Do you have a biochemical imbalance? Simple truths about psychiatry

Do you have a biochemical imbalance? Are any such imbalances the cause of things like depression, or anxiety or schizophrenia?

Trailblazing psychiatrist Dr. Peter Breggin – in Part 1 of his “Simple Truths about Psychiatry” video series – looks at these questions and answers with an emphatic “no”.

Below you can watch an 8 minute video in which he debunks the myth of biochemical imbalance and looks at what is known about “mental illness”.


Further information may be found on his website and in his many books, including “Psychiatric Drug Withdrawal: A Guide for Prescribers, Therapists, Patients and Their Families.”
