Thanks Tom Cruise, The Huffington Post, 17 Jul 2005
"On June 25, 2005 Tom Cruise did the unthinkable on TV. ... he criticized psychiatry and drew attention to its genuine flaws and failings. ... Tom said that psychiatry had a long history of abusing people, including electroshock. He said that antidepressants can only 'mask the problem' and that 'these drugs are very dangerous.'"
