Hi everyone! I am new to being on a forum of any kind and have suffered from emotional well being issues all of my adult life. I refrain from my label of bi polar which I do not find helpful. I read the book Soteria quite a few years back and have learnt about the wonderful Dr Loren Mosher and admire what he achieved. I would just love another Soteria to branch out here in the UK and my son actually found me a video on the internet of people living at Soteria house all of those years ago. Which I found inspiring. I hope to make friends here.

Hello Gibson91, Soteria was an amazing project done in the 1970's headed by psychiatrist Loren Mosher who thought to himself how do my patients fare on the ward when I am not with them and how do they really feel about being there? He opened a house in a run down residential area of California and it stayed open for 12 years I think until it run out of funds. They never forced their patients who were basically schizophrenic to take medication but it was used sometimes. Most of their patients went onto recover completely and the results they had were better or just as good as the ones they had in hospitals at that time. And I must say probably today. There is a Soteria project in Bradford today. Hope this explains.
