Mental health horse manure. The attack on the elderly night worker for 40 years who doesn't sleep to the standard sleep hours of the mental health workers DMS (when retired )doesn't mean he is going to commit suicide...lol

Being a Mental Health worker considering the disrespect for profession and the fear of retaliation by those who love ones have been harmed or died by psychiatric drugs and considering psychotherapy with behavioral modification in the creation of wrong doing and lets not forget the wifes or husbands of mental Health workers who manipulated their marital bliss into control for their own satisfaction would seem to me to be the most likely to commit suicide.

6 ways Big Pharma manipulates consumers

Insomnia has been a goldmine to Big Pharma. To goose the insomnia market, Pharma has created subcategories of insomnia — chronic, acute, transient, initial, delayed-onset and middle-of-the-night as well as early-morning wakening non-restful sleep. Your insomnia is as unique as you are! It is also no coincidence that “wakefulness” medications cause insomnia and insomnia drugs, because of their hangover, create a market for wakefulness drugs.

Now Pharma is announcing that insomnia is actually a “risk” factor for depression and “that treating insomnia can help treat depression.” The American Psychiatric Association’s new Diagnostic and Statistical Manual (DSM-5) due in May also newly pathologizes sleep. Considered the Bible of psychiatric drug treatments that end up being funded by insurers, the latest DSM has revised the way insomnia is diagnosed and classified.“If sleep disturbance is persistent and impairs daytime functioning, then it should be recognized and treated,” write authors in a paper in the December issue of the Journal of Clinical Psychiatry.

Given the crimes and atrocities of the mental health industry over the years especially from the Nursery, day school of tots to the public school system, one can see by the nick name of Jack Meoff on the listed posting the effects of money made in the mind drugging and fabricating of mental health diagnoses (to order) on the weird O"s and losers of California.

They want mourning to be considered a mental illness too, so you better not mourn the loss of a friend or pet.
