Origins of Psychiatry
From its beginnings in the 1700s, using the practices of confining, restraining and isolating people with mental problems in institutions, psychiatrists have cashed in on human misery.
“Psychiatry is probably the single most destructive force that has affected society within the last sixty years.”
—Dr. Thomas Szasz, M.D. Professor of Psychiatry Emeritus
