Chronic Lyme disease is a complicated, confusing, and terrifying abyss—a black hole of human suffering, conflicting views, widespread corruption, and unrelenting medical navigation. In this webinar Lori Dennis calls for therapists––psychiatrists, psychologists, psychotherapists, counsellors and all mental health professionals––to be aware of this bacteria driven, multi-system, immunosuppressive illness which often presents as a number of psychiatric disorders, such as intractable depression, anxiety, OCD, ADHD, derealization, rage, and more. Join us as Lori Dennis shares her story Lyme Madness, which chronicles her family’s medical odyssey while capturing the current landscape of immeasurable suffering, twisted politics and medical madness that ensues worldwide from her unique perspective as both therapist and mother, rescuing her son from the Lyme disease rabbit hole.
