The Council for Evidence-based Psychiatry invites you to join global leaders in the critical psychiatry movement for a one-day conference which will address an urgent public health issue: the iatrogenic harm caused by the over-prescription of psychiatric medications.
There is clear evidence that these drugs cause more harm than good over the long term, and can damage patients and even shorten their lives. Yet why are these medications so popular? What harms are they causing? What can be done to address the problem?
This event brings together key experts from both sides of the Atlantic to debate these issues, and we invite you to join the discussion.
Speakers and panellists include: Dr Peter Breggin, Robert Whitaker, Prof Peter Gøtzsche, Dr Joanna Moncrieff, Prof Peter Kinderman, Prof John Abraham and Dr James Davies.

Cost: £85 for delegates, £28 for students, psychiatric trainees, patients / service users and their families (includes lunch)
Location: Whitelands College, University of Roehampton, London SW15 5PU
£70 early bird rate for delegates until 31 July!
