Meet Linda Lagemann, Ph.D. Licensed Clinical Psychologist
There are two key things Dr. Lagemann is currently working on on Capitol Hill and at the State level. It’s important to her to do media and briefings to raise awareness about: 1) the overmedicating of the population with psychiatric drugs. Dr. Lagemann is especially concerned about the impact on children’s developing brains.2) the resurgence of electroshock therapy (ECT) and its implications for new electrical brain devices, some of them implantable, that are the next big trend in psychiatry.
Emerging research from non-pharma backed sponsors is revealing the benefits of many of the commonly prescribed psychiatric drugs have been falsified or exaggerated and the risks downplayed or out-right covered up. People need accurate information to be able to give informed consent.

Dr. Lagemann is a frequent guest on radio programs across the country and was featured in the independent film The Big Lie: American Addict 2. She writes and speaks about the current state of the mental health field and potential harmful emerging trends to watch out for.
