The Psychiatry Letter
Independent humanistic thinking that takes science seriously.
See what your colleagues think:
"I love the newsletter so far. It is extremely well written. It is easy for a busy practitioner like me to read a relatively short article and gain a lot. As a psychiatrist who sees all patients for psychotherapy, I appreciate the letter's broad view of psychiatry and what psychiatrists do—far beyond being prescription-writing machines." (I. H. MD, New Mexico)
“I recommend the website and newsletter for my patients and their families. The topics are so presented that the lay public can benefit from it. It helps me support my work with them. It provides information in a way that is easy to understand to anybody.” (D.P., New Mexico)
"Bravo, it’s about time there was some down to earth talk from a respected academic regarding the real world of treating patients." (T.C. New York)
“The 'PL Reflections' really remind me to think and be aware of our shared humanity…." (T.T, Georgia)
