Is there an epidemic of mental illness?

June 13th, 2011 · No Comments · Uncategorized

The New York Review of Books features an interesting article about the epidemic of mental illness in the US, which reviews three new books about the large number of people proscribed anti-depressant and other psycho-active medication, and questioning how effective those treatments are. The move to psycho-pharmacology, the reasons why it happened, and the uncertain results, are all well worth discussing, however many people have gained great relief and help from such medications and I would not wish to denigrate or deny their experiences. Others have had rather less positive experiences.
