New patients often ask about the role psychotropic medication might play in their recovery from anxiety, depression and other disorders. I recently took up this question with a subject matter expert on the topic, Robert Whitaker. Mr. Whitaker is an investigative journalist whose science writing has received numerous awards and been shortlisted for a Pulitzer Prize For Public Service. He’s the author of five books and produces the critically acclaimed webzine Mad In America. Decades of reporting on pharmaceutical industry protocols have led him to conclude our current understanding of mental illness / medication has been constructed around a “false narrative.” Please sit in on our spirited discussion of this important topic.
