    Can Employee Assistance Programs (EAP) be an On-Ramp for Help?

    Can Employee Assistance Programs (EAP) be an On-Ramp for Help?

    The Frontier Psychiatrists started as a “room” on Clubhouse, and in this podcast, I am joined by one of our favorite contributors ! He joins me today to discuss how employee assistance programs can create the on-ramp to help and what might improve that process.
    A sampling of prior articles about employer-based health care is available here:
    The Science Behind The Best In Class Outcomes in Mental Health (with Acacia Clinics)
    Lawsuits for Health Plans Have Begun
    Alcohol Use Disorder is a Disability
    A Conversation About First Responder Health With Chuck DeSmith
    What is Health Insurance that is ERISA Compliant?
    Have Health Benefits Become a Huge Personal Liability for Employers?
    How Narrow Networks Can Win for Mental Health Parity
    Can’t Find a Psychiatrist? Now You Can Sue Your Company!
    Why Savings Claims Can Be A Scam
    What do Shaggy and Health Insurance Have In Common?
    Owen’s Letters to the Healthcare Hackers
    I want to mention that another validated vendor in the mental health arena is joining my team at Acacia Clinics to have independent validation of our claims of being the best! I’m thrilled that my friends at Spring Health have achieved the coveted “savings validation” from Validation Institute!
    If you have been following the news of ERISA enforcement, this is important news. Employers need to get serious about providing better healthcare at a lower cost. Independent validation takes some pressure off when selecting the right vendors to make up a high-performing health plan. Why do I care, as a doctor, about health plans? Because great health plans are better for patients!
    Here on substack, and are on this beat as well, and I’d recommend a read!

    Trauma Therapy You Don't Need To Talk About

    Trauma Therapy You Don't Need To Talk About

    I checked in with Jeremy Fox, P.C., about a new FDA-cleared device, the PRISM system by GrayMatters Health. This is a treatment modality for Post Traumatic Stress Disorder that doesn't require talking about your trauma! is one of my favorite trauma therapists, so I called him to discuss.
    This is now offered at four sites in the US, and Fermata in Brooklyn, NY, is one of them. I discuss the experience of having PTSD myself and the role of trauma exposure in medical training and practice.
    I do the quick version of explaining the Prism System in 50 seconds here…

    First Breaks

    First Breaks

    The Frontier Psychiatrists didn’t start as a newsletter. It began as a clubhouse room, with friends like and joining myself and for audio-only conversations. Even before that, I was a bit podcast-obsessed. I won a grant to record podcasts about self-disclosure among health professionals at NYU—the Rudin Fellowship in Ethics and Humanities. This episode is built on a recording from that era—2017—with Gillian Waldorf, Ph.D. This is what I looked like way back in college:
    She is a classmate of mine from Amherst College, and we were both huge nerds who didn’t drink. Little did we know, we also had our first stirrings of psychiatric illness in common. This podcast is not perfect. It is also only part one. But perfect, as this newsletter + associated media is fond of embodying, is the enemy of the done. This was recorded, edited, and scored by yours truly, Owen Muir, M.D.
    I hope you enjoy it. Please share and review on Apple Podcasts if you do!

    The Remind-er! An Interview with Anthony Sterns of iRxReminder

    The Remind-er! An Interview with Anthony Sterns of iRxReminder

    The Frontier Psychiatrists is a substack-hosted media empire…we have video, newsletter, dumb memes, podcasts, and music—my gosh golly! Today, I bring you a conversation with a colleague who is both humble and brilliant. We first met on Clubhouse—in 2020—when and I were hosting conversations on the weekly. Tony and I met again in the What If Ventures fellowship, and, as I have told him, we just enjoyed each other’s company.
    We collaborated on grant writing, and one thing led to another…and now I’m the Chief Medical Officer of his company, iRxReminder. Anthony is a kind and funny person to work with, which I couldn't value more highly. He is also brilliant. He understands medication adherence problems better than anyone I’ve ever encountered. In this long overdue podcast, he explains the problem and how we address it with our closed-loop AI + Internet of Things cognitive prosthesis. He’s a master educator, friend, and my CEO (in one of my gigs)!

M&M / Michael ,

Dr Muir rocks!!

Dr. Muir always without fails provides incredible insight. He is champion for leading difficult and real discussions in healthcare payment, mental health, and is never afraid too talk about what is often overlooked or those topics that Pharma or pays might not want you to talk about.

He has a gift of packaging his wisdom in humor and delights his audience with real facts - no dry research or statistics but if he needs to he will.

He is one of the smartest people out there especially in a lot of subjects beyond medicine and psychiatry- music too.

Frontier Psych ,

Worth it!

Dr. Muir creatively finds a way to produce content thats not only relevant but offers fresh perspectives in a very entertaining way. His podcast and writings are highly engaging and educational. Worth every bit of your time to follow his work.
