Interview with Bandy Lee

Larry S. Sandberg, M.D.

There are three overlapping areas of interest that I would like to discuss that are relevant to readers of the Journal:

I: The ethical and moral considerations that permit or prohibit psychiatrists from making statements about public figures they have not personally examined.

II: Examining the President: Acknowledging that some mental health professionals feel it is an ethical and moral obligation to speak up about President Trump’s mental state, what can be said about him?

III: President Trump and the current cultural Zeitgeist: If President Trump is a “mirror” of our country, what is he showing us? How do you think he is shaping public opinion?

I. Should We Speak Up?

Sandberg: You are an international expert on violence and violence prevention. You are the editor and contributor to The Dangerous Case of Donald Trump. How did this happen?

Lee: Thank you. My position is slightly anomalous in that, while I am a psychiatrist, I have been involved in violence prevention from a global and public health perspective and have collaborated with specialists of many disciplines, as well as implementers and policymakers. My main role through the World Health Organization has been to help translate and make scholarship accessible to government officials and policymakers. Domestically, I have been advising city and state governments on prison reform and violence prevention programming.
