Thanks Slayer for the reminder that the label is an opinion.
Thank you Robert for this analysis.
I would add the drugs sexual effects on the brains D2 receptors has not been reported/studied. Numerous rat brain studies show haloperidol and clozapine stop male sexual behaviour.

There is no antipsychotic drug because there is no psychotic molecule, virus bacteria. This is a con game with acronyms to make it seem legitimate. When will the house of cards collapse? Pretty soon I think.
Thanks for responding Rachel. I would add that my parents are invested in the description of schizophrenia, as if it is wrong it means they have betrayed me (their child) for the years past, and they could not have done that could they? Who would betray their child? It is not possible….
Once labelled , you can not be unlabelled . I challenge you to find people who have had their mental illness diagnosis removed. Your/their illness may be in remission and at the present time, you/they may be “stable”.

What is important is functionality, how well you can function.
What is functional? If you don’t know, then that is half the problem. Magic pills are not going to educate anyone magically. Psychiatrists who complain of lack of insight (in their patient) while making their patients stupid are the the insane ones.
A psychiatric diagnosis is a blessing or a curse.

PETER “What if we’re still doing this when we’re 50?” (said in horror)
SAMIR “It could be nice to have that kind of job security.”
With severe Mental Illness you can’t get fired from your “job” as a patient, so you do have income security.
oldhead, Psychiatry can not be abolished, like the religious group of Christianity, Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism can not be abolished. People willingly worship psychiatry and this worship can not be stopped.
oldhead people want and need drugs. Drugs are the number one reason for psychiatry in my opinion. People need a legal way of getting drugs for themselves, or for forcing the drugs on others to control them. Only psychiatry can legitimize the consumption of drugs.

If you are looking for more HORROR, you can look at a medical paper from 1961 on targeting the deep brain.
While today the neurosurgeon / psychiatrist is looking at the reptilian brain in the human brain or the root core of the brain, where the emotions are thought to be, back in 1961 they were destroying/ stimulating the thinking part of the brain the frontal lobe.
I did not know when lobotomy was abandoned, but from Wikipedia “Doctors in the Soviet Union concluded that the procedure was “contrary to the principles of humanity” and “‘through lobotomy’ an insane person is changed into an idiot.” By the 1970s, numerous countries had banned the procedure as had several US states.”

The con game of naming drugs as “medicine” is evident in this report of Whitaker and Blumke.
Thank you for the work of accumulating all the evidence and putting it together.
Hopefully the science will not be overlooked by those paying the bills. Not getting what they are paying for.
Meds you write. The drugs are not medications. There is no measurable illness the drugs are affecting. Should the dose be 4mg or 100 mg? The decision is totally arbitrary. There is no science to back up the claim the drugs are medicine as there are no brain chemical (imbalance) tests. A comparison is the thickness of the rope binding the person like a 4 piece stranded rope or a 100 stranded rope or the different types of metal that can be used in handcuffs. And people willingly go along with this idea of drugs as medicine.
When is the stop date to the medicine? When is the stop day of the drug? Human behavior, a human’s choice to do/perform evil or good is not a medical problem.
As the scientists are not reporting the DBS failures, we have to list and publish them.

“who is helping people to understand that the drugs they take may be too many?”
Drugs? They are not drugs they are (magical) medications that can only do good because a doctor prescribed them.
Too many(much)? People can not take too much of the God they worship. Don’t you want to be more like a perfect God?
“shouldn’t she have figured out” What the FORK??? how do you figure something out without the thing that does the figuring?
“But if you don’t take the psychiatric drugs you will be-come mentally ill ” they say.The Paradox power of psychiatry , my icon of one hand drawing the other (M.C. Escher). The only person who can leave the equation is the “patient”. The physical drug addiction AND society belief in magical psychiatric drugs makes it extremely difficult.
The original “first they came for” by Martin Niemöller January 1946 does have the mentally ill named “Then they got rid of the sick, the so-called incurables.” http://marcuse.faculty.history.ucsb.edu/niem.htm
I am sorry your mother Gail Susan Harris only made it to the age of 46. With those in power assigning her death to natural causes, like https://www.madinamerica.com/2014/02/uk-mans-death-medication-side-effects-ruled-natural-causes/
The only difference between the sane and the insane is that the sane have the power to lock up the insane.

The “long term recovery rates for the schizophrenic patient” can be translated to “long term recovery rates for the Communist” why would a communist work for the authority that would jail , poison or kill him/her?
I am sorry for the misunderstanding . No I did not mean that people in distress are evil. I was looking at the end of your writing when you wrote
“those who commit mass shooting or any other hideous crime, do suffer from a sick mind. ”
The ability to leave a relationship or location would relieve the distress in many people. Most are bound by lack of money/income.
I do not like the idea or term “sick mind” as it implies a medical problem that a doctor might attempt a remedy.
People can’t say the word “evil”, can’t say people chose to be evil, they have to be “sick”.
It can’t be a choice to do Evil, that’s not possible. Everyone is good!
It is a placebo device. As a placebo device , I think it is better than the psychiatric drugs that do damage to the brain.
The amount of voltage/current electricity used in these devices can not reach the brain. https://www.sciencemag.org/news/2016/04/cadaver-study-casts-doubts-how-zapping-brain-may-boost-mood-relieve-pain
If you do have a high enough voltage/current to reach the brain, it becomes painful and you have to use anesthesia.
It is all quackery to say people and children’s choices are not their choices.
There are people who defend the religion (that isn’t a religion. HOW DARE YOU SAY IT IS A RELIGION) of the worship of the holy molecules of science that can only do good things to people.
When in fact the molecules, the drugs can hurt people as well as “help” people.
“Cooper … there’s a stigma for people actually seeking medical help for something that could save their life.”
This person can not conceive that the psychiatric drugs ( renamed medications) could END and damage peoples lives.

You wrote “I think the majority of “mental health” workers may actually suffer from doublethink”
No they do NOT suffer from it, they make a living from the trick. They are fully functional. No one is going to stop them. They pay their bills with the paycheck they receive.
A person is either nonfunctional or functional , there is no mental illness.
If some one is too anxious , yes you can give them drugs to make them function.
Stopping the drugs, who want to do that? its medicine! Cant stop giving medicine to a patient.
Just saw an article on misdiagnosed Parkinson’s. Maybe you have something else? what does your brain scan look like? https://www.ctvnews.ca/health/new-clinic-treats-patients-with-reversible-condition-often-mistaken-for-dementia-1.4525349
I googled teeth and mental illness and found bacteria linked to it https://www.colgate.com/en-us/oral-health/life-stages/adult-oral-care/ada-09-throat-and-mouth-bacteria-linked-to-schizophrenia
“lactic acid bacteria was at least 400 times more abundant in schizophrenic patients than control subjects”
They don’t say if the patients were drugged/medicated BEFORE the change in bacteria.
Dry mouth and effects of the drugs/medications may be causing the physical differences and then the bacteria etc is not a clue to the causes of “mental illness”.
“all he was doing was being naked, howling at the moon” If someone wants to be naked, and clearly non violent, and howl at the moon, what’s really the problem?
I bet people who scream and get naked want to do it around people to get a reaction from them, otherwise they should have gone away from civilization first.

I am happy to support this website for quality articles like this one. Thanks!!!!
As there is no such thing as a psychotic molecule , bacteria or virus, anyone with common sense knows an Anti-psychotic is a fictional medicine.
Imagine a (illegal ) drug dealer that wanted to reduce their (drug addicted) clients use of drugs. Not gonna happen. What is the drug dealers incentive? Who is the drug dealer working for?
Peace, there must be peace at all costs.
The number one reason for psychiatry is for people to get drugs. The people can not call them drugs. They can not be taking or forcing others to consume drugs, they must be taking medicine. The necessity of psychiatry is to rename drugs as medicine. https://www.smithsonianmag.com/history/during-prohibition-your-doctor-could-write-you-prescription-booze-180947940/
With today’s technology we could define someone with a physical brain defect found in a MRI as a patient due to the scientific evidence. The brain damage has to be evident BEFORE psychiatry intervened with its treatments.
As I am sure you know, psychiatry can predict a horrible future and then makes the horror come true.
I like the cartoon. Szasz said there is a time to laugh at the powerful,“When a person can no longer laugh at himself, it is time for others to laugh at him..” and John Lennon also advocated for nonviolence, as once they have you (visibly) angry , they know how to handle you.
Jailing someone and calling the jail a hospital will also make people crazy.
From the article “Amit’s belief that we were conspiring against him could be described as a delusion. It might also be described as an understandable response to what was happening to him.”
Guy in the article is selling a book. Getting paid to look after and write about the mentally ill. ehn.
Regarding the electricity overnight on children’s brains.
The electricity is DC or direct current so does not cause a seizure. At best , the treatment is an active placebo.
At worst, chemical reactions will occur in the blood and potentially poison the child. To separate hydrogen and oxygen H2O in water you can apply a DC voltage to water that has conductors. At the positive and negative contact points gas and chemical reactions will take place.
The odds of electricity reaching the brain is very unlikely, as proven by a cadaver study of DC electrical stimulation. Medical article https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/29396478
For DC to work they have to use higher voltages/power, which then makes it too painful to use on conscious people.
Layman article. “Buzsáki, who still hopes to use such techniques to enhance memory, is more restrained than some critics. The tDCS field is “a sea of bullshit and bad science” https://www.sciencemag.org/news/2016/04/cadaver-study-casts-doubts-how-zapping-brain-may-boost-mood-relieve-pain
Congratulations on your work to follow where the money goes .
I hope you are aware of the trap seriously mentally ill persons are in. If they are not taking psychiatric medications then they are not following medical advice and can be forcefully medicated, or if they are not taking medication it means they are well and will no longer receive Government money to have food and shelter.
I think it is hilarious that those who believe in the religion of psychiatry criticize the legitimacy of another religion.
“The only way out was to tell the psychiatrists that they were correct. I am insane but getting better.” Rosenhan experiment.
Psychiatrist predict a bad future then make the bad future happen by drugging their patient. Drug withdrawal is judged as the mental illness returning and the necessity for drug resumption.
They accuse the schizophrenic “Positive symptoms of schizophrenia may be related to distortions in time perception.” When it is they themselves who have a distorted perception of time. The future has not happened yet and there is nothing to fear, yet they fear the future and must medicate the present moment to prevent the “bad”.
The “medicines” one ingests do not have the ability to distinguish between “good” sane thought and “bad” insane thought and attack ONLY the “bad” thoughts. The person decides what is rational or not.
You can not fix stupid.
“You cannot tell me that I do not have a physical illness” double negatives? Converts to “you can tell me i do have a physical illness”
This is a bizarre statement when the illness is called mental illness, and a whole different set of rules are applied to mental illness.
In physical illness the patient can leave against medical advice AMA.
People do have the potential to make wrong or bad decisions ( or the right one) , if they do not have the choice they do not have their freedom.
Yes indeed the medication or drugs can inhibit cognition, keeping the patient in a trap of lack of insight into their problem(s). Indeed the doctor/psychiatrist can enjoy their position of power too much.

The religion of magical pills is in power. This era started with the first antibiotic (penicillin) and the birth control pill.

You wrote “my poor parents decades ago that I could “relapse” at any given moment”.
This is an exploitation of fear ( of the future) in the parents, that psychiatry is happy to use. Your child is sick and must be helped. A parents love and need to keep the child safe. How does the child escape the parents and the psychiatrists fear of the future?
The psychiatrist can play the hero by drugging the patient so they can not perform any action, good or bad.
You causing any trouble?
“People assume I, and others, can’t handle these emotions. This is projection indeed.” you wrote.
Yes they can call the anger “psychotic” instead of that the person is angry. With the person suitably diagnosed, antipsychotics can be medically administered.
“people can become afraid to leave their home” you wrote. I wonder about this.
Go back in time and how many homes had heating , running water to drink and a toilet to use? Before modern times you had to go out to chop wood for the fire or get coal for the furnace. You had to go outside to the well to get drinking water. You had to go outside to use the outhouse.

“…the cause of major psychiatric disorders, and how, in fact, they were finding instead that the drugs, over time, induce the very chemical abnormalities hypothesized to cause the disorders in the first place. ”

and Anhedonia: The inability to experience pleasure from activities usually found enjoyable.
The psychiatric medicines given to the mentally ill known as antipsychotics disable the dopamine and serotonin receptors in the brain.

The drugs are not medications.
This is what the psychiatric profession is hinged on. If there are no psychiatric medications ( there are not) , then they are not doctors.
So the drugs have to BE medications or they are out of a profession.

Sleep ah? You think it is a pleasant sleep? You obviously have not been forced to consume the drug, or brainwashed to consume the drug. And it is not sleep.
The diagnoses might be a description of behaviour like” too fast” or “too slow”, but the trouble with giving such a description-diagnosis to a child or anyone under the age of 18, is that the diagnosis is self fulfilling.
The doctor says I have a low attention span due to a disease? That’s a great excuse for not taking responsibility for my actions, for not trying to get better. I got a disease! My actions and inaction are a result of a disease. The doctor says so!
This is the TRUE danger of psychiatric diagnosis, the nocebo effect.

This paper discusses and analyses three articles appearing in a 1942 issue of the
American Journal of Psychiatry.
“By about 1960, widespread consumption had begun to make amphetamine’s negative health consequences more evident. Amphetamine psychosis had already been observed in the 1930s among long-term narcoleptic users of the drug, and individual case reports mounted during the 1940s and early 1950s.41 Initially, psychotic episodes were attributed to latent schizophrenia “unmasked” by the drug or to some other preexisting psychiatric pathology in the user.42 In Philip Connell’s definitive 1958 study of 40 cases, however, the British psychiatrist persuasively showed that amphetamine psychosis could happen to anyone, and eventually would, given enough of the drug” https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2377281/

If you are being given shit in your life (dung in the story), maybe it is Jesus trying to fertilize you so you produce something. (joke)
Psychiatry does the opposite of dung-fertilizer for a plant, it poisons people while calling it medicine, and those around the mental patient for some reason still believe the confidence trick, urge their loved one to take the medicine.
YOU TAKE THE MEDICINE!
No, the facts, the information, the science comes from the top down. A PBS show on breast cancer said everyone was in favour for radical mastectomy to cure cancer. The doctor who proposed lumpectomy is just as good, was derided by his fellow brainwashed doctors. Only when the patients heard of a scientific trial, and got the science to prove the survival rates are the same for both radical mastectomy and lumpectomy did things change.
I saw a study of people given a placebo, explicitly told they are taking a placebo and the placebo effect still worked on a majority of the subjects. So you don’t even need the “active” placebo (some kind of noticeable physical effect) to get a response.
“why do you suppose mainstream religions have embraced psychiatry”
It is about where the drugs are coming from.
because the elite in the church still sin, still suffer from “depression” and need someone to turn to for excuses and the solution of legal drugs coming from read doctors, not drug dealers.
and also the children of the elite have problems , so they need psychiatry to drug(called medicine) the children.
Living in an urban area with green spaces has a long-lasting positive impact on people’s mental well-being, a study has suggested.
UK researchers found moving to a green space had a sustained positive effect, unlike pay rises or promotions, which only provided a short-term boost.
The authors said the results indicated that access to good quality urban parks was beneficial to public health.
The findings appear in the journal Environmental Science and Technology.
Co-author Mathew White, from the European Centre for Environment and Human Health at the University of Exeter, UK, explained the study built on the findings of a study that showed people living in greener urban areas were displaying fewer signs of depression or anxiety.
great find! thanks for the link
A bartender can be charged for giving too much alcohol .
“Bartenders who serve intoxicated patrons may be at risk for legal and civil charges as a result of these actions. Many states have enacted legislation to allow for prosecution and civil suits of commercial establishments that serve alcohol to visibly intoxicated individuals or to minors.”
And the doctor was on a mind altering substance like alcohol.
Heads I win, tails you lose. Win- Win for psychiatry
With no science to measure good thoughts to bad thoughts from being chemically altered it still is a win-win position for psychiatry.
If the patient does well after given-forced medicines, psychiatry helped.
If the patient does poorly after given-forced medication, psychiatry says we told you he/she was ill. We are trying to help.
Depression used to be a sin, as in a choice people make. If you can not sin ( you do not have the DNA that they are looking for) you are not a human being. The sin is ingratitude to not appreciate and enjoy the gifts that God has given us, like the sight, sound, smell of things.
The fish, the client wants to stay on the hook of drug addiction. Right. Not. There are no brain chemical imbalances. The legal drugs are just drugs, not medicine.
The psychiatrist can switch up the drugs, for the patient. If the patient goes nuts from the change, it is a win for psychiatry (Patient back in psychiatry’s hospital-jail or worse). If the patient adjusts to the new drugs (with an illusion of choice or freewill) it is a win for psychiatry as they kept their “patient”.
Remember the hero needs to be a hero by issuing helpful medications to a sick patient.
You are sick aren’t you?
“I do not ever believe it shrunk my brain”
The drugs do shrink the brain, wither you believe it or don’t believe it.
What is psychosis? Just another made up word. No measurable chemical , blood test, Xray, MRI or whatever.
If there is no psychosis then they can’t push there fictional cure, the anti-psychosis drugs, that they call medicine.
If they can’t administer medicine, are they doctors?
The Simpsons cartoon made fun of the phenomenon of teenagers being depressed. Leaving childhood has its pros and cons. “Making teenagers depressed is like shooting fish in a barrel” 0:27 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cELOaM-wRUY
The say psychiatry went too far with naming bereavement a mental disorder, maybe teenage angst is also not a mental disorder?
The problem will solve itself when the children of today grow up and don’t/can’t/won’t have children or will not have a profession that earns income to pay for their children.
Makes you ask “Who watches the watchers?” Was the authority the one with the mental illness (obsession with medically assisted death) , not the “patient”?

I don’t know how religion is doing where you live, but the churches that were full in the 1940’s are now empty. People used to pray to God before the holy molecules of science started working , like molecules of penicillin.

first the general public does not want psychiatry banned
second organized religion uses psychiatry for the sin of sloth, known today as depression, so they don’t want it gone
third psychiatry is part of the law, the accused must be sane to go to court. too obvious,too much proof of a killing from anger and the person is automatically “insane”
How does it get banned?
” no more psychiatry” you have to be realistic and recognize some people like and want psychiatry. People want to play patient and doctor.
To ban psychiatry would be like to ban a religion.You can’t do it.
To clarify, a drug only becomes a medicine when it is prescribed by a (mortal) doctor. You the doctor are preforming the magical transformation of drug to medicine. You must bear the responsibility, if you can not, find another profession.
What responsibility you ask? The actions of your patient that they take while under the influence of mind altering drugs, like a person who voluntarily drinks alcohol and drives home. Did he drink too much?
So the default is obvious , drug your patient so much that they can take NO action, and then call the lack of action a successful treatment.
As a critic of psychiatry I have to write the drugs are not medications. It is self fulfilling to write “Who decides?” when it has already been decided the drugs are medicines by the authority.
The doctors are issuing legal drugs not medicines, as there is no physical disease in the patient for the drug-chemical to affect.
The prescribing doctor does not go through physical withdrawal, or the ups and downs as the drugs are absorbed into the patients body. There is no WE in the legal drug dealing.
“He recently asked me if I thought he could ever stop — I said I didn’t know, but certainly we could work on it.”
“we’d keep on making these decisions together”
The drug dealer does not want to see pain in their client so will continue to prescribe drugs.
“My biggest fear is that people who need the drugs will stop taking them.” Dr. Andreasen
old blog on same problem
Then you got the catch 22. If you are looking for help, it means you don’t need help (to those in authority).
“Help” is locking the patient up so they can not hurt themselves.

with facebook, who is going to use their real name?
I am sorry for your loss. Sorry that the cause of death report was simply ‘respiratory failure’.
Another aspect is military deaths on psych drugs. In the U.S., one suicide (successfully) completed a day, with many on the psychiatric medicines. They estimate 22 or 20 suicide attempts a day. Do they blame the drug, the access to the drug, the drugs effects on cognition that predisposes someone to perform more foolish actions? Suicide is attributed to mental illness, not the drug. And those that who accidentally take an overdose, is it suicide or an overdose? What is written on the death certificate?
Canada “Suicide toll reveals how system failed Canada’s soldiers and veterans”
I ask the doctors who read this website to consider writing the paper.
Someone could write a book on the problem of falsifying the death certificates, or at least document it, and put it in the medical literature so it can be cited as a “real” problem.
Doctors and scientists that believe the lie that the drugs are medicines usually write” natural causes” to the death of psych patients, or like in this article “died from a hereditary heart condition”. They falsify the science and still claim it is science . The Nazi’s did something similar.
“The relatives then received condolence letters, falsified death certificates signed by physicians, and urns containing ashes.”
Death From Meds’ Side Effects Ruled “Natural Causes”
and the 25 twenty five earlier death rate of the mentally ill , they do attribute it to “cardiovascular, respiratory
and infectious diseases, diabetes and hypertension” https://www.who.int/mental_health/management/info_sheet.pdf.
If they are faking the cause of death, any attempts to fix the problem will obviously not work. And they will not be caught until another fifty years of evidence builds up to prove they are lying.
