  1. Wow, another fantastic, honest article about the state of the mental “health” profession held hostage by biopsychiatry by psychologist Richard Shulman. It seems that the more brave people speak the truth to power, the more people become more brave and also speak the truth to power.

    Such articles written by experts in the field exposing the life destroying disease model of biopsychiatry to push lethal drugs, ECT and other brain/body destruction give me hope for the future as more and more such experts speak the truth to power.

    This CT volunteer program of psychotherapy with no formal stigmas on a person’s permanent record is a great remedy to avoid the many harms of mainstream biopsychiatry.
