‘Think everyone labeled “schizophrenic” should be put on drugs for the rest of their lives?
Here is the “Trailer for “Open Dialogue,” a 74-minute documentary film on the Western Lapland Open Dialogue Project, the program presently getting the best results in the developed world for first-break psychosis — approximately 85% full recovery, a far majority off antipsychotic medication.”
In the film, Daniel Mackler, a therapist himself for 10 years, travels to Finland to interview the people involved in this alternative program. He says that they have a success rate of 85%. Robert Whitaker says that the recovery rate is actually 90%.
