Mental Health and Wellness Radio

Apr 20, 2012

"Mental Health and Wellness Radio" attended the 2012 CASRA Conference in San Mateo, Calif. to catch up with award-winning journalist and science writer Robert Whitaker. He speaks with host Jenee Darden about the pharmaceutical-drug industry, how some studies show short-term medical use results in higher rates of recovery than long-term use and why there is a growing trend of children being prescribed psychiatric medication. Whitaker is the author of "Mad in America" and "Anatomy of an Epidemic: Magic Bullets, Psychiatric Drugs, and the Astonishing Rise of Mental Illness in America."
