About the Dr. Terry Lynch Mental Health Academy:

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.
