Tomorrow night at 8 pm we are hosting Charles Barber as a speaker. Mr. Barber is formerly a visiting writing professor at Wes as well as an author and lecturer on psychiatry at Yale.

He is also the author of Comfortably Numb: How Psychiatry is Medicating a Nation, a book that takes a serious, critical look at the volume of anti-depressant use and prescription on the United States.
