This support group is for people experiencing uncontrollable bodily movements due to (doctor-approved) withdrawals from long-term usage of antipsychotic medication to treat depression.
Tardive dyskinesia (TD) is the term used to describe this disorder (which maybe temporary or permanent) and support for us is wanting in this city.
I'm hoping this meetup will provide an opportunity to meet with others, learn more about this disorder, share our experiences in a safe space, hear from guest speakers/mental health specialists, learn how to stay well/cope with stress/anxiety.
We may use art to express our experiences and stories using paint, writing, even comedy (to keep or to share), to reflect our ideas about the impact of TD in our lives.
As the organizer, I've been experiencing TD since 2016 and my goal is to allow others not to feel as alone as I did.
