DAD ATTENTION DEFICIT DISORDER is a very powerful episode with Dr. Peter Breggin MD, a Harvard-trained psychiatrist and former Consultant at the National Institute of Mental Health who has been called “The Conscience of Psychiatry” for his many decades of successful efforts to reform the mental health field. His work provides the foundation for modern criticism of psychiatric diagnoses and drugs and leads the way in promoting more caring and effective therapies. His research and educational projects have brought about major changes in the FDA-approved ‘Full Prescribing Information' or labels for dozens of antipsychotic and antidepressant drugs. He continues to educate the public and professions about the tragic psychiatric drugging of America’s children. Dr. Breggin has authored dozens of scientific articles and more than twenty books, including “The Ritalin Fact Book”, “Talking back to Ritalin” and the bestseller Toxic Psychiatry. As a medical-legal expert, Dr. Breggin has unprecedented and unique knowledge about how the pharmaceutical industry too often commits fraud in researching and marketing psychiatric drugs. Most recently, Dr. Breggin has turned his attention to the misuse of the science surrounding COVID-19 and its origins in what he calls "global predators." Dr. Breggin and his wife Ginger R. Breggin have written a new book, COVID-19 and the Global Predators: We are the Prey.
