Not indifferent citizens say about psychiatry. S
January 1st, 20:03
S. Adam Bernstein Some of my foes, whose names shall remain nameless, accuse me of hating psychiatrists. That's not entirely true because I LOVE Thomas Szasz!
S Benmosche New York, NY A study I saw about 40 odd years ago indicated "aversion therapy" to have short lived (if any) benefit when compared to "positive reinforcement" teaching techniques. Torture is inhumane. Ban it!
Sam Fisher Heres a poem for you guys palm are sweating exasperating. Heavy breathin mixed emotions. Fluxuation, norstalgia kicks in need an asprin. Head is pounding need remedy or else im drowning. Anxiety Anxiety take awa my anxiety.

Sam Hencier People in general have no idea what a disruption psychiatry is to their victims lives. Its a major robbery of the victims finances, and a molestation of the soul of its victims. It robs its victim of his or her identity and destroys their ability to work and provide for themselves under the false premise that the victim was already not able to provide for themselves or take care of themselves... and then psychiatry makes that a reality... and the US was t feeling psychiatry during ww2 in Germany with all the mass murders of Jews etc. in Germany.
Now everybody’s cool with psychiatry and it’s causing more problems than ever right here on our home turf... but that’s none of my business like Kermit the Frog... Chicago
Samsara Music I almost feel like crying when i think about how brainwashed people are... I told my mother, the one who instead of parenting me took me to dozens of doctors who did nothing but write prescriptions ON THE FIRST VISIT within FIVE MINUTES of talking to me. 5 minutes of me talking tells you i need Prozac, Depakote, Xanax, and Seroquel? No i was drugged. I had THE WORST WITHDRAWAL coming off that shit I literally had phycosis. And my mother blamed pot for this, it brings tears to my face sh is blind
Sandra Jones Has anyone had any positive experiences from any workers in psychiatry?
Sarah Khavari What's up? I hate psychiatry. I hate forcible medication sometimes even sanctioned by police. Let's devour the system and eat it apart. How do we do this? Should we write some books? Videos? Who's made a video?
Sarah Knutson Has anyone tried using the federal tort claims act to challenge the fda refusal to follow the congressional mandate to act related to ect as a continuing injury resulting in ongoing harms to individuals . The statute arguably could cover any harms that occurred from ect in the past 2 years that the fda arguably should have known would result from their failure to comply with the congressional mandate to follow up on ect

Scott Vog They are not doctors they are drug dealers. When they actually sit there and talk to patients you could begin the even consider that their doctors but they don't do that they just sit there and throw drugs out like it's candy.
Se Sa Asking for comments here also kill me or not for this m already dead...There is proof about bad effects of smoking in body but what about antipsychotics? People don want pregnant mothers to smoke but nobody ever considered antipsychotics?
Sean Heeger Not sure what country this group is based in. But I never knew psychiatry to be anything more that one big tap dance to silence people and get money out of their medical insurance carrier. The United States just rubber stamps everything psychs claim somone has wrong with them (no t thinking like the rest of the herd). I always though proof is what mattered in all claims. it's disgusting as usual. I flip off psychiatrist every time I see one.
I'd pay good money for some anti-psychiatry liberation guidance. My mistrust and hatred of psychiatry isn't enough to set me free. Just a little coaching or cheer-leading would go far to help me.
Seif Maamoun Myeaa...except that when a mental health professional diagnoses an individual, the latter gets to know what he/she has to deal with in order to get propre treatment? Cuz this is exactly what mental illness is a about: malfunctionning of an individual on the cognitive/behavioral/affective level. No stigma about that right?
Now, a run-away slave actually flees enslavement in order to be functional in one's own life...his comparisons are poorly fetched.
Nothing wrong with knowing there is something fucked up about you or about the ones you care about, or shall we just sleep in denial in order to avoid been "stigmatized"?

Sharon Addison My son's and mine human rights are being abused. He is in a psychiatric hospital and has been in seclusion for 86 days,the last time l had any contact with him was 4th October 2017,so Christmas and New year wasn't celebrated. There are a few members of staff that are caring,but the rest have no compassion whatsoever and shouldn't be in a "caring profession ".At the moment l don't know when l will be able to see him and l do not think a hospital can do this. Mental cruelty is condoned in this country,as all governments turn the other cheek and therefore condone this barbaric profession called Psychiatry.
Sharon Cretsinger In this document, I have attempted to summarize all of the sections of this bill by their most important points so that they can be easily understood and referenced. If someone is interested only in grants, for example, that individual can easily access information about the section of the bill that deals with grants. At the same time, this is more than an informational document. I am not a professional policy wonk and the renderings of policy are not intended to be perfect. They are intended to be comprehensible. Similarly, the commentary I add at the end of each section is mine alone. Many will agree or disagree, or some combination thereof. This summary is written from my perspective, as a former clinician and service user and present survivor of psychiatric atrocities. It is written for my community of people who feel similarly about the atrocities, abuses and social controls of psychiatry. I can say that, if I held same positions as this bill’s author, I would be very proud to have written H.R. 2646. Each section supports and reiterates other sections in a cohesive manner. Given that I do not hold their positions, I can say it is a very dangerous document, whether or not it passes, because it indicates the directions of force, coercion and dehumanization that my community currently faces. Particularly, this bill targets not only those persons labeled with a psychiatric diagnosis, but also those who are doubly disenfranchised by being young, old, poor, differently abled cognitively or part of a minority community.
This bill has nine sections that are outlined below, with a…

Sharon Rose Poet The pharmaceuticals aid technological mind control and it all must be stopped as soon as possible
Sian Whitehead In Peter Kinderman's new book " A prescription for psychiatry " he writes: 'One commentator on a recent paper discussing the emotional impact of childhood abuse suggested that: ‘the possibility cannot be ruled out that a child destined to develop schizophrenia may show characteristics in childhood that increase the risk of abuse’.
This is more or less implying that the child who is abused has something wrong with him/ her and the abuse occurs because of what is wrong with the child not the abuser ! Kinderman is describing the 'disease model ' of psychiatry but I really think this is going too far. To blame a child for being abused is taking the model too far and just shows how disease model psychiatrists are talking too much rubbish and do not deserve any credibility at all !

Sinbad King funny how some people "put aside gender issues" on a gender biassed basis__but that aside, we cant "work it out" no more the "stress management" of the preceeding decades whci was a way of continuing to increase the stress and blame the individual__Stress must be lessened, we are suffering an epidemic of stress that we are not biologically equipped to deal with, (and we deny ourselves the natural expression that is __FIGHT or flight__that is immediate resolution). And thenwe continue to blame the individual for being "Mentally Ill"___It is a sick society that imposes such conditions on people and their expression is a proper and normal human reaction to those extreme and abusive conditions https://www.facebook.com/mrdsankey/posts/1127983320546595 http://qoo.by/3pVe

Skyline ToTheSeaAndme Psychiatry is literally a conspiracy in the bigger overall New World Order conspiracy of total authoritarian/totalitarian control over all human beings, technology, and planetary systems where the tools are recyclic revenue generation (fascism/ Communism and everything in between) to increase the power of the financial elite, and wealth extraction/taxation/inflation, to weaken the power of the masses to survive and control their own destiny. The goal is to make them dependent on government for their very survival and remove their liberty, human and constitutional rights, and national sovereignty (Communism); First their own national governments, and then the abolition of them under a world global government (U.N.). Psychiatrists have the power in the courts to literally enable government to remove your rights/freedom/liberty, based on their "professional" opinion only, and without any scientific validation of it.
Special Needs Schools Matter Caldwell, NJ Please stop terrorising our children with shock devices. This is despicable.
Spiritfired Are there similar people like Dr. Niall in Queensland? I've been almost forced to shove meds up my pie hole and I would really want to know if there's a kindred soul who doesn't believe in this .... this BULLSHIT.
Stephanie Green McVeytown, PA Continuation: I at least have a voice, and I did file a complaint, but naturally the hospital was in the right. I don't understand why these organizations like NAMI, etc, don't advocate more. I try to advocate and educate as many folks as possible. I freely tell people that I have an anxiety disorder and depression. I was a paramedic, and lived in a metaphorical closet for fear of retribution from an employer, or a partner not trusting me. I've heard every derogatory comment in the book. Like I always say, things people don't understand, they fear and ridicule. I am out to educate as many people as I can with whatever time I have left in this wretched world.
Steve Cook Who will Defend our Kids? Bipolar Fraud and the Psychiatric Drugging of Children. The Liberty Beacon UK
All right, so the so-called Bipolar epidemic is a fiction and fabrication. A criminal psychiatrist has been caught out in America taking massive bribes from pharmaceutical companies for fiddling test results so that the psychopharmacy can make lots of money by drugging children. You can read the full scandal here
This is a criminal conspiracy to defraud the public AND child abuse. If drugging a little kid on the basis of a bogus “illness” and cynically fraudulent fake science doesn’t count as abuse of that child and is of so little concern the perpetrators are not brought to justice, then we have sunk considerably deeper into the abyss.
While we are busy criticising the rest of the world for how it lives and sometimes bombing them when they fail to live up to our civilised standards, we would do better to take a good look at ourselves and this drugged-up, lazy, irresponsible, cowardly, sheep-like shambles we have allowed to come into being and laughingly refer to as “civilisation.”
Meanwhile, we wait in vain for the full force of the law to bring retribution down on the heads of these criminals, to ensure they can never commit this kind of abuse again and for government in the USA and here In the UK to lift a ruddy finger to protect children.
What do we get? No action, nothing done, business as usual and the drugging of our kids just goes on and on.
This latest scandal comes hot on the heels of another egregious example of cynical fraud and deception designed to rake in money for the serial drug pushers and abusers of the psychopharmacy by preying on innocent children. This was the confession by the arch criminal Leon Eisenberg, the “father” and discoverer of ADHD that he made the whole thing up whole thing up.
Steven Eric Garside Watch this. Richard Fee's parents are speaking on it. Richard was misdiagnosed with ADHD in 2009 and became psychotic and delusional after taking Adderall for two years. He hung himself on 7th November 2011 at the age of 24, and was found dead by his horrified parents. That smug jackass Hallowell also appears on it.
Very upsetting and moving

Stevens Robert Abbigale Here.... take these, you will have side effects, so... take these to get rid of those side effects, and those are going to give you side effects so take these to help with that. You are going to get fat, your hair is going to fall out, you won't be able to function or have relationships. You will lose all your friends. You will spend a lot of time crying or laughing at who knows what. You will be in and out of the hospital, you might just try to kill yourself. Psychiatrists are bottom of the class DR's. Making money requires them to write prescriptions.They hope you are stupid enough to take them.
Stewart Cambridge This group is about psychiatry. The essence of psychiatry is naming a "wrongness" about a person, claiming it is their identity, and using that to make nothing out of the person, and justify violence and loss of freedom. In other words, a diagnosis is formalised stigmatisation. A formalised insult. In other words, it is legalised bullying. It's the psych telling someone what _they_ think is wrong, and insisting they "correct" it or face coercive handling. So, everyone here should understand and empathise what it is like to be treated that way; What it is like to be not-believed; to be be disregarded; to be stigmatised because of viewpoint or belief; to be told "your opinion is not worthy"; to be told "you are mentally deficient". Anyone here should understand this, because this is what psychiatry does. So please, everyone here, take a moment to consider what it means to fall into that same mistake, that same trap, which the psychiatrist is in. Consider it, and vow not to repeat that mistake - the mistake of thinking your opinion is more important or more valid, and using that to insult, abuse, threaten violence or use triggering words on someone, just because you "think they are wrong". I don't care what you believe. I don't care who you turn to for comfort or cosmic knowledge or eternal salvation. I want to help defend each of you against psychiatry; to dismantle psychiatry one psychiatrist at a time. But please, treat each other (and me) with respect and good manners. Abusive cussing at someone is NEVER helpful. Trying to make them feel bad because of religious or political beliefs or any cultural difference is never the route to peace or teamwork. Let's also keep conversations on topic. I'm requesting that this is more pro-actively addressed, with a genuine impartiality. Anything less than this is a social ugliness; a misery-creation activity. Nobody really wants that, except the psychs themselves. You all here, each one of you, deserve better from each other.
Stewart Cambridge Sometimes I will see a post or a comment here which is "reasonable" about psychiatry. By "reasonable", I mean such attitudes as:
- They're trying to help
- They do have some expertise
- It's pretty bad, but it's best we have so far
- I don't like my drugs, but I am <insert diagnosis here> (Thereby implying agreement with the diagnosis)
My personal opinion is that psychiatry is so evil and vile, that there is _never_ a situation where it should be used. I mean, I wouldn't even use it on wartime military enemies - it's too inhumane. (Shoot them on the battlefield or take them POW.)
How do I justify such an extreme view?
Because the entire philosophy is based upon telling another person what is wrong with them, and then forcing "treatment" upon them.
When a psychiatrist is being arrogant, that's exactly what he has been trained to do - to believe that he is right and that it is his job to identify the wrongness of the other.
The bedrock philosophy precludes humility, listening or learning from the get-go.
Just one example:
I once made a detailed study of the forms and training procedures recommended & used when faced with a new "patient". These forms & procedures actually came from the Royal Society of Medicine (not even the RCPsych)
The procedure was kind of a checklist or what to ask or inspect about the patient, when deciding what "illness" they have, and whether to section them or not. It was kind of a flow-chart. "If they say X, go to step 7." That kind of thing.
NOWHERE on the forms, and NOWHERE in the procedure was there ANY hint that the person was NOT ill.
There was no, "After you check X and Y, and test for Z, this means they are not ill. Let them go."
It doesn't matter who you are. If you end up on that form, on that procedure, you are PRESUMED ILL from the onset. There is no "He's not ill" scenario.
The decision that you are ill, is a decision made before they even start the forms. The forms are merely to decide _which_ "illness" you have.
Therefore, the decision that you are ill, is UNDOCUMENTED.
Because in psychiatry, _everyone_ is "mentally ill".
And that's why it is evil.
Sue Barnett About 2 or 3 weeks ago I posted that I had emailed my MP, Anna Soubry, to ask about the UN ruling that forced psychiatric treatment is torture. I just thought I would update you and let you know that so far I have received no response. I'm wondering if I can complain to anyone, does anyone know? Thanks. callto: sue.barnett11 Skype
Sue Cunliffe I am on Radio Hereford and Worcester tomorrow morning at 6,7 7.38 and 8 am( prerecorded). Midlands Today are filming me on Tuesday. To all those that know me I had electroconvulsive therapy in 2004 and 2005. I like many others were given " misinformed" consent and sadly many of us suffered severe, permanent brain damage. I see myself as lucky survivor because of the support that I received. Many of the survivors have not been as lucky.
I am trying to bring the controversy of ECT to an end. There are people who feel that ECT saved theirs lives, I will not dispute that fact. What I do know is that ECT research has been doctored to make it look more effective than it is, and to look safer than it is. I have evidence of this. Even the Royal College of Psychiatrists information sheet is written in a way to bias towards ECT. The machines have never been tested. I am asking for an independent enquiry into ECT that includes a review of patients notes. None of us have ever received an apology. All brain injured patients should get support to learn to live with their brain damage. ECT machines should be rigorously tested in line with all medical procedures in the UK. All existing research should be reassessed and an accurate risk benefit made. If needed, more research should be done. In that way if ECT continues patients can truly sign an informed consent. I also want each patient having ECT to be constantly monitored by a psychologist. I am asking that a support website is created for those in search of information and support. In 2000 the Guardian ran an article about Pat Butterworth who along with 600 patients was trying to sue her psychiatrist. Nothing happened. When in our society was it OK to ignore such side effects? Only when we are psychiatric patients? Following on from these programs it seems hopeful that a full length documentary will be commissioned.
I was a doctor but can't work. Using my knowledge to improve mental health care is a more than worthy challenge. To use my skills in such a way and hopefully bring change will give my loss some meaning. Thanks for reading this.
Sue Helen Oakley I had O.C.D., self-harm, very severe depression; anorexia, bulimia; many phobias; 4 suicide attempts. I also had a baby. First suicide attempt when she was 15 months.
Docs then became 'aware', & prescribed Diazepam. As it causes depression, it was contraindicated. That was 1977.
In 1980, I was forcibly withdrawn from it. Torture and then some. I said I had withdrawal symptoms. They said it wasn't addictive, & prescribed a host of anti-psychotics, including Nardil, though my records say I've never been psychotic.
Back on Diazepam throughout my second pregnancy. Daughter's heart stopped at birth. She had numerous behacioural problems, after a very quiet, limp babyhood.
I was again thrown into a withdrawal hell.
In 1995, I was on 4 mg daily, & ready to finish coming off slowly. I was then given an antibiotic called Doxycycline. It threw me into cold-turkey withdrawal, & 3 years of hell followed. In the end I told my doc I'd had enough. Back onto 20 mg daily.
Spontaneous (no cause) withdrawal 2001. 40 mg. Again 2006. 60 mg. That's about it, except to say I'd have been better off on illegal drugs. tter spent elsewhere.
SuperDelta000 Doesn't matter in any way shape or form if they are a affiliated with Scientology. What matters is they put out the correct information and that they help people who have been harmed by the cult of psychiatry. Psychiatry and psychology are 2 destructive pseudosciences that have no place in society.
Supernova808 @misspolo88 These video interviews were made at an international conference of psychiatrists. The film crew stopped and interviewed attendees as they were arriving or leaving the conference.
Susan Biddle It has been a long time since I was an involuntary inpatient. I started to wonder after recent conversations in this group how much the hell hole I was locked in had actually improved. Iooked up some recent reviews by employees online. Now I am angry and feel like people are still not safe there at all. More reviews of the center in comments. If this is how employees feel about the place, imagine how patients who can't leave feel!
Susan Barnett I have a mental health diagnosis. I am not saying I am mentally ill. I have a diagnosis which has legal and political power. As long as I have it people can do what they want to me, have done and do. Ignore, ridicule, abuse. I have to try to control myself under all that for fear of consequences at the hands of the corruption which has imposed it on me. In some people that knowledge brings out real sadism or they think it's a game, fun, a harmless pastime they can get away with. For me, it is torture and I think these people are terrorists.
In Victorian times it used to be a regular and legal Sunday activity for people to go to the asylums and laugh at the patients. I get so low sometimes that I think, as someone with my particular Christian background, that that was something Ram Dass might have called fierce grace, as he did when he first had his stroke. He thought his guru had given it to him for his spiritual betterment. In the same way I sometimes think that was then, and is now, an opportunity given by God to people who are out of step and shouldn't be to come back to right mindedness and right speech and right living. To ME, for instance. And I keep refusing. And I think that makes me a bad person. So much shame attached to that, and embarrassment, along with the fear and anger and hopelessness and grief at a life lost. Or stolen, whatever your view or mine at any given time.
I believe in all this I am no different from any other unwilling carrier of a diagnosis like mine. Nottingham Britannia https://twitter.com/ASueBarnett https://suebarnett.wordpress.com/ sue.barnett11 (Skype)
Susan Beyer 48 years ago on September 15,1967 my Father drowned while fishing with friends. He was only 39 years old. I was 15 and the 2nd oldest of Eight children. His body was found down river 48 years ago today.
Within the next 1 1/2 years I attempted suicide twice ( in a two month period). No one ever asked me why? Instead they admitted me to an inpatient Psych ward and gave me 15 rounds of ECT and some heavy unknown drugs . In 6 weeks I had gained 30 pounds and lost my past, including almost all memories of my Father, except the day he died. My emotional pain was acutely intact.
I called the next few years The Black Years. I made inner vows that no one will ever know again what I was really feeling. Needless to say, relationships were really hard for me. I just wanted to share with you all, because you understand that the last thing a grieving teenage girl needed was ECT. I have never recovered what I lost in those six weeks that summer of '69. But listening to your stories have helped me a lot. Thank you for being there.
