#32 Bill Saunders – A Real perspective on Mental Health Care

Bryn Edwards at WA Real published on

Bryn enjoys a very open and frank conversation about mental health care with retired clinical psychologist Bill Saunders. In this episode Bill covers why drugs should be legalised, why drugs aren’t legalised because of a moral argument rather than scientific reasoning, why most drugs aren’t addictive to the majority of users, why funding the police to control drugs use doesn’t work, underlying reasons why addiction does occur and its links to underlying childhood trauma and why this should be the target of proactive rehabilitation, the difference between psychiatry and psychology, why psychiatric meds don’t actually work, why mother-baby bond is so important to future success and resilience, the importance of psychotherapy. Plus a lot lot more on the state of mental health provision.
