  • Yea but simple things arent glamorous.
    A lot of professionals , especially in the MH field, have a need to complexify things in order to shore up their appearance of mastery. Poke through the balloon, and the illusion collapse.
    Vast castles are built on thin air, or airy self-importance.

    Its all about selling epistemic status, which is an other form of exploitation of the powerless.
    Homo homini lupus, even in the theories.

    One can say that the MH industry is a greedy overcomplification of empathy, humanity, and keen advice.
    Its an amazing and scary chimera, which has planted its nest on the back of those it is purported to help.

  • I disagree about what is presented as a habit bias.
    It is indeed a profit bias.
    Attention is forced there for reasons that far supersede the mere custom of research. It is locked by exploiting powers, not just a lazy paradigm.

    Besides, the highlighted spot is not really full of light. The industry has been searching for decades, greedily scrutinizing the bio domain to no avail.
    So its not an arbitrary receptor of light. More like a blind dump artificially bloated by greedy powers which are interested in locking the status quo.

    Exploring the self-fueling quality of dominant paradigm is interesting, but I really think it is misplaced when it comes to the paralysis exerted by greedy behemoths.

    It does not do justice to the abuse, IMO.

  • It reminds me of Jay Joseph who was saying that secluding external factors from intrinsic factors is invalid, hence the binary estimate of heritability was fallacious. Just labels for the sake of a make believe nosology.

    Also, because a drug has an effect does not make it a a legitimate corrective.

    AND, I am really sick of the ‘improved neuronal transmission’.
    Psychotropics don’t ‘increase’ neurotransmission in the sense of enhancement.
    The brain is too complicated to be enhanced by humans means, at least for now.

    Psychotropics mess with it and hinder important mechanisms, which prompt the brain to activate defensive and compensatory reactions in an effort to curb dysfunction.
    Some of the distorsion can have effects on the mind, to the extent that a drug can have psychological alterations. But there is a price to pay for that, like for any drug.

    SSRI litteraly means, ‘lets fuck up your serotonin recapture’.

    Enough of this neuromodulation BS.
    A drug aint a brain enhancer. Period.

  • I can answer the question.

    Sorry i did not read the article I have the covid and im sick as fuck, but i could not resist replying that.

    I already said I was a child destroyed by antidepressants.

    They destroyed my abilites and nullified my humanity.
    My education was butchered because of the disability entailed.
    Actually, I was so disabled that school TRAUMATIZED me. Doings things was so impaired that my body FLINCHED every time somebody was mentioning school or work, because the handicap made things TERRORIZE me, because doing things was so difficult.

    (and of course I thought it was because i was mentally ill, a sick and faulty individual, whereas it was the drugs which were causing it)

    That and i did not grow up. No emotion, dementia. No humanity.

    My right to ability and to develop were just DISCARDED.

    Thats what is done to children.

  • I was a child who was destroyed by antidepressants.

    I did not grow up with the world and myself like the other.
    I had dementia, no emotions, and was so disabled that I was destined to nothing but be an oblivious, demented, hollow and inhuman wreck, without even having had the chance to know what life is and what to be human tastes. In many ways, I was more a monster, a mad creation, than a human.

    I also almost killed myself during an AD switch. I was absolutely not suicidal. It felt as if my brain had been hijacked and was obsessed by self-termination, in a very impersonal, robotic way. Very scary.

    That society is still discussing the viability of messing with its children brain is profoundly disgusting.

  • A lot of the approach of mentall distress is undermined by the healer need for protection against it.

    A lot of so called healers believe in it (the chemical defect) to give themselves a sense of competency, and above that a sense of security and immunity (‘just a medical problem treatable by doctors which is caused by bad genes obviously i dont have etc’)

    Funny how a system which boasts clairvoyance ability and mastery of madness is completely corrupted by blindness to basic projections and safeguards against one’s vulnerability.

  • Im so tired of this shit.
    Im so tired of this hydra which purports to be innocent.

    I remember perfectly my first ad withdrawal.
    I was 16. So innocent and so wrecked (tho i had the chance not be drugged during my childhood, only the teen period) I had confusion, lethargy and severe cognitive problems for months (before being misdiagnosed and restarted on ad, lol). It completely ruined my graduation year.

    They have no fucking clue what their experiment entail.

    It is time that they are dragged onto a public place, have their mouth forced open, and stuffed with their brain bullets.

    It its time that they learn.

    After having lived all that I lived at their hands, it is incredible seeing them more than a decade later still casting the denial refrain.

  • And then this society locks up and denigrates people with unconventional beliefs, although its belief in psych drug is at least on the same level of quirk. The only difference is that the quirk is conventional and enforced.

    A belief which is dangerous and destructive.

    So we have a society with strange DESTRUCTIVE thoughts which locks up people for their strange thoughts in the name of safety. lol.

    Psychiatrists are the most dangerous madmen who ever walked the earth. They just chose the good delusion.

  • ‘In this country, we now spend over twenty billion dollars a year on treatment for something called “ADHD.” For that amount of money, we could pay the mid-career salaries of an extra 365,000 teachers or 827,000 teachers’ aides. At what point do we ask whether we wish to continue pouring money down this particular black hole? If not now, when?’

    This.

    Humanity is a race of being who use their taxes to finance the poisoning of their children.
    Money above everything else.

    Corporations have corrupted everything, so that after exploiting the labour, they also exploit their taxes and the body of their children.

    Has anyone seen Alien director’s cut? (its a deleted scene so not really a spoiler)
    At the end of the movie there is a deleted scene where Ripley see a wall covered by an organic matter, and she soon noticed two of her former comrades digested by the wall into alien eggs.

    I have always thought that it is a fitting metaphor of the psychiatry-pharma monstrosity.
    Humans whose value are just their bodies exploited like ressources, swallowed and digested into the callous reproductive system of a predator.

    Now in the movie the swallowed ones were adults.
    In this real (?) world, it is children.

  • I have come to realize that drugs are prescribed mainly on the basis on flawed and greedy short term studies.

    This is really scary, that so few precautions are taken, that risks are blindly discarded and ignored.

    Risks are not dutifully considered and explored and this is nothing short of utter madness.

    I was a child whose mind was sacrificed by antidepressants.
    I grew up with dementia and was so impaired that I actually developped a phobia of productivity (which was severely hampered), as well as a fear of thinking. I had to relearn to talk, so I know what this article is about.

    When will there be reason in psychiatry (and medicine), and respect for human life? (and yes this is a cry of desperation)

  • Yeah. Sounds like ‘Surveillance’ rather than ‘Digital’ psychiatry.

    This is ridiculous because human problems assigned mental disorders are deeply personal, symbolic, and contextual. And a machine can’t read that.

    Monitoring humanity expression’s ‘FORMS’, rather than ‘MEANING’ cannot solve problems. At best it can police and enforce a system (psychiatry my old friend here you are…).

    On a side note, this completely inadequate device also shows that the psychiatrists behind it don’t understand shit about what their work is about, and are thus also utterly inadequate.
    They should be fired and mocked.

    Seriously, humanity’s proficency in self-servingness, megalomany, and blind dumbness is AMAZING.

  • I personally never liked the term ‘extreme’.

    Extreme compared to what, moderation? What is moderated and what is extreme? Aren’t those moral judgements propping up social order?

    I dont think ‘distressed’, ‘disruptive’, or ‘intense’ are aptly encapsulated by ‘extreme’.

    It actually sounds like a cleaning formulation which aims to neutralize the phenomenon by naming it and giving a false sense of explanation and thus security (psychotic phenomena are just extreme humanity), EXACTLY like a diagnosis does.
    It could also be a way to purge the ‘psychotic’ self image (“Yeah, i was psychotic, you know, i somewhat got overwhelmed by the extreme” etc).

    It does no justice to the actual phenomenon, the person implied, and the suffering entailed. It is just a way to capture the thing and turn it towards an entity own comfort/convention.
    (I am not saying it was your intent, I just pounced on it on a general level, not your personal use).

  • Wtf?
    Has psychiatry really been compared with Eric Clapton and thus indirectly termed “a god”?
    I find this grave.

    And no Soteria was not equal to psychiatry. Not if you take long term into account.
    Psychiatry treatment is drugging, remember. Antipsychotics are chemical cosh.

    So short term Soteria is a at least equal to AP deactivation (same result as a concussion).
    BUT in the long term, psychiatry miserable outcome is completely crushed by the human, responsible, and SUSTAINED results that Soteria stands for.

    Its not a healing competitor. There is no competition.
    Besides, people who need help are not market shares that need to be raced for.

    Saying that it threatened psychiatry pararadigm makes it sound like it is just an intellectual blunder and ideological territory. It is more vicious than that.
    It threatened its -self serving- paradigm and its -power- territory.

    Please dont water down the ugly truth.

    There is no room for psychiatry, because, as Phil Hickey perfectly summarizes: it is “fundamentally flawed and rotten”.

  • “I suggest that mental health practitioners are best thought of as philosophical guides who adopt interpretive frameworks (paradigms) that they use to construct a particular narrative for describing the nature of a problem and the process of change.”

    Here comes the venerable philosopher dispensing his lofty consideratiosn and uncanny acumen onto the feeble mind of the tormented.

    I am sorry but philosophy has had very little practical value for human kind. Its value lies best in the pseudoeliticism of saying things in a convoluted way, which makes it little more than the ramblings of sophists who put on the veneer of wisdom without having been able to efficiently produce it.

    I find this kind of self-aggrandizing fantasy dangerous. Helping people is not intellectual aristocracy. Its muddy. Its sad, painful, and bloody.

    You have to get your hands dirty, to be able to be with a fellow human being, before even being able to interpret and exert an intellectual power, which lies so dangerously near the appeal of the personal prowess.
    I always cringe when I hear Moncrieff talks about philosophy. Human misery is much dirtier than that.

    That and the eternal problem of the systems (here paradigms, aka interpretative systems). Systems, particularly intellectual ones, are often ideologies which end up fought for rather than use for. Human nature always make it degenerate into a war of schools and blindness to reality.

    You dont need good interpretative systems to be a good interpret. Its the bad one who needs them, and who cherishes them because they add another bullet to the imaginary belt of the intellectual cowboy they purport to be.

    I am saying all this because healer is a role that humanity can sadly corrupt in so many ways, which ends up being harmful for the suffering one. And Im very sensitive to it. Intellectual aristocracy and delusion is one of them.

    I think helping people is simpler and dirtier than that. I would put humility before intellectual capacity (though the latter is also required).

    And yes I know being a good healer and above all a good and lucid human being is very hard. Granted.

  • There is a big problem as early as the title.

    Holistic psychiatry is a glamorized amendment of people who are unable to relinquish their medical and personal status. They play the critical hero all the while displaying the same status-clinging, field-cherishing, and obliviousness as the common priest-psychiatrist. They just moved their inadequacy in the land of vitamins.

    Medical skills are unsuited for the assistance of human distress. Period. There is no roundabout.
    Plumbers are as fitted as doctors for that, so where are the articles about ‘integrative plumbery’ on MIA?

    Medicine practitioners are not fitted for the helping of human distress. AND, because their ‘endeavour’ was so catastrophic, they are unwelcome.

    Integrative practitioners have no power and will never make the Industry tremble. They are dangerous only for us, the survivors, because they can distract us with their flickering mushy ‘alternative’, which is just another system.

    And systems are never good for helping people. Only good and smart people can, but they are rather rare.
