Reflections on the First Month of Talk with Tenney In a burst of energy in the middle of the night of May 16, 2014, I decided to establish a call-in radio talk show. Uncertain of what this really entailed, I embarked on this journey and have become more amazed with each step. One of the main findings of the (de)VOICED, research I conducted through the PhD Program in Environmental Psychology at the Graduate Center, City University of New York, was that when people speak out against the biomedical model of psychiatry, they are silenced and retaliated against. I thought, in the middle of the night a month ago, that if there was a public place that people could call-in and discuss their experiences with and perspectives on psychiatry, that they would. I am amazed at the response and thank all of the people who have assisted in making this happen! The first month of the Talk with Tenney show, which airs 9-11 PM Eastern Time has been listened to over 3,000 times, has had dozens of callers, and two specials on electroshock. Guests, from the United States and Canada have included people who are: Psychiatric survivors; Users of psychiatry; Advocates; Activists; Life Coaches; Peer workers; Spiritualists; Veterans; Authors of books and articles on psychiatry and anti-psychiatry; Psychologists who work to expose psychiatry; and Those who have stumbled over the show, calling in to learn about these human rights violations that psychiatry commits, which they thought were long-ended. www.Laur

Once you know a crucial fact about what gets called "mental illness", the debate about whether or not President Donald J. Trump is "mentally ill" disappears, and what is left is what really matters. What really matters is that President Trump apparently has no desire to change behavior that has been described as totally self-absorbed, self-referential, misogynist, racist, xenophobic, and otherwise abusive. It's ironic that the arguments on both sides of the debate about whether or not Trump is "mentally ill" are based on the one "alternative fact": that deciding who is "mentally ill" is a science. That could not be farther from the truth. Paula J. Caplan, Ph.D., is a clinical and research psychologist and currently Associate at the DuBois Institute, Hutchins Center for African and African American Research, Harvard University. She is the author of They Say You're Crazy: How the World's Most Powerful Psychiatrists Decide Who's Normal; The Myth of Women's Masochism; Don't Blame Mother: Mending the Mother-Daughter Relationship; and numerous other books, chapters, and articles in the academic and popular media.
