*** Update, 7/1/15 ***
Thank you very much to everyone who volunteered to share their first-time ketamine treatment on video. The PBS NewHour story is still in development and we expect it to air in the coming weeks. They have the footage they need for broadcast. We won’t know what will be included until the final editing is complete, but at this time they are not seeking more video for purposes of airing it. However, the producer would still welcome additional videos for her background research, to help them understand ketamine’s impact as much as possible so they can tell the story in the most effective and objective way. If you choose to volunteer your video, it will be seen by the producer and she might want to ask you some followup questions about your experience, but your video will not be broadcast on the air. As before, if you are interested in sharing, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org, and I will provide you instructions on how to go about it.

The goal of this news story is similar to the goal of the Ketamine Advocacy network: to educate, raise awareness and offer hope to sufferers of intractable depression. A true before-and-after picture of successful ketamine therapy has never been shown in the media, and we think it would be a powerful message. Please consider volunteering if you’re able.
