Investigating The Rise of the Mental Illness Epidemic in America
We read a lot of content here at CoSozo and some really makes us stop in our tracks. The focus of today's show, the content and focus of author Robert Whitaker's book, Anatomy of an Epidemic: Magic Bullets, Psychiatric Drugs, and the Astonishing Rise of Mental Illness in America. Robert joins us for this disturbing, challenging, and yet even hopeful conversation as we wind our way through our history of mental illness, medications, and a lot more.

You'll be astounded by the numbers presented in today's show as well as the data behind it. An investigative reporter, Robert does an excellent job of presenting the data and also the background information that is behind that data. But as we all know, our data represents our friends, our neighbors, our children, our loved ones. And it is our responsibility in our society to not only know where we've been, but also where we're heading, why, and what we can do as individuals to contribute to our future.

Fascinating topic, captivating guest, and more information than we could fit in an hour. For more information about Robert's book and his work today, please visit www.madinamerica.com or email him at rwhitaker@madinamerica.com.
