A Word About Us
The Follow Your Bliss Foundation was founded by Merry Citoli, an award winning singer/songwriter who was put on a benzodiazepine for menopause related anxiety and insomnia. Like many people, she was not informed of the dangers of these drugs and ended up on a 16 year journey of health complications from the drug that seriously impacted her life.
After finding compounding pharmacist, Roy Katz she was able to slowly taper off the drug, but still not without serious consequences. Her full story can be read here:
As a way to heal and recover her life after a horrific withdrawal, she is dedicating her life to helping others find the path to their own joy in life, and be free of psychiatric medications.
HARNESSING THE CREATIVITY OF THE HUMAN SPIRIT
Where Hope Starts To Heal
Become A Member At:
The Follow Your Bliss Foundation wants to spread the message of hope across the world. We are raising funds and promoting awareness about psychiatric medication withdrawal through counseling and referral sources. Our team works tirelessly each day with the same goals in mind:
To help people find and follow their bliss by connecting to their inner resources without prescription medications.
The Follow Your Bliss Foundation will not diagnose, treat or cure any disease or medical condition. The service is educational.
INDIVIDUAL DIET CONSULTATIONS
Contact us about individual diet consultations that are specific to people who are withdrawing from prescription medications. Many people have more sensitive systems while withdrawing from different medications and require diets that will be less stimulating to the central nervous system. We realize that the withdrawal process can be lonely, long and frightening, and we are here to take some of the guess work out of the withdrawal process for each individual.
Medication Taper Consultations
FULL COUNSELING PROGRAMS
At the Follow Your Bliss Foundation our experts understand the importance of slow medication tapers and help support you through every step of the process with liquid tapering advice and on what to expect during the process of withdrawal. By using liquid taper programs it takes the guess work out of cutting pills and tablets. We also help you with lifestyle management programs to help prevent relapse and help you find peace of mind without the use of medications.
Sliding Scale Fees
IRS TAX RETURN REQUIRED
We understand the need in our society to offer programs at reduced fees for families and individuals struggling to make ends meet while getting off medications. We want our program to be available to those who would not ordinarily be able to afford our programs without the donations from our fundraising efforts. Contact us if you need assistance, and we can see if you qualify to receive assistance for our programs.

Contribute to Our Mobile, Music App for Children and Give Them Hope of a Drug Free Future
HELP CHILDREN FIND EMPOWERMENT
Currently there are no interactive mobile, music-based apps anywhere on the market where children can play with animated characters and concepts in an imaginary world that encourages creation of healthy, happy, human beings. Living and playing in Zanithia teaches children through experiential tasks how to care about themselves, their families and communities, and their world. The skills they develop through the joyful music and lyrics delivered through animated characters and positive, fun activities will lead them to develop self-expression, creativity, kindness, understanding, and a healthy cooperative outlook.
We are developing a game app that engages children through music and peaceful, productive activity to participate in the creation of a positive, hopeful, less violent world. Studies have shown that children who have constant interaction with music or visual content set to music tend to have larger vocabularies and more advanced reading skills than their peers, who do not have the same level of exposure.
We feel this app we are creating is a world-changer. Children in the magical land of Zanithia learn to master the power of Abjurer (self-empowerment) while earning stories and songs as rewards.
This is more than an app, it's a social intervention for children. Be a Part of the Magic!!! We would love to have you join us in creating a positive future for our children
