Critical psychiatrist Joanna Moncrieff joins us to discuss why why much of the “science” supporting psychiatric medication is based more on ideology than evidence.
12 mins of bonus content from episode #062 available exclusively to our Patreon supporters! Critical psychiatrist Joanna Moncrieff answers a round of Quick Fire Questions.
Prof. Alison Yung joins us to discuss psychosis. What is psychosis? How real are hallucinations and delusions? Are the likes of Fight Club and Mr Robot accurate depictions of psychotic episodes, or just Hollywood hyperbole? Who is most susceptible to this illness, and what can we do to intervene?
Prof. Chris Dowrick joins us to talk about depression. How do we define depression? Is depression the result of a “chemical imbalance”? Can you be genetically predisposed to it? Why are doctors so quick to prescribe medication? And is your GP even trained to spot depression? All this and more in this debut episode of the MOWE podcast.
