  • If you have been a “patient” and felt personally harmed by the conventional healthcare system’s over-use of psychiatric medications…and you know the need for integrative therapies…
  • If you are the loving family member of someone who has been suffering from mental health issues and benefitted from integrative therapies…
  • If you understand the need to support others to gain a deeper understanding of the value of an integrative approach to wellness…
  • If you want to network with others who are deeply concerned and want to directly contribute to improve our healthcare system…
  • If you believe IMHU is doing something very beneficial…and you want to become part of a wider network of people with similar values and perspectives…
