videos featuring Dr. Mark Horowitz -- a great way to learn/educate about antidepressants and antidepressant withdrawal syndrome


Recommended Posts

There are a number of videos featuring Dr. Mark Horowitz presenting his work on psychiatric drug tapering and psychiatric drug withdrawal syndrome. These videos could be a great resource for any SA members wishing to learn more about the subject, as well as a great way to educate family and friends about what we're dealing with.  


This video produced by After Skool, featuring entertaining and watchable colorful, hand-drawn animation, provides an excellent 30-minute overview of the entire topic, including historical background, up-to-date research, debunking the myth of chemical imbalance, the ins and outs of antidepressants, an introduction to hyperbolic tapering, and more. If you only want to watch/share one video, this one is a great choice!




The following videos are interviews with Dr. Mark Horowitz about his research and expertise. They are each at least an hour in length in more of a talking-head format.
