Today, Wednesday, May 1st, is your introduction to a remarkable psychiatrist on The Dr. Peter Breggin Hour.  I am often asked, “Are there any other psychiatrists like you?”   By psychiatrist like me, they usually mean psychiatrists who care so much about their patients that they do psychotherapy and avoid giving them drugs.  They might also mean a psychiatrist who will fight for patient rights.   Well, there are not enough psychiatrists like that, but they do exist and more and more of them are surfacing.  Today’s guest is psychiatrist Gail Tasch from Wisconsin–and today she “came out” on the Dr. Peter Breggin Hour.  There is much to be gained from this hour, including the effectiveness of treating newly admitted inpatients without starting them on drugs or by starting them on minimal drugs or by reducing some of the medications they were admitted on. Working within the conventional psychiatric system, Dr.  Tasch  manages to help people.  Also, we can learn from her journey from more traditional psychiatry into the reality that drugs are dangerous neurotoxins.   An enlightening, lively hour.
