Through open dialogue, in both new media and print, they hope to foster discussion about the work psychiatrists do, and to decrease stigma associated with the treatment of mental disorders. Components of the Accessible Psychiatry include:
• Shrink Rap: A blog, now going into it's fifth year with over 1,300 posts
• My Three Shrinks: a podcast, with 55 episodes aired on iTunes
• Shrink Rap: Three Psychiatrists Explain Their Work, to be released by Johns Hopkins University Press in May, 2011.
