    135. How We Normalized Mood & Mind Altering Drugs as Mental Healthcare

    How We Normalized Mood & Mind Altering Drugs as Mental Healthcare

    How did we come to a situation where over 20% of the population depends on at least one psychiatric drug, with this figure continuing to rise? Why are these drugs being prescribed by nonspecialists seemingly without consideration of their consequences? There has been a societal shift in how drugs are viewed and normalized as mental health care. The discussion touches on the role of advertising, industry influence, and the medical establishment in shaping this shift.
