The Dr. Peter Breggin Hour – 05.18.16

With a passionate condemnation of psychiatric “euthanasia”–that’s how I begin. Then my guest Bob Nikkel talks about pioneering programs in mental health and their funding by the Foundation for Excellence in Mental Health, including a US family-oriented therapeutic intervention with an 80% success rate in returning people with acute psychosis to community, school, work, and ultimately to a better and happier life. Psychosocial therapies work; drug therapies make people worse. This is what science is confirming.
