Anatomy of an Epidemic - Whitaker, Robert.

Magic Bullets, Psychiatric Drugs, and the Astonishing Rise of Mental Illness in America


In this astonishing and startling book, award-winning science and history writer Robert Whitaker investigates a medical mystery: Why has the number of disabled mentally ill in the United States _tripled_ over the past two decades? Interwoven with Whitaker's groundbreaking analysis of the merits of psychiatric medications are the personal stories of children and adults swept
up in this epidemic.

As _Anatomy an Epidemic_ reveals, other societies have begun to alter their use of psychiatric medications and are now reporting much improved outcomes … so why can't such change happen here in the United States?
