The Dr. Peter Breggin Hour – 04.18.18

My guest is Chuck Knapp, MA, cofounder of Windhorse Integrative Mental Health in Boulder, Colorado.  He and his group bring kindness, thoughtfulness, and a rich background of experience to helping people otherwise labelled “chronic” by contemporary institutions.  Windhorse is one of the best-kept secrets in the field for people and their families who have suffered in the prevailing mental health system.   While not excluding people who want medication, Chuck explains that Windhorse will treat people and their families who wish to avoid or to withdraw from psychiatric drugs.  Like all the best therapeutic approaches, especially for profoundly wounded people, it tailors treatment as much as possible to the family.  Of course, you must explore and evaluate Windhorse for yourself–I have no personal or professional experience with it–but I honor the soundness of the family-oriented principles, combined with respect for the individual, that it seeks to implement.
