(NaturalNews) I can't think of a more fitting first guest for Mental Health Exposed. Our mission is to expose the fraud, abuse and incompetence in the mental health industry, as well as promote natural and effective methods of healing. Peter Breggin, MD and I discuss all of the above in the premier of Mental Health Exposed on Natural News Radio.

Peter R. Breggin, M.D. is a Harvard-trained psychiatrist and former full-time consultant with NIMH who is in private practice in Ithaca, New York. Dr. Breggin is the author of more than twenty books including the bestseller Talking Back to Prozac and the medical book Brain-Disabling Treatments in Psychiatry. His most recent book is Medication Madness, the Role of Psychiatric Drugs in Cases of Violence, Suicide and Crime. He is also the author of dozens of peer-reviewed scientific articles, many in the field of psychopharmacology. 



For more than thirty years Dr. Breggin has served as a medical expert in many civil and criminal suits, including product liability suits against the manufacturers of psychiatric drugs. His work provided the scientific basis for the original combined Prozac suits. His efforts as a medical expert and his scientific publications have resulted in the FDA changing numerous official drug labels. He has been involved in landmark cases on behalf of patient rights in regard to antidepressants, antipsychotic drugs and tardive dyskinesia, electroshock, and lobotomy.

Here are some of the show's highlights:

Psychiatry doesn't know what to do with the mentally ill. Dr. Breggin tells about his first experience, as a young intern, in which he was warned that he might "harm the patients" by talking to them regularly and treating them with decency. Ultimately, his actions led to the successful release of several neglected, back ward patients.

Psychiatry has always been a public abuse. Dr. Breggin pulls no punches here. It is always interesting to hear an expert tell the truth about his own profession and back it up with experience. Dr. Breggin exposes the APA's goal to turn entire communities into mental health hospitals, which it has successfully accomplished. He backs up his statements with a concise history of psychiatry traced from the publicly documented minutes of the APA's board of directors

How psychiatry turned to over-prescribing medicine as a way to maintain control of the mental health field. The APA couldn't compete with people who actually wanted to help their patients, so it turned to a non-researched, unverified medical model of treating mental illness based on the fabricated notion "biochemical imbalance." Again, this sordid tale is revealed in Dr. Breggin's history of psychiatry and the APA.

Most important of all, we discuss how to actually help people

How people with a variety of "mental disorders" can become free within minutes and maintain their mental health with a few month's treatment, as proven by practices in Finland and examples from Dr. Breggin's own practice in New York.

We discuss various approaches to mental health and recovery, which include Dr. Breggin's comments on the most overlooked cause of mental stress, which is basic human trust, or lack thereof.

Finally, the ultimate solution may be to learn to become a people whisperer! I'll take credit for inspiring Dr. Breggin to use the term for the first time. Admittedly, so much of what we discussed may be idealistic, but someone needs to lead the way to a more humane, empathetic mental health system that is based on trust and genuine human contact, not biochemical imbalance. These kinds of discussions are important.
