Host: James Moore

Welcome to the Mad in America podcast where we discuss science, psychiatry and social justice.


Episode 13 Dr. Peter Breggin (part 2)

Dr. Breggin is a Harvard-trained psychiatrist and former Consultant at the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH). He has been called “The Conscience of Psychiatry” for his many decades of successful efforts to reform the mental health field.

For a career as long and distinguished as Dr. Breggin’s we have decided to devote two episodes to hearing him speak. The first part covered Dr. Breggin’s career, his views on psychiatry and psychiatric drugs and also recent developments with the trial involving Michelle Carter. Part 2 of the interview focuses more on recent events surrounding the trial and alternatives to psychiatric drugs.
