"Psychiatry is fundamentally a belief system. It is not evidence-based, despite what you will hear". Dr. Terry Lynch, M.D., psychotherapist

"When all the antidepressant studies that are done, not just the cherry-picked ones, are combined in a meta-analysis (results of ALL studies are combined), the antidepressants are no better than placebo (sugar pill)" Dr. Peter Breggin, Psychiatrist

"Psychiatry...it's pseudo-science. It's actually disproven by the science in the psychiatry journals.
(Regarding 'chemical imbalance') It's basically a product of marketing by drug companies and by the profession of Psychiatry..." Dr. Colin Ross, Psychiatrist.

"Psychiatry mimics science but is not a real science. The symptoms it treats are subjective and have not been demonstrated and cannot be demonstrated at the cellular level. That gives psychiatrists free rein to just experiment and symptom-chase..." Dr. Phillip Sinaikin, Psychiatrist

(Regarding psychiatry) "There is no reliability of diagnosis or science, it's just pseudo-science, it's pretend science" Dr. Margaret Hagen, Professor of Psychology
