Hearing Voices Network Fundraiser, 19th October 2011
Robert Whitaker, author of Anatomy of an Epidemic: Magic Bullets, Psychiatric Drugs and the Astonishing Rise of Mental Illness in America, will be visiting London on 19th October.
Why have the numbers of people disabled by ‘mental illness’ skyrocketed over the past fifty years? Why does this epidemic parallel so closely the growth and dominance of psychiatric drugs as treatment? Acclaimed US medical journalist Robert Whitaker documents a history of science and medicine that raises the controversial question: could the drug-based paradigm of care be fuelling this modern day epidemic?
This is a fundraising event organised by and for the Hearing Voices Network, a national charity, which works to raise awareness of voice hearing, visions, tactile sensations and other sensory experiences.
