    1. Toxic Psychiatry is a rather frightening and disturbing yet important book, definitely one that everybody should read, because these medications are becoming and prominent and overprescribed these days, and are no longer just used for mental illness Many are used for chronic pain, neurological disease and even as sleeping aids As this book points out, how many drugged psychiatric patients just need a person who will understand them Can compassion go a longer way than happy pills and sedatives [...]

    2. I read Toxic Psychiatry in the late 1990s At that time, I was working as a GP family physician , and I was already seriously questioning the medical approach to emotional and mental health More than any other book, Toxic Psychiatry was a game changer for me Having read it, I realized I could not continue to work as a typical medical doctor I made many changes, and now I have become an author and the provider of a recovery oriented mental health practitioner, with a far richer understanding of em [...]

    3. World renown Harvard trained psychiatrist, author, and researcher Dr Peter R Breggin, M.D unleashes a tour de force in his book Toxic Psychiatry that blows an enormous hole into conventional mainstream medical thought.Dr Breggin completely eviscerates the mainstream chemical imbalance garbage that has been spewed for decades, and he does so in a logical, caring, and unprecedented manner.The book to me is highly reminiscent of Dr Brogans recent landmark book A Mind Of Your Own The Truth About Dep [...]

    4. An excellent read My complaint is that it s a bit dated and it s taken me so long to get to it That said, everything contained is still relative, Mr Breggin makes no bones about calling out individual Psychiatrists, Doctors, the American Medical Association and the APA, as well as the Big Pharma companies pushing a drug agenda and poisoning us with the lie that it s help

    5. An interesting perspective on how medicines do not heal your mental illness, just mask it Best to solve your problems, instead of taking potentially brain damaging medications.

    6. This review is for the 1991 edition This was an interesting read Despite a lot of information being outdated, it still brings to life the very grass root of alternative medicinal approaches, especially engaged talking therapy It makes some good points, which I am happy to say had some productive developments over the years, both in Mental Health and psychotherapy It was interesting to look back and see how it all started.

    7. I just started to read this book since I m just about 2 3 done with The Trauma Model by Colin Ross and I m getting a little board with Ross s book Since I just started to read this book all I can comment on is the few parts that I have read This book was published in 1991 about 23 years ago When you think of psychiatry, you probably think of Schizophrenia Well, that is what I read on first and let me tell you the stuff with the shocking the brain thing it happened often than you think it did to [...]

    8. Medical maverick, Peter Breggin MD, highly opionated, excoriating attacks on the establishment a real hippie aligned in the R.D Laing sane in a mad world philosophy What I really pulled from the book was the description of schizophrenia and other severe illnesses as psychospiritual crises A term I believe I will continue to use Pt preoccupations typically focus on his her place in the universe, often in an exalted or central role that is highly unrealistic Through my own experiences, I have seen [...]

    9. This book takes some of the issues Stasz talks around and adds the detail It carefully deconstructs the genetic and biological basis for so called brain disorders and addictions labelled as mental illness and sets out the reasons why this view is so dominant and dangerous Science has not found a depression gene or a schizophrenic gene and has failed to show that chemical imbalances or changes in the brain s neural circuitry are a cause as opposed to an effect of our mental ill health Breggin cha [...]

    10. A shocking account of the damage done by psychiatric medication and shock treatment As this dates to the early 1990s, you would hope things have improved, but as the author is still appearing as an expert witness at court cases claiming compensation for permanent disability caused by treatment, it seems not.

    11. Examines the assumptions of modern mental health treatment and suggests humane, workable and helpful interventions for the mentally ill Not to be missed if you are interested in this industry, if you are incensed by it, or if you or someone you love are mentally ill.

    12. Too much right now, but good so far and will return to Got out of it what I could for where I am right now.

    13. totally amazing opens up your eyes to the truth of how awful psych meds are and gives you alternatives If you have kids or know someone on meds, read this book and pass it on.

    14. The culmination of 30 years of work Tour de force indictment of psychiatry Extensively notated, irrefutably documented, an inspiring call to action.

    15. Would certainly not believe everything in this but sheds a lot of light on topics that I do truly believe need to change immediately.
