Psychiatry As A Destructive Force

Psychiatry Lies

Psychiatrists lie about the amount of money they receive from pharmaceutical companies. A US senate committee, headed by Senator Charles Grassley of Iowa, has been investigating the lies told by prominent psychiatrists concerning how much money they receive from drug manufacturers. Sometimes the amount of money lied about runs into the millions of dollars.

A psychiatrist who works for the shock device makers will tell you there are 1 in 100,000 deaths from electroconvulsive therapy every year. He will also tell you that electroconvulsive therapy is a relatively safe procedure. He’s lying.

Psychiatry Devastates

People in the lowest socioeconomic categories are 2-3 times more likely than people in the higher socioeconomic groupings to be labeled mentally ill.

The unemployment rate among people labeled mentally ill has been estimated to be between 70-90%.

20-25% of the single adult homeless population has been estimated to be labeled seriously mentally ill.

As much as 15% of the labeled mentally ill population may be homeless once during the course of a years time.

Psychiatry Maims

Neuroleptic, often called antipsychotic, drugs can cause a severe movement disorder called Tardive Dyskinesia. A person’s likelihood of developing this neurological condition goes up with continued use. People on these drugs develop TD at a rate of 5-8% per year so that 15-20% of patients taking these drugs will have developed TD after 3 years time. Among the elderly, the rate of patients developing TD is even higher and approaches 20% a year.

The newer atypical neuroleptic drugs cause diabetes and pancreatitis.

These newer drugs also cause a metabolic syndrome, producing changes in the body which include elevated blood sugar levels, elevated cholesterol levels, elevated blood pressure, and obesity.

Obesity, diabetes, heart disease, all of the conditions associated with taking of these newer atypical neuroleptic drugs can cause other crippling physical health complications, and will cut short life spans.

More than 50% of the people who have undergone electroconvulsive shock therapy have reported negative effects as a consequence of this treatment.

Electroshock always causes memory loss. This memory loss is associated with the loss of brain tissue.

Psychiatry Kills

A 16 state study conducted by the National Association of State Mental Health Program Directors, published in October 2006, revealed that people labeled mentally ill were dying on average 25 years younger than the rest of the population.

In a Massachusetts study from the 1990s the average age at death for a persons labeled mentally ill was found to be 52.4 years old while the average age for a non-labeled person was 72.4 years old.

1 in 200 people over the age of 60 die from shock treatment in a year’s time.
1 in 3000 – 4000 people under the age of 60 die from shock treatment every year.

  1. Yep,It does all four of those things and it lies at every level… every single step of any process within coercive psychiatry. The tobacco industry is blameless by comparison.

    • I thought that post would elicit a skin reaction. I wouldn’t call the tobacco industry blameless by comparison, but I would say that those comparison’s are entirely appropriate. People do blame the tobacco industry for cancer deaths while psychiatry and pharmaceutical products are used to treat the labeled mentally ill, and who cares about them. Smokers are still perceived as human beings, people labeled mentally ill, on the other hand, are somehow thought to have lost their connection with the rest of the species. If we’re not dealing with human beings here, as in a slave’s fraction of the whole value, human rights must not apply, right? I’ve got news for you. We are dealing with human beings.

      Psychiatry, psychiatrists, and the pharmaceutical industry are getting away with murder. People should be outraged. I think its only a matter of time before more and more people start realizing how bad these powerful psychiatric drugs actually are. I feel like a great cover up is going on when it comes to the average age at death of people in mental health treatment. These deaths can be laid directly at the feet of psychiatrists and the drug companies to which they respond. Bottom line, did they cease to prescribe powerful psychiatric drugs, lives would be saved.

      • I think they know that more people are going to protest in a reasonable manner and sometimes in a murderous manner. They have anticipated that and have been revising and upgrading their arsenal of propaganda and remedies.

        The tobacco industry… yeah I know. At least they don’t promote supposed benefits to the customer and enforce the use of their product.
