Mad in America's Tenth Anniversary
We launched Mad in America in 2012 with a simple mission. We believed that psychiatric care in the United States and abroad had been organized in response to a “false narrative of science,” and our goal was to foster a new narrative, one anchored in a critical review of the science and the voices of those who have “lived experience” as patients in the system.
That narrative is indeed changing, and we are proud to say that Mad in America, which is funded entirely from reader donations, has played an important role in making that happen. In 2022, Mad in America and its 11 affiliates will have around 5.5 million visitors. Our podcasts have now been downloaded nearly one million times.
If you value MIA, please help us–as we venture into a second decade of operations — to “change the narrative.”
