Trainee psychiatrist who seems open to debate

I've just come across an interesting blog by a trainee psychiatrist. I've added a comment to raise awareness of what can go wrong with these drugs.

 

This could be a good chance for us to educate him about our plight. He seems like someone who may be willing to listen and doesn't necessarily think that anti depressants are the be all and end all.
