Is it possible that the drug-based psychiatric care industry has actually fueled an epidemic of mental illness?

Our guest is Dr. Harriet Cooke 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."

Here's some links to more on Rethinking Psychiatry:

Time Change for Events

Rethinking Psychiatry has informed us that the afternoon event scheduled for 4-6 pm has been cancelled but the 7-9 p.m. talk by Mr Whitaker is still happening, that's at the same location, the First Unitarian Church, with a sliding scale donation but no one os turned away for lack of funds. Go!
