Psychiatrist Chris Gordon writes in the New York Times “What we call schizophrenia is probably a syndrome with many causes, and with a wide range of outcomes, with and without treatment. Many people do benefit from standard treatments, but many do not — and many find these treatments objectionable because of metabolic and other toxicities. Moreover, many people find the current system of mental health delivery to be disrespectful, coercive and violent.”
