EoTFMH0002 – Famous Mental Healthers – António Egas Moniz

  Here is an interesting tale which I think demonstrates some of the extremes involved in the psychiatric industry.

In 1949 he was the first Portuguese National to be awarded the Nobel Prize. Leucotomy is a prefrontal lobotomy. In Moniz’s words “Prefrontal leukotomy is a simple operation, always safe, which may prove to be an effective surgical treatment in...

Fighting for Truth and Justice and the End of Tyranny and Evil in Mental Health and Psychiatry

On April 2nd 1997 my life changed forever. I was a fresh-faced 19 year old student atUniversity College London, a DJ and party promoter with a promising career in front of him and a healthy and active social life.
