In the her ground-breaking book, The Myth of the Chemical Cure [30], Dr. Joanna Moncrieff, a prominent British psychiatrist at University College London, stated that psychiatric drugs actually create abnormal brain states instead of counteracting them, and that the concept of chemical imbalance rather reflects successful marketing by the dominant pharmaceutical industry.

This study "confirms that the full degree of harm of antidepressants is not reported," says Joanna Moncrieff, a psychiatrist and researcher at University College London who was not involved in the study.

...
"This is obviously important in the debate about school shootings in the U.S. and in other places where the perpetrators are frequently taking antidepressants," Moncrieff says.
Taken together with other research-including studies that suggest antidepressants are only marginally better than placebos some experts say it is time to reevaluate the widespread use of these drugs. "My view is that we really don't have good enough evidence that antidepressants are effective, and we have increasing evidence that they can be harmful," Moncrieff says.

London NHS psychiatrist Joanna Moncrieff is one such dissenting researcher. But she has conducted a far wider examination of psychiatric drugs, and has endeavoured to expose the "myth" of anti-psychotics. She claims there is no sufficient evidence to support their long-term use and they cause brain damage, a fact which is being "fatally" overlooked. Plus, because of a cocktail of vicious side-effects, anti-psychotics almost triple a person's risk of dying prematurely.

Moncrieff, also a senior lecturer at University College London, particularly strikes out at her own profession, psychiatry, claiming it is ignoring the negative evidence for anti-psychotics. In her book, The Myth of The Chemical Cure, Moncrieff argues the increasing prescribing of these drugs is unleashing an epidemic of drug-induced problems. She argues, effectively, that psychiatry is guilty of gross scientific misconduct.
...
Moncrieff is a hard-nosed scientist, so she is respectfully reserved. But her carefully-chosen words are still alarming. "It is as if the psychiatric community can not bear to acknowledge its own published findings," she writes.
...
Moncrieff does acknowledge there is evidence for the short-term effectiveness of anti-psychotics.
...
For Moncrieff, this is a wheeze because there's no evidence that anti-psychotics act directly on the "symptoms" - paranoia, delusions, hallucinations - of those diagnosed with psychosis. There's nothing anti-psychotic about anti-psychotics.
...
Moncrieff - like her fellow psychiatrists in a group called the Critical Psychiatry Network - asks services to look seriously at non-drug approaches, such as the Soteria Network in America. She believes psychiatrists such as herself should no longer have unparalleled powers to forcibly detain and treat patients with anti-psychotics. Instead, they should be "pharmaceutical advisers" engaging in "democratic drug treatment" with patients. Psychiatrists should be involved in "shared decision-making" with patients, and would have to go to civil courts to argue their case for compulsory treatment. "Psychiatry would be a more modest enterprise" writes Moncrieff, "no longer claiming to be able to alter the underlying course of psychological disturbance, but thereby avoiding some of the damage associated with the untrammeled use of imaginary chemical cures."

Most studies of drug-naïve patients did not report or detect differences in total brain volume, global grey matter or CSF volumes between patients and controls, including three studies of untreated patients with long-term illness," stated the researchers, including Dr Joanne Moncrieff, of the Department of Mental Health Sciences, University College London.

...
Dr Moncrieff, also a London NHS psychiatrist, told psychminded.co.uk: "The psychiatric community still seem unworried by this [the possible effects on the brain of anti-psychotic medication] and continue to focus on the idea that schizophrenia is causing the brain damage."
