Psychologist and author challenges the myth of a "genetic basis" of psychiatric problems.

Jay Joseph is a licensed psychologist in California who has made international waves by questioning a central myth in the psychiatric industry: the "genetic cause" of mental health problems. Jay shows that the idea of a "mental illness gene" is unproven, harmful, misleading and just plain wrong. Jay has written two books on the topic: The Missing Gene, (2006), The Gene Illusion, (2004).

Jay supported the MindFreedom hunger strike on the scientific panel. To see the results of that hunger strike click here.

MindFreedom News Hour

Wednesday, 18 April 2007

4 pm Eastern (1 pm Pacific)

Guest Robert Whitaker is a journalist who exposed the history and current practice of USA psychiatry.

Psychiatrist Loren Mosher said this about Robert Whitaker's book _Mad in America_: "Investigative journalism at its scholarly, perceptive, and explanatory best. Mad in America presents an insightful, courageous expose of how madness went from 'out of sight, out of mind,' to be a source of massive corporate profits. A must read for anyone with a friend or family member labeled 'mentally ill,' for psychiatric 'survivors,' mental health professionals, and those interested in the history of science and the corporate buyout of a profession."
