Heads Up, Children’s Mental Health Professionals & Parents – Dr. Waln Brown is offering his e-book, Saving the Schizo Kid: Reflections on Divorce, Mental Health and Recovery, FREE at Amazon.com, from Sunday, November 2nd through Thursday, November 7th. You do NOT need a Kindle to read the book! You can still read it FREE on ANY computer, smart phone or tablet using Amazon’s FREE Kindle reading app. The author recounts his experience as a 15-year-old succumbing to his parents’ dysfunctional marriage and divorce, his mother’s OCD and his father’s rejection, resulting in multiple placements, including 2 1/2 months in a state mental hospital. Despite a panel of six psychiatrists labeling him “schizoid,” “schizophrenic,” “autistic” and “neurotic,” he put his life together without the aid of medication or therapy. Read what he’s learned over the past 55 years.
