Transforming Mad Science and Re-imaging Mental Health Care

The video below comes from the 17th Annual Conference of the International Society for Ethical Psychology and Psychiatry, held November 14-17, 2014 in Los Angeles, California.

Each of the invited speakers was asked to present his or her proposal to “transform mad science and re-imagine mental health care.” 

In this particular video, which is well worth watching, David Cohen, Professor of Social Welfare, UCLA, talks about both self-medication and the abolition of ‘prescription privileges’ – i.e. that in his view we should abolish the need for a doctor’s prescription in order to access drugs and let patients decide themselves whether and when to stop taking medication.
