What is DSM Ready?
The DSM Ready Movement provides an opportunity for people to come out of the shadows and share their mental health experiences in a safe and nonjudgmental environment; where race, ethnicity, creed, knowledge and class do not matter. What matters is: love, openness, the desire to share and make a change, and the freedom to be yourself. Specifically, DSM Ready focuses on topics such as addiction, lifestyle, exercise and mental health and the ability to best optimize our lives to live in a higher state of mind. 😎
The 3 Goals of The DSM Ready Movement:
1) End mental health stigma and normalize mental health
2) Provide a safe and nonjudgmental place to share thoughts, feelings and advice about mental health
3) Maximize happiness and well-being
Who is Dr. Sinu?
I am a doctor doing my psychiatry residency in the New York City area. I started developing an eye for psychology at a young age, after my parents separated when I was 10, during the time that I moved from New York to Pennsylvania. As I watched my dad’s jeep slowly leave down the street, the tears that fell down my face were the seeds of the OCD and anxiety that I would later develop in my adolescent years and young adulthood. Having viewed the world from a psychological lens since a young age, I came to realize that I had to make a change in society: to end mental health stigma and provide a warm and welcoming place to share our experiences and recommendations. I graduated from the University of Pittsburgh with a BS in Natural Science and St. George’s School of Medicine with an MD degree. For fun, I enjoy playing tennis, working out, reading and socializing. I envision The DSM Ready Movement growing into an international community based on honesty, integrity and freedom. Are you Ready?
