New York Times reporter wants to talk to UK sufferers of antidepressant withdrawal

 

CEP has received the following request from Ben Carey, a reporter for the New York Times:

 

“My name is Ben Carey, and I cover psychiatry for the New York Times. I have covered the field for over a decade, and one of the biggest emerging stories is drug withdrawal – particularly from antidepressant drugs. Tens of millions of people in the UK, US and elsewhere have had trouble going off these drugs. Now, in the UK, there are efforts to study the problem and help people: the first such efforts I know of. I am going to write about this withdrawal movement, and I am hoping to find people who’ve struggled with this problem to tell the story. I’d love to meet in person, but I am open to any arrangement; the important thing is to put the story out. I will be in the London area all next week, through Nov. 5; and the tag end of the following week. Anyone interested who cares to ask me questions about the story before deciding is welcome to do so: 00 1 914-330-3847 or bencarey@nytimes.com

Thanks for catching this, DaddyCee.

 

I emailed a friend from my benzo forum days. She's been in contact with this reporter and it seems he has been reached by enough people now, so he's no longer advertising.

 

My friend said that in their email correspondence, Ben Carey said there's going to be two articles - one for antidepressant withdrawal and one for benzo withdrawal. 

 

I look forward to reading these articles.
