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?

Bonnie on the Lauren Tenney Show, Thursday, June 26

Dr. Bonnie "BizOMadness" Burstow will be on the Lauren Tenney Show on Thursday, June 26, from 8 to 10 p.m. EST. Here's how the interview is described on Lauren's site:

Tune in to the Talk with Tenney show for a lively conversation shining light on psychiatry and efforts to resist against it, in Canada and across the world. Dr. Bonnie Burstow's work over the years on exposing the abuse and torture people -- particularly women --have endured at the hands of psychiatry is expansive, and dates back decades. Her work on exposing electroshock as a crime against humanity needs attention. You can call in (267) 521 - 0167 to discuss the fight against psychiatry, the battle in academia, being silenced and obstructed, and strategic activism. Different efforts Dr. Burstow has been involved in including Psychiatry Disrupted, Psychiatry Interrogated, and Psychiatry and the Business of Madness will be at hand.

  1. I heard Dr. Burstow's interview. She explained the history of electroshock (ECT) and modern day ECT. It was an excellent interview. I learned much about how psychiatry oppresses and tortures people.
