EDS Awareness Educational Series – Recording Available


Listen to this FREE online learning session about EDS & Psychiatric illness misdiagnoses by Dr. Richard Barnum, Psychiatrist.

How can families handle situations where they feel misunderstood by their healthcare providers?

Unfortunately, many EDSers are misdiagnosed with psychiatric conditions before their Ehlers-Danlos, Dysautonomia or associated physical conditions are identified. Dr. Barnum addresses what can happen in extreme situations that escalate out of control, and how to avoid these situations.  He will explain diagnoses such as Conversion Disorder and Munchausen Syndrome by Proxy. His presentation “Dealing With Diagnostic Controversies in Psychiatry and Medicine” will mainly focus on children, adolescents and their families.
