From the ISPS description: “The International Society for Psychological and Social Approaches to Psychosis brings together investigative journalist Rob Wipond, author of “Your Consent is Not Required,” Philip Yanos, PhD, professor, researcher, ACT team clinician, and author of “Written Off: Mental Health Stigma and the Loss of Human Potential,” along with Patrick Mureithi, a father, musician, and documentary filmmaker who will discuss his personal journey through self-medication, psychiatric abuse, and homelessness, and eventual recovery through spirituality, focus on physical health, and community support. In an era marked by increasing uses of coercive mental health laws, particularly concerning homelessness, our speakers will explore the alarming trends, challenges, and potential solutions from their unique vantage points. This webinar aims to challenge media and politically propagated stereotypes of unhoused individuals experiencing psychosis. Together, we’ll examine research, uncover truths, and explore effective approaches to support the hardest-to-house individuals in our communities. Join us for a thought-provoking discussion advocating for human rights, dignity, and compassionate care in mental health.” Watch the discussion here.
