Join us for part three of our discussion with psychiatrist, Harvard Professor, and agent of change Dr. Chris Palmer.  He lays out why it is important to distinguish between disorders of the brain and conditions with external causes when treating patients and how prescribing psychotropic medication without sufficient consideration of metabolism has led to worse outcomes. Finally, he shares his approach to prescribing and speculates on how appropriate consideration of mitochondrial functioning will change the field. Stick around for a special after show where there's a behind-the-scenes peak of the team considering the real-world implications of sharing Dr. Palmer's work.
