A series of 15-20 minute long interviews of experts on various topics related to mental and public health. The list of informational interviews and topics will be continuously expanded. The interviews are designed for non-professionals. Topics range from the effect of media on girls's self-images, discussions of violence, IBS, OCD addictions, borderline personality disorders, mental health issues in the deaf, hallucinations, obesity, TMS, depressions, anxiety and stress, self-cutting, medication use with children, eating disorders, medication metabolism and pharmacogenomics, forensic issues, dementia, suicide psychiatric treatment, love, caregiving youth, stuttering, play, PTSD, medication side effects, the effect of war violence on children, and so on. (Any opinion or position expressed in these interviews is not necessarily that of the host or of the Florida Psychiatric Society. Any individual treatment decision must be the product of a doctor-patient interaction. Likewise, new or additional information on each topic may have developed since the time the interviews occurred. Consult your physician.)

Customer Reviews

Cynical doctors gossip over 50 year old articles.

Old, usually white men with alleged 'PhDs' pushing big pharma drugs for mental illness, i.e. Paxil, Zoloft. Academic discussions that would be more in place in the 1920s . Extremely #right wing, #anti-BLM, #anti-weed #anti-minority #pro-whiteprivilege

Conservative views

Episodes in Medicinal Marijuana are negative. "Old style" of critical thinking and scientific reasoning. Like a strict parent.

Doctors who think they are your Fathers

I am writing this review in response to the podcast episode called SPICE AND KRATOM, in which Dr. Robert Moran and the host hypes Kratom as a dangerous and deadly "drug". Notice one thing missing from their argument against Kratom- FACTS. I dare you to find ONE deadly overdose caused by doesnt exist. The host lumps Kratom, a 100% natural plant, in with a synthetic substance called Spice, which I have no knowledge of. Kratom is legal, just like Alcohol (which kills more people each year than crack, cocaine, and heroin COMBINED). Why not give people safer alternatives to potentially dangerous drugs like Alcohol, Cigarettes, and synthetic pain medications? A safer medicine that anyone can buy is a threat to the medical establishment. Kratom has been shown as very successful in helping people who suffer from debilitating pain, and the data thus far shows no sign of danger. You have a brain, it is your choice, not these doctors who try to take away your freedom by limiting your treatment options.

This boils down to one thing... Personal Responsibility. Thank you Dr. Moran, but I can think for myself.
