Chaya Grossberg, will discuss her work consulting with people
coming off psychiatric drugs, what helps them the most, and her other experience working with people in withdrawal from psych meds.
She will share wisdom gained from 15 years of professional experience working non-medically with people seeking a variety of
alternatives to the mainstream psychiatric paradigm. She will also share from her personal experience of having withdrawn from psychiatric meds herself. There will be time for Q and A so bring your questions.
Chaya Grossberg is a writer, teacher, coach and group facilitator living in Western MA. She consults
with individuals and families seeking alternatives to psychiatric drugs and/or to come off of them safely.
She has been working as an activist for change in the mental health system and provided holistic mental health alternatives for the past 15 years, starting as a Freedom Center organizer for six years in Northampton, Massachusetts. She has worked with the Western Massachusetts Recovery Learning Community, Massachusetts PAIMI council, Windhorse Associates, Alternative to Meds Center, Mental Health Association of San Francisco, Mental Health Association of Portland, and Portland Hearing Voices.

She advocates for increased options, support and safe spaces for people seeking alternatives to psychiatric drugs.
