Dr. Joanna Moncrieff

Dr. Joanna Moncrieff is a Senior Lecturer in psychiatry at University College London and a practising consultant psychiatrist. She has written articles critical of various psychiatric drug treatments, including lithium, antidepressants and neuroleptics.

Joanna's research consists of an analysis of all aspects of psychiatric drug treatment. She is interested in the nature and function of diagnosis in modern psychiatric practice, and in the history, politics and philosophy of psychiatry more generally.

Then followed Dr Joanna Moncrieff, who discussed the myth of the chemical imbalance, and how it took such a hold on society. She also added that significant drivers of disability are the psychological effects of taking medication long-term â€" taking drugs day after day make it increasingly difficult to think of oneself as anything other than a chronically ill patient.

Dr Joanna Moncrieff, consultant psychiatrist and senior lecturer at University College London, will also discuss the findings of her recent paper on the rise of mental health disability.[2]Â Using Department of Work & Pensions data, her paper shows that the number of claimants for mental disorders rose by 103% from 1995 to 1.1 million in 2014, while claimants for other conditions fell by 35% in the same period. Two thirds of mental disorder claimants in 2014 were classified as having a depressive or anxiety disorder.
Moncrieff concludes: “The increasing use of all types of drugs for mental disorders, and especially antidepressants, in England since the 1990s does not appear to have improved the rising trends in disability claims for these conditions. We need to have a serious rethink about current levels of prescribing as it may well be that, for various reasons, the drugs are in fact contributing to the disability burden, resulting in significant social and economic costs.�
