Out of Their Own Mouths

“We have allowed ourselves to be corrupted in this marketplace with lucrative consulting to industry, speaker panels, boards of directors and visits from industry representatives bearing gifts.”
2006 Dr. Steven Sharfstein, former president of the American Psychiatric Association (APA)

“Our [psychiatric] field as a whole is progressively being purchased lock, stock, and barrel by the drug companies: this includes the diagnoses, the treatment guidelines, and the national meetings.”
May 2007, Daniel J. Carlat, assistant clinical professor of psychiatry at Tufts University
