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

Thanks, Peter
