Analysis of the Mental Health Industry
Is it possible that the drug-based psychiatric care industry has actually fueled an epidemic of mental illness?
Our guest is Marcia Meyer of the local group Rethinking Psychiatry, which puts on an annual symposium scrutinizing the mental health industry -- that event is coming up in May.
Meanwhile, their upcoming fundraiser is Tuesday, April 17, 4 - 6:00 PM at the First Unitarian Church Channing Room, 1011 SW 12th Avenue, Portland, with speaker Robert Whitaker, award winning author of "Anatomy of an Epidemic: Magic Bullets, Psychiatric Drugs, and the Astonishing Rise of Mental Illness in America."
