CCHR used to be one of the only groups protesting psychiatry’s Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM) for its bogus science and penchant for pathologizing all human behaviors and emotions into “disease”—a profitable enterprise, but one completely lacking medical or scientific validity. But we are no longer alone. More and more press are catching on to the fact that there is no science to psychiatry—and even some kingpin psychiatrists are jumping on the bandwagon.
A story entitled, “Psychiatry Profession Has Lost Its Mind,” states, “The new ‘psychiatry bible’ has been criticized by many as a testament to the insanity of the industry itself. Virtually every emotion experienced by a human being—sadness, grief, anxiety, frustration, impatience, excitement—is now being classified as a ‘mental disorder’ demanding chemical treatment with—you guessed it—pharmaceutical drugs.
“Ironically, one of its harshest critics is Allen Frances M.D., professor emeritus from the Department of Psychiatry at Duke University who was chair of the DSM-IV Task Force…” Read the rest of the article here.
About “ADHD” & Mental Disorders
By CCHR Int—We have noticed the press have been doing damage control on a recent study showing 11% of school children are now diagnosed ADHD. They’ve expressed what we would call a lightweight concern about “over-diagnosing” and the need for “comprehensive evaluation” and a lot of jargon about the right “medication” (drugs)—basically fluff. Why don’t they just cut to the chase and hard line the facts—not one of the millions of kids diagnosed ADHD has a medical test proving physical abnormality.
There is no scientific evidence to show anything wrong with their brain. There is no chemical imbalance test, and the genetic markers theory is old, tired, and unproven by science. Yet, more than 5 million kids are being prescribed ADHD drugs, which are not “medicine” as they cure nothing… Read the rest of the story here.
MARCH WITH US—MAY 18TH
SAN FRANCISCO, SATURDAY,
MAY 18th 10:30 A.M. — 6:00 P.M.
The American Psychiatric Association (APA) is holding its annual convention at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, California on May 18-22. Their “theme” is: “Pursuing Wellness Across the Lifespan.” With 9 million American children already prescribed dangerous mind-altering drugs, documented by international drug regulatory agencies to cause diabetes, mania, psychosis, heart attack, stroke, violence, suicide and sudden death, psychiatrists continue to push for millions more taxpayer dollars to screen and drug kids for “mental disorders.” This is the “wellness” psychiatrists are pursuing for our future generation. And they are releasing their latest Diagnostic and Statistical Manual 5, which turns even more childhood behavior into a disorder that can be drugged.
If you would like to join CCHR in its march against the turning of childhood behavior into a mental disorder, email firstname.lastname@example.org with your first and last name, and email address.
