Tim Dreby is an award-winning author and licensed psychotherapist who works on an urban outpatient psychiatric unit. Tim’s first publication was in 2015, entitled, Fighting for Freedom in America: Memoir of a “Schizophrenia” and Mainstream Cultural Delusions. It chronicles his mid career plight taking on a section 8 management company, police, and black market forces that intermingled to run things. The outcome has been a unique perspective on mental health informed by both sides of the broken tiled corridor.
Tim became a social worker in 1993 and worked his way through. Since becoming licensed over the past ten years he has developed an extensive training for providers to help them work with people who experience “psychosis” across diagnostic divides.
