4.0 out of 5 stars well researched review of psychiatric medication, 7 Nov. 2009
By 
This review is from: The Myth of the Chemical Cure: A Critique of Psychiatric Drug Treatment (Paperback)
Raises a lot of interesting questions about psychiatry and the medications used.I'm not sure if medication has ever been promoted as a 'cure' for mental illness by psychiatrists but probably has by drug companies. Unfortunately she does not have the time to look at effective alternatives to the psychiatric drugs.

Many thanks. It's specifically the alternatives that I'm interested in so I think I'll give this book a miss. I've found this happens a lot with the anti-psychiatry movement. I understand the criticisms of neuroleptics but have yet to find an alternative for a family member who "lacks insight" and so won't consider psychotherapy, group work, supported housing or anything! I honestly don't know what people are supposed to do!
