Alan Cassels

2018 Conference
Alan Cassels has been immersed in pharmaceutical policy research and healthcare journalism for the past 23 years, mostly studying and writing about how prescription drugs are regulated, marketed, prescribed and used. His niche is in exposing the large gap between the marketing and the science around prescription drugs, medical screening and other forms of disease creation. His books include Selling Sickness: How the World’s Biggest Pharmaceutical Companies are Turning us All into Patients (co-written with Ray Moynihan), The ABCs of Disease Mongering: An Epidemic in 26 Letters, and Seeking Sickness: Medical Screening and the Misguided Hunt for Disease.   In most of his writings Cassels swings his axe against the folly of practitioners and profiteers increasingly selling us tests, treatments and theories of disease that threaten to turn more and more of us into patients. He believes that humans need clean, clear health information as urgently as they need clean water. His recent book, The Cochrane Collaboration: Medicine’s Best Kept Secret (published in 2015) weighs into the history of a stellar international organization which produces some of the world’s highest quality medical information.

2018 Conference
Joanna Moncrieff is a Reader in Critical and Social Psychiatry at University College London, and works as a consultant in community psychiatry in North East London Foundation Trust. She has worked in psychiatry for over 20 years as a clinician and academic. She has challenged the assumption that psychiatric drugs work by targeting an underlying brain abnormality, and proposed an alternative view that they work by inducing an altered mental state. She has also researched and written about the subjective experience of taking psychiatric drugs, decision making, the history of drug treatment and the history, politics and philosophy of psychiatry more generally. She is currently leading a large research programme called RADAR (Research into Antipsychotic Discontinuation And Reduction), funded by the UK government. Joanna is one of the founders and the co-chair person of the Critical Psychiatry Network. This is an international group of psychiatrists, doctors and medical students who are critical of the mainstream view of psychiatry, including the idea that mental disorders are diseases ‘like any other’. The group has campaigned on mental health issues in the United Kingdom, challenging efforts to extend mental health law and criticising the influence of the pharmaceutical industry. Joanna is author of many peer reviewed, scientific papers and several books: The Bitterest Pills: the troubling story of antipsychotic drugs, and The Myth of the Chemical Cure (Palgrave Macmillan) and A Straight Talking Introduction to Psychiatric Drugs (PCCS Books). She is co-editor of Demedicalising Misery and Demedicalising Misery volume II (Palgrave Macmillan). She has an active website and blog (https://joannamoncrieff.com/), and active Twitter account: @joannamoncrieff and also blogs on Mad in America (www.madinamerica.com) from time to time.
