And @Registered Member the work, analysis, research continues from Phoenix Rising ashes in multiple venues, including eenetconnect.
Mad in America’s mission is to serve as a catalyst for rethinking psychiatric care in the United States (and abroad).

This is Really Happening: An Exchange on Life in Mental Health Services by Stephen McKenna Lawson & Anne E. Watmough
In this new series, two individuals – inspired by Asylum magazine but on ‘either side’ of the patient/professional divide – came together to exchange images (cartoons) and text (reflections) about what it feels like to experience mental health services.
The goal was collaboration. The process was joyful. The result was both art and alliance.

Text – Stephen McKenna Lawson (mental health nurse)
