Has psychiatric diagnosis changed your life? How? Has it helped or harmed? Your host is psychiatric survivor Julie Greene, who was a mental patient for over three decades, but is now living freely in her community enjoying life as a non-patient. What do you enjoy about having a diagnosis? What are the advantages? Do you feel that diagnosis has harmed you, and why? Has it helped?

If you wish to listen, you can do so on the web, or call in using a landline or cellular telephone. Charges may or may not apply. Some may be able to call from outside the USA. You may speak to the host by pressing 1 on your handset. With some phone services you may need to press *1 instead of just 1.

I will try to be open to opposing viewpoints. I would prefer that if we are to criticize, we focus on ideas only, and not on people's characters, including the personalities of various persons in political office. We are not here to diagnose anyone, but to have a lively and invigorating discussion.
