“We need to be honest with individuals and their families about what we do and do not know”. Yes indeed, but in the UK it would appear that mainstream psychiatry dismisses with arrogance and contempt the GMC demanded Duty of Candour. It is almost impossible to even complain about the cruelty, contempt and injury inflicted on those correctly – (and often incorrectly) labelled as “psychotic” by these drug-dependent pseudo-physicians. Injuries callously caused to those whom, once labelled, have in effect lost all human rights. For those labelled and detained for forced drugging, their human rights are lost for life, along with access to all life’s joys and rewards. Psychiatry can neither be questioned nor challenged. It most certainly cannot be criticised. To do so merely confirms their “correctness” and invites retribution. It is impossible to seek redress for the maiming neurological, endocrine, metabolic, genito-sexual, integumentary and disfigurement injuries. Not a hope of recognition of the emotional, relationship, financial destruction, nor of the lifelong devastation of self esteem. Dishonesty, arrogance, contempt for patients, contempt for families, ignorance and denial of agonising and irreversible ADRs, refusal to ever contemplate an apology to those so terribly injured by psychotropic prescription medications: – these are the characteristics of psychiatrists which I have observed with disbelief. There are gifted, courageous and persecuted exceptions who may wish to withhold antipsychotics, to be aware, and to be cautious with drugs and to prevent iatrogenic injury. These are the only ones who merit the title “doctor”. There are some who are not diagnostically astute enough to differentiate SSRI/SNRI induced toxic delusion from functional psychosis. I have seen this error and witnessed akathisia “treated” with enforced antipsychotics. It is essential that those who are responsible for such errors are called to account. Attitudes will never change whilst immunity to criticism and accountability predominates. Without accountability: – Dishonesty to, and deception of individuals and their families will remain the routine modus operandi. Thank you Doctor Steingard. TRM 123. Retired Consultant Physician.
