The first in what will hopefully prove to be a brand new series of live YouTube debates with audience Q&A.
The topic up for debate today… Is antidepressant medication ever useful? featuring two of the UK’s most eminent psychiatrists, Dr. Joanna Moncrieff and Prof. Carmine Pariante.
Joanna Moncrieff (@joannamoncrieff) is a Reader in Critical and Social Psychiatry at University College London, and a practising psychiatrist with an interest in the history, philosophy and politics of psychiatry, and particularly in the use, misuse and misrepresentation of psychiatric drugs.

Carmine Pariante (@ParianteSPILab) is Professor of Biological Psychiatry at Kings College London, where he also leads the Stress, Psychiatry and Immunology (SPI) Lab, investigating the relationship between stress, mental health and the immune system.
