…“The following is my endorsement of Dr. Terry Lynch and his work: The prevailing approach to psychiatry reduces people to a biological collection of tissues and organs, human suffering to unidentified brain abnormalities, and the alleviation of human suffering to various substances whose main action is to change how people feel rather than any specific or necessary remedial effect within the body. If anything, the situation is getting worse as the years pass. For the past ten years or more, Terry Lynch has been one of the very few doctors within the medical profession in Ireland who has been prepared to question the psychiatric understanding of and approach to human suffering. He has consistently called for a reappraisal of how human suffering and distress is interpreted and responded to within modern western societies, a reappraisal that I support, that I believe is urgently required in the public interest. Would that there were more enlightened doctors and psychiatrists in the country”…

I am delighted to announce that Dr Terry Lynch’s new book ‘Depression Delusion‘ is out now on Amazon. Terry is most well known for his book best selling book ‘Beyond Prozac‘, and his other book ‘Selfhood‘ comes also highly recommended, however personally I think that ‘Depression Delusion‘ will rock the psychiatric establishment and psychiatric drugs industry to its foundations (or at least it should!). The more widely read it becomes the more unstable the ‘chemical imbalance theory’ will become. It’s about time that someone buried this absurd theory, and Terry has done just that.
My review of ‘Depression Delusion’ can be found here.
Phil Hickey, and Leonie’s Fennel’s, reviews of ‘Depression Delusion‘ can be found here:
“…In this truly remarkable — and meticulously researched — volume, Dr. Lynch annihilates psychiatry’s cherished chemical imbalance theory of depression. Every facet of this theory, which the author correctly calls a delusion, is critically analyzed and found wanting. Example after example is provided of psychiatrists promoting this fiction, the factual and logical errors of which are clearly exposed in Dr. Lynch’s lucid, seamless, and highly readable prose.” (Phil Hickey)
“..This fabulous book is a must for everyone who believes that they are suffering from a brain chemical imbalance (an unwitting Bressie springs to mind). Dr Lynch is one very brave man to take on the so-called ‘experts’ in this forthright manner. It’s a David and Goliath situation. Will the truth win out? Is this generation ready to see that the so-called ‘experts’ are in fact philistines? I sure hope so! Huge respect to Dr Terry Lynch for this much-needed exposé. His book is out in September and I look forward to the fall-out. ‘Depression Delusion Volume One: The Myth of the Brain Chemical Imbalance’ is most definitely a keeper…” (Leonie Fennell)
The following videos give a glimpse into the amazing work Dr Terry Lynch has been doing for sufferers of mental health problems for the past two decades. Dr Lynch is a sincere patient advocate and I recommend ‘Depression Delusion’ to anybody who is suffering from depression, and/or has been told by their doctor or psychiatrist that they have a so called ‘chemical imbalance’. Maybe you are aware that this imbalance is incorrect but you need a reference book to show your doctor? if so, then this book is ideal.
I wish it was written back when my doctor told me that I had a chemical imbalance in 1998. He told me I would have it for life and needed SSRI’s to correct it. Lo and behold, he was wrong .I was conned. We all were. The chemical imbalance is a fraud which has caused immeasurable damage to our understanding of depression and how it should be approached. There are many people that should never have been prescribed SSRI’s, most of these people, suffering distress, could have done better with talk therapy (or at the very least should have been warned of the side effects and withdrawal symptoms of the drugs). The SSRI age has caused a new societal problem, it has created damage to many people, and these people are now left with SSRI induced damage on top of their original condition. We are in the post-SSRI age, the post ‘chemical imbalance’ age, and we are now definitely in the age of the SSRI survivors. Terry’s book ‘Depression Delusion‘ gives validation to all SSRI survivors, and all sufferers of depression. It is essential reading for anyone who is interested in these topics.
