  • Peter, thank you so much for your work in general and for this article in particular. Even though research does not support the tenets of the biological model, including the supposed genetic component of “mental illnesses,” these unsupported claims are accepted by the general public and treated as gospel by well-meaning providers, which, as you know, has a dramatic and potentially catastrophic effect on the lives of people in the mental health care system. Thank you so much for helping shine the light of science in the service of debunking harmful pseudo-science and promoting forms of support that are actually useful. I share your passion for dispelling biological psychiatry’s myths and supporting the invaluable support and solidarity being offered by people with lived experience to one another.
