Unregistered 171: Robert Whitaker

After decades of wrestling with and doubting the profession that is ostensibly dedicated to improving my mental health, I decided to talk to the legendary science journalist Robert Whitaker, whose research has blown apart contemporary psychiatry and revealed how catastrophic its mass deployment of psychoactive drugs has been for children, adults, and even people suffering with schizophrenia. If you’re seeing a traditional psychiatrist or taking medication for mental health, this episode will very likely change your life.
