About Dr. McKenzie

Dr. Clancy McKenzie is one of the world’s foremost experts on Schizophrenia and mental health. As a youth and young adult, Dr. McKenzie was always regarded as a very compassionate person and an explorer. While in college he often shared his stories of counseling homesick campers when he was ten years old – and exploring the world, hitchhiking throughout Europe, into Asia and across North Africa, sometimes alone on the Sahara Desert. So it came as no surprise to friends and family when, early in his career, he embarked upon an unknown path in his quest to help others.

After graduating from the University of Michigan Medical School in 1962, McKenzie’s life work focused squarely on the study of the human mind in pursuit of helping those afflicted with mental disorders. Following internship, he studied adult and child psychiatry and psychoanalysis with top experts in the field at some of the best institutions – to gain overview of what was known in the field at the time. He trained at the Menninger School of Psychiatry, the Philadelphia Psychiatric Center and the Philadelphia Psychoanalytic Institute.

At a time when an apple was something Steve Jobs gave to his first grade teacher, Dr. Clancy McKenzie happened upon a discovery that would forever change not just his life, but his patients’ as well. It hit him like a bolt of lightening. Without so much as a hand-held calculator, McKenzie unearthed the origin and mechanism of serious mental and emotional disorders. His revolutionary new treatment methods and three levels of prevention quickly followed.

In 1996 Dr. McKenzie wrote his first book, with Dr. Lance Wright, Delayed Posttraumatic Stress Disorders From Infancy:
The Two Trauma Mechanism -- a college textbook used in universities across the country and in other parts of the English speaking world.

After fourteen more years of research and study, he has made his treatment and prevention available to the general public in simple and understandable form in his new book: “Babies Need Mothers” How Mothers Can Prevent Mental Illness in their Children.

His early discovery was made in the beginning of an era of high-tech research, and the space-age technology quickly captured the imaginations of scientists and lay persons alike. Biological discoveries dominated newspaper headlines and lead stories on network TV.

While technology has left the world awestruck, the benefits are not impressive. There are reports of a twenty-fold increase in autism, a forty-fold increase in bipolar disorder, rampant ADHD, drug and alcohol dependence out of control, and school violence never before seen. This does not compute.

Dr McKenzie wonders, did the brightest minds, the costliest research, the mountains of peer-reviewed literature and the billions of research dollars fail to make the critical distinction between cause and effect? Could this possibly be?

The discovery Dr. McKenzie made 44 years ago, linking serious disorders to specific events in the first months and years of life – which he confirmed on the 6,000 in the Finnish database and the 2,700 in the Danish cohort on schizophrenia – is now revealed in his latest book in terms that even a child can understand.

Dr. McKenzie continues to dedicate his life to educating people worldwide about the simple origin, mechanism, treatment and prevention of serious mental disorders.
