The Lancet publication’s authors intentionally misrepresent suicide’s associations because the “mental health” status quo has the blessings of the state to model “mental illness” primarily as constitutional or personal failure (biological illness or “maladaptive” behavior) instead of as a consequence of trauma. The latter would call too much attention to the state’s or the community’s contribution to others’ emotional/cognitive conditions. It’s easier, more profitable, and more personally/professionally gratifying to infantilize the suffering who, of course, ensure the continued value of the clinician. Any who vigorously disagree with the status quo can be conveniently censored as purveyors of misinformation. Thanks for the review, Dr. Gøtzsche.
