In September 2020 two and a half thousand people from over 15 different countries registered for the A Disorder for Everyone Online Festival.

AD4E brought together wisdom, experience and passion for change in an online festival full of inspiring contributors who all challenged the mainstream medicalised paradigm of emotional distress that labels and pathologises people’s suffering.

The feedback we received in the weeks and months that followed the event was overwhelmingly positive and encouraging and it provided us with yet more evidence that the appetite for this discussion is growing exponentially.

Many, many people have simply had enough of people’s stories and experiences being negated and dismissed by scientifically questionable labels. They want change, and they want to be part of a movement that is demanding change.

This September we are doing it all again!

Sign up here to join us and please help to spread the word as much as possible.

Contributors will be announced nearer the time and as always the line-up will be amazing!

Donations only – Pay what you can afford.
