Mental Health Alert!

Dr. Linda Sonna, B.A., M.Ed., Ph.D.

The first three books below reveal the dark side of Western culture's medication madness: Major and minor tranquilizers, antidepressants, and amphetamines have been driving the exploding rates of mental illness and exacerbating depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, attention deficit disorder, and schizophrenia. Moreover, mental, emotional, and behavioral conditions that were routinely cured with psychotherapy in the past have now become lifelong sentences. Despite the psychiatric community's insistence that "talk therapy" cannot relieve psychic suffering and entrenched belief that problems are caused by brain disorders, researchers have not been able to identify aberrant genes, chemical imbalances, or disease. The impressive structural abnormalities in PET-scan images of schizophrenics and ADHD sufferers brains are the result of their long-term medication use. See the of review of Mad In America.
