What is the BizOMadness Blog?

This blog is devoted to raising critical awareness of psychiatry generally. It is likewise devoted to the antipsychiatry research projects, publications, and related activities of Dr. Bonnie Burstow. Especially foregrounded are The Psychiatry Project, The Madness Project, and "Psychiatry and the Business of Madness". Related to one another, The Psychiatry Project and The Madness Project involve hundreds of interviews, a dozen focus groups, analysis of several hundred documents and their activation, and dedicated periods of institutional observation. The culmination of both as well as of decades of related interviews and activities is "Psychiatry and the Business of Madness" (timely updates on its publication will be provided)--a cutting edge book in which psychiatry is investigated from multiple angles and which begins to tackle the inevitable question: So if we get rid of psychiatry, where do we go from there?

The Bonnie Burstow Scholarship in Antipsychiatry

After a seven and a half year struggle to make something like this happen--terrific news--a scholarship in antipsychiatry has just been established at University of Toronto--a wonderful breakthrough for besides that this area is of monumental importance, there are no such scholarships anywhere else.  The scholarship is available to thesis students at Ontario Institute in Studies in Education at University of Toronto conducting antipsychiatry inquiry. For details on the award, including its significance and how to get involved, see http://www.oise.utoronto.ca/oise/About_OISE/Bonnie_Burstow_Scholarship.html
