Robert Whitaker is a journalist and author of two books about the history of psychiatry, Mad in America and Anatomy of an Epidemic, and the co-author, with Lisa Cosgrove, of Psychiatry Under the Influence. He is the founder of madinamerica.com.
Robert will be joining the program again live in the coming weeks, and I want my audience to be up to speed on his groundbreaking journalism. In his pulitzer prize nominated articles for the Boston Globe, Robert Whitaker discovered an extreme potential danger of prescription drugs such as SSRIs and antipsychotics in the treatment of depressed, anxious and mentally-ill.
