The DI website has been written by Sarah K Reece, a peer worker with lived experience. For more of her writing on these topics, try these links on her personal blog:
Many of our members write blogs, have websites, or manage online groups of their own. We are always looking for current and relevant resources to link, feel welcome to suggest yours. This is a Network for you to explore: some links are clinical, others are alternative, there is great diversity represented here. Listing links here is not an endorsement, take care when exploring.
