Psychiatry in Crisis

Featuring Anne Harrington, Historian at Harvard University

Join the Center for Science Writings (CSW) for "Psychiatry in Crisis," a lecture by historian Anne Harrington.

A historian of science at Harvard, Harrington will discuss her new book Mind Fixers: Psychiatry’s Troubled Search for the Biology of Mental Illness. The book recounts science’s past and current struggles to understand mental illnesses and find effective treatments. The Wall Street Journal calls Mind Fixers “an excellent, engaging guide to what biological psychiatry has accomplished―and not accomplished―so far.”
