This site offers information on psychiatric drugs and claims to provide information that your psychiatrist may not. Topics covered include how psychiatric drugs work, the adverse effects of drugs on the brain, and the role of the FDA in the approval of such medications.
Breggin is one of many well-known as generally "anti-psychiatry," which provides for a viewpoint students should be aware of. However, this one piece of information is not terribly credible. If the author has credentials (which he does not provide here) to support or refute Breggin, the materials would have more meaning for students.
