When we force people to take psychiatric drugs, or lie to get them to take the drugs, we are not only harming the organ of their body called the brain—we are harming their capacity to think and to feel, and to know and to express themselves. We are limiting their personality and identity, and the […]
Face this beast in my most recent blog on Mad in America. Meet Bob Whitaker and myself at the William Glaser Institute conference next week July 26-July 28, 2017 in Raleigh, North Carolina. Our Center for the Study of Empathic Therapy is cosponsoring.
In January 1999, a young woman was pushed off a subway platform in New York City and killed. The perpetrator was identified in the press as a mental patient who had stopped taking his drugs. The Pharmaceutical Empire and organized psychiatry manipulated this horrendous event to stir up public fear of psychiatric patients who stop taking their drugs. The result in New York State was Kendra’s law, making it easier to involuntarily treat patients who refuse to take their medication.
There are so many lies about psychiatric drugs, including the biochemical imbalance theory, why do I focus this one—that disturbed mental patients must take the drugs to prevent them from killing people? It has many harmful ramifications for individuals and for society.

I write about this in more detail today on my blog on Natural News. Since the 1970s, lithium—a markedly destructive neurotoxin—has been brought […]
“Lithium: The Gift That Keeps Giving in Psychiatry” is the headline for a panel at the 2017 annual meeting of the American Psychiatric Association (APA). The psychiatrists tout the value of this prescription neurotoxin—including as a natural cure found in drinking water. This drug is FDA-approved to suppress manic episodes and it is also prescribed without FDA approval to level depression and to prevent suicide, all of which lacks a sound scientific basis.
Now that summer is here, remember that many psychiatric drugs pose a risk of potentially lethal heat exhaustion or heat stroke, including antipsychotic drugs, antidepressants, and stimulants. Any drug that disrupts major neurotransmitter systems like dopamine, acetylcholine, serotonin, or histamine can disrupt heat regulation and poses a potential for causing or aggravating heat stroke. That […]
Luke Montagu, my guest today on Wednesday, June 14, 2017, is the heir to Mapperton, described by The Times, as the finest manor house in England, and one day he is slated to become the Earl of Sandwich. “A charmed life?” asks The Times? No, not quite, because antidepressants nearly destroyed his life. As we […]
