Can MIA invite the author to a podcast to talk about a book?
Well, I am Russian and live in Russia. Our attitude to psychiatry are generally worse in comparison to usa, but young people are often readily accept “illness like any another” narrative. And behind this narrative is clearly a medical authority. When i tried to persuade someone of the myth of chemical imbalance, they simply told me: “My doctor told me about serotonin, that is evidence-based medicine. You are not a doctor, you are crank like AIDS denialist “.
You seriously underestimate the power of the scientific and medical authority of mainstream psychiatry. Lay people sincerely believe doctors because they think, that psychiatry is part of evidence-based medicine.
