The recent book, Psychiatry Under the Influence – co-authored by Robert Whitaker and Lisa Cosgrove – investigates the actions and practices of the psychiatry establishment and presents it as a case study of institutional corruption.
Stefan Molyneux and Robert Whitaker discuss the state of psychiatry, the dangers of antidepressants, the lack of science supporting the benefits of selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs), the dangers to unborn children when pregnant mothers consume these medications and other shocking information which the general public does not yet understand about these commonly used drugs.
