Hello and welcome to "The Looney Bin: Analysis of Mental Health Issues" © Megan Snider This site is the brainchild of Megan Snider, a freelance writer and holder of a Bachelor's in English Literature.

It was set up to tackle a complex host of mental health issues from the point of the consumer, who is so often overlooked in the process. Its mission is to infiltrate and lay bare the devastating world of mental illness and to offer a constructive voice in alleviating some of the problems in the overtaxed and obtrusive psychiatric world.

If you would like to use an excerpt from this site on your own personal page, please be sure to include my full name and a link to my blog. This blog is maintained for free and struggles with deep delving issues in psychiatry. I would like my name and my blog's link to accompany my articles as you would do with any other source you quote.

I hope you find something you've been looking for on this site and enjoy your visit. Please remember that while you are free to leave this site, the struggles and stigma continues in the outside world for people with mental illnesses. I hope I have challenged some of your assumptions and beliefs in the time you have spent here.
