Raised on Ritalin // Chapter 5: The Story of Modern Psychiatry

The development of ADD/ADHD as a disorder - and its treatment - parallels the history of modern psychiatry in the US. How do we decide what a mental disorder or illness is? How do we decide to treat it? How are the drugs used to treat it made and regulated? All fascinating stuff!
