Robert Whitaker – a critic of psychiatry

I spent the earlier part of this evening live tweeting (look for #DCPconf) a public lecture by the American health journalist Robert Whitaker.

He is a critic of the the medical model of psychiatry, which sees medication as the answer to mental distress. You can read his articles and find links to his books at Psychology Today.
