The following 100+ books constitute a substantial (though by no means complete) body of literature exploring the issues addressed by the Future of Mental Health Movement: the lack of legitimacy of the DSM and its labeling model, the differences between medication for illness and chemicals with effects, the epidemic of labeling children with “mental disorders,” the globalization of the American psychiatric model, the strengths and weaknesses of psychotherapy, alternative ways of helping individuals with emotional and mental distress, etc.

I am always wary of self appointed "radical thinkers " who make out their views are more advanced. Often there's a lot of hype going on.
