  • Thank you for sharing your experience, May-May. Most of my so called “psychotic” experiences were also of a spiritual nature. And I hate to tell you, but you should likely expect a “psychotic” experience, if you wean from the antipsychotics. Because withdrawing from that class of drugs can result in a “drug withdrawal induced manic psychosis.”

    I’ve been psych drug free since 2009, and my “drug withdrawal induced manic psychosis” culminated in a born-again type story, where I supposedly became “of the bride” of Christ. So it was – albeit a bizarre and staggeringly serendipitous experience – not bothersome to me, as a Christian.

    A fair warning, I had two of the “drug withdrawal induced super sensitivity manic psychoses,” and they both lasted for about three months. Likely, briefly going back on the antipsychotic, would have shortened those experiences. But I didn’t have any way of knowing that back in 2006 and 2009. And for me, they were a rather interesting experience, since they functioned as an awakening to the story of my dreams.

    I will also mention, that the antipsychotics (and antidepressants) themselves can also create “psychosis,” via anticholinergic toxidrome. The neuroleptics/antipsychotics can also create the negative symptoms of ‘schizophrenia,’ via neuroleptic induced deficit syndrome.

    I do recommend a very slow taper. My psychiatrist weaned me off the psych drugs over a period of about three years, but it is my understanding that the tapering strips may work well. God bless you on your healing journey. And isn’t it nice that patients, and former patients, have a place where we can share our hard earned wisdom?

  • “in daily traditional practice, the experiences of hearing voices are often silenced, which can increase ignorance and fear, even among the hearers themselves, about them.”

    Indeed, in “traditional practice,” the psychiatrists tell you to ignore the “voices.” Even if they are staggeringly relevant to the crimes one is dealing with, in their real life. In my case, my antipsychotic and antidepressant / anticholinergic toxidrome induced “voices” were incessantly bragging about the rape of my very young child. And the medical evidence of that crime was eventually handed over.

    “The Voice Hearers groups create spaces where its participants have their experiences and their knowledge about them validated, they assume a protagonist role in their own care, and there is a horizontal relationship with the moderating professionals.”

    Having a “horizontal” / mutually respectful relationship – or as in most sales jobs – a relationship where the person being sold a product should be treated with great esteem. That would be an infinitely more appropriate manner for the big Pharma salespersons to behave.

    But since the “mental health” big Pharma salespeople can force innocent others to take their neurotoxins. Most “mental health professionals” treat their clients as less than zero. Both forced and coerced treatment are anti-free market and un-American, IMHO.

    “By sharing experiential knowledge, or rather than technical knowledge only, participants experienced a strategy of co-construction of new knowledge about the experience of hearing voices.”

    Well, since the psychiatrists’ “technical knowledge” is based upon scientific fraud and big Pharma corruption – their entire “bible” was debunked as “invalid” in 2013. Most definitely, utilizing psychiatric “technical knowledge only” has proven to be a recipe for disaster for all Western nations.

    Forced and coerced “treatment” should be made illegal world wide. But instead, big Pharma is now trying to force “vaccinate” the entire planet.

    I agree with a commenter on Del Bigtree’s website, “Americans have lost total control of their own governmental and health agencies. Talk about pure evil………” Any kind of forced or coerced drugging is pure evil.

    https://thehighwire.com/videos/episode-268-w-h-o-is-in-charge/

    What the “mental health” system does – and what the entire planet is now dealing with – is called gas lighting, which is “mental abuse,” not medical care.

    But I will say, in my case, rather than “ignoring” the “voices,” getting off the drugs that created the “voices.” And logically explaining to the “drug withdrawal induced super sensitivity manic psychosis” induced “voices,” that I couldn’t function with them all talking, did work for me.

    My healing “voices” agreed to only speak, when all within the theoretical “collective unconscious” agreed that I needed to be forewarned of a danger – and/or to basically function as my common sense. This allowed me to get rid of basically all the “voices,” except maybe the “Holy Spirit voice.”

    But I’m fine with having a personal relationship with God, especially since my childhood religion has “partnered with” the big Pharma forcing, systemic child abuse covering up, “mental health” workers.

    “That’s me in the spotlight losing my religion.”

    But since that approach worked for me, although I admit it was not easy. It may be worth a try for others. Irregardless, we do need to get our “mental health professionals” out of the gas lighting business, since that’s mental abuse, not “mental health care.”

  • “We are under the misapprehension that we’re born bad, or in the official words of the Church of England, innately depraved, and that is simply not true.”

    “Our social nature is such that we tend to meet the expectations of our elders. Whenever this reversal took place and our elders stopped expecting us to be social and expected us to be anti-social, just to put it in gross terms, that’s when the real fall took place. And we’re paying for it dearly.”

    Most definitely, many of the mainstream religions have led us astray, on many of their so called “beliefs.” Like, for example, Jesus’ birthday was not December 25th, if Jesus even existed at all. Which I do happen to believe, but to each his own.

    “. . . I don’t mean to be disrespectful to our experts. They may be able to distinguish a measle from a mump, which is very useful if you have one or the other. But that doesn’t, for one minute, give them deep knowledge of correct human behavior.”

    And, most definitely, the so called “mental health” industry – who worship from their scientifically “invalid” DSM “bible” – have no “deep knowledge of correct human behavior.” Since everything they believe in is a lie, and too many of them cover up child abuse, despite this being illegal behavior.

    “. . . Today normal is adversarial.” Sadly, that is the case – upside down and backwards, in my humble opinion.

    “How could we have gotten to this place where when the baby’s screaming we deny our natural innate tendencies to respond and pick it up?” I heard about that awful approach to parenting, but didn’t personally subscribe to it. But those adversarial, force drugging, “experts” do want to neurotoxic poison the mommies, whose desire is to properly raise our children. According to my medical records, because they have delusions that being an active mommy is merely “unemployed.”

    “Whatever children are doing — is learning. They’re learning like little sponges, all the time. I agree, and saw just doing fun things with my children – like going to museums or on vacations – helped my children learn about new and interesting things.

    And personally, I subscribed to the “try to never say no” philosophy, and I tried to logically explain why one should not do something, if one of my children did something inappropriate. But I did get reprimanded by a teacher once, since as an artist, I did not teach my children that they were required to color within the lines of a coloring book.

    “There’s no way you can make a child learn better than he would if he or she wants to.” True, make learning fun.

    “We can only get our feeling of worth about ourselves and everything else from our authority figures.”

    I don’t know that I totally agree with that, since there is a point when one realizes too many of the so called “authority figures” believe in “bullshit,” like the “mental health” “authorities.”

    “We don’t need to empower children to trust their nature. The tendency to trust is there. We simply need to allow them to do so.” Yes, treat them like they’re little curious people worthy of respect, since that is what they are.

  • “Because researchers believe it is unethical to conduct a randomized, controlled trial of antidepressant use in pregnancy,….”

    Well, if that is “unethical,” why isn’t it considered “unethical” to hand out the anticholinergic drugs (including the antidepressants and antipsychotics), when all doctors are taught in med school that those drug classes can create “psychosis,” via anticholinergic toxidrome?

    “We suggest that the observed associations may be attributable to the severity of the underlying maternal disorders rather than intrauterine effects of the medication.”

    Blame the patient, anyone? Isn’t that “unethical”?

    “they acknowledge that the risks of antidepressant use should be explained to those who are pregnant or plan to become pregnant so that they can make an informed decision in collaboration with their clinician.”

    So when a doctor, instead, lies to a woman of child-bearing age, and claims an antidepressant is a “safe … med.” Isn’t that also “unethical”?

    “no matter what the result, whether they find an effect or not, researchers in this field always claim that it supports their theory.”

    Isn’t that also “unethical”?

    “what is the point of conducting studies like these if researchers are going to claim that their theory is true no matter what result they find?”

    There is no point in conducting studies like these, and Dr. Thomas Insel said US funding of research into the “invalid” DSM disorders was going to end in 2013. So my question is, when will the US actually stop funding the “bullshit” that is the DSM based psy-disciplines?

  • Most definitely, bthate, The antipsychotics and antidepressants are both anticholinergic drugs. And all doctors are taught in med school that combining the anticholinergic drugs can create “psychosis,” via anticholinergic toxidrome.

    So we are looking at staggering amounts of intentional malpractice, that the psychiatric and psychological industries have participated in.

  • “The meds make it nearly impossible to quit smoking.” Yes, I do believe it is true that prescribing the “safe smoking cessation meds” makes “it nearly impossible to quit smoking.”

    My experience was that the psych drugs force one to increase their smoking. Not to mention, they create the psychiatric “symptoms” of their “invalid” DSM disorders.

    I hope and pray, Peter Gøtzsche, that we may some day end psychiatry’s – and the mainstream medical industries’ – reign of terror.

  • “Blame the patient” is a systemic problem within medicine. I literally had a PCP, who I’d gone in to discuss my young child gaining a lot of weight – just after that PCP had put me on mind altering psych drugs, albeit under the disingenuous guise of “safe meds” – I wanted to know why my child had gained so much weight. That PCP actually said to me that she would “blame me, if I didn’t have one thin child and one overweight child.”

    But I absolutely agree, this is an even bigger problem with the psychiatrists. In part, because they have even made up a word to describe this so called “lack of insight,” agnosia.

    In hindsight, I’m quite certain my young child’s weight problem was due to the fact that disingenuously putting a mother on antidepressants and opioids, results in that mother being mentally distanced from her children. And over eating was my youngest child’s reaction to having her loving mother stolen from her, via the mind altering psych drugs.

    And I will say, my former psychiatrist lacked a staggering amount of insight about me. Once my medical records were finally handed over, I realized my psychiatrist had never listened to anything I had to say. And he had gotten all of his misinformation about me from a child abuse covering up psychologist, her child abusing pastor, and that pastor’s pedophile “soul mates.”

    In the end, I had to leave that psychiatrist, since his solution – in regards to his misinformation problem – was to declare my entire life to be “a credible fictional story.” And he had delusions that the best way to help a healing child abuse survivor, was to neurotoxic poison him. Talk about a doctor who was “lacking insight.”

  • Isn’t the primary goal of psychiatry and psychology destroying “the whole group of people with psychiatric” categorizations?

    It most certainly was in Nazi Germany, and in bolshevik led Russia.

    And since the globalist banksters are repeating the worst of history, with their Ponzi scheme of a Federal Reserve system, in their attempts to financially destroy America.

    And the scientific fraud based psychiatric and psychological industries have historically always functioned as their “omni-potent moral busy bodies.”

    It does strike me, that even in America today, the primary goal of the psychiatric and psychological industries is destroying “the whole group of people with psychiatric categorizations.”

  • “Forensic psychiatry is exempted from the idea ‘First, do no harm’ linked to the original Hippocratic oath. If the forensic psychiatrist is representing another party, there is no doctor-patient relationship.”

    Wouldn’t this then mean all “mental health” workers are exempted from the idea of “First, do no harm,” if they are “representing another party?” For example, since the ELCA religion is “partners” with the “mental health” workers, and the “mental health” workers function as the child abuse and rape covering up arm of the ELCA, by DSM design.

    https://www.psychologytoday.com/us/blog/your-child-does-not-have-bipolar-disorder/201402/dsm-5-and-child-neglect-and-abuse-1

    Wouldn’t this then imply there is “no doctor-patient relationship,” thus make all “mental health care,” that is recommended by ELCA pastors, health insurance fraud?

    “Even so, I believe ethics demands that they do no gratuitous harm. Misdiagnosing a patient falls into that category in my view.” Yet every American doctor, including the psychiatrists, is taught in med school, that both the antidepressants and antipsychotics can create “psychosis,” via anticholinergic toxidrome.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Toxidrome

    And don’t get me started on the iatrogenic bipolar epidemic. Robert Whitaker beautifully and scientifically explained that iatrogenic epidemic in his “Anatomy of an Epidemic.”

    “I would even stay away from mental health apps on your cell phone.” Good advise.

    “No friends or family members should talk to your psychiatrist [or psychologist]. These secondary actors can be a source of damaging information that will be transcribed into your record.”

    Yes, like one’s mother confessing that a brief bad reaction to Stelazine – in a beloved grandmother – being turned into a psychological lie, that my grandmother was “psychotic.” I do, however, have a subsequent medical confession by my grandmother’s former PCP, who is still my mother’s PCP, that my grandmother “was not psychotic.”

    Full disclosure: I am a disgruntled, yet reasonably happy, artist and independent psychopharmacological researcher. Who found the medical proof that the antipsychotics can create – not just “psychosis” – via anticholinergic toxidrome. But also the negative symptoms of “schizophrenia,” via neuroleptic induced deficit syndrome.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Neuroleptic-induced_deficit_syndrome

    “This was not forensic psychiatry’s finest hour.” I definitely agree, now that the psychological and psychiatric industries’ systemic child abuse covering up crimes have now resulted in the bishops of my former religion becoming systemic child abuse cover uppers too. This is not psychiatry’s, nor psychology’s, “finest hour.”

    “Is the system safe? Is it effective? Is it practical? And especially, is it ethical?” I think the answer to all your above questions is NO. Thank you for your well research and important blog, Bart.

  • Thank you for so eloquently describing the satanic modus operandi of Western civilization’s scientific fraud based “mental health” industries, Tamara. My experience was quite similar to yours. Your “psychotic” reaction to the antipsychotics is actually called anticholinergic toxidrome – and a toxidrome is a medically known way to poison a person.

    And since intentionally poisoning people is a form of attempted murder – if any of us lived in a just and/or decent society – most psychiatrists, and many mainstream doctors, would all belong in jail, for intentionally poisoning millions of people, for profit.

  • “We have developed an entire lexicon of weasel words and magical thinking that we pass between generations and disciplines.” Great description of the DSM “bible,” and the insane belief system of those who bill utilizing it.

    “It would be hard to come up with an exhaustive list of lies we tell ourselves in psychiatric practice.” Indeed, I’ve never met more incessant liars, than “mental health” workers.

    “One author has gone so far as to call the language psychiatry uses a ‘human rights violation’ due to its tendency to alienate the ‘mentally ill’ from the rest of the population and the consequences faced by service users as a result.”

    Well, this most certainly is the goal of the child abuse and rape covering up psychological profession.

    https://www.indybay.org/newsitems/2019/01/23/18820633.php?fbclid=IwAR2-cgZPcEvbz7yFqMuUwneIuaqGleGiOzackY4N2sPeVXolwmEga5iKxdo

    I know my child abuse covering up psychologist literally told me to “quit all your activities and concentrate on the meds.” Good thing I ignored that insanely stupid advise.

    But what’s sad is that, since my former religion has “partnered” with the child abuse covering up psychological and psychiatric industries, my entire family had to leave that systemic child abuse covering up religion – which is a form of alienating people. Not that I want to be a member of a child abusing and child abuse covering up religion anyway, but that religion did defraud my family out of millions, since they pretend to be a Christian religion.

    https://books.google.com/books?id=xI01AlxH1uAC&printsec=frontcover&source=gbs_ge_summary_r&cad=0#v=onepage&q&f=false

    “Sociologists have chronicled the failing of American Psychiatry, with researchers pointing to the lower life expectancy and life trajectories of people who experience psychosis as exemplary of a discipline that cannot help the people it claims to.”

    It’s worse than that, given the fact that both the antidepressants and antipsychotics can create “psychosis,” via anticholinergic toxidrome.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Toxidrome

    “Research has shown that stigmatizing language in a person’s medical record negatively impacts patient care.”

    Very true, and the mere mention of a DSM stigmatization in one’s medical records precludes people from even being able to purchase health insurance.

    “This stigmatizing language can lead to implicit bias, a situation in which the service provider makes judgments and decisions about a service user based on stereotypes rather than the actual lived experience of the service user.”

    Indeed, in the end, my psychiatrist – when confronted with all the misinformation in his medical records, gotten largely from the child abuse covering up psychologist and her pedophile friends, instead of from me – literally declared my entire life to be a “credible fictional story.”

    “The language of ‘no plans or intent’ excludes this person from receiving psychiatric services intended to assist suicidal people.”

    I didn’t find that confessing to not being suicidal prevented “mental health” workers from coercing and forcing neurotoxins on me, unfortunately.

    “Decades of damage requires time to repair, not to mention the buy-in of all parties.”

    The problem is the child abuse covering up “mental health” industry and religions don’t want to end their multibillion dollar, primarily child abuse covering up, “partnership.”

  • “A recent report by eMarketer noted that consumer response is highest when messages are delivered from social media influencers compared to brand-owned channels;”

    A sign that fierce Pharma’s reputation is circling the toilet, maybe?

    “Some even go so far as to say that the pharmaceutical industry is ‘killing for profit'”

    When it comes to psychiatry’s neurotoxic and anticholinergic toxidrome poisonings, indeed that is the case.

    “Although this type of influence is frustrating to health care professionals,” yes, I’ve noticed the medical community is getting frustrated by the fact that we can now all research medicine. And sometimes the “patients” “know more than the doctors.”

  • “might researchers for this twin study have WANTED to say parenting doesn’t matter? So as to minimize family leave and maximize female labor hours?”

    I think you are right, and I know this has been a goal of American psychiatry for decades. Since one of my psychiatrists didn’t even bother to ask me what I did; she must have illegally nosed into my private income statement or something, since she called me “unemployed” in her medical records.

    In reality, I was a stay at home mom, very active volunteer, as well as an artist working on my portfolio, in the hopes of future profits.

    But, if you watch this video, Aaron Russo explains this is the stated goal of the “elite.”

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6rWeRL_0aEs

    He speaks about this topic @ 5:25.

    “We have a democracy,” actually America is a democratic republic, not a democracy. Or at least it’s not supposed to be a “democracy,” according to the Constitution.

    “but if corporations can infiltrate academia and distort academic science and economics and everything else just right, they can run the show like dictators.”

    And that’s pretty much what’s going on.

    As to the nature vs. nurture debate, it seems the truth is likely some combination of nature and nurture – not one or the other. I do believe there may be a genetic component to IQ, given my father and son both graduated from university Phi Beta Kappa (within the top 10%, within the top 10% of universities).

    But I do know quickly getting my child away from satanic child molesters, and eventually leaving my systemic child abuse covering up former religion – some within whom have freely confessed to being “partners” with the scientific fraud based, systemic child abuse covering up, “mental health professionals.”

    I guess I say, thank you Peter, for consistency speaking truth regarding the scientific fraud of the unrepentant, systemic, child abuse and rape covering up, “mental health system.”

  • You’re most definitely not alone, Jenifer. But I am very sorry your childhood was filled with trauma. The “mental health professionals” cannot bill to help child abuse survivors, so they misdiagnose them with the billable disorders instead.

    https://www.psychologytoday.com/us/blog/your-child-does-not-have-bipolar-disorder/201402/dsm-5-and-child-neglect-and-abuse-1

    The “mental health professions” have been child abuse and rape cover uppers, since the days of … at least Freud.

    https://www.indybay.org/newsitems/2019/01/23/18820633.php?fbclid=IwAR2-cgZPcEvbz7yFqMuUwneIuaqGleGiOzackY4N2sPeVXolwmEga5iKxdo

    And today, “the prevalence of childhood trauma exposure within borderline personality disorder patients has been evidenced to be as high as 92% (Yen et al., 2002). Within individuals diagnosed with psychotic or affective disorders, it reaches 82% (Larsson et al., 2012).”

    https://www.madinamerica.com/2016/04/heal-for-life/

    Denying and covering up child abuse is a systemic problem, or the intended purpose, of the “mental health professions.” Me, I’m the mother of a child abuse survivor, who was attacked by “mental health professionals,” prior to me even mentally comprehending that my child had been sexually assaulted.

    Thankfully, I got my child away from the abusers pretty quickly, and scared a school that had a pedophile on their school board, into shutting down forever … once the medical evidence of the abuse was finally handed over to me.

    But I do have a heart for child abuse survivors. It took my child many years to recover, but he is doing well now. My prayers that you, too, heal … and you break the cycle of abuse. You must be a very strong person to have lived through all you did. And kudos on getting off the psych drugs. As one also stigmatized as “bipolar,” I know how hard it is to heal from psychiatric anticholinergic toxidrome poisonings (that’s basically the “gold standard treatment recommendations” for those stigmatized as “bipolar.”)

  • Fiachra,

    I know you already know that the “schizophrenia” treatments can create both the negative and positive symptoms of “schizophrenia,” via neuroleptic induced deficit syndrome, and anticholinergic toxidrome. So it’s no wonder that being weaned off the psych drugs was beneficial for you, and all.

    And I agree with you that “people that hear voices can often develop tactics to quieten them, or they can alternatively learn to live with their voices.” In my case, what was wrongly called, in my medical records – a “Holy Spirit voice” – was actually just a dream query.

    But I personally have no problem with the Holy Spirit and God being in charge of – as opposed to the dumb men and women, particularly the omnipotent moral busy bodies of the Holy Spirit blaspheming “mental health professions” – judging all.

    What’s sad is America, too, is controlled by big Pharma’s lies, propaganda, and greed. So we too, have a “terrible Mental Health problem.” For goodness sakes, the APA’s DSM “bible” was debunked as scientific fraud back in 2013.

    http://psychrights.org/2013/130429NIMHTransformingDiagnosis.htm

    Yet those industries that bill by it / worship from the DSM “bible,” have still not acknowledged this reality, almost a decade later.

  • “Police [and schools] are employing [scientific fraud based, DSM “bible” believing] social workers with greater frequency. Other social agencies, especially public welfare, are picking up on many people who had previously been dealt with by “mental health” services – most not requiring the debilitating requirement of a diagnoses.”

    Yes, this is a problem. The “mental health professions” do need to learn the concept of “live and let live.” Since they are the “omnipotent moral busy bodies,” about whom C.S. Lewis forewarned us.

  • I got the over 80% number from this scientific journal sited article.

    https://www.madinamerica.com/2016/04/heal-for-life/

    And based upon my experience of the sexual assault of my very young child, medical evidence of which was eventually handed over to me.

    As well as the confessions to me of a “dirty little secret of the two original educated professions,” and the confession to me – by ladies of my childhood religion – that “we are partners with the mental health professionals.”

    I disagree, “the idea that 80% of mental health cases are actually PTSD and misdiagnosed doesn’t seem to be correct.” The medical evidence seems to contradict your opinion.

    But I totally agree, “A central issue in Anti-psychiatry is that a diagnosis can be made by non-doctors, that is psychologists- people with no medical training.” I don’t know why this is even legal.

    I also totally agree, “not a single chemical test or blood test, to determine a psychiatric diagnosis [exists]. Claims of genetic defects and chemical imbalances are made without ever testing a patient first before drugging them.”

    And I agree, Risperdal causes dopamine problems, and can create a psychotomimetic reaction. I believe it’s medically known as anticholinergic toxidrome poisoning.

  • “clinicians should consider psychotherapy and other less-intrusive measures as first-line interventions before … antidepressant prescription.”

    Unfortunately many psychologists bought into big Pharma’s propaganda on the “antidepressants,” so their first line of treatment recommendations are to immediately put someone on an antidepressant and/or antipsychotic. Rather than actually doing some form of “psychotherapy” or other “less-intrusive measures as first-line interventions.”

    But I will confess, in my case, my psychologist was functioning as the child abuse covering up “partner” of my former religion. As opposed to actually functioning as a “therapist” for me, the person paying her.

    I do most definitely agree, however, that “Antidepressants Do Not Improve Quality of Life,” and the medical and psychological industries do need to garner insight into the common adverse and withdrawal symptoms of them.

  • I agree, it’s likely intentional deception by Hollywood and the mainstream media. But I also agree, psychology is most definitely NOT innocent. Psychology’s “SELF-INFLICTED wound” is due to their intentional choice to follow psychiatry down the scientifically “invalid” DSM path. And I can’t name too many American psychologists (the great Philip Hickey is one) who are – even now that the DSM has been debunked – speaking out against the “status quo.”

  • I’m not so certain that you are correct about the fraud of the “satanic panic” stuff. Since I know of people who’ve worked to help save child abuse victims, some of whom dealt with SRA. And I am aware of SRA victims’ stories.

    And especially since we are now living in a “pedophile empire,” where child sex trafficking and pedophilia are running amok.

    https://www.amazon.com/Pedophilia-Empire-Chapter-Introduction-Disorder-ebook/dp/B0773QHGPT

    Where over 80% of those defamed with the “mental health” stigmatizations are child abuse survivors. And covering up child abuse has long been the business of the psychological profession.

    Many thanks (sarcasm) to the systemic child abuse and rape covering up criminals of the “mental health professions,” whose “bible” is a systemic child abuse covering up theology.

    And shame on the religions that have “partnered” with the scientific fraud based “mental health professionals,” who claim to know nothing about the common adverse effects of the drugs they force onto innocent others.

    Thank you for telling your story, Tyler.

  • And the truth is, at a minimum, some of our paternalistic religions literally “partnered” with the DSM “bible” thumpers decades – or centuries – ago. And the DSM “bible” thumpers function as the child abuse and rape cover uppers for these religions. A confession, from an ELCA insider, about these systemic child abuse covering up crimes of the bishops of my former religion.

    And these systemic child rape covering up crimes are known as “the dirty little secret of the two original educated professions,” according to an ethical pastor of a religion, other than my childhood religion.

    I do agree, “The spiritual prescription that she is calling to affect the change in the mental health system is already codified in most of the worlds sacred texts and most world religions that I am aware of. The principles of compassion, sharing, interconnectedness, etc are embodied in the lives of the saints, mystics, and justice/peace seekers, however the spiritual texts are being co-opted and abused by people lusting after power.”

    And this has been going on for decades.

    Thank you for your truth telling, Irit.

  • Your title had me hoping for another concise criticism, and perhaps another win, for those of us speaking out against psychiatric “corruption,” “tyranny,” and their systemic harm of their clients.

    I’m so saddened that you will no longer be writing, as you are one of my favorite truth speakers, Philip. God bless.

  • “. . . By defending the medical model of human distress, the mental health professions have put themselves in an ethically untenable position that is not worthy of trust or respect.”

    I completely agree. Glad to see at least some “mental health professionals” are confessing to the need to end the scientifically “invalid” “medical model of human distress,” however.

    But I am just one of the many who – years ago – lost almost all trust and respect for the “mental health professions.” And as too many “mental health professionals” know – since too many treated their clients as if they were “not worthy of trust or respect,” for decades. (This is a systemic problem.)

    It’s not that hard to destroy a person’s life and/or reputation, if you view their life as “not worthy of trust or respect.” A friendly reminder … to the unethical and unrepentant, who have recently found themselves unworthy “of trust or respect.”

  • Beautifully written, Karin. I agree with so much of what you’ve said, as one who was also misdiagnosed as “bipolar.” As one who is also an artist, and used many song lyrics to help me regain my hope and heal. And as one who also escaped psychiatry (initially) at the (always my lucky number) age of 42.

    “There is no change in the world, or inside ourselves, unless the story changes,….” And our stories are every bit as relevant to society, actually more relevant – given the scientific fraud of psychiatry – than are psychiatry’s lies / “song.”

  • “But stigma, it’s said, prevents them from getting help.” Well, there’s something to be said for avoiding being defamed with a so called “life long, incurable, genetic illness” – especially since none of the DSM disorders is even a valid diagnosis.

    http://psychrights.org/2013/130429NIMHTransformingDiagnosis.htm

    “anxiety disorders and depression are not exactly ‘chemical imbalances’ but malfunctions in how our body reacts to emotions, ‘no different from being attacked by a virus or an allergen.’ This seems to imply our efforts in debunking the fraud of the ‘chemical imbalance’ theory have possibly made some progress. And if the “mental illnesses” are ‘no different from being attacked by a virus or an allergen,’ that would imply the “mental health” industry may have gotten rid of their “genetic” theory of etiology?

    “JLY’s third message is that anxiety and depression aren’t just a dangerous ‘real medical condition’ but an incurable one.” Yet they’ve maintained the “incurable” aspect of their DSM disorders, despite the fact that “viruses” don’t tend to cause “life long, incurable” illnesses?

    “I’m concerned about the inaccuracies and omissions that reveal the filmmakers’ lack of awareness of recent research and social movements.” Indeed, by chance were the filmmakers funded by big Pharma, the APA, and/or NAMI?

    “In my experience, episodes of anxiety and depression dwindle in the face of hope and empowerment.” I agree, but all the current “medical model” has to offer is “life long, incurable,” “invalid,” “mental illnesses” and forced neurotoxic poisonings … which rob individuals of hope and empowerment.

    Honestly, it is past time to stop blaming “a broken brain,” and actually admit to the scientific fraud of the “medical model” and the DSM stigmatizations. And, let’s be realistic, coerced and forced drugging people is the epitome of stealing one’s power and rights.

    “Human rights” and “forced treatment” are mutually exclusive concepts. So if the “mental health professions” ever want to claim to be about “human rights,” their “right” to force “treat” people needs to end.

  • “the most prevalent rights violations issue in most healthcare settings was involuntary commitments and coercive measures. Typically justified as a kind of ‘protection’ for ‘patients,'”

    … when in reality involuntary and coercive measures are likely often used by doctors to profiteer off of covering up easily recognized malpractice and medical evidence of child abuse, in well insured, innocent individuals. As was the case with this, finally FBI convicted, criminal doctor (albeit, he was only convicted for financial crimes against the state, not the harm he did to the – God knows how many – clients he had psychiatrically “snowed,” performed unneeded tracheotomies on, and likely murdered):

    https://www.justice.gov/usao-ndil/pr/oak-brook-doctor-convicted-kickback-scheme-sacred-heart-hospital

    “the already existing biopsychosocial model used to formulate the etiology of and treatment plans for mental health conditions should be enriched by fully integrating human rights into the model.”

    There is absolutely zero in the “already existing biopsychosocial model” – the DSM “bible” (a scientifically “invalid,” stigmatizing, billing code, systemic child abuse covering up,”bible”) – that discusses “the etiology of … mental health conditions.”

    “The DSM has long claimed to be “atheoretical” about the causes of mental disorders.”

    https://www.psychologytoday.com/us/blog/your-child-does-not-have-bipolar-disorder/201402/dsm-5-and-child-neglect-and-abuse-1

    “the literature review revealed that rarely, if ever, does the general population question involuntary and coercive treatment.” But there are millions of people who don’t want to be coerced and forced to take the Covid “vaccine.”

    I would imagine the “literature” is silent on this because it’s written by the very “mental health professionals” who want to maintain their right to force drug people. And because the general population hadn’t assumed that our government (via the social workers, CPS, etc.) and our religions (via their “partnership” with the “mental health professionals”) would be dumb enough to “partner with” a faction of the so called medical community. So that the “mental health profession” could function as “omni-potent moral busy bodies,” and become systemic child abuse and rape cover uppers – which is the number one actual societal function of today’s psychiatric and psychological industries.

    “all people with mental health conditions and psychosocial disabilities are rights holders and serve policymakers in actively promoting services permitting the complete realization of their rights.”

    What does this even mean? And why do you claim people should “serve policymakers,” rather than policymakers should be functioning to serve the people? Perhaps you believe that the policymakers should only serve in big Pharma and the “mental health industries'” best interest, not in the general public’s best interest? Which is what seems to be currently going on.

    The bottom line is the only way to ever bring “human rights” to the “mental health” industries, is to take away the “mental health” workers’ right to force drug people.

  • “The authors suggest that there is no way to measure the quality of psychiatric care—and, therefore, that psychiatrists should not be judged for failing to provide good care to their patients.”

    Oh, that ol’ “mysterious mental illness,” “it’s all too complicated for non-psychiatrists” cliche. But this is just untrue.

    Did you make your client “manic” with an antidepressant and/or ADHD drug? Then you’ve provided “quality psychiatric care.” Did you make your client “psychotic” or apathetic – via anticholinergic toxidrome or neuroleptic induced deficit syndrome – with an antipsychotic? Yeah for you, that’s “quality psychiatric care.” Did you cover up child abuse, rape, or easily recognized iatrogenesis with psych drugs? Yeah for you, that’s “quality psychiatric care.”

    It’s just not that difficult to understand what the psychiatrists believe is “quality psychiatric care.” Psychiatry is harming people for profit, and for nefarious reasons.

    “In fact, they suggest that having to worry about the quality of care they provide will ‘disincentivize psychiatrists from treating Medicare patients.'”

    Well, since all the psychiatry does is make people “mentally ill” with their psych drugs, ‘disincentiviz[ing] psychiatrists from treating Medicare patients’ would be a good thing.

    And out of curiosity, what “penalties for psychiatrists who provide low-quality care” exist, since most lawyers won’t take cases against the psychiatrists? I know of no “penalties for psychiatrists who provide low-quality care.”

    Including a nut job of a psychiatrist – who was the psychiatric “snowing” partner-in-crime – of this now FBI convicted criminal doctor.

    https://www.justice.gov/usao-ndil/pr/oak-brook-doctor-convicted-kickback-scheme-sacred-heart-hospital

  • Well, given the fact that my former psychologist thought a dream was “psychosis,” implying all who dream are “psychotic.” Which would mean all of humanity is “psychotic,” since we all dream.

    I’d say we’ve been dealing with “concept creep” and over “psychiatrization” for decades, or centuries.

    But anything is acceptable – pathological lying, neurotoxic poisoning, attempted thievery – according to the psychology, whose goal is covering up child abuse and rape, for their pastor “partners.”

    No doubt, there is “a tendency to pathologize what Freud called ‘common unhappiness,’” or even legitimate distress or concern. And Freud was a child abuse cover upper, too.

    https://www.indybay.org/newsitems/2019/01/23/18820633.php?fbclid=IwAR2-cgZPcEvbz7yFqMuUwneIuaqGleGiOzackY4N2sPeVXolwmEga5iKxdo

    So one must ask, how many centuries will it take for psychology and psychiatry to get out of the illegal child abuse covering up business, especially given the fact that the majority of those psychiatrically stigmatized are child abuse survivors?

    https://www.madinamerica.com/2016/04/heal-for-life/

  • “It’s not a free market at all. It’s a swamp. It’s a giant swamp that’s killing people in large numbers ….”

    Well, of course a medical system that has a faction of its workers (including the so called “social workers”) forcing neurotoxins onto healthy, well insured young mommies and children – under the guise of scientifically “invalid” “mental illnesses” – for profit, and nefarious reasons, isn’t remotely a “free market.”

    “Force” and “free market” are mutually exclusive concepts.

    We need to get those who medically unnecessarily force drug people for profit – the omni-potent moral busy bodies of the scientific fraud based “mental health” system – out of the medical system.

    “’This is a system that was designed by an immensely clever team of devils who programmed it in a way that is self-protecting and really difficult to change,’ he said.”

    I’m not certain how “clever” those “devils” are, given the fact that they designed the medical system with the common sense knowledge that “It is difficult to get a man to understand something, when his salary depends on his not understanding it.”

    Leaving most psychiatrists, doctors, and other DSM “bible” billers, being incapable of understanding that the psych drugs are neurotoxins.

    But I do agree, the system is “self-protecting and really difficult to change.”

    “One fact is that they unleashed these extremely powerful opioids on to the general public as if they were jelly beans at an Easter parade and that has not happened in Europe,”

    Gosh, a repeating of the worst of history, Brits? But I do agree, any doctor who has delusions that the opioids are “safe pain meds,” as my doctors did, really are too stupid to be doctors.

    But since a lot of American lawyers and courts do seem to be in bed with the doctors – and don’t take well documented malpractice cases. (Hum, and those lawyers and judges all took the BAR, pledging allegiance to Great Britain, instead of the people of America, right?)

    Are we looking at how the British are actively working to destroy freedom and justice in America, with their “devilish” systems and mind altering drugs?

    But, of course, it all leads to those “devish” globalist banksters, whose fraud based, non-“free market,” Ponzi scheme of a banking system, that we in America call the Federal Reserve – a private banking system whose money all the medical and “mental health” system, legal and educational systems, et al worship – is ultimately the real problem.

    Of course, the fraud goes infinitely deeper, when one researches into the fraud of US birth certificates, the legal definition of “person,” maritime courts, etc., etc.

    The bottom line is we do have criminal “devils,” who have set up a lot of bad systems in America. And ‘criminal’ is not quite the same thing as ‘clever.’

  • KateL, I too feel that way, as a psych survivor, in regards to the mainstream medical community, which I agree is sad.

    I was, thankfully, able to get the head of family medicine at a very well respected hospital, to take my psych misdiagnosis off my medical records, by medically explaining the prior malpractice to him.

    But I did later deal with a moronic, likely psychiatrist, from that hospital – after I’d been diagnosed as physically healthy (I’d gone to the hospital due to pain caused by a pulled muscle over my heart) – ask me “are you depressed?”

    That “Dr. Paine” was easily dismissed, by telling him no, and politely explaining I was allergic to the anticholinergic drugs.

    But I agree with you, once psychiatrically misdiagnosed, attempting to maintain a mutually beneficial and truthful relationship with the mainstream medical industry is seemingly fruitless.

    At least my medical records have theoretically been cleared, but my trust in mainstream medical doctors has largely been destroyed.

    So I’m at the point of looking into alternative medical doctors. Since mainstream medicine’s trust and profiteering, based upon the scientifically “invalid” DSM, has largely destroyed my trust in mainstream medicine.

    And since I already know mainstream medicine’s trust in the psychiatric DSM theology, is all based upon their desire to have psychiatry cover up their easily recognized iatrogenesis.

  • “It’s a sign that ‘the diagnostic paradigm is crumbling at the foundations,’ said the member in question. And when an old order collapses, those who defend it inevitably turn vicious.”
    Indeed they do.

    I must say I do appreciate the truth speaking British psychologists and psychiatrists – they’ve done, and are doing, way more truth telling than almost any psychiatrist in the US, except Peter Breggin.

  • “the authors found value and reliability in the notion that people who accepted unequal treatment of humans also preferred a system in which humans dominate animals.”

    So does that mean most who – not just “accept” – but are fighting to maintain the staggeringly unequal, unjust, and scientifically “invalid” “mental health” system – prefer “a system in which humans dominate animals”?

    Or perhaps, “EDO could be used in future surveys to think about how human-centered someone’s worldview is ….” And those who do not have a human-centered worldview should be prevented from working within the “mental health” industry.

    If, in fact, the “mental health” industry even needs to survive. Since we now know that the number one actual societal function of that pseudoscience based industries, psychology and psychiatry, is covering up child abuse and rape.

    https://www.indybay.org/newsitems/2019/01/23/18820633.php?fbclid=IwAR2-cgZPcEvbz7yFqMuUwneIuaqGleGiOzackY4N2sPeVXolwmEga5iKxdo

    https://www.madinamerica.com/2016/04/heal-for-life/

    Since, of course, covering up child abuse and rape are illegal activities.

    And we now also know the ADHD drugs and antidepressants can create the “bipolar” symptoms. And millions of children and adults have already had the common adverse and withdrawal symptoms of these drug classes misdiagnosed as “bipolar.” (“Anatomy of an Epidemic”)

    Not to mention we’ve also found the medical proof that “schizophrenia” is also likely a primarily iatrogenic illness. Given the fact that the antipsychotics can create both the negative and positive symptoms of “schizophrenia,” via both neuroleptic induced deficit syndrome and anticholinergic toxidrome.

  • Thank you, Robert, for this tribute to Thomas Jobe, which highlights the importance of his and Martin Harrow’s research findings.

    For those of us who were lied to, coerced, and forced to take antipsychotics, then left to search for medical proof of how those drugs made us ungodly sick. Since the psychiatrists, and too many of the mainstream doctors, are unwilling to admit to what they were all taught in med school. Which is that the anticholinergic drugs – including the antidepressants and antipsychotics – can create “psychosis,” via anticholinergic toxidrome, in the short term.

    I believe it is of paramount importance to continue to highlight Harrow and Jobe’s findings on the long run adverse effects of the antipsychotics. Since no one should ever be coerced or forced to take drugs that are medically known to make a person “psychotic,” and cause lots of long run harm, as well – and all under the disingenuous guise of “help.”

    My condolences to Thomas Jobe’s wife, family, and friends. And, please know, Thomas’ work was, and is, very important to those of us who were harmed by psychiatry.

  • “psychiatry’s worsening treatment outcomes despite increased psychiatric treatment should provoke at least the consideration that a revolutionary paradigm shift is necessary,” indeed. But, no doubt, those DSM “bible” thumpers want to “maintain the status quo” instead.

    Thank you for the book review, Bruce. But I must say I have a hard time reading books written by psychiatric apologists, so I likely won’t buy it.

  • “One explanation is that the prescribers, too, are unaware of adverse effects, how to distinguish between withdrawal and relapse, and how psychiatric medications work.”

    Every doctor – including the psychiatrists – is taught in med school that the antidepressants and antipsychotics can create psychosis, via anticholinergic toxidrome. So we know the psychiatrists are NOT ignorant of this fact.

    But I do agree there does seem to be a staggering amount of ignorance and/or denial – on the part of the psychiatrists – as to the adverse effects of their drugs, how to distinguish between withdrawal and relapse, and how psychiatric medications work.”

    An example of this ignorance is the fact that none of the “mental health” workers I worked with knew that “brain zaps” was a common symptom of antidepressant discontinuation syndrome until 2005.

    Many thanks to John Read for his truthful research.

  • I must say I think any “mental health professional” today who doesn’t understand there’s a difference between the mind and the brain; and doesn’t understand the ADHD drugs and antidepressants can create the “bipolar” symptoms; and doesn’t understand that the antipsychotics can create both the positive and negative symptoms of “schizophrenia;” and doesn’t understand that making people sick with forced or coerced psych drugging and lies is immoral.

    Those people are too stupid and unethical to be “mental health professionals,” since they’ve promised to “first and foremost do no harm,” yet done nothing but harm their clients, out of their own ignorance.

  • I’ve found the psychologists and psychiatrists I dealt with do a tremendous amount of assuming, which does make an ass out of – not just their clients – but sometimes also the psychologists and psychiatrists themselves.

    I’m quite certain my former psychiatrist felt like an ass, when he literally declared my entire life to be “a credible fictional story,” after learning that almost everything he wrote in his medical records about me was false. And I know a psychologist – who attacked me years later – felt like an ass, after I pointed out to him that the number one actual societal function of the psychological and psychiatric industries is covering up child abuse and rape.

    Thank you, Philip, for your continued critiques of the scientific fraud based psychiatric DSM “bible” theology. And I agree with you, “it would be really helpful if there were an opaque wall between pharma and the university research labs.”

  • Thank you, Niall, for so logically explaining “that there is no medical evidence, no legal basis and no criminological evidence to justify involuntary treatment.”

    I agree, our current “mental health system” is in a “heinous state of affairs;” and the “medieval practice” of force drugging people should end. Many thanks to the honest psychiatrists, like yourself, who are speaking the truth.

    And I guess the only other slice of wisdom I may give to the masses of non-repentant “mental health professionals,” comes from a power higher than myself, “Judge not, that ye be not judged.”

  • Given the fact that the antipsychotics can create “psychosis,” via anticholinergic toxidrome. And given the fact that the antipsychotics / neuroleptics can also create the negative symptoms of “schizophrenia,” via neuroleptic induced deficit syndrome.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Toxidrome
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Neuroleptic-induced_deficit_syndrome

    Completely withholding antipsychotics would decrease the incidence of “psychosis,” all “psychosis” related disorders (like “bipolar”), and “schizophrenia,” too.

    Thank you for your repeated reporting on the truth about the fact that the antipsychotics are neurotoxins, Peter. Let’s hope the “mental health professionals” some day garner insight into this reality.

  • “Western European and North American accounts of psychosis and mental illness fail in the Global South and indigenous communities.” And they’ve failed in North America and Western Europe as well. For God’s sake, the DSM was debunked as “invalid” in 2013, by the head of the NIMH. For goodness sakes, how long will it take for the “mental health” system to garner insight into the fact that their DSM “bible” is “bullshit”?

  • Interesting history, which I was not taught about in my art history classes. I’m a graduate of an art school that was tied for the number one art school in America, the year my work was displayed on their walls.

    “For either modernism, like Dada, breaks with the boundaries of conventionality and normality in art, including anti-art, and abolishes these boundaries, or it clings to the idea that “mental illness” can show itself in “pictorial products” („Geisteskrankheit“ in “Bildnerei”) – Prinzhorn’s choice of words – that excludes from art the works by those imprisoned and slandered in the psychiatric wards.”

    I most definitely DON’T agree that excluding “from art the works by those imprisoned and slandered in the psychiatric wards.” Especially given the fact that the “mental health system” has seemingly been targeting the artists in America for decades.

    My art portfolio terrifies Lutheran psychologists I dealt with – to the point one psychologist attempted to steal all profits from my work, my work, my story, and everything else from me with a bogus “art manager”/conservatorship contract – attempted art thievery, just like the Nazi psychiatrists did back then.

    But I must somewhat agree, “mental illness” can show itself in “pictorial products,” since my portfolio beautifully – albeit “too truthfully” for the “psych professionals” – visually documents America’s iatrogenic “bipolar epidemic.” Given an understanding of the etiological “bipolar” research in Robert Whitaker’s book, “Anatomy of an Epidemic.” And an understanding of the etiology of my actual “mental illness” symptoms, which were created by a psychiatrist, via anticholinergic toxidrome poisoning.

    If, by chance, you’re looking for an artist whose work is not technically “outsider art,” since I was called a “Chicago Chagall” by that psychologist who attempted to steal from me. But if, by chance, you’re looking for an artist whose work could help tie together “insider” and “outsider” art, I’d love to talk to you.

    Since, I guess, I’m a little bit of both an “insider” and “outsider” artist. But I’m also an independent psychopharmacological researcher who found the medical evidence of the iatrogenic etiology of both the positive and negative symptoms of the “sacred symbol of psychiatry.”

  • Interesting collection (all of your writings) of your recollections and insights, Sean. As one who had a not-personally-hired psychiatrist (who was partnered with a now FBI convicted doctor) who wanted to send me to EMHC. I will say I am very grateful I was able to avoid EMHC.

    But I will also say the psychiatric and psychological industries do utilize similar tactics and lies, outside of the locked wards – and with innocent people – as they do inside, and with those labeled as NGRI – those they assume are criminals.

    But the innocent people the “mental health” system seems to attack – outside of locked wards – are largely the innocent victims of child abuse and sexual assault crimes.

    https://www.indybay.org/newsitems/2019/01/23/18820633.php?fbclid=IwAR2-cgZPcEvbz7yFqMuUwneIuaqGleGiOzackY4N2sPeVXolwmEga5iKxdo

    In my case, I was attacked by/for the systemic child abuse and rape covering up criminals of my childhood religion. I’d be one of the many innocent “widows” mentioned in the Preface of this book.

    https://books.google.com/books?id=xI01AlxH1uAC&printsec=frontcover&source=gbs_ge_summary_r&cad=0#v=onepage&q&f=false

    I don’t know that I personally stand in support of NGRI pleas at all, but am curious whether you thought the BS you dealt with in EMHC, et al was better than going to jail or not?

    Personally, my gut feeling is a return to the actual rule of law – and an elimination of the scientific fraud based “mental health” system altogether – would be better. But maybe you – or others – can provide insight from the other side of psychiatry’s “client” base, or those researching into psychiatry’s systemic crimes?

  • Usually, you’re funnier, and more poignant. But thank you, as always, Lawrence, for speaking the truth.

    Psychiatrists still are “feared authoritarians whose involuntary commitments, shackles, tranquilizers, and lobotomies have always been used to restrict their patients’ rights and liberty.”

    “All men are created equal” is the opposite of what the DSM “bible” dictates, since it’s just a book of scientifically “invalid” stigmatizations.

    Plus, correct me if I am wrong, but I’ve thought the fact that the antipsychotics are dopamine antagonists. And the fact that the psychiatrists are forcing them on people, with full knowledge that decreasing dopamine takes away “happiness,” is highly un-American.

    And just an FYI, the antipsychotics can create “psychosis” via anticholinergic toxidrome, so it’s good you were able to largely avoid them.

    For me, withdrawal from drugs that made me sick was what helped me overcome the malpractice with which I’d dealt. But hey, since you bought into the Kool-Aid, and found some other “mental health” industry panacea … well, whatever, glad you survived.

    “Will you report substandard — even if it is usual — mistreatment … ?

    “. . . Will you make that phone call … ?

    “Will you email … ?

    Dr. Cyrus and Medscape might want to take some time to read and digest the scientific psychopharmacological research that those of us on the scientific truth telling side have been exposing for decades … scientifically valid information, that’s seemingly still largely being dismissed as “anti-psychiatry.”

    But I’m glad to see some psychiatrists honestly speaking out about the “atrocious and horrific parts of our country’s mental health system.”

    I will say there are those of us who stand against child abuse, and the systemic child abuse covering up crimes of the “mental health professionals.”

    https://www.indybay.org/newsitems/2019/01/23/18820633.php?fbclid=IwAR2-cgZPcEvbz7yFqMuUwneIuaqGleGiOzackY4N2sPeVXolwmEga5iKxdo

    And when psychologists attack innocent families’ of child abuse survivors, to cover up other psychologists’ child abuse covering up crimes, on Facebook.

    Sometimes, a person whose had the misfortune of dealing with a psychologist, who attacked an innocent family that had already dealt with prior psychological child abuse covering up crimes, can make a mockery of that subsequent psychologist. Who wanted to perpetuate the systemic child abuse covering up crimes of the psychologists of his religion – via Facebook.

    https://books.google.com/books?id=xI01AlxH1uAC&printsec=frontcover&source=gbs_ge_summary_r&cad=0#v=onepage&q&f=false

    My point is, the “privacy concerns” do not only apply to the so called “clients,” but also to the systemic child abuse and rape covering up by “mental health professionals,” when they attack a person via Facebook.

    And the exposing of the systemic crimes of so called “mental health professions,” via social media should be a concern for all of you, as well.

  • This article largely synopsizes why the behavior of the psychological and psychiatric industries so often fails.

    “The Five A’s are:

    “Attention:” Too many of the “evidence based” DSM “bible” billers only pretend to give a person “attention,” while they search for a DSM diagnosis, with which they can stigmatize the person.

    “Acceptance:” Since all the DSM disorders are scientifically “invalid” stigmatizations, and stigmatizations are a form of defamation of character, rather than being descriptions of people who should be “accepted for who we are.” And since the “mental health professions” tend to focus on trying “to change us significantly,” rather than their embracing “our individuality.” There are innate lack of acceptance issues with our “mental health professions,” and their DSM “bible” theology.

    “Appreciation:” As one who was declared “w/o work, content, and talent” – prior to any of my “mental health professionals” ever bothering to even look at my work. I will say “appreciation for our contributions” seems to be the antithesis of the goal of too many “mental health professionals.”

    Thankfully, in my case, my psychiatrist finally bothered to look at my work – declared it to be “insightful” and “work of smart female” – so he weaned me off his neurotoxins. But I will say, I’ve since noticed a staggering level of lack of “appreciation” for the artists and creatives in general, by the DSM “bible” worshippers.

    “Affection: Children and adults need emotional, spiritual and physical affection. When we give affection, it is the act of showing others that we care about them.” I did not find any of my “mental health professionals” provided emotional or physical affection. To the contrary, my psychologist defamed me to my husband, thus she destroyed my marriage, the place I had previously gotten emotional and physical affection. She also professionally distanced herself from her clients, and she literally blasphemed the Holy Spirit in her medical records – after fraudulently claiming to be a “holistic, Christian talk therapist.”

    “Allowing: As children, we are allowed to move and begin to make choices on our own. It is letting others be who they are.” But since the goal of the “mental health professions” is to “try to change personality traits or beliefs, or blame or judge [others] for mistakes or differences.” Well ….

    “Allowing is the essence of unconditional love.” But stigmatizing, then forcing and coercing neurotoxins on people, is the epitome of undeserved hatred.

  • I agree, “the best way to deal with most of the homelessness problem is to keep people away from all this mental health” system “evil.”

    Since I know I used to see primarily older homeless people, but too often today, I see homeless young people … and, of course, I wonder what drugs they were given as mere children.

    Of course, Steve and Bradford are right, “helping people meet their actual NEEDS without forcing them to do anything improves their ‘mental health.'” Dah, of course “HOUSING IN THE FIRST PLACE” is the sane response to the homelessness issue.

    It make zero sense, whatsoever – to anyone with a brain in their head that does not profiteer off of neurotoxic poisoning other humans – that drugs “cure” homelessness, rather than Housing First. How absurd!

  • “Certain professionals who follow the biomedical model turned … evil ….” Most definitely, “certain professionals who follow the biomedical model” will stoop to the lowest levels of criminality to cover up their industries’ scientific fraud and systemic crimes against humanity.

    “Every day, it was a war.” And “certain professionals who follow the biomedical model,” indeed, did turn it into a war. Despite the fact that we (the independent and honest psychopharmacological researchers and psych survivors) have overwhelming scientific evidence of the iatrogenic etiology of the two “most serious” DSM “mental illnesses.”

    Whitaker’s “Anatomy,” et al, credibly points this out in regards to “bipolar.” And the fact that the anticholinergic drugs (including the antidepressants and antipsychotics) can create “psychosis,” via anticholinergic toxidrome. And the antipsychotics (aka neuroleptics) can also create the negative symptoms of “schizophrenia,” via neuroleptic induced deficit syndrome.

    “This international collaboration could translate into something extremely revolutionary,” let’s hope and pray that happens.

    As one who is also an artist, who has noticed Marc Chagall – a Jewish artist who survived the Nazi psychiatric holocaust of the Jews – painted this “war” decades ago. I’d really like to see humanity end “certain professionals who follow the biomedical model” (DSM’s), reign of terror and error. So we may hopefully put an end to the repeating of the worst of human history, and our current “war,” against the scientific fraud of the DSM and psychiatric aspect of the ICD.

    Thank you for all your truth sharing Marcello, Laura, Mad(t) in Italy, and MiA.

  • Thank you, Robert Whitaker, for pointing out this systemic “mental health” industry abuse of children. But I do agree with Greg Shankland, that the psychiatrists should be charged with criminal negligence, or even criminal intent.

    Especially given the fact that every doctor is taught in med school that both the antidepressants and antipsychotics can create “psychosis,” via anticholinergic toxidrome. And many of these ADHD stigmatized children have already ended up misdiagnosed as “bipolar.” At which point the children are forced to take the antipsychotics and/or antidepressants, as well.

    Indeed, it appears to be criminal, intentional, systemic, psychiatric abuse of children – and all of psychiatry’s clients. And since creating “mental illnesses” in children – or adults – for profit is the opposite of the psychiatrists’ promise to “first and foremost, do no harm.” This systemic psychiatric iatrogenesis needs to end.

  • Park prescriptions are a good idea. I know when I was living through my 2006 drug withdrawal induced “super sensitivity manic psychosis” – aka my mystical, mysterious, musical awakening to my dreams and healing journey – “Show me a garden that’s bursting into life” was blaring on the radio, as I was working on creating my daughter’s “secret garden.”

    Working in my yard was very helpful to me during my healing journey. But I did also do some “Let’s waste time Chasing cars,” in real life, that summer. Plus I did lots of biking in the parks, oftentimes with my children. So I absolutely agree, “Nature Is Healing.”

    It’s rather a shame, however, that the American psychiatric industry believes locking people away in a room with no windows, not allowing them to have visits from their family and friends, and “snowing” them with psych drugs, is what heals people from a drug withdrawal induced mania. Since that’s the opposite of how to assist a person productively get the excess energy experienced during a mania out.

    Giving people the freedom to work in their gardens, spend time with their loved ones, and bike in the parks are much more productive ways to heal from a drug withdrawal induced mania, than forced “snowings” / druggings in hospitals.

    Nature prescriptions are a good idea.

  • “There is much work to coalesce prescriber and service user knowledge and experience, increase provider understanding of reasons individuals choose to discontinue, and improve prescribers’ ability to support users through the discontinuation process.”

    Absolutely, this is where the undeserved psychiatric research funding should be funneled. Since safely weaning people off of the psych drugs is of paramount importance, if “public health” – or reducing health care costs – is the actual goal.

    Especially given the reality that the antidepressants and ADHD drugs can create the “bipolar” symptoms. The antidepressants and antipsychotics can create the positive symptoms of “schizophrenia,” like “psychosis,” via anticholinergic toxidrome. And the antipsychotics / neuroleptics can create the negative symptoms of “schizophrenia,” via neuroleptic induced deficit syndrome.

    Let’s hope funding of “mental health” research is taken away from those whose goal is making people sick for profit, and geared toward better “public health” – which would require psych prescribers to properly wean people off the psych drugs – instead.

  • Thank you as always, John Read, for speaking the truth about the psychiatric industry’s systemic, continuing, crimes against their “clients,” and humanity in general.

    Just an FYI, at least in the US, the myth of a war between the psychological and psychiatric industries, is merely a myth. As in the US, the psychologists function to funnel people off to the psychiatrists. Mostly – according to the medical evidence – so the psychologic and psychiatric industries can function as the two extremes of a systemic, primarily child abuse covering up, “mental health” industry / pendulum.

  • Thank you so much, Michael, for truthfully reporting that “drug regulators frequently approve drugs with uncertain clinical value that may provide no added benefit to most patients;” information that is, primarily via hard earned common sense, obvious to most of us here at MiA.

    But given the worldwide “fierce Pharma” promotion of the EUA Covid “vaccines.” This common sense reality – regarding the systemic fraud and criminality of “fierce Pharma” – is relevant information for all to be awakened to. Thank you for speaking the truth.

  • “Yet recent forays into the study of psychopathology or phenomenological psychiatry continue to depict the mad as affected by an ‘impaired morality’ or even ‘moral idiocy.'”

    I found that the psychologists and psychiatrists I had the misfortune of dealing with tended to accuse me, of what they were doing. For example, my first psychologist claimed I was “delusional” for supposedly believing in a “delusional religious conspiracy,” about which I knew nothing. When in reality, the ladies of my childhood church – years later – literally confessed to me that the church employees were “partners” with the “mental health” workers.

    So that “delusional religious conspiracy” is an actual systemic medical/religious “partnership.” And since the number one actual societal function of the “mental health professions” is covering up child abuse and rape, which are crimes.

    https://www.indybay.org/newsitems/2019/01/23/18820633.php?fbclid=IwAR2-cgZPcEvbz7yFqMuUwneIuaqGleGiOzackY4N2sPeVXolwmEga5iKxdo
    https://www.madinamerica.com/2016/04/heal-for-life/
    https://books.google.com/books?id=xI01AlxH1uAC&printsec=frontcover&source=gbs_ge_
    summary_r&cad=0#v=onepage&q&f=false

    And since the definition of “conspiracy” is “An agreement between two or more persons to engage jointly in an unlawful or criminal act.” The medical/religious child abuse covering up “partnership” that my ex-religion has chosen to participate in, is – in fact – a real life medical/religious criminal “conspiracy.”

    Thus, an “‘impaired morality’ or even ‘moral idiocy'” is, in reality, a problem with the child abuse covering up “mental health professions” and religious leaders – not those of us who stand against child abuse.

    A reminder to my ex-religion regarding what Jesus said about child abuse … “It were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he cast into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little ones.”

    I will add that since the antidepressants and antipsychotics can create “psychosis,” via anticholinergic toxidrome poisoning.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Toxidrome

    A “fetishization of psychosis” is stupid, since “psychosis” is merely a common adverse and withdrawal reaction to the psych drugs.

    And explaining “psychosis” is not that difficult, at least for me. When I was suffering from anticholinergic toxidrome induced “psychosis,” I got the evil “voices” of the people who abused my child in my head. Once I’d been weaned off the psych drugs, I dealt with a drug withdrawal induced “super sensitivity manic psychosis.”

    The latter type “psychosis” merely functioned as a continuation of a spiritual journey, and an awakening to my dreams / subconscious self; and it was not bothersome to me, since it culminated in a “born again” type experience. And as a Christian, I know being “born again” is infinitely better than continuing to deal with child abuse covering up “mental health” and religious criminals.

  • Most definitely, both the psychological and psychiatric industries – who are mass murdering people with their psychiatric drugs – need to rethink their “Medicalization of Death.”

    Especially given the reality that their antidepressants and ADHD drugs can create the “bipolar” symptoms.

    https://www.amazon.com/Anatomy-Epidemic-Bullets-Psychiatric-Astonishing-ebook/dp/B0036S4EGE

    And their antidepressants and antipsychotics / neuroleptics can create the positive symptoms of “schizophrenia,” via anticholinergic toxidrome.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Toxidrome

    And their neuroleptics can also create the negative symptoms of “schizophrenia” via neuroleptic induced deficit syndrome.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Neuroleptic-induced_deficit_syndrome

    So, no doubt, we need an end to the “Medicalization of Death,” especially when the psychologists’ and psychiatrists’ scientific fraud based DSM “bible” belief system is involved.

  • “The pandemic’s secondary effects: the isolation, the harsh financial stress, the great unknown of their futures in a world altered by COVID-19 may continue to drive depressive symptoms in the student population.”

    But isn’t this the goal of the NWO banksters, and their psychiatric and psychological, scientific fraud based inspired, miseducated “partners”? At least I was told by a psychologist that drugging up the best and brightest American children, to “maintain the status quo,” was the goal of the psychologists.

  • “For psychiatrists to declare that people in these kinds of circumstances are actually suffering from an illness is essentially a condoning of the real precipitating problems, and serves as a formidable barrier to meaningful social reform.”

    I couldn’t agree more, and my personal concerns are a great example of this “condoning of the real precipitating problems.” In my case, I was psychiatrically drugged because I had concerns of the abuse of my children. An ELCA pastor had denied my innocent child a baptism on the morning of 9/11/2001, a form of spiritual child abuse, IMHO. Likely, according to that pastor’s own confession, and medical records which were eventually handed over to me almost four years later. Because that pastor was “soul mates” with the molester of my other very young child.

    These pastoral / mental health industries’ crimes did aid, abet, and empower the child molester. After the medical evidence of the sexual assault of my child was finally handed over, I was able to scare the school, on which the child molester was a school board member, into closing forever. But I was never able to get police – nor any other government agent – to actually investigate and arrest the child abusing and child abuse covering up criminals.

    And these child abuse covering up crimes are a systemic problem within both the psychological and psychiatric industries, and within the religions that have chosen to “partner” with the “mental health” industries.

    https://www.indybay.org/newsitems/2019/01/23/18820633.php?fbclid=IwAR2-cgZPcEvbz7yFqMuUwneIuaqGleGiOzackY4N2sPeVXolwmEga5iKxdo

    https://books.google.com/books?id=xI01AlxH1uAC&printsec=frontcover&source=gbs_ge_summary_r&cad=0#v=onepage&q&f=false

    And all this systemic child abuse covering up is by DSM design, since no DSM “bible” biller may ever bill for helping any child abuse survivor.

    https://www.psychologytoday.com/us/blog/your-child-does-not-have-bipolar-disorder/201402/dsm-5-and-child-neglect-and-abuse-1

    The fact that we have a “mental health” / religious industries’ systemic child abuse covering up “partnership” has resulted in America having very serious pedophilia and child sex trafficking problems.

    https://www.amazon.com/Pedophilia-Empire-Chapter-Introduction-Disorder-ebook/dp/B0773QHGPT
    https://medicalkidnap.com/2018/08/05/america-1-in-child-sex-trafficking-and-pedophilia-cps-and-foster-care-are-the-pipelines/

    Perhaps, given the fact that covering up child abuse and rape is the number one actual societal function of both the psychological and psychiatric industries, and such is illegal behavior. This may be why “Psychiatry [is] So Defensive About Criticism?” Since most of the psychiatrists literally belong in jail for their systemic child abuse covering up crimes.

    Sorry I can not imply as guiltless the majority of psychologists, Philip, since I had the misfortune of dealing with multiple child abuse covering up ELCA psychologists. But I do appreciate the psychologists who are speaking out against the scientific fraud of the psychiatric industry’s “invalid” DSM. Thank you, Philip.

  • “there is no evidence that ECT is effective for its target demographic—older women ….” Is this evidence that psychiatry is – in fact – misogynistic?

    Many thanks to John Read for speaking the truth about psychiatry’s barbaric, controversial ECT procedure.

  • “If stigmatization leads to the approval of more severe and coercive restraint measures, then preventative interventions to reduce coercive practices should include popular education programs targeting the reduction of bias towards individuals with several mental health issues.”

    I agree, educating the public regarding the fact that the ADHD drugs and antidepressants can create the “bipolar” symptoms – thus educating the public that “bipolar” is an iatrogenic illness, created by psychiatrists for profit, not a “genetic” illness – might help the public fear those who’ve been stigmatized as “bipolar” less.

    And since the antipsychotics can create “psychosis,” and other positive symptoms of “schizophrenia,” via anticholinergic toxidrome. Plus the antipsychotics / neuroleptics can also create the negative symptoms of “schizophrenia,” via neuroleptic induced deficit syndrome. Meaning “schizophrenia” is also an iatrogenic illness, created with the “gold standard schizophrenia treatments.”

    Well, properly educating the public regarding the fact that the psychiatrists are actually creating “bipolar” and “schizophrenia” symptoms in their clients, with their psychiatric drugs. This might help the public garner insight into the reality that those stigmatized with serious “mental health issues” are people who made the mistake of believing the “trust your doctor” propaganda, who were duped by psychiatrists. This makes us “too trusting” individuals, but not “violent” individuals.

    “Huber and colleagues recommend that reducing stigma and increasing familiarity with mental illness in the general public is an integral consideration for psychiatry in decreasing coercive measures.”

    The problem is the psychiatric industry has no desire to confess that their psych drugs can create the symptoms of their “invalid” DSM disorders. Plus, it’s not profitable for the psychiatric industry to decrease coercive measures, so they don’t want to do that either.

    But given the fact that the psych drugs can create the symptoms of the serious “mental illnesses.” It does make sense to – not just decrease coercive measures – but to end forced psychiatric treatment altogether.

    After all, even the psychiatrists made a promise to “first do no harm.” Although I will say, Hippocrates would be appalled by today’s psychiatric industry’s hypocrisy.

  • Thank you, Rachel and Sean, for so eloquently discussing this difficult – but very important – psychiatric abuse of power problem. And what’s really sad is that, not only are children being abused in psychiatric institutions, but covering up child abuse and rape has been the number one actual societal function of both the psychological and psychiatric industries for a long time … and it’s all by DSM design.

  • “Whatever is [in the DSM-5-TR] will be vastly overdiagnosed and overtreated because few clinicians can actually distinguish the conditions it describes.”

    And even fewer clinicians claim to garner insight into, or actually understand, the common adverse reactions and withdrawal symptoms of the psych drugs. Don’t you agree, Altostrata?

    “That’s part of the brilliance of the DSM – you can’t tell the[m] they’re wrong, because there’s no way to prove it!”

    That’s called a “Catch 22,” and everyone – except apparently psychiatry, and other criminals – knows “Catch 22’s” are unethical. So are you saying being unethical is “brilliance,” Steve? I doubt it. So let’s call the psychiatric industry out for whom they actually chose to become.

    And I will disagree, to some extent, that we here “can’t tell the[m] they’re wrong, because there’s no way to prove it!”

    Since we here have already pointed out that the ADHD drugs and antidepressants can create the “bipolar” symptoms. And we here at MiA have also pointed out that the antipsychotics can create the positive symptoms of “schizophrenia,” via anticholinergic toxidrome. Plus, we here at MiA have also pointed out that the antipsychotics / neuroleptics can create the negative symptoms of “schizophrenia,” via neuroleptic induced deficit syndrome.

    So we here at MiA have already pointed out the medical proof of the iatrogenic – not “genetic” – etiology of the two “most serious” DSM “mental illnesses.”

    And since the psychiatrists have zero proof that any of their “invalid” DSM disorders have a “genetic” etiology, nor any other biological cause. And their “chemical imbalance” theory was debunked “by serious psychiatrists” decades ago.

    The bottom line is we here can say the primary etiology of the two “most serious” DSM “disorders” is likely iatrogenesis – not some elusive, medically “invalid,” unproven “genetic” DSM disorder. Since we know the psych drugs are medically known to create the symptoms of both “bipolar” and “schizophrenia.”

    And I’m not sure of a much better way to disprove the psychiatrists’ DSM theology, than to medically prove their drugs literally create their two “most serious” DSM disorders.

    But, I’ll bow to Altostrata to point out more of the problems with the depression diagnosis, and it’s treatments.

  • Thanks, as always, Philip, I always love to read your blogs. Apparently, according to the psychiatrists, I’d be one of the “mischievous searchers for ‘flammable material to work with’?”

    “The fact is that psychiatry needs to be held accountable for the unhappy customers who have been traumatized, disenchanted, and devastated by their experiences. And if psychiatry’s leaders aren’t willing or prepared to hold the culprits accountable, can anyone blame the anti-psychiatry movement for stepping into this breach? It is also worth asking what exactly psychiatrists are doing that leaves ‘too many’ of their customers traumatized, disenchanted, and devastated by their experiences?”

    Yes, malpractice insurance exists, for a reason. And as to “what exactly psychiatrists are doing that leaves ‘too many’ of their customers traumatized, disenchanted, and devastated by their experiences?”

    They, the psychiatrists – and their medically untrained, psychiatric DSM “bible” billing, miseducated, psychological and social worker minion – have been misdiagnosing the common adverse and withdrawal effects of the psychiatrists’ ADHD drugs and antidepressants as “bipolar,” for decades.

    https://www.amazon.com/Anatomy-Epidemic-Bullets-Psychiatric-Astonishing-ebook/dp/B0036S4EGE

    And here’s you’re medical proof that way too many doctors – who’ve misdiagnosed people as “bipolar,” then treat them with the antipsychotics, blatantly lie to their clients – since all doctors were taught about anticholinergic toxidrome in med school.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Toxidrome

    So what causes “psychosis”? Antidepressant and/or antipsychotic induced anticholinergic toxidrome poisonings – or sleep deprivation, et al – but not the “invalid” DSM disorders.

    And can the antipsychotics / neuroleptics also create the negative symptoms of “schizophrenia”?

    Yes, indeed, they can – and the doctors all learned about this in med school, as well.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Neuroleptic-induced_deficit_syndrome

    I won’t go into all the psychiatric crimes I dealt with, after being weaned from anticholinergic toxidrome inducing drugs here, but I know I’m not alone. And the psychiatric and psychologic industries’ really have run amok. No industry should be given the right to play judge, jury, and executioner to anyone.

    “Dr. Aftab correctly describes a truly dreadful state of affairs, but berates certain selected members of the anti-psychiatry movement on the grounds that their hostility to psychiatry is ‘rampant’ and that in Dr. Aftab’s opinion their assertions constitute ‘misinformation’ and misguided arguments.'”

    Can Dr. Aftab actually disprove Robert Whitaker’s medical evidence of the iatrogenic etiology of “bipolar,” as pointed out in “Anatomy of an Epidemic,” and the DSM-IV-TR? Or my findings that the antipsychotics can create both the positive and negative symptoms of “schizophrenia,” via anticholinergic toxidrome and NIDS?

    “As I have mentioned, based on the social role that psychiatry currently occupies, excessive scrutiny is inevitable.”

    Oh, and what exactly is the primary “social role” that psychiatry and psychology currently occupy?

    https://www.madinamerica.com/2016/04/heal-for-life/
    https://www.indybay.org/newsitems/2019/01/23/18820633.php?fbclid=IwAR2-cgZPcEvbz7yFqMuUwneIuaqGleGiOzackY4N2sPeVXolwmEga5iKxdo

    Oh, yes, “based on the social role that psychiatry currently occupies” – which is the systemic covering up of child abuse, ACEs, sexual assault of children and women, child sex trafficking, pedophilia, and all other related paternalistic crimes – is the “social role that psychiatry currently occupies.”

    Indeed, “excessive scrutiny is inevitable,” and much needed, given the literally criminal nature of “the social role” that psychiatry and psychology have chosen to take on.

    “I contend that based on the quasi law-enforcement role that psychiatry has willingly embraced and continues to willingly embrace, and on the harm done to their customers in these and other contexts, a high level of scrutiny, and indeed condemnation, is not only inevitable, but warranted.”

    Psychiatry and psychology have taken on a “quasi law-enforcement role,” but they’re doing it all wrong. They’ve been aiding, abetting, and empowering pedophiles – by systemically stigmatizing and neurotoxic poisoning child abuse survivors, and their legitimately concerned family members, en mass, for decades. And all this psychological and psychiatric pedophile aiding, abetting, and empowering has left us all living in a “pedophile empire.” Or vise versa?

    https://www.amazon.com/Pedophilia-Empire-Chapter-Introduction-Disorder-ebook/dp/B0773QHGPT

    “This has been a topic of interest to me for many years, and my own philosophical work in this area reflects the conceptual inadequacies of our notion of mental illness.21″

    I agree, the DSM needs to be flushed.

    “This is the core issue in the entire debate. But the notion of mental illness is not elusive; in fact, it is crystal clear. It is an error – but it is not elusive in any ordinary sense of the term.”

    No, not “elusive” at all. The psychiatric DSM5 is a scientifically “invalid” book of billing code stigmatizations, that ascribe the common adverse and withdrawal symptoms of the psychiatric drugs, to the psychiatric DSM “disorders.”

  • “But until now, no one has suggested throwing open NG911 in unregulated fashion for uses by other people and organizations for entirely different purposes besides 911 emergency response—such as surveilling, tracking, and incarcerating people who are struggling with emotional distress.”

    Pragmatically speaking, is it even wise or morally acceptable to have as a “purpose,” “incarcerating people who are struggling with emotional distress.”

    Why in the world would anyone believe that “incarcerating” a distressed person, would be “helpful” to that distressed individual anyway?

    “But when people call the NSPL or any emotional crisis hotline, said Iorio, ‘It’s not clear that that’s people’s reasonable expectation at all. I would say that it’s the exact opposite. At the Lifeline website, there is nothing there to indicate that forced referral to police is a potential consequence of calling for mental health services.’”

    Most definitely, there should be “informed consent” regarding the potential dangers of utilizing NSPL’s “services” on that website. Although, that could be said for all “mental health professions,” too.

    “… the justification for giving the operators of 988 exact geolocation data for referral to police is incredibly thin.” A woman with a brain, thank you, Ms. Iorio.

    “Iorio called the prospect of 988 getting built-in geolocation technology ‘disturbing,'” oh no! Ms. Iorio is disturbed, no doubt, distressed! Call 988, and send out the cops, with guns a blazing! Just kidding, and pointing out the stupidity of “incarcerating” all distressed people again.

    Being disturbed or distressed, by disturbing or distressing things or events … is a normal human reaction. It is not something that warrants “incarceration,” stigmatizing, and forced neurotoxic poisonings.

    Thank you for reporting on this important topic, Rob.

  • I agree, the psych drugs – and withdrawal from them – do force people to deal with what’s in one’s subconscious. In my case, I was lucky, since I had a nice childhood. I’m very sorry, however, that you dealt with the death of your father at such a young age, and a mother and grandmother who were less than stellar at showing love – of course that was traumatic for you.

    And I do believe that your story is very important, since most of the psychological and psychiatric industries’ clients are child abuse and ACEs survivors. So thank you for telling your story, Hazel. It is a very important story.

    And we do need to get both the psychological and psychiatric industries out of the child abuse covering up business. We need to get them out of the business of defaming – with their “invalid” DSM disorders – and turning millions of child abuse survivors, and their legitimately concerned family members, into the “mentally ill,” with their psych drugs.

    I’m glad you were able to escape, and heal, Hazel. And, thank you again, for sharing your story. By the way, I too saw my first double rainbow, shortly after I’d been weaned off the psych drugs.

  • Yes, big and systemic – ‘delusions of grandeur’ I’m a doctor, and smarter than everyone else – medical mistakes, Steve.

    And what’s sad is that our medical community is only as credible as their sources of information. And the medical communities’ sources of information – other than the internet, which is being increasingly censored – are controlled by big Pharma.

    And “fierce Pharma” has NOT proven itself to be a credible source of information. Instead, they’ve proven themselves to be a greed only inspired industry. Thus, the vast majority of the doctors’ sources of information are bogus.

    And that’s “why patient-reported measures should be” respected as the “MOST IMPORTANT measure in every case?”

  • Interesting, thank you, Nagual. Shamanism makes more sense to me than the DSM “bible” theology. Which from my understanding, is really nothing more than a “bible” of scientifically “invalid” stigmatizations.

    “It is important to cry. It is important to grieve. Boys as well as girls, men AND women.” I did a piece of art I call “Tears of Both Joy and Sadness.” It actually made my brother tear up, in joy, when I explained that I was crying out of joy in the piece, based upon the toast he gave at my wedding. But I’ll add to that title “is not a disease,” for those in the psychological and psychiatric industries who believe tears of both joy and sadness is “bipolar.”

    “Crying is actually not always an invitation for another to impose their care.” Then most definitely, mere distress should not be invitation for another to impose their care either, yet that is exactly what the mental health industries do.

    “Songs in our life often serve as these markers.” My healing journey – after my “great escape” from psychology and psychiatry – most definitely took the form of a lyrical libretto love story. Where songs from my life reminded me of all my friends from my life. All of whom seemed to want to help me heal. It was a staggeringly serendipitous experience, but also a mystical, mysterious, musical awakening to my dreams and subconscious self. Perhaps, in a way, you could say it was kind of like finding a part of my soul, about which I knew nothing.

    “Fire is a great way to release the past and induce a healing response.” I did an oil painting right after I escaped psychology, psychiatry, and unfortunately I also had to leave my childhood religion, since they have “partnered” with the DSM “bible” believers. Nonetheless, in that piece I painted my former church engulfed in flames. And what was kind of weird was that same summer a large Catholic church in my hometown of Chicago had a burning roof. All while a song which included these lyric was playing on the radio.

    Fill up my cup, mazel tov
    Look at her dancin’, just take it off (I feel-)
    Let’s paint the town, we’ll shut it down
    Let’s burn the roof

    I had nothing to do with the Catholic roof burning, of course. But I had just painted a ‘Blue Chicago’ piece. And I most certainly was dancing after my escape from psychiatry, since withdrawal from the psych drugs can create a super sensitivity manic psychosis. And dancing was a good way to get that excess energy (mania) out.

    I hope the psychological and psychiatric industries may garner some insights from shamanism. Since I think I’ve read that people who’ve experienced psychosis are not considered sick in some cultures. But instead, they are considered special, and are often helped by shaman to become shaman.

    “A person whose spirit is filled with happiness and joy, with all the things they love, will be protected. Fill your spirit with the things you love and when there is loss, take time to grieve.” I think that having a love story within my dreams is what helped me during my unusual healing journey and awakening.

    But “that’s me in the spotlight losing my religion,” does also describe me. And I used to believe that churches were supposed to behave like extended families. So I am still, to some extent, grieving the fact that my childhood religion has “partnered” with the DSM “bible” believers. And together they are running a multibillion dollar, primarily child abuse covering up, criminal collaboration of industries.

    It’s betrayal and “abuse of power” on a staggering scale, so much so that it’s almost unfathomable. But I still grieve the loss of my former religion, since I still believe there are good people who used to attend the ELCA churches. So maybe that means it’s good news that my very large childhood church, now only has about ten people still attending it?

  • Who would know better whether a depression treatment helped – the person being treated or the person who stigmatized the person as “depressed”? Of course, “patient-reported outcome measures [should] be included in routine care as a tool to measure the quality of care.”

    An example of how a lack of listening to people who were given antidepressants resulted in the “mental health” industries being totally ignorant of a common symptom of antidepressant discontinuation syndrome, for decades.

    https://www.cambridge.org/core/journals/psychiatric-bulletin/article/brain-shivers-from-chat-room-to-clinic/642FBBAE131EAB792E474F02A4B2CCC0

    And do tell, what is “professional” about knowing nothing about the common adverse and withdrawal effects of the drugs one coerces and forces people to take?

  • “These findings, the authors note, can also be understood to suggest ‘that there exist internalized class-based prejudices in therapists ….'”

    I do believe this is most likely the case, only I found them to be biased against those living a “middle class” life, too. And I noticed, from reading my medical records, that at least one psychiatrist illegally nosed into my private finances, and declared me to be “unemployed.”

    When in reality I was a “super mom” in my neighborhood, a planning commissioner of my village, I was a co-chair of a 250 volunteer strong school art program, functioning as the Charter Rep for my local Boy Scout pack, helping with the Girl Scouts, as well as volunteering to do many, many other school and church activities, while I was also working on my art portfolio, and of course raising my children. “Living the dream,” as some of my neighbors called it.

    What do you think was the likelihood that I told that criminal psychiatrist I was “unemployed”? Zero. And, in case you doubt that psychiatrist was a criminal, here is her partner-in-crimes’ US justice department’s conviction announcement.

    https://www.justice.gov/usao-ndil/pr/oak-brook-doctor-convicted-kickback-scheme-sacred-heart-hospital

    I’m quite certain the quality of the “mental health” industries would be much higher, if they actually listened to, and believed, those they claim to be “helping.” Rather than getting lies and gossip from pedophiles, making mis-informed assumptions, and taking illegal shortcuts – as my medical records show were the sources of my psychologists’ and psychiatrists’ misinformation about me.

    And I will say, as soon as my other former psychiatrist finally bothered to look at my art work, he called it “insightful, “work of smart female,” and he weaned me off his neurotoxins.

    Then years later, another psychologist, after seeing a show of my work, nosed into my personal finances, and he wanted to become my “art manager.” He claimed because “the world might be ready for a Chicago Chagall,” which is a simplistic description of some of my work. But since his “art manager” contract was just a thievery / conservatorship contract, I declined his appallingly persistent demands to sign his contract.

    Anyone else here find that some working within the “mental health” field have a problem understanding words like “No thank you,” “Your drugs make me sick,” and “It’s against my religion to take your drugs”? I literally had to ask a bunch of “mental health” workers once, “Does anyone here speak English?”

    I agree, there is “a profound need for change in psychotherapeutic training, research, and method development.” There is also a profound need for an improvement in the psychological industry’s ethics.

    We do also need an end to the medical/religious “conspiracy” against child abuse survivors, and their legitimately concerned family members, which was confessed to me to be “the dirty little secret of the two original educated professions.”

    There is also a profound need for the “mental health” industries – particularly the systemic, child abuse covering up psychological industry – to garner insight into the concept of “Live, and let live.”

    https://www.indybay.org/newsitems/2019/01/23/18820633.php?fbclid=IwAR2-cgZPcEvbz7yFqMuUwneIuaqGleGiOzackY4N2sPeVXolwmEga5iKxdo

    There is also a profound need for people to garner insight into the fact that covering up child abuse is still technically illegal behavior in America. And that slice of wisdom does go out to the psychological, psychiatric, and religious industries – not to mention, apparently also the US government, and globalist “elite.”

  • Make no mistake, I totally agree with you, in regards to the fraud of the globalist banksters’ system, and the fraud of the psychiatrists’ system. They may be “too big to fail,” but both industries do need to be taken down. And I do believe if the people are not strong and intelligent enough to do so, God will.

    And most definitely the banking system controls the “mental health” industries … but it’s so much larger than that. It involves the satanic, systemic child abuse covering up crimes of the legal and judicial systems of America, the religions, not to mention our governments’ social workers’ and CPS’s systemic crimes.

    As like you, “I’m many years in and the implications are still almost too mind-boggling for me to process and I’ve seen through the con for a long time.”

    I just come from the ethical American – non bailout needing, nor taking – small American banking families’ side. And it seems you come from the, bought out and paid for – by the globalist banksters’ – and their miseducated “mental health” industries’ side. But it does seem you are actually trying to bring about truth, and a better world. And I thank you for that, Brett.

  • I do agree, rebel, as one who … 20+ years after getting the antidepressant discontinuation syndrome induced symptom of “brain zaps,” misdiagnosed … that the “psychiatric drugs might really [be] considered just ‘chemical ECT.'”

    So I do agree with you, that both ECT, and the psych drugs … that cause “brain zaps,” even if only when people are withdrawn from them inappropriately by doctors. They should likely all be made illegal.

  • I agree, “an important conversation that should be taking place within the psy-disciplines around the usefulness of diagnosis” is needed. Yet when one tries to have an important conversation – about, for example, Robert Whitaker’s “Anatomy of an Epidemic” – with the people, including the “mental health professionals,” of my childhood church.

    All I got is the ELCA employees refusing to discuss that book, and passing on their “mental health professionals'” glee, regarding this disclaimer being taken out of their DSM5.

    “Note: Manic-like episodes that are clearly caused by somatic antidepressant treatment (e.g., medication, electroconvulsive therapy, light therapy) should not count toward a diagnosis of Bipolar I Disorder.”

    Then I was told that the ELCA therapists have no plans of changing their ways, and that they were “partners” with the ELCA employees. I was sent to a nearby seminary to be shown that the DSM “bible” is being taught in a local seminary. Then, after I politely declined to work with people who refused to discuss DSM diagnostic problems. I was attacked by a psychologist wielding a classic thievery / conservatorship contract, disingenuously dressed up as an “art manager” contract.

    And, since I don’t want to be in a religion that has adopted, largely privately, the DSM “bible” theology. Yet still hypocritically preaches from the real Bible. And since I have no desire to be in a church that sicks a psychologist – who had hoped to steal all my money and work – onto a person. I did have to leave my childhood religion for good.

    That’s what I got when I tried to initiate a conversation about Robert Whitaker’s “Anatomy” in an ELCA church. Not only do the psy-disciplines not want to have important conversations, they resort to attempted thievery, to try to silence a well researched psychopharmacological researcher.

    I will say I’ve heard rumor my childhood church now has to pay people to sing in their choir, those choir members all stand 6′ apart, and that large church only has about 10 people attend there weekly. But, of course, our government declaring all pastors to be “non-essential” didn’t help that church.

    Yet I’m now attending another church – which is growing like gang busters – since that pastor is not afraid to discuss the truth. Including the truth that the ELCA psychologists, that I had the misfortune of dealing with, desperately wanted to cover up – the truth about our society’s pedophilia problems.

    Nonetheless, my experience shows that at least some within “the psy-disciplines” vehemently do NOT want to discuss the usefulness, or lack of usefulness, of the DSM diagnoses. And that conservatorship contract wielding psychologist literally told me his goal was to “maintain the status quo.”

    But I agree, the psy-disciplines do need to have a discussion about their DSM diagnoses, especially since their diagnoses were all declared to be “invalid,” by the head of the NIMH, nine years ago.

  • “How sickening that this is happening.” And how sickening that the systemic covering up of child abuse is the number one actual societal function of both the scientific fraud based, DSM “bible” believing, psychological and psychiatric industries.

    https://www.indybay.org/newsitems/2019/01/23/18820633.php?fbclid=IwAR2-cgZPcEvbz7yFqMuUwneIuaqGleGiOzackY4N2sPeVXolwmEga5iKxdo

    And all this systemic, paternalistic, child abuse covering up is by DSM design.

    “I tried to tell people my whole adult life about the fuckery of religion”

    Yes, my former childhood church has confessed to me that they have “partnered with” the DSM “bible” believers. Despite the fact that the sins of their religion’s systemic child abuse covering up leaders were previously recorded, by insiders of their own synod offices.

    Glad to hear you no longer “listen to doctors,” I hope and pray that most Americans are now learning that doing such is unwise.

    And I hope you find a way to heal, despite the typical long run adverse withdrawal symptoms of the psych drugs. And just an FYI, I’ve never found another report on the internet that anyone other than me, has suffered from “brain zaps” for over twenty years. So that will likely only be a short run adverse withdrawal symptom of the psych drugs for you.

    God bless, in what I hope ends up to be your healing journey. We need you!

  • I agree, “Navigating the Meaning of Psychosis [is] Important for Recovery.”

    My psychiatrist, who’d created “psychosis,” via anticholinergic toxidrome, insisted me and my psychosis were “w/o work, content, and talent” and “irrelevant to reality,” in his medical records.

    But since my anticholinergic toxidrome induced “psychosis” was an insane story about a couple who’d raped my three year old child, and their pastor, claiming they were “God, the Holy Spirit, and Jesus.” It wasn’t difficult for me to agree with my psychiatrist, that I should dismiss the stupidity of his anticholinergic toxidrome induced “psychosis.”

    But once the medical evidence of the rape of my very young child was handed over. Well, that made it very easy for me to leave my satanic, child abuse covering up psychiatrist. And become a psychopharmacological researcher, so I could find the etiology of how my psychiatrist had made me “psychotic.”

    I generally agree,”Navigating the Meaning of Psychosis [is] Important for Recovery.” But, in general, especially when the etiology of a person’s “psychosis” is dismissed, denied, and ignored. I do think finding the etiology of a person’s “psychosis,” is more important for recovery. And, finding the meaning of one’s psychosis is not that difficult, once one is handed over, and picks up their medical records, and does their medical research.

    But maybe the head of family medicine – at one of the most well respected hospitals in the country – was correct? When he stated that my research into the psychiatric crimes against me, and humanity – of systemically creating “psychosis” via anticholinergic toxidrome – was the research finding of a “one in a million” medical researcher.

    Irregardless, let’s hope and pray the “mental health” industries get out of the business of systemically anticholinergic toxidrome poisoning people, to make them psychotic, with the antidepressants and antipsychotics.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Toxidrome

  • “The researchers don’t suggest that researchers stop looking for neurobiological differences, though, or focus on the known risks—like childhood maltreatment, trauma, and lack of social support—which have high predictive value. Instead, they encourage funding of even larger neurobiological studies and artificial intelligence-driven statistics like ‘digital phenotyping.'”

    Well, when a country “is controlled by its system of credit. Our system of credit is concentrated. The growth of the nation, therefore, and all our activities are in the hands of a few men.” And when those “few men” want to destroy our nation, to bring about their NWO, and to cover up the Ponzi scheme that is their banking system, with a “Great Reset.”

    And to achieve this goal, these “few men” have literally been controlling all industries in our country with pedophilia blackmail schemes and child sex trafficking crimes, et al. While – in all deceptive and criminals manners possible – they have been stealing from the American people, via the taxation system, the housing crisis, et al.

    One industry that was instrumental to this “small group of dominant men” – way back in Nazi Germany, was the psychiatric industry. And in the US today, the psychiatric industry’s DSM “bible” billing, and systemic child abuse covering up partners – the psychological industry, the social worker, the Child Protective Service, and Foster care industries – are all controlled, and still begging for money, from this “small group of dominant men.” Not to mention, so are the mainstream religions, who have “partnered with” the “mental health” industries.

    I could give you a bunch of peer reviewed journal and other articles verifying my research, but I’ve already sited those articles many times before on this website. The reality is, as a society, we need to “turn over the” – globalist banksters’ – “money changers’ tables” again.

    But what we don’t need is more funding into the eugenics / genetics beliefs of the scientific fraud based “mental health” industries. For God sakes, we have already medically proven the iatrogenic etiology of the two most serious DSM “mental illnesses.” And love, and true justice, cures / prevents depression, not pharmaceuticals.

    Thank you as always, Peter, for your honest reporting.

  • Thank you, Jenny, for pointing out that Open Dialogue is a decent alternative to today’s scientific fraud based, “invalid,” psychiatric DSM “bible” theology. And I agree, other options “to bring about the urgently needed changes in the mental healthcare system,” are needed.

    As an initially non-DSM “bible” educated – now a DSM aware, but non-DSM “bible” believing – artist, who found solace and healing in the visual arts. I do highly recommend the non-DSM stigmatizing visual arts, as therapy.

    As one who also learned about the culinary arts, first hand, through a brother who studied that; I also found studying and participating in the culinary arts, to be beneficial.

    I also found maintaining a regular exercise routine, and spending time in nature, like biking, hiking, and the art and science of gardening, very healing endeavors.

    I also found keeping a journal, while researching for medical truth, then sharing my medical research findings – which did point out medical proof of the iatrogenic etiology of the “sacred symbol of psychiatry” – on MiA; thus I also found the writing arts, to be very therapeutic.

    And as an artist, with an odd gift, of being able to tell the story of my life, and the awakening to my dreams, in the lyrics of music, and other art forms – as if my subconscious self has been functioning my entire life as some sort of muse for other artists within the “collective unconscious.” I am a big believer in the healing power of the musical arts, as well.

    For example, last night, as I was watching the 1990’s movie, “Mr. Holland’s Opus,” after a nice birthday dinner with my family. And as a woman, who has a beloved son named Cole. I’d recommend people, watch that movie. Pay particular attention to the song the music director dedicates to his son, named Cole. And the music teacher’s fight against the defunding of the arts. It is a good 1990’s movie, tear jerker for me – and one more song that sings out the truth about my love for my child, and children – but a great movie for anyone.

    Nonetheless, obviously I found participating in and enjoying the arts, in general, to be therapeutic – when it comes to healing from psychological and psychiatric torture, oppression, and proven malpractice.

    And there are those doctors and researchers who are now claiming the “fake news,” “fierce Pharma,” and the medical propaganda – that we are all living through right now, regarding Covid – has resulted in a “mass formation psychosis.” So we all may need healing from psychological and psychiatric oppression, lies, and propaganda now.

    Nonetheless, I propose – as a society – we start to re-fund the arts. I’m amazed at how creative the children I taught became, and how they literally learned to utilize the creative side of their brains, after being taught how to utilize that side of their brain. So I know arts education is important.

    And we should probably also start to defund the oppressive, psychosis creating, DSM “bible” believing industries / religions / industries, et al as well.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Toxidrome

    But in regards to the fiscally irresponsible, bailout needing, globalist banksters – who have funded all this miseducation of the American public. Well, suffice it to say, of course we need “the tables of the money changers” overturned again. Let’s pray the Triune God is in the process of doing that.

    Good news, though, now that I’ve got some of my work online, despite the fact most of it needs to be re-photo-documented properly. My work does seem to be getting at least a little attention from the NY and CA art watchers. Despite the fact that, right now, I’m merely a woman hanging out in the wilderness.

    Let’s hope that someday – only the “Spirit cooking” and “pedophile” artists’ work – which is what’s revered by the globalist “elite” currently running the American art industry – is not all that is remembered about our current American society. And that the work of the Spirit led, save the children artists’ work, is also considered valuable some day – in part because it visually documents the very reality of our very divided society.
