The Council for Evidence-based Psychiatry is hosting a one-day conference in London, England on September 18th, entitled More Harm Than Good: Confronting the Psychiatric Medication Epidemic.
The text of the invitation:
The Council for Evidence-based Psychiatry invites you to join global leaders in the critical psychiatry movement for a one-day conference which will address an urgent public health issue: the iatrogenic harm caused by the over-prescription of psychiatric medications.
There is clear evidence that these drugs cause more harm than good over the long term, and can damage patients and even shorten their lives. Yet why are these medications so popular? What harms are they causing? What can be done to address the problem?
This event brings together key experts from both sides of the Atlantic to debate these issues, and we invite you to join the discussion
Speakers include Peter Gøtzsche, Joanna Moncrieff, and James Davies.
