Mad in America: science, psychiatry and social justice
About This Show
Welcome to the Mad in America podcast, a new weekly discussion that searches for the truth about psychiatric prescription drugs and mental health care worldwide.
This podcast is part of Mad in America’s mission to serve as a catalyst for rethinking psychiatric care. We believe that the current drug-based paradigm of care has failed our society and that scientific research, as well as the lived experience of those who have been diagnosed with a psychiatric disorder, calls for profound change.
On the podcast over the coming weeks, we will have interviews with experts and those with lived experience of the psychiatric system. Thank you for joining us as we discuss the many issues around rethinking psychiatric care around the world.

enlightening and inspirational - thank you James !
An eye opening to the truth behind the adverse effects of psychiatric meds. The quality of guests from leading psychiatrists & researchers to real live experiences from the girl/guy next door - talking openly about the lasting damage on the brain caused by these drugs and how we've been lied to by main stream doctors who ignorantly trap people on them and become hopeless suffering huge side effects. Knowledge is power - this Podcast is essential for anyone seeking help and support to understand the pitfalls of the withdrawal stages from these psych meds.
