🎧Expert: Mental Health Recovery According to Allan Horwitz
Listen to our conversation:
I’m so happy to bring you my interview with Allan Horwitz as part of our Experts on Recovery series. Allan is one of my heros. He’s a distinguished professor emeritus at Rutgers University and the leading expert in the sociology of mental health and illness. He’s authored many books, including DSM: A History of Psychiatry’s Bible, Creating Mental Illness, Anxiety: A Short History, and The Loss of Sadness: How Psychiatry Transformed Normal Sorrow into Depressive Disorder.
His work uncovers why we’ve come to medicalize the human experience and how that has created a broken mental health system. He has been elected Chair of the Mental Health Section of the American Sociological Association and the Psychiatric Sociology Section of the Society for the Study of Social Problems.
