Anatomy of An Epidemic: Magic Bullets, Psychiatric Drugs, and the Astonishing Rise of Mental Illness in America

 

~~~~~~~~

Friday, August 20, 2010 *** 7 pm • FREE EVENT

Eugene Hilton *** Composer's Ballroom

~~~~~~~~


Robert Whitaker, award-winning author of Mad in America, discusses a medical mystery in his latest book:

Why has the number of Americans considered "disabled mentally ill" tripled over the past two decades?

Whitaker is one of the first journalists to expose the long-term effects of psychiatric medications.

His findings are astonishing and controversial.

Time Magazine review:

"Despite much vaunted claims to the contrary, writes Whitaker, a medical journalist, 'there was never any evidence' in the scientific literature showing that certain mental illnesses result from faulty brain chemistry... Psychiatric drugs have changed the lives of millions, but this book explores how they would have fared without them. It's an alternative worth imagining."
