you know, Ibid, you were the first to turn me onto Moncrieff. I can't tell yet if you've enlightened me or ruined me.

I think she has something interesting to say. The trust she works for includes the original Bedlam http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bethlem_Royal_Hospital not that that is so important in itself but she does work in the mainstream and that makes her all the more credible.

These links are not terribly academic but you can hear her speaking to a lay audience here http://www.madnessradio.net/madness-radio-bipolar-medication-myths-joanna-moncrieff She starts by talking about her time as a student.

This link is the first part of a talk, again not at all academic but you can get some more idea of her, not at all stuffy. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kS8Pxz6xwsM&feature=related
