In November, Joanna Moncrieff, MD, a British psychiatrist who works as a Senior Lecturer in psychiatry at University College London and a practicing consultant psychiatrist, started her own blog. What's remarkable about this blog is that it is highly critical of psychiatry. Dr. Moncrieff marshals important facts and arguments in this area, and it is probably safe to say that her popularity among her peers is in decline.
The facts that she adduces, however, are indisputable, and her qualities of honesty, courage, and integrity are evident in everything she writes.
So far, she has written six posts.
Whilst all of Dr. Moncrieff's writing is compelling, it was this last quote that particularly caught my attention, and caused me to articulate the following questions:

Dr Joanna Moncrieff is a Senior Lecturer in the Department of Mental Health Sciences at University College London and a practising consultant psychiatrist at the North East London Foundation Trust.
She has spent her academic career re-evaluating the nature and efficacy of psychiatric drugs and exploring the history and politics of psychiatry more generally.
She is the co-chair person of the Critical Psychiatry Network, which was set up in 1998, and has campaigned against the dominance of the biomedical approach to psychiatry, the extension of psychiatric coercion and the influence of the pharmaceutical industry, in alliance with service user groups.
She is the author of "The Myth of the Chemical Cure" published by Palgrave Macmillan, "A Straight Talking Introduction to Psychiatric Drugs" published by PCCS books, and numerous papers and book chapters.

Some of the more noteworthy examples are Dr. Daniel Carlat's work in fighting the corrupting influence of Big Pharma on psychiatric research and education, Robert Whitaker's "Anatomy of an Epidemic", Elliot Valenstein's "Blaming the Brain", and Joanna Moncrieff's "The Myth of the Chemical Cure".
All this appears to constitute a movement to reevaluate our biological orientation, and consider a model of treatment that conforms more with our clinical reality, less with the pharmaceutical industry's ad copy. But what do we call such a movement? Dr. Moncrieff is the co-founder of the Critical Psychiatry Network in Great Britain, a collective of mental health providers who are united in addressing these issues and publically advocating for reforms, especially regarding the policies of the UK's National Health Service.
