No science to the mental health industry. No medical model. No evidence based medicine. No test for chemical imbalance. The industry is political and based on hearsay. No one has ever been cured by seeking help from the mental health industry. The industry is a danger to the health and welfare of the public.

Lets try it on the doctor first,

When I was in the hospital the did ECT on this girl who was my friend.

Nothing was realy wrong with her, she just hated that hospital. Her focus was to leave, go home, nothing else. She did not ask for any treatment and would have refused ECT if informed of risk benefit.

It was the same doctor whos reckless perscribing lead to me being in the hospital.

This girl returned from ECT with this perma smile stuck on her face but zombie like at the same time.

Psychiatry is not only fraud, it evil.

What that doctor did to that girl was EVIL to make a buck.

I hope he burns in hell.
