The Institute of Punitive Psychiatry

“Is Russia entering another dark age of psychiatry?”

“Recent Western press reports have indicated that the Russian psychiatric system might be experiencing a return to the ‘bad old days’ when it was used in part to suppress political dissidents.

President of the human-rights focused psychiatrists’ organisation the Independent Psychiatric Association of Russia (IPA), Dr Yuri Savenko, has kindly agreed to talk to Mind Hacks about the current situation.

In 1983 the main Russian psychiatric association, the All-Union Society of Psychiatrists and Narcologists resigned from the World Psychiatric Association before it could be expelled.”
