First ISMHO member ever expelled from the organization

Because of a member’s unprofessional behavior and activities, the International Society for Mental Health Online (ISMHO) recently took the unprecedented action of terminating that person’s membership in the Society. In its 8-year history, I’m not aware of the organization ever having done this before.

I’m saddened by this because I pity the professional. I hope he finds help for his issues soon, and eventually finds closure. His actions and rants toward multiple organizations and other professionals speak for themselves.
