Joanna Moncrieff's The Myth of the Chemical Cure is a ground breaking book and to me, is the clearest ever condemnation of psychiatric drugs. It is extremely well written and easy to absorb and the referencing is excellent. I did not want to put the book down once I'd started to read it. I've always wanted to find a book like this; a book which would confirm my own long held belief that psychiatrists have it all wrong about mental illness and that it is not the result of a chemical imbalance. Psychiatric drugs harm the body and often have horrendous side effects; it is important that everyone realises that drugs are not the only answer for mental health problems. Joanna Moncrieff has spoken out and spoken out loudly and her book is essential reading for everyone.
