Review: Psychiatry and the Business of Madness

Antipsychiatry is hard to avoid when seeking mental health help, online and elsewhere. Several years ago, I’d written a detailed critique of Dr. Bonnie Burstow’s Psychiatry and the Business of Madness. This popular tome was intended to provide a rigorous underpinning and academic gravitas to boost antipsychiatry’s credibility. Spoiler alert: I was far from convinced, and found it seriously flawed.

I’ve migrated my review/critique to this site; it can now be found as a series of posts titled Deconstructing Antipsychiatry.
