I’m adding books and links to people who support Neurodivergence, or information from my choice of Heroes who just think differently…

History of Mainstream Western Psychiatry

I’m pasting a link here to; ‘From Freud to Fluoxetine – A history of Psychiatry’ by Mark L. Ruffalo.  Mark serves as an instructor of psychiatry and social work at several academic institutions in Florida. A potentially useful resource into how the human mind/brain has been viewed/treated in the past… I’ve added a sensitive content warning.
