Hologram, 2018

Rachel Inberg writes from the unique perspective of a psychiatric provider who treats mental illness in others and also experiences it herself. When she is not thinking or writing about the challenges of living with chronic illness, she is managing a refugee health program and running her private practice.

Rachel likes gluten-free baked goods, t-shirts with pockets, and lowercase letters. She has, in the past year, become a ‘scarf person.’ She believes that antidepressants and medical cannabis are a-okay, and that healthcare is a human right. Her favorite poem is "She Comes From Somewhere" by Charles Bukowski — she apologizes.

Rachel's favorite belongings are: a green Kitchen-Aid mixer, a pink couch, and a Nikon d3400 camera. She is a cat mama to Winnie (6) and Nuggets (almost 5.)

Rachel's nonfiction and poetry have appeared in The Guardian, Huffington Post, The Rumpus, and the Narratively and Tin House collection 'Memoir Mondays.'  She also appeared in a Huffington Post video interview discussing her history of depression and suicidalilty.
