YOU GOT IT WRONG - Jenny Jaffe

The aim of this blog is to highlight persons in the media who tout the chemical imbalance theory as a fact. It's highly unprofessional and misleading to do so and this blog demands that any statements relating to the 'chemical imbalance' myth should either be backed up with supporting evidence or redacted.

Where possible, each person featured on this blog has been contacted via Twitter, email, and/or Facebook and asked to redact their statements or provide supporting evidence.

Once supporting evidence has been shown they will be removed from this blog. Moreover, if they redact their original statements they will also be removed from this blog.

As you will see from these lists, many of the authors are household names and influence those who follow them. This has to stop. The chemical imbalance line was created by the pharmaceutical industry, moreover, Eli Lilly, who launched the first of the SSRIs, Prozac.

Those featured on this list need to do their research.

Article  I Was Born Afraid

Quote I was born with a chemical imbalance. You know, I am mentally ill. I was born mentally ill, and that was nobody's fault. I think there is some mental illness that maybe went unacknowledged in some previous generations, and I think there's a little bit of, you know, anxiety maybe in my parents, but I think I really kind of drew the unlucky genetic straw as far as the sort of level of chemical imbalance goes. I'm a really textbook chemical imbalance case, because I don't have any sort of childhood trauma that, you know, I'm just so lucky in all these ways..
