More horse manure from the Mental Health Industry. Stay away from mind drugs and stay away from members of the Mental Health Industry.

There is no science to the mental health industry. No medical model. NO evidence based medicine. No test for chemical imbalance of the brain to which the APA admitted to the falsehood in 2004. The industry is based on hearsay and is political.

Inside the Battle to Define Mental Illness

Every so often Al Frances says something that seems to surprise even him. Just now, for instance, in the predawn darkness of his comfortable, rambling home in Carmel, Califo4535rnia, he has broken off his exercise routine to declare that “there is no definition of a mental disorder. It’s bullshit. I mean, you just can’t define it.” Then an odd, reflective look crosses his face, as if he’s taking in the strangeness of this scene: Allen Frances, lead editor of the fourth edition of the American Psychiatric Associations Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (universally known as the DSM-IV), the guy who wrote the book on mental illness, confessing that “these concepts are virtually impossible to define precisely with bright lines at the boundaries.” For the first time in two days, the conversation comes to an awkward halt.

There are no genetic tests, no brain scans, blood tests, chemical imbalance tests or X-rays that can scientifically/medically prove that any psychiatric disorder is a medical condition.

Someone that commits suicides or mass murder is a person that has gone to a member of the mental health industry and used mind drugs at anytime in their life.

The environmental area the person resides and the contamination of the underground water for bathing and drinking with the discharge of the chemicals from the pharmaceutical especially mind drugs and heart medication like Statin drugs that cause memory loss is a problem IMO.

Mind drugs by the non science mental Health industry has caused alteration to the personalities of people including children that has political intent and has caused problems to the health and welfare of the societies and interfered in the judiciary of this and other nations with intent to create a New World Order.

The push to do away with underground individual water well for a centralized water treatment facility should be noted.

Drinking and bathing waters are ideal to add chemicals (drugs) to a water source for power and political control including for some health benefits. Centralized distribution points for the population are the best means of water control and quality checks. Water plant are less expensive and intrusive then the saturating of the society in medication for a given area by pills and human waste and discharge recycling. The cause and effects with a water plant for different geographic areas are easier to maintain for voting districts which are subject to change each year..

Haven't you noticed how grumpy they are? There's even a movie, yes?

They are seriously depressed because after all the extra benefits they have received they did not get to be p or vp of the country to rule the world..
