I have created the Dr. Terry Lynch Mental Health Academy so that I can share my understandings of and approach to emotional and mental health – including the psychiatric diagnoses – with a wider audience than the limited numbers of people I can work with face to face.
Author, mental health activist, physician and psychotherapist, for nine years Terry Lynch served on mental health groups appointed by the Irish government.
Terry Lynch has been described by Irish psychiatrists Professor Ivor Browne as “enlightened”, and Dr. Pat Bracken as “a true scientist”.

Terry has repeatedly called for a fundamental reappraisal of global mental health.read more
