Psychiatry Unplugged – The Way Up from Down

Has the covid pandemic left you feeling depressed and unmotivated? My favourite psychiatrist, known for her expertise in non-pharmaceutical approaches to depression and mental illness, is Dr Hyla Cass.


I had the pleasure of co-authoring a book with her – Natural Highs, in 2001. At that time Dr Cass was an assistant clinical professor at the University of California, Los Angeles. She is a highly acclaimed innovator and expert in the fields of integrative medicine, psychiatry, and addiction recovery, including withdrawal from anti-depressant medication. She is also an expert in CBD and its effects on mood, sleep and anxiety. In this podcast we look under the hood of psychiatry to come up with the best ways up from feeling down.
