The Rise in Violence, Suicide and Psychiatric Drugs

Dr. Peter Breggin has been called the “conscience of psychiatry” during his outstanding career to reform the mental health field.  Dr. Breggin is a Harvard trained psychiatrist and a former consultant for the National Institutes of Mental Health. He is one of our nation's most important critics of the current conventional psychotherapeutic approaches in treating mental disorders in both adults and children, particularly the epidemic use of psychoactive drugs.  Along with his wife, he is the founder of the Center for the Study of Empathic Therapy, a non profit organization providing scientific-based information on dangers and adverse effects of psychiatric drugs. Dr. Breggin has written many important and award winning books. Especially notable are "Medication Madness" and his later  “Guilt, Shame and Anxiety: Understanding and Overcoming Negative Emotions”  Peter also hosts a radio broadcast -- “Dr. Peter Breggin Hour” -- every Wednesday at 4:00 pm eastern time on the Progressive Radio Network.  His website is Breggin.com
