The Truth

I don’t know who posted this to my ALT-therapies4bipolar Yahoogroup, but there is an article by Dr. Peter Breggin, one of the few psychiatrists who never sold out, in The Huffington Post today. It’s a great article, and you can read the whole thing here:

Here is the part-paragraph that summed it up for me:

“Psychiatric drugs — like all psychoactive substances — work by impairing brain function, and when we’re under stress and have problems to solve we need a fully functioning brain and mind. We need to be able to take complete responsibility for ourselves and to think through our problems with rational clarity. All psychiatric drugs impair those higher mental functions.”

Wow. Thanks, Dr. Breggin
