Article by a fellow HPPDer: What's been your experience of seeking help from psychologists and psychiatrists?

Recommended Posts

Hi all -

My name is Ed Prideaux and I'm a UK-based writer, journalist, and six-year HPPDer. You can see my portfolio here: https://edprideaux.journoportfolio.com/. I'm working on HPPD awareness for a nonprofit, and appeared on a podcast (you can see in my post history) to discuss: https://www.perception.foundation/

I'm writing an article right now about all things HPPD for a publication called Mad In America, which is run by the journalist Robert Whitaker. The magazine specialises in coverage of the psychiatric-psychological sector, often in a critical lens. It's run a couple of excellent critical pieces on psychedelic medicine, so I've decided to throw in my contribution from the lens of HPPD and harm reduction for psychedelics.

Something I'm interested in covering is how well-equipped our current psychiatry/psychotherapy/counselling systems are for handling people complaining of HPPD, and the under-covered risks of psychedelics more generally.

Please leave a comment outling your story, or otherwise indicate your interest in participating, and I will DM you. You can DM me, too. This is totally anonymous on request. I'd also like to situate people's experiences with clinical professionals in the broader context of their HPPD story, so if you're comfortable sharing that kind of detail, please do.

You can also email me at eddie.prideaux@gmail.com
