Mad in America: Peter Breggin and Michael Cornwall – Stop the Psychiatric Abuse of Children

In this new MIA Radio podcast and interview, Peter Breggin and I are interviewed by Miranda Spencer about the psychiatric abuse of children, who are being harmed by psychiatric drugs, labels/diagnoses, ECT, and by the new FDA-approved electrical brain device that is placed on the foreheads of children all night long, who are diagnosed with ADHD – the Monarch eTNS. We offer suggestions for compassionate, trauma-informed, humanistic alternatives to relieve the emotional distress of children and teens. We also discuss the initiative we recently launched called SPAC! (Stop the Psychiatric Abuse of Children), a grassroots human rights project.

Madness Radio: Madness and Renewal Michael Cornwall | Madness Radio

First Aired 9-1-2012

What if people struggling with madness could explore their emotions in a supportive sanctuary? Do frightening ‘psychotic’ experiences have the power to transform and heal? Is breakdown also breakthrough? Michael Cornwall became a therapist after surviving his own crisis — without medication or psychiatric treatment. For more than 30 years he has worked in the tradition of Carl Jung and R.D. Laing to support people to go through psychotic states in medication-free community settings, including John Weir Perry’s Diabasis House in the 1970s.
