Peter Breggin is a psychiatrist and critic of shock treatment (which gained him the title “conscience of psychiatry”).
More specifically, he was born in 1936 in New York and gained recognition for his “controversial” views on the use of psychiatric medications and electroconvulsive therapy (ECT), advocating for alternative approaches to mental health treatment.
He has dedicated his career to promoting compassionate and ethical practices within the field of psychiatry.
Peter believes that treating mentally ill patients with pharmaceutical drugs was often inferior to treating them in a more holistic manner, including figuring out – and dealing with – the cause.
Additionally, he argues that medication amplifies and worsens the symptoms.
During 2021, Peter and his wife published a great book in which they expose the global predators preying on unknowing citizens of the world.
Peter joined me for a conversation about all of this.
