Don’t Miss Robert Whitaker at the 2015 MindFreedom Mini-Conference: Continuing the Creative Revolution in Mental Health
Robert Whitaker has inspired so many of us to work toward a different and better mental health system. He is the author of five books, three of which are: Mad in America: Bad Science, Bad Medicine and the Enduring Mistreatment of the Mentally Ill that was named by Discover magazine as one of the best science books of 2002; his second on this topic, Anatomy of an Epidemic: Magic Bullets, Psychiatric Drugs, and the Astonishing Rise of Mental Illness in America that won the Investigative Reporters and Editors book award for best investigative journalism in 2010; his latest, which he co-authored with Lisa Cosgrove, is Psychiatry under the Influence: Institutional Corruption, Social Injury, and Prescriptions for Reform. Prior to writing books, he worked as the science and medical reporter at the Albany Times Union newspaper.
Come listen to Robert Whitaker and participate in a book signing with him.
