Rachel Bernstein is an LA-based therapist who has specialized in cult intervention and re-acclimation for over 30 years. Over the years she has made many media appearances as a cult expert on CNN, MSNBC, the BBC, NPR, Bloomberg, and many other major news outlets.

If you have been personally affected by involvement in a cult, or would like to support those who have been, you can find support with or donate to Cult Information and Family Support if you’re in Australia (via www.cifs.org.au), and you can find resources outside of Australia with the International Cultic Studies Association (via www.icsahome.com).
If you or someone you know is in crisis or needs support right now, please call Lifeline on 13 11 14 in Australia, or find your local crisis centre via the International Association for Suicide Prevention website at www.iasp.info.
