Update: This was a successful show, you can hear the archive. Guests: Journalist Robert Whitaker is the author of the new book, “Anatomy of an Epidemic,” which says that studies show the main psychiatric drugs are actually increasing the level of mental and emotional problems. Electroshock survivor Linda Andre is author of the book “Doctors of Deception,” which exposes the history of electroconvulsive therapy, or ECT. Host is psychiatric survivor David Oaks, director of MindFreedom International.
This was a great show, with lots of listener calls during the special two hours, and superb comments from our author guests.
