Psychiatry

Recently it has become rather obvious that the psychotherapy world often stands ready and willing to create new mental sicknesses and abolish older ones in the service of [left wing] progressive ideology.

[T]he World Health Organization ha[s] twice found that schizophrenia outcomes [are] better in poor countries, where only a small fraction of patients [are] regularly maintained on [antipsychotic] drugs, compared to the developed world, where [such drugs have] become standard treatment…  [The book] Mad in America documents an appalling amount of systemic indifference and corruption, encompassing psychiatry, the pharmaceutical firms, and trusted public health organizations ostensibly advancing patient wellness, including the National Institutes of Mental Health (NIMH) and the National Association for Mental Illness (NAMI).  In [the] follow-up book, Anatomy of an Epidemic: Magic Bullets, Psychiatric Drugs, and the Astonishing Rise of Mental Illness in America, [the author] argues that the psychopharmacology revolution has not only not made lives [of most mentally ill people in the U.S.] better, but has in fact fueled an epidemic of the very conditions it purports to be correcting.

Leading psychiatrists question psychiatry’s diagnostic manual

[W]e psychiatrists have been distracted from studying the causes and natures of [so-called transgenders’] mental misdirections by preparing them for surgery and for a life in the other sex.  We have wasted scientific and technical resources and damaged our professional credibility by collaborating with madness rather than trying to study, cure, and ultimately prevent it.

For decades, transgenderism and gender identity disorder had been classified as mental disorders by the American Psychiatric Association (APA) in that organization’s Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM)…  In December 2012, the APA quietly announced changes to its DSM. In version 5, Transvestitism, Transgenderism, and Gender Identity Disorders were eliminated and replaced with a new term: ‘Gender Dysphoria.’…  With a stroke of a pen, transvestitism, transgenderism, and gender identity disorder were no longer considered mental disorders…  Based on the DSM-5, if you are a male and identify as a female, this is now considered “normal.” This new “normal” defies logic and common sense. One of the many unintended consequences of the APA’s cowardly actions is that the new DSM is used as the authority for sports competitions — something the APA never envisioned and the DSM was never designed for…  In previous versions of the DSM, where the behaviors associated with transvestitism, transgenderism, and gender identity disorders were considered a mental disorder, health insurance companies and hospitals would not authorize so-called sexual reassignment surgery for a mental illness.  That ‘corrective’ surgery was not warranted.  Those seeking sexual reassignment had to pay for the surgery to approximate that effect themselves, either at a private clinic or overseas.  Prior to the DSM-5, the appropriate treatment for gender identity disorders was therapy…  There were many members of the APA who saw that the aggressive lobbying efforts of LGBTQ and other sexual activists would result in a substantial body of APA member psychiatrists kowtowing to the activists’ demands…  The APA and its DSM have been fully compromised and are now subject to social engineering, undue influence, and new definitions that are not supported by the evidence.  If you thought you had problems with men in your daughter’s locker room or men winning women’s track events, wait until the LGBTQ activists are able to remove their next offending personality disorder, pedophilia, from the DSM…  The federal government federalized airport security when it learned that it had been fully compromised by a hostile and aggressive force whose sole goal was to destroy American culture.  The APA has been fully compromised by a rabid group of sexual activists, and the DSM needs to be federalized and managed as a ‘national standard.’  A national diagnostic and statistical manual should not be subject to social justice and party politics influence.

The APA had altered its assessment of pedophilia, which it previously had classified as a psychiatric disorder, but later reclassified as an alternative sexual orientation…  Add to all this the fact that psychiatrists commit suicide at a rate at least five times that of the general public, and the image produced of psychiatrists is that of a group whose mental health is unquestionably lacking.

Elements of Big Psychiatry are quietly working to treat religious fundamentalism as a mental illness

“[A 2020 pro-abortion] ‘study’, published [as ‘science’ rather than fraudulent propaganda] by JAMA Psychiatry… found that 99% of women do not regret their abortions five years after obtaining one.  The ‘study’ also found that most women experienced emotions of relief rather than regret after abortion…  But doctors, academics and pro-life activists [responded] that the study is flawed and funded by those with a stake in the abortion movement…  Dr. Christina Francis, who is an OBGYN… noted that more than 75% of the women who were eligible to participate in the study refused to do so, and the ‘small remaining fraction that participated were more likely to be women that felt good about their abortions rather than those who didn’t, something known as selection bias… Of the 75 peer-reviewed studies that exist on abortion and mental health, nearly 70% show that women who have abortions have an increased risk of adverse mental health outcomes‘…  [Even the far-left wing magazine] Mother Jones writer Kevin Drum also pointed out that the sample included in the study ‘is self-selected, not random‘…  Better studies using actual medical data dispute the claims from the current study…  Dr. Michael New… said the study was carried out by a team of researchers affiliated with the Bixby Center for Global Reproductive Health…  This is a research center known for its very strong support of legal abortion.

[D]rug companies have stolen the soul of psychiatry… they’ve reduced everything to chemical imbalances.  The people [mostly psychiatrists] who talk about this usually go on to argue that the true causes of mental illness are capitalism and racism.

The bottom line here is that all of this so-called mental health expertise is, with a very few exceptions, a scam.  The ranks of psychiatrists and psychologists are filled with incompetents who have no business deciding whether or not a mentally ill person should be hospitalized…
