Erik Messamore, MD, PhD

Erik Messamore is a psychiatrist and can be reached on Twitter @ErikMessamoreMD and LinkedIn.

Having been trained as a scientist before being trained as a physician, he brings fresh and effective approaches to clinical problems.

In addition to helping people with mental illness achieve recovery, his mission is to uncover useful yet overlooked knowledge and explain it, in plain English, to as many people as possible.

As a professional explainer of mind, medicine, neuroscience, and pharmacology, he has been quoted by the Associated Press, Malcolm Gladwell, and the U.S. Surgeon General.

He is the author of The Unsponsored Psychiatry Report, a free periodic letter about mental health, psychiatry, and pharmacology.
