With psychologist Michael Corrigan, a very strong show about what do children really need!  Michael is a researcher, teacher and author who has devoted his professional life, as well as his family life, to caring for children.   Michael’ focus is on what can we do about the dreadful plight of foster care children who get drugs instead of real help?  I chime in on the nature of that real help.  Foster children need the very same thing that more fortunate children need—loving, informed parents and substitute parents.  How do we achieve that?  Remember to call in every Wednesday at 4-5 pm NY time to join the conversation.  The call in number is 888 874 4888.  To listen to the show, go to www.prn.fm.

A wonderful show with someone you really should get to know:  Educator Denise Herrenbruck, who this week received the Fifth Honored Guest Blogger Award.  She tells the story of her father and his tragic outcome at the hands of geriatric psychiatry; but it's much more than that.  It's about the inspiring place of love and relationship in our lives and the changing expressions of those vital elements at different stages of our lives.  Together Denise and I read some dialogue between her and father from her new blog on www.breggin.com.

I loved this show, so did the one caller I took, and I think you will, too.   Remember you can call in to the show every Wednesday at 4-5 pm NY time.  Wednesday September 26 at 4 pm is Live Talk Call-In for general questions.  Listen on www.prn.fm and call in at 888 874 4888 to get on the show live.   My book the Heart of Being Helpful is a great accompaniment to this presentation of the Dr. Peter Breggin Hour.

Today was Open Lines Friday where my audience becomes my guest and listeners call in to comment and to ask questions.  Today my callers focused on recovery from medications.  What do we need for ourselves to enhance recovery after we’ve been off psychiatric medications for months or years?  How long does recovery take?   How much exercise is enough?  What about counseling or diet? Guest callers contributed good ideas, encouragement and inspiration.  Remember that the show is live every Wednesday at 4-5 pm on www.prn.fm.  The phone number for calling the show is 888 874 4888; but the show itself is heard on line at www.prn.com

Today my audience was my guest and we had many wonderful callers.  Many were informative, some were challenging, and several were deeply touching as people shared their struggles and I tried to offer comfort and direction.  I am getting to like this  format better and better.   I now have a dedicated email for the radio show, www.bregginlive.com.   Listen to this hour and email me how you liked it and how it might be improved.  This is becoming my new direction.   I’ll continue to have official guests; but my audience is now my best guest.   You can listen to the Dr. Peter Breggin Hour, every Wednesday at 4 pm NY Time, on www.prn.fm.  You can call in toll free with 888 874 4888.   And check out the new PRN app.

This was open mic hour where you, my marvelous listening audience, get a chance to tell your story and to ask questions.  Today we had many very uplifting stories and many interesting and important questions.  I offer the best I can in the way of advice, direction and encouragement.  Although I've often taken calls like this on other people's radio shows, this was my first show of its kind.  It was such a success with so many callers that I’m planning another purely call-in show for Wednesday August 29, 2018 at 4 pm NY Time.  As always call in to 888 874 4888.  I love doing this and I hope you will love listening and calling in.    My current plan is to offer an open microphone on the last Wednesday of every month and maybe more often depending on your participation.  Thanks for being such a great audience!

Where are all the young psychiatrists?  Well, they are beginning to express themselves.  My guest is psychiatrist Pinar Miski, MD, who teaches my live on-line course, “Why and How Stop Taking Psychiatric Drugs,” which you can find onwww.breggin.com.   Pinar brings serious clinical experience as a psychiatric consultant on medical wards and also as a person knowledgeable in the field of nutrition.   She offers a caring, straightforward and sound approach to helping people that may help you rediscover your faith in yourself.  It may even put some healthy chinks in the psychiatric armor.  This was Pinar's first radio show ever and it was 5/5 stars.

My guest today is Dr. Ayo Maat, a pastoral counselor and unrelenting activist in Chicago’s inner city.   In a far-ranging discussion we look at what people living in poverty and disability in the inner cities really need.  We also describe our mutual efforts in the 1990s that successfully stopped a racist eugenic federal program in the United States, including Chicago.  Some of what you discover may be surprising as we learn from Dr. Maat ‘s extensive experience as a reformer confronting discrimination in many areas of life including race, poverty, and mental disability.  Her heroic life as a reformer is inspiring.   Also, remember that we are now taking callers live every Wednesday at 4 pm NY time at 888 874 4888 and that you can email your thoughts about the program to bregginlive@hotmail.com.

My guest is product liability attorney Steve Sheller.  Steve is unquestionably one of the strongest, most effective and most feared attorneys in the world—a threat of giant proportions to unscrupulous drug companies.   In a fast-moving show, we focused on the horrific nefarious activities of the drug company J & J (Johnson & Johnson) and its subsidiary Janssen, as well as the drug industry in general.  The issues ranged from J & J’s Risperdal causing tardive dyskinesia as well as enlarged breasts in boys to their infamous talcum powder causing ovarian cancer.   We looked at how drug company money spreads corruption throughout society.  We explored the government interventions that seem necessary, including finally sending drug company executives to jail when they are proven to have committed criminal activities.      Ironically, when I got off the radio, I opened an email from the journal JAMA Psychiatry, and at the top is an advertisement for a fake science conference, "Advances in the Neurobiology of Mental Illness," presented by the New York Academy of Sciences.  It is sponsored by Janssen and by Johnson & Johnson.  What a fearful sight: Janssen and its parent company J & J collaborating with the NY Academy of Sciences and the AMA's psychiatric journal.   Even the billions of dollars that Steve has caused them to forfeit has not stopped the drug companies.  The Pharmaceutical Empire has made itself  unstoppable--for now, anyway.

My wonderful listening audience, thanks to you our first Open Mic Wednesday on the Dr. Peter Breggin Hour was a great success.  I had announced it three days earlier on my Frequent Alerts and the moment the hour began at 4 pm New York time the phone lines lit up.  I took half-a-dozen great calls from India, Canada and across the US.  Questions like “Is schizophrenia curable?” and “Do bipolar people have to keep having manic episodes if they don’t take drugs?” as well as “How do I help my son sleep?” brought thoughtful and hopeful exchanges.  A Chicago colleague I hadn’t heard from in decades stimulated enlightening reminisces about how Ginger and I led the successful fight to stop the racist, eugenic Federal Violence Initiative in the 1980s.   PRN did a truly professional job of handling the calls smoothly and keeping the show in a great rhythm.   I will soon announce another Open Mic Wednesday.   Keep up with the Dr. Peter Breggin Hour and our other activities by joining the free Frequent Alerts on www.breggin.com

Thanks, Peter
