Video of the Day: Eleanor Longden's TED Talk on the voices in her head

I like this talk, but I'm posting here with a few warnings. In no way do I think everyone should be off meds because clearly some people can't function without them, and suggesting that a disease as serious as schizophrenia can be managed non-pharmaceutically is a dangerous road to go down, but she has a lot of interesting things to say, not only about resilience, but how listening to one's patients -- in addition to pumping them with pills -- is a crucial part of recovery.
