  • The reality is the US government was supposed to break up large oligopolies, like big Pharma, and neglected to do their job. And instead the FDA largely partnered with big Pharma, and the globalist banksters. Capitalism may work just fine, if our government officials actually did their jobs, instead of being bought out, and doing the opposite.

    And trust me, the globalist banksters’ have no “moral compasses.”

  • Forced treatment should be illegal. Especially given the fact that criminal doctors, like this now FBI convicted one who force treated me, are medically unnecessarily force treating innocent people for profit.

    And given the fact that the DSM is a book of scientifically “invalid” stigmatizations, if “minimizing stigma” is actually a goal, the DSM needs to be flushed.

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

    And given the fact that the psych drugs create the scary symptoms of the DSM disorders, via anticholinergic toxidrome.

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

    Force drugging people to make them psychotic – albeit profitable for the people doing the neurotoxic poisonings – is downright evil.

  • “Trials of antipsychotics, of course, have nearly always relied on placebo groups composed of patients abruptly withdrawn from such medication (or withdrawn over a seven-day period). Here is the moral foil for judging this practice: If a psychiatrist in everyday practice abruptly withdrew a chronic schizophrenia patient from antipsychotic medication, and then left that person untreated for weeks and months, that would be seen as malpractice. Yet, that very act of clinical malpractice stands at the heart of randomized controlled trials of antipsychotics, and everyone turns a blind eye to this fact and pretends the withdrawn group reflects the ‘untreated’ course of schizophrenia. The king, so to speak, is completely naked, and yet the psychiatric community, when reciting ‘evidence from double-blind, placebo-controlled, randomized trials,’ pretends that the king is dressed in resplendent scientific garb.”

    Thanks, as always Robert Whitaker, for your truth telling. And just a reminder to all those unethical and/or too stupid psychiatrists or doctors, who forgot what they all were taught in med school. That both the antidepressants and antipsychotics can create “psychosis,” via anticholinergic toxidrome.

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

    Let’s hope and pray those unethical and/or too stupid doctors all some day wake up to the concept of ethics, and remember they first and foremost promised to “do no harm.”

  • Beautifully stated, Barry. And I really hope the US will follow suit, too.

    But trust me, only a few years ago a US psychologist literally tried to steal everything from widows in his church (my mother and I. I’m an independent psychopharmacological researcher, psych survivor, critical psychiatry and psychology activist, history recording visual artist, writer, prior to Covid a very active volunteer, and other careers and jobs to pay the bills) because that psychologist wanted to “maintain the status quo.”

    So definitely “the U.S. is lagging far behind the U.K. in these matters,” and many within the US “mental health” industries don’t want to change, and to have their egregious crimes exposed. But the psychological and psychiatric industries’, and my childhood religion’s – “dirty little secret of the two original educated profession’s” – systemic crimes have already been exposed, by many people online.

    But I’m personally very grateful for all the US, British, and other Europeans, speaking out about these societal problems. Since it seems to be clear that about half the Americans, understand that our country is most definitely under a severe corporate attack from within, and it’s controlled by the wrong people and philosophies.

    Let’s hope and pray for real change. I do see some hope that some are trying to bring about real US constitutional based change, and I’m grateful for them as well, but I’m not certain they’ll be successful, since they’re being so censored.

    https://www.brighteon.com/7af54f8a-d3d1-433c-aa17-8bea61e2f619

    Let’s hope and pray the American constitution can, once again, get rid of the satanic systems we moved away from Europe to get away from. And hopefully the decent and intelligent Americans can help to save the rest of the world as well.

    To MiA, just an FYI, the link to the full BMA Report is no longer working.

  • It is true that “Conflicts of Interest in Medical Commentaries Undermine Credibility of Major [medical] Journals.” And since the medical doctors are only as credible as the sources of their information, this lack of credibility of the doctors’ sources of information has, no doubt, tarnished the credibility of the medical profession.

    “They end by insisting that these concerns are not new and that they still exist is regrettable and rightly undermines confidence in medical research and publications,” and the entire medical profession.

  • “There is no one size fits all answer to the question of how to perform mental health assessments during a pandemic ethically.”

    What does ethics have to do with performing “mental health assessments,” at all, ever? Given the fact that the entire psychiatric DSM “bible” – and all the “disorders” within it – are scientifically “invalid.”

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

  • Beautifully stated, Karen. And I completely agree, my “bipolar” drug withdrawal induced “super sensitivity manic psychoses” merely functioned as a continuation of a spiritual journey (I was initially misdiagnosed by a Lutheran DSM believing psychologist, because I believed in the Holy Spirit, and she wanted to cover up the abuse of my child, for her pastor. Which I eventually learned from her medical records, and my child’s medical records being handed over).

    And this is a systemic, and by DSM design, “dirty little secret of the two original educated professions” societal problem. Since my ELCA Lutheran Social Service workers are DSM “bible” billers, and “partners” with their ELCA employers.

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

    My 2006 and 2009 drug withdrawal induced “super sensitivity manic psychoses” also functioned as an awakening to my dreams. They were actually an amazingly serendipitous experience, and basically helped to equate my subconscious (dreaming) and conscious (awake) selves. And it ended with a 2009 ‘born again’ type experience. Which, as a Christian, was fine with me – but NOT fine with my 2006 and still, ELCA hospital employed, non-Christian psychiatrist, nor her non-Christian, 2016 FBI convicted, “partner.”

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

    But it was kind-of funny, too, since during my 2006 awakening many of my friends and neighbors kept telling me “we’re living the dream.” And that’s what my awakening felt like – “living the dream.” Plus an ethical pastor, of a different religion, even confessed to me in 2010 that “some people can’t pray in private.”

    “Russian Roulette is not the same without a gun,” (my ex-pastor is a Russian) and “The great escape” were playing on the radio, back during my escape. For some odd reason I can tell my entire life’s story in music lyrics, as if my subconscious self is a muse for musicians.

    And since I escaped, songs such as “What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger” and “You’re going to hear me roar” became popular. And I do so hope they some day hear us critical psychiatry / independent psychopharmacological researchers, roar. At least it appears that the UN, the WHO, the former head of the NIMH, and some others, have heard us.

    But if – according to my 2009 Chicago awakening – “the tailor who sings with the Lord,” (I used to work retail next to a Lord and Taylor store in Chicago, that’s now an American Girl store) who in reality “is just an American girl,” can escape psychiatry’s iatrogenic bipolar epidemic, so can you.

    God bless you on your healing journey, Karin.

    And I do so hope at some point the “mental health professionals” will some day garner insight into the fact that when artists are working on their portfolios, it may appear as if they’re “unemployed,” but we’re working on our history recording portfolios. Because it does seem that psychologists and psychiatrists attack a lot of us visual artists.

    And I know my childhood religion does NOT financially support their visual artists. They have empty walls in their 150 year old churches, while they fraudulently market themselves as a religion that supports the “arts.”

    And my childhood church even had a 2017 call for visual artists to create visual arts to describe the “Trinity.” Then they didn’t even purchase, and hang on their walls, any of the visual arts they had requested be created, to glorify their beautiful 150 year old church. At least not prior to the 2019 Covid crisis … I haven’t been back there since then.

    And I likely will not return, due to the ladies in my childhood church confessing to me their religion’s faustian “partnership,” with the systemic child abuse covering up DSM “bible” believers.

    But let’s hope and pray we may some day return to a society where “What We Have Always Known but Psychiatry Forgot,” is respected, revered, and reinstated, as important. And psychiatry’s undeserved “right” to play judge, jury, and executioner – to anyone who disagrees with their DSM “bible” theology – is ended.

  • “’Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States…’ The phrase ‘having been duly convicted’ refers to the 5th Amendment guarantee that no person ‘be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law…’”

    America’s legal and judicial industries today are actively working towards the opposite of these goals. I was told by multiple Kane county IL lawyers, in 2010 or 2011 – lawyers who refused to represent me – because “all the Kane county judges are bought out by the banks.”

    And I have legal proof in my financial records that since Wells Fargo – a largely societally known criminal bank – did attempt to steal my home, via a fraudulent foreclosure, without having either the note, the date of the assignment of my home to Wells Fargo, nor my current mortgage. Which did make Wells Fargo’s fraudulent foreclosure and attempt to steal my home illegal. And I was also eventually sent the proof – from the mortgage company with whom I’d refinanced – that they still had my refinanced mortgage papers, after I’d sold my home.

    “That concept is reiterated in the 14th Amendment. ‘ No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.’”

    But this is exactly what happened to me, and I think, millions of American homeowners. Especially those of us women who were misdiagnosed with the “invalid” DSM disorders, by our systemic child abuse covering up paternalistic religions.

    “Many civil rights advocates question the constitutionality of conservatorship as currently practiced.”

    I did go to a police officer, explain the criminality of a conservatorship contract to that police officer after being handed one, by a child abuse covering up psychologist. I guess I’m one of those civil rights advocates, because I did question whether such a blatant thievery contract was even legal.

    “Conservatorship is the only business that gives service providers absolute control over the client and the client’s assets. Only a conservator can use a client’s assets to oppose the rights and wishes of the client. Only a conservator can use a client’s assets to litigate against the client and against the client’s family. Only a CAC can bill for legal services that serve no purpose but to increase billable hours.”

    Thankfully I knew enough to NOT sign that satanic conservatorship contract. But the cop did NOT arrest the attempted thief, who handed me that contract.

    “My mother’s million-dollar estate was largely depleted by her three-year conservatorship.” A three year conservatorship contract is what I was handed, so that does seem to be what these criminals do consider to be the minimum they must hand over, to steal from those of us who have minimal millions.

    “Conservatorship is nearly always a life sentence unless the estate is depleted during the life of the conservatee. After a wealthy conservatee dies, conservators and attorneys often continue litigating over distribution of the estate. Some families report a decade or more of court involvement in the estate, leaving meager distributions for legitimate heirs.”

    Yes, we have psychological, psychiatric, legal, pastoral, systemic criminal attempted thievery from the masses by the criminal “professional” classes, via the conservatorship contracts.

    “Predation is unavoidable when conservators and attorneys have unfettered access to the wealth of America’s ‘Greatest Generation.'”

    Yes, the information age is being used to steal from the younger generations.

    “While predators liquidate their estates, conservatees often endure isolation from loved ones, forced sedation, emotional and physical abuse.”

    Thankfully, I knew enough about reading a contract, prior to signing it, to NOT sign a conservatorship contract. But I will say the disingenuous psychological and psychiatric industries’ utilization of such contracts – to cover up their systemic malpractice – is truly disgusting.

    “Any American, regardless of mental capacity, can find themselves ensnared in the ‘legal-industrial system’ of conservatorship.” Especially since the psychologists are disingenuously handing these contracts out under the guise of “art manager” contracts, and are “partners” with the paternalistic religions.

    “Given courts that apply ‘all the procedural rigor of processing a traffic ticket,’ a few unsubstantiated allegations can condemn a person to ‘civil death.’ We must thank Britney Spears for her courage to publicly share her story and draw America’s attention to one of our most shameful institutions.”

    I do thank Brittany Spears for speaking out against these systemic legal and judicial crimes. And I do thank God that I was not unwise enough to sign one of these systemic satanic contracts.

  • “We propose that schizophrenic experience might be understood as arising from a dialectic relation between the self’s loss of openness to the world and the world’s loss of openness to the self.”

    My psychologist believed that having my innocent baby denied a baptism three times, at the exact same time as the World Trade center buildings were falling, was distress caused by a “chemical imbalance” in my brain alone. Unfortunately my psychologist didn’t explain her odd belief system to me, until I was picking up her medical records.

    This “holistic Christian talk therapist” proceeded to misdiagnose a common symptom of antidepressant discontinuation syndrome (“brain zaps”), worsened by a dirty opioid, as “bipolar.” She also claimed, in her medical records only, that a dream about being moved by the Holy Spirit was a “Holy Spirit voice,” and proof of “psychosis.” Actually, that’s blasphemy of the Holy Spirit, and the only unforgivable sin in the entire Holy Bible.

    But I will say the traumatic events of that morning did destroy my trust in – “openness to”- my childhood religion (although it did not destroy my belief in the Triune God). And the traumatic events of 9/11/2001 were distressing to me, as a former New Yorker. However, I do think most of the rest of the world was distressed by 9/11/2001, too. And I’m quite positive the worldwide distress of that distressing day had less than zero to do with a “chemical imbalance” in my brain alone.

    And once I’d read my psychologist’s medical records, and my family’s medical records, I learned my psychologist was actually a manic lunatic who’d gotten all her misinformation about me from pedophiles and her, what I consider to be a spiritual child abusing, pastor. It has since been confessed to me that the entirety of my childhood religion has “partnered with” the DSM “bible” billers, and the DSM “bible” billers apparently function as the systemic child abuse covering up arm of my childhood religion.

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

    Which means that the so called “delusional religious conspiracy,” that my psychologist fraudulently accused me of knowing something about, is actually a systemic medical / religious “conspiracy.” And it is a medical / religious “conspiracy” with a name, according to an ethical pastor of a different religion, who called it “the dirty little secret of the two original educated professions.”

    “The authors oppose more individualistic frameworks that put the onus of both development and recovery on the ‘sick’ person.”

    I agree. Especially given the fact that the “schizophrenia treatments,” the antipsychotics / neuroleptics, can create “psychosis” via anticholinergic toxidrome. And they can also create the negative symptoms of “schizophrenia,” via neuroleptic induced deficit syndrome. Which would imply “schizophrenia” is likely largely an iatrogenic, not “genetic” illness, that can be created with the “gold standard treatments.”

    “The authors first argue that in ‘trigger situations’—those situations which can lead to the onset of schizophrenic experiences—there is often a ‘closing down of the world’ for the person.”

    Yes, I did somewhat feel like there was a ‘closing down of the world’ – or a destruction of the world I knew – on the morning of 9/11/2001. Given that morning was a destruction of my trust in my childhood religion, and a destruction of the city I grew up near. Although, in my case, my “psychosis” did not happen until after I’d been anticholinergic toxidrome poisoned months later, not right after 9/11/2001.

    “Among the modes of treatment that they deem to reinforce the ‘closing down’ of the person’s world, which they again believe constitutes a major element of schizophrenic experiences, are ‘closed wards, diagnostic labeling (with the associated phenomenon of stigma), and coercive treatment.'”

    Absolutely true. Stealing one’s freedom, defaming people with scientifically “invalid” disorders, and force neurotoxic poisoning people is 100% the opposite of helping someone.

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

    “one recurring motive of professionals’ therapeutic stance towards persons with psychosis might be the capacity to empathize with psychotic experiences or even to consider them as one’s own existential possibility.”

    The problem is that after the psychiatrist I was shipped to anticholinergic toxidrome poisoned me, and made me “psychotic,” my psychiatrist told me to ignore the “voices” that he had created. And never once did he consider the “voices” as relating to my real life concern for my abused child, which they did. Nor did my “holistic Christian talk therapist” or psychiatrist consider my Spiritual dream to possibly relate to “one’s own existential possibility,” or as part of a possible Spiritual journey, as it seemed to me.

    “the loss of dialogical connection to the social world that persons with schizophrenia experience are still and all too often mirrored by society’s loss of dialogue with them.”

    My psychologist and psychiatrist defamed me to my family, but not my friends, so thankfully I did not experience a “loss of dialogue” with my friends. And since anticholinergic toxidrome makes one “hyperactive,” not “inactive,” I did stay very busy working with my friends. But, of course, my psychologist’s and psychiatrist’s misdiagnosis and defamation of me to my family did destroy my marriage, was taxing on my other familial relations for many years, and did make speaking to – or taking the advise of – my psychologist and psychiatrist “irrelevant to reality” for me.

    I do agree Open Dialogue would be a much better paradigm, the “invalid” DSM billing code “bible” should be flushed, and forced and/or coerced medical treatment of any kind should be outlawed.

  • “My rationale for seeking legal advice was that this is a systemic issue requiring further investigation so that valid concerns about other children in similar situations could be raised without fear of dismissal.”

    Yes, this is a systemic problem – and part of why I chose to NOT become a DSM “bible” believing art therapist. But it is a systemic problem with likely many of the mainstream religions, not just the Catholics. An ethical pastor – of a religion other than my childhood religion – confessed this type of systemic child abuse covering up problem to be “the dirty little secret of the two original educated professions.” And some of my childhood religion’s bishops are now systemic child abuse cover uppers, even according to the insiders in their main synod offices.

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

    “It’s this interesting combination of knowledge, this cross-disciplinary approach, that gives me a firm basis of knowing that art, anything that’s made by hand, holds vast treasure troves of connections and connectivity and history, both personal and cultural.”

    I agree, “art, anything that’s made by hand, holds vast treasure troves of connections and connectivity and history, both personal and cultural.” Those of us who did attend one of the number one rated art schools in the US were taught to record history.

    And as it turned out – based upon many others’, and my psychopharmacological research – my personal concern of the abuse of my child, and the medical/religious cover up of such, does absolutely relate to systemic cultural pedophilia, and apparently also child sex trafficking, problems.

    https://medicalkidnap.com/2018/08/05/america-1-in-child-sex-trafficking-and-pedophilia-cps-and-foster-care-are-the-pipelines/

    We do need to end “the dirty little secret of the two original educated professions.” And covering up child abuse for the mainstream religions, has apparently long been the primary actual societal function of their scientifically “invalid” DSM “bible” billing “mental health” “partners.” And it’s all by DSM design.

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

    Let’s hope and pray we may end these systemic societal problems. But this would require the men of our society to garner insight into the fact that raping our children is unacceptable human behavior. It would require the doctors, pastors, bishops, police, lawyers, and judges to garner insight into the fact that systemically covering up child abuse for profit is unacceptable human behavior. And it would require our societies’ governments, et al, to start actually arresting, convicting, and punishing the child molesters.

    Thank you for your insightful and truth speaking story, Karen. And, my oh my, I do so know about their desire to dismiss, ignore, silence, and outright attempt to steal our truth telling stories and “too truthful” artwork.

  • No justice in America today. Upside down and backwards, America. Gosh, I painted that painting 16 years ago – after being unable to find a lawyer to sue doctors who committed easily recognized malpractice – and covered up their malpractice by prescribing a ‘safe pain killer’ (‘dirty opioid’) and ‘safe smoking cessation med’ (mind altering antidepressant), et al.

    And next to no doctor I dealt with, in America, for the past several decades was supposedly aware of the mind altering effects of the opioids or antidepressants. Thankfully the head of family medicine at the Cleveland Clinic had a brain in his head, understood what anticholinergic toxidrome was, and had me teach his students. Although he’s no longer at that hospital.

    But is there still any question that America has a “just us” legal system, not a “just” common law system today? Did I use those terms correctly? I’m still trying to understand the criminality of today’s US legal system.

    http://annavonreitz.com

    Nonetheless, ‘Catastrophic Injustice’ is unacceptable. What happened to my family was recently silenced by a female writer, after she admitted I’d dealt with ‘extreme abuse of power.’ But what she seemingly didn’t understand is these are systemic problems in America today, ‘extreme abuse of’ almost all Americans, not just my family, so silencing me was unwise.

    We need a return to common decency and the rule of law in America today. We do not need a legal system that only protects the wealthy and criminal drug dealers, doctors, lawyers, pastors, bishops, government officials, bankers, and pedophiles. But that’s what America currently has.

    Pardon my disgust at the ‘Catastrophic Injustice’ going on in America today.

  • Thank you for reporting on this healing home, Amy. Most definitely ‘being human’ – gardening, healthy eating, regular moderate exercising, creating, journaling, and love – are the ways to healing. The psych drugs just create the symptoms of the psychiatrists’ ‘invalid’ DSM disorders.

    https://www.amazon.com/Anatomy-Epidemic-Bullets-Psychiatric-Astonishing-ebook/dp/B0036S4EGE
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Toxidrome
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Neuroleptic-induced_deficit_syndrome

    Let’s hope funding for such healing homes becomes available, given such places are less than half as expensive as psychiatry’s “treatments,” and are not harmful.

    “As it stands, the cost runs $533.33 per day and $192,000 for the full year, with tuition tapering down as the months pass. Health plans typically won’t cover much or any of it, even though — according to one 2016 study — the daily cost is a little less than half that of the average psych hospitalization.”

    I personally had 2 1/2 weeks of psych “snowing” charged to my private health insurance company at $30,000. That would be $624,000 a year, that the psychiatric “snowing” partner of this now FBI convicted doctor:

    https://www.justice.gov/usao-ndil/pr/oak-brook-doctor-sentenced-two-years-prison-connection-kickback-scheme-sacred-heart

    had hoped to charge to my insurance company, annually. Thankfully, my private health insurance company said no.

    But most definitely, programs like what are being run at Grace Brook are much less expensive, and more helpful, than what today’s psychiatric and psychological industries are currently offering and promoting.

  • “The Sins of Conservatorship: Why Britney Spears Compared It to Slavery”

    I was handed one of these contracts, under the disingenuous guise of an “art manager” contract, by a Lutheran psychologist, who wanted to cover up a prior Lutheran psychologist’s malpractice.

    And the contract was appalling. These are literally slavery contracts, and they should be illegal. But they’re not. I explained how appalling the contract I was given to a cop. He said he’d file a police report, but told me such contracts are NOT illegal. They should be illegal, they are slavery contracts.

  • You’re not alone, evergreen, but I felt that way too, when I was trying to escape ‘the system.’ I’m glad you found MiA, it didn’t exist back when I was trying to escape.

    I don’t know if this would help you find someone to help wean your son off the Olanzapine, but if you go to the ‘Drugs’ tab at the top of the page. Click on it, and you’ll see a ‘Provider Directory’ option, click that. Maybe you can find a local doctor or organization that may help you get your son weaned from the drug.

    Some of the things that seemed to help convince my psychiatrist to wean me from the drugs – I think – were that I kept very, very busy volunteering, I was ‘prolifically’ working on an art portfolio, I did a lot of journal writing, I refused to stop exercising, I refused to give up on my activities, myself, and my children.

    And as a mom, probably the best thing you can do is to encourage and show love to your son. Get him volunteering somewhere, if he’s not already, encourage him to keep a journal, and calendar notes. In my case, doing art, working in my yard, biking, rehabbing my home. Keeping very busy both helped me, and likely reminded my psychiatrist I was a productive human being, not worthy of being massively neurotoxic poisoned.

    But I will say, complaining about the psych drugs doesn’t win a lot of points with the psychiatrists. Gentle encouragement to wean one off the drugs, works better than demands.

    And I will mention, I was poly drugged, so drugged much worse than your son. Resulting in anticholinergic toxidrome poisoning, which does make one ‘hyperactive,’ as opposed to inactive. But the neuroleptics can also make a person ‘inactive,’ via neuroleptic induced deficit syndrome. And I don’t know your son’s symptoms.

    I hope my sharing my experience and research helps at least a little, reminds you that you’re not alone, and helps you and your son to maintain hope. Your son can heal. Keep the faith and God bless.

  • That’s largely how I was weaned off the antipsychotics – over 2 1/2 years, and only seeing my psychiatrist between 2-4 times a year. But this was due to scheduling difficulties, more so than insight on my psychiatrist’s part.

    I did still experience, actually two, drug withdrawal induced super sensitivity manic psychoses, but they were not bothersome to me.

    I had tons of energy, they functioned as an awakening to my dreams, and they were staggeringly serendipitous. They were kind of like good mushroom trips, that lasted three months each, albeit with a spiritual angle.

    I will say my first super sensitivity manic psychosis happened about 6 months after being weaned off lithium, but a full two years after I’d been taken off the last antipsychotic, which that psychiatrist prescribed.

    And my second super sensitivity manic psychosis happened about 2 years after being weaned from Depakote. And 2 1/2 years after being “snowed” in a hospital, then weaned off an antipsychotic.

    So I would imagine the psychiatrists and psychologists are underestimating how much after being weaned from the psych drugs, one can deal with a drug withdrawal induced super sensitivity manic psychosis.

    I absolutely agree, however, no one should ever be forced or coerced to take the antipsychotics. Especially since the antipsychotics can make a person “psychotic,” but in a really bad way, via anticholinergic toxidrome.

  • “while there were differences in the way [clinical psychologists] viewed psychosis, all gave clients a place to explore their symptoms in the context of their lives.” My US “holistic Christian” clinical psychologist thought that a dream about being moved by the Holy Spirit was “a Holy Spirit voice,” and proof of “psychosis,” according to her medical records.

    And she most definitely did NOT give me “a place to explore” my real life concerns “in the context of” my life. Quite to the contrary, she ignored and denied my real life concerns. And she demanded I be neurotoxic poisoned (anticholinergic toxidrome) by her psychiatrist friend. This poisoning did make me “psychotic.”

    My so called “psychosis” was all about a spiritual journey, and being awakened to the fact my child had been sexually assaulted, medical evidence of which was eventually handed over. And covering up child abuse does seem to be a systemic problem of both the psychologists and psychiatrists. Not to mention likely many of the DSM “bible” billers, given this is a systemic problem with the DSM.

    According to my psychologist’s medical records, she covered up child abuse for her pastor. And this too is a systemic “dirty little secret of the two original educated professions” problem, which has turned the bishops of my childhood religion into systemic child abuse cover uppers too.

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

    Thankfully my psychiatrist did eventually wean me off his neurotoxins. And I did eventually find an ethical pastor of a different religion, who said a dream about being moved by the Holy Spirit merely means that I am moved by the Holy Spirit. My drug withdrawal induced super sensitivity manic “psychosis” did ultimately culminate in a “born again” type experience. And as a Christian, I am fine with being born again.

    So indeed, sometimes what gets called “psychosis” is merely a dream and a spiritual matter, which is not remotely bothersome to the person, at least once she understands the meaning of the powerful dream. I will say, however, the anticholinergic toxidrome induced “psychosis” was quite disgusting.

    I do agree that the “medicalizing approach [is] detrimental to trust.” But sometimes understanding that psychologists should not be trusted is a good thing. When a second Lutheran psychologist handed me a sick, twisted conservatorship contract – under the disingenuous guise of an “art manager” contract – I knew signing his contract, and trusting that attempted thief, would be unwise behavior.

    Let’s hope some day the US psychologists wake up, and garner insight into the fact it’s illegal to behave like child abuse covering up, thieving, and attempted thieving criminals. And let’s hope the US starts actually arresting the pedophiles and thieves some day.

    Since, for goodness sakes, right now we’re all living in a “pedophile empire,” where child sex trafficking is running amok.

  • “Roxanne Stewart[‘s] achievement in being accorded formal refugee status on the basis of psychiatric persecution might be just such a catalyst. This is the way legal progress is made; small steps towards ultimate victory. Let’s hope this will be the case here.”

    Let’s hope so, and thanks for sharing both her triumphant story, and your legal “realist” perspective, Jim. And as one who was psychiatrically drugged, to cover up the abuse of my child, based upon lies of a Lutheran pastor, according to my medical records. And as one who now knows covering up child abuse is the number one actual function of both the paternalistic psychological and psychiatric industries, and their systemic child abuse covering up religious “partners.”

    I do so hope at some point to see an end of this “dirty little secret of the two original educated professions.”

    Since there is no actual legally or societally acceptable need for a scientific fraud based, systemic child abuse covering up, group of “mental health” workers. Our society is not best served by having systemic child abuse covering up psychologists and psychiatrists. But all of these systemic “mental health” child abuse covering up crimes are 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

    The child molesters should be arrested instead. Society does not need systemic child abuse covering up psychologists or psychiatrists. We need a return to the rule of law instead. Since covering up child abuse is illegal, even if done by and for the religions, or individual families.

  • “The problem is that there is no proof at this day that neurology and genetic is involved (in a causal way) in mental/emotional suffering.”

    Absolutely, and since we have the medical proof that the symptoms of the two “most serious” DSM disorders can be created with the psych drugs, we do have the real science, proving the scientific fraud of psychiatry, on our side.

    “Ergo, there is no place for psychiatrists in the care of those suffering.” I totally agree, especially since the psychiatric industries are apparently murdering “8 million” innocent, non-criminal, people EVERY year.

    https://www.nimh.nih.gov/about/directors/thomas-insel/blog/2015/mortality-and-mental-disorders?wpmobileexternal=true

    But I will say, wow! Our media organizations and/or government are now seemingly deleting all our publicly funded research findings, and the confessions of the former head of NIMH, that I regularly quote. This is a major censorship problem.

  • I’m so glad Brittany is speaking out. I read the guardianship contract I was given, under a disingenuous guise, and I was staggeringly appalled. It was so horrendous, I didn’t even need to take it to my lawyer to read. And I filed a complaint against the psychologist who gave it to me, at my local police department. These type contracts really should be illegal.

  • “With so many potentially contributing factors of such different natures – e.g., genes, neuronal specificities, (childhood) trauma’s, social and economical disadvantages, existential worries – one of the holy grails in psychiatry is to get clear about how to relate these factors and assess their precise roles. What influences what? What is cause, and what is effect?”

    Psychiatry doesn’t care about etiologies of distress, especially when it comes to child abuse.

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

    Quite to the contrary, if they want to get paid, they must misdiagnose all child abuse survivors with the other billable DSM disorders.

    I agree, “all symptoms of psychiatric disorders can be traced back to abnormalities in the brain.”

    Psychiatry’s problem is that their ADHD drugs and antidepressants can create “abnormalities in the brain” or symptoms that look like the “bipolar” symptoms to the “mental health” workers. And the antipsychotics/neuroleptics can create symptoms that look like the positive and negative symptoms of “schizophrenia,” via anticholinergic toxidrome and neuroleptic induced deficit syndrome.

    “The author explains that their biggest downside is preferring only one type of factor, citing that clear genetic and neuronal causes for psychiatric disorders have still not been established. Additionally, it is difficult to address personal ‘meaning’ if a ‘neuroreductionist’ model is embraced above all else.”

    Very true, but dismissing a client’s real life concerns and “personal ‘meaning'” does seem to be the very point of defaming people with the DSM disorders. The supposed “life long, incurable, genetic” DSM disorder becomes the problem, rather than the person’s actual concerns being addressed.

    “In contrast, more holistic models, such as the bio-psycho-social model, account for multiple factors that contribute to mental distress, not just those at the neural level.”

    But the problem lies in the fact that even those who call themselves “holistic, Christian talk therapists” are required to defame people with the “invalid” DSM disorders, in order to get paid.

    And, at least in my ex-religion, those “holistic, Christian talk therapists” are “partnered with” the religions. So instead of working for the person paying them, the “holistic, Christian talk therapists” function as the child abuse covering up arm of the religion.

    Ultimately leading to the bishops of such a religion also becoming systemic child abuse cover uppers, too.

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

    Oh, I guess we can go further. Since all this systemic child abuse covering up by psychologists, psychiatrists, pastors, and bishops also functions to aid, abet, and empower the pedophiles and child sex traffickers. This has left us all living in a “pedophile empire,” with child sex trafficking running amok.

    https://medicalkidnap.com/2018/08/05/america-1-in-child-sex-trafficking-and-pedophilia-cps-and-foster-care-are-the-pipelines/

    This systemic problem is known as “the dirty little secret of the two original educated professions,” according to an ethical pastor of a different religion. We truly need psychologists, psychiatrists, pastors, and bishops to get out of the child abuse covering up and profiteering business. And we need the police to start arresting the pedophiles.

  • “Ethnic and racial minority woman may benefit from greater efficacy-through-social attachments,…”

    I’m quite certain this is true for white women, too. Which is why I ignored my insane – what I eventually learned was a child abuse covering up – white female psychologist’s bad advice to “quit all your activities, and concentrate on the meds.”

    Covering up child abuse and rape is a systemic problem for the psychological and psychiatric professions, I later learned. And I was proactively attacked by “mental health” workers, because I’m the mother of a child abuse survivor. The medical evidence of the abuse of my child was eventually handed over.

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

    And an ELCA synod offices insider even wrote a book, because he was seemingly almost as appalled as I, that the paternalistic ELCA had “partnered with” the DSM “bible” worshippers. And the DSM “bible” worshippers were functioning as the child abuse covering up arm of the ELCA religion, which has turned ELCA bishops into systemic child abuse and rape cover uppers, too.

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

    We do need to challenge “some psychotherapy approaches and other psychological interventions that focus on individual forms of coping and alleviating distress,” not to mention the psychiatric interventions “that focus on individual forms of coping and alleviating distress.”

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

    I’m not quite certain what the definition of “communal mastery” is, but would imagine it basically means getting along well with most others within your community? Which I did, so my psychiatrist eventually, according to his medical records, concluded I’d been misdiagnosed by my non-medically trained psychologist, which is now medically provable, so he weaned me off his drugs.

    “Although coping with trauma is important, it is also necessary to address the social factors that lead to a traumatic experience to prevent PTSD and complex trauma, increase well-being and quality of life, and promote social justice.”

    And given the fact that “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).”

    We do also need psychologists and psychiatrists to stop misdiagnosing child abuse or concerns of child abuse as ALL the “invalid” DSM disorders.

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

    Our society should also start to arrest the child molesters, “to address the social factors that lead to a traumatic experience.” And if you think this is not an enormous societal problem, it is.

  • One would think that the ‘Ministry of Health officials’ would know by now, that both the antidepressants and antipsychotics can create ‘psychosis,’ via anticholinergic toxidrome.

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

    Thus the dramatic increase in these drug classes use, will only increase the number of ‘psychotic’ people. Which is a negative for those who ‘are getting support,’ since most people don’t want to be made ‘psychotic.’ Making someone ‘psychotic’ with drugs is pretty much the opposite of “getting support.”

    “Q. WHAT ARE THE POLICY IMPLICATIONS OF THIS FINDING?

    A. ….Implication:” We need to decrease the use of drug classes that can make people ‘psychotic.’

  • Given the fact that the psychological profession has been denying and covering up child abuse for a very long time.

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

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

    Which means that psychologists and psychiatrists have been misdiagnosing child abuse survivors, with the other DSM disorders, on a massive societal scale.

    Given this staggering betrayal of child abuse survivors – by both the psychological and psychiatric industries. I feel our society should find people – who are NOT psychologists or psychiatrists or other DSM “bible” believers – to help the child abuse survivors.

    Especially since the DSM “bible” billers can’t bill to help child abuse survivors, unless they first misdiagnosed them with one of the billable DSM disorders.

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

    And, of course, these misdiagnoses distract from the real issue at hand. Especially if the person is prescribed the psychiatric neurotoxins.

    In the words of my oral surgeon, “antipsychotics do not cure concerns of child abuse.” Absolutely they do not.

    But both the antidepressants and antipsychotics can create “psychosis,” via anticholinergic toxidrome. And the antipsychotics can also create the negative symptoms of “schizophrenia,” via neuroleptic induced deficit syndrome.

    And all this misdiagnosis of child abuse survivors, and their legitimately concerned parents, does also function to aid, abet, and empower the pedophiles and human traffickers. So we’re now all living in a “pedophile empire,” with child sex trafficking running amok.

    I’m quite certain we’d have a much better world if psychologists, psychiatrists, CPS, et al got out of the child abuse denying and covering up business, and we started actually arresting the pedophiles and human traffickers.

  • Indeed, Fiachra, at least when it comes to the psych drugs…

    The ADHD drugs and antidepressants can create the “bipolar” symptoms.

    https://www.alternet.org/2010/04/are_prozac_and_other_psychiatric_drugs_causing_
    the_astonishing_rise_of_mental_illness_in_america/

    The antidepressants and antipsychotics can create “psychosis,” and other positive symptoms of “schizophrenia,” via anticholinergic toxidrome.

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

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

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

    And I agree, KateL, lawsuits are long past due for the epidemics caused by the psych drugs. The problem seems to be that the psychiatrists and psychologists are the cover uppers for the “elite” child abuse, pedophilia, human trafficking, et al criminals.

    And just like I was told by numerous lawyers, when dealing with a criminal bank, “the Kane county judges are all bought out by the banks.” The same is true of the lawyers and judges – and seemingly even our government officials – when it comes to the pharmaceutical industry.

  • Indeed there is an “inability to see a counselor without being pathologized, per the DSM,” including when one pays cash.

    But I will say, paying cash does prevent one’s health insurance company from knowing about such maltreatment. Thus one’s unknowing health insurance company will help one escape later on, when one is subjected to the downright criminal psychiatrists.

    What’s sad is, I’m now to the point of contemplating seeing a primary care physician, who only takes cash, too.

    I was able to get a well respected mainstream doctor into taking the psychiatric misdiagnosis off my medical records. He even had me teach his students about my medical research findings, and called me a “one in a million” medical researcher.

    But I did end up going to the emergency room, a couple years back, at his well respected hospital, with chest pains. I was right, it was just a pulled muscle, thankfully. But I was not able to walk out of that hospital, without a moronic “Dr. Paine” asking me “Are you depressed?”

    What’s good is if you tell such a Paine, “No, and I’m allergic to the anticholinergic drugs.” That Paine will walk away quickly, embarrassed.

    But we do seem to have a societal problem of a lack of medical privacy, if you utilize insurance. And especially now that the vaccinated supposedly don’t need to wear masks, but the unvaccinated do. I’m pretty certain such mandates are illegal, according to the Nuremberg codes.

  • markps2,

    Great analogy, Mark. I’m quite certain that story should be rewritten as a ‘Psychiatrist goes deaf’ story, especially given how many “mental health” workers I had to ask if they speak English. Those words, “your drug make me sick,” truly are beyond the realm of comprehension of most “mental health” workers, at least in my experience.

  • I’d like to set up a Soteria house in NE Ohio. Anyone else in my area interested? Sam …? I’m trying to currently educate a former chef about such a need, who might be interested. I do know of local doctors and Ohio lawyers, who may agree to help. Not to mention I have connections with local non-profit funders, who may have funding for such. Anyone else interested in possibly setting up a Soteria house in NE Ohio?

  • What a beautifully well written description of how you found your “fire” – strength – and recovered with hope and healing. I agree with you, trauma exists. But, like you, I don’t believe in the DSM “mental illnesses,” and the “mental health” industries’ systemic covering up of legitimate distress. And I’m glad your “fire” helped save you.

    The Methodists represent the Holy Spirit with a flame. And it was Methodists who helped save me from my Holy Spirit blaspheming Lutheran, systemic child abuse covering up, “mental health” workers.

    Let’s hope and pray the Triune God’s fair judgement of all will, in the long run, bring about a better society for all.

  • Yes, KateL, the psychologists who were calling themselves “holistic” decades ago, also behaved in the opposite manner. So if there is such a thing as a “holistic” psychologist or psychiatrist, they need to call themselves something else. Since the unethical within the “mental health” industries, long ago, destroyed the term “holistic,” when it comes to “mental health” workers.

  • But if you beat your fists on your chest for a couple minutes, to exemplify how sick such forced treatment makes you. Resulting in terrifying the twenty or so “mental health” workers who watched this forced treatment crime. Such that some state, “I’ve never seen such an adverse reaction to the meds.”

    And then if you ask “Does anyone here speak English?”

    You can embarrass the criminal foreign psychiatrist who forced treated you, after you said “your drugs make me sick.” And “it’s against my religion to take your drugs.” You can actually get some of the “mental health” workers to shyly raise their hand, and confess to being able to speak English.

    And one of those “mental health” workers even later forced me to take a Holy Bible, as if I didn’t already know the Holy Bible speaks out against Pharmakia.

  • As one who was drugged up for knowing 9.11.2001 – and the subsequent never ending wars – were a really dumb idea in 2001. By a psychologist and psychiatrists, who thought rational distress caused by 9.11.2001, was “distress caused by a chemical imbalance” in my brain alone. A staggeringly bizarre and insane belief system, I did not even know about, until picking up my medical records.

    But as an ethical American banker’s daughter, who knows “all wars are bankers’ wars,” and the globalist bankers’ banking system is based upon fraud.

    It’s a shame our government has bought into the fraud of the globalist banksters, and the fraud of the “mental health” industries. And has been harming our “heroes” of the military, based upon these systemic fraud based industries’ crimes, for seemingly over a century.

  • I agree with pretty much everything the executive director of the International Society for Ethical Psychology and Psychiatry said. Except …

    “At last estimated count, 95% of psychologists believe that the mind is an extension or epiphenomenon of the brain, which, for many practitioners and researchers, allows for no more unfettered alliances between psychologists and the medical model of reductionism.”

    I think this would be more clearly stated if “the medical model of reductionism” were replaced with “the psychiatric DSM ‘bible’.” Since the DSM billing code “bible” is basically the “bible” for those who believe in “the medical model of reductionism.”

    I also question whether it’s true that “95% of psychologists believe that the mind is an extension or epiphenomenon of the brain,” since all the psychologists have been utilizing the psychiatric DSM “bible” for billing, for decades. And they’ve been working hand and hand with psychiatry for decades, or longer, too.

    But I do agree, “The mind is not the brain, and difficulties in living or extreme experiences are not illnesses to be treated medically.” Especially when it comes to issues like ACEs (adverse childhood experiences), which both the psychologists and psychiatrists have been misdiagnosing, and inappropriately force drugging people to cover up, for decades. Or at least that’s what happened in my case, and it is a systemic problem.

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

    But what all this means is that the “International Society for Ethical Psychology and Psychiatry” should likely lose the “Psychiatry” part of that title. And the ethical psychiatrists should set up their own “International Society for Ethical Psychiatry.”

    While keeping in mind that the ADHD drugs and antidepressants can create the “bipolar” symptoms. The antidepressants and antipsychotics can create “psychosis,” via anticholinergic toxidrome. And the antipsychotics / neuroleptics can create the negative symptoms of “schizophrenia,” via neuroleptic induced deficit syndrome, as well. And creating “mental illnesses” in people with drugs is neither ethical, nor helpful to your clients, and it should be illegal.

    And they do try to tell us there are no such thing as “conspiracies,” but the definition of “conspiracy” merely is “an agreement by two or more persons to commit a crime, fraud, or other wrongful act.”

    And when both the psychiatric and psychological industries work together to systemically cover up child abuse, an illegal act, on a massive societal scale. Which is what has been happening for decades or longer, and it’s all 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

    We’re dealing with industries that are “conspiring” with other industries.

    And the ladies in my childhood church admitted that my childhood religion is in “partnership” with the “mental health” workers, as well. Which has turned the bishops of my childhood religion into systemic child abuse cover uppers, too.

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

    We need industries to stop “partnering with” or “conspiring” with other industries, against people, for profit.

  • I couldn’t agree more, Tabitha. The “mental health” industry needs to stop drugging child abuse survivors, and their legitimately concerned parents.

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

    And this is a problem for both the psychological and psychiatric industry. And don’t get me started on CPS and school social workers.

    The “mental health” industry “need to stop asking ‘What’s wrong?’ and start asking ‘What happened?’ because that’s when healing begins.”

    Sad to say, but once the medical evidence of the abuse of my child had been handed over, and I had the truth, everything made sense. “The truth shall set you free.” And that is when I walked away from my psychiatrist, since he believed the best way for a mother to help a healing child – who had been abused four years prior – was to neurotoxic poison him.

    Thankfully, I was able to keep my child away from the “mental health” and social workers. And he ended up graduating from university Phi Beta Kappa, as well as winning a psychology award. And thankfully he got his masters degree in something else.

    But I do agree, speaking out against child abuse does get you silenced and censored.

  • Thank you for sharing your story, Grace. It horrendous what the psychiatrists did to you, I’m very sorry. A similar thing happened to me, except I was eventually slowly weaned off the drugs. But I still had withdrawal effects.

    I will say, however, many of the withdrawal effects do subside with time, although perhaps not all of them. God bless on your healing journey. Have hope.

  • “The traits that he said determine a happy life—authenticity, playfulness, vivaciousness—did I have them?” I did, but the lunatic, systemic child abuse covering up, paternalistic “mental health” workers believe being a happy woman is being “manic” and “histrionic.”

    But I will say, Wow! As one who learned about cooking and a healthy diet, from living with one going through culinary training. I will say I’m literally shocked by all the bad nutritional advice you were given by the “mental health” workers.

    Although, I’m now to the point I understand those who call themselves “mental health professionals” are the enemies within our own countries. Who only give out bad medical, dietary, and exercise advice. Actually, I guess I learned that decades ago, so stopped listening to them long ago.

    But I’m glad both you and I escaped these supposedly “scientific” – but actually scientific fraud based – “mental health” lunatics. I’m sorry you were given such horrible brainwashing, lies, and advise, for so long, by these so called “mental health professionals.”

    Thanks for sharing your story, Charlotte.

  • No, “It’s not a pretty picture.” The corruption within industries is out of hand. Wasn’t it supposed to be the job of our governments to regulate these industries?

    I agree WebMD is a very poor source of accurate medical information, in general. But so, too, now is the Mayo Clinic. An example:

    https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/bipolar-disorder/diagnosis-treatment/drc-20355961

    Especially given the fact that every doctor was taught in med school that both the antidepressants and antipsychotics can create “psychosis,” via anticholinergic toxidrome.

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

  • “In their reflection of how the findings were discussed, the authors found that service users felt as if their lived experience was not valued or believed.”

    This is such a common problem with “mental health” workers that I think they many of them must have been taught to NOT listen to, or respect, their clients. Certainly none of them understand the words, “Your drugs make me sick.”

    And my primary psychiatrist actually wrote in his medical records “not believed by doctor,” after asking what was new. And I told him I was going to be co-chairing a 250+ volunteer strong school art program. But, I eventually learned, that psychiatrist had gotten all his misinformation about me, from people who did not know me – which should be illegal.

    After escaping that nut job psychiatrist, I literally had to ask another group of “mental health” workers, “Does anyone here speak English?” At least this was embarrassing for some of them.

    And the idiot psychologist who handed me that conservatorship contract, under the disingenuous “art manager” guise. I started out trying to be polite, and just said I couldn’t afford to hire an “art manager.” No seeming ability to understand this basic concept, from that psychologist.

    So after he asked me to sign it again, I explained that I had a business degree, in addition to the art degree. And I said one of the first things they teach you in business school is to never ever … ever, ever … ever, ever, ever … enter into a business contract with someone who wants to take a percentage of gross. That psychologist then lied and said, “It’s the only way.”

    His harassment went on and on and on. Finally, two years after he’d officially announced I would be his “artist of the year” for the prior year. He told me I couldn’t get the award, unless I signed the contract. I said, “Fine, let’s just forget about it.” To which he responded, “Oh good, then you’ll sign the contract.”

    All of which, of course, pissed me off. So I asked, “What is wrong with you? I’ve told you many times I’m not going to sign your thievery contract. Stop asking.” Then I went and filed a police report.

    It’s my theory “mental health” workers must have been taught in psychology school that if you ignore and/or dismiss everything a person says, the person you do this to might start believing it is they who has a problem.

    But no, it is looney – and in too many cases, downright criminal – “mental health” workers who are the problem. They just can’t seem to garner insight into the reality that their “bible” is “bullshit,” and their drugs are neurotoxins.

  • A wonderful synopsis of the systemic malpractice / crimes regularly being committed by DSM deluded psychiatrists and “holistic Christian talk therapists”/psychologists, Kendra.

    “… it’s like a runaway train.” No doubt, and this song was playing on the radio when I suffered from my Risperdal induced “first psychotic break” / struggle with God.

    ” … It seems no one can help me now
    I’m in too deep
    There’s no way out
    This time I have really lead myself astray

    Runaway train never going back
    Wrong way on a one-way track …”

    Most definitely I knew I’d been railroaded. I am one of the millions of innocent people who had the common withdrawal symptoms of an antidepressant, misdiagnosed as “bipolar.” So my “holist Christian talk therapist” could cover up the abuse of my child for her pastor and his pedophile “soul mate,” prior to my even knowing my child had been sexually assaulted (the medical evidence was eventually handed over).

    I totally agree, “conventional psychiatry will never actually be effective. Instead, it only perpetuates the very problems that it purports to treat.”

    Yes, those antipsychotics can create “psychosis,” via anticholinergic toxidrome; and they can create the negative symptoms of “schizophrenia,” via neuroleptic induced deficit syndrome, too.

    And it is very true that the psychological and psychiatric industries are systemic child abuse cover uppers.

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

    And their “partnership” with my childhood religion has turned the leaders of my former religion into systemic child abuse cover uppers, too.

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

    And we all now live in a “pedophile empire,” many thanks to the pedophile aiding, abetting, and empowering “mental health” industries.

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

    It now seems it’s our entire world which is on a “Runaway train never going back
    Wrong way on a one-way track …”

  • “a large proportion of service users had previous experience being disrespected for not wanting medication, and more than half of the service users report experiencing pressure to take medication or lack of alternatives to medication…”

    And now big Pharma is doing this to the entire planet with their Covid vax. (Watch “It’s the criminal banksters vs. humanity: Casino Royal for America”)

    https://www.sgtreport.com

    “This sheds important light on why the need for MFT units has arisen. It also highlights gaps in perception of reality among service users and health care professionals regarding the availability of options… health care professionals might not be sufficiently aware of the impact of power imbalance in communication about these issues.”

    I would image the “health care professionals” are aware of the fact that our entire population has been brainwashed to believe we should “trust your doctor.” Despite the fact that too many of the doctors have apparently turned themselves into nothing more than big Pharma brainwashed pill pushers.

    “In the new study, researchers at the University of Oslo led by Kari Standal sought not only to document an alternative to the expected medication-based model of mental health treatment, but also the reasons why users desired medication-free treatment.”

    The reason we want medication-free treatment is because the ADHD drugs and antidepressants can create the “bipolar” symptoms, but the “mental health” workers claim ignorance of this fact. The antidepressants and antipsychotics can create “psychosis,” via anticholinergic toxidrome. But, again, the “mental health” workers claim ignorance of this fact. And the antipsychotics / neuroleptics can also create the negative symptoms of “schizophrenia,” via neuroleptic induced deficit syndrome. A fact also missing from their DSM “bible.”

    “That is, service users want to have a choice in their treatment, or at the very least, participate in shared decision-making with their practitioner.”

    Anything less, has less than zero to do with freedom. Which is why psychiatry, psychology, et al – and their forced treatments – have less than zero to do with believing in freedom or American ideals.

  • I’m pretty certain the fiscally irresponsible globalist banksters, who’ve seemingly set up the greed only inspired “Rockefeller” medical community, and their scientific fraud based “mental health” system, to be their “omnipotent moral busy bodies,” about whom C. S. Lewis forewarned us against. Whose goal is to attack and steal from all the younger generations of the US. It strikes me that they are the problem.

  • Yes, I’m quite certain the debate is about the wrong thing. The debate should be about whether it should be legal to prescribe any form of antipsychotics at all.

    Especially given the fact that the patients already know the antipsychotics can create psychosis and hallucinations – positive symptoms of “schizophrenia” – via ‘anticholinergic toxidrome.’ Plus we know the antipsychotics / neuroleptics can create the negative symptoms of “schizophrenia,” via ‘neuroleptic induced deficit syndrome.’ Plus we know that withdrawal from the antipsychotics can create a drug withdrawal induced ‘super sensitivity manic psychosis.’

    Information which points to the fact that it should be made illegal to prescribe the antipsychotics all together.

  • “The author mentions psychologists, social workers, etc. However, many of them, especially, in the United States have been “surrogates” for the psychiatrists.”

    So true. In the US, psychologists are medically untrained people, who often misdiagnose the common adverse effects of the psych drugs with the “invalid” DSM disorders, then force people to be further psych drugged.

    “In the old days, many would go to their local pastor, priest, or minister. However, in many churches, especially the more traditional ones, these good people now refer their clients to psychiatry and even take up for the psychiatrists, etc.”

    Absolutely, that’s what happened to me. I had a question about a Spiritual dream, and rather than a pastor just stating that a dream about being ‘moved by the Holy Spirit,’ merely means one is moved by the Holy Spirit.

    Instead, I was sent to a supposed “holistic Christian talk therapist” psychologist who fraudulently wrote in her medical records that that dream was a “Holy Spirit voice.”

    Which pastors of a different religion did agree was blasphemy of the Holy Spirit, the one and only unforgivable sin in the Holy Bible. And, according to that psychologist’s medical records, she got all her misinformation about me, from her pastor and his pedophile buddies. Which I’m quite certain was illegal.

    An ethical pastor of a different religion did confess this type of medical/religious child abuse covering up crime – which is happening on a massive societal scale – is known as “the dirty little secret of the two original educated professions.”

    And I will say the ladies in my childhood church came right out and confessed that their pastors were “partnered with” the “mental health” workers.

    “One other thing, in the USA, at least it might not be profitable to depend on the traditional doctors to help in this. Sadly, traditional doctors, now seem to spend a lot of time being more like psychiatrists than the specialties, etc. they were trained in.”

    Very true, the traditional doctors are the ones handing out the antidepressants under the disingenuous guise of “safe … meds,” to cover up their incompetent husband’s easily recognized malpractice.

    And I couldn’t even convince a pediatrician into ending the mass drugging of children with my “one in a million” psychopharmacological research. That pediatrician was shaking, because she knew what I was saying was the truth, but then she told me, “it’s too profitable to stop psychiatrically drugging the kids.”

    These faustian “partnerships” / “conspiracies” between the “psy professionals,” mainstream doctors, and the religious leaders in the US do make this one gigantic mess. And their corruption and crimes against humanity are just staggering in scope.

  • As one who has proof in my medical records that, at least all the DSM “bible” believers I dealt with, were Holy Spirit blasphemers. And likely believe “Brain equals mind; Genetics replaces past life experience; Evolution is the only explanation for human development.” But I also found them to be the opposite of “critical thinkers.”

    I think you’re likely right, “psychiatry does practice a kind of ‘racism.’ It is the ‘de-humanization’ of the human spirit, the psyche that it pretends to treat!” Not to mention, they’re blasphemers of not just the human spirit, but the Holy Spirit, too.

  • “Psychiatrists are invariably called in to testify the person is not competent or lacks capacity. However, laypeople are just as good — actually better — at making such determinations.”

    This is likely true for several reasons. Like, for example, that the dumbest people who got in to med school, are apparently directed into psychiatry. And I know when I went to college, it was the kids who couldn’t get into the architecture, engineering, business, et al schools, who ended up going into psychiatry. Plus, I believe about the only people who can get their masters degrees, without first having to take the GRE, are the “mental health” workers.

    Not to mention, the “mental health” workers I have known do have a tendency to assume they are more intelligent than others. Likely because they’ve unjustly – by our governments – been given the right to force treat people and steal people’s children, via their societal role as omni-potent moral busy bodies.

    But I will say, when an unsolicited moral busy body psychologist handed one of those conservatorship / guardianship contracts to me – under a disingenuous guise – plus due to his incorrect assumptions about me, and desire to make an ass out of me.

    I was already well researched, thus able to make an ass out of him, and his religion, which has “partnered” with the “mental health” workers. Merely by pointing out the systemic child abuse covering up crimes of the “mental health” workers, and the bishops of his religion.

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

    It’s good people are talking about these horrendous contracts. I’m glad I knew enough to read a contract, prior to refusing to sign it. But I’ve heard these are being handed out to many elderly as well, so their assets can be stolen. And then the psychiatrists kill these elderly, with their neurotoxins.

    These contracts should be illegal, but I know they’re not yet, since I went and asked a cop about just that. I do think the cop was amused that one of the asses, who hands these contracts out, was called out, however.

  • “If the psychiatrists had not forgotten their history, then perhaps we would have had a better psychiatry today, but they repeat the same mistakes they have repeated for over 150 years.” Only now their mistakes are on a much larger and more deadly scale. Psychiatry is murdering “8 million” people EVERY year, according to the former head of NIMH.

    https://www.nimh.nih.gov/about/directors/thomas-insel/blog/2015/mortality-and-mental-disorders

    The depression pills and prescription speed can create the “bipolar” symptoms. Both the depression pills and major tranquilizers (antipsychotics / neuroleptics) can create psychosis and hallucinations, two of the positive symptoms of “schizophrenia,” via anticholinergic toxidrome poisoning. And the major tranquilizers can also create the negative symptoms of “schizophrenia,” via neuroleptic induced deficit syndrome.

    Great suggestions, Peter. And I agree, apologies are needed from all the psy-“professions” to all of humanity for their incessant lies, their defamation of character of their clients with their “invalid” disorders, and their mass murder of their clients – the vast majority of whom are innocent child abuse survivors, not “dangerous” criminals. Thank you so much for speaking the truth, Peter.

  • If only more “mental health” workers were like you, Robert. The psychiatrists’ and psychologists’ bio-bio-bio obsession is just plain stupid, at this point. Especially since those of us here all know the ADHD drugs and antidepressants can create the “bipolar” symptoms. And the neuroleptics / antipsychotics can create the negative symptoms of “schizophrenia,” via neuroleptic induced deficit syndrome, as well as creating the positive symptoms, via anticholinergic toxidrome. Meaning the etiology of possibly most “bipolar” and “schizophrenia” is iatrogenic, not genetic.

    And, of course, depressing circumstances are likely the primary cause of depression. Can you imagine my former psychologist had delusions that distress caused by 9/11/2001, shortly after that worldwide distressing event, was distress caused by a “chemical imbalance” in my brain alone? I wish she’d explained her insane belief system to me, prior to when I was picking up her medical records.

    Common sense should dictate the reality that madness / mental illness “emerges from the dynamic interaction between the individual’s identity, self, character, or personality and their particular social context,” and from the psychiatric drugs as well.

  • This type of pharmaceutical fraud based advertising – in connection with an understanding of the psychiatric industries’ systemic iatrogenesis – and an admission by a pediatrician, after I’d explained psychiatry’s systemic iatrogenesis to her, that she can’t stop prescribing the psych drugs to children because “it’s too profitable.” It really does leave one knowing it’s no longer wise advise to trust either big Pharma advertising (actual propaganda), nor any doctor.

  • It’s so nice, Maria, that some of you psychiatric nurses, who are starting to garner insight into the staggering amount of psychiatric malpractice, are starting to speak out, and trying to set up alternatives. Thank you.

    I was fortunate to have some mainstream medical nurses finally garner insight into my PCP’s, and her systemic malpractice covering up, misinformed psychiatric “professionals” misdiagnoses … which were finally noticed by her decent nurses in 2005, seen for what they were.

    Thus, those decent nurses did hand over my families’ medical records shortly thereafter. And one decent nurse even followed my family to two subsequent PCP’s, to try to protect my children and I.

    Medical records, which included the medical evidence of the sexual abuse of my four year old child, not to mention a “bad fix” on a broken bone of mine, at which that PCP’s incompetent husband had been the “attending physician.”

    In my subsequent medical research, I was shocked to learn all about, what an ethical pastor of a different religion, confessed to be “the dirty little secret of the two original educated professions.”

    It’s truly disgusting that both the psychiatric and psychological industries are largely in the business of covering up child abuse for the paternalistic religions, and easily recognized iatrogenesis for the incompetent doctors.

    So absolutely, real change is needed. Thanks, and God bless you in your efforts, of trying to bring about real life change. Especially since I have older nurse friends, who’ve freely confessed they knew nothing about the systemic psychological and psychiatric industries’ systemic scientific fraud based crimes.

    And I must agree with Madmom, that we need all decent “mental health” workers, to call for an end to the forced psychiatric treatment of all people.

  • Thanks, Ted, great idea. And I agree with you and others above that people don’t see the connection between these conservatorship contracts and the psychiatrists / psychologists who help create them. And I do include the psychologists because I was handed over one of those contracts, under the disingenuous guise of an “art manager contract,” by a non-clinical psychologist.

    Thankfully, I knew enough not to sign the contract, and requested a police report be filed against that psychologist. But I will say it is staggering the criminal lengths both psychologists and psychiatrists will often go to “maintain the status quo” – which is basically to maintain their multibillion dollar, primarily child abuse and rape covering up, scientific fraud based “mental health” system. Also known as “the dirty little secret of the two original educated professions,” according to an ethical pastor.

  • “psychologists [must] first think more broadly about the harm done by the systems of which we are a part.” Most definitely the psychologists are a huge part of the problems in our society today.

    For one, they have “partnered with,” and function as, the child abuse and rape covering up arm of the paternalistic religions. Which has left us all living in a pedophile empire,” with child sex trafficking and pedophilia running amok.

    Most definitely, psychology should “uphold several of its core ethical standards: beneficence, nonmaleficence, and respect for people’s rights and dignity,” since they’ve been, and still are, doing the opposite of upholding any of these ethical standards.

    For goodness sakes, their DSM “bible” is nothing more than a book of stigmatizations / defamations of character. And they’re now forcing – and disingenuously trying to force – those conservatorship/guardianship contracts onto people, to cover up the systemic fraud and crimes of all the so called “mental health professionals.”

    https://www.madinamerica.com/2021/07/speak-out-britneys-fight-our-fight/

    But I will remind them of a little slice of wisdom. “We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.” And I know from first hand experience that too many of the American psychologists want to “maintain the status quo,” and not get rid of their scientific fraud based DSM “bible,” despite it’s “invalidity” being admitted.

    https://www.nimh.nih.gov/about/directors/thomas-insel/blog/2013/transforming-diagnosis

    While they also continue to deny the fact that the drugs they’ve been forcing onto innocent others create the symptoms of their “invalid” DSM disorders.

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

    I don’t personally agree with the WHO in regards to everything. However, I do agree MAJOR reform of the “mental health” industries is needed. This should begin with flushing the psychologists’ DSM “bible,” and setting up places where people can get real help weaning off of the psychiatric drugs, if they so choose.

    And personally I believe there’s a point in time when we realize the psychological and psychiatric industries have so betrayed the masses, that their power to force treat anyone is stripped from them. “Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power” has corrupted them absolutely. And we look to alternative voices to solve the societal problems, that the psychological and psychiatric industries have created.

  • There definitely is a problem here in the US with psychologists and psychiatrists who want to “preserve the status quo.” I had the misfortune of running into such a psychologist, and he tried, disingenuously, to get me to sign one of those conservatorship contracts, under the guise of an “art manager” contract. It basically stated that psychologist wanted to steal everything from me and turn me into his slave, so I didn’t sign it.

    He had handed that contract to me, merely because my artwork was “too truthful,” and he had concern there might be a market for a “Chicago Chagall.” God forbid an artist visually documents the truth about what’s going on, in the time and place, in which she lives. And how ironic, her favorite artist – who seemingly painted the story of her life and dreams – was a Jew, who survived the Nazi psychiatric holocaust of the Jews. And she was an artist who survived today’s modern day psychiatric holocaust of all of Western civilization.

    https://www.nimh.nih.gov/about/directors/thomas-insel/blog/2015/mortality-and-mental-disorders

    But I will say, both Chagall and I also had/have a love story within our dreams. A love story with God, and all the decent people who believe in God.

    “The only thing I had done was to tell people the truth. This cannot be tolerated when the subject is psychiatry, which could not survive in its present form if we collectively faced the lies and acted accordingly.”

    Psychiatric lies like, for example, that the antidepressants and ADHD drugs can NOT create the “bipolar” symptoms? And lies like the antipsychotics/neuroleptics can NOT create the positive symptoms of “schizophrenia,” via anticholinergic toxidrome, and the negative symptoms, via neuroleptic induced deficit syndrome?

    “If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”

    Thank you for continuing to tell people the truth, Peter. “In a Time of Universal Deceit — Telling the Truth Is a Revolutionary Act,” so no doubt we are living in a time of universal deceit.

  • This is good news. And, as one who had a “first psychotic break,” on a child’s dose of Risperdal. So I left that “Foul up” confessing psychiatrist. But then I was forced to go to another psychiatrist, by what turned out to be a child abuse covering up psychologist.

    I was initially taken off the Risperdal for two weeks, and put on Seroquel and lithium. Then my husband and I were lied to, and that damn Risperdal was added to that mix. Which resulted in a ton of anticholinergic toxidrome poisonings.

    And I’ve since read some of Paula Caplan’s research into J&J’s and Allen Francis’ crimes, regarding the marketing of Risperdal.

    https://www.madinamerica.com/2015/10/diagnosisgate-a-major-media-blackout-mystery/

    So IMHO – and as one who may have (my mom said she’d check tomorrow, to see if my recollection is correct) used to live in a house, that was purchased from some Janssons – I do most definitely believe that J&J does deserve to pay for their crimes.

    I’m not certain what is confusing to the US government officials, about it makes no logical sense to have “too big to fail” banks, nor a scientific fraud based medical / pharmaceutical industrial complex. Since it’s been well known for a long time that “Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely.”

  • Thank you for sharing your story, Chris. As one who had the misfortune of dealing with a lunatic – I eventually learned, from my child’s and my medical records, child abuse covering up – ELCA Lutheran psychologist, who asked if I had ever in my life thought about suicide.

    At which, I responded, as a grown adult … ‘maybe I thought about it, when I was a teenager?’ A response which turned into a fraudulent claim that I was actively suicidal, by that lunatic psychologist, to a psychiatrist, amongst a bunch of other lies. Resulting in a whole bunch of antipsychotic induced anticholinergic toxidrome poisoning attempts at my life.

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

    I will agree, most psychologists and psychiatrists are doing everything wrong, when it comes to suicide prevention. And they really ought to get out of the systemic child abuse and rape covering up business, which is their primary actual societal function, and it’s all by DSM design.

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

    I will say that my experience with psychologists and psychiatrists is they seem to have difficulty understanding the English language, at all. I literally have proof, in my medical records, that my former psychiatrist believed my entire life to be a “credible fictional story,” after I confronted him with all the misinformation written in his medical records.

    A subsequent criminal (her partner in crime was eventually convicted by the FBI) ELCA hospital employed psychiatrist, was seemingly incapable of understanding the words, ‘You’re drugs make me sick.’ And ‘It’s against my [new] religion to take your drugs.’ So I had to ask, in my mean mom voice, ‘Does anyone here speak English.’

    And another ELCA psychologist, who I refused to hire, in part because he pretended to not understand anything I said. And he had hoped to steal all profits from my work, my work, all my money, and my story, via a conservatorship /guardian – disingenuously labeled “art manager” – contract.

    Truly, I agree, psychologists and psychiatrists should learn to listen to – and actually hear and believe – people’s real life concerns. And I will mention that even the FBI is now confessing that America has huge child abuse and trafficking problems.

    https://www.fbi.gov/investigate/violent-crime/human-trafficking

    And a former CIA guy, in conjunction with this psychologist, have confessed we live in a “pedophile empire.”

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

    So child abuse does happen. And denying and covering up such traumatic crimes does not make those crimes non-existent. Such criminal cover ups – to the contrary – help to aid, abet, and empower the pedophiles and child sex traffickers.

    But I will say, Chris, as the mother of two gay children, I am glad to learn that the Unitarian Universalist church welcomes gay people. Since one cannot stand against child abuse of any kind, without being attacked by a psychologist, in the ELCA religion. And I do love my children, even if they have made alternative lifestyle choices.

    I’m glad you have seemingly found God, and an accepting religion. I found God (or, more truthfully, God found me) decades ago. But I’m still in search of a religion that believes, “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 have that Holy Bible quote written on one of my paintings, and that last Lutheran psychologist couldn’t handle the fact, that a mom stands against child abuse.

  • “Adverse childhood experiences related to trauma were reported only 11 times (0.05% of the total dataset), but in epidemiological studies, 31% of participants have reported trauma events in childhood.”

    ACEs have been reported at higher rates by others.

    “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/

    The bottom line is huge percentages of those labeled with the DSM/ICD disorders are child abuse survivors. And covering up child abuse and rape has been the business of the psychological and psychiatric professions for a very long time.

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

    And in the US, all this systemic child abuse covering up is by DSM design. It’s due to the lack of ability of the US “mental health” workers to bill for helping child abuse survivors.

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

    It does appear that the ICD has allowed for billing to help child abuse survivors, seemingly since 2016? I’m not sure when this was added to the ICD.

    https://www.icd10data.com/ICD10CM/Codes/S00-T88/T66-T78/T76-/T76.12XA

    “Research has demonstrated that the inclusion of information about social determinants reduces the likelihood that a pattern of behavior is seen as pathological.” So “inclusion of information about social determinants” should be made mandatory for all “mental health” workers.

    To the logical mind, it’s absurd to think that entire industries – of self proclaimed “professionals” – could actually have gone off believing the bio-bio-bio theory that “all distress is caused by chemical imbalances in individuals’ brains,” for decades. How insane!

    And I will say many (seemingly most) of the US psychologists and pastors don’t want to end this multibillion dollar, systemic child abuse and rape covering up, “dirty little secret of the two original educated professions.”

  • “In the US, for instance, lived experience work has not attained the same widespread use and support in mainstream psychiatric services.”

    Definitely true. And they’re still teaching the “chemical imbalance” theory to peer trainees in the US, which is when I realized I wanted no part of that BS.

    Plus, in the US, many psychologists and psychiatrists are trying to force, and are forcing, people with lived experience to sign conservatorship / guardianship contracts, so they can steal all assets from those with lived experience. Which leaves me asking who would want to work for, or with, such a criminal bunch of ungodly disrespectful, so called “professional” criminals?

    “That lived experience workers should be the ones in leadership roles in their own field may seem obvious.” I agree, but actually I think they should be working towards being an alternative to the mainstream DSM medical model people, not working under the “invalid” DSM “bible” believers.

    “Still, for a fledgling profession whose workers typically provide services under the purveyance of clinical managers, fears of assimilation are genuine.” And it did appear to me, this is the problem in the mid-west area, in which I currently live. We need alternatives to the DSM “mental health” system instead … and I’m quite certain this is true, worldwide.

    But as someone, living in the heartland of America, who knows one does need to stand up against the criminal globalist banksters, who’ve taken control of the large banks of the east and west coasts of America. Not to mention the religious leaders, who’ve “partnered with” the “omnipotent moral busy bodies” of the scientific fraud based, DSM “bible” believing, “mental health” industries.

    I know, sometimes, doing such is better done, by not being “assimilated” into their satanic systems. But my experience is likely a partial explanation for why “lived experience work has not attained the same widespread use and support in mainstream psychiatric services” in the US.

  • Paula did a lot to point out the fraud and harm of the DSM, and if I recall correctly, also some greed inspired crimes of the primary editor of the DSM-IV?

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-qIQqRl94_Y

    I did not know Paula personally. But I will say, what I do know about her work and writings made her, likely my favorite, female critical or anti psychiatry psychologist. (I’m not certain how she personally identified.)

    I’m saddened to hear of Paula’s passing. Her family should be very, very proud of all her work. Her integrity, honesty, speaking out against the scientific fraud of the paternalistic psychiatric system, and wisdom should be respected, by all, forever.

    My condolences to her family, and all who were personally affected by her work, of which I will say I am one, albeit only via the internet. But this is why I’m saddened by her passing. Paula will be missed by many.

  • Thank you to both these ladies for pointing out the connection between ACEs and the “mental illness” DSM stigmatizations. Especially since 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/

    And the psychologists are equally as guilty in systemically covering up child abuse and rape, as the psychiatrists, and likely have been doing such for over a century.

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

    And all this systemic “mental health” industry child abuse covering up is 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

    I do so hope the child abuse, and easily recognized malpractice covering up crimes, of the members of the scientific fraud based “mental health” industries, will be exposed and ended, at some point. Since, for God’s sake, they’re killing “8 million” innocent people every year, with their neurotoxic drugs and “invalid” disorders, according to the former head of the NIMH.

    Not to mention – all the paternalistic psychological, psychiatric, and religious industries’, systemic child abuse covering up crimes – which, of course, function to aid, abet, and empower the child abusers, sex traffickers, and other pedophiles. Thus these systemic “mental health,” and their religious “partners,” industries’ crimes have left us all living in a “pedophile empire.”

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

    Definitely a change is needed.

  • “While proponents of APM emphasize the positive effects on traditional outcomes, such as reduction in utilization of medical service, emergency visits, symptoms, and rates of relapse and mortality.”

    My experience was antipsychotics caused a great increase in utilization of medical services, emergency visits, symptoms, and I likely should have died, based on the staggering amounts of antipsychotics I was forced to take. At least I’ve read of others, given less of these drugs, who did die.

    And I’d like to ask, given my medical research findings, that since the antipsychotics can create “psychosis” and “hallucinations” – the primary “positive” symptoms of “schizophrenia” – via anticholinergic toxidrome. And since they 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

    What is the medical evidence that the psychologists, psychiatrists, and other mainstream doctors – who are “proponents” of forced treatment with the antipsychotics – have that this drug class actually causes a “reduction in utilization of medical service, emergency visits, symptoms, and rates of relapse and mortality?”

    Since none of my – nor other psychopharmacological researchers’ findings, that I’m aware of – seem to agree with this supposed mainstream psychiatric / psychological / medical industries’ belief system.

    “The field must ensure that future measures and tools are meaningfully coproduced and involve researchers and/or community members with personal experience of long-term antipsychotic use and, where applicable, discontinuation.”

    I’d be one of those people. My psychiatrist eventually concluded my non-medically trained psychologist misdiagnosed me, and he did wean me off the drugs. And, in my medical research findings, I did find my psychologist did, in fact, misdiagnose me, even according to her DSM-IV-TR.

    I happen to be white, but I understand it is frequently claimed that there is “the tendency to prescribe APM differently to Black and Latinx versus White service users.” So I have been sharing my medical research findings with the non-medically trained social workers and pastors in my area, who are blindly going out into the black community, likely trying to put black people on the antipsychotics.

    Roe and colleagues “highlight that shared decision-making must be congruent with the ‘patient’s goals, preferences, and values.'”

    I agree, and that statement is basically an admission – by “mental health professionals” – that forced treatment by any “mental health” worker should be made illegal. Which is a sentiment, with which I agree 100%.

  • “our study shows that the obsession of biological researchers with anything psychotic as the precursor for ‘schizophrenia’ is misplaced. Instead, the ‘high risk’ is mediated by severe emotional distress and addiction problems, NOT psychosis in isolation.”

    I must say, there most definitely is an “obsession” with ‘psychosis’ – or ‘voices’ – with the DSM “bible” believers, in practice. I had a DSM “bible” believing psychologist who was absolutely obsessed with “voices.” She literally claimed all dreams, gut instincts, and thoughts were “voices,” aka “psychosis,” in her medical records.

    That psychologist did ignore my cigarette addiction. And she misdiagnosed the common symptoms of the non-“safe smoking cessation med” / antidepressant, I’d been given, that didn’t work for smoking cessation. She misdiagnosed the common symptoms of antidepressant discontinuation syndrome as “bipolar.” Apparently that psychologist was not intelligent enough to read this disclaimer in her DSM-IV-TR “bible.”

    “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.”

    And you are correct, she did also ignore legitimate distress. She eventually confessed to me, when I was picking up her medical records, that she thought legitimate distress caused by 9/11/2001 – just after that worldwide distressing event – was distress caused by a “chemical imbalance” in my brain alone. Loony!

    “why do [the CHR-P] supporters ignore predictors like severe emotional distress and addiction?”

    No doubt, the DSM “bible” thumpers only believe in “neurobiological causes” of distress. As opposed to believing in a bio-psycho-social model of distress causation.

    And the DSM “bible” believers also need to be educated regarding the fact that both their antidepressants and their antipsychotics (aka neuroleptics) can actually create “psychosis,” via anticholinergic toxidrome. Since this medically known way to poison people is – conveniently for the psychiatrists, et al – missing from their DSM.

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

    I agree with “van Os, that 52 million dollar grant is wasteful.” For goodness sakes, the head of NIMH stated funding into the “invalid” DSM disorders should be ended, way back in 2013.

    https://www.nimh.nih.gov/about/directors/thomas-insel/blog/2013/transforming-diagnosis

    Thank you as always, Peter, for reporting the truth.

  • “Heilbuth had whistleblower Blair Hamrick in his film, a US salesman from GlaxoSmithKline who said that their catchphrase for paroxetine was that it is the happy, horny, and skinny drug.”

    The “happy, horny, skinny drug” catchphrase was also used to promote Wellbutrin, a SNRI.

    https://www.truthinadvertising.org/happy-horny-skinny-pill/

    Thank you again, Peter, for all your truth telling.

  • “‘Another reason therapy can be harmful is that the therapist is actually psychotoxic – this is where a therapist’s behaviour directly harms a client’s mental health or wellbeing, for example by undermining their confidence or self-esteem, or fostering unhealthy dependency.’”

    Isn’t this the truth of all the scientifically “invalid” DSM “bible” stigmatizers of the psychological industries’ today? Who defame people, to their loved ones, with their “invalid” DSM disorders? Then force the psychiatric industry’s drugs, that create the symptoms of their DSM disorders, onto their clients?

    I think it is. At least my experience is that most “mental health” workers today are actually “psychotoxic.” No doubt, because their DSM “bible” is “invalid,” yet they still believe in it.

  • I started reading your story, Carlton, and tears came to my eyes – the injustice of it all, is just heart wrenching. I had to stop reading, since I’d just finished a walk in a park, and was sitting at a picnic table in that park, and I didn’t want to cry in public.

    “The best drug that helped me was understanding. That’s the best drug.” Words of wisdom, Carlton. And I agree, “the truth will set you free.” The truth is what saved me from psychiatry, too.

    “Let’s be real: I hit my peak, and that’s livin’ here.” I’m quite certain this is evidence that housing is more important to provide, than ANY “mental health” service or drug.

    Thank you for sharing your story, Carlton. I’m finishing the cry that I started in that park, as I write this, in the privacy of my home. I’m glad you survived, and I hope you may retire – in peace – in your beautiful “house.” And I pray God blesses you and your family.

  • “According to the analytical rumination hypothesis, depression evolved to keep people focused on the source of their distress until they could come up with a solution to resolve the relevant problem. … [On this view] there is reason to believe that [antidepressant meds] have an iatrogenic effect that prolongs the life of the underlying episode and leaves patients at elevated risk for relapse whenever taken away.”

    I’m pretty certain this is what the antidepressants have, for decades, been used for. As one who was inappropriately given an antidepressant, by a PCP, under the guise of a “safe …med,” to cover up a “bad fix” on a broken bone. Which, when abruptly taken off of it, did result in the common symptoms of antidepressant discontinuation syndrome, being misdiagnosed by multiple doctors, even according to the DSM.

    Based upon my experience and research, the psychological and psychiatric industries are the systemic malpractice and child abuse covering up factions of the medical and religious industries, according to my family’s medical records. And according to reality, their primary actual societal function is apparently covering up child abuse.

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

    I’m quite certain, both the psychological and psychiatric industries should get out of the child abuse covering up business, since such is illegal. Not to mention, they should get out of the illegal business of covering up easily recognized malpractice, too.

    But I have no doubt, the systemic child abuse covering up psychological industry, did likely f-ck up, by totally partnering with the “bullshit” and “invalid” DSM “bible” thumping psychiatrists. Since now even the NIMH, UN, and WHO are speaking out against their systemic crimes.

    And now these “mental health” industries are handing over “conservatorship” contracts, under disingenuous guises, to attempt to cover up their co-workers’ crimes, rather than utilizing their malpractice insurance, for what it is intended. Truly, the American psychiatric and psychological industries have sunk to the lowest depths of human existence.

    Dumbf-cks, your ADHD drugs and antidepressants can create the “bipolar” symptoms. And your antipsychotics / neuroleptics can create the positive and negative symptoms of “schizophrenia,” via anticholinergic toxidrome and neuroleptic induced deficit syndrome.

    In as much as I’m not a believer in the “mental health” workers “genetics” / evolution based belief system. I do know their current belief system is based upon iatrogenesis, not genetics, thus it is morally deplorable.

  • It’s a good thing this is making the mainstream media, thanks to Britney. And I’m glad I knew enough about the importance of reading and understanding contracts, when I was handed one of these satanic contracts, to not sign it.

    Truly, these ‘conservatorship’ contracts should be illegal. Since their purposes really only seem to be covering up the massive amount of, and systemic, psychological and psychiatric malpractice; and systemically stealing from – and killing – wealthy older adults.

  • Thanks for sharing your story, Rebekah. I agree with your friends, you should write a book, you’re a good writer. But, then again, so should I. Not so much because I’m a good writer, but because I have a story that should be told, since I found medical proof of the iatrogenic etiology of ‘the sacred symbol of psychiatry.’

    But I’ve been struggling to get my story written for a long time, too. I did work with a group of writers a few months ago. I found that helpful, but it was via Zoom, and I really prefer personal interaction with my fellow humans. So I may look into local writing groups.

    Similar to you, I had the common adverse and withdrawal effects of an antidepressant misdiagnosed as ‘bipolar.’ Resulting in the onslaught with the ‘mood stabilizers’ and ‘antipsychotics.’

    It sounds like you’ve suffered, several times, from a drug withdrawal induced ‘super sensitivity manic psychosis.’ I dealt with such twice. Thankfully, I’ve been drug free for almost 12 years now. So do know you, too, can withdrawal successfully, if you really want. Have hope, no fear, but do withdrawal very slowly.

    Again, thanks for sharing your creatively written story. God bless, on your healing journey, and with your writing.

  • “we must focus on the rebuilding of social and communal bonds. It also means ensuring that we respect local contexts when measuring well-being by asking people how they understand and experience it; in other words, what is important to them.”

    This is 100% the opposite of what the American psychological profession have been doing for decades, at least from my experience. They have “partnered with” the formerly Christian religions. Their role is to cover up child abuse for the religions, so they work to silence, defame, poison, steal from, and get anyone who has ever experienced any form of injustice or trauma, out of the churches. Which, of course, means they work together to destroy social and communal bonds, due to their goal to “maintain the status quo” / this faustian medical-religious, primarily child abuse covering up, “partnership.”

    And, from my experience, the last thing psychological industries care about is “what is important” to those they attack. All they care about is what is best for themselves and their religious partners, so they may maintain this faustian “status quo.”

    And, of course, since so many psychologists and psychiatrists are handing out those “conservatorship” contracts, under disingenuous guises, or by force – in the hopes of stealing from people – and covering up the psychiatric and psychological industries’ systemic, on a massive scale, malpractice.

    Well, dah, stealing everything from another person would – of course – cause poverty, so the psychological and psychiatric industries should stop trying to disingenuously steal from others, with those “guardianship” contracts.

    Since, of course, ignoring “the role poverty plays” in people’s well being is plain stupid. And, literally attempting to impoverish others, with these “conservatorship” / “garenership” contracts is, of course, downright criminal behavior. It’s called thievery.

  • “Some researchers have even pointed to the creation of an ‘Autism Industrial Complex’ whereby the diagnosis is used more as a means to sell interventions rather than a guide to help people … He explains that many diagnostic tests we give are biased against people with ASD, resulting in the perception of deficits where none exist.”

    This is pretty much true about all the psychiatric stigmatizations.

  • Oh, and since you referenced imaginary friends, I do have an interesting story about that. After my family moved from Chicago to NY, when I was five. I did have an imaginary friend for a while. His name was “Maybe Soup.”

    Ironically, as I was suffering through all the anticholinergic toxidrome poisonings, and then healing, via the “super sensitivity manic psychosis”/awakening. One of the families I was closest with – the wife and I co-chaired our school’s art program together, and her husband and I were both active with the Boy Scouts. Guess what their last name was?

    Campbell … maybe soup? God is seemingly a bit of a comedian, since many people in my life are aptly named.

    Could it be possible, as the awakening to my dreams implied – and as the Jung, Laing, Grof, Perry, et al psychologists proposed – that there is a collective unconscious, and we are all connected within?

    Could it be possible that I actually met, and was friends with, my childhood imaginary friend? Who ended up being a real friend, when I needed one the most? I don’t know.

    But I will say, with friends named Campbell, it does make it easy to get those Andy Warhol references interjected into my artwork.

  • “The authors suggest that more psychoeducation be given to adolescents to normalize and destigmatize messages around voice hearing …”

    As one whose misdiagnosing psychologist was obsessed with “voices” … Barb called dreams “voices.” Barb called gut instincts “voices.” Barb called the act of thinking “voices.” Everything was a “voice” to Barb.

    I’m pretty certain such “psychoeducation” would be done to ensure – – not “regardless of whether” – – “a mental health diagnosis has been made.”

    Truly, we need psychology and psychiatry to get away from our children!

    But as one who knows that the psychiatric antidepressant and antipsychotic drugs can create “voices,” via anticholinergic toxidrome. So I do know all about the psychological and psychiatric scam, and obsession with “voices.”

    I will say, American psychologists – at least Barb, and all the subsequent “mental health” workers I’d dealt with – were completely and totally ignorant of the fact that there are good and bad “voices.”

    Barb believed even a dream about being moved by the Holy Spirit, which she called the “Holy Spirit voice,” was bad. And she believed it to be definitive proof of a “life long, incurable, genetic mental illness.” Barb was a Holy Spirit blasphemer, who hypocritically called herself a “holist, Christian talk therapist.”

    The Holy Spirit is a good “voice,” but in my case – most of the time it’s more of a nod of the head, after a prayer – not a “voice.”

    The anticholinergic toxidrome induced “voices” were bad “voices.”

    But the majority of the drug withdrawal induced “super sensitivity manic psychosis” “voices” were benevolent “voices,” too. Most of them wanted to help me heal, and awaken me to the story of my dreams.

    So the American psychologists and psychiatrists really do need to wake up to the reality that there are good and bad “voices.” And not all “voices” are proof of a “life long, incurable, genetic mental illness.” Which is a staggeringly hope destroying, satanic, psychological belief system, that is prevalent in America today.

    Perhaps we should be giving the psychologists and psychiatrists some “psychoeducation,” prior to giving children such?

  • The psychological and psychiatric industries do put all who speak out against their system, or merely document the truth about their systemic crimes, through the wringer, don’t they? And it’s not just their patients, who they’re killing by the millions annually; but the ethical doctors, journalists, and artists who are just trying to document the truth, about what’s going on in our time.

    The psychological lack of ethics, disingenuousness, and downright criminality, I’ve dealt with – as a former patient and “too truthful” artist, merely trying to visually document history – is staggering. But the wringer they’ve put you – as a “too truthful” doctor – and the artists and documentarians who you’ve been working with through, is staggering too. It’s truly shameful the criminal lengths the psychologists and psychiatrists will go through, to “maintain the status quo.”

    But I guess, since psychology and psychiatry – in “partnership” with the religions, media, and governments – have succeeded in creating a multibillion dollar, primarily child abuse covering up, systemic pedophile aiding, abetting and empowering “status quo” / “pedophile empire.” So any crimes – to cover up the sick reality they’ve created – are considered acceptable, by the psychological and psychiatric industries.

    Thanks for sharing your story, Peter.

  • I agree with most of this, largely good recommendations for change. However, an issue – that I eventually learned is another systemic problem with the “mental health” industries – should be mentioned. “The dirty little secret of the two original educated professions,” is how an ethical pastor described the psychological and psychiatric crimes, with which I’d dealt.

    This “dirty little secret” is basically that the psychological and psychiatric industries have “partnered” with many (or all?) of the mainstream religions. And they function as the child abuse and rape covering up arm of the mainstream religions.

    And this is the vast majority of today’s “mental health” industry’s business, given that “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).” But, absolutely, this has been a problem with the psychological industry, at least since Freud, as well.

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

    Another aspect of this “dirty little secret” is likely also that psychology and psychiatry are, obviously, “partnered” with the mainstream medical doctors. And they function to cover up malpractice for the mainstream doctors.

    These “partnerships” with other professions – which result in systemic “mental health” industry crimes and cover ups – should be brought out into the open. How do we end these “partnerships,” and this “dirty little secret of the two original educated professions?”

    “Stupak and Dobroczyński write that all of these components already exist—they are simply not being utilized by the current system.” I think the problem is they are not being funded by the current system.

    Funding needs to be taken away from psychiatrists who have been doing nothing but drugging people, via “15 minute med checks.” And that funding needs to be redirected to psychiatrists who work to withdrawal people from the psych drugs. I do agree funding is needed for Open Dialogue, Soteria Houses, Hearing Voices groups, and other peer run programs.

    As a legitimately concerned mother, who was attacked and drugged, to cover up the abuse of my child, for a pastor. I personally believe funding – to someone other than mainstream psychologists, psychiatrists, or any other DSM “bible” believers – is needed for child abuse survivors specifically. Since the psychological and psychiatric professions, et al have been betraying child abuse and rape survivors for many decades, if not centuries, and this is all 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

    I also agree “Services [and funding] to support housing, everyday activities, and employment” are needed. And I believe forced treatment – with any drug – should be made illegal.

    As to “Checking for adverse reactions to psychiatric medications.” Until the psychiatric industries can admit to the fact that the ADHD drugs and antidepressants can create the “bipolar” symptoms.

    https://www.alternet.org/2010/04/are_prozac_and_other_psychiatric_drugs_causing_the_astonishing_rise_of_mental_illness_in_america/

    And until they can admit to the fact that the antipsychotics can create both the positive and negative symptoms of “schizophrenia,” via anticholinergic toxidrome and neuroleptic induced deficit syndrome.

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

    “Checking for adverse reactions to psychiatric medications” will be a job, that is beyond the scope of most psychiatrists’ ability.

  • “In the newest TV ads for treating depression, we are told that two-thirds of depressed persons on these drugs continue to have depressive symptoms! The add-on drug these ads suggest to take care of this problem is one of several antipsychotic drugs.” Despite the fact that all doctors – including the psychiatrists – were taught in med school that prescribing multiple anticholinergic drugs (which both the antidepressants and antipsychotics are) is unwise. Since this can result in anticholinergic toxidrome, symptoms of which are “psychosis” and “hallucinations.”

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

    “However, these add-on drugs also don’t seem to reliably get these depressed patents to a permanent remission. This depression roller coaster” – which I’m pretty certain, is often upgraded to / misdiagnosed as “bipolar” – “does not stop here with these add-on antipsychotic drugs ….”

    In fact, psychiatry is a gigantic, iatrogenic illness creation, scam. And the industry’s goal is for the living hell they are putting their clients through, to continue ad infinitum. If that weren’t their goal, they wouldn’t be lying to their clients and their families, claiming their DSM disorders are “life long, incurable, genetic mental illnesses.”

    And I agree with what you stated, “psychiatry and the pharmaceutical industry may be better off financially when drugs fail to treat a health problem, or if they create adverse effects that also must be treated with further drugs, than when drugs effectively treat a health problem and treatment can end!”

    It’s all about the money. Which, I’m guessing, most psychiatrists don’t even know is created out of nothing, by the bankers. And our monetary system is now being imploded, just like the bankers did, in pre-WW2 Germany.

    But I do believe our modern day psychiatric “holocaust” is much larger than the “6 million” killed during the Nazi psychiatric “holocaust.” Given the fact that the head of the NIMH said in 2015 that “8 million” were dying from the “invalid” DSM disorders – and of course from the neurotoxic psychiatric drugs – EVERY year.

    https://www.nimh.nih.gov/about/directors/thomas-insel/blog/2015/mortality-and-mental-disorders

    That would amount to approximately 400 million people, murdered by psychiatry, in the past 50 years. And this time the bankers are imploding – not just Germany’s or the US’s monetary system – but all nations’ monetary systems. Nothing like repeating the worst of history over and over again, but making it worse and worse each time. When will the world wake up?

    “If a higher efficacy and safety standard is ever to occur, it will have to be instituted by an entity that only allows payment for health services that meet that higher standard.” The problem with this is that those with all the money, the so called “elite,” seemingly want the rest of us dead, or at least that’s the rumor on the internet.

    But I am grateful for the ethical doctors who are speaking out against all the fraud within the medical field – particularly, but not limited to, the “mental health” field – and big Pharma’s corrupt nature. Thank you for speaking the truth, Les.

  • As one who knows, first hand, how corrupt Chicago’s “mental health” and medical system is. (I had the misfortune of dealing with this now, FBI convicted doctor, and his – yet to be arrested – psychiatric “snowing” partner in crime.)

    And as one who knows that covering up child abuse is the number one, actual societal function, of both today’s psychological and psychiatric industries. And all this systemic child abuse covering up is by DSM design.

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

    It’s so nice to hear a Chicago doctor talking about how everyone can heal, and this includes child abuse survivors.

    Since, as the mother of a child abuse survivor, whose child did heal. My child went from “remedial reading” in first grade, after the abuse; to getting 100% on his state standardized tests in eighth grade; to graduating as the valedictorian of his high school class.

    He also went on to graduate from university Phi Beta Kappa, in addition to winning a psychology department award. And you should have heard his psychology professors gush, about how intelligent and well adjusted my child was, at his university graduation.

    Yada, yada, I could go on. But he’s since gotten his graduate degree, and is now gainfully employed, and seemingly relatively happy. Albeit, he’s not yet found a significant other. However, during Covid, that’s likely difficult for all young adults.

    Nonetheless, given my family’s experience, I can’t stand listening to “mental health” workers, who still claim their “invalid” DSM disorders are “real” “life long, incurable, genetic illnesses.”

    No, the DSM disorders are just stigmatizations / defamation of character, given primarily to child abuse survivors. But according to my and my family’s medical records – also to child abuse survivors’ legitimately concerned mothers – based upon misinformation from the wealthy, and seemingly completely corrupted “religious” pedophiles, and child abuse cover uppers.

    An ethical pastor of a different religion called these systemic – largely paternalistic, to the point of being misogynist – crimes, “the dirty little secret of the two original educated professions.”

    Thank you so much, Miranda and Patricia, for this important interview. And I do so hope and pray that the ethical and intelligent women of our society, help expose – and end – this paternalistic, to the point of being misogynistic, “dirty little secret of the two original educated professions.”

  • “Defining Mental Disorders Can Be a ‘Fuzzy’ Affair”

    “while harm is useful for defining mental disorder, some proposed entities may require careful consideration of individual v. societal harm ….”

    Especially given the fact that, as in my case, an individual doctor – whose husband had committed easily recognized malpractice against one of that doctor’s patients (me) – might conclude that that patient now poses a possibility of “harm” (a potential malpractice suit) to that “individual” doctor and/or her husband. So that, paranoid of a non-existent malpractice suit, doctor inappropriately put that patient (me) on psychiatric drugs, while disingenuously calling them “safe … meds.”

    “while dysfunction is useful for conceptualizing mental disorders, the field would benefit from developing more sharply defined indicators of dysfunction.” Indeed.

    I have proof in some of my medical records that a psychiatrist (the psychiatric “snowing” partner in crime, of a now FBI convicted doctor) – who did not know me, nor even bothered to ask me what I did – incorrectly listed me as “unemployed” in my medical records.

    When, in reality, I was a planning commissioner for my village; I co-chaired the art program for my local school, a job which required organizing and educating over 250 volunteer “art teacher” moms, for 24 different art projects every year; I headed up the re-design of another of my children’s schools; I was the Charter Rep of my son’s Boy Scout pack; I was a head room mom many times, as well as doing many other volunteer jobs for my children’s schools and our church, as well.

    I was a very active and competent volunteer and mother of two children. My eldest child eventually graduated from university Phi Beta Kappa, he also got his masters, and is now working in hospital administration for the VA; my other child graduated cum laude, and is starting his doctorate this fall.

    Not to mention, I was also an artist working on my portfolio, in the hopes of future financial gain. When a psychiatrist illegally noses into a person’s finances, instead of actually asking the person what they do, and incorrectly lists the person as “unemployed” – a likely considered “dysfunction.” I have to ask, when did being a stay at home mom, active volunteer, and artist – working for future profits – become dysfunctional?

    Given the high number of artists, whose stories have been told on this website. It is clear to me that the “mental health” industry needs to garner insight into the fact that artists need to build up their portfolios, prior to trying to market and sell their work. And just because this, portfolio building, time in an artist’s life looks – to the psychiatrists – like a person is “unemployed.” The artist is actually “self-employed,” not “unemployed.”

    And I will say, when a psychologist – who knew something about art – saw a show of my work. He handed over a guardianship contract, under the guise of an “art manager” contract, which stated his hope was to steal all profits from my work, my money, my story, and all my work. Because he thought my work was “prophetic,” and that “the world might be ready for a Chicago Chagall.” This attempted thievery was deplorable behavior on the part of that psychologist. But it does, perhaps, imply that psychologist thought that my work may be valuable some day.

    So where’s the “dysfunction”? I’m quite certain the “dysfunction” is with the man, who thought it’d be clever to steal from widows in his church. Especially since the Holy Bible quite clearly states, “Do not take advantage of the widow or the fatherless.”

    “it would be useful to incorporate evidence of diagnostic validity and clinical utility into the definition of a mental disorder and to further clarify the type and extent of data needed to support such judgments.”

    All of us here on MiA know that there is zero “diagnostic validity” to any of the DSM disorders, even according to the head of the NIMH, and now the WHO.

    https://www.nimh.nih.gov/about/directors/thomas-insel/blog/2013/transforming-diagnosis
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rl_Ad-Cfm_M

    And we know that the psychiatric drugs can create the symptoms of the DSM disorders.

    https://www.alternet.org/2010/04/are_prozac_and_other_psychiatric_drugs_causing_the_astonishing_rise_of_mental_illness_in_america/
    https://duckduckgo.com/?q=toxidrome&t=osx&ia=web
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Neuroleptic-induced_deficit_syndrome

    However, this valid medical information, is information that way too many of the psychiatric practitioners deny. But given these realities, there is no “validity” or “clinical utility” – other than that it’s very profitable, for the “mental health” clinicians and big Pharma, to make people sick for profit – in regards to the clinician’s judgements.

    Indeed, “Defining Mental Disorders Can Be a ‘Fuzzy’ Affair.” And, personally, given the fact that the “mental health” workers are killing “8 million” innocent people EVERY year, with their “invalid” disorders and neurotoxic psychiatric drugs. I think it should be considered a criminal “affair” as well.

    https://www.nimh.nih.gov/about/directors/thomas-insel/blog/2015/mortality-and-mental-disorders

    Who are the people that are actually creating staggering “societal harm?” A hint:

    http://www.webdc.com/pdfs/deathbymedicine.pdf

  • Until forced psychiatric treatment is made illegal, there will be nothing “rights based” about the “mental health” industry. Psychiatry and psychology today are all about trying to take, and taking away people’s rights, lying to people, defaming people with “invalid” disorders, coercing and forcing neurotoxic drugs onto innocent others, and trying to steal from others, with conservator contracts. What is “rights based” about any of this criminal behavior?

  • I agree, well stated, kelly.b. And as one who, for some unknown reason, can tell my experience with psychiatry, in the lyrics of music. Your reminder that “creating a bigger divide,” is unwise … is a very wise comment.

    And it reminds me of a song named “the great divide,” that was popular when I escaped psychiatry. But in trying to find it, I noticed that’s a very popular song title in general.

    https://www.azlyrics.com/lyrics/mcclainsisters/thegreatdivide.html
    https://www.azlyrics.com/lyrics/neilyoung/greatdivide.html
    https://www.azlyrics.com/lyrics/scottstapp/thegreatdivide.html
    https://www.azlyrics.com/lyrics/lightthetorch/thegreatdivide.html

    I could list more, and I’m still not certain any of those are the song that was popular in late 2005 or early 2006.

    But we are all now dealing with seemingly corrupt governments, who use a “divide and conquer” war strategy, to try to divide the populous, to maintain their control. And I agree, we do need to find common ground, since we’re all just people. Including those who believe they’re “the elite.”

    I agree, likely most of the psychiatrists are just fools. Who go off to their big Pharma’s pep rallies, drink the Kool-aid, take their gifts, and do as they’re told by big Pharma. But given that’s all they are, they need to stop calling themselves “professionals,” in an attempt to claim they are above others.

    Especially since good salespeople, in order to actually behave in a “professional” manner. We do extensive research into our products, we try to sell only the best products, but have a diverse selection, to accommodate various people’s pocketbooks. We give our customers various choices, but always with our customers’ best interest at heart.

    None of that is true about psychiatrists in general. And what’s worse is our corrupt governments have unjustly given psychiatrists the right to force their products on people. If you have good products, you don’t need to force them on others. And it should be illegal for any salesperson, of any product – including big Pharma’s products – to force people to pay for a product or service, in a supposedly free market economy.

    “A bigger divide is created when demeaning the other party, e.g. comparing them to Jehovah’s Witnesses , Scientology …” Or defaming others with “invalid” disorders. Or dismissing all those of us, who don’t choose to be so defamed, as “anti-psychiatry.” And this is exactly the kind of un-professional, immature behavior, that almost all psychiatrists’ exhibit.

    “… waking up the world,” hopefully we’re doing it.

  • As one who had the common symptoms of antidepressant discontinuation syndrome misdiagnosed as “bipolar,” decades ago. I say many, many thanks to all those “service users,” who are actively helping people, and are working to fill this gap in the psychiatric, psychological, and mainstream doctors’ knowledge base. “Service users” who are actively working to properly educate the doctors. Since the psychiatrists and psychologists have been ungodly disrespectfully ignoring, dismissing, and misdiagnosing, their clients real life concerns.

    I will also say that since I’ve had ‘brain zaps’ for almost twenty years now, a common symptom of antidepressant discontinuation syndrome, that the psychiatrists and psychologists seemingly knew nothing about until 2005.

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

    At least some of the antidepressant discontinuation syndrome symptoms, may actually be permanent. And I believe it was Dr. David Healy, who has pointed out that this may also be true of the odd and adverse sexual side effects of the antidepressants.

    So we should be reporting, not just that, “it is not uncommon for the withdrawal effects to last for several weeks or months.” But, instead, that the common adverse effects of the antidepressants, and withdrawal from such, may actually be permanent.

    In my case, I’ve learned to control my “brain zaps,” in my waking hours. And I can actually “brain zap” a headache away in a NY second, which is convenient. But I will say, I do also have those occasional nights when I “brain zap” all night long, which is physically exhausting, so I awake exhausted.

    I’m quite certain that us “experts by experience” should have been listened to, and believed, by the ungodly disrespectful, systemic misdiagnosing, psychologists and psychiatrists, decades ago. And all doctors need to wake up to the reality that big Pharma, and their ‘in the pocket of big Pharma’ psychiatrists, have systemically been deluding way too many with their “invalid” DSM, for decades or longer.

    And I must confess, it makes zero sense to me, why any non-medically trained psychologist or social worker, has the right to “diagnose” anyone with anything, that requires forced treatment with drugs.

  • “In ages past, those with voices and visions were seen as touched by the divine. In modern times, no longer. ‘Yes,’ his sister says, ‘because you think it’s negative. You think it’s scary. And it doesn’t always have to be scary.'”

    It is psychiatry, psychology, and big Pharma who have brainwashed the public into believing having “voices” and “visions” is “negative.” But I agree, it’s not always “negative” or “scary.”

    As one who had a dream about being ‘moved by the Holy Spirit,’ mislabeled as a ‘Holy Spirit voice,’ which was supposedly proof of ‘psychosis.’ Resulting in a whole bunch of anticholinergic toxidrome poisonings. I will say anticholinergic toxidrome induced ‘voices’ are horrendous.

    However, I was weaned off the drugs, by a psychiatrist, who eventually concluded that my psychologist had misdiagnosed me. Which was true. I had been misdiagnosed, even according to the DSM-IV-TR. I had had the common symptoms of antidepressant discontinuation syndrome misdiagnosed as ‘bipolar.’

    But being weaned from the drugs resulted in a drug withdrawal induced ‘super sensitivity manic psychosis,’ or what I would describe as an awakening to my dreams, and an equating of my subconscious and conscious selves. The awakening was a staggeringly serendipitous experience, quite amazing really, it was as if I had perfect timing with almost all others on the planet.

    Eventually I awoke to the concept that we are ‘one in the Spirit, one in the Lord,’ and I was supposedly judged by God to be ‘of the bride.’ I did have some ‘voices’ during this experience, but the majority were benevolent, not malevolent. They wanted to help me heal.

    And basically all I needed to do to control those ‘voices’ was to politely explain to them that I couldn’t function with lots of ‘voices’ in my waking hours. They understood this. But I said, if all who are ‘one in the Spirit’ agreed that I needed to be forewarned of something, they could collectively speak to me. However, if all could not agree, I needed peace of mind in my waking hours. This worked.

    None of this was ‘scary’ for me. And in as much as I may now actually have an occasional ‘Holy Spirit voice.’ It is a benevolent ‘voice.’ It is one that ‘moved me’ and assisted me in finding the medical proof that the antipsychotics can create ‘psychosis,’ via anticholinergic toxidrome. One that also awoke me in the middle of the night, and directed me to research into what ‘schizophrenia’ was. And also find the medical evidence that the neuroleptics could also create the negative symptoms of ‘schizophrenia,’ via neuroleptic induced deficit syndrome.

    This is information that should be considered very relevant to the psychiatric field. Although it is truthful information, to which the psychiatric industry does not want to admit.

    During this entire experience, since anticholinergic toxidrome makes one ‘hyperactive’ not ‘inactive.’ I functioned as one of the ‘super mom’ volunteers in my neighborhood, and painted my experience of psychiatry’s iatrogenic ‘bipolar epidemic.’

    My work has been called ‘insightful,’ ‘work of smart woman,’ and ‘prophetic.’ I’ve been called a ‘Chicago Chagall.’ But my work – both my art work and medical research – is ‘too truthful’ for the psychologists of my childhood religion, who want to ‘maintain the status quo.’ I had one psychologist, who blasphemed the Holy Spirit, misdiagnosed me, and had me poisoned. And another psychologist who attempted to steal all my money, work, and he wanted to rewrite my story. I said no to him, too many times to count.

    I’m not certain when or why the psychologists of my childhood religion stopped believing in the Holy Spirit. But truly I believe that as a society, we should return to an understanding that some people with “voices and visions” are actually “touched by the divine.” And us Holy Spirit moved people are deserving of a lot more respect – than defamation with “invalid” disorders, and repeated attempts to kill and/or steal from us – because we believe in the Triune God.

    I agree, “You gotta have connections,” and it was my friends – not “mental health professionals” – who helped me survive. But I was forced to move out of the state in which many of my friends live. Due to a criminal psychiatrist who, for years, illegally listed me as her “out patient” with insurance companies, when I was NOT.

    And I had to leave my childhood religion, because the pastors, who claim to believe in the Triune God, but actually trust in psychologists, instead of God. Perhaps since they don’t have funding to support their local visual artists, so they think they should have the psychologists attempt to steal from us, instead of working to get funding for the visual arts? While they hypocritically claim to support the “arts,” but their church walls are bare. Nonetheless, the crimes of the pastors, psychologists and psychiatrists – who I’ve had the misfortune of dealing – make maintaining connections difficult.

    Thank you for sharing Greg’s story, Amy. Thank you, Greg, for allowing your success story to be told. I believe dispelling the psychologic and psychiatric industries’ lie – that all who have “voices and visions” are “scary” and “dangerous” people – will go a lot further in “de-stigmatizing” unusual human experiences, than any of today’s “mental health” industries’ de-stigmatization campaigns.

    Not all “voices and visions” are bad. Being ‘moved by the Holy Spirit,’ and even having an occasional ‘Holy Spirit moved’ “voice” – but usually it takes the form of a nod of my head yes or no, after a prayer – is good. And “visions,” even if such seems bizarre initially, can sometimes turn into really cool paintings. “What’s wrong with that, I need to know, ‘cuz here we go again….”

    Enough, psychologists! My story is supposed to be a lyrical libretto love story, and a “hero’s journey” story, about how I found medical proof of the iatrogenic etiology of the “sacred symbol of psychiatry.” Not that the antipsychotics are the etiology of everyone’s “voices.” Since lots of non-genetic issues – like sleep deprivation, likely trauma, stress, street drugs, other psych drugs, etc. – can also cause “voices.”

  • “Whitely’s insightful account of Claire Murray’s case, raises serious concerns about whether the Australian ‘mental health’ industry is psychiatrically medicalizing the sane distress responses of trauma and abuse victims.”

    That’s exactly what the DSM “bible” thumping psychiatric and psychological industries are doing in the US. For goodness sake, “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/

    And psychologists are just as guilty as psychiatrists.

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

    And all this child abuse covering up is by DSM design. Since in order to bill to help a child abuse survivor, the “mental health” workers first need to misdiagnose child abuse survivors, with one of the billable DSM disorders.

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

    And, of course, systemically covering up child abuse does also function to aid, abet, and empower the pedophiles, so America is now a “pedophile empire.”

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

    I’m not certain whether this was actually the goal of the psychiatric and psychological. But since they’ve apparently been systemic child abuse and rape cover uppers, since Freud’s day, perhaps it was?

    But most definitely, those who worship from the DSM “bible” are members of a systemic child abuse covering up religion.

    And what’s sad is my, formerly Christian, childhood religion has “partnered with” this child abuse covering religion. I’ve had to recommend Robert Whitaker’s “Anatomy” to the parents of a Catholic child abuse survivor, so this is problem for that religion, too. And an ethical pastor of a different Christian religion confessed this societal problem to be “the dirty little secret of the two original educated professions,” implying it might be a problem for most – or all – the religions.

    And I do know they’re now teaching the DSM “bible” in the seminary schools near me. I had previously thought seminary schools were where one goes to learn about the Holy Bible. Which clearly states, “It would be better for him if a millstone were hung around his neck, and he were thrown into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little ones.”

    The Holy Bible also states, “No man can serve two masters…” I’m pretty certain that is true about bibles, as well. No man can serve two conflicting bibles.

    Thank you for the book review, Magdalene.

  • I did not know “The brain is much more able to processes traumatic emotions when it is in an REM state.” I did know that, if I felt a cold or something like that coming on, getting a good nights sleep was always the best way to stave off a cold.

    And I’m guessing the reason people sleep so long when given the antipsychotics, is that it’s the body’s best mechanism for attempting to heal from the horrendous assault those drugs have on the brain.

    This is the second MiA blog that I’ve read claiming EMDR is a promising treatment, sounds interesting. And definitely, since most people who land in the hands of the “mental health” workers, are those dealing with some kind of trauma, good trauma treatments are most definitely needed.

  • “I was also told that many of the psychiatrists had not understood my explanations about depression pills causing suicide. This illustrates the widespread cognitive dissonance among psychiatrists. When I present the same slides for a lay audience, they always understand them. The psychiatrists DON’T WANT to understand what I tell them, as it is too painful for them.”

    So true, and for good reason. Given the fact they are murdering “8 million” innocent people EVERY year, based upon their “invalid” DSM disorders, and with their neurotoxins.

    And I have yet to research into this, but we may be living through the most deadly psychiatric holocaust ever, given how many decades the psychiatrists have been doing this. But they, no doubt, are the “omnipotent moral busy bodies,” about whom C. S. Lewis forewarned us.

    https://www.goodreads.com/quotes/19967-of-all-tyrannies-a-tyranny-sincerely-exercised-for-the-good

    Especially given my medical research findings that the “schizophrenia ‘wonder drugs.'” That all those misdiagnosed “bipolar” and “depression” patients are being put on, not to mention the “schizophrenic” diagnosed, the antipsychotics / neuroleptics. Which can create both the positive and negative symptoms of “schizophrenia.” The positive effects can be created, via anticholinergic toxidrome. The negative effects of “schizophrenia,” can be created via neuroleptic induced deficit syndrome.

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

    Yet neither of these medically known syndrome/toxidrome are ever mentioned in ANY of the psychiatric DSMs.

    “Eriksson declared that he considered Whitaker to be a ‘charlatan who tortures patients.'”

    As a former psychiatric patient, I’d say Whitaker largely tries to give patients a voice, but does not “torture” us. Albeit sometimes seemingly delays or silences our voices, when the crimes committed against us are by the psychologists – who aren’t on his website.

    I would imagine because he doesn’t think it’s fair to publish the damning ‘she said’ stuff, without giving a fair voice to the ‘he’s,’ who are now handing out conservatorship contracts, to cover up their fellow psychologists’ systemic malpractice, under unjust and disingenuous guises. Thankfully, I’m a “she” who knew enough about the importance of reading a contract, to NOT sign such a criminal ‘conservatorship contract.’

    But my point is, for the most part, I think Whitaker tries to justly give a fair voice to all involved. Albeit with a slant to the psychologists, but that’s only to be expected, since he is married to a psychologist, from my understanding.

    “I informed Whitaker about this who replied that he always said that the inaction by the medical profession regarding the prescribing of psychiatric drugs to children and adolescents is a form of child abuse and neglect, and institutional betrayal.”

    I couldn’t agree more with Whitaker, prescribing the psych drugs to children is “child abuse” and “institutional betrayal.” But I will say, prescribing the psychiatric neurotoxins to anyone is “abuse” and “institutional betrayal,” by doctors, of anyone, and of any age.

    Peter, you’ve recently been dealing with the type of staggering psychiatric cover ups and betrayal … as a well respected doctor. That I’d dealt with decades ago as a US citizen, by our current, truly criminal psychiatric industry … as a merely Spirit led, anti-child abuse, active volunteer, now “one in a million” psychopharmacological researcher, artist and mother.

    Thanks for fighting the good fight, Peter, and please do not quit. I truly believe God will judge all fairly. And us decent people, who stand against the psychiatric industries’ systemic child abuse, and the systemic child abuse covering up and profiteering crimes of all the “mental health” industries, which are all by DSM design, will be judged fairly by God.

    And these systemic child abusing, and child abuse covering up psychiatric systems, have been raping our nations for their malpractice insurance, but not been utilizing their insurance for what it is intended, for way too long. This is a form of thievery, and I’m quite certain God knows that. And it’s bizarre to finally realize, the psychologists and psychiatrists actually believe they are gods, instead of understanding that they, too, need to be, and will all be judged fairly by God.

    Let’s hope and pray, all people will be judged fairly by God.

  • “We could learn, if we only dare to look, that joy can spring from the capacity to embrace the entire range of our internal sentiments, anger and sorrow among them.

    “Most of all, we could learn from experience that we cannot create [a] world in which happiness can live without working towards a world in which justice prevails.”

    I agree. And that comes from a mother who, upon being handed over medical evidence of a mother’s (almost) worst nightmare, understood that, at least now I knew the truth. And the truth can set you free.

    And I agree, until we have justice for child abuse survivors – and the “mental health” system get out of the pedophile aiding, abetting, and empowering – systemic child abuse covering up business. There will exist anger and sorrow.

    Although, at least knowing the truth does allow one to run from the bad actors of the “mental health” and religious industries, who’ve “partnered” to cover up child abuse, for profit.

    Thank you for pointing out the stupidity of “Never Look on the Dark Side.” Since there are good and bad people and ideologies within all groups. And now that we all live a “pedophile empire.”

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

    We do actually need to look at this “dark side,” so we may work to fix our societies’ real life problems.

  • “… the necessary etiological understanding of the various forms of serious mental disorder simply did not exist.” Actually, I beg to differ. Robert Whitaker’s “Anatomy of an Epidemic,” which credibly pointed out that the ADHD drugs and antidepressants can create the “bipolar” symptoms, was published in 2010.

    This means that the etiology of a lot of “bipolar,” is related to the “mental health” clinicians’ inability to read, and abide by, this disclaimer in their DSM-IV-TR:

    “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.”

    And instead of adding the ADHD drugs to that disclaimer, as should have been done. That disclaimer was completely removed from the DSM5.

    But what this means is that the etiology of likely much of the so called “bipolar epidemic” is the misdiagnosis of the common adverse effects of the ADHD drugs and antidepressants. Which means much, or all, of the “bipolar” has an iatrogenic etiology, not a “genetic” one.

    And I know I’d found the medical proof that the antipsychotics could create “psychosis,” via anticholinergic toxidrome, by 2009. But this is also true of the antidepressants.

    I will admit, I don’t think I’d researched into what “schizophrenia” was well enough to look for and find, the medical evidence that the antipsychotics could also create the negative symptoms of “schizophrenia,” until 2015. But once I looked, it didn’t take me long to find the medical proof that the antipsychotics could also create the negative symptoms of “schizophrenia,” via neuroleptic induced deficit syndrome.

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

    This means that the etiology of much of the “schizophrenia” is the “schizophrenia treatments.” So, not only does “bipolar” likely have a primarily iatrogenic – not “genetic” – etiology, but so does “schizophrenia.”

    This means that “… the necessary etiological understanding of the various forms of serious mental disorder [DO] exist.” It’s just that the psychiatric and psychological industries don’t want to admit to the truth.

  • I was handed one of these contracts, under the guise of an “art manager” contract, after a show of my “insightful,” “work of smart female,” but “too truthful” for some, artwork. By a psychologist who said he wanted to give me an “artist of the year” award. I read the contract, it was truly appalling. The sicko psychologist who gave it to me wanted me to hire him to steal all profits from my work, and actually at times like Christmas, a sale of my work would leave me owing him money. He wanted to control my life story, rather than allowing me to write my own life’s story. He wanted to take control of my lawyers and accountants. He wanted to steal all my money and work. Truly, the contract was appalling.

    And was he ever obnoxious. He started out by telling me how wonderful it would be if he took control of my finances, since I could then concentrate more on my work. I said if I gave you control of my finances, you’d just steal my money. He humpfed and grumpfed and said something about the bankers. I took this to mean that since the banksters got away with stealing “trillions worth of houses” from innocent America families, that means it’s fine for him to steal from widows in his church. He said, just sign the contract.

    I said no, I can’t afford to hire a business manager. He asked me to sign the contract again anyway.

    Again I said no, and explained to him that I did not trust Lutheran psychologists, because a Lutheran psychologist had misdiagnosed me and destroyed my marriage, so she could cover up the abuse of my child, for her pastor. He said he was not a clinical psychologist, so I should sign the contract. I said I don’t care what kind of psychologist you are. And again, I said no.

    He then tried to tell me that I just needed to forgive those people. So I explained that I was drugged up because a non- “holist Christian talk therapist” fraudulently claimed a dream about being moved by the Holy Spirit was a “Holy Spirit voice,” according to her medical records. And I consider that blaspheming the Holy Spirit, which is the only unforgivable sin in the entire Holy Bible. Thus, forgiveness of those people is God’s decision, not mine.

    I then explained to him that I had a business degree, in addition to the art degree, and have both owned and managed many businesses in my life, so I didn’t need a business manager. He asked me again to sign the contract, again I said no.

    I went on to explain to him that one of the first things that one is taught in business school is to never, never, ever, ever, ever enter into a business contract with a person who wants to take a percentage of gross. He lied, and claimed there was no other way (like, for example, a contract where a manager takes a percentage of net profit?), and he asked me sign his thievery contact again. Again, I said no.

    He then asked me what my goal was with my work. I told him I hoped to some day get my work into the art history books. He kind of grumbled out of concern because he was afraid that “the world might be ready for a Chicago Chagall.” He then asked me again to sign the contract. I again said no.

    I further went on to tell him that I didn’t believe in the DSM, and that a DSM “bible” thumping social worker had even tried to get her grubby little hands on my child. Because he’d largely healed from the child abuse, and gone from remedial reading, after the child abuse, to getting 100% on his state standardized tests in eighth grade. He made some sort of sick comment about how trying to drug the smartest children was acceptable. And again he asked me to sign the contract. Again I said no.

    I then emailed this psychologist’s horrendous contract to my brothers, since I’d concluded by this time, that this psychologist was just an outright misogynist. My brothers absolutely agreed with me that we did not want this insane psychologist involved with our family’s money. And I told the psychologist that no one in my family wanted him involved with our family’s money. He said I should sign the contract anyway. Again I said no.

    Finally, he tells me that he won’t give me the “artist of the year” award, unless I sign the contract. So I said, fine let’s just forget about it. This prompted him to say, “Good, then you’ll sign the contract!” I was just plain pissed at this idiot at this point, and asked him “What is wrong with you!” And went on to tell him that I’d never heard of a dumber idea than to put a child abuse covering up psychologist in charge of my anti-child abuse, anti-psychiatry artwork.

    Then I finally pointed out to him that the primary actual societal function of both the psychological and psychiatric professions is covering up child abuse. And that the psychologists’ and psychiatrists’ “partnership” with my childhood religion had turned the head bishops of that religion into systemic child abuse cover uppers, too. And all these people need to get out of the child abuse covering up business.

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

    He then kind of started pleading with me about wanting to “maintain the status quo.”

    At this point, both my mother and I felt it was no longer safe for us to attend my childhood church any longer, so we stopped attending that church. I went to the police, explained the whole scam, and asked if such thievery contracts were even legal to hand out. I think the policeman got a kick out of the fact that one of these horrendous people, who hand out these evil contracts, got caught. He said he’d file a police report, and I’m guessing he called the psychologist and told him to just leave me alone.

    But truly it’s shameful these contracts are even legal. I’ve heard lots of stories from people whose elderly parent got caught up in one of these contracts, had all their money stolen, then the psychiatrist involved ends up killing the elderly parent with the psych drugs.

  • I have to say, kindredspirit, I found screening for smoking, which in my case, resulted in the prescription of an antidepressant, disingenuously called a “safe smoking cessation med.” A drug which did not help me quit smoking, so was inappropriately, abruptly discontinued by my PCP. Resulting in the common symptoms of antidepressant discontinuation syndrome being misdiagnosed as a whole bunch of things, but ultimately misdiagnosed as “bipolar.” Which, of course, leads to a whole bunch of extremely harmful anticholinergic toxidrome poisonings. So I found screening for smoking to be quite harmful.

  • Your ending advise made me smile, thank you. I’m personally so sorry for the harm psychiatrists did to you, and am very grateful more people are accepting of the LGBT community today, in part because I have a couple children in that community. Your theory of what made you “psychotic” may be true, I don’t personally know.

    But I do know that Thorazine and Stelazine could also have made you “psychotic,” both while you were on them, and/or after you were weaned from them. Since the antipsychotics can create “psychosis,” via anticholinergic toxidrome. And withdrawal from them can result in what’s known as a drug withdrawal induced super sensitivity manic psychosis.

    I’m so glad you escaped psychiatry and have enjoyed a long term happy relationship, and it sounds like a very productive and happy life. That’s my prayer for my children, too, and so far their both doing well. Kudos, thanks for sharing your story, Robert, and God bless.

  • I agree, thanks for the “too truthful” artwork, Richard. Us, “too truthful” artists, do seem to need to lead the world into a better place, while in my case, “too truthfully” recording history.

    But in my case, when I do show my visual artwork, it gets the Lutheran psychologists wanting to steal from me, which is unpleasant for me.

    God forbid, be the mother of a child abuse survivor, or one who stands against the psychological and psychiatric industry’s systemic child abuse covering up crimes, in today’s Lutheran religion.

    It’s truly sad that many of today’s Lutheran pastors and bishops have totally bought into the DSM “bible” religion, instead of believing in the Holy Bible. While they’re hypocritically still claiming to preach from the Holy Bible, and claiming to be supporters of the “arts” – with tons of empty walls in their churches – and when their employees are freely admitting they’ve “partnered” with the DSM “bible” worshippers. And they even pointed this out, by having me go to a local seminary, where the DSM “bible” religion is being taught.

    But I do still have hope us “too truthful” artists will be able to lead the world into a better place, and properly and truthfully document history, with our “too truthful” artwork. Great song, Richard. Thank you.

  • Thank you, Peter, you are getting quite good at pointing out the mockery, that are today’s psychiatric criminals. And, most definitely, we need ethical doctors like you speaking out.

    Just a few points I’d like to make, in agreement with your harsh criticism of today’s psychiatric industries’ lies and mass murders.

    https://www.nimh.nih.gov/about/directors/thomas-insel/blog/2015/mortality-and-mental-disorders

    I’m glad you used the term “snowed … by psychiatric drugs.” Since a now FBI convicted doctor – that I’d had the misfortune of being medically unnecessarily shipped to – did have me, and God knows how many other patients, “snowed.” He was having his psychiatric partners-in-crime “snow” people, in the hopes they couldn’t breath, so he could do unneeded tracheotomies on people, for profit. Here’s his conviction announcement, unfortunately he was only arrested for fraud, instead of his systemic harm of many of his patients.

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

    Personally, as a “compliant patient,” I had the misfortune of dealing with four psychiatrists. And only two didn’t put me on multiple neuroleptics, at above recommended doses.

    Why did these psychiatrists do this to me? To cover up a “bad fix” on a broken bone, for some incompetent doctors. And to cover up medical evidence of the sexual assault of my four year old child, according to my and my families’ medical records.

    Psychological and psychiatric systemic covering up of child abuse, in my case was done for a pastor. But covering up child abuse does seem to be the number one actual societal function of all the “mental health professions.” And it’s all by DSM design.

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

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

    And those systemic child abuse covering up “mental health professionals” have turned the leaders of my former religion into systemic child abuse cover uppers, too.

    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 does, indeed, also function to aid, abet, and empower the pedophiles and child sex traffickers. Leaving us all now living in a “pedophile empire.”

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

    So when I thank you for harshly criticizing today’s psychiatric industry. I know from first hand horrendous experiences, and have the documented medical proof, that they are indeed criminals; most definitely working in a very sick system. You are absolutely right to harshly condemn their crimes.

    And quite honestly, I think we – as a society – really need to have a discussion as to whether we actually should have a, primarily child abuse covering up, scientific fraud based, group of “mental health” industries, at all? As one, who was grateful for finding Whitaker’s book, “Anatomy,” which explained the etiology of how I’d been made sick.

    Plus I found the medical proof that the antipsychotics / neuroleptics can create the positive symptoms of “schizophrenia,” via anticholinergic toxidrome; as well as 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

    So I can say with absolute certainty, psychiatry’s two most “serious mental illnesses,” are iatrogenic illnesses, created with the psychiatric drugs – NOT “genetic” illnesses, as psychiatry fraudulently claims.

    But I don’t think any country, and most definitely the entire world, does not need a bunch of scientific fraud based, primarily child abuse covering up, “mental health” industries. Albeit, I do understand it’s a tough battle, since the “mental health” industries are a multibillion dollar group of industries today.

    And it breaks my heart that even my childhood religion is “in partnership” with them. For God’s sake, they’re teaching the DSM “bible” in the seminary schools in my area. It’s downright shameful the mainstream Christian religions have fully “partnered” with the DSM “bible” believers.

    But I don’t believe having any, scientific fraud based, primarily child abuse covering up, DSM “bible” believing industries, are in the best interest of any society, or any country, at all. Since covering up child abuse is illegal, so we shouldn’t have multibillion dollar industries, systemically, committing these crimes.

  • And, instead, it’s us truth tellers, and “one in a million” psychopharmacological researchers – according to the head of family medicine, at one of the US’s most well respected hospitals – speaking out against big Pharma and its ignorant psychiatric and psychological misinformed minion liars, who have choosen to speak under aliases.

    But those of us who do speak out against the systemic big Pharma industry crimes, have good reason to use aliases. Since when we do show our work, which “too truthfully” exposes these systemic industrial crimes. We are attacked, by the misinformed minion and liars of the ignorant, psychological and religious industries.

  • The “mental health” “system thus fails because it colludes with social structures that themselves generate harmful ways of being in the world.”

    No doubt, they wanted to murder a person that was distressed by 9/11/2001, and stands against the never ending wars that, that distressing event has created. Oh, because distress caused by a distressing event, is distress caused by a “chemical imbalance” in one person’s brain? WTF! They don’t seem to know much of anything about the banking and monetary systems, which most definitely need reform. Their primary actual societal function is covering up child abuse and rape, for the mainstream paternalistic religions, which most definitely need reform. Not to mention, they cover up easily recognized medical mistakes, for a big Pharma misinformed – and all too often, incompetent, and honestly downright murderous – medical industry. Oh, and they want to steal everything from us artists who speak the truth, through our history recording artwork, and based upon our many years of research into all these corrupt industries.

    “we are no longer a small and symbolically inconsequential minority – we are a growing and ever more powerful majority, with organisations like the World Health Organisation and the UN gradually aligning with this potent call for change.”

    I hope you’re right, because I have zero doubt major reform, if not the complete abolition of psychiatry, and all DSM “bible” believing “mental health” industries, is needed. I mean, how many times does Western civilization allow an industry to commit massive holocausts, without eventually saying enough is enough. Our modern psychiatric industries’ current “holocaust” is killing “8 million” EVERY year.

    https://www.nimh.nih.gov/about/directors/thomas-insel/blog/2015/mortality-and-mental-disorders

  • As one of the millions of people who’ve already had the common adverse and withdrawal symptoms of an antidepressant misdiagnosed as “bipolar.” I will point out that the psychiatrists supposedly USED to know such iatrogenic illness creation was morally repugnant behavior. From their DSM-IV-TR “bipolar” definition:

    “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.”

    But apparently they believe the mere fact of taking that disclaimer out of their “bipolar” definition, now makes it okay to create “bipolar” in millions more people? Truly, the lack of ethics of the “mental health” workers and big Pharma are out of control.

    Thanks for speaking the truth, Peter.

  • I have written proof, in my medical records, that a psychologist and psychiatrists believed a dream was “psychosis.” This means, since we all dream, all humans are “psychotic,” according to the psychologists and psychiatrists. So I’m quite certain a less all encompassing definition of the word “psychosis” is needed.

    And until psychologists and psychiatrists garner insight into the fact that their ADHD drugs and antidepressants can create their “bipolar” symptoms. And that their antidepressants and antipsychotics can create “psychosis,” via anticholinergic toxidrome. Not to mention, the antipsychotics can also create the negative symptoms of “schizophrenia,” via neuroleptic induced deficit syndrome.

    I’m quite certain, that until these realities are acknowledged by the so called “mental health professionals,” that we will not be seeing better “mental health” outcomes.

  • I’d appreciate my MiA comment being edited, since my comment to “Asylum Magazine” was too late. Here is my edited version.

    “some of my functioning has returned, although my brain chemicals are reacting and there are moments I doubt my own sanity. I am now taking olanzapine and putting on weight. My ability to write has returned and this report represents the first time since the CTO to record my experiences.”

    Been there, done that, to some extent. I hope and pray you are able to be weaned from the Zyprexa. Since it’s most definitely a nasty, and very harmful, neuroleptic drug.

    Personally, I painted myself as a ‘scape goat’ and ‘Elsie the red cow,’ as opposed to an ass. But, please do have hope, that one can slowly be weaned from the neurotoxic psychiatric drugs, and heal. I pray you will some day be able “to live a drug free life.”

    But I will agree, withdrawal from the psychiatric neurotoxins likely takes years, and should NOT be done cold turkey, or quickly. Psychiatrists who think that’s a good idea, are just plain stupid.

    But, then again, they all claim ignorance of the fact that their antipsychotics can create “psychosis” and “hallucinations” – the positive symptoms of “schizophrenia” – via anticholinergic toxidrome. And they also deny their neuroleptics can create the negative symptoms of “schizophrenia,” via neuroleptic induced deficit disorder.

  • Yes, I survived 14 distinctly different psychiatric attempted murders, all via various anticholinergic toxidrome poisonings, according to my medical records and research. So, I too, say thank you to Jesus, for dying for my sins.

    I too, have a love cat. Not to mention my former dog – whose been being cared for by my brother for the past 9 years – has recently moved close to me again. That dog is now almost 19 years old! A “gaga,” as my young children used to call their dog, doesn’t live that long, without a lot of loving. And he’s still doing relatively well. He loves our regular walks in the woods, and is still so cute, as his little ears flap up and down, while he walks.

    Definitely, pets provide infinitely more joy – which is an effective form of “grief support” – than those attempting murdering, greed only inspired, thieving and attempted thieving psychological and psychiatric industries.

    No need for further funding of research into the blatantly obvious, psychologists and psychiatrists. And if you’d stop poisoning us, and attempting to steal from us – under your “omnipotent moral busy body,” ‘delusions of grandeur’ that you’re ‘helping us,’ while in reality only trying to enrich yourselves and your industries – you’d be much more ‘helpful.’ As opposed to what your industries are today, which is downright harmful.

  • Yes, rebel, I’ve noticed on MiA, that there is a need to attempt to educate the “mental health professionals” with a ton of information, that is blatantly obvious. Or, in other words, known to the rest of the population, as common sense.

    I even had a non-personally chosen, lunatic psychiatrist, who had ‘delusions of grandeur’ that she’d given me a “test,” that “proved you have millions of voices.” My response to her, since I didn’t have “millions of voices,” was “Wow, you’d think I know.” The other doctors literally had to hold that psychiatrist back, to prevent her from physically attacking me.

    It’s sad too many of the psychiatrists seemingly have “delusions of grandeur,” that common sense is the same thing as “millions of voices.” And they’re all so deluded by their own DSM “bible,” and their unjustly being given the right to play judge, jury, and executioner to all humans, to repent and pay for their crimes.

    How does any decent government ever rationalize giving this undeserved power to any one profession? None should.

    Life is about love, pets are about love. Psychiatry and psychology are about making money, not about love. So, of course, pets are more effective for grief support, than psychology and psychiatry, who only care about making money for themselves.

  • Many thanks for your honest portrayal of the systemic crimes of psychiatry, Peter. I couldn’t agree more that forced psychiatric treatment needs to be outlawed, worldwide. But I will say, I can’t necessarily agree with this statement:

    “You might need psychotherapy to help you get to the root of what it is or was that trapped you on psychiatric drugs.”

    Since many psychologists worship/bill from the psychiatric DSM “bible,” and tend to work in partnership with psychiatrists. At least in my case, it was a psychologist who misdiagnosed the common symptoms of antidepressant discontinuation syndrome as “bipolar,” then forced me to be anticholinergic toxidrome poisoned by a psychiatrist. And I even had the misfortune of having to deal with another criminal psychologist, who wanted to steal everything from me, because my work “too truthfully” depicts the truth about psychiatry’s iatrogenic bipolar epidemic.

  • “’Questions about traumatic experiences are deeply personal. And while perhaps well-intentioned, asking patients to disclose potentially painful and distressing experiences with no follow-up can cause more harm,’ she writes. ‘A key tenet of public health and medical ethics is that screening without readily available and accessible evidence-based interventions, let alone a compassionate conversation, is unethical.’”

    I couldn’t agree more. But this problem is a systemic problem, based on a flaw in the DSM itself.

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

    Since no DSM biller/doctor/”mental health professional” may ever bill any insurance company for ever helping any child abuse or rape survivor, unless they first misdiagnose them with one of the “invalid” DSM disorders.

    https://www.nimh.nih.gov/about/directors/thomas-insel/blog/2013/transforming-diagnosis

    And this particular flaw in the DSM has resulted in the “mental health” industries, systemically, turning themselves into primarily child abuse covering up – pedophile aiding, abetting, and empowering – industries. And this problem with the psychological and psychiatric industries, et al has been a problem for a long time.

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

    And this “dirty little secret of the two original educated professions,” “partnership” – between the medical/”mental health”/social worker industries and the religions – has turned the bishops and pastors of my childhood religion into systemic child abuse cover uppers, too.

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

    And, most definitely, this problem is not just destroying individuals, it’s destroying our entire country, and the world.

    https://community.healthimpactnews.com/topic/4576/america-1-in-child-sex-trafficking-and-pedophilia-cps-and-foster-care-are-the-pipelines

    I do understand this multibillion dollar, systemic child abuse and rape covering up, medical/religious “partnership” is a hard business for the doctors, “mental health” workers, pastors, and bishops – many of whom are systemically profiteering off of covering up child abuse and rape on a massive societal scale – to end. But, truly, we do need an end to “the dirty little secret of the two original educated professions.”

  • I’m listening to the podcast, as I write. And I’m glad at least one in the Peterson family is speaking out against big Pharma’s “cures.” Thank you, Mikhailia.

    As to diet, which rebel discussed. I’m guessing the fact that I did stick to a low carb diet, and I refused to stop my regular moderate exercise routine, as was recommended by my insane “mental health” workers, was wise.

    These common sense based behaviors did likely assist me in surviving my psychologist’s and psychiatrists’ extremely bad advise, and their neurotoxic drugs.

  • Thank you for sharing this interesting alternative to mainstream psychiatry’s and psychology’s – primarily child abuse covering up – stigmatize and neurotoxic poisoning crimes, Kerry. Truly, trauma informed care is most definitely needed, given the fact that over 80% of the “mental health” workers’ clients, are child abuse survivors today.

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

    And I totally agree, “congratulations to anyone who is willing to take the risks to talk about the hard stuff.” But, based upon my experience, that’s 100% the opposite of what my “mental health” workers did. The abuse of my child was initially covered up, based upon lies from a Lutheran pastor, by a misdiagnosing Lutheran psychologist, according to her medical records, and her DSM-IV-TR. And once the medical evidence of the abuse of my four year old child was finally handed over, a lunatic psychiatrist told me the best way to help a healing child, who’d been abused four years prior, was to neurotoxic poison him. WTF!

    Definitely, good alternatives to today’s, systemic child abuse covering up, and child abusing, “mental health” industries are needed, and EMDR sounds like an interesting alternative. However, it’s just probably best done by someone – other than those who’ve already betrayed child abuse survivors, by DSM design, on a massive societal scale – like too many of the psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, and other DSM “bible” thumpers, have done.

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

  • “Psychiatrization is highly complex, diverse, and global. It involves various protagonists, and its effects are potentially harmful to individuals, to societies, and to public healthcare.”

    I totally agree, “Interdisciplinary Research [is/was, long ago] Needed on the Risks of Psychiatrization.”

    Especially since the psychiatrists and psychologists believe force drugging people with drug classes – like the antidepressants and antipsychotics, which can create anticholinergic toxidrome, which mimics the symptoms of their made up, but “invalid,” DSM disorders – is NOT “appropriate medical care.”

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

    Our, seemingly pedophile controlled, governments and religions were dumber than dirt, to “partner with,” and give unchecked power to the systemic child abuse covering up, psychiatric and psychological professions.

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

    Or perhaps, our governments, banking, legal, and religious industries could be described as pure evil, for putting unchecked power in the hands of millions of scientific fraud based “mental health professionals.” Who, since most are medically untrained – thus are ignorant about the common adverse and withdrawal symptoms of the psych drugs – function as the “omnipotent moral busy bodies,” about whom C. S. Lewis forewarned us.

    Indeed, I agree with rebel, that those of us here are the “canaries in the coal mine,” warning others about the systemic crimes of the “powers that should not be.”

  • Thank you, Gail, for doing research into the validity of groups like the Hearing Voices groups. I have no doubt such mutually respectful groups will benefit “voice hearers” infinitely more than any so called “mental health professional,” who is obsessed with drugging people who don’t even hear “voices” – onto the anticholinergic drugs, like the antidepressants and/or antipsychotics, which can create “voices” – via anticholinergic toxidrome.

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

    I couldn’t agree more, the mainstream, non-medically trained, psychological profession have been led wildly astray, by the incompetent psychiatric leaders, and their “invalid” DSM. But I will say, even psychiatrists do seem to have also been led wildly astray by the pharmaceutical industry; due to the psychiatric profession’s seemingly insatiable greed, DSM fraud, and complete and total lack of ethics.

    I do so hope some American psychologists will, at some point, distance themselves from the criminal American psychiatric industry. Thanks for doing research into alternatives to this criminal industry.

  • I do think James Davies sees the big picture. And the old “opium for the people” has, indeed, “partnered with” the new “opium for the people.” I guess the primary difference is the old “opium for the people” trusted in God, or an Intelligent Designer. Whereas the new “opium for the people” trusts solely in Pharmakia, which is a very anti-Holy Bible belief system.

    I’m not sure what else to say, other than to congratulate our Holy Spirit blaspheming, scientific fraud based, “mental health professions” for “presiding over the worst outcomes in our health care system.” And maybe a little reminder to both the Pharmakia trusting medical and religious industries, that trusting in God may be wiser than trusting in “fierce Pharma,” and its brainwashed, failed followers.

  • I agree, it’s shameful that medical harm is the “third leading cause of death in the United States,” if not the number one cause of death.

    http://www.webdc.com/pdfs/deathbymedicine.pdf

    Especially given the fact that the former head of the NIMH has confessed that the psychiatrists – and other doctors – are killing “8 million,” every year, world wide, with their “invalid” DSM disorders; and, no doubt, neurotoxic psych drugs.

    https://www.nimh.nih.gov/about/directors/thomas-insel/blog/2015/mortality-and-mental-disorders
    https://www.nimh.nih.gov/about/directors/thomas-insel/blog/2013/transforming-diagnosis

    And, those of us here know that – at least the two “most serious” – of the psychiatric DSM disorders are NOT “real,” valid illnesses. Since we know the ADHD drugs and antidepressants can create the “bipolar” symptoms. Plus we know the “schizophrenia” treatments can create the positive symptoms of “schizophrenia,” via anticholinergic toxidrome; as well as creating the negative symptoms of “schizophrenia,” via neuroleptic induced deficit syndrome.

    Thank you for sharing your story, Christian. It sounds like you’ve largely led the life my young, over-achieving, gay, but not OCD, son would like to live. Hopefully, he some day will realize the value of his mothers’ artwork, medical research, and truth telling.

    But it only took my son about six months into the work force, prior to him sending me a lovely, handwritten letter, thanking me for my mothering skills. And he is a really bright and talented young man. So I hope, some day, he chooses to honor his mother, in a similar manner, to how you’ve chosen to honor your mother.

    Also, let’s hope and pray the medical industry cleans up their act, at some point. And in the meantime, people should garner insight into the fact that it’s unwise to “trust your doctor” today … unfortunately.

  • Thank you, as alway, Peter, for your assistance in trying to help those who were conned by psychiatrists, psychologists, and the other DSM “bible” worshippers.

    Just an FYI, neither this link:

    nor this link:

    works, at least not on my computer.

  • This is so typical of both the psychiatric researchers and practitioners. They just can’t accept the truth, and give up their delusional belief in the “genetic” etiology of their DSM disorders and symptoms.

    “Despite finding no link between suicide and genetics,” the researchers claim the opposite, that suicide “has a prominent genetic component.”

    “Despite their results finding that no genetic markers for suicide appear to exist, the authors’ conclusion was ‘Larger sample sizes are required to detect moderate effects.'” And they’re alway begging for more bucks.

    I, for one, think every penny our government spent on “invalid” psychiatric research, and the psychiatrists’ iatrogenic illness creating treatments, should be returned, and the psychiatrists properly defunded, and many likely jailed.

    Since all medical doctors, including the psychiatrists, were taught in med school that both the antidepressants and antipsychotics can create “psychosis,” via anticholinergic toxidrome. Yet this very relevant – to all the non-medically trained “mental health,” psychological, therapy, and social workers – way to poison a person, is conveniently – for the psychiatrists – missing from their DSM.

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

    What ever happened to Dr. Thomas Insel’s promise to defund research into the “invalid” DSM disorders? “Lucy, you’ve got some splaining to do.”

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

  • How ironic the woman who wrote “Girl, Interrupted” allowed her son to take a psych drug. “Artist, Interrupted” has been among the titles I’ve considered for my tale. ‘Been there, done that,’ was what came to my mind, as I was reading through your son’s symptoms.

    But do have hope, and give your son hope, since time (and the neuroplasticity of our brains) does heal the psychiatrists’ harms. I’m living proof, I’ve been psych drug free for about twelve years now. And the only adverse effects of the psych drugs I have left are a wiggly ankle when I wake, and brain zaps. And in as much as the brain zaps can still be annoying, I’ve learned to control them, and I can brain zap headaches away with them in a NY second.

    And, indeed, the psychiatrists do need to learn that – at least a percentage of the population – is allergic to their anticholinergic drugs. Thanks for sharing your son’s harrowing experience, Lisa.

  • Thank you so much for writing this, Christine. As I was reading about Bill’s abusive behavior, it gave me hope that it will be possible for me to synopsize my own story, of very similar abuse.

    “Bill’s” behavior was very similar to the behavior of my former pastor – who ultimately had me misdiagnosed and drugged, based upon his own odd delusions, according to my medical records. I’d say “Bill,” and my former pastor, are both psychopaths.

    And I agree with others here, who say such abusers are the problem. As opposed to those of us who were gaslighted by an insane psychopath, then neurotoxic poisoned, by “mental health professionals,” who deny such abuse happens.

    I did finally have to leave that pastor’s church, but over 200 people also left that church the same year – according to friends, due to that pastor’s subsequent odd behavior. And that pastor has now had three major exoduses from his church, according to trend reports.

    I did also need to leave my former religion all together, due to their systemic “partnership” with the DSM “bible” believers. Since I’m not a believer in the DSM “bible,” and believe the Holy Bible has a great deal more wisdom to be found within it, than the psychiatrists’ “invalid” “bible.”

    Again, thanks for sharing your story.

  • Thank you for the book review, Jan. The book sounds interesting, especially for a fellow artist working on her memoir. I started working with a group of female literary artists not long ago, since I’m a visual artist, with a story, rather than one who considers herself a writer. So I felt I needed some insight and feedback from actual literary artists.

    I did get some very good feedback and encouragement from the group. I guess they don’t mind when a very well researched person, whose found the medical proof of the iatrogenic etiology of “schizophrenia,” so does have a story, joins their group. And there was one other “bipolar” stigmatized person in the group, who I was able to direct to MiA and “Anatomy of an Epidemic.”

    Some within the group did question my extensive use of footnotes. However, I feel they’re necessary when discussing such complex topics, and others within the group agreed.

    But my experience with psychologists is that they want to control others and “maintain the status quo.” And since my artwork visually documents the 14 attempted murders of me, all via egregious anticholinergic toxidrome poisonings, of which I have the medical proof. And these attempted murders were intended to cover up easily recognize malpractice, and the medical evidence of the abuse of my child, according to my family’s medical records.

    Plus I was later handed over a conservatorship contract, under the disingenuous guise of an “art manager” contract. By a psychologist who wanted to steal all profits from my artwork, my work, my story, and all my money. I will ask, how likely would you be to write a book review for a person who can destroy the scientific validity of your industry’s “sacred symbol,” who has also only dealt with criminal child abuse covering up and attempted thieving psychologists and psychiatrists? I doubt you would.

    Talk about a lady whose been put into a “Catch-22.” Ironically, in part, by a doctor who called himself, “Dr. 22.” But I will say, God’s a comedian, who does inspire interesting stories.

  • Okay, yes I did think one looked like a knife, too. But I will say people’s reactions to my imperfect “crazy art” are quite extreme and concerning, too. Especially since when the medical truth about my work is described, in connection with my work, it largely points out that chaos in the brain, caused by the psych drugs, does equate to chaos on the canvas.

    So my work turns the systemic child abuse covering up psychologists of my childhood religion who forced or tried to trick me into working with them, and their systemic child abuse covering up pastors, into delusions of grandeur fill lunatics. Who think I will hand all profits from my work, my work, my story, and all my money, over to them, via a classic thievery and conservatorship contract. FY, I said to them. Although, of course, in a much more polite manner.

    But I will say, it’s a shame my childhood religion doesn’t fund any support of the Spirit led visual artists of their religion, and instead, an enormous church has glaringly empty walls. While it hypocritically claims to support “the arts.” WTF?

    But I, too, have a heart for the native Americans. And an interesting tale about a partially German girl, being one of the first females working in the appliance business, with a bunch of old curmudgeons, near Skokie, IL. Initially, they considered me and our female German boss, who brought me into the business, as their “Ware-Wolf.” But within six months, I was able to turn my co-workers into my very kind and generous Chicago Jewish dads.

  • And, make no mistake, I have had to recommend Whitaker’s “Anatomy” to Catholic parents, of a child abuse survivor who was misdiagnosed as “depressed.” Then that child abuse survivor was turned into a “bipolar” stigmatized person as well. So this is a systemic “dirty little secret” of many, if not all, of the mainstream religions, and their so called “mental health” and “social” workers.

  • I was misdiagnosed with “depression caused by self,” despite telling a psychologist I was not depressed. But I did explain to her that I was dealing with bullying by a pastor, whose pension fund had been managed by my father for years, who denied my innocent child a baptism three times, on the morning of 9/11/2001. She then changed her misdiagnosis to “bipolar.”

    Both 9/11/2001 and the bullying, and my entire identity, were then dismissed as “irrelevant to reality,” (according to medical records) in regards to a potential cause of my legitimate concern. Let’s be real, 9/11/2001 was a distressing event for the entire world. And most certainly it wasn’t caused by a “chemical imbalance” in my brain alone, as that lunatic psychologist tried to tell me years later, when I was picking up her medical records.

    So I’m quite certain it is that some psychologists are outright blaming and lying to their patients, and their families, that is the problem. Especially, since psychologists are not medically trained. And none of the psychologists – or other doctors – I encountered were intelligent enough to even know that the ‘brain zaps’ and a spiritual dream I went in questioning in late 2001, are common symptoms of antidepressant discontinuation syndrome, until 2005.

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

    Symptoms that should NOT have been misdiagnosed as “bipolar,” even according to their DSM-IV-TR “bible.”

    “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.”

    And what a sign of total corruption, that psychiatrists took that disclaimer OUT of their DSM5 “bible,” due to Robert Whitaker pointing out their ADHD drug and antidepressant induced iatrogenic “bipolar epidemic.” Since this will only result in more and more massive societal “mental health” industry malpractice.

    https://www.alternet.org/2010/04/are_prozac_and_other_psychiatric_drugs_causing_the_astonishing_rise_of_mental_illness_in_america/

    I’m quite certain a big problem with the psychiatric industry is that they have a bunch of non-medically trained, and DSM misinformed, people – psychologists, therapists, social workers, et al – misdiagnosing the common adverse effects of the psych drugs, then shipping people to the psychiatrists.

    Non-medically trained people should not be “diagnosing” anyone, with anything. Especially since the psychiatric DSM “bible” was debunked as “invalid” in 2013.

    https://www.nimh.nih.gov/about/directors/thomas-insel/blog/2013/transforming-diagnosis

    I was eventually handed over the medical evidence of why that pastor was bullying me. His “soul mate,” and possibly also that pastor, had sexually assaulted my other child. I was able to scare the school, that had a pedophile on their school board, and where some of the abuse likely happened, into closing forever – on, of all days, 6.6.06.

    But I’ve since learned, through extensive research, that covering up child abuse and rape – historically and today – is the number one actual societal function of the “mental health” industries, and this is all by DSM design.

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

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

    And the systemic pedophile aiding, abetting, and empowering “mental health” system has turned – via a faustian medical/religious “partnership” – the pastors, bishops, and other employees of my childhood religion, into systemic, unrepentant, child abuse covering up criminals, too.

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

    And we all now live in a “pedophile empire,” many thanks to this systemic “dirty little secret of the two original educated professions.”

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

    I do so hope to see an end to this pedophile empowering “dirty little secret” soon, since it’s destroying our entire country, psychologists, psychiatrists, pastors, and bishops.

    But I do know that there are some “delusions of grandeur”-filled psychologists and pastors, who want to “maintain the status quo.” That are handing out conservatorship contracts, under the guise of “art manager” contracts. In the hopes of stealing from people, rather than repenting, changing from their criminal ways, and utilizing their insurance for what it is intended.

    The criminality and lies of the “mental health professions” really seem to have no bounds. But I’m quite certain it is not in our society’s best interest to have systemic child abuse covering up, pedophile empowering, scientific fraud based “mental health” industries anyway. Especially since they are murdering “8 million” innocent people EVERY year, with their “invalid” DSM disorders, and neurotoxic psychiatric drugs.

    https://www.nimh.nih.gov/about/directors/thomas-insel/blog/2015/mortality-and-mental-disorders

    By the way, child abuse survivors can heal and thrive. If one can keep one’s child away from systemic child abuse covering up, “mental health” and social workers. Many of whom bizarrely believe the best way to help an already healing child abuse survivor is to neurotoxic poison him.

    Oh, and the “mental health” system does also need to garner insight into the fact that both the antidepressants and antipsychotics can create “psychosis,” via anticholinergic toxidrome. A medically known way to poison a person, that is missing from your “invalid” DSM “bible.” Neuroleptic induced deficit disorder, which looks like the negative symptoms of “schizophrenia” to the “mental health” workers, is also missing from your DSM.

    How long until we may say “goodbye” to both the iatrogenic – not “genetic” – “bipolar” and “schizophrenia” stigmatizations?

  • And, I guess, I will conclude my statement, with what I believe, is the obvious truth. That no industry should ever be given the right to force their treatments, or wares, onto the populous. Since, if any industry is given such a right, they will corrupt themselves absolutely. Which, I believe, is where both psychiatry and psychology, et al, are today.

    And it seems our governments are trying to force all of our medical community into participating in these systemic pharmaceutical crimes, with this whole Covid scamdemic. The decent doctors do need to stand against this, and I thank the decent doctors, who are speaking out against these pharmaceutical industry crimes.

  • Thank you for all you’re doing, Professor Peter C. Gøtzsche, MD. As one who was successfully (sort-of, at least in the end) weaned off over 15 psych drugs. I will say comparing “a two-week taper with a one-week taper” is absurd.

    As one who had long term (over a year) antidepressant withdrawal symptoms misdiagnosed as “bipolar,” resulting in about 9 months worth of extremely inappropriate anticholinergic toxidrome poisonings. Prior to my psychiatrist finally realizing that the non-medically trained psychologist, who he’d gotten all his misinformation about me, had misdiagnosed me.

    I will say allowing that psychiatrist to very slowly wean me off his drugs, over another 2 3/4 years. And, I will mention that since the only difference between the positive symptoms of “schizophrenia” and anticholinergic toxidrome, is one will be made “hyperactive,” not “inactive.” The fact that my calendar schedule was very full, as was that psychiatrists’, the taper likely worked. Because we were both too busy to meet as soon as he requested.

    But I will say, 20 years later, I do still have the common adverse withdrawal symptom of the antidepressant, “brain zaps,” that brought me to the psychologist in the first place. However, I’ve learned to control them, and I can now “brain zap” any headache away, in a NY second.

    But I couldn’t agree more, “Psychiatry is a madhouse—but not because of the patients.” It’s because the psychiatrists – and their many psychological, therapy, and social worker minion – who don’t know anything about the common adverse and withdrawal effects of the psychiatric drugs. And I’ll ask, what’s “professional” about such ignorance?

    As a former kitchen bath designer, I researched into the pros and cons of the products I sold. To those who could afford the best products, I sold them designs much more beautiful than their wildest dreams. To those who could not afford the best products, I politely and respectfully sold them safe designs, with the less expensive products. Which brought them back over and over again.

    I don’t see anything “professional” about what most of today’s so called “mental health” workers are doing. Since, obviously they didn’t do the research into the products they’re forcing onto innocent others.

  • “What I am proposing is that symptom management ought to be considered a starting point, not an end point, to treatment.”

    So true, and the same can be said for all the DSM disorders, including the ones where therapists force people onto the psych drugs, that create the symptoms of their “serious DSM disorders.”

    https://www.alternet.org/2010/04/are_prozac_and_other_psychiatric_drugs_causing_the_astonishing_rise_of_mental_illness_in_america/
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Toxidrome
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Neuroleptic-induced_deficit_syndrome

    I will agree, the “mental health” workers’ desire to “manage symptoms” – while ignoring, dismissing, and actually calling “fictional,” the real life concerns of their clients’ – is one of the biggest problems with both the psychological and psychiatric industries.

    And ultimately, such ungodly disrespectful maltreatment, rendered almost all “mental health” workers – except those who speak out honestly against the system – too stupid for me, personally, to deal with, or respect.

  • “Social Stigma Affects Young People’s Experiences of Hearing Voices.” Yes, most of those psychologists and psychiatrists are obsessed with “voices.” And they love to stigmatize people, who don’t even have “voices,” then put them on the antidepressants and/or antipsychotics. Two drug classes, that all doctors are taught in med school, can create “voices” – aka “psychosis” – via anticholinergic toxidrome.

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

    But there is a solution to this problem. Especially given the fact that, in some cultures, those who hear “voices” are considered gifted, and helped to become healers, or shaman. We should make it illegal for the “voices” obsessed, Western DSM deluded psychological and psychiatric industries, to stigmatize “voice” hearers – or those they delude themselves into believing are “voice” hearers – with their “invalid” DSM disorders. And their forced drugging of people should be made illegal, of course.

    https://www.nimh.nih.gov/about/directors/thomas-insel/blog/2013/transforming-diagnosis

    Especially since there’s really no difference between stigmatizing a person, and defaming a person. And since defaming a person is illegal, so too should be stigmatizing a person.

  • “I needed to feel that our closeness had manifested itself as some kind of quantum entanglement, so that her spirit was speaking to mine. Perhaps I needed to feel my loss was something extraordinary.”

    When I was healing from my anticholinergic toxidrome induced “voices,” and going through my drug withdrawal induced “super sensitivity manic psychosis,” which functioned as an awakening to my dreams. An ethical pastor told me “some people can’t pray in private.” And, given the number of (Holy Spirit blaspheming) “mental health” workers, who mistakenly thought I was not sleeping, and “keeping” my “child up late at night studying,” which I wasn’t doing. I’d say it’s possible some people can’t dream in private either.

    There are those who believe in the collective unconscious, or the concept that “we are one in the Spirit one in the Lord.” And my childhood church’s mission statement is, “Go out and get everyone else with love and the word of God,” which is supposedly what my subconscious self did, according to the story of my dreams.

    Who knows? Maybe there is some kind of quantum entanglement between us humans. I’m a Chagall fan, because his work largely describes my life and dreams, as if I were one of his muses. Chagall’s work is about a love story amongst all of humanity, as is the story of my dreams. Chagall was a Jew, who survived the Nazi psychiatric holocaust of the Jews. I survived today’s – all Western civilization – psychiatric holocaust. We’re both artists, and I am a woman “with a VERY religious name to the Jews.” So, whose to say, it’s impossible that Chagall and I aren’t friends within a collective unconscious? Plus, I can largely tell my life’s story in the lyrics of music, as if I were a muse for musicians. All bizarre, I agree, but not bothersome for me. It’s just embarrassing for the scientifically “invalid” “mental health” workers, who want to keep all their sins private.

    “Sister Christian,” and I’ve done a lot of “motorin'”
    “Material Girl,” oh the mistakes we made as a young person
    “We are the champions,” my friends, since we have the truth on our side
    “She’s a brick house,” I owned a brick house (5 flat) in Chicago
    “Up on the roof,” it had a very nice roof top deck, with a beautiful view of Chicago
    “Putting on the Ritz,” which is where I got married
    “Dream weaver,” with a bunch of train wreck stories, since that’s the most common cause of death on both sides of my family
    “Runaway Train,” how one feels after being railroaded by “mental health” workers
    “Russian roulette is not the same without a gun,” right psychiatrists?
    “The great escape,” thankfully I did escape
    “What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger,” and a lot of research allows one to find the medical proof of the iatrogenic etiology of the “sacred symbol of psychiatry,” which is embarrassing for the systemic child abuse covering up “mental health” workers.
    “Killing me softly,” “strumming my pain with his fingers, singing my life with his words…”

    The list of songs that seemingly describes the story of my life and dreams goes on and on. How dare a Christian woman believes in God, and that there’s something more than just the material world. And it is a story, it’s just not a “credible fictional story,” as my idiot psychiatrist believed.

    Indeed, “Reshaping Our Understanding of ‘Mental Illness’– & Consciousness Itself” is likely a good idea.

  • “we need providers that listen to their patients and treat them like human beings if we are ever to rise to the level of patient-centered care.” Indeed.

    And we most definitely don’t need psychiatrists who do not listen to (and “not believed by doctor”) their patients, and instead get all their misinformation about their clients from child abuse covering up psychologists. Who get all their misinformation about their clients, from child abusing pastors and their pedophile friends, as was my experience, and according to my family’s medical records.

    But God is a bit of a comedian, since all those pastors – who, without ever looking at a person’s work, declare the person to be “w/o work, content and talent” and “irrelevant to reality” – have since been declared “non-essential” and rendered largely “irrelevant to reality.”

    And those asinine psychologists I had to deal with, who do finally bother to look at a person’s work, and conclude “the world might be ready for a Chicago Chagall.” So attempt to steal all profits from a person’s work, and everything else, from an innocent other. By handing over a conservatorship contract, deceptively dressed up as an “art manager” contract.

    Well, they need to learn a little something about Jesus’ theology, since there’s a “trick” to it, according to my intelligent child. As the old adage goes, “when you assume, you make an ass out of you and me.” So those psychologists who assume they may steal from a person, with the goal of making an ass out of that person. Well, if your goal is to make an ass out of me, it’s my right to say no. And instead allow you to be seen as the satanic, child abuse covering up, psychological ass, that you are. “Do to others as you would have them do to you.”

    But it is pretty sad that one may not be a Spirit led, anti-child abuse, advocate in the ELCA churches today. Without being attacked by a child abuse profiteering psychologist, as I was, due to the ELCA’s “partnership” with the systemic child abuse covering up DSM “bible” thumpers. God forbid a former ELCA artist put these words on a painting, “It would be better for them to be thrown into the sea with a millstone tied around their neck than to cause one of these little ones to stumble.”

    I do so hope to see an end to this systemic, child abuse covering up, “dirty little secret of the two original educated professions,” at some point.

  • Create adverse effects with drugs, then come up with new drugs to treat those ADRs. Typical, but truly big Pharma is so criminal, as seemingly is the FDA. Zyprexa is not “safe and effective,” it made me “psychotic,” via anticholinergic toxidrome poisoning.

    And couldn’t limiting ‘the Pleasure of Food Intake’ be considered a form of torture? I know I felt sorry for a guy I ate with, who told me he couldn’t taste anything. Why is eliminating ‘pleasures’ the goal of the medical community?

  • “I dare say that I can diagnose every human with every mental illness—even psychosis, since we all have fixed beliefs that aren’t based in reality.” Yes, and especially since – according to my medical records – my psychologist and psychiatrist believe that all dreams, thoughts, and gut instincts are “psychosis.” Plus, those good old, pathological lying, “holistic Christian talk therapists” believe belief in the Holy Spirit is “psychosis.” And another bizarre belief of my psychologist and psychiatrist, in my opinion, was that they believed – all that worldwide distress caused by 9/11/2001, just after 9/11 – was distress caused by a “chemical imbalance” in my brain alone. Who are the crazy people?

    Thank you, as always, Lawrence, for speaking the truth about the insane beliefs of way too many of the DSM “bible” thumping “mental health” workers’.

  • As an expert by experience, and close to 15 years of research now. I totally agree that withdrawal from the neuroleptics can result in a drug withdrawal induced “super sensitivity manic psychosis” – even if weaned from the drugs VERY slowly (over 3 years, after only being severely anticholinergic toxidrome poisoned for six months).

    But, at least in my case, that drug withdrawal induced “manic psychosis” was infinitely less bothersome to me, than the anticholinergic toxidrome induced “psychosis,” that I’d experienced while on the antipsychotics. Being “manic” just felt like having ‘God speed.’ And the “psychosis” aspect merely functioned as an awakening to my dreams, which culminated in a ‘born again’ type story.

    I did deal with two drug withdrawal induced “super sensitivity manic psychoses,” since I was weaned off the drugs twice. Each lasted for approximately 3 months. The first was misdiagnosed as a “return of symptoms” during an unneeded hospital stay, and happened approximately 6 months after being weaned from all drugs. The second happened a full 2 1/2 years after, again, being weaned off all drugs.

    During that hospital stay, the same doctor who “snowed” me in the first hospital, met me at a different hospital, despite her NOT being a psychiatrist that I ever chose to hire. I was able to embarrass and convince all the psychiatrists-in-training with her, that I didn’t think she even spoke English. So I was only minimally drugged, and let out without any drugs, nor need for follow up care. And the “bipolar” misdiagnosis was downgraded to an “adjustment disorder” diagnosis. But I have had no other “manic psychoses,” nor psychiatric problems, in the past 10 years.

    As to other withdrawal effects I experienced, I was compelled to bang my head into my pillow, for a month or so. I did end up with a mild case of tardive diskynesia, a wiggly ankle when I wake many mornings, which still exists 10 years later. I do also still have the antidepressant withdrawal induced ‘brain zaps,’ which were originally misdiagnosed as “bipolar,” almost 20 years ago. Oh, I had a “grimace,” I thought of it as my ‘smiling disease,’ that lasted for maybe three months. There were also some odd sexual side effects, but my understanding is that sex is related to the dopaminergic system, so this isn’t too surprising. And in as much as the antipsychotics cause weight gain. A drug withdrawal induced “mania,” if properly directed towards exercise and other productive endeavors, as opposed to an unneeded confinement in a hospital, results in weight loss and lots of productivity.

    I can only speak to my experience, but do know others who’ve dealt with similar benign – or even enlightening – drug withdrawal experiences, like mine. And I really think the primary reason psychiatrists are afraid of weaning people off their drugs has more to do with their income earning potential, power, and reputation; than what’s actually best for their clients.

    As to, “We have an opportunity now to listen and respond to service users.” I have no doubt this goes for both psychologists and psychiatrists. Since I’ve never met any “mental health” worker who has ever listened to, “believed” and heard, a word I’ve ever said, except here on MiA.

    And I will say the systemic child abuse cover uppers of the psychological industry, are just as criminal as the systemic child abuse cover uppers of the psychiatric industry. And your “partnership” with my childhood religion, has turned the pastors and bishops of my childhood religion into systemic child abuse cover uppers, too.

    And since I don’t want to live in a “pedophile empire.”

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

    Which, of course, is where we all find ourselves living, when systemic child abuse covering up psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, et al, and religious leaders “partner” up. And create a multibillion dollar, pedophile empowerment, group of scientifically “invalid,” systemic child abuse covering up “mental health” industries. And it’s all by DSM design.

    Real change is needed. And this includes both the psychological and psychiatric industries, not to mention the religions, getting out of the illegal child abuse covering up, pedophile and child sex trafficker protecting, business.

  • It’s truly sick and disgusting that a person who, “established the Nordic Cochrane Centre in 1993,” and, “having developed several of the methods Cochrane use,” was so defamed and abused.

    But you do now know how the criminal psychiatric, psychological industries, et al treat most their – sometimes very respectable – patients. And most definitely, this behavior of the psychiatric and psychological systems is morally repugnant behavior.

    “The fact that patients are organising themselves in survivor groups and various withdrawal-related initiatives around the world is a clear sign that the psychiatric guild ignores them.” Indeed, the psychiatric industries defame and ignore us, then when confronted with their own delusions about us, that they illegally got from others initially. They have the gall to literally declare a person’s entire life to be “a credible fictional story.”

    How absurd, insane, and downright criminal, the psychiatric and psychological industries actually are. Thank you so much for your truth telling, Dr. Gøtzsche. I cannot tell you how important your work, and your truth telling is. Thank you.

  • I think the “mental health” workers, generally, are unaware of the fact that artists need to create a portfolio, prior to marketing their work. And my “mental health” workers were TOTALLY ignorant of how long it takes to create artwork. (My medical records incorrectly state that ‘work that previously took weeks, could now be done in days.’ I have paintings that I have worked on for many months and years, not days and weeks. Oil paint takes a long time to dry between layers, dah.)

    Plus, those lazy and greedy hospital psychiatrists I dealt with, who didn’t bother to even speak with their clients, prior to “snowing” them. Well, I had a criminal one of them (her partner in crime was eventually convicted by the FBI). She never even bothered to ask me what I did. Instead, she must have illegally gone into my private finances, and concluded I was “unemployed,” since I would never have told her I was “unemployed.” Because I was a very active volunteer, mother, and artist working on my portfolio, who’d already paid for her half of her family home.

    But given the number of artists, who’ve been attacked by “mental health” system, that blog on this website. It certainly seems clear to me that the “mental health” industry does target the artists. And, like you, my artwork does visually describe my experience with the “mental health” industry, specifically their iatrogenic “bipolar epidemic.”

    https://www.alternet.org/2010/04/are_prozac_and_other_psychiatric_drugs_causing_the_astonishing_rise_of_mental_illness_in_america/

    But once my second, and primary, psychiatrist finally bothered to actually look at my work. He described it as “insightful” and “work of smart female.” And I was weaned me off his neurotoxins.

    When I had a show of my work years later, with the truth attached to it. My work was so “too truthful” for a psychologist (who knew something about art, and considered me to be a “Chicago Chagall”). He actually tried to steal all profits from my work, and everything from me, with a conservatorship contract, disingenuously handed over under the guise of an “art manager” contract. Incorrectly assuming ass, I’m NOT signing that contract!

    I completely understand your anger, Emily, I was angry too. But the anger does somewhat subside over time. Especially since we have the science on our side. In case you don’t know, both the positive and negative symptoms of “schizophrenia” can be created with the “schizophrenia treatments,” the antipsychotics (aka neuroleptics).

    The ‘psychosis’ and ‘hallucinations’ can be created via anticholinergic toxidrome. And all that unwanted extra sleep, and the other “negative symptoms of schizophrenia,” can be created via neuroleptic induced deficit syndrome.

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

    In other words, the two “most serious” DSM disorders are iatrogenic illnesses, created with the psychiatric drugs. So I have no doubt you – and all – can heal from psychiatry’s iatrogenic, not “genetic,” SMIs. But I will forewarn you about a possible drug withdrawal induced ‘super sensitivity manic psychosis.’

    If you aren’t weaned from the depression drugs, neuroleptics, and “mood stabilizers” slowly enough, and even if you may have been. You can still become ‘manic,’ and in my case possibly mildly ‘psychotic.’ At least if you believe the God denying, Holy Spirit blaspheming “mental health” system. Who think a ‘born again’ experience equates to a ‘psychotic’ experience.

    I can’t say what your personal drug withdrawal experience will be like. But do explain to your closest family or friends, that being weaned from the psych drugs can create symptoms, that psychiatrists, psychologists, and other doctors will often misdiagnose as “a return of symptoms.”

    And do know this can happen many months, or even years, after being taken off the psych drugs. In my case, my first drug withdrawal induced “manic psychosis” happened 6 months after being weaned from the drugs. My second one happened 2 1/2 years after being weaned from the drugs.

    But I’ve been drug free for 12 years now, and not had any other issues. Not to mention I’ve gotten the head of family medicine at one of the most prestigious American hospitals to take the (non-medically trained) psychological misdiagnosis off my medical records. So you, too, I have no doubt can heal, my dear Emily.

    By the way, your art beautifully displays the horror and grayness of the psychiatric industry’s systemic crimes. But I’m curious, what do the dark images that are seemingly coming out of, or behind, your head represent?

  • The problem with this issue is that I’m pretty certain I’m not the only one here who initially had the common odd, adverse, and withdrawal symptoms of an antidepressant misdiagnosed by a non-medically trained psychotherapist. Thankfully, once she said I no longer needed to see her, and her systemic child abuse covering up lies to my psychiatrist ended. My psychiatrist concluded she’d misdiagnosed me, and he started slowly weaning me off his drugs. And his belief I was misdiagnosed by the psychotherapist, is literally written into my former psychiatrist’s medical records.

    But this does mean we do need all the psychologists, social workers, and other “mental health” workers to either be properly medically educated, in regards to the common adverse and withdrawal effects of the antidepressants, and other psych drugs, of which the psychiatrists are still largely claiming to be ignorant. And this conundrum does make the proper education of the psychotherapists, and other “mental health” workers, nearly impossible, to this day.

    Plus I will ask, why would any person with a brain in their head, ever trust a psychotherapist to assist them in weaning off the psych drugs, when it was a psychotherapist who initially misdiagnosed them, and forced them to be massively psychiatrically neurotoxic poisoned in the first place?

    We won’t, ever again, once was too much. But we will point out the scientific fraud, and systemic child abuse covering up, and iatrogenic illness creating, crimes of the “invalid” “mental health professionals,” which are all by DSM design.

    Not to be rude, Peter, but why do the systemic child abuse covering up American psychotherapy industry, who still today buy almost 100% into psychiatry’s “invalid” DSM, deserve a second chance, without repentance? Unless they completely disavow psychiatry’s DSM, and end their evil ways? Until such happens, I don’t think any of them deserve a third chance.

    Since repentance, and changing from one’s evil ways, is what is required for forgiveness, according to God and Jesus. It’s also how we maintain a civil an just society. I think that’s why a lot of the British psychologists are working to speak out against the evils of the psychiatrists and big Pharma.

    Yet the majority of American psychologists are still just trying to steal from those they – or other psychologists – have committed malpractice against, via fraud based conservator contracts, and lies, to “maintain the status quo.”

    When the psychological profession agreed to be the systemic child abuse cover uppers for their American religions, and turned the bishops of their religions into a bunch of systemic unrepentant child abuse cover uppers too, as happened with my former religion.

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

    I have no doubt that those psychologists, psychiatrists, pastors, and bishops – who entered into this faustian deal – need to repent, and end their systemic crimes. Since their systemic child abuse covering up, and also – obviously hand in hand, systemic pedophile aiding, abetting, and empowering crimes – are destroying our country from within. Since we all now live 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
    https://community.healthimpactnews.com/topic/4576/america-1-in-child-sex-trafficking-and-pedophilia-cps-and-foster-care-are-the-pipelines

    All I can say is, what a sick and disgusting shame it is that the formerly respectable religious and medical industries entered into this shameful “dirty little secret of the two original educated professions.”

  • “Spirituality is an integral part of humanity, and it is wrong for it to be dismissed as a psychiatric disorder.” I couldn’t agree more, Lauren. And I do know of a lot of people, myself included, who had spiritual experiences misdiagnosed as psychiatric disorders.

    And, in my humble opinion, this is a particularly pernicious and hypocritical – systemic problem of the “mental health professions.” Since the ladies in my childhood church did confess to me that the church had “partnered” with the DSM “bible” thumpers. A couple of pastors of a different religion did confess to me about this “dirty little secret of the two original educated professions.” And I have medical evidence that a supposed “holistic Christian talk therapist,” of my childhood religion, was instead, a Holy Spirit blasphemer. Which is the “only unforgivable sin” within the entire Holy Bible.

    So I thank you, Lauren, for pointing out this systemic problem with the “mental health professions.” And I do so hope the “mental health professionals” will rethink their “right” to blasphemy the Holy Spirit, never bother to repent, change from their evil (systemic child abuse covering up) ways, and utilize their malpractice insurance for what it is intended.

  • “Here, spectators reflected on experiences of discomfort related to confronting privilege, seeing what one has been “taught not to see,” and understanding theater as a prompt for action.”

    Us artists do record history, which is what we were taught to do in art school. And I know first hand, it is discomforting for the paternalistic – to the point of being misogynistic – psychologist, psychiatric, and pastoral “partners,” when “what one has been ‘taught not to see,'” is visually documented.

    God forbid, write this quote, from the real Bible, in a painting. “It would be better for him if a millstone were hung around his neck, and he were thrown into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little ones.”

    To the contrary, what we’re “taught not to see” – and what both the psychological and psychiatric industries have been profiteering off of covering up for, I think over a century – is child abuse, pedophilia, and the apparently now rapidly expanding child sex trafficking industries.

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

    And, in as much as I do appreciate MiA for covering the systemic child abuse covering up crimes of the psychological and psychiatric industries. I do think the focus of a website, whose primary focus is on reforming psychiatry, should be on focusing on the psychiatric and psychological industries’ systemic child abuse and pedophilia covering up crimes, rather than on issues of racism. Since that’s just distracting people from the real “taught not to see” issue, at hand.

  • I think truth tellers, like Peter, are invaluable. Since people do need to be told the truth about the horrendously adverse and withdrawal effects of the psych drugs. And I believe the medical and pharmaceutical industries, who lie, should be “sued, shunned, and become the social lepers they turn others into with their stigmatizing labels and drugs.”

    I agree, “The truth is dangerous for those benefiting from the lies.” But I believe it is the truth that will set us free, from those sick liars. And we have come a long way in discrediting the psychiatrists.

    Whitaker’s book did a great job pointing out that the ADHD drugs and antidepressants create the “bipolar” symptoms.

    https://www.alternet.org/2010/04/are_prozac_and_other_psychiatric_drugs_causing_the_astonishing_rise_of_mental_illness_in_america/

    And in my medical research, I found the medical proof that both the antidepressants and antipsychotics can make people psychotic, via anticholinergic toxidrome.

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

    Not to mention, the antipsychotics / neuroleptics can also create the negative symptoms of “schizophrenia,” via neuroleptic induced deficit syndrome.

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

    Meaning that the the two “most serious” DSM disorders are iatrogenic illnesses, created with the psychiatric drugs, not “genetic” illnesses.

    And we were able to get the head of NIMH to confess to the “invalidity” of the entire psychiatric DSM “bible” in 2013.

    https://www.nimh.nih.gov/about/directors/thomas-insel/blog/2013/transforming-diagnosis

    We’ve also pointed out that the DSM “bible” is a child abuse covering up “bible,” by design.

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

    And that the primary actual societal function, both historically and today, of both the psychological and psychiatric industries is – indeed – 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/

    Not to mention, the head of the NIMH did confess that “8 million” innocent people are being killed EVERY year, due to the “invalid” DSM disorders, and no doubt, with the psych drugs.

    https://www.nimh.nih.gov/about/directors/thomas-insel/blog/2015/mortality-and-mental-disorders

    And all of this systemic child abuse covering up and murder by the “mental health” system did, of course, also function to aid, abet, and empower the pedophiles and child sex traffickers. So the world now knows we live in a “pedophile empire,” where child sex trafficking is running amok.

    https://www.amazon.com/Pedophilia-Empire-Chapter-Introduction-Disorder-ebook/dp/B0773QHGPT
    https://community.healthimpactnews.com/topic/4576/america-1-in-child-sex-trafficking-and-pedophilia-cps-and-foster-care-are-the-pipelines

    But, if I’m not incorrect, I do believe both the “mental health” industry, and pastors – at least some, or most, of whom have “partnered” with the systemic child abuse covering up “mental health” system- were both declared to be “non-essential” in the insane Covid world, in which we all now find ourselves living.

    Getting the truth out there is a process, and the truth is a bitter pill to swallow. But I do still believe the truth shall set us free. Let’s hope and pray that by getting the truth out there, we may actually admit to the sick reality that “a small group of dominant men” created. So we may actually work to fix our societies’ systemic problems, and bring about a better world some day.

    I cannot thank Peter enough for his “expert” truth speaking.

  • Can someone tell me when smoking and drinking – two legal activities in the US – became “mental illnesses,” requiring a lifetime of drugs, according to the medical community? And who the f-ck do doctors, who make assumptions about and misdiagnose people they do not know, and neurotoxic poison them for the legal activity of smoking cigarettes, think they are?

    Why are doctors, who claim to know nothing about the common adverse effects of the antidepressants – but disingenuously call them “safe smoking cessation meds” – allowed to neurotoxic poison people for behaving in a legal manner? For God’s sake, neither smoking nor drinking watered down wine is a sin in the Holy Bible. So why are these – Holy Bible acceptable behaviors – considered to be “mental illnesses” by the doctors, who believe these legal activities require a lifetime of defamation and neurotoxic poisonings?

    I’m quite certain our governments need to end the “right” of the psychiatrists to force drug people, because they – long ago – turned legal activities into scientific fraud based “lifelong, incurable, genetic mental illnesses.” The reality is doctors and psychiatrists are NOT good “gods.” They are merely the “omnipotent moral busy bodies,” about whom C. S. Lewis forewarned us.

    “Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.”

    And their industry is murdering “8 million” innocent people EVERY year, with their “invalid” DSM disorders and psych drugs.

    https://www.nimh.nih.gov/about/directors/thomas-insel/blog/2013/transforming-diagnosis
    https://www.nimh.nih.gov/about/directors/thomas-insel/blog/2015/mortality-and-mental-disorders

    Oh, and yeah, the fiscally irresponsible “robber barons” / globalist banksters – whose money the doctors worship – are imploding the world’s monetary systems, as we speak. And the globalist banksters, who create the money the doctors worship out of nothing, are not good “gods” either.

    Maybe the Holy Spirit blaspheming “mental health” workers were wrong?

  • It does seem that too many of the psychologists and psychiatrists are both systemic, child abuse covering up criminals.

    https://www.indybay.org/newsitems/2019/01/23/18820633.php?fbclid=IwAR2-cgZPcEvbz7yFqMuUwneIuaqGleGiOzackY4N2sPeVXolwmEga5iKxdo
    https://www.alternet.org/2010/04/are_prozac_and_other_psychiatric_drugs_causing_the_astonishing_rise_of_mental_illness_in_america/

    And all this “mental health professional” child abuse covering up is 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

    And their “partnership” (“conspiracy”) with the mainstream religion, in which I grew up; turned my childhood religion into an apparent satanic, systemic child abuse covering up, DSM “bible” thumping religion.

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

    And due to the mainstream religions’ “partnership,” and “conspiracy” with, these scientifically “invalid” “mental health professions.”

    https://www.nimh.nih.gov/about/directors/thomas-insel/blog/2013/transforming-diagnosis

    I have no doubt that “The numerous pleas for help that MFI receives by email and telephone are usually about forced confinement, outpatient drugging, and guardianships.”

    Since the “mental health professions'” systemic covering up of the medical evidence of the abuse of my child, first started with medically unneeded, outpatient druggings. Then I was illegal forced confined, by a formerly ELCA employed, but now FBI convicted doctor.

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

    Then, to further attempt to cover up the prior illegal “mental health professional” behavior. I was handed over a guardianship contract, under the guise of an “artist manager” contract, by an idiot Lutheran psychologist.

    Thankfully, I knew enough to not sign that bogus contract, and have already medically explained to a decent doctor how the prior druggings made me sick. So he took the original non-medically trained, Lutheran, Holy Spirit blaspheming, psychologist’s misdiagnosis off my medical records.

    But do the “conspiring” “mental health professionals” have a “plan 4,” for attempting to murder and/or steal from, the innocent and legitimately concerned mothers of innocent child abuse survivors?

    And I do wonder exactly how long it will take for the Lutheran psychologists, pastors, and bishops I had to work with to garner insight into the fact that Jesus’ theology was about repenting, and turning from one’s evil ways? Thus, I wonder how long will it take for them to end their systemic, “dirty little secret of the two original educated professions,” multibillion dollar, primarily child abuse covering up “partnership.”

    And since I’m not going to shut up about their systemic crimes, and I’d like to see an end to this multibillion dollar, primarily child abuse covering up, paternalistic, medical/religious “partnership.” I am, no doubt, still in danger.

    Although, the good news is I met with a group of female literary artists recently, and synopsized my medical research findings and story for them. I was met with a “Wow! that’s a book proposal” critique. So I was succinctly able to convince a small group of women writers, that we should not perpetuate the paternalist, systemic child abuse covering up, “dirty little secret of the two original educated professions’,” unjust “mental health” industries forever.

    I have not yet gotten involved with the MFI Shield program, but likely should. Thanks, Ron, and all others at MFI, for all that you do. Forgive me for being somewhat new, and ignorant of all going on within the movement.

  • “We should now know that if people experience symptoms soon after stopping their antidepressants, and they include dizziness, electric shock sensations or trouble concentrating, withdrawal is the likely cause. The correct response to this is not to conclude that the person requires lifelong medication but simply that they need to taper off their medication more slowly in the way that the Royal College of Psychiatry now advises.”

    Shouldn’t those, claiming to be “professionals,” have known this about the antidepressants – which they force onto innocent others, under the guise of “safe … meds” – about 40 years ago? I made sure I knew about the pros and cons of the products I have sold in my life. What is “professional” about knowing nothing about the common adverse and withdrawal effects of the products one forces others to buy – for 40 years?

  • “… why antidepressants are always among one of the top four selling drugs.” Because they’re being handed over under the guise of “safe … meds.” And because a middle aged woman cannot walk into a hospital in America, with an exercise related pain, not a depression related symptom. Without being asked, by an aptly named but idiotic Dr. Paine, “Are you depressed?”

    Thankfully, saying no, and mentioning you’re allergic to the anticholinergic drugs, does encourage those who are pill pushing pains to quickly walk away.

    “With an NNT of seven, depressed patients need to make this decision: Is the one-in-seven chance of a benefit beyond placebo worth the risk associated with taking the drug?” I agree with you, “I don’t think we can rely on physicians to provide patients with NNT data so they can make informed decisions.” Despite the fact that giving informed consent to patients is probably the most important aspect of their job.

    “But isn’t it malpractice to expose 8,600 patients to the side effects of antidepressants without their experiencing any benefit in reduction of symptoms beyond placebo?” Absolutely it is. “And then, of course, many of these patients will be exposed to other drugs to treat the antidepressant’s side effects. I believe that is the greater malpractice!” I couldn’t agree more, where’s my malpractice money?

    “My reading of the health literature leads me to believe that improving the quality of healthcare, and lowering its costs, will require major changes to the present system. Nothing short of revolutionary change is required to improve the current healthcare system.”

    Again, I agree. And that’s all those of us speaking out on this website are saying. We’re not the enemies, merely because we speak the truth, we’re the canaries in the coal mine.

  • Interesting, and a likely wisdom inspired take, kindredspirit. Albeit, I can’t say I’ve personally yet done a lot of research into critical race theory. Although I do know it is a “divide and conquer” theology, which is a war tactic.

    But I have no doubt, “Psychiatric Survivors as Therapists Negotiate Difficult Spaces in Mental Health Activism.” Since so do peer supporters, and even the ethical psychiatrists, who are at the top of the medical caste system.

    https://www.madinamerica.com/2021/05/drowning-doubts-why-i-think-about-leaving-psychiatry/

    And I do also agree with largely everything Astra stated. Especially, “Trust is earned. Until psychiatry makes amends with its inherent mistrust of the patient …, I cannot trust even myself to work among them.”

    Especially, since I’m a former patient, whose medical records state about my life, “not believed by doctor.” By a psychiatrist who eventually literally declared my entire life to be a “credible fictional story,” prior my leaving that unrepentant, idiot psychiatrist. And then I decided it would not be worth being a “peer supporter,” during peer training. Because they’re still teaching the debunked “chemical imbalance theory” in the peer training classes.

    I also agree with Astra, “All of them are potential antagonists because the system they operate in tolerates abuse and neglect.” And it is the violent and abusive psychiatric system that is the problem.

    But the bigger problem is that caste systems are bad, and the entire American medical industry is set up as a caste system, despite this being very anti-American. And it is because the American medical system is set up as a caste system, that systemic change is needed.

    In America, we’re all supposed to believe “all people are created as equal.” So having our medical system set up as a caste system, which has less than zero to do with the belief that “all people are created as equal,” is the problem.

    We really do need to get rid of “Rockefeller Medicine,” since Rockefeller even confessed in his own writings, to being a globalist, thus anti-American.

  • “Even better, let’s stop shaming adults with childhood trauma and labeling them as ‘disordered’ in the first place.”

    I couldn’t agree more, since covering up child abuse is the number one actual societal function of both the psychological and psychiatric industries, as well as the other DSM “bible” billers. Despite the fact that covering up child abuse is a crime.

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

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

    Thank you for sharing your story, Rebecca, since psychologists as a profession need to be seen as equally responsible for all this criminal child abuse covering up, as the psychiatric profession is as well.

  • Thank you for the eulogy, Michael. As one who is somewhat new (over merely that past 16 years) to garnering insight into the systemic crimes of the psychiatric industry, whose found the medical proof of why we truly do need to fight the scientific fraud of the psychiatric industry.

    I do appreciate learning about all that Jay has done. But I’m still somewhat at the phase, that learning all about the systemic crimes that the psychiatric and psychologic industries have committed against humanity for over a century, still breaks my heart. My sincerest condolences to all of Jay’s loved ones, relatives, and friends. I know, with all my heart, he was on the side of God.

  • “I think real evil, according to its nature, is never open about the fact that it’s evil. It masquerades as the solution. It masquerades as something no one should have a choice about because it’s just that morally good. And I think people who are evil genuinely believe that they are doing good. That’s what makes them so difficult to reason with, in the end.”

    “Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.” – quote by C. S. Lewis

    As one who has been researching into the systemic crimes of the “mental health” industry, and other industries, for almost as long as you’ve been alive, Ruby. I will say I believe the real “evil” is the fiscally irresponsible globalist bankers, who’ve funded the scientific fraud based pharmaceutical industry, plus miseducated, and bribed the medical workers in the universities, hospitals, and beyond.

    Those bankers would be the “robber barons” in C. S. Lewis’ quote. And the miseducated, bribed, and misinformed medical community are the “omnipotent moral busy bodies.” As are also, unfortunately, many of the mainstream pastors, since they’ve “partnered” with the “mental health” industry.

    As to the “schizophrenia” drugs, the antipsychotics / neuroleptics; they can create the positive symptoms of “schizophrenia,” via anticholinergic toxidrome. They 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

    But as kindredspirit mentioned, withdrawal from the antipsychotics can also create a drug withdrawal induced “super sensitivity manic psychosis.” So do be forewarned, as you are weaned from those drugs.

    Thank you so much for sharing your story, Ruby. You are a very strong lady. I pray, you are able to be weaned off the antipsychotics / neuroleptics, in a safe manner. I believe going very slowly is likely the key (perhaps over years). But please know in your heart and mind, that being weaned from the antipsychotics/neuroleptics is totally possible. I managed to convince a psychiatrist to do it so, so can you. However, it may take changing doctors, or even moving out of state, as it did in my case.

    God bless you in your healing journey, I know you can do it. Keep good journal notes, and eventually pick up your medical records, so you may later tell your story. But I’ll tell you, if you do deal with a drug withdrawal induced “super sensitivity manic psychosis,” which you will not necessarily recognize when it happens. But if you’re feeling too good, after being weaned from the antipsychotics, turn on your phone recorder, and verbally record your experience. Because it’s hard to keep good journal notes, when you’re manic.

  • Joel, I’m pretty certain it is the psychiatric and psychological industries – the leaders of the “invalid” DSM deluded “mental health professions” collectively – who are “just practicing ‘pendulum mentality.'”

    Psychologists often play the (pretend) no med side of the, systemic child abuse covering up, “mental health” pendulum (since many do force people to go to a psychiatrist and take drugs). And the psychiatrists are the neurotoxic poisoning side of the, systemic child abuse covering up, “mental health” pendulum.

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

    And this systemic child abuse covering up “mental health” pendulum, is all 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

    But I do know that a lot of psychologists and psychiatrists have a bad habit of accusing others of doing, exactly what they are doing.

  • “On the contrary, most of my referrals come from psychologists, who are diagnosing patients inappropriately with innumerable serious disorders including ADHD and Bipolar Disorder.”

    I totally agree, and I have no idea why non-medically trained psychologists, social workers, etc. are even allowed to “diagnose” anyone, with anything, anyway. And most certainly the non-medically trained, should never be demanding people be medicated, which the psychologists absolutely do.

    “In my experience, most therapists are not effective and are ego-driven, tending to interpret their own infectiveness as the patient’s need for medication. It’s all the more maddening, and absolutely frustrating because therapists aren’t implicated in the problems with psychiatry despite the intimate role they play in causing and perpetuating these problems.”

    You are absolutely right, the therapy industry should be implicated in the problems with psychiatry.

    And there is another problem with at least some of the psychologists and therapists. They have “partnered” with the paternalist religions. Their role in that “partnership,” is covering up child abuse and rape, so the pastors do not need to deal with those issues.

    Thus, covering up child abuse is the number one actual societal function of both the psychological and psychiatric industries today.

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

    And all this systemic child abuse covering up is 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

    I will agree with others here, who stated you should go into private practice. And I do believe there is a need for psychiatrists, who will actually assist people in safely getting off the psychiatric drugs.

  • And some of the mainstream religions have “partnered with,” and are “conspiring” with, the DSM deluded “mental health” workers. So those lazy pastors and bishops, within those paternalistic churches and religions, don’t want to end their “partnership” with psychiatry’s and psychology’s multibillion dollar, systemic, primarily child abuse covering up, system.

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

    Because the scientifically fraud based, systemic child abuse covering up, DSM “bible” system “is too profitable” for the doctors and pastors within those religions, and their hospitals, to give up.

  • I agree with kindredspirit. And I think I agree with absolutely everything you stated in this blog, Karin, which does not happen often. “… it’s accountability in your closest friendships, it’s a radical self-love, it’s telling your truths to power.” I couldn’t agree more, that those are the true paths to healing. And I agree, we do also need to heal our society, in order to bring about a better world for all.

    I will agree also with a comment that David Healey stated about Jim Gottstein’s book, “The Zyprexa Papers,” which I just read in an email, and seems relevant to this discussion. Since all of us in the West have been lied to about so much, especially by psychiatrists. But also by the other doctors, bankers, media organizations, politicians, the pharmaceutical industry, etc., etc. “It takes a certain amount of time and distance to write a book [or a blog] as good as this.”

    It takes time to overcome the justifiable anger – at being poisoned, defamed, lied to … – do truth seeking research, digest the staggering societal betrayal of the corrupt systems within our nations, and get all the truths out.

    But I will say, I do see this happening. Some are calling it “the great awakening,” however I do know the masses are still largely unaware. But since hope is also of key importance in healing, we must “keep the faith.”

    As a fellow artist and psych survivor, it does seem to me that the psychologists and psychiatrists do target us artists, in part, since we’re not here to “conform.” The artists, likely many of whom are also avid researchers, are the “canaries in the coal mine,” warning our society that we’re on the wrong path. But the realtors know it’s wise to “follow the artists,” for a reason.

    The artists are creators, and history documentarians, but we are not followers. The psychiatrists are looking rather foolish today, because they were merely followers of the pharmaceutical industry. And the psychologists, and other DSM “bible” billers, are looking rather foolish, because they are followers of the scientifically fraud based psychiatric DSM.

  • You are absolutely right, Jennifer, a discussion on psychiatric drug withdrawal is definitely needed. Since many psychiatrists and psychologists claim ignorance – or are actually ignorant – of both the common withdrawal symptoms of the psych drugs, and the duration of how long it may take for those withdrawal effects to roll out, or how long they will last. And this, of course, means “the psychiatric treatment community [have been for decades and still] are … contributing to [and I will go so far as to say causing] the problem.”

    An example is the medical community’s ignorance of the common symptoms of antidepressant discontinuation syndrome, which in reality, should be called antidepressant withdrawal. Personally, I had the common symptom of antidepressant discontinuation syndrome, “brain zaps,” misdiagnosed in late 2001. The “mental health” workers I worked with, with great hubris, confessed to knowing nothing about this common antidepressant withdrawal symptom until 2005.

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

    Not to mention, antidepressants and antidepressant withdrawal can result in “mania.” Which has been massively misdiagnosed as “bipolar,” resulting in a completely iatrogenic “bipolar epidemic,” as Whitaker so wisely described in his book “Anatomy of an Epidemic.”

    https://www.alternet.org/2010/04/are_prozac_and_other_psychiatric_drugs_causing_the_astonishing_rise_of_mental_illness_in_america/

    Despite this disclaimer being clearly stated in the DSM-IV-TR, so the “mental health” workers I worked with should have known better. The pissed off, and unethical psychiatric industry did take this disclaimer out of their 2013 published DSM5, to ensure even more, systemic, “mental health” industry malpractice, for profit.

    “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.”

    And the “gold standard bipolar treatments,” which today include the “schizophrenia treatments,” the antipsychotics (aka neuroleptics).

    https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/bipolar-disorder/diagnosis-treatment/drc-20355961

    I know those here at MiA are tired of me mentioning this. But since it has not yet been mentioned by the mainstream media, I will point it out again. The “schizophrenia” treatments can create the positive symptoms of “schizophrenia,” via anticholinergic toxidrome. And they 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

    Psychiatrists, as medically trained doctors, should all know this, but seemingly don’t. Their scientifically “invalid” DSM has functioned to miseducate all the non-medically trained “mental health” workers.

    https://www.nimh.nih.gov/about/directors/thomas-insel/blog/2013/transforming-diagnosis

    And, let’s be realistic, non-medically trained “mental health” workers should never be able to “diagnose” anyone with anything. An older nurse friend of mine did state this used to be the case. But, make no mistake, many of them now do believe systemically misdiagnosing people for profit, is their right.

    Thank you, Jennifer, for being one of the very few lawyers, speaking out against the systemic crimes of our scientific fraud based “mental health” industries.

  • “Focusing on activity compositions rather than individual activities opens up new intervention possibilities.” It sure does seem to me that psychologists are always looking for new ways to “intervene” in other people’s lives. Maybe they should learn to “live and let live” instead?

    But I am glad psychologists are starting to garner some insight into the importance of “moderate-to-vigorous physical activity.” Hopefully this means they’ll stop demanding the neurotoxic poisoning of people for losing weight, by way of “moderate-to-vigorous physical activity?” From the DSM5 “depression” definition:

    “Significant weight loss when not dieting….” Note, no mention of whether the weight loss was the intended result of “moderate-to-vigorous physical activity.” Which, in my case, my weight loss was.

    And let’s hope psychologists stop giving bad advise like, “quit all your activities, and concentrate on the meds.”

    Truly, as to the “mental health workers” I personally encountered, I’ve never met dumber, more unethical, but pathological lying, and criminal people – to the point of being systemic child abuse cover uppers, attempted murderers and attempted thieves.

    Let’s hope the psychological industry some day learns to investigate the log in their own eye, prior to trying to intervene and “diagnose,” with their debunked DSM disorders, and no medical training, the splinter in others’ eyes.

    Why are the non-medically trained psychologists, social workers, et al, allowed to “diagnose” anyone, with anything, anyway?

  • “Acute conditions like psychoses and depression are often related to trauma and tend to self-heal if we are a little patient.” Isn’t it bizarre how being “a little patient” can have two meanings, in the English language?

    https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/patient

    It can mean what the psychiatrists assume of their patients – that they are “w/o work, content, worth, and talent” and “irrelevant to reality,” just worthless, “little” patient[s] – prior to ever looking at their work, or actually listening to their concerns.

    Or it can mean having patience, and not immediately force drugging every patient you meet, prior to actually listening to their concerns, and looking at their work. Which is what the psychiatrists should actually have been doing all along, but have not been.

    Thank you, Peter, for speaking the truth. We truly do need the brilliant and ethical doctors, like you, on our side. I’m very grateful for your work, and your speaking truth to those who’ve wrongly been given undeserved power, the psychiatrists.

  • “The World Health Organization has found that persistent pain is associated with psychological illness.”

    This may be because the medical community has been prescribing the opioids and antidepressants, under the guise of “safe … meds,” to cover up their easily recognized malpractice – that resulted in the persistent pain – for decades. By the way, I rather agree with kindredspirit’s sentiments about the WHO, and medical community in general.

    “Some scholars have pointed out that a biomedical focus on treating rather than healing pain fails to comprehend pain’s phenomenological nature and has contributed to the opioid epidemic.”

    No doubt. And the reason chronic pain is likely associated with psychological illnesses, is because the antidepressants are mind altering drugs, that can create the symptoms of the psychological illnesses. But, of course, many doctors, psychiatrists, and psychologists are completely ignorant of this fact. And it had to be pointed out by a scientific journalist.

    https://www.alternet.org/2010/04/are_prozac_and_other_psychiatric_drugs_causing_the_astonishing_rise_of_mental_illness_in_america/

  • Seroquel resulted in a bad trip for me, too. But I will say it did result in a fairly severe form of dyskinesia, while I was taking it. Although my psychiatrist claimed my uncontrolled movement problem could absolutely not be caused by his neuroleptics. So definitely the psychiatrists and other doctors do all need to be educated about dyskinesia, and that their “wonder drugs” are not “wonder drugs.”

    Thankfully, in my case, the dyskinesia almost completely went away when I was weaned off the neuroleptics. The only tardive dyskinesia I’ve been left with is a wiggly ankle when I wake in the morning. But I will say, it was a good thing that I was able to medically explain the etiology of my wiggly ankle, otherwise a doctor would likely have attempted to prescribe me a drug for “restless leg syndrome.”

    The ignorance, or outright lies, of psychiatrists and other doctors, in regards to the common adverse and withdrawal effects of their drugs, will likely never cease to amaze me. Thank you for sharing your story, Kathleen.

  • “What the author is talking about here, to be actionable, involves blowing up the entire profession, training model, accreditation standards, ethics code, everything. And that is why it will never happen. Despite the fact that it should.”

    But the reality is, it not just should. In a way, it has already happened. Given that the psychologists are all now required to do tele therapy, since they’ve been declared “non-essential” employees, due to Covid-19. In a way, it does appear that Covid-19 is the new schizophrenia.

    And all of us here know the entire DSM was confessed to be “invalid” eight years ago, by the head of NIMH.

    https://www.nimh.nih.gov/about/directors/thomas-insel/blog/2013/transforming-diagnosis

    Meaning everything the DSM “bible” believing psychological profession believes in, is a delusion. Thus, “blowing up the entire profession, training model, accreditation standards, ethics code, everything” does actually need to happen.

    The psychologists should all be running, as fast as possible, from the psychiatrists’ DSM “bible,” if they want to salvage any shred of credibility. Although, make no mistake. I know first hand, that those psychological DSM “bible” thumpers that I had to deal with, who are hoping to “maintain the status quo,” are turning to blatant criminality and attempted thievery. And I do have legal proof of this.

    However, I would imagine those psychologists and therapists may now be questioning “maintaining the status quo.” Now that they, and their pastors, have been declared “non-essential,” their businesses closed; they’re locked in their homes, and forced to wear face masks, when they do go out.

    Personally, I’m quite certain, “maintaining the status quo” is a bad idea for at least the 99% of humans, at this point; which does include the psychological profession, and the pedophile protecting pastors, with whom they’ve “partnered.”

    Why is it that you don’t agree that the “ethics” of the psychological profession needs to be imploded? Given the history of your profession, and the criminal child abuse covering up history of the DSM “bible” writers, that too many psychologists apparently can’t stop worshipping …

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

    And all this un-“ethical” systemic child abuse covering up, by the psychological and psychiatric professions, is 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

    No doubt, major systemic “mental health” industry change is indeed needed. And, no doubt, the “helping professions” should be about “Human Connection and Mutuality,” instead of the current, scientifically fraud based DSM, stigmatize and neurotoxic poison “biomedical” model.

    Run away, as fast as you can from the psychiatric DSM “bible,” psychologists. Otherwise you may likely be following the systemic neurotoxic poisoning, Pharmakia forcing psychiatrists, to where they belong.

    What if the Holy Spirit blaspheming, systemic child abuse covering up, psychological industry is wrong? And there is actually a God?

  • I do agree, “The focus is on the failure of mainstream services to understand context and experience.” And I do agree with this author, that we in America are living in the midst of a “culture war.”

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

    But that’s largely because my experience with a “holistic, Christian” Lutheran psychologist was that she believed a dream about being ‘moved by the Holy Spirit’ – which is one aspect of the Triune God, in which the Lutherans used to claim to believe – is “psychosis.” Apparently all who dream are “psychotic” now, according to the psychologists and psychiatrists? And I also had the misfortune of dealing with another Lutheran psychologist, who believed that the job of psychologists is to steal from those who believe in God and stand against child abuse.

    The first psychologist also eventually confessed to me, when I was picking up her medical records, that she believed distress caused by 9/11/2001, right after that distressing-to-the-entire-world event, was distress caused by a “chemical imbalance” in my brain alone. Who’s insane?

    I’m quite certain both these psychologists and psychiatrists, and the ELCA pastors and bishops also involved, should get out of the Holy Spirit blaspheming, systemic child abuse covering up, child abusing, anticholinergic toxidrome attempted murdering, pedophile aiding, abetting, and empowering business.

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

    Since living in a “pedophile empire” is not really a “status quo” that should be maintained, as that second, attempted thieving, psychologist stated he believed. Although I would guess he and his now claimed to be “non-essential” pastor, question that belief system. And as the globalist banksters are working to implode all of the Western civilizations’ monetary systems, they may also question their worship in the American dollar?

    We are living in the midst of a “culture war.” And the ELCA bishops, pastors I dealt with, and their systemic child abuse covering up, pedophile aiding, abetting, and empowering “mental health” industry, are the enemies within, as are the globalist banksters. And all this systemic child abuse covering up, by the DSM “bible” thumpers, is 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

    There’s a good reason I painted the American flag as upside down and backwards 16 years ago. And why the psychologist I mentioned, who knows something about art, is now attempting to steal all profits from my “insightful” and “prophetic” work, not to mention the rest of my money. But satanic “pharmakia” forcing “mental health” sickos, truly, is all they are. And all the DSM deluded “mental health professionals” involved do truly need to repent and change from their evil ways.

    Since their DSM “bible” was debunked as scientific fraud in 2013. And the DSM deluded “mental health” system is murdering “8 million” innocent people EVERY YEAR, based upon their BS DSM belief system, and with their neurotoxic drugs.

    https://www.nimh.nih.gov/about/directors/thomas-insel/blog/2013/transforming-diagnosis
    https://www.nimh.nih.gov/about/directors/thomas-insel/blog/2015/mortality-and-mental-disorders

    Truly, I hope and pray, we will bring about a better world for all. But I do believe it requires a proper judgement by God. Not a judgement by the “mental health” system.

  • The school social worker in my child’s school seemed to believe that all children who get in the top 100% of their state standardized tests, merely because their schools are “not equipped to deal with these children,” need to be drugged. Thankfully the science teacher and principal of my child’s school had sane bones in their bodies. But a psychologist I spoke to about this problem later agreed with that satanic social worker.

    The reality is, our society really has a problem of the overmedicating, by the psychological, social worker, and psychiatric industries, of our children. Largely due to the scientific fraud based psychological and psychiatric industries’ desire, to maintain their scientifically debunked DSM “bible” system.

  • I must agree, as one who was DSM defamed, and massively drugged, for questioning a dream about being ‘moved by the Holy Spirit.’ One does have to question, how long it will take for the mainstream paternalistic – now freely admitting to be, DSM “bible” “partnering” – religions, to actually realize that the Holy Bible does state it is important to respect women.

    I had to leave my childhood religion, twice. Since it has twice proven to me that all it cares about is the DSM “bible” thumpers’ belief system, which is that covering up child abuse is their life’s goal. And all this systemic child abuse covering up is by their DSM “bible’s” design.

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

    Maybe, respecting the women of your religion, who stand against child abuse, who may be ‘moved by the Holy Spirit,’ may be wiser instead, Lutherans? Especially since your own ELCA insiders have been writing scathing books about who you’ve chosen to become, since 2007?

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

    Let’s hope some day the ELCA religion will some day garner insight into the stupidity of “partnering with” and “conspiring with” the DSM “bible” thumper’s systemic, by DSM design, child abuse covering up religion.

    And realize that betraying the ethical Christian American banking families, that made their pastors’ pension funds millions, was a dumb idea. I do hope and pray all are judged fairly by God. And I do still believe God will judge all fairly.

  • Ignoring my therapist’s bad advice to “quit all your activities and concentrate on the meds,” and doing a LOT of volunteering instead, did help me survive and escape today’s insane “mental health” system. As a matter of fact, I’m quite certain that repeatedly discussing my many volunteer activities with my psychiatrist is part of why he eventually concluded that my therapist had misdiagnosed me, so he weaned me off his drugs.

  • As one who was misdiagnosed with “chronic low back pain,” which was the result of a “bad fix” on a broken ankle, by my PCP’s husband. Who was the “attending physician” at the “bad fix,” on my broken ankle, according to my medical records. I will say that “chronic back pain” was remarkably eliminated, quite quickly, by an old school chiropractor, who I paid for – outside my medical insurance.

    “About two-thirds of people taking SNRIs experienced an adverse effect.” I know my PCP inappropriately, and disingenuously, put me on a SNRI, which resulted in very bizarre and adverse effects. Which my PCP, the psychologists, and psychiatrists, all misdiagnosed.

    So I totally agree, the antidepressants should NOT be prescribed for back pain.

  • The whole situation is not nearly as complex, as the psychological and psychiatric industries would like the world to believe. The ADHD drugs and antidepressants can create the symptoms of “bipolar,” as Robert Whitaker so wisely pointed out in “Anatomy of an Epidemic.”

    And the antipsychotics / neuroleptics, which have been being given to both those stigmatized as “bipolar” and “schizophrenic” for the past several decades. They can create both the positive and negative symptoms of “schizophrenia.” The positive symptoms can be created, via anticholinergic toxidrome. And the negative symptoms can be created, via neuroleptic induced deficit syndrome.

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

    It’s not that complex, and psychiatry is a pseudo science.

  • I sure wish the grown up psychologists and psychiatrists would stop experimenting and preying upon other people’s children. Especially since none of your DSM disorders are valid diseases. And the antidepressants and anti-anxiety drugs, that you’re hoping to get the children on, are neurotoxins.

    I’m not a big Harry Potter person, but I think Harry Potter is about witches and warlocks. And I’m not so certain that is the type stuff that should be promoted in the schools.

  • “Both socioeconomic status and race influence what diagnosis a person receives when they see a mental health professional.”

    Very true, which is part of why I’ve tried to help educate the black community, where I live, about the scientific fraud of the psychiatric DSM, and the common adverse effects of the psych drugs.

    But I will say, I do have written proof in my medical records, that a psychiatrist (whose partner in crime was convicted by the FBI) did illegally access my income information. And made the incorrect assumption that an artist working on her portfolio, who was also a very active volunteer and mother trying to properly raise two young children, who had already paid off her half of her family’s home, was nothing more than “unemployed.” And I guarantee you, I would never have told that psychiatrist that I was “unemployed.” Since I was a self employed, fiscally responsible, mother, active volunteer, and artist working for future profits.

    Plus I also have legal proof that a psychologist, who knew something about art, and thought my work might be of value some day, since he called me a “Chicago Chagall.” He attempted to steal all profits from my work, my work, my story, and all my money, via a classic thievery contract, which he deceptively called an “art manager” contract. Of course I did not sign that thievery contract.

    But absolutely, there is a huge problem with the medical community, especially the psychiatric and psychological communities, misjudging people based on partial, illegally gotten, financial information; and outright attempting to steal from people.

    There is also a huge problem with the medical community utilizing psychologists and psychiatrists to cover up their easily recognized malpractice, to proactively prevent legitimate malpractice suits. There is also a problem with lawyers not taking cases again psychiatrists who commit malpractice. Crimes, all of which, are forms of medical industry theft, not just from one person, but from all of society as well.

    And make no mistake, when an unethical and incompetent doctor utilizes psychiatrists to cover up his “bad fix” on one person’s broken ankle. That incompetent doctor will go on to murder another person with an ankle problem, this actually happened.

    So the psychological and psychiatric professions really need to stop covering up the mainstream incompetent doctors’ malpractice, and allow the patients to sue the incompetent doctors instead.

  • “This is insane and constitutes gross medical malpractice. No one in the whole world knows what will happen when all these drugs are given together, only that it is far more dangerous than if fewer drugs are used.”

    Actually, all the doctors are taught in med school, that combining either or both the antidepressants and/or antipsychotics, can create “psychosis” or “hallucinations,” via anticholinergic toxidrome.

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

    Albeit, I will admit this common medical knowledge is blatantly missing from the psychiatric DSM “bible.” No doubt, because it’s how the unethical, paranoid, dangerous doctors have been covering up their unethical, incompetent husband’s malpractice, et al, for decades. Which is the function of the medically incompetent psychiatric system, who claim to be ignorant of this fact, and likely need to be judged fairly by God.

    But I will disagree, “No one in the whole world knows what will happen when all these drugs are given together,” since I know what will happen, thus I’m quite certain God also knows. And I do hope and pray God will judge all the unethical doctors fairly.

  • The BPD and bipolar labels are most often given to cover up child abuse. Given the fact that, “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).”

    And all this systemic child abuse covering up is by DSM design, since no “mental health” worker may ever bill any insurance company for ever helping any child abuse survivor, unless they first misdiagnose them, with one of the billable, but “invalid” DSM disorders.

    https://www.psychologytoday.com/us/blog/your-child-does-not-have-bipolar-disorder/201402/dsm-5-and-child-neglect-and-abuse-1
    https://www.nimh.nih.gov/about/directors/thomas-insel/blog/2013/transforming-diagnosis.shtml

    And the psychological and therapy industries have been, and still are, functioning as the child abuse covering up “partners” of my former paternalistic religion; but not likely only that religion, for seemingly over a century, if not much longer. They’ve even turned the bishops of my childhood religion into systemic child abuse cover uppers, which a sad, but true, thing to have to say about my former religion. An ethical pastor of a different religion did call this systemic “conspiracy” to be, “the dirty little secret of the two original educated professions.”

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

    “But what worries me is not only myself, but our patients. They are being put in these positions as well, dehumanized by the very professionals charged with helping them.” Absolutely, the hypocrisy and downright criminality of the two Lutheran psychologists, who attacked me, is quite staggering.

    The first one attacked me, based upon lies and gossip from pedophiles and a Spiritual child abusing pastor, according to that psychologist’s medical records. Prior to my personally understanding of, then eventual handing over of, the medical proof that my child had been sexually assaulted by, that pastor’s best friend.

    The second psychologist who attacked me, did so merely because I gave his pastor Whitaker’s book, “Anatomy of an Epidemic,” out of concern for the millions of children being misdiagnosed. Thankfully, I was able to embarrass the second psychologist, since I’d done my homework, and he had not. But make no mistake, I did try to stop him from embarrassing himself, yet he did not listen to me. And he did hand over written legal proof, that his goal was to embarrass and steal all profits from my work, and all my money, from me. Which, of course, was an “art manager” contract, I had no interest in signing.

    And I agree, Laura, those idiot American psychologists – who are harassing you – and want to “maintain the status quo,” are idiots. Let’s hope and pray for real systemic change, within the entire “mental health” system. Maybe this little bit of information, from my decades of research, might help embarrass them, and help you to fight your bullies. Or at least help direct you in your own research, into the historic and continuing, systemic crimes of your industry. Crimes that really do need to end.

    Especially now that we all now live in a “pedophile empire,” largely thanks to the systemic child abuse covering up crimes of all the DSM “bible” billers. Since, of course, systemically covering up child abuse, does also function to aid, abet, and empower the child abusers, which is illegal, and morally wrong.

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

    By the way, in my research, I did find the medical proof of the likely iatrogenic etiology of even “the sacred symbol of psychiatry.” Since I found the medical evidence that all the doctors were taught in medical school that both the antidepressants and antipsychotics can create “psychosis” and “hallucinations,” via anticholinergic toxidrome. And the antipsychotics (aka 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

    Yet both these highly relevant syndrome are conveniently, financially, for both the systemic child abuse covering up psychological and psychiatric industries, not mentioned in their DSM billing code “bible.” Please do what you can to embarrass your bullies, and help to bring about a more ethical and humane “helping” community.

  • Forgive my ignorance, but this all largely reads as a bunch of psycho-babble to me. Since I’m pretty certain that I agree with you, that the DSM “bible” belief system is wrong. And I’m pretty certain the major issue with most of those who have been mislabeled with the psychiatric DSM disorders, by both the psychologists and psychiatrists, is that the vast majority of them, are child abuse survivors.

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

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

    And all this systemic psychological and psychiatric, systemic, child abuse covering up, is all 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

    So, perhaps rather than proposing new weird, and unproven, psychological theories, for explaining the systemic “invalidity” and serious problems going on within both the psychological and psychiatric industries, psychologists should be properly addressing the common sense problems within your industries? Which are that both your industries are systemic child abuse covering up industries. And these systemic crimes have led us all to now living in a satanic “pedophile empire.”

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

  • Wow, great interview. That’s the best description of “psychosis,” about which I have personally ever heard or read. I was not a philosophy major in college, but do have books by most those authors in my personal library. So I probably did read them, back in college. But one does not remember everything one reads in college, most of it likely just gets left in one’s subconscious. So I probably should reread some of my philosophy books. And knowing I should do this, has been nagging at me for some time. Just like knowing I had to read the Holy Bible became a priority of mine in the early 2000’s.

    And I will say, for me at least, my neuroleptic induced, anticholinergic toxidrome “psychosis” was stupid, inane, and it truly was torture. But my drug withdrawal induced “super-sensitivity manic psychosis” definitely functioned as an awakening to my subconscious self, and dreams. It was actually a very enlightening experience. It worked to help equate my subconscious self, with my waking hour, conscious self.

    So, obviously, I also think that Peter Kingsley’s quote at the end was the perfect way to end the interview. Stellar interview, gentleman, thank you.

  • I agree with the critics, “Critics dismiss the construct as fatally flawed and argue that SCT is an outgrowth of misdiagnosis of ADHD that could result in many being prescribed inappropriate medications.”

    And the entire psychological industry needs to garner insight into the reality that their entire DSM “bible” was confessed to be “invalid,” in 2013, by the head of their industry.

    https://www.nimh.nih.gov/about/directors/thomas-insel/blog/2013/transforming-diagnosis.shtml

    Thus continuing to make up more new “diagnoses” to stigmatize children with, so you may neurotoxic poison more children, is just really evil.

  • Thank you, Peter, for speaking the truth. I can feel the well deserved shock and anger at the psychiatric industry’s crimes against humanity, in your writing. I’ve been trying to overcome my shock and anger since 2005. When I was forced to become a psychopharmacological researcher, since no mainstream doctor would confess to the psychiatric industry’s systemic crimes against me.

    I was thankfully, eventually, able to find an ethical doctor, the head of family medicine at the Cleveland Clinic. And he, of course, does have a lot more credibility, than all those foreign trained doctors that had tried to murder me, via anticholinergic toxidrome, to cover up my PCP’s husband’s “bad fix” on my ankle, and the medical evidence of the abuse of my child. And I will say, one of those foreign trained doctors was eventually convicted by the FBI, for defrauding the US government, and because he was systemically harming many Americans.

    https://www.justice.gov/usao-ndil/pr/oak-brook-doctor-sentenced-two-years-prison-connection-kickback-scheme-sacred-heart

    But we truly do need the ethical doctors, worldwide, speaking out against our modern day worldwide psychiatric “holocaust.”

    https://www.naturalnews.com/049860_psych_drugs_medical_holocaust_big_pharma.html

    Especially since the former head of the NIHM confessed to the scientific fraud, and “invalidity,” of all the DSM disorder, back in 2013. And he also stated in 2015 that the psychiatric industry, no doubt with their drugs, since their DSM disorders are “invalid,” but this is not actually mentioned. The doctors are killing “8 million” people EVERY year, with the psych drugs.

    https://www.nimh.nih.gov/about/directors/thomas-insel/blog/2013/transforming-diagnosis.shtml
    https://www.nimh.nih.gov/about/directors/thomas-insel/blog/2015/mortality-and-mental-disorders.shtml

    Please keep speaking out against our modern day, psych drug induced, psychiatric “holocaust,” Dr. Gøtzsche. Despite the fact we are being massively censored and demonized. Because what the psychiatrists and pharmaceutical industries have chosen to do, due to their greed, is downright evil.

  • Thank you for sharing your story, Kevin. People really do need to be forewarned that the “mental health” industries are, in reality, a group of child abuse covering up industries. And this is all by DSM design, since no “mental health” worker may ever bill any insurance company for ever helping any child abuse survivor, unless they first misdiagnose them with one – or many – of the billable DSM disorders.

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

    And the psychiatric industry really needs to stop lying about who and what their clients are. Given the fact they claim their clients are “dangerous,” when in reality, over 80% of those stigmatized with the DSM disorders are actually innocent child abuse survivors.
    .
    https://www.madinamerica.com/2016/04/heal-for-life/

    And a lot of psychologists have been covering up child abuse, seemingly, since Freud, or forever.

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

    Betrayal indeed. Let’s hope and pray the “mental health” industry some day garner insight into the fact that covering up child abuse is illegal, and does also function to aid, abet, and empower the child abusers. And all their systemic child abuse covering up crimes have left us all now living in a “pedophile empire.”

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

    I’m quite certain we should be taking this world in a different direction instead. Thanks, again, for sharing your story, Kevin. What happened to you is just part of an enormous, systemic societal problem.

  • Personally, I think forced treatment should be made illegal, since my experience with it was by a now FBI convicted, foreign trained, doctor. Who was having lots and lots of innocent Americans medically unnecessarily shipped long distances to himself, having his foreign trained psychiatrist partner-in-crime “snow” (massively drug until only the whites of the eyes show) the patients, in the hopes they’d stop breathing. So he could have unneeded tracheotomies on people done for profit. And, most certainly, they neither allowed family, nor friends, to visit while committing these crimes.

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

    In other words, forced treatment is being used and abused for unethical and greed inspired reasons. And most certainly, this kind of egregious, and illegal, misuse of forced treatment, does make a person lose trust in all so called “mental health” workers. Especially once one has found the medical proof that both the antidepressants and antipsychotics can make people “psychotic,” via anticholinergic toxidrome, a medically known way to poison people. Thus finding the medical proof of two of the iatrogenic, NOT “genetic,” etiologies of “psychosis.”

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

    The ADHD drugs can also make people “psychotic,” a third way the psychiatric industry iatrogenically makes people “psychotic.” Truly, the industry should be ashamed of their betrayal of their clients, their clients’ families, and of the “big lies” they, and the pharmaceutical industry, have told to the entire world.

    “If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”

    — Joseph Goebbels

    And what a staggering embarrassment it should be to the “mental health” industries, now that we all live in a “pedophile empire,” largely due to your systemic child abuse covering up, by DSM design, profiteering.

    The majority of Americans did not learn from history. However, this is not surprising, since our history teachers did not teach us the stories behind history, and merely made us memorize dates. So some of us had to research into history and medicine, to garner insight into the systemic crimes of the globalist banksters, the religions, and their army of scientific fraud based “mental health” minion.

  • I couldn’t agree more, kindredspirit, and Steve. It’s shameful our society has a group of, primarily child abuse covering up, “mental health” industries, and it’s all by DSM design.

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

    And our societies’ systemic child abuse covering up problems exist when a person is dealing with a pedophile on their child’s school board, and a likely pedophile pastor. Or at least a Holy Spirit blaspheming, child abusing, and child abuse covering up pastor, too.

    Child abuse is not only a problem within families. Unless you consider the religions, that claimed they are our families. And the doctors, who had promised to “first and foremost promise to do no harm,” but don’t, for greed inspired reasons, behave in an ethical manner, but didn’t.

    Those hypocritical, systemic child abuse covering up doctors, pastors, and bishops are a part of the problem. As at least somewhat recorded this book, written by an ELCA synod office insider. Read at a minimum, the Preface. I’d be one of the many “widows” described in the Preface of this book, after the author likely read the medical proof of my story, and was appalled by the Lutheran bishops’ denial response.

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

    I’m quite certain this “conspiracy” between the paternalistic “mental health professions'”, who are literally functioning as the systemic child abuse covering up arm of the religions’, who have confessed to me that they are in “partnership” with the paternalistic religions, should be put to an end. Since we need to put an end to “the dirty little secret of the two original educated professions.”

    https://stateofthenation2012.com/?p=59031

    But, since the “mental health professions,” and their religious leaders, the lawyers, judges, and the corrupt banksters, who funded the miseducation of these paternalistic, satanic systems, don’t want to end their “dirty little secret of the two original educated professions,” and other crimes. Let’s hope and pray God judges all fairly instead.

    No society should have systemic child abuse covering up “mental health” industries, since they help to bring about a “pedophile empire.”

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

    And none of us should wish to live in a “pedophile empire.” We need to bring about a better world instead. Let’s hope and pray we can all help to take our world elsewhere instead.

  • “… because we found [it] pretty difficult for us to remove the huge burden of stigma in the nurses related to their fear, fear of the agitated patient, fear of violent patients.”

    Maybe, if we started educating people about the fact that the vast majority of those labeled with the DSM disorders are child abuse survivors – over 80%.

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

    Instead of the psychiatric profession continuing to propagate the lie that all their clients are “dangerous.” There’d be a lot less fear and stigma, and there would theoretically be a lot more empathy, too.

  • Yes, that “guilt,” my husband and family felt, after “trusting doctors” (psychologists and psychiatrists), did destroy my marriage. And that “guilt” is still something my mother has a hard time dealing with, but at least she tries to admit to her mistake of “trusting doctors.”

    Shame on the mainstream medical community, and other “professionals,” for partnering with, and giving credence to, the scientific fraud based psychologists and psychiatrists. Merely because the psychologists and psychiatrists cover up your easily recognized malpractice, and child abuse covering up crimes.

  • “Consult a psychotherapist. You might also consider if you need a social worker, counsellor or lawyer.” This is not actually good advice, except maybe the lawyer part. Since all the psychotherapists and social workers my family had the misfortune of dealing with lied, and did next to nothing. Other than to misdiagnose the common odd, adverse, and withdrawal symptoms of an “antidepressant” as “bipolar.” And ship an innocent human being straight off to the psychiatrists to be massively neurotoxic poisoned. Since none of the “mental health” workers were apparently intelligent enough to read their own DSM-IV-TR, which clearly stated:

    “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.”

    And this disclaimer was taken OUT of the DSM5, no doubt to spite Robert Whitaker. Who, thankfully, pointing out the massive in scope iatrogenic “bipolar epidemic.”

    https://www.alternet.org/2010/04/are_prozac_and_other_psychiatric_drugs_causing_the_astonishing_rise_of_mental_illness_in_america/

    And later, a school social worker attempted to drug my child, because my child had healed from sexual assault; medical evidence of which was eventually handed over, by decent nurses. And my child went from remedial reading in first grade, after the assault, to getting 100% on his state standardized tests in eighth grade.

    But I will say all the lawyers I contacted refused to take a case of blatant psychological and psychiatric malpractice. CPS does not look into real cases of child abuse, once the medical evidence of such has been handed over. And the Chicago police tell a mother, whose had the medical evidence of the abuse of her innocent, three year old child handed over, to “talk to a psychiatrist,” rather than doing an investigation.

    But, thankfully, I was at least able to scare a private school, which had a pedophile on it’s school board, into closing it’s doors forever. After the medical evidence of the child abuse was finally handed over. So, hopefully, I at least helped protect other children from satanic pedophiles.

    But make no mistake, both the psychological and psychiatric industries, and all the DSM “bible” worshippers, in cahoots (“conspiracy” or “partnership”) with the mainstream paternalistic religions, who own the hospitals, are running a multibillion dollar, primarily child abuse covering up, scientific fraud based, “mental health” system.

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

    But now that we all live in a “pedophile empire,” many thanks to these “dirty little secret of the two original educated professions'” systemic crimes.

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

    I hope and pray that God, and we, can take our world elsewhere instead. But recommending people trust in any DSM “bible” biller, or even any mainstream paternalistic religion pastor, is unwise, at this point in time, sadly.

    And I will say, the “depression pills” are being handed out, by unethical, malpractice covering up PCP’s, for disingenuous reasons, as “safe” drugs. But I couldn’t agree more, “Never accept treatment with a depression pill. It is likely to make your life more miserable. Don’t believe anything doctors tell you about depression pills. It is highly likely to be wrong. Depression pills are dangerous. They increase the risk of suicide, violence and homicide at all ages. Depression pills are likely to destroy your sex life, in the worst case permanently.”

    That is all completely true. Even for those of us, who had to teach the head of family medicine, at one of the most well respected hospitals in the US. That even Wellbutrin, a SNRI, which was “illegally” marketed as a “happy, horny, skinny pill,” for good reason. Because it can have the opposite effect, than most the SSRI’s have, on people’s sexual life.

    It’s truly shameful that mainstream doctors, and psychiatrists, know nothing about the common odd, bizarre, and adverse effects of the psych drugs, that they coerce, and force, onto innocent people. While the DSM misdiagnosing, non-medically trained, psychologists and social workers fraudulently claim “the psychiatrists know everything about the drugs.”

    Psychiatrists, the mainstream doctors, and all the DSM “bible” billers, claim to know less than zero about the common odd, adverse, and withdrawal effects, of the psych drugs. And they’ve been apparently murdering “8 million” innocent people every year, for decades.

    https://www.nimh.nih.gov/about/directors/thomas-insel/blog/2015/mortality-and-mental-disorders.shtml

    Despite the fact, all doctors were taught in med school that both the antidepressants and antipsychotics can create create “psychosis,” via anticholinergic toxidrome, in med school.

  • I’m so sorry you had such a traumatic childhood, Annie. And covering up child abuse is the number one actual societal function of both the psychologists and psychiatrists, of which both industries should be highly ashamed.

  • Until the psychologists stop utilizing the “invalid” DSM stigmatization “bible,” I’m quite certain they will be unable to actually help the children, or adults. They need to stop believing in the “chemical imbalance” theory, as well.

    And until “forced treatment” is made illegal, which is what gives the psychologists and psychiatrists undeserved power. It’s highly unlikely we’ll be seeing too much “humility” in the “mental health professionals,” IMHO.

  • “Meaningful involvement of people with psychiatric disabilities and lived experience requires strong leadership.” I agree. But, based upon my experience, too many of the psychologists and psychiatrists are so hell bent on “maintaining the status quo.” In this time, after their DSM “bible” was debunked as “invalid.”

    That they have less than zero desire to listen to us researchers, who have “lived experience.” Who have found the medical evidence that their antidepressants and antipsychotics can create “psychosis” and “hallucinations,” via anticholinergic toxidrome. Plus, 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

    Likely because this information is medical evidence that destroys the “genetic etiological” theory of psychiatry’s “sacred symbol.”

    And, of course, Mr. Whitaker’s brilliant and complex research, which points out that both the ADHD drugs and antidepressants can create the “bipolar” symptoms. Which destroyed the “genetic etiological” theory of the “bipolar” diagnosis, did not go over well with too many of the psychiatrists either. Given the fact, the psychiatric leadership took this disclaimer 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.”

    Rather than adding the ADHD drugs to that disclaimer, as should have been done.

  • “However spirituality is not recognized by psychiatry (or by traditional leftists) as legitimate.” Nor the communists, very true, oldhead.

    And as one who was defamed and misdiagnosed, by a supposed “holist, Christian talk therapist,” for questioning the meaning of a powerful Spiritual dream. A therapist, who it eventually turned out to be, was a child abuse cover upper for her pastor, according to her own medical records, my child’s medical records, and actual events.

    Plus, I do now know that my childhood religion has systemically “partnered” with the “mental health” system, since employees from my childhood church confessed this to me. After I gave the pastor of that church a copy of Whitaker’s “Anatomy,” which discusses systemic child abuse, and shared some of my psychopharmacological research with them.

    Oh, and that original “holist, Christian talk therapist,” she called this “partnership” a “delusional religious conspiracy.” Apparently, that was my supposed initial “delusion,” which I knew nothing about at the time. When, in reality, this “partnership” is a systemic real life, medical/religious “conspiracy,” against all child abuse survivors, and their legitimately concerned family members. Blame the other with your own crimes, a classic Communist tactic.

    And covering up child abuse is, in fact, the number one actual societal function of today’s “mental health” system. And all of this systemic child abuse covering up, by the “mental health” industry, is by DSM design.

    And now that we all live in a “pedophile empire.”

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

    And the leaders of my childhood religion have turned themselves into systemic child abuse cover uppers, even according to the insiders of their synod offices.

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

    I’m quite certain we need to have a legitimate discussion about whether our pastors’ and “mental health professionals'” multibillion dollar, systemic child abuse covering up, scientifically “invalid,” system should be maintained.

    https://www.nimh.nih.gov/about/directors/thomas-insel/blog/2013/transforming-diagnosis.shtml

    The DSM “bible” is literally the basis of a systemic, child abuse covering up, religion. And, unfortunately, my childhood religion’s employees have adopted that systemic, child abuse covering up religion. But their theology is largely the antithesis of a Christian theology. Given the fact that the Holy Bible is quite clear, when it states:

    “But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea.”

    But, my oh my, when a Spirit led artist puts that quote on a painting. It turned my psychologist into a delusions of grandeur filled lunatic, who assumed she can hand over a classic thievery contract, under the guise of an “art manager” contract. And steal everything from the ethical, formerly Lutheran, banking families. But, of course, I said no thank you, as politely as I could. But many more times than I should to have had to say no.

    Thank you for the very interesting, and relevant, interview, Robert and Peter.

  • “It is no longer okay to make people think, or keep thinking that they are defective somehow.”

    When, and why, was this unethical behavior ever declared “okay?”

    “It’s a brave new world where labeling someone as inherently defective to get them to take deadly addicting drugs is considered supporting them.”

    And now the pharmaceutical industry is fear mongering the entire world into believing they all need to be vaccinated, with untested “vaccines,” of which they have zero liability. It’s all just sick and wrong.

  • Great, and very accurate, information regarding the neuroleptics. Thank you, Dr. Gøtzsche. And you are absolutely correct that the psychologists and psychiatrists lie to their clients and their families, claiming their “invalid” DSM disorders are “lifelong, incurable, genetic” illnesses. Which, of course, destroys marriages and takes away hope. Unless one knows, for a fact, that they have zero history of “mental illness” in their family.

    And, as one who was made “psychotic” with the neuroleptics, I will mention that the neuroleptics/antipsychotics can make people “psychotic,” via anticholinergic toxidrome.

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

    And, as to the relationship of “hearing voices” and childhood trauma. As the mother of a child abuse survivor, I learned the hard way that psychologists and psychiatrists often function as the child abuse covering up arms of the paternalistic religions, at least my childhood religion. The leaders, of which, are being pointed out, as the systemic child abuse covering up criminals, that they actually are, by the ethical within.

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

    But an ethical pastor of a different religion did confess the crimes, to which my family had been subjected, to be “the dirty little secret of the two original educated professions,” implying it’s likely most religions. And I have met with Catholic child abuse survivors’, and their parents, to whom I had to recommend Whitaker’s book, “Anatomy.”

    But since I was able to get my child away from the child molester quite quickly, my child was able to heal, and go from remedial reading, after the abuse, to graduating from university with highest honors (Phi Beta Kappa), even also winning a psychology award. His psychology professors couldn’t have gushed more about how brilliant and well adjusted my son was at his graduation.

    “If doctors get in trouble, they often deny what happened, and they might even change the written records.” Yes, I was handed over medical records with big black Sharpie marks all over them, covering up the name of a child abusing pastor, as well as his pedophile best friend’s, and his wife’s, names. And I was not handed over a few of my and my family’s medical records at all.

    And I will say, those ELCA psychologists I worked with will stop at nothing, to cover up their, or other psychologist’s, their pastor’s, bishop’s, and the psychiatrists’, systemic child abuse covering up and profiteering crimes.

    Thank you so much, for reporting on the truth, despite the attacks, Dr. Gøtzsche. In my personal opinion, you’re doing God’s work, while being defamed for being an ethical scientist. Thank you so much for all you are doing.

  • Since the psychological industry has been, for decades, misdiagnosing the common adverse and withdrawal symptoms of the psych drugs, with the “invalid” DSM disorders. Then they force people to go to the psychiatrists, with threats of “you better take all the meds as prescribed, or all the doctors will call you paranoid.”

    I’m quite certain that psychologists and therapists need to know a lot more than what’s in this article, about the psychiatric drugs. But, then again, most psychiatrists claim to be ignorant about the common adverse and withdrawal effects of the psych drugs, too.

    All the “mental health” workers should start with this basic information. The ADHD drugs and antidepressants can create the “bipolar” symptoms, both while taking them, and withdrawing from them.

    https://www.alternet.org/2010/04/are_prozac_and_other_psychiatric_drugs_causing_the_astonishing_rise_of_mental_illness_in_america/

    And they should also do research into the common symptoms of “antidepressant discontinuation syndrome.” Since some of us were put on an “antidepressant,” under other guises, like “it’s a safe smoking cessation med,” so didn’t even know we were put on a psych drug, by our unethical PCP.

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

    The antidepressants and antipsychotics, both anticholinergic drugs, can create “psychosis” and “hallucinations,” via anticholinergic toxidrome. So those drug classes should never be used in combination, but combining them is still the recommended “treatment” for all “bipolar” stigmatized today.

    https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/bipolar-disorder/diagnosis-treatment/drc-20355961

    All doctors, including the psychiatrists, were taught about anticholinergic toxidrome in med school, but for reasons of greed, this is not even mentioned in any of the psychiatrists’ DSMs. Thus, the psychiatric industry has intentionally misinformed all of the psychologists and therapists who listened to them.

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

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

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

    In other words, all the symptoms of the psychiatrists’ “serious DSM mental illnesses,” are also all the common adverse effects of the psychiatric drugs.

    Now I personally know not all psychologists and therapists are ignorant of all this. Since they have chosen to “conspire” or “partner” with, and become the systemic child abuse covering up arm of my former childhood religion. And they have turned the leaders and pastors of my former religion into systemic child abuse and rape cover uppers.

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

    And an ethical pastor of a different religion, did confess this problem to me to be “the dirty little secret of the two original educated professions.”

    https://stateofthenation2012.com/?p=59031

    But I do hope to see an end to “the dirty little secret of the two original educated professions.” And properly educate any of the non-medically trained “mental health” or “social” workers, who don’t actually know what’s going on, who actually want to help people. So they may actually function as the helpers, they claim to be, instead of just functioning as ignorant, satanic, hypocrites, for the psychiatrists.

  • No doubt, “Politics Pervade the Practice of Therapy.” Given the fact that all my so called “mental health” industry believed that distress caused by 9/11/2001, and the never ending wars that event brought about, was distress caused by a “chemical imbalance” in my brain alone.

    I had no idea the “mental health” workers harbored such an insane belief system, until I picked up my medical records from my former psychologist, and she confessed her insane “chemical imbalance” belief system to me.

    But the truth be told, psych drugs don’t make a person believe in the virtues of never ending wars, nor a government behaving in a completely fiscally irresponsible manner.

    And I’m not certain why anyone would want a relationship with someone who believed, “There is a power relationship between therapist and client with the therapist more powerful.”

    I believe all people are created as equal, thus I don’t want a relationship with someone who believes they should have power over me. And I’m quite certain an industry that believes they should have power over their clients, is a very anti-American industry.

    Plus when one can point out that the “therapists'” ADHD drugs and antidepressants can create the “bipolar” symptoms. And that their antipsychotics can create their “schizophrenia” symptoms, via anticholinergic toxidrome and neuroleptic induced deficit syndrome. And that none of the “therapists'” DSM disorders have any scientific validity. And that the psych drugs are killing “8 million” people every year. And that the vast majority of their clients are innocent child abuse survivors – NOT “dangerous” people, as the psychiatrists defame their clients to the world – meaning that the “therapists'” primary actual societal function is aiding, abetting, and empowering child abusers and pedophiles. And all this systemic child abuse covering up is by DSM design.

    Well, information is power too. And when the truth about the psychiatric and psychological industries is pointed out, the “therapists” no longer look too classy. And our society should think twice about giving them any power whatsoever. Since, I hope and pray, the majority of people don’t really want to be living in the systemic child abuse cover uppers’ “pedophile empire.”

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

    We can, and should, work to bring about a better world instead.

  • “The community inclusion movement articulates inclusion as a legal and human right, highlighting research showing that increased opportunities to live a meaningful life within a community ‘enhance general medical, cognitive, and mental health and wellness.'”

    But this would mean the insane psychological professions would need to end their recommendations that people “quit all your activities, and concentrate on the meds.” Thankfully, I didn’t take that extraordinary bad psychological advise, and did “live a meaningful life within” my community.

    So the psychiatrist who was anticholinergic toxidrome poisoning me, did finally bother to look at my work, and he concluded it was “work of smart female” and “insightful.” Thus he did conclude my, what turned out to be, according to my child’s medical records, child rape covering up Lutheran psychologist, had misdiagnosed me. And he weaned me off his neurotoxins, albeit prior to either him or I knowing the psychologist who’d misinformed him, had gotten all her misinformation about me, from child abusers.

    “It is well documented that individuals with serious mental illnesses are disadvantaged in their employment, educational attainment, social relationships, family relationships, and other areas, which are all social determinants of health.”

    I think a big part of the problem seems to be that “mental health” workers tend to assume that being a fiscally responsible young mother – who’d already made and saved enough, prior to having children, to pay for her half of her family’s home – while trying to properly raise her children, functioning as a very active volunteer, and artist working on her portfolio.

    Merely because us visual artists, working on our portfolios, in the hopes of future profits, rather than immediate profits. We are all considered “w/o work, content, and talent” and “unemployed,” by the “mental health professionals,” prior to them even looking at our work. At least that’s what my medical records prove as true.

    As one who was co-chairing a 250+ strong member volunteer school arts program, while I was being defamed and neurotoxic poisoned by “mental health” workers. I do agree, “Effective supports include, for example, arts participation.”

    But I also know my paternalistic childhood religion fraudulently claims they support the arts. When in reality their walls are bare, because they only fund support for the musical arts, not the visual arts. And this lack of funding for the visual arts, by the ELCA, did result in my Lutheran pastors and psychologist wanting to murder, and steal from artists like me, once they finally bothered to look at my work. Crimes of which I do have both medical and legal proof.

    I’m quite certain, that if the religions set up funding to support their visual artists, rather than just “conspiring” with the systemic child abuse covering up “mental health” system, we’d be living in a much more just and sane society.

    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 I will say, if the religions had actually supported their visual artists historically, their churches would now feel like museums, rather than having bare walls. Or stupid posters on their walls, because some people in their church saw the problem.

    And I say this because the places where my work is now displayed, do feel like museums, according to others. The visual artists are not actually “irrelevant to reality,” as the satanic, systemic, child abuse covering up “mental health” system – and my former religious leaders, for whom they systemically cover up child abuse – believe.

    Truly, the paternalistic psychological profession, who has been “conspiring” with the systemic, child abuse covering up, DSM deluded psychiatric profession, and their pastors, are on the wrong side. Murdering, and stealing from all the artists in America – merely because we are working for future profits, rather than immediate profits – is NOT the answer.

    The insane, systemic child abuse covering up, psychological and psychiatric industries, are the problem. Now that we all live in a “pedophile empire,” whose monetary system is being imploded, by the powers that shouldn’t be.

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

    Gosh, but some satanic, systemic child abuse covering up “mental health” workers, neurotoxic poisoned me, right after 9/11/2001, because I knew the wrong banksters had taken control of this planet, decades ago.

    But now that the globalist banksters are imploding our entire monetary system, maybe “mental health professionals” and pastors should learn to listen to the ethical, and fiscally responsible banking families, that had made your religions millions, decades ago? And had helped to make America great.

    And maybe you should garner some insight into Jesus’ theology, since it is one of repentance and turning from one’s evil ways, not one of free forgiveness. And one that says God is the judge, not the systemic child abuse covering up psychological or psychiatric, who are the judges of humanity.

    The psychological, psychiatric and therapy industries, who mostly know nothing about the “inclusion movement,” and are merely functioning as systemic child abuse cover uppers for the mainstream religions, need to repent, and change from their evil ways. As do the paternalistic religions, who chose to enter into a faustian deal, and participate in “the dirty little secret of the two original educated professions.”

    It’s just appalling that the medical, “mental health,” religious, and pharmaceutical industries are literally running a multibillion dollar, systemic child abuse covering up system, that has resulted in us all now living in a “pedophile empire.” Let’s hope and pray all are judged fairly by God.

  • But I will say, as an artist – and psychopharmacological researcher – I didn’t know the art industry had been taken over by pedophilia and satanic “Spirit cookers,” until years ago, either. My go to articles, pointing this out are no longer on the internet. But here’s an article that touches on this societal problem.

    https://www.sott.net/article/334002-Progressive-liberal-values-Tony-Podestas-creepy-taste-in-art-the-creepy-people-he-hangs-out-with-and-Pizzagate

    But, of course, the systemic child abuse covering up crimes of the so called “mental health” system, does relate to the crimes going on within my apparently now pedophile, and satanic “Spirit cooking” headed up industry, and former religion.

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

    Had I known, two decades ago, that my childhood religion had partnered with the systemic child abuse covering up “mental health” industry, I would never have trusted in either the systemic, child abuse covering up doctors, nor the systemic child abuse covering up pastors and bishops of my former religion.

    So, we do all suffer from lack of full information, and can sometimes make the mistake of trusting in people, who do not deserve trust. God forbid, I used to believe doctors and pastors were trustworthy people.

    Now I know they no longer are, since we’re all now living in a “pedophile empire,” largely due to the mainstream psychologists’ and psychiatrists’ and mainstream religions’ systemic child abuse covering up “dirty little secret of the two original educated professions'” satanic system.

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

  • “The criteria used to diagnose ‘schizophrenia’ (and all other psychiatric ‘disorders’) are fundamentally arbitrary. Psychiatric ‘disorders’ are invented, not discovered. They are not falsifiable.”

    You can sometimes prove they’re false. For example, if you had the common adverse or withdrawal symptoms of an antidepressant misdiagnosed as “bipolar.” Whitaker’s book ‘Anatomy’ – and even all DSMs prior to the DSM5 – state that is a false diagnosis.

    Plus, if you are made “psychotic” with an antidepressant and/or antipsychotic, and get a “schizophrenia” label. If you point out to an ethical doctor that both the antidepressants and/or antipsychotics can create “psychosis,” via anticholinergic toxidrome. And since anticholinergic toxidrome is not the same thing as “schizophrenia,” obviously the”invented” “schizophrenia” label was a false diagnosis. And the same applies to the negative symptoms of “schizophrenia,” since they can be created, via neuroleptic induced deficit syndrome.

    So both “bipolar” and “schizophrenia” can be pointed out to be iatrogenic illnesses, created with the psych drugs. As opposed to “life long, incurable, genetic” illnesses, as both “bipolar” and “schizophrenia” are claimed to be, by most of the pharmaceutical misinformed “mental health” workers.

    I haven’t read Peterson’s books, and I do know many of the psychologists are still in denial of the scientific fraud of the “mental health,” and particularly the psychiatric, DSM deluded industry. But it is rather sad, Peterson is still standing in support of his belief in “schizophrenia.”

    I guess he’s been sick for a while, so doesn’t even know what’s going on in his own industry.

  • That’s the opposite of informed consent, but it has been my experience that psychologists and psychiatrists do nothing but blatantly lie to people.

    However, now that I expect this from them. When I’m forced to deal with an unsolicited psychologist, who incorrectly assumes things about me – like I would want him to take control of all my money, and steal all profits from my work – as one unsolicited psychologist assumed not long ago.

    At least I was able to prevent him from making an ass out of me, by saying no. Albeit, I had to say no, way too many times. But I was not able to prevent him from making an ass out of himself, despite having told him that I did not want him to steal from me, prior to him even handing over his classic thievery contract. The arrogance, and outright criminality, of the psychologists and psychiatrists is truly staggering.

    I do understand it’s a shame for them, that their DSM “bible” has been debunked as “invalid.” But I hope they may come to grips with reality, at some point. Especially since maintaining a “status quo,” where one’s industry is killing “8 million” innocent people every year, is not a “status quo” that should be maintained.

  • The psychiatrists, and all medical doctors, were taught in med school, that both the antidepressants and antipsychotics can create “psychosis,” via anticholinergic toxidrome.

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

    When the doctors lie to their patients, claiming this is “impossible,” they are committing crimes against humanity, and of course against their patients. Let’s hope and pray all the criminal doctors are judged fairly by God.

    Thank you so much, Peter, for all your truth telling.

  • “Adverse physiological symptoms of antidepressant withdrawal are regularly mistaken to be other problems to the detriment of the patient.”

    Don’t forget about the millions and millions of us who had the common symptoms of antidepressant discontinuation syndrome misdiagnosed as “bipolar.” All, apparently, because the “mental health” workers weren’t intelligent enough to even read their DSM-IV-TR, which clearly states:

    “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.”

    And due to all that systemic malpractice, brilliantly pointed out in Whitaker’s book “Anatomy of an Epidemic.” The lovely APA psychiatrists took that disclaimer OUT of their DSM5, rather than adding the ADHD drugs to that disclaimer, ensuring even more systemic iatrogenic harm of patients.

  • “Practitioners should consider any and all means of accessing and interfacing with these youth and their families, including with virtual programming and addressing other co-occurring psychiatric symptoms, such as depression and anxiety.”

    Adults should let children be children, not attack them utilizing “any and all means of accessing and interfacing with these youth and their families.” And those adults who are advocating attacking children – whether psychiatrists, psychologists, therapists, social worker, et al – need to garner insight into the fact that your DSM “bible” of “mental illnesses” was debunked as scientifically “invalid” eight years ago.

    https://www.nimh.nih.gov/about/directors/thomas-insel/blog/2013/transforming-diagnosis.shtml

    For good reason. All those on this website should know exactly why. All those visiting the website, who don’t already know that “the two most serious mental illnesses” are iatrogenic illnesses, created with the psych drugs. Should do their research into Whitaker’s research, as well as my medical research, pointing out the iatrogenic etiology of “schizophrenia,” on this website.

    But this does mean that “mental health” workers, continuing to attempt to defame children with “depression” or “anxiety,” so you may neurotoxic poison the children with your psych drugs, is also inappropriate human behavior. Leave other people’s children alone, and learn to live and let live instead.

    But I know doing such, is extraordinary difficult for the “mental health” industry. Since I’ve twice been attacked by child abuse covering up psychologists, who definitely didn’t know how to live and let live.

    The first one assumed, and made an ass out of herself and me. The second one also made incorrect assumptions about me, after one lunch, and looking at my work. I tried to prevent that non-clinically trained psychologist from making an ass out of himself, but he did so anyway. But at least he hasn’t made an ass out of me, yet.

    But since the corruption of America, by the globalist corporations’ systems, and their lawyers, pastors, bishops, “mental health” workers,” bankers, and judges, is staggering at this point. I certainly can’t say I will be able to prevent them from stealing more from me.

    But I can pray, God, please continue to protect and provide for my family, and all the decent Americans, and the decent people on this planet.

  • I, too, ran into a thief in a hospital. I’m pretty certain it was the hospital psychiatrist. And that psychiatrist was very angry she was unable to hospitalize me forever, the first time I had the misfortune of being medically unnecessarily shipped to her, and her now FBI convicted partner in crime.

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

    That hospital psychiatrist then started fraudulently listing me as her “out patient,” which lasted for at least seven years, initially unbeknownst to me. Despite the fact I’d never personally chosen her as my psychiatrist. I eventually learned she was doing this, from a health insurance company. And the only reason she may have stopped fraudulently listing me as her “out patient,” was because I informed her lackeys, who’d called me to see why I didn’t show up for an appointment. That since I’d moved out of state, obviously I didn’t make an appointment with her. And I mentioned the common sense reality, that they’d all been seen as the criminals that they are, if they did not knock it off.

    Plus, it was hospital staff that took my jewelry for “safe keeping,” and hospital staff that returned a fake gold bangle bracelet, in stead of my $5000 antique real gold and garnet bangle bracelet. Thieves in the hospitals, indeed.

    Not to mention the $30,000 they defrauded from my health insurance company, for their medically unnecessary treatment of a non-existent “chronic airway obstruction.” Which they, apparently, had hoped to turn into an unneeded tracheotomy, since that was the scam, for which Kuchipudi was eventually convicted.

    Well, actually child abuse is mentioned in the DSM, but the DSM outright makes child abuse a non-billable trauma. Which means the “mental health” workers must misdiagnose child abuse survivors, with the billable DSM disorders, in order to get paid. Which, of course, distracts from the real issue at hand.

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

    But I couldn’t agree more about the absurdity of an industry that is neurotoxic poisoning people – due to distress, as opposed to real illness – that completely denies the reality that trauma and traumatic events can cause distress.

    I also agree, “Trauma is not a mental illness; it is an emotional and physical reaction that can be healed.” So long as one is not neurotoxic poisoned, and the trauma is NOT denied.

    As the mother of a child abuse survivor, who did get my child away from the child abusers fairly quickly. And I was able to keep my child away from the loony psychiatrist and school social worker, who thought drugging up a healing child – years after the abuse – is how to deal with a well behaved child who went from remedial reading in first grade, after the child abuse, to getting 100% on his state standardized tests in eighth grade. Yes, healing from trauma is possible.

    But I can say with 100% certainty, from personal experience and lots of research, the “mental health” and social worker industries – and CPS – are all about covering up child abuse, not preventing it.

    The “mental health” industries really do need to be called out for being the systemic child abuse cover uppers, and child abusers, that they are.

    https://www.alternet.org/2010/04/are_prozac_and_other_psychiatric_drugs_causing_the_astonishing_rise_of_mental_illness_in_america/

    And when the “mental health” industries misdiagnose the common adverse and withdrawal symptoms of the antidepressants and ADHD drugs, in over a million children as “bipolar.” Resulting in the subsequent neurotoxic poisoning of those children with the antipsychotics. Those industries are systemic child abusing – actually child “torturing” – industries.

    http://www.narpa.org/reference/un-forced-psychiatric-treatment-is-torture

    And our country is not benefitted by having systemic child abuse covering up, child abusing – and pedophile aiding, abetting, and empowering – “mental health” industries. Quite to the contrary, we’re all now living in a “pedophile empire.”

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

    Thank you for sharing your very important story, which exemplifies this systemic child abuse covering up problem, of the so called “mental health” industries, Tabitha.

  • “Involuntary Hospitalization Deters Youth from Seeking Mental Healthcare,” it likely deters people of all ages from seeking “mental healthcare.” Since once the “therapeutic” relationship is gone, it is gone. Once one has experienced, first hand, the criminal and violent nature of forced treatment, one wants nothing to do with any of the “mental health,” or even mainstream medical, thugs. But that’s one more reason why forced treatment should be made illegal.

    However, it should be mentioned that force treatment is illegally being used by the criminal doctors, like this, now FBI convicted, one.

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

    Who illegally force treated me for a non-existent “chronic airway obstruction,” according to medical records. Because he – and his psychiatric “snowing” partner in crime – had hoped to have an unneeded tracheotomy done on me, for profit. Or murder me for parts, since I used to be an organ donor? I can’t be totally certain of their nefarious motives.

    Nonetheless, forced treatment should be made illegal.

  • And basically all the psychiatric industry has done, since the Nazi days, is find mind altering drug classes that can make people sick. And change the word ‘eugenic,’ to the word ‘genetic.’

    When, in reality, the word that should be used to describe the psychiatrists’ DSM disorders, is iatrogenic. Given the fact that the ADHD drugs and antidepressants can create the “bipolar” symptoms.

    And the antipsychotics (aka neuroleptics) can create both the negative and positive symptoms of “schizophrenia,” via NIDS and anticholinergic toxidrome.

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

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

    The systemic crimes of the psychiatric profession continue, and they are not as “complex,” as the psychiatrists’ would like the world to believe.

    What is more difficult to come to grips with, is the pure evil, of what the psychiatric system is doing. Their modern day psychiatric holocaust is killing “8 million” innocent people worldwide, every year.

    https://www.nimh.nih.gov/about/directors/thomas-insel/blog/2015/mortality-and-mental-disorders.shtml

  • Thank you, Jennifer, it’s so rare to see a lawyer speaking out against the deficits and harms of the psychiatric industry, let alone they take cases of legitimate harm, which the lawyers largely don’t do.

    I totally agree with your conclusions. Thank you for this common sense discussion of the importance of informed consent, and the need for the respect of the wisdom of the ‘experts by experience,” who also became psychopharmacological researchers, out of necessity.

    The only problem is that if the doctors were required to actually give informed consent to patients, prior to prescribing the psych drugs. This means they’d have to confess to a fact they were all taught in med school. Which is that both the antidepressants and antipsychotics can create “psychosis,” via anticholinergic toxidrome.

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

    And if they truthfully confessed to this reality, it’s not likely anyone would ever agree to take either of those drug classes ever again. The ADHD drugs can also create “psychosis.” And my heart breaks every time I think of a film I saw of beautiful woman, whose life was destroyed by benzo withdrawal.

    Truly, the doctors have systemically betrayed their clients, largely by trusting in the psychiatrists. I was merely trying to mentally comprehend this horrendous, and almost unbelievable, staggering in scope, betrayal in 2009.

    But now I know, based upon my – and important others’ – subsequent medical research findings, that it does need to be made known, that the psychiatric and psychological industries – worldwide – have literally been murdering “8 million” innocent people – every year – with their made up, and scientifically “invalid” DSM diagnoses, and with their neurotoxic psychiatric drugs.

    https://www.nimh.nih.gov/about/directors/thomas-insel/blog/2013/transforming-diagnosis.shtml
    https://www.nimh.nih.gov/about/directors/thomas-insel/blog/2015/mortality-and-mental-disorders.shtml

    Our modern day psychiatric holocaust needs to end. Thank you, Jennifer, for speaking out against it. Especially since the majority of your profession is NOT even taking cases against the psychiatrists.

  • As one of the millions of people who had the common symptoms of antidepressant discontinuation syndrome misdiagnosed as “bipolar,” way back in 2001, resulting in an anticholinergic toxidrome induced living hell of drug cocktails. Since the psychiatrists’ recommended treatments for “bipolar,” very literally, are a recipe for how to make people “psychotic,” via anticholinergic toxidrome.

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

    I’m very grateful to all of you for exposing this problem, of the doctors claiming to be ignorant of the adverse and withdrawal effects of the antidepressants, and other psych drugs. Despite the fact, all doctors – including the psychiatrists – were taught all about anticholinergic toxidrome in med school.

  • Tim, I don’t really know what kind of “mental health” worker you are. Oh, a MFT; but the reality is most the DSM “bible” thumpers’ believe in the scientific fraud based, “invalid,” DSM billing code “bible.”

    https://www.nimh.nih.gov/about/directors/thomas-insel/blog/2013/transforming-diagnosis.shtml

    But you seem to be largely speaking to social workers, in this blog. So I will say all your statements that those dealing with “psychosis” are treated as “loved ones,” by the “mental health” workers, of any sort, is honestly, absurd. And 100% the opposite of reality. Plus, referring to “psychotic” people, and others, as “loved ones,” makes reading this article very confusing.

    “There is a very poor, medicalized understanding of what psychosis is.” No kidding. I have medical proof – in my medical records – that the child abuse covering up Lutheran psychologists believe all dreams, gut instincts, belief in the Holy Spirit, or one’s own life, is “psychosis.” That means my former “mental health” workers believe all people – including all who dream or believe in God – are “psychotic.”

    “It’s also important to assist your loved one in adhering to the requirements of work or making it possible for them to continue to socially network and have a social life.” But my psychologist told me to “quit all your activities and concentrate on the meds.” Good thing I did not abide by that extremely stupid psychological advice.

    “denying everything the person experiences,” was exactly what my psychologist and psychiatrists did. I had to leave my psychiatrist once he, very literally – including in his medical records – declared my entire life to be “a credible fictional story.”

    “unless I trust you and feel safe to speak about a misperception or two, words that define my experiences elude me.” It’s not too hard to explain an antidepressant and/or antipsychotic induced anticholinergic toxidrome “psychosis,” since it was just the “voices” of the child abusers trying to harass me. But I will say a drug withdrawal induced “super sensitivity manic psychosis” is much harder to explain, to anyone. Because it was more like a staggeringly serendipitous awakening to my dreams, where all are connected, and living in perfect harmony and timing with all others. Where music, people’s vanity license plates, street signs all worked as “signs from God” to tell the story of the awakening to my dreams. It’s something too amazing, perfect, and serendipitous to easily explain. A lyrical libretto that only God could have orchestrated.

    “Just remember, you don’t want to come down forcefully on the side of your loved one’s punitive state administrators.” Isn’t that the precise job of the “mental health,” including social workers’ system?

    “Consider the ways that some positive spiritual experiences really don’t need to be healed.” When one has a dream one is “moved by the Holy Spirit,” and questions that very powerful dream. The appropriate response is “all that means is that the Holy Spirit has chosen to move you,” as an ethical pastor eventually said. But my earlier “mental health” workers were Holy Spirit blasphemers, who thought that dream was “psychosis” proving I had a “life long, incurable, genetic mental illness.” Wrong. You are correct, Tim, some positive spiritual experiences do not need to be healed.

    “Do not forget that psychosis, special messages, or a break from reality is a collection of experiences. When you force your loved ones to defy their experiences and accept your reality via reality check, it is really about you imposing consensus reality on them and it puts you on the side of social control. They may know better.” Especially since the “mental health” workers do not actually have any proof that God, the Holy Spirit, the spiritual realm – including the dream world – do not exist. And it is, technically, illegal to drug people up for belief in God in the US.

    “Thus, differentiating yourself from the state becomes an important strategy.” Although, if the social workers are actually employed by the state, such would be an unethical thing for them to do.

    “consensus reality, which might be full of ignorance and propaganda.” I’m pretty certain “consensus reality” is full of ignorance and propaganda. Since we’re living in a country that has made it legal for the government to lie to the masses, most our “news” is now “fake news,” and they are now censoring the internet as fast as they can. And this disingenuous goal of the state is not new, a 1981 quote from the former head of the CIA:

    “We’ll know our disinformation program is complete when everything the American public believes is false.”

    “Give them transparent information about what you have said and done on their behalf.” Well, at least my former doctor’s nurses, and “mental health” workers, did finally hand over written proof of their medical / religious, real life “conspiracy” to cover up a “bad fix” on a broken bone of mine, and the medical evidence of the abuse of my child, eventually. And systemically covering up child abuse is the primary actual societal function of both the psychological and psychiatric wings of our “mental health” industry.

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

    “But most importantly, differentiate yourself from the organizations that impose social control and discriminatory laws on your loved one.” Again, I’m quite certain this is an unethical thing for state employees to do. Pretending a person is a “loved one,” pretending you’re a “helping professional,” there to help them. When in reality your goal is to defame / DSM stigmatize and neurotoxic poison a person for the state or a religion or any other institution, is unethical.

  • “Todd insists that there is no meaningful way ever to challenge the psychiatrist’s authority.” I absolutely agree the psychiatrists have been given way too much power. And we all know that “power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely.” So that’s what the psychiatrists have done to themselves.

    Which means there may be a way to challenge their authority.

    Point out that the psychiatrists’ neuroleptics / antipsychotics and antidepressants can create “psychosis” and “hallucinations” – positive symptoms of “schizophrenia” – via anticholinergic toxidrome. A toxidrome is a medically known way to intentionally poison a person.

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

    And the neuroleptics / antipsychotics can also create the negative symptoms of “schizophrenia,” via NIDS.

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

    Yet neither of these medically known toxidrome / syndrome is even listed in the psychiatrists’ “bullshit,” debunked DSM “bible.” I’m glad Todd was able to escape.

    https://www.wired.com/2010/12/ff-dsmv/
    https://www.nimh.nih.gov/about/directors/thomas-insel/blog/2013/transforming-diagnosis.shtml

    And it should be made illegal for psychiatrists to force “treat” people with drugs. That all doctors were taught in med school – including the psychiatrists – can create both the positive and negative symptoms of “schizophrenia.”

    My medical research findings were confirmed by the head of family medicine at one of America’s top hospitals. And that doctor had me teach his students this as well. Likely, in addition to the fact, that now that we all live in the information age, the psychiatric industry’s “bullshit” should no longer be considered acceptable.

  • I don’t know a lot about psychedelics, other than my psych drug withdrawal induced “super sensitivity manic psychoses” were a lot like what I’ve read an ayahuasca or mushroom trip is like, only they both lasted about three months. Thankfully, for me, both my psych drug withdrawal induced “super sensitivity manic psychoses” were good trips.

    I am listening to a pod cast as I type, and one of the guys just said, “living the dream.” That was a common thought during the drug withdrawal induced awakenings to my dream world.

    But I couldn’t agree more that psychiatrists, who like to do ten minute “med checks.” Psychiatry has done nothing but lie to the public – and their clients – for decades, certainly should not be involved in prescribing psychedelics. For goodness sakes, none of my psychiatrists even knew anything about the common adverse and withdrawal effects of their own psych drugs.

  • And many “mental health” workers hubrisly proclaimed, they knew nothing about the common adverse and withdrawal effects of the antidepressants, until 2005.

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

    Maybe those hubris controlled “mental health” workers, who knew next to nothing about the common adverse effects of the drugs they forced onto innocent others. Thus misdiagnosed innocent people, should wake the f-ck up, and start utilizing their malpractice insurance for what it is intended.

  • “The sticking diagnosis problem is an awfully good reason not to see a psychiatrist.” I do agree. However, it is not “impossible” to get a psychiatric or psychological misdiagnosis off one’s medical records.

    If you are able to find an ethical and self confident doctor, like for example, as in my case, the head of family medicine of one of the most well respected hospitals in the world. And you calmly medically explain how, and the unethical motives for why, you were misdiagnosed.

    You can sometimes get an ethical doctor – but make sure he is not related or affiliated in any way, to the prior malpractice committing doctors – to take the prior DSM misdiagnosis off your medical records.

    And for anyone misdiagnosed with the “serious mental illnesses,” like “bipolar” or “schizophrenia,” explaining this to an ethical doctor may work to help you get the DSM misdiagnosis off your medical records.

    If you happened to have been prescribed an antidepressant or ADHD drug, prior to your “serious mental illness” misdiagnosis, as I unknowingly was. I happened to be prescribed a dangerous antidepressant by a disingenuous PCP, under the guise of a “safe smoking cessation med.”

    But I think there’s now enough evidence about the adverse and withdrawal effects of the antidepressants out there, that this may also work for someone who had the adverse or withdrawal effects of the antidepressants, given for any reason, get a “serious mental illness” misdiagnosis off their medical records.

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

    Robert Whitaker’s work, and his “Anatomy of an Epidemic,” is of course, invaluable. Many thanks to Mr. Whitaker. Start by sharing his work and book. And the fact that even the DSM-IV-TR knew it was morally wrong to misdiagnose the common adverse effects of the antidepressants as “bipolar” or “schizophrenia.”

    https://www.behaviorismandmentalhealth.com/2009/09/06/bipolar-disorder-is-not-an-illness/

    And for anyone who was misdiagnosed with a “schizophrenia” diagnosis. The negative symptoms of “schizophrenia” can be created with the “gold standard schizophrenia treatments,” via neuroleptic induced deficit syndrome.

    And if a person was misdiagnosed, due to the positive symptoms of “schizophrenia,” like “psychosis” and “hallucinations.” Those symptoms can be created, via anticholinergic toxidrome. A medically known way to poison a person, that is missing from the psychiatric DSM.

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

    And all doctors were taught this in med school. So any ethical doctor should theoretically take a “serious mental illness” misdiagnosis off your medical records, if you point this “evidence based” medical evidence out to them.

    Thank you for your honesty, Peter.

  • No offense, but the fact that there are no comments on this blog after 3 days, likely reflects the reality that most “mental health” workers do NOT treat their “Patients as Partners.” I sure as heck know, mine did NOT. I had to leave my psychiatrist, once he’d admitted to my face – and in his medical records – that he’d literally declared my entire life to be a “credible fictional story.”

    Since he had gotten all his misinformation about me, from a psychologist, who’d gotten all her misinformation about me, according to her medical records, from a child abusing Lutheran pastor and his pedophile “soul mate.”

    But I do agree, psychologists and psychiatrists should start actually listening to their patients, instead of getting all their information from pedophiles, and the mainstream religious pedo protectors.

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

  • “So why is it even necessary to discuss such a ‘topic’?”

    Because many psychiatrists and psychologists are still regularly defaming their clients, and those of us who stand against child abuse, as “violent” or “dangerous.” Despite the reality that the vast majority (likely over 80%) of the psychologists’ and psychiatrists’ clients (the DSM defamed) are child abuse victims, NOT “violent” perpetrators of crimes.

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

    But I do totally agree, oldhead, defaming people with “hateful labels such as ‘mental illness’ [are systemic crimes] against humanity.” As is participating in a multibillion dollar, primarily child abuse covering up – and child abusing – system, and/or attempting to “maintain” that satanic “status quo.”

    Especially since the DSM “status quo” was confessed to be scientifically “invalid” 8 years ago, by the head of the NIMH. And the psychiatric “status quo” is murdering “8 million” – largely innocent victims of crime – every year, also according to the head of NIMH, with their psychiatric neurotoxins.

  • As one who was told to turn off music that spoke to me, by a psychologist. When in reality, music is all about the human experience. And art, in general, is all about the human experience, in the time in which one lives. At least, that’s what I was taught to record, in my artwork, in art school.

    The “mental health workers” are now terrified of my now “too truthful,” “insightful,” “work of smart female,” artwork. Since their systemic child abuse covering up crimes are evident within my work. I’d very much like to see the “mental health professions” end their systemic child abuse covering up system.

    I’ll try and get a Covid piece I planned to do, done in the next month. It won’t be a pointillism piece, as I had previously planned to do. But I’ll try to get a piece done, in a timely enough manner, that it can be included in your show.

    But I’m not ready to pay a professional photographer to properly photo document my work, so I don’t know if the free cropping services online, will give me a good enough image for your show. You really should give artists more than one month, to give you a piece. Since those artists who were “professionally” trained, do artwork that takes much more than a month, to create, and have properly photo documented.

  • “It is medical malpractice to make a new diagnosis, as if there is something wrong with the patient, when the condition could be a harm caused by the medication. Psychiatrists do this all the time.”

    Yes, especially when it comes to psychiatry’s “bipolar epidemic.” Thank you for all you do, and for your honesty, Peter. And your desire to actually help people.

    I am curious, however, do you happen to know of any good research which documents what percentage of people who received a “bipolar diagnosis” in the past half century, are actually people who’ve had the common adverse and withdrawal symptoms of the antidepressants and/or ADHD drugs, misdiagnosed as “bipolar?”

    I can’t find any research studies which answer this question, and it strikes me as something which deserves at least one research study. Or maybe, such research is hidden behind pay walls? But my local library is kind to us researchers, and does tend to get us such studies, if we request them specifically.

    But my guess is those research studies may not actually exist, since the psychiatrists are likely not interested in researching into their own, systemic malpractice. So it will likely need to be some other “profession,” or an organization like MiA, that researches into this issue.

  • As one who was taught to respect MLK Jr. long ago, by my family, in part because I share a birthday with him. But also because my father was put on loan, by Citibank, to Vernon Jordan, to help him turn the National Urban League, into a fiscally viable non-profit.

    I find this as an interesting article. But, please, know that all white people, who have historically helped the black people, are NOT satanic, as our mainstream media claims us to be.

    And we believe we need to end the “divide and conquer” theology of our government. And the fear and/or hate based, divide and conquer theology of the scientific fraud base “mental health professionals,” is a huge part of that societal problem.

    Thanks for the interview, Donzaleigh and Amy. And I must agree, those of us who stand in support of love, and against the never ending wars. Thus we are the “creatively maladjusted,” according to the “mental health” industry. Our life, work, and concerns should be given more of a voice, as opposed to being silenced.

  • “Even when injuries aren’t acquired, restraint can lead to an erosion of trust, with patients unsure whether the staff member they approach will be caring or violent.”

    Absolutely, true. I did trust the head of family medicine, at one of the most well respected hospitals in the US, to take the psychological and psychiatric malpractice I’d dealt with, off my medical records, and he did. Maybe, because I’d dealt with this now FBI arrested criminal doctor, previously.

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

    Plus, I pointed out the common malpractice I’d dealt with, which Robert Whitaker pointed out in his book, “Anatomy of an Epidemic.” As well as the fact that the antipsychotics can create “psychosis,” via anticholinergic toxidrome. And 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

    But a knowledge of all this, does leave a person with a lack of respect, and trust, in the medical community, in general. Particularly, the mainstream psychologists and psychiatrists, who claim to be “experts” in the drugs they force onto innocent others, but now claim to know nothing about.

  • “We need to seriously consider how to build a society that doesn’t make people so sick – psychologically or otherwise. That discussion is a political one.”
    .
    Well, actually the discussion does need to be a political and financial one, since the globalist banksters, who control the politicians, and large corporations, like the drug companies, are the problem.

    But I do agree, “It concerns what kinds of policies will allow people to thrive, and what kinds of strategies are needed to get there. I hope the media can start talking about that, and not about a mysterious, simultaneous failure of brain chemistry.”

    Yes, the psychiatrists’ and psychologists’ “chemical imbalance” theory, widely propagandized by the mainstream media, via the drug companies – yet disproven as true, decades ago – does need to end. It’s called false advertising, and it’s technically illegal in the US.

  • “Whether the attitudes were fueled by feelings of academic supremacy, sexism, paternalism, or blatant disrespect,” …. Definitely, these are all – too often – personal problems of the psychiatrists. Not to mention the psychiatrists’ ignorance of the common adverse effects of the drugs, in which they claim to be “experts” at prescribing.

    Thank you, Kevin, for sharing Jennifer’s good works. Forty two is the age when I escaped psychiatry, initially. I always knew 42 was my lucky number, but didn’t know why, until I was 42. I’m so sorry Jennifer died so young.

    My condolences to you, all her clients, and to her family and loved ones, on everyone’s loss. Am I allowed to ask whether her untimely death, was likely caused by the psychiatric malpractice, in her youth?

    Nonetheless, many thanks to you, Kevin, for your exposure of psychiatry’s harms of our children. Thankfully, I was able to keep the psychiatrists away from my children – since the psychologists, psychiatrists, and social workers attacked me first, instead of my very young children.

    But I’ve met lots of younger people, who were attacked by psychiatry – who know psychiatry’s crimes against our children, and humanity – need to be exposed, and ended. Thanks for all you do, Kevin. And again, my condolences to all.

    And I absolutely agree, “It’s About Childhood & Family.” It’s about love, not the fear and hate mongering, the psychiatrists’, and their “elite” are pushing.

  • ” The drugs (which they know nothing about, why would they?)” although many psychologists do lie to their clients, and their families, claiming the psychiatrists “know everything about the meds.”

    But what’s truly sad is both psychiatrists and psychologists often claim ignorance of the reality that the ADHD drugs and antidepressants can create the “bipolar” symptoms.

    https://www.alternet.org/2010/04/are_prozac_and_other_psychiatric_drugs_causing_the_astonishing_rise_of_mental_illness_in_america/

    As well as the fact all medical doctors, including psychiatrists, were taught in med school, that both the antidepressants and antipsychotics can create the positive symptoms of “schizophrenia,” via anticholinergic toxidrome.

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

    As well as, the negative symptoms of “schizophrenia,” via neuroleptic induced deficit syndrome.

    Most doctors, deny these systemic crimes, but not all doctors deny them. Some doctors do have ethics, and common decency. Like the former head of family medicine at one of the Cleveland Clinics, who has a lot more credibility, than my formers doctors, whose life’s goal was attempting to murder me, to cover up their “bad fix” on my broken bone, the medical evidence of the abuse of my child, and all their psychological defamation of my character.

  • It was a conservatorship contract that a child abuse and psychiatric malpractice covering up psychologist handed me, under the guise of an “art manager” contract. I went to the police, and reported him.

    The policeman seemed impressed that I understood the criminality of such a contract, so claimed to file a police report, hopefully he actually did. Absolutely, these type contracts are quite criminal, and regularly used by criminals, to steal – or attempt to steal – from artists. Let’s hope, “people are paying attention.”

  • “Psychologists/psychiatrists that I have seen have all been detached, showing no real interest in me, often not even knowing what I was talking about. Definitely not listening.”

    My psychologist, according to her medical records, and my child’s medical records, actually ran off like a manic lunatic and got all her misinformation about me from child abusers and pedophiles, which was – no doubt – illegal.

    My psychiatrist bought all their lies, rather than listening to me, and in the end, literally declared my entire life to be a “credible fictional story.” After I’d confronted him with all his delusions about me, written in his medical records. Of course, that’s when you need to leave your insanely deluded psychiatrist.

    Thanks for sharing your story, Chris. I’m glad you’re finally giving up on “mental health care.” Based upon my experience with them, and subsequent research. I would say the majority of psychologists and psychiatrists are useless, at best, and mass murderers, at worst – “8 million” killed EVERY year, based upon their “invalid” disorders, and with their neurotoxic psychiatric drugs.

    Truly, it’s shameful. They sure as heck, ought not be belittling their innocent clients. They should be repenting instead.

  • I agree, psychiatry’s random “looking for the right drug cocktail,” is largely the opposite of “precision psychiatry.” But that’s who and what psychiatry seems to have chosen to become, those who “tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it ….”

    “If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”

    Thus being, am I correct in understanding, that psychiatry’s goal, is in effect, destroying the leaders of the US? Just like they did during Nazi led Germany, and seemingly also in Bolshevik led Russia?

    Psychiatry is just repeating the worst of history, by design?

  • They call themselves “Fierce Pharma” for a reason. It’s a shame how much big Pharma has corrupted the medical literature, thus the entire medical industry.

    https://www.amazon.com/Truth-About-Drug-Companies-Deceive/dp/0375760946

    And now the doctors and nurses are being called “heroes,” as we’re living through – possibly the biggest medical / pharmaceutical industrial complex hoax in world history – except the hoax that’s been propagated against all of Western civilization, by the psychiatric industry, for decades, or maybe even centuries?

  • “Chlorpromazine is remembered as the first antipsychotic, a name that tells of how it was a specific antidote to psychosis.” But the reality is that every doctor is taught in med school that both the antidepressants and the antipsychotics can CREATE “psychosis,” via anticholinergic toxidrome.

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

    A medically known way to poison a person, that is inexplicably missing from the psychiatrists’ DSM “bible.”

    But this, in part, explains why “those using antipsychotic medication, on the whole, were more likely to be actively psychotic, anxious and functionally impaired.”

    “Antipsychotics, rather than serve as an antidote to psychosis, may worsen those symptoms over the long term, and, more broadly, worsen the long-term course of schizophrenia and other psychotic disorders.”

    Indeed, they can CREATE “psychosis” in the short term, via anticholinergic toxidrome; and CREATE “psychosis,” in the long term, or during a drug withdrawal induced, “super sensitivity manic psychosis,” as well.

    “Six times more likely to recover.

    “Those were the words that would stick, and for many, they would be words that would break their hearts.” Heartbreaking, indeed.

    Especially, when people learn that we are currently living through – by far – the largest psychiatric holocaust in recorded history. Given the fact, that “8 million” innocent people (mostly child abuse survivors, NOT “dangerous” criminals, as the psychiatric industry routinely defames their clients) are being killed – EVERY year – with the “invalid” DSM disorders, and the neurotoxic psychiatric drugs.

    Thank you, as always, Mr. Whitaker, for your truth telling.

  • Thank you, Jim, for this book review. I agree, with Fiachra, we need many books published on today’s psychological and psychiatric industries’ systemic crimes against humanity.

    Especially since they’re murdering “8 million” innocent people EVERY year worldwide, based upon their “invalid” DSM disorders, and their massive neurotoxic poisoning of innocent people.

    https://www.nimh.nih.gov/about/directors/thomas-insel/blog/2015/mortality-and-mental-disorders.shtml
    https://www.nimh.nih.gov/about/directors/thomas-insel/blog/2013/transforming-diagnosis.shtml

    And it’s really hard to find truthful information about our current, so called, “pandemic,” on the internet today. Since all who question whether or not it is a real pandemic, or who report truthful information about it, have been censored from the internet. So I do not really know how many are actually dying from Covid-19 EVERY year, but it seems to be much lower than the “8 million,” the psychiatric industry, et al are murdering, annually.

    But I do know, “schizophrenia” has historically been the tool used by criminal governments, and the globalist banksters, who control them, to destroy “political dissidents,” historically. And the scientific validity of that diagnosis, was confessed to be “invalid,” eight years ago, by the head of the US NIMH.

    In part because it has been pointed out online, that the “schizophrenia” treatments, can create both the positive symptoms of “schizophrenia,” via anticholinergic toxidrome. And the “schizophrenia treatments” 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

    And, Robert Whitaker did a great job in pointing out that the ADHD drugs and antidepressants can both create the “bipolar” symptoms.”

    https://www.alternet.org/2010/04/are_prozac_and_other_psychiatric_drugs_causing_the_astonishing_rise_of_mental_illness_in_america/

    Which means that the two “most serious DSM ‘mental illnesses'” are, in fact, iatrogenic illnesses, created with the psychiatric drugs. Which means that the psychiatric and psychological industries’ control of America, or any country, on this planet, should be ended.

    Thank you so much for this book review, and all you do, Jim. Since it’s so very important for the truth to be exposed.

  • “The researchers hoped to avoid validity problems of bias or recall failure that arise from reliance on self-reporting (as in the ACEs study). Instead, they measured exposure to child maltreatment by contact with child protection service, reasoning that in a jurisdiction with wide-spread mandatory reporting requirements, ‘serious maltreatment is unlikely to go unreported.'”

    At least in the US, also a place where “mandatory reporting requirements” supposedly exist, yours is a completely false assumption. To the contrary, it is the CPS and foster care systems, in the US, that are functioning as “pipelines” for “child sex trafficking and pedophilia.”

    https://community.healthimpactnews.com/topic/4576/america-1-in-child-sex-trafficking-and-pedophilia-cps-and-foster-care-are-the-pipelines

    And I can tell you, as a mother who was eventually handed over medical evidence of the abuse of my child. That when I reported such a child abuse crime to pastors, CPS, the police, teachers, the FBI, the States Attorney’s office, the psychiatrists, etc. – no one did anything, but deny. Well, the psychiatrist wanted to neurotoxic poison my healing child. And one police officer told me to “talk to a psychiatrist.”

    But since I’d been attacked by child abuse covering up psychologists and psychiatrists, years prior to the medical evidence of the abuse of my child, being handed over. Well, I already knew my psychologists and psychiatrists were child abuse cover uppers, NOT people who helped child abuse survivors, nor their legitimately concerned parents.

    As a matter of fact, covering up child abuse and rape is the number one actual societal function of both the psychological and psychiatric industry, historically and today. To be specific, when “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).” Obviously, covering up child abuse is a systemic problem, within the “mental health” industries.

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

    And all this systemic misdiagnosis of child abuse survivors, by the “mental health workers,” is by DSM design. Since no “mental health” worker may ever bill any insurance company for ever helping any child abuse survivor, unless they first misdiagnose them with one of the billable DSM disorders.

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

    But all this helps to explain why, “persons with CPS contact ‘were more likely to die in circumstances involving poisonings, alcohol, drugs, other substances, or mental illness.'” CPS, and the “mental health” systems, are systemically harming child abuse survivors, instead of helping them.

    The ADHD drugs and antidepressants can create the “bipolar” symptoms.

    https://www.alternet.org/2010/04/are_prozac_and_other_psychiatric_drugs_causing_the_astonishing_rise_of_mental_illness_in_america/

    And the antipsychotics / neuroleptics can create the positive symptoms of “schizophrenia,” via anticholinergic toxidrome, as well as the negative symptoms, via NIDS.

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

    But the “mental health” industries’ systemic child abuse covering up – which also, of course, functions as a pedophile aiding, abetting, and empowerment – system is a multibillion dollar industry today. As is, apparently, the resulting child sex trafficking industry. Oops, the video about that is apparently being censured, according to the dead link above.

    And we all now live in a “pedophile empire,” largely thanks to CPS, the foster care, “mental health,” and social worker industries’ systemic “conspiracy” to aid, abet, and empower pedophiles. While they are also mass murdering millions of innocent, misdiagnosed, child abuse survivors, with the psychiatric neurotoxins, and their scientifically “invalid” DSM disorders … murdering millions EVERY year, that is.

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

    https://www.nimh.nih.gov/about/directors/thomas-insel/blog/2013/transforming-diagnosis.shtml

    And we ought not forget, this is also big bucks for the religions, and the religious hospitals, that profit from all this systemic psychiatric, psychological, et al iatrogenic harm of child abuse survivors. Religions who have “partnered with the mental health professionals,” like my former religion did. Which has turned my former religion’s bishops into systemic child abuse cover uppers, too.

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

    An ethical pastor of a different religion was kind and honest enough to confess to me that this systemic psychiatric / psychological et al harm of child abuse survivors, is known as “the dirty little secret of the two original educated professions.”

    I do so hope the doctors, pastors, bishops, and government social workers will some day get out of the systemic child abuse covering up, pedophile empowerment, business. Since their “dirty little secret,” systemic child abuse covering up crimes, are destroying our country, from within.

  • “Other contributing factors to nocebo more broadly are patients with a history of anxiety and/or depression… ” who had the common adverse and withdrawal effects of the drug classes, used to “treat” those symptoms, misdiagnosed by doctors and psychiatrists. Thus those wisdom inspired patients have lost trust in the medical community.

    Especially since, when we medically explain to a pediatrician, that the ADHD drugs and antidepressants can create the symptoms of “bipolar.” So they should stop misdiagnosing so many children as “bipolar.”

    https://www.alternet.org/2010/04/are_prozac_and_other_psychiatric_drugs_causing_the_astonishing_rise_of_mental_illness_in_america/

    And we point out that the antipsychotics / neuroleptics, that are then given to these million plus “bipolar” misdiagnosed children, can create both the negative and positive symptoms of “schizophrenia.” Via both neuroleptic induced deficit syndrome and anticholinergic toxidrome.

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

    The pediatrician then says, “I can’t stop misdiagnosing the children with the DSM disorders,” and mis – medicating them, because “it’s too profitable.” How are we supposed to regain trust in such a greed only inspired, criminal medical industry? When they don’t actually deserve trust.

  • “I have thought about the hours of clinical team meetings in which I have participated over the years.”

    No doubt, these conversations, which were actually called “conspiracies” in my medical records, by the very psychologist and psychiatrist participating in their “conspiracy” against me and my family.

    Which resulted in the staggeringly deluded psychiatrist, eventually declaring my entire life to be a “credible fictional story,” since he’d gotten all his misinformation about me, from “clinical team meetings,” rather than listening to – and because he had “not believed by doctor” – me.

    “It was a fascinating discussion during which their respect for one another – regardless of rank or education – was apparent. That could not have happened with a psychiatrist who insisted on the type of hierarchical structure that remains common in most hospitals.”

    I agree, this is a big part of the problem with America’s so called “mental health” system, not to mention the total scientific “invalidity” of the entire “mental health” system.

    https://www.nimh.nih.gov/about/directors/thomas-insel/blog/2013/transforming-diagnosis.shtml

    But I will say, the pathological lying – systemic child abuse covering up – psychological industry can be equally as problematic. As is the, too stupid to know anything about the common adverse and withdrawal effects of the drugs they prescribe – systemic child abuse covering up – psychiatric industry.

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

    I, too, send my condolences to Birgitta Alakare’s family, and loved ones. No doubt what she did was infinitely wiser than what is happening within the so called “mental health” system of America, in general.

    And I am glad you were able to learn some from her, Sandra.

  • “According to Harrow et al., antipsychotic-induced dopamine super-sensitivity psychosis may play a role.” I agree, withdrawal from the antipsychotics can result in a drug withdrawal induced super sensitivity manic “psychosis.” Or for me, what was personally, more like an awakening to my subconscious / dreams. Which was not too bothersome to me, personally, thankfully.

    Hi, incontinentia buttucks, lovely name (sarcasm). “Any ‘healthy person’ put on [the antipsychotics] will experience ‘negative symptoms.'” I think it depends on the dose, since I suffered from anticholinergic toxidrome – which mimics the positive symptoms of “schizophrenia,” “bipolar” and “depression with psychotic symptoms.” Except one is made hyperactive, instead of inactive, other than to sleep way too much.

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

    When a healthy person is put on way more than the recommended dosage of multiple antipsychotics at once, to cover up the common symptoms of antidepressant discontinuation syndrome, and other easily recognized malpractice, and/or medical evidence of the sexual assault of their small child, as I was. My experience was I was made “psychotic” with the antipsychotics, via anticholinergic toxidrome.

    Thus I was made “hyperactive,” not “inactive.” So my work and medical research is now way “too truthful” for the systemic child abuse covering up psychologists and psychiatrists I worked with, who want to “maintain the status quo.”

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

    Thanks, as always, Peter, for the honest reporting on the neurotoxic psych drugs.

  • I agree, love is the answer, and fear is the opposite of love. But fear is what our mainstream media is propagating. However, I turned off the mainstream media, shortly after 9/11/2001, since I didn’t want to be brainwashed and fear mongered by a TV decades ago. I hope others will understand the importance doing of such, soon. And start doing their own research.

  • Thank you, Jennifer, for pointing out the importance of respecting the experts by experience. And the need to incorporate their many decades of unpaid research and help of innocent survivors, of the corrupt medical / pharmaceutical industrial complex, into the medical literature.

    And the fact that the “’Drug makers had little incentive to mount costly studies of how best to quit their products, and federal funding has not filled the research gap.’ The result is a vacuum of research.”

    Which is the evidence of what I learned the hard way, and now have lots of medical proof – that the so called “experts” / psychiatrists / psychologists, know next to nothing about the common adverse effects of their drugs, nor how to properly withdrawal people from their drugs.

  • It’s sick and disgusting that the psychiatric industry systemically denes knowledge of akathisia, when they’ve know about akathisia for decades.

    But, then again, the psychiatrists were all taught in med school that both the antidepressants and antipsychotics / neuroleptics can create “psychosis,” via anticholinergic toxidrome.

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

    Yet America has over a million children – and God knows how many adults – who’ve had the common adverse effects of the ADHD and antidepressant drug classes, misdiagnosed as “bipolar.”

    https://www.alternet.org/2010/04/are_prozac_and_other_psychiatric_drugs_causing_the_astonishing_rise_of_mental_illness_in_america/

    Here’s proof that none of the “mental health” industry knew that “brain zaps” were a common symptom of antidepressant discontinuation syndrome, until 2005. Although, this particular rendition of the original article was published in 2018, likely because the original 2005 article was censored, but that only makes the misinformed “mental health” system look even dumber.

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

    But the psychiatrists’, and their – non-medically trained, and medically trained – DSM “bible” deluded “mental health” and mainstream medical workers’ claim. That all ADHD and antidepressant “bipolar” misdiagnosed people, need to be put on drug cocktails that include combining both the antidepressants and antipsychotics, is an insane theology.

    https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/bipolar-disorder/diagnosis-treatment/drc-20355961

    We are literally living through the worst psychiatric holocaust in history. According to the former head of the NIMH, there are “8 million” dying from the “invalid” DSM disorders, EVERY year.

    https://www.nimh.nih.gov/about/directors/thomas-insel/blog/2015/mortality-and-mental-disorders.shtml
    https://www.nimh.nih.gov/about/directors/thomas-insel/blog/2013/transforming-diagnosis.shtml

    But this is really also just a way of our so called NIMH leaders claiming to confess to the truth, but NOT actually confessing and repenting, and ending all their harm to these millions, who are dying from the neurotoxic psychiatric drugs, that are being forced upon people, by the DSM deluded “mental health system.”

    Most of whom, are NOT medically trained, so know nothing about the common adverse effects of the drugs they’re forcing and coercing onto to non-criminal, innocent, people – largely, due merely to legitimate distress. Most of whom are actually child abuse survivors.

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

    Too many of the “mental health” workers can’t seem to confess that they are actually systemic child abuse covering up groups of industries, by DSM design, and largely for their religions. But some do speak the truth, to some extent, thankfully.

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

    But I know from personal experience, an ethical pastor’s confession, and much research, that the “mental health system,” is a systemic problem, known as “the dirty little secret of the two original educated professions.” A little about my former religion’s, systemic, child abuse covering up crimes.

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

    And our society does need an end to “the dirty little secret of the two original educated professions,” multibillion dollar, systemic child abuse covering up system. Especially since we’re all now living in a “pedophile empire,” where pedophilia and child sex trafficking crimes are running amok.

    https://www.amazon.com/Pedophilia-Empire-Americas-Shameful-Scandals/dp/B08SB7BD23
    https://community.healthimpactnews.com/topic/4576/america-1-in-child-sex-trafficking-and-pedophilia-cps-and-foster-care-are-the-pipelines

    Is that actually what the “mental health” industry’ wanted? .

  • I totally agree, “Billing Psychiatric Patients for Involuntary Treatment is Unethical.”

    “the high cost of inpatient stays that averaged just over $7,000 for about a week of treatment.” I was involuntary treated twice. The first time was for two weeks, at a cost to my private insurance company of $30,000. I was held by this now FBI convicted criminal doctor, and his psycho psychiatric “snowing” partner in crime, for a non-existent “chronic airway obstruction,” which is NOT even a “mental illness.” Thus, it was, in fact, an illegal forced psychiatric treatment.

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

    “Psychiatric patients’ vulnerability, combined with the coercive nature of involuntary care, could also foster outright exploitation.”

    Indeed, it does. The second time I was forced treated was due to the fact, I eventually learned from health insurance companies, that that psycho psychiatrist had been erroneously and illegally listing me as her “out patient,” at a hospital I’d never been to, for years.

    I was able to get the hospital that had given me an unwanted $5000 physical, resulting in a “medically clear” diagnosis – because I had been lying in a public park, looking at the clouds, trying to mentally come to grips with the staggering in scope medical betrayal I’d dealt with, after finding the medical proof that the antidepressants and antipsychotics can create psychosis, via anticholinergic toxidrome – to drop the charges. Since I had politely refused medical care, and NOT signed HIPPA forms. Yet I was inexplicably, in the middle of the night, shipped – a long distance – back to that very same psycho psychiatrist. Obviously, that hospital had illegally broken the HIPPA laws.

    I didn’t have insurance at the time, so I don’t know what the state was charged for that psycho psychiatrist’s second, medically unneeded, and illegal, forced “treatment,” this time for a non-existent “UTI,” but this is also NOT a “mental illness.”

    Definitely stealing from, bankrupting, and defaming – in every way possible – is the goal of the child abuse covering up psychiatric and psychological industries.

  • I do understand many of the justifiably frustrated commenters’ comments, as one who was also “butchered” by incompetent “healthcare” workers. But I also appreciated the amazing amount of truth spoken in this blog post, Robert.

    I may have to pick up your book, and thank you very much, for trying to wake society up to the fraud, and truly horrifying, systemic, crimes of psychiatry. But you should get Joanna Moncrieff’s name correct, and hopefully, I spelled it correctly.

  • “To me, in modern times, art’s most important role is this: to help lift the forces of psychological oppression from one’s heart and mind.”

    I agree. But, artists should be forewarned, since we may be systemically targeted and attacked by “mental health” workers, as I was.

    “Through art-making, I could let my mind exist as it was and honor it without the label of disease. I pressed my art and writing into the world, put aside what I was told was “crazy”, and instead saw my imagination, my trauma, my grief, and my creativity as something profoundly beautiful, and even more importantly, something worthy of having a voice. Art was my path to empowerment.”

    “A picture paints a thousand words.” I was attacked as a young artist, just starting out working on my portfolio. Now my art is so “too truthful,” and “maybe the world is ready for a ‘Chicago Chagall’,” that a second ELCA psychologist – who actually looked at my work – attempted to steal all profits from my work, my story, and his hope was to eventually steal all my money and work, according to the “art manager” contract he handed me. Of course, I said go away. Although, I’ve run into many “mental health” workers who don’t seem capable of understanding English, let alone the concept of ‘live and let live.’

    “Artists can serve as society’s radical conscience, holding up a mirror in which we as a people can see ourselves and question our collective choices.”

    And, hopefully, our work will function as a truthful recording of history. But in this time of ‘universal deceit,’ most definitely, my work is considered ‘radical.’ Especially to those psychologists who want to “maintain the status quo,” and “get all the money in the hands of a small number of banking families.”

    “Art is also love, a kind of gift.” Absolutely.

    “It is this self-love that is the core of my creating.”

    Yes, psychiatry’s and psychology’s incessant desire to defame, neurotoxic poison, steal from, and to try to control artists, is about hate, or jealousy, or greed, or some other negative human trait. And my work is about a love of God, others, truth, and of self. So I cannot allow my art to be controlled – whatsoever – by the exceedingly negative, DSM deluded, people.

    “To me, the power of art to transform our lives is undeniable. To me, art is a societal force that moves us forward, just as important as technology and science.”

    I agree, and hope you are right. I know, once I’d explained one of my recent pieces of art to someone, it made him actually cry. Ironically, the piece is called ‘Tears of Both Joy and Sorrow.’ Art should describe the human experience, which – obviously to all, except certain “mental health” workers – includes tears of both joy and sorrow. They believe all who have either tears of joy or sorrow are “bipolar.”

    “The key is in the doing, the act of making. When you embrace the possibilities of your imagination, when you free yourself to express without censorship, without self-judgment or the judgment of others, you nurture the ground of emotional healing.”

    Yes, and it is the “too truthful” artwork of us honest artists, of which the “mental health” system are most afraid. And a “bad guy, dah” / psychologist, within a mainstream religion, wanted to “manage” / control. Psychologists should stop attempting to “manage” and/or control the artists.

    I’ve been working on a lot of family business this year, we got a lot accomplished, thankfully. But I did not get a lot of artwork done this year, unfortunately. Plus, I’m still trying to catch up on the telling of my story, with my artwork. I’m working on a couple pieces right now about a day in 2009 (during my last drug withdrawal induced ‘super sensitivity manic’ healing period) – a pointillism Federal Reserve piece, and a Chagall inspired Michigan Avenue bridge piece. Long story.

    I do plan to do a pointillism ‘Corona World’ piece soon. But each pointillism piece takes a LOT of time. But they are pretty cool, once they’re done. And, since the artists are forced to research medicine, to find the medical proof of how the psychological and psychiatric systems made us sick.

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

    And since too many of the mainstream doctors aren’t being honest with their patients, due to their greed. That does leave us artists playing catch up, in regards to our own work. Not to mention, I can’t afford to get my work properly photo documented every year.

    I wish I could submit something from this past year, but I likely can’t. And one piece I finished in 2020, which is really cool, is a documentation of history, not about the Corona virus insanity. Nor “prophetic,” as that psychologist, who wanted to take control of all my work, believed my work to be. Maybe I can get that “Tears of Both Joy and Sadness” piece photo documented, and submit it? Oops, no, I signed it this year, with a guesstimated 2019 completion date.

    I’m pretty certain we, societally, have a problem with the “awakened” / “canary in the coal mine” artists vs. the pharmaceutical industry deluded “mental health” industry, who can’t stand to be awakened to their systemic crimes against humanity.

    But since they’re killing “8 million” innocent people every year, I do so hope the “mental health” industry will wake up soon. And I do have another recently finished, Chagall inspired, piece about the need for society to Wake Up, that I call “Cock-a-Doodle-Do.”

    https://www.nimh.nih.gov/about/directors/thomas-insel/blog/2015/mortality-and-mental-disorders.shtml

    I understand confessing to the “mental health” industry’s systemic murders of millions every year, would be difficult to do, but they should. Since they’re also raping our entire economy for their malpractice insurance, but not utilizing it for what it is intended.

    Perhaps, only including the systemic Corona virus 2020 crimes against humanity by doctors, in an art show by MiA, is a tad too limited?

  • “In this melting away of the old paradigm, we must be careful, as many people can be harmed in the confused no-man’s land between the death of one paradigm and the emergence of a coherent other. We have to guard against a further neoliberal takeover that simply enables a different form of commercialised, McDonaldised, profit-making vehicle to emerge. We would have to guard against the political classes finding new ways to co-opt medical and allied professions into policing the population.”

    Yes, those DSM deluded neoliberal pastors and “mental health” “allied professions” – or in their words, “delusional religious conspiracists” – do try to find “new ways” to attempt to murder and steal from the decent – non-bailout needing or taking – American banking families. Who may know more about the criminal globalist banksters’, and their political puppets’ crimes. Plus the impropriety of their never ending wars, than those real life, systemic, medical/religious “conspiracists.”

    “Humanising the paradigm should open us all to the ordinary and understandable nature of diverse behaviours and experiences, including distressing and unwanted ones.” Or even the exemplary behaviors, like running an art program for underprivileged children. But that exemplary artist, may have artwork which “too truthfully” historically records the unacceptable behavior of the modern day, attempting murdering and thieving, “mental health” workers’ – the “neoliberal takeover that simply [wants to enable] a different form of commercialised, McDonaldised, profit-making vehicle to emerge.” Or to “maintain the status quo” and “get all the money in the hands of a small number of banking families,” as a Lutheran psychologist rationalized his attempted thievery to me, were his goals.

    And now those neoliberals, have taken all conservative Christian creators’ work, off the internet. It’s called censorship, and it’s illegal in America. The “neoliberals” seem to be anti-American, criminal, commies, hellbent on destroying America from within.

    Just like they destroyed Russia, in Bolshevik led Russia, and Germany, with the Nazis. Those “neoliberals” are repeating the worst of history. But, of course, it does all come down to covering up the fraud of the central banking system. Since “All wars are bankers’ wars,” after all.

  • I have better solutions, end all forced psychiatric “incarceration.” End the ‘war on drugs,’ since most people who are incarcerated, are there for minor drug offenses. And let’s get the iatrogenic illness creating ‘mental health’ system away from our children, especially children who’ve suffered from ACEs. Since NO ‘mental health’ worker may EVER bill ANY insurance company for EVER helping any child abuse survivor, unless they first MISDIAGNOSE them, with one of their “invalid” DSM disorders.

  • Yes, we need the US to return to the rule of the law of the land, common law. I’m pretty certain I now understand the medical industries systemic crimes. As a banker’s daughter, it didn’t take me too long to understand the banker’s systemic crimes. But I’m still working to understand the legal industries’ systemic crimes against the American people.

    https://www.bitchute.com/video/UBfZiFDxKtom/

    What do you think, or know, about this? And, yes, it needs to be about bringing about “justice for all.” Since that’s what America is supposed to actually be about.

  • I must agree, this reads a bit like a psychology student grasping at straws to me. Since his industry, and their DSM “bible,” were debunked as “invalid” and “bullshit” – by the leaders in their industry – eight years ago, now.

    https://www.nimh.nih.gov/about/directors/thomas-insel/blog/2013/transforming-diagnosis.shtml

    I wanted to link to the original Allen Frances Wired article, but apparently it’s been taken off the internet. Censorship sucks, and is illegal in the US, for good reason.

    https://reason.com/2011/01/06/there-is-no-definition-of-a-me/

    And I will say the elder psychologists I dealt with have turned themselves into delusions of grandeur filled lunatics. Who worked hard to attempt to steal from, and get the ethical artists and widows like me out of their churches. Because my artwork “too truthfully” depicts the systemic child abuse covering up crimes of psychologists and psychiatrists, for their pastors and bishops.

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

    I’m not certain how long it will take for the psychological and psychiatric industries to garner insight into the reality that covering up child abuse is illegal in America, for good reason.

    But we all are now living in a “pedophile empire,” with child sex trafficking and pedophilia running amok, largely thanks to our criminal, systemic child abuse covering up, psychological and psychiatric system.

    https://community.healthimpactnews.com/topic/4576/america-1-in-child-sex-trafficking-and-pedophilia-cps-and-foster-care-are-the-pipelines

    And all this “mental health” industry, systemic child abuse covering up is 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

    I hope you choose a different path, or to take your industry, in a completely different direction, Micah.

  • “But appropriate treatment might prevent this cycle of recidivism.”

    The problem is that the psychiatrists don’t have “appropriate treatments.” Their antidepressants and ADHD drugs can create the “bipolar” symptoms, as Robert Whitaker pointed out in “Anatomy of an Epidemic.” Their antidepressants and antipsychotics / neuroleptics can create “psychosis,” via anticholinergic toxidrome. And the 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

    Plus, those forced treatment laws are being abused by criminal doctors, like this now FBI convicted doctor:

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

    Who was having lots of patients medically unnecessarily shipped long distances to himself, admitting them with non-existent “chronic airway obstructions.” Then he had his psychiatric “snowing” partner-in-crime, massively neurotoxic poison the non-violent and innocent people, in the hopes of making them unable to breathe, so he could have unneeded tracheotomies done of people, for profit.

  • No offense, but psychology historically – and psychiatry – have been, and still are, a systemic, paternalistic, child abuse and rape covering up, group of industries, largely for the mainstream religions.

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

    You ladies need to garner insight into this reality. It’s called the “dirty little secret of the two original educated professions,” by the ethical pastors.

    And all this systemic child abuse covering up, by the psychological and psychiatric industries, is 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

    I hope, some day, you DSM deluded, systemic child rape covering up, “mental health” system will, some day, get out of that illegal business. Which our government, et al, are not arresting and convicting you for committing.

    Let’s hope God is in charge of judging all fairly, not you unrepentant DSM deluded “mental health” workers, nor our government.

  • One of the main problems with the “mental health” industries, and the mainstream media – and our society, in general – is their belief there are only two choices. “Nature vs. nurture,” “Republican vs. Democrat,” etc.

    I’m an independent, politically technically, and we too exist. Contrary to the beliefs of the psychiatrists, one of whom ignorantly literally declared the entirety of my life to be a “credible fictional story,” prior to my leaving that staggeringly deluded psychiatrist.

    And for the “mental health” workers, who fight about “nature vs. nurture,” is it’s actually about both. And that comes from a mother who has both a father and son who graduated from university Phi Beta Kappa (in the top one percent in intellect in America).

    Who gives great thanks to God for great “genetics,” since I also have a former Olympic athlete, and backup Olympic athlete, in my immediate family. And since I’ve already survived 14 anticholinergic toxidrome attempted murders at my life, by corrupt – and one now FBI convicted – systemic child abuse covering up “mental health” and medical lunatics, according to my child’s and my medical records.

    And I have found the medical proof, that the antipsychotics / neuroleptics can create both the negative and positive symptoms of ‘schizophrenia,’ via both neuroleptic induced deficit syndrome, and anticholinergic toxidrome.

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

    And Robert Whitaker, thankfully, pointed out in his book “Anatomy of an Epidemic,” that the ADHD drugs and antidepressants can create the common symptoms of “bipolar.”

    https://www.alternet.org/2010/04/are_prozac_and_other_psychiatric_drugs_causing_the_astonishing_rise_of_mental_illness_in_america/

    The bottom line is we need to get to the point the “mental health” industries understand they were misinformed by the universities that mis-educated them, and the pharmaceutical industries. Thus they’re systemically harming their clients.

    And they need to stop doing this. And utilize their malpractice insurance, to pay for their systemic crimes against their patients, since they’re raping our entire society, so they may do this. For God’s sake, the “mental health professions” are killing “8 million” innocent people every year.

    https://www.nimh.nih.gov/about/directors/thomas-insel/blog/2015/mortality-and-mental-disorders.shtml

    This mass murder of innocent, non-criminal, people – by the mis-educated “mental health professions” – needs to end. But I do agree, “Genes matter. They matter for us as individuals and they matter for us as a society. And they matter whether progressive people believe them to matter or not.”

    And I personally do not believe either the current political left, nor right, in the US government – nor their “mental health” industries – are 100% correct.

    I agree, however that, “What the political left must understand is that sticking our heads in the sand and ignoring the rapidly developing world of human genetic research does no one any favors.” Truth is what matters, instead.

  • “In the end, it should be left to the individual to weigh the benefits and the risks, and to give informed consent for vaccination.” The same should be true for all drugs, including the psychiatric drugs.

    “he suggests that mandatory or involuntary vaccination may only increase people’s fear and reluctance to receive medical care.” Indeed, it does.

    And I will say that since the vaccine was rushed through, without trials, the doctors can’t actually give informed consent. Since they have no information on the safety or efficacy of the vaccine.

  • Thank you for sharing this history, Joshua.

    I’ve been attacked by two ELCA Lutheran psychologists. The first time, according to her medical records, was because the psychologist wanted to cover up the abuse of my child, for her pastor and his pedophile friend, prior to my mentally coming to grips with the fact that my child had been sexually assaulted. Once my family’s medical records were finally handed over, by decent and disgusted nurses in my PCP’s office, and I had to come to grips with the reality that my 3 year old child had been sexually assaulted.

    I did tell my psychiatrist about the medical evidence of the abuse, and he wanted to drug my child, four years after the abuse. I said no, then he tried to convince my husband that I needed to be re-neurotoxic poisoned. I had to leave that sick psychiatrist. I was able to scare a private school, that had that pedophile on it’s school board, into closing forever (once the gossip about the medical evidence being handed over, got to them). But I was never able to find a cop who would do anything.

    Very literally, one cop actually told me to “go talk to a psychiatrist,” when I told him I had medical evidence of the abuse of my child handed over. CPS would do nothing. The States Attorney’s office would do nothing, the FBI, no one would do anything. And the bishops of my former religion are now systemic child abuse deniers, and profiteers, since they own many of the hospitals that are profiting from the psychiatric industry’s iatrogenesis.

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

    The second time I was attacked by a Lutheran psychologist was because I’d handed Whitaker’s book “Anatomy of an Epidemic” over to a Lutheran pastor, and wanted to see all that iatrogenic harm of a million children end. Oh, and my work was “too truthful.” Since it “too truthfully” documents psychiatry’s iatrogenic bipolar epidemic, and my escape from that BS.

    That ELCA psychologist handed over a conservatorship contract, under the guise of an “art manager” contract. A policeman told me he would file a police report, when I reported that psychologist’s attempted thievery. But I don’t think he did anything, other than perhaps to call the guy, and tell him to leave me alone.

    The psychological and psychiatric industries function as the child abuse covering up arm of many religions, according to an ethical pastor of a different religion. He called this medical/religious systemic “conspiracy,” “the dirty little secret of the two original educated professions.”

    “By the way, 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).”

    Thus, the vast majority of those labeled with the “serious mental illnesses” are child abuse survivors, not “dangerous criminals,” as the psychiatric and psychological industries propagate. And many thanks (sarcasm) to the “mental health” system et al, and their multibillion dollar pedophile empowerment industries, now that we all live in a “pedophile empire,” where child sex trafficking and pedophilia are running amok.

    https://www.amazon.com/Pedophilia-Empire-Americas-Shameful-Scandals/dp/B08SB7BD23
    https://community.healthimpactnews.com/topic/4576/america-1-in-child-sex-trafficking-and-pedophilia-cps-and-foster-care-are-the-pipelines

    And all this child abuse covering up is 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

    Oh, and by the way, my child still does not remember the abuse. But abused children can largely heal, if they are kept away from the child abuse covering up “mental health” and school social workers. Who wanted to get their grubby little hands on my child, because the child has largely healed from the abuse, and surprises his public school by going from remedial reading in first grade, to getting 100% on his state standardized tests in eighth grade.

  • It’s not my adage, it’s Upton Sinclair’s. An adage is a “general truth … that has gained credit through long use.” Please speak common sense and the truth! We need more of that, from everyone!

    But I will say, since autism is an “illness” created by the psychiatrists. Who claim ignorance of the fact that the ADHD drugs and antidepressants can create the “bipolar” symptoms.

    https://www.alternet.org/2010/04/are_prozac_and_other_psychiatric_drugs_causing_the_astonishing_rise_of_mental_illness_in_america/

    And their DSM “bible” is proof, they also claim ignorance of the fact that the antipsychotics / neuroleptics, the “gold standard schizophrenia treatments,” can create both the negative and positive symptoms of “schizophrenia,” via both NIDS and anticholinergic toxidrome.

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

    In other words, the large majority of psychiatrists consistently blame adverse drug effects on those they stigmatize. I will say, my research – and generally good gut instincts, including the fact I’d never heard of autism existing when I was young – lead me to believe autism may also likely be caused largely, by adverse effects of childhood vaccines, not just abusive parents.

    Another good adage you might like to use, with those with a “helpers complex,” is this one by C. S. Lewis:

    “Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.”

  • “Once an industrial complex (e.g., a set of circumstances around which institutional financial activities coalesce) is formed, there are sufficient incentives for the reproduction of that diagnosis irrespective of its utility for those diagnosed.”

    Well stated, and this is true for all the psychiatric DSM disorders. And why the DSM is still being utilized, despite being confessed to be scientifically “invalid,” eight years ago.

    https://www.nimh.nih.gov/about/directors/thomas-insel/blog/2013/transforming-diagnosis.shtml

    As the old adage goes, “It is difficult to get a man to understand something, when his salary depends on his not understanding it.” And it’s even worse, when dealing with completely deluded “industrial complexes,” like the “mental health” industrial complex.

  • “So WHO has the ‘mental illness’ here?”

    The doctors who have a “cloud of delusion and collusion that hangs over [their] otherwise brilliant minds.”

    Thank you for sharing this, Mr. Anthony. I agree, “the risks of these drugs outweigh their benefits.” And I hope and pray we can some how get the doctors and psychiatrists to end their mass psychiatric drugging of our children – and everyone, actually.

  • “It seems clear from all this that Dr. Pies’ priority in this matter is to remove from his reputation the stain left by his earlier attack on the credibility of his clients.” I’m pretty certain the goal of too many of the psychiatrists is to “attack the credibility” of their clients, since none of their DSM disorders, have any scientific “validity,” whatsoever.

    https://www.nimh.nih.gov/about/directors/thomas-insel/blog/2013/transforming-diagnosis.shtml

    “psychiatric clients are not credible unless their statements are confirmed by the psychiatrist.” Well, my entire life was declared “a credible fictional story,” by a psychiatrist who freely admitted within his medical records, “not believed by doctor,” and he got all his misinformation about me from child rape cover uppers and pedophiles, according to my family’s medical records, as well.

    “This is pure gaslighting,” yes, that is what the majority of the psychiatric and psychological industries are all about.

    “But credible – ie, worthy of belief or confidence – does not necessarily mean factually correct in all aspects and details. The same may be said, of course, of claims made by clinicians.”

    Since few of them seemingly know the ADHD drugs and antidepressants can create the “bipolar” symptoms. Thus over a million children have already had the common adverse, and withdrawal, symptoms of those drug classes misdiagnosed, as “bipolar.”

    https://www.alternet.org/2010/04/are_prozac_and_other_psychiatric_drugs_causing_the_astonishing_rise_of_mental_illness_in_america/

    And I found in my medical research, that the “schizophrenia” treatments, which will be given to most those misdiagnosed “bipolar” children. Can create both the positive and negative symptoms of “schizophrenia,” via anticholinergic toxidrome, and neuroleptic induced deficit disorder.

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

    “In one study of 262 undergraduate students taking a psychology course (France et al., 2007), nearly all (91.6%) participants were familiar with the chemical imbalance explanation, which was endorsed as a potential cause of depression by 84.7% of participants vs. 61.8% who endorsed the genetics/inherited belief.”

    Yet I know from dealing with “mental health” workers in real life, that they believe in both in the “genetics/inherited belief,” and when that doesn’t work, they espouse the “chemical imbalance” theory.

    “To summarize, although psychosocial explanations of depression are the most commonly endorsed, biogenetic explanations – especially the chemical imbalance explanation – have risen in recent years, especially in the United States.”

    America needs to make scientific fraud based pharmaceutical advertising illegal. We were told it was illegal, in our marketing schools, but our government made it legal.

    “Consistent with past findings, the most strongly endorsed belief was the ongoing stressor belief, followed by the chemical imbalance belief, genetic belief, and finally the childhood belief.”

    Which is highly hypocritical, given the reality that over 80% of those defamed with the DSM disorders are, in fact, child abuse survivors, NOT dangerous criminals. And the psychological industries have been systemic child abuse cover uppers, for over a century.

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

    “psychiatrists for about the past fifty years have been effectively encouraging clients to expect poor outcomes in the psychiatric ‘treatment’ of depression.”

    And they’re systemic crimes have come to fruition.

    “For now, the best explanation we have is that clinically significant depression is the outcome of biological, psychosocial, environmental, and even spiritual causes.3 The relative contribution of any single component almost certainly varies from patient to patient, and case to case. I believe that well-informed psychiatrists have known and embraced that holistic view for decades.”

    Not my psychologist and psychiatrists, they were all Holy Spirit blasphemers, according to my medical records.

    “Moreover…psychiatry as a profession and medical specialty never endorsed such a bogus ‘theory,’” yes they did. And many psychiatrists and psychologists chose to act like Holy Spirit blaspheming, unrepentant nut cases, while raping our entire economy for their malpractice insurance.

    Criminals, who, if there actually is a God, will likely be following Satan to the lake of fire. Since, they had “delusions of grandeur” they were the judges of all of humanity, rather than God.

    Thank you, as always, Philip, for speaking the truth. I’m so grateful some psychologists and psychiatrists are NOT on the side of Satan, and are speaking the truth. And seemingly understand they shouldn’t have been given the right to play judge, jury and executioner to anyone, by our governments.

    Especially since the psychiatric industry is murdering “8 million” people, EVERY year, with their “invalid” DSM disorders, and their neurotoxic psychiatric drugs.

    https://www.nimh.nih.gov/about/directors/thomas-insel/blog/2015/mortality-and-mental-disorders.shtml

    Thank God, for the decent psychologists, Philip.

  • I agree, kindredspirit.

    “We learned that Megan had endured childhood sexual abuse from her uncle and physical abuse from one of her brothers. Her father had a drinking problem, and her parents had severe marital difficulties.”

    “Like many patients with severe mental health problems, hospital was not a good fit for Megan, …”

    Megan didn’t have “severe mental health problems,” she was a child abuse survivor, who was justifiably distressed.

    And this is the problem with the entire DSM based “mental health” system. Both the psychiatric and psychological professions, and their DSM deluded minion, are child abuse cover uppers. Which is the same thing as being a pedophile aider, abetter, and empowerer.

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

    And since the DSM “bible” believers can’t bill to assist child abuse survivors, without misdiagnosing them with one of their billable DSM disorders, over 80% of the so called “mentally ill” are misdiagnosed child abuse survivors.

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

    Our country needs to start arresting the pedophiles, and the “mental health professionals” as a whole need to stop stigmatizing and neurotoxic poisoning child abuse survivors. And, just an FYI, Megan was likely given an antidepressant, which can create mania, or “mood swings.”

    But we may thank the “mental health professions,” now that we all live in a “pedophile empire,” where child sex trafficking and pedophilia are running amok.

  • “antidepressant prescription practices [are] based on flawed evidence regarding relative benefits and harms.”

    And a big part of the problem is the mainstream doctors and “mental health” workers claim ignorance of, or actually did not know anything about, the common adverse and withdrawal effects of their psych drugs. For example, they didn’t know that brain zaps, a common withdrawal effect of the antidepressants, was even such, until 2005.

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

    “In follow-up focus groups, participants highlighted the following key program ingredients: caring for the body via diet and lifestyle, attending to relationships with self and others, encouraging social connections and activities, validating lived experiences in a non-judgmental manner, and taking an overall holistic approach.” Yes, this would be an appropriate manner in which to treat other human beings.

    My psychiatrist tried to get me to stop exercising, and I was threatened and forced to take drugs that can cause extreme weight gain. My psychologist told me to “quit all your activities, and concentrate on the meds.” My medical records show that I was referred to by the DSM stigmatization that they gave me, rather than by my name. And a psychologist and psychiatrist, who had not looked at my work and did not know me, declared me to be “w/o work, content and talent” and “irrelevant to reality.” And my Lutheran psychologist called herself a “holistic, Christian talk therapist.”

    I’m pretty certain those “holistic” psychologists and psychiatrists are going to have to start doing things in 100% the opposite way, than they did it 20 years ago. The psychological and psychiatric professions, and all their “mental health” system, should also get out of the systemic child abuse covering up business.

    Which is all by DSM design.

    Thankfully, my wildly deluded psychiatrist – by that non-“holistic, Christian psychologist” – did finally bother to look at my work, concluded it was “work of smart female,” and “insightful.” So he did wean me off his anticholinergic toxidrome inducing drugs cocktails.

    But now my work is so “too truthful,” once the truth is attached to it, that another psychologist attempted to steal all profits from it, and all my money and artwork eventually, according to the BS “art manager” contract he handed me.

    Maybe people without medical degrees (only psychiatrists in the “mental health” industry, actually have them) should not be misdiagnosing people, with the scientifically “invalid” psychiatric / psychological DSM disorders? Or, better yet, maybe no one should.

    https://www.nimh.nih.gov/about/directors/thomas-insel/blog/2013/transforming-diagnosis.shtml

    And maybe psychiatrists should learn what the common adverse and withdrawal effects of their drugs actually are, prior to prescribing them? Or, at least, stop calling themselves “professionals,” until they do so.

    Especially since it was the scientific journalist, Robert Whitaker – not a “mental health professional” – who had to point out that the ADHD drugs and antidepressants, can both create the “bipolar” symptoms, and over a million American children have already been misdiagnosed.

    https://www.alternet.org/2010/04/are_prozac_and_other_psychiatric_drugs_causing_the_astonishing_rise_of_mental_illness_in_america/

    And you have a multiple Phi Beta Kappa family member, artist, who found the medical proof that all those misdiagnosed “bipolar” children, who will be given the “schizophrenia” drugs – the antipsychotics / neuroleptics – will likely be turned into “schizophrenics.”

    Since that drug class can create the positive symptoms of “schizophrenia,” via anticholinergic toxidrome. As well as 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

    Oops! So much for the scientific validity of the “sacred symbol of psychiatry.” I do so hope and pray, both the American psychological and psychiatric industries some day do garner insight into the importance of repenting, confessing, and making proper amends – since they’re raping our entire society for their malpractice insurance – for their, massive on a societal scale, malpractice.

  • Hey, I_e_Cox, does your religion’s anti-psychiatry museum buy “too truthful” artwork? I have one piece of art I did that visually describes all of the crimes my psychiatrists’ committed against me. But also all of psychiatry’s systemic crimes against humanity, in one piece of art.

    It’s title is “Psychiatry Turns Your Life into a Circus.” It’s inspired by a Chagall piece, and Chagall was a Jewish artist who survived the Nazi psychiatric holocaust of the Jews. I think it’s about 4’x30,” so it’s not really large. Might your religion’s anti-psychiatry museum consider purchasing such a piece of original art?

  • So true, our scientific fraud based “mental health” system needs to get the f-ck away from our children. I’m glad I was able to keep them away from mine. Despite repeated attacks, due to the fact they want to drug up the best and brightest American children, and I’d done lots of research.

    I’m very grateful I was able to keep the insane “mental health” workers away from my children, largely with common sense, logic, and a belief in the fact that both genetics and properly raising one’s children, have relevance into children’s development and behavior., Since a satanic, lying social worker couldn’t understand why an eighth grader might surprise his school district, by get 100% on his state standardized tests.

  • The problem is that it is our governments who have given the psychiatrists and psychologists the right to play judge, jury, and executioner to people they know nothing about, and it was our FDA who approved the neurotoxic psychiatric drugs in the first place.

    Which are killing “8 million” innocent people EVERY year. According to the ethical government officials, who are knowledgable about the systemic crimes being committed against humanity, by their own industry.

    https://www.nimh.nih.gov/about/directors/thomas-insel/blog/2015/mortality-and-mental-disorders.shtml

    Despite the fact all doctors – who our governments are now calling “heroes” – are all taught in med school, that both the antidepressants and antipsychotics can create “psychosis,” via anticholinergic toxidrome.

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

    And now that we have governments that are forcing people to wear masks/muzzles, locking all healthy people up in our homes, destroying the economy and all small businesses, and wanting to force vaccinate the world. Gosh, is it clear that we have the wrong people in charge yet?

    That’s why I was misdiagnosed, according to the DSM at the time, as “bipolar.” I knew 20 years ago, that the wrong people were in charge, right after 9.11.2001. But apparently the majority of our “mental health” workers’ goal, is bankrupting America, with never ending wars. And due to their own greed, and worship of the globalist banksters’ fraud based monetary system.

    But I’m quite certain I was correct, and the scientifically “invalid,” systemic child rape covering up, “mental health” lunatics, that I had the misfortune of dealing with, were wrong 20 years ago.

    Thank you for consistently speaking, and reporting on, the truth, Peter.

  • “By many measures, the United States is a failed state.” I agree, as a matter of fact, I was psychiatric neurotoxic poisoned almost 20 years ago, for knowing the wrong people were in charge of America, just after 9/11/2001. Everyone should know that the “mental health” workers are lunatics, who believe that distress caused by 9/11/2001, was distress caused by a “chemical imbalance” in my brain alone. WTF!

    And the “mental health” industries are a huge part of this destruction of America, but they are not a part of the solution. They are a multibillion dollar, primarily child abuse covering up, group of industries. Working for the religions and wealthy, while always begging for more money for themselves – while raping, defaming, and neurotoxic poisoning the decent people of America.

    “Mental Health Awareness,” more begging for money, by the “mental health” industries, will never be the solution. Taking power away from the scientifically “invalid,” primarily child abuse covering up, “mental health” industries – and the globalist, fiscally irresponsible, bailout needing, “trillions in homes” stealing banksters – who they work for, is the solution.

    The wrong people are still in charge of America, psych drugs don’t change that reality. But time – and free speech – does help the rest of humanity slowly garner insight and awareness into these societal problems. But, alas, all the “mental health professionals,” and the pharmaceutical controlled mainstream media, care about is covering up the truth.

  • “Regardless of predisposition, is addiction a chronic and progressive disease, marked by obsession and compulsion, which stems from changes to the brain?”

    Not likely.

    “If heroin, unlike alcohol, has perfect addictiveness, and addiction is chronic and progressive, then those who used the drug must become addicted, and stay addicted.”

    Not likely. I was unknowingly given a “dirty opioid,” in conjunction with a non-“safe smoking cessation med,” actual dangerous antidepressant. And since the two had major major drug interaction issues, I learned quite quickly NOT to regularly take the “safe pain killer”/ dirty opioid.

    “so we see that the chronic and progressive nature of addiction is a bit wobbly.”

    I’m quite certain it is.

    Our “preconception of addiction as a chronic and progressive compulsion and obsession with a substance just was not holding up to scrutiny.”

    In rats, who psychologists and psychiatrists tend to equate with other human beings. How ungodly disrespectful can they be?

    “The rats in rat park were give the same choice between water and the drug, but rarely chose the drug.”

    And that’s how I got my God damned psychiatrist to wean me off his drugs, by performing well with my fellow “peers,” or as the ungodly disrespectful researching psychiatrists’ claim, fellow “rats.”

    “The assumption is that drugs ‘hijack’ these areas of the brain, leading to addiction. These lower areas are basically the totality of brain power afforded to rats. But if rats aren’t always hijacked by drugs, and environment can play a role in addiction, then why should we believe that humans are hijacked by those same drugs?”

    Maybe the psychological and psychiatric researchers should garner some insight into the reality that other human beings are more intelligent than “rats.” Since I’ve been able to make fools out of both psychologists and psychiatrists, who didn’t believe a woman could do such to them. Although, I only did such, after they fuc-ked the living sh-t out of me and my family.

    I agree, “humans could become addicted to any intense experience. Relationships, sex, food, gambling, work, money, power. They are all addictive….” I also agree, “addiction is not always chronically and progressively compulsive and obsessive.”

    “So, what should [the “mental health professionals”] do with the new information contradicting these theories? If they are all wrong, or incomplete at best, we would have to adapt, right?….Right?”

    Yes, correct.

  • Yes, the “mental health professions,” and some mainstream criminal (now FBI convicted) doctors, HATE all those who don’t need or want their “help.” So much so, that they force treated us.

    And now the entire country is looking at forced vaccinations, and at least half the country is not pleased. Gosh, what’s confusing about forced medical treatment, of any kind, should be illegal?

    Absolutely no products or services should be forced upon anyone. If something must be forced upon people, obviously that product or service isn’t good enough to make it in a free market society, which our country used to be.

  • “psychiatry ought to play a more constructive role in our future society,” and unfortunately psychiatry chose to play a more destructive role in our society. Given the fact they’re killing “8 million” every year.

    https://www.nimh.nih.gov/about/directors/thomas-insel/blog/2015/mortality-and-mental-disorders.shtml

    And they’ve already misdiagnosed the common adverse and withdrawal symptoms of the ADHD drugs and antidepressants as “bipolar” in millions of people, including over a million children.

    https://www.alternet.org/2010/04/are_prozac_and_other_psychiatric_drugs_causing_the_astonishing_rise_of_mental_illness_in_america/

    And all those misdiagnosed “bipolar” stigmatized people are then given the “schizophrenia” drugs, the antipsychotics/neuroleptics. Which can create the positive symptoms of “schizophrenia,” via anticholinergic toxidrome, as well as 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

    Oh, but none of the psychiatrists or other “mental health” workers know this, because those medically known ways of poisoning people are, conveniently for the psychiatrists, missing from their scientifically “invalid” DSM “bible.”

    https://www.nimh.nih.gov/about/directors/thomas-insel/blog/2013/transforming-diagnosis.shtml

    “There’s a real connection institutionally between the counter-culture, anti-war, civil rights activism, and psychiatric survivor movement activism.” Yet people like me dealt with “political abuse of psychiatry,” since I was distressed by 9/11/2001, like the majority of the rest of the world, but was neurotoxic poisoned for knowing the wrong people were in charge of America, back then. By psychologists and psychiatrists, who were apparently NOT so “insightful.”

    “They said that psychiatrists and psychologists shouldn’t just say cannabis will make you go bonkers. If you smoke a joint, you’re not going to become a murderer.” My neighbor was a “mental health” worker, and said he quit smoking pot because he saw tons of people misdiagnosed as “mentally ill” by psychiatrists, for smoking pot. Me, I was inappropriately given an antidepressant by a PCP, under the guise of a “safe smoking cessation med,” for the legal activity of smoking cigarettes, and agreeing, yes I should try to quit.

    “Other white settler-colonists might say we want to use this plant and its derivatives for purely medical purposes and divorce it from these religious uses.” Yes, as one who was neurotoxic poisoned for belief in God, by psychiatrists and psychologists, according to their medical records. I will say, there is a big problem with the “mental health” system wanting to “divorce” people from God, which of course is illegal in the US, as a country that supposedly has “freedom of religion.”

    “A lot of people felt that the mental health establishment was a means to control women.” No doubt, it still is. A now FBI arrested doctor, and his psychiatric “snowing” partner in crime, aided and abetted my husband in stealing all from me, but my inheritance. And another psychologist recently attempted to steal that, plus all profits from my work, and my work.

    All because I’m a woman who stands against child abuse. God forbid a woman stand against men and women raping and neurotoxic poisoning children. That’s not allowed, according to an ELCA psychologist. Who I had to say NO, I will not hire you to “manage” my money into your pockets, about 40 times.

    “Psychology should own its past for all its strengths and weaknesses, be ready to collaborate, and try to work as much as they possibly can with different populations while being as frank as possible.” I agree. A little about their, and the DSM deluded psychiatric industry’s, real history.

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

    Unfortunately, the psychological industry is doing the opposite of what they should be doing – just telling lies, lies, and attempting more psy-ops – due their desire to “maintain the status quo.” But then again, I have no doubt it is embarrassing to have to confess that your industry is a systemic, child abuse covering up industry, according the the medical evidence, and due to your “invalid” DSM “bible’s” design.

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

    Thank you for the interview, very interesting, gentlemen. “Trust isn’t earned overnight.” And real repentance, utilizing one’s malpractice insurance for what it is intended, and systemic change really does need to happen, for trust in the psychological and psychiatric industries to be earned back now, IMHO.

  • A similar experience with the adverse effects of the psych drugs, is what prompted my research into them as well, Fiachra. And I can’t agree more, Sam, “That is a terrible thing to do to people and their families.” The “8 million” people psychiatry is killing EVERY year, is absolutely disgusting, unacceptable, and needs to end.

    https://www.nimh.nih.gov/about/directors/thomas-insel/blog/2015/mortality-and-mental-disorders.shtml

  • “Cultural realities take a backseat in the psychological understandings of people and are rarely considered central to the human experience.” Which is a real problem, since in America, we’re in the midst of a “culture war.”

    And the DSM deluded psychological and psychiatric professions are hell bent on destroying Western civilization. To cover up the reality that, likely the majority of them, are nothing but child abuse cover uppers, for the religions, and the wealthy “cocaine dealers,” who walk through the doors of those churches.

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

    “exporting psychiatric treatments leads to harm in indigenous communities, as they either already have or are trying to develop their own systemic ways of dealing with human distress.”

    This comment implies the American (and Indian) psychologists still don’t know that the “psychiatric treatments” cause harm to Western people, thus they should NOT be exported worldwide.

    The ADHD drugs and antidepressants can create the “bipolar” symptoms. And the antipsychotics/neuroleptics can create the positive symptoms of “schizophrenia,” via anticholinergic toxidrome; as well as the negative symptoms of “schizophrenia,” via neuroleptic induced deficit syndrome.

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

    I don’t know how many times I must mention this, on this website alone, prior to the psychologists garnering insight into this reality. The psych drugs are “neurotoxins.”

    “As opposed to this, Westerners focused solely on the central figure’s emotional state to rate his intensity of emotion.”

    I think this is likely a problem, more so for the systemic child abuse covering up, justifiably guilt ridden psychological industry than for the rest of Western society.

    “repeated demands of the job can even change the brain structure.”

    Of course one’s brain adjusts to their job, or whatever they’re researching. When I was a kitchen/bath designer, I was dreaming in numbers and designs, since I was constantly calculating tile quantities needed. Once the banksters’ destroyed my industry, and I concentrated more on psychopharmacological research.

    It was harder for me to estimate the size of a store, in a NY second, which prevented me from getting a job. But I’m sure I wouldn’t have wanted to work for that a–hole anyway. By the way, I got in the top 99.95% of my math SATs, so it’s not likely he hired a more mathematically inclined person than me.

    “In a study, Chinese participants considered past events as closer to the present, more relevant to current problem solving, and remembered them better than North Americans. This is due to the East Asian cyclical understanding of time as compared to the Western concept of time as linear.”

    I doubt that is really the truth. I think it’s more about the fact that North American history classes have been about forcing children to memorize dates for history tests. Rather than actually educating North American children about the truth behind our history, and allowing them to learn and garner insight from our real history.

    Like, for example, that the psychologists’ psychiatric partners in crime, at the direction of the globalist Western banksters, were actually the one’s responsible for the Nazi holocaust, all to cover up the fraud of the central banking system.

    “For example, in Western cultures, happiness is an overt goal and highly valued, whereas, in many Asian cultures, life is seen as a series of ups and downs—this influences memory.”

    My experience was that a child rape covering up psychologist wanted to destroy the happiness of my American family, for satanic, unhappy, jealous, child rape covering up, child sacrificing, “cocaine dealing,” Russian and Ukrainian pedophiles in America.

    So, I’m quite certain the systemic, child rape covering up American psychological industry is on the wrong side. But this does, of course, lead to “ups and downs” in one’s life, including extreme defamations of one’s character, which is illegal.

    So those of us living in Western society, dealing with these scientifically “invalid” psychological and psychiatric systems, should absolutely NOT be exporting these systemic, child rape covering up psychological and psychiatric systems to the rest of the world. These satanic systems need to be ended instead.

    “Western schooling’s emphasis on rote learning.”

    As somewhat pointed out above, the Western school system is totally upside down and backwards. As any concerned parent, with a brain in their head, knows already. For God’s sake, my school’s social workers want to get their grubby little hands on the well behaved children, because they got 100% on their state standardized tests. Off to prep school, darling, since your school district is “not equipped to deal with the most intelligent children.” WTF?

    “Studies show that people in cultures with negative stereotypes towards aging show a more pronounced memory decline.”

    Don’t get me started on the total disrespect of the wisdom of the elders in America, by the US medical community, and society as a whole.

    “Westerners remembered more self-owned objects than Asians, who tended to remember self or other-owned objects equally and remembered mother-owned objects the most.”

    Oh, but the American psychological and psychiatric industries are all about defaming and attempting to murder, and steal from, the American mommies. And, trust me, I have medical proof of 14 attempted murders, and legal proof of the attempted thievery of all profits of my work, and money, by psychologists.

    And the psychological and psychiatric industries have delusions that all stay at home moms, who are also artists working on our portfolios, and very active volunteers, are “irrelevant to reality,” “w/o work, content, and talent,” and “unemployed,” without ever looking at our work. Then, when they finally look at our work, they conclude our work is “insightful” and “work of smart female.” Then the satanic child rape covering up psychological system attempts to steal all our work, because it’s “too truthful.”

    “Memories in line with cultural goals and expectations would be related to a sense of well-being (person-culture-fit framework).”

    But since the goals of the psychological and psychiatric industries are covering up child abuse, at any cost, for their religions. Maintaining that business is NOT in the best interests, “well-being,” of those who work within those DSM deluded industries. Since the goals of the DSM worshipping “mental health” industries are satanic. And the DSM “bible” is a child abuse covering up “bible,” by design, even according to the ethical people within your own industry.

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

    “Despite this review, research lags behind in understanding memory in its context and history, which could fundamentally alter the psychological research paradigm.”

    Yes, psychological research lags behind, because too many of the psychologists bought into the scientific fraud based, psychiatric industry’s, systemic child abuse covering up, DSM “bible.” And their iatrogenic illness creation business.

    Wake up psychologists and psychiatrists, repent, and utilize your malpractice insurance for what it was intended. Stop defaming people with your “invalid” DSM disorders, and killing people with your neurotoxic psychiatric drugs. You’re murdering “8 million” innocent people EVERY year.

    https://www.nimh.nih.gov/about/directors/thomas-insel/blog/2015/mortality-and-mental-disorders.shtml

    We need an end to our modern day, ongoing, psychiatric/psychological/social worker, et al holocaust. Wake up, American (and India) psychologists!

  • The psychiatrists and psychologists I have worked with do like to attack the pretty young women, and especially the artists. Just an FYI, if you were ever put on the antidepressants or antipsychotics, both drug classes can create “voices,” or “psychosis,” via anticholinergic toxidrome. Plus, being weaned off of them can result in a drug withdrawal induced “super sensitivity manic psychosis.” I also had to do my own research. Glad you, too, escaped, Bojana.

    And I must agree, I don’t know what’s “professional” about claiming to know nothing about the common adverse effects of the drugs one prescribes. Thanks for sharing your story.

  • I will say, my children’s school district did not run into the same problems. But a school social worker did want to neurotoxic poison my child, once he’d healed from child abuse, and gotten 100% on his state standardized tests.

    But the school principal did quickly confess, “we aren’t equipped to deal with the smartest children,” once I’d pointed out her school social workers’ stupidity and lack of ethics. And told her I knew, and taught my children since they were very young, that they may need to be sent to private school for high school.

    God forbid, the intelligent people of a society try to bring everyone else up, rather than just calling themselves “the elite.” And trying to destroy our country, with their satanic systems.

    Let’s hope and pray, all are judged fairly by God. And I still have faith, and hope, God will judge all fairly.

  • “They go in for a broken leg and get sent to psychiatry to check their head.” And if you’ve had the misfortune of dealing with a “bad fix” on a broken leg bone, you’re misdiagnosed and defamed as “bipolar.”

    It’s all about the money, and psychiatry represents the kings and queens of attempting to murder innocent people, to cover up malpractice and child abuse.

  • I was pointing out long ago a huge number of student, very violent, suicides in the Barrington, IL school district, too. When I lived in that area, Barrington High School had the highest suicide rate of any school in the country.

    But let’s all be realistic, the psych drugs can cause such issues, even according to the black box labels now on those drugs. But, unfortunately they put the “mental health” workers – who claim to know nothing about the common adverse effects of the psych drugs – in charge of covering up those suicides.

    We need to fix the schools, not neurotoxic poison the children.

  • “Antidepressants should be avoided in bipolar depression,” and “mania.” So should the antipsychotics, since combining the antidepressants and/or antipsychotics can result in anticholinergic toxidrome, which looks like “bipolar” or “schizophrenia” to the DSM deluded.

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

    Probably they should be avoided for all those stigmatized by the “mental health professionals” with any of the DSM disorders, since all their DSM “bible” disorders have been confessed to be “invalid.”

    https://www.nimh.nih.gov/about/directors/thomas-insel/blog/2013/transforming-diagnosis.shtml

    “The researchers noted that when untreated, bipolar disorder episodes usually resolve naturally, ‘typically within six months or less.'”

    Then why use drugs at all for the “invalid” “bipolar” stigmatization? And why do DSM deluded “mental health” workers believe “bipolar” is a “lifelong, incurable, genetic mental illness,” with zero scientific proof?

    I’m quite certain all the non-medically trained, DSM deluded, “mental health” workers, who know nothing about the common adverse and withdrawal effects of the psych drugs, should learn to live and let live, and leave other people alone.

    Because some of us, have done our homework, and can embarrass you. By pointing out your industry’s, and your religion’s, systemic child rape covering up crimes.

  • “Parkinson’s disease psychosis” is a problematic concept. Because Parkinson’s disease is a movement “disease,” treated with the antipsychotics/neuroleptics. And the antipsychotics can create both dyskinesia, a movement disorder, as well as “psychosis,” via anticholinergic toxidrome.

    And doctors are, most of the time, not able to distinguish between movement disorders and psychosis created with the antipsychotics, and some actual, non-iatrogenic, “diseases.”

    I know, from lots of research, and because my grandmother was given Stelazine (an antipsychotic), perhaps because she was somewhat prophetic, but I’m not certain that is why. Perhaps, likely she’d dealt with prior malpractice? I’m not certain. Nonetheless, the neuroleptic prescription resulted in her then being misdiagnosed as having Parkinson’s.

    She was lucky, because her husband – a dentist, aka doctor – insisted she be weaned off the Stelazine, and her movement disorder disappeared. My grandmother never had any movement disorders or psychosis issues, according to her doctors, and when I knew her. Her doctor from her elder years did confirm this to me, since he’s still my mother’s doctor. And my grandmother did live in good health, to the ripe old age of 94.

    Absolutely, I believe, the use of antipsychotics should be banned. Since many doctors and psychiatrists claim ignorance of, and/or deny, dyskinesia and anticholinergic toxidrome. I know this from personal experience, and do have the medical evidence to prove it. And anticholinergic toxidrome is, conveniently for the psychiatrists and criminal malpractice and child abuse covering up mainstream doctors, missing from all the psychiatrists’ “invalid” DSM “bibles.”

    https://www.nimh.nih.gov/about/directors/thomas-insel/blog/2013/transforming-diagnosis.shtml

    Change is definitely needed. I’m so sorry some delusions of grandeur filled, misogynist Lutheran psychologists and pastors whom I met – neither of whom know anything about psychopharmacology research, nor about me – think it’s all about them “maintaining the status quo,” the systemic child abuse covering up business of the psychological and psychiatric industries. No, real systemic change is needed.

    This did start, under the Trump administration. But I do have concern it will end under the Biden administration. Because the multibillion dollar medical/pharmaceutical/religious systemic child abuse covering up, scientifically “invalid,” “mental health” industries, are “too profitable” to end.

  • My former Lutheran psychologist should read this article, because she gave me the very bad advise to turn off music. Thankfully, I ignored that bad advice. And what’s bizarre is I can now tell much of my life’s story in the lyrics of music.

    I remember the first time I found a song to be seemingly so descriptive of my life. I was hanging out on the roof top deck of my Chicago “brick house.” Some friends and I were listening to “Up on the roof,” and grateful to be there, rather than in the “rat race.”

    The second time it happened, I didn’t notice it, until much later. As I was moving out of Chicago, to the suburbs to raise my children. I was driving over the North Avenue bridge, and the “Bridge over Troubled Water” was playing on the radio. And it was in the suburbs that I had the misfortune of running into satanic child molesters, an “evil” child abusing and child abuse covering up Russian pastor, and his satanic child abuse covering up psychologist and psychiatrist friends. Not to mention the “evil” child abuse covering up Muslim psychiatrist and doctor. Children of the corn.

    As I was healing from all their anticholinergic toxidrome poisonings, I did some “chasing cars,” and the music lyrics on the radio seemed to coordinate with people’s car vanity plates and the street signs. It was the most staggeringly serendipitous experience of my life, and it seemed like we were all connected.

    And when I moved from my healing in the ‘burbs, to healing in Chicago. I was awakened to the concept that the kind and comedic souls of Chicago thought of me as “the tailor who sings with the Lord, who is,” of course, “just and American Girl.” (The Lord and Taylor store in Water Tower Place, my former place of employment, was turned into an American Girl store.)

    But, indeed, it does seem like He’s been “Killing me softly with his song, Telling my whole life with his words, Killing me softly with his song,” my whole life. I have a love story in my dreams. And “what’s wrong with that, I need to know….”

    Yes, indeed, music helped to save me. And “what doesn’t kill you, makes you stronger,” so I now know to tell my Lutheran psychologists to take a hike, when they attempt to nose themselves into my business.

  • Goodness, gracious, the tech companies are really angry with those of us who speak the truth about psychiatry. No doubt, because psychiatric crimes against humanity have historically always been apart of how the communists have taken over countries.

    But since I’m not a communist, and am a believer in the US constitution, and our democratic republic. I do so hope others will listen to a lady, who just today basically read the communist manifesto, out of great concern.

    A video that a friend sent me today, which describes the scientific fraud based psychiatric industry’s involvement with communism.

    Oops, facebook doesn’t allow me to copy and paste the video, but all psychiatric survivors should read the communist manifesto. Hopefully it’s still on the internet.

  • Since covering up child abuse, largely for the religions and wealthy, is the number one actual societal function of both the psychological and psychiatric professions. Which has turned the leaders of my former religion into child abuse cover uppers, too.

    I’m quite certain that getting the police to arrest the child molesters and traffickers, and getting the psychological, psychiatric, and other DSM “bible” thumping industries out of the business of aiding, abetting, and empowering wealthy pedophiles, would be a good way to help prevent harm to children.

  • My psychologist and psychiatrists, I eventually learned, believed that distress/grief caused by 9/11/2001, right after that event – an event that caused distress/grief to people across the entire world – was distress caused by a “chemical imbalance” in my brain alone. Which they believed required never ending neurotoxic poisonings and defamation of my character with scientifically “invalid” disorders, to my family.

    Obviously, once I learned that my psychologist and psychiatrists were nothing more than pathological liars, and child abuse cover uppers, since my child’s medical records had been handed over. I had to leave them.

    But it’s rather amazing that almost all “mental health” workers went off believing that all distress/grief is caused by “chemical imbalances” in people’s brains. And what a sick shame that covering up child abuse is the number one actual societal function of our “mental health” industries.

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

    And all this child abuse covering up is 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

    And what a shame we all now live in a “pedophile empire,” due in part to the “mental health” industry’s systemic aiding, abetting, and empowering of pedophiles.

    https://community.healthimpactnews.com/topic/4576/america-1-in-child-sex-trafficking-and-pedophilia-cps-and-foster-care-are-the-pipelines

    How insane, and criminal, can the psychological, psychiatric, social worker, and the other DSM “bible” thumping industries get? And what a shame my childhood religion partnered with these systemic child abuse cover uppers, thus my childhood religion’s bishops and pastors have turned themselves into a bunch of systemic child abuse cover uppers, also.

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

    Distress, legitimate concern, and grief are caused by distressing events. And I will say, I do believe COVID-19 is just another distressing event, from which the “mental health” industry will try to profiteer. And a way to get a child groping politician into office.

    We need to get the pedophiles, and those being blackmailed with pedophilia, out of the US government. And get rid of the systemic, child abuse covering up, scientific fraud based, so called, “mental health professions.”

    Since the “mental health” system has systemically betrayed too many of those they’ve “first and foremost” promised to “do no harm,” and it was all done, by their DSM “bible’s” design.

  • “Is a ‘patient’ intrinsically less truthful than a psychiatrist?” Obviously we’re not less truthful than Dr. Pies. And as a matter of fact, my artwork is controversial, because it’s “too truthful.”

    By the way, Dr. Pies, the ADHD drugs and antidepressants can create a “chemical imbalance” in a person’s brain, that results in symptoms that look like the “bipolar” symptoms, to the psychiatrists and psychologists. And millions of people have been misdiagnosed.

    https://www.alternet.org/2010/04/are_prozac_and_other_psychiatric_drugs_causing_the_astonishing_rise_of_mental_illness_in_america/

    The antidepressants and antipsychotics can create “psychosis” and “hallucinations,” positive symptoms of “schizophrenia,” via anticholinergic toxidrome.

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

    The antipsychotics / neuroleptics can create symptoms that look like the “negative symptoms” of “schizophrenia,” as well, via neuroleptic induced deficit syndrome.

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

    The ethical head of family medicine, at a very well respected hospital, was quite impressed with my “one in a million” medical research skills. But I have no doubt, my medical research findings are “too truthful” for most psychiatrists and psychologists. Since an unethical psychologist recently attempted to steal all my artwork and money, with a BS “art manager” contract.

    Thanks, as always, Philip, for speaking and reporting the truth. “In a Time of Universal Deceit — Telling the Truth Is a Revolutionary Act.”

  • “I’m not as self-centered as my comment history makes me out to seem, I swear!” No doubt, none of us are. We were attacked by psychologists and/or psychiatrists. And we are just trying to survive, and garner insight into reality. Since we were massively lied to, by psychiatrists and psychologists.

    Sorry you were attacked as a child, that’s why I’m in this fight, to stop such crimes against children. I was attacked, because my child was attacked by a child molester. And my former religion utilizes the psychological and psychiatric industries, as the systemic child abuse covering up arm of their religion.

    God bless, 30-watt-lightbulb. I’m quite certain you’re much more than a “30-watt-lightbulb,” since you’ve found this website. Best wishes in your healing journey.

  • Psychiatry and psychology are based upon the false belief that their DSM disorders are “real diseases, just like diabetes.” But this is not true. The ADHD drugs and antidepressants can create the “bipolar” symptoms, as Whitaker pointed out in “Anatomy of an Epidemic.”

    https://www.alternet.org/2010/04/are_prozac_and_other_psychiatric_drugs_causing_the_astonishing_rise_of_mental_illness_in_america/

    And the antipsychotics / neuroleptics, which are then given to the millions of “bipolar” misdiagnosed, can create both the negative symptoms of “schizophrenia,” via neuroleptic induced deficit syndrome. And the antidepressants and antipsychotics can also create the positive symptoms of “schizophrenia,” like “psychosis,” via anticholinergic toxidrome.

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

    So the so called social worker and “mental health professionals” I have seen, who have no medical training, thus know nothing about this medical reality, and merely worship from their DSM “bible.” I agree, they are literally people fraudulently standing in support of “Psychiatry Functioning as a Conspiracy Theory-Based Cult.”

    For goodness sakes, the “mental health” workers’ DSM bible was literally declared “invalid” by the head of NIMH, in 2013. Yet, the “mental health” and social worker professions have yet to confess to this reality, change, and repent for their evil ways.

    https://www.nimh.nih.gov/about/directors/thomas-insel/blog/2013/transforming-diagnosis.shtml

    We have literally medically proven the scientific fraud of the “conspiracy theories” of the “mental health” and social worker professions. What else must we do to end the systemic, scientific fraud of the psychiatric, psychological, social worker, CPS, satanic child rape covering up systemic crimes and belief system, of the so called “mental health” industries?

  • “Unfortunately these services do not exist at the moment, but they are coming.”

    “these people are currently undertaking a complex, stressful, unpaid, undervalued role that should be provided by the original prescribers.”

    Shame on the psychiatrists, psychologists, and other doctors, who are forcing and coercing these drugs onto innocent others, with “chemical imbalance” and other lies. Doctors who know nothing about the common adverse and withdrawal effects of the drugs they prescribe.

    Distress caused by 9/11/2001 was NOT distress caused by a “chemical imbalance” in my brain alone, but this is what the “political abuse of psychiatry,” systemic child abuse covering up, psychologists and psychiatrists believe. How insane and criminal can they get?

    And I agree with the interviewee in the video, very slow taper is needed. As one who was unknowingly prescribed an antidepressant in 2000, under the guise of a “safe smoking cessation med.” Then was abruptly taken off the antidepressant, since it did not work for smoking cessation. Then had the subsequent antidepressant discontinuation syndrome “brain zaps” symptom, misdiagnosed as “bipolar,” in late 2001.

    I will say that the “bipolar” recommended drug cocktails can create “psychosis,” via anticholinergic toxidrome. And this will always be misdiagnosed, since anticholinergic toxidrome is missing from the psychiatrist’s and psychologist’s DSM “bible.”

    And even a slow taper from the psych drugs (over three years) can result in a “drug withdrawal induced manic psychosis.”

    Ten plus years after being weaned from the psych drugs, I still have the “brain zaps.” So most definitely, the common withdrawal symptoms of the antidepressants can last, possibly, indefinitely.

  • “That would mean that psychiatrists base what they do on an idea that _others_ are conspiring. He offers no support for such an assertion.” I pointed out above, that the psychiatrists and psychologists do “conspire,” to systemically cover up child abuse, for the mainstream religions. I have medical proof this happened to my family, in my family’s medical records.

    Systemically covering up child abuse, for the religions’ and our society’s wealthiest, is the “secret, nefarious agenda.” And for God’s sake, we’re all now living in a “pedophile empire,” as I pointed out above.

    Do you actually believe this happened for no reason? It did not. It is the result of the psychological and psychiatric industry’s systemic child abuse covering up, scientific fraud based, BS, DSM deluded, system.

  • As a smoker, who didn’t know the legal activity of smoking cigarettes, was considered illegal, to my “bad fix” on a broken ankle covering up, paranoid of a non-existent malpractice suit, and child abuse covering up, doctors, according to my child’s medical records.

    Who disingenuously prescribed me a “safe smoking cessation med” (actual dangerous antidepressant) and a “safe pain killer” (actual “dirty opioid”). Then misdiagnosed the common symptoms of antidepressant discontinuation syndrome as “bipolar.” After that PCP had unwisely and abruptly taken me off the antidepressant.

    I think we do need to end the “war on drugs.” Since the doctors are mass prescribing mind altering drugs to people, to cover up their malpractice, for legal – albeit not wise – drug use, while lying about their crimes.

    No doubt, the doctors have been given way too much power, and it’s a shame when doctors now claim to know nothing about the common adverse effects of the drugs they prescribe. When it is now known by many, that both the antidepressants and antipsychotics (aka neuroleptics) can create “mania” and “psychosis,” via anticholinergic toxidrome.

    Which all the doctors are taught in medical school, but is not mentioned in the “mental health” workers’ DSM5 “bible,” any longer. And the antipsychotics can also create the negative symptoms of “schizophrenia,” via neuroleptic induced deficit syndrome.

    I don’t know that all drugs should be legalized, but I do believe pot should be, and maybe others. But I do believe the antidepressants, antipsychotics, benzos, and opioids should be weaned out of legalized use, by the doctors.

    Or, at least, the benzos and opioids should only be given to older, “chronic” patients. But most definitely NOT those of us who are young and healthy, who’d dealt with prior easily recognized malpractice, merely because a scum bucket PCP wants to cover up her husband’s “bad fix” on my broken ankle.

  • I do agree, love is the answer. My childhood church’s mission statement is something to the effect of “Go out and get everyone else, with love and the word of God.” And that is, according to an awakening to my dreams, supposedly what I did, albeit only within the collective unconscious.

    But unfortunately, my childhood religion – apparently long ago – decided to “conspire” with psychiatrists and psychologists, since the involved “mental health” workers agreed to cover up child abuse for my childhood religion. And now even the decent within the synod offices of my childhood religion, a pastor/author who likely read my chronologically typed up medical records (including the medical evidence of the abuse of my child, in his medical records), with my medical research listed along side, are appalled at the systemic, child abuse covering up bishops of my former religion.

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

    But, alas, the “delusional religious conspiracy,” that I knew nothing about, but my Lutheran psychologist fraudulently claimed I believed in, in late 2001, did come to fruition. And it is, in fact, a systemic medical / religious “conspiracy,” against millions of child abuse survivors, and their legitimately concerned mothers. An ethical pastor of a different religion did confess this to me, to be “the dirty little secret of the two original educated professions.”

    In fact, over 80% of those stigmatized with the DSM disorders today – by both the psychiatric and psychological professions – are child abuse survivors.

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

    And all this child abuse covering up is by DSM design. Since no “mental health” worker may ever bill any insurance company for ever helping any child abuse survivor, without first misdiagnosing them with one, or many, of the billable DSM disorders.

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

    I wonder, are the DSM “bible” thumpers proud of their systemic child abuse covering up / pedophile empowerment crimes? Now that we all live in a “pedophile empire.”

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

    But what’s good is that the psych drugs don’t make a person not believe in God. I do believe God knows all about everyone’s crimes, and I do believe God will judge all fairly. But I do agree with Jesus’ theology that repentance, and turning away from one’s evil ways, is required for forgiveness.

    Thus I agree, psychiatry and psychology must “take responsibility for [their] history and actions, and” they need “to chart a new course that drops the unverified bio-genetic foundational conspiracy theory and the injurious treatments that are based on it.” Plus they must confess and repent for the “8 million” innocent people, who they have been murdering every year, for decades.

    https://www.nimh.nih.gov/about/directors/thomas-insel/blog/2015/mortality-and-mental-disorders.shtml

    And the systemic, child abusing and child abuse covering up, religious leaders also need to repent. And we really do need to see an end of “the dirty little secret of the two original educated professions.” Plus, America needs to actually start to arrest the pedophiles, child sex traffickers, etc.

  • Thank you, as always, Philip. Hey, maybe we should renamed our “movement” the Truth about Psychiatry movement, instead of the anti-psychiatry movement? I think that’s a much more positive name, since standing for truth is good, and being “anti” tends to be viewed as negative.
