A great show: My last Wednesday of the month open lines for callers, where my audience becomes my guests. I am beginning each of these last-of-the-month shows with a pithy Dr. Breggin's Keys to Life, and do believe that if you put into practice today's advice, it will change your life. Then we go on to several encouraging, hopeful calls from people who have triumphed over psychiatric drugs or helped their family members do so. I also answer a few tough questions about psychiatric drug...

Today my guest is psychiatrist Penar Miski, MD. In a longer than usual intro, I share many exciting events including the settlement of an important ECT suit. I also describe another settlement of a tardive dyskinesia (TD) case. TD is the dreadful disorder of abnormal movements caused by antipsychotic drugs, which often masquerade as antidepressants, bipolar drugs, mood stabilizers and even sleeping aids. Penar is the wonderful psychiatrist who teaches my on-line course Why and How to Stop...

Peter Gøtzsche, MD is among the bravest, most ethical and scientifically motivated doctors in the history of medicine and psychiatry. As a result, he is now under attack by the organization he helped found, the Cochrane Collaboration, whose purpose in more honorable days was to raise published medical research to a higher ethical and scientific standard. Peter Gøtzsche is too busy responding to the attack to come on my radio show this Wednesday October 3, 2018, so instead I am replaying his...

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...

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...

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...

My guest today is Dr. Ayo Maat, a pastoral counselor and unrelenting activist in Chicago’s inner city.

My guest is product liability attorney Steve Sheller.

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...

Patrick D. Hahn is a genuine scholar of the history of psychiatry who leads us through the turns and twists of psychiatry's struggle with its untruths from the Nazi doctors led by Ernst Rudin to the field of psychotherapy led by Sigmund Freud. It's an endless tale of ignoring what people really suffer from--abuse and rejection in growing up, followed by abuse and rejection in most of what passes for mental health treatment. This is a very thoughtful hour about psychiatry and psychoanalysis...
