No science to the mental health industry. no medical model. no evidence based medicine. no test for chemical imbalance of the brain. The mental health industry (APA) lied about having a test for chemical imbalance and admitted the falsehood to mind drugging the population. The mental health diagnoses are base on hearsay and are political. The industry is a danger to the health and welfare of the society and is being used in a Republican coup detat for the new world order.

Why your kid is drugged in school

How it works:

The State Department of Education gets monies from the Federal Government (Disability) under a program called "IDEA" for each child diagnosed with a disability. A disability could be ADD/ADHD, Bi-polar disorder, Depression or any of the other mental diagnoses.

Who profits: The State Department of Education, the mental health and counseling Industry, the Pharmaceutical company and the money that is kicked back by lobbyists for politicians special interest and of course the legal profession.

All this at the cost of your child's Health and welfare.

Psychiatric Diagnosis: Too Little Science, Too Many Conflicts of Interest [i]

Paula J. Caplan, Ph.D.

Harvard University

Snip:

The Concerns

There is a lot of pain and suffering in the world, and it is tempting to believe that the mental health community knows how to help. It is widely believed, both by mental health professionals and the general population, that if only a person gets the right psychiatric diagnosis, the therapist will know what kind of measures will be the most helpful. Unfortunately, that is not usually the case, and getting a psychiatric diagnosis can often create more problems than it solves, including a lifetime of being labeled, difficulties with obtaining affordable (or any) health insurance (due to now having a pre-existing condition), loss of employment, loss of child custody, the overlooking of physical illnesses and injuries because of everything being attributed to psychological factors, and the loss of the right to make decisions about one’s medical and legal affairs. The creation and use of psychiatric diagnosis, unlike, for instance, psychiatric drugs, is not overseen by any regulatory body, and rarely does anyone raise the question of what role the assignment of a psychiatric label has played in creating problems for individuals.[ii]

The Problematic History

These serious limitations have not prevented the authors of the American Psychiatric Association’s (APA) Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM), sometimes known as “the therapist’s Bible,” from making expansive claims about their knowledge and authority and wielding enormous power to decide who will and will not be called mentally ill and what the varieties of alleged mental illness will be. The DSM’s current edition is called DSM-IV-TR, and it was preceded by the original DSM (in 1952), then DSM-II (1968), DSM-III (1980), DSM-III-R (Third Edition Revised)(1987), DSM-IV (1994), and DSM-IV-TR (2000). The DSM-V is currently in preparation and slated for 2013 publication. Each time a new edition appears, the media ask whichever psychiatrist is the lead editor why a new edition was necessary, and like clockwork, each editor replies that it was because the previous edition really wasn’t scientific (Caplan, 1995). And each time a new edition appears, it contains many more categories than does the previous one. For instance, DSM-III-R contained 297 categories, and DSM-IV contained 374 (Caplan, 1995).

I served as an advisor to two of the DSM-IV committees, before resigning due to serious concerns after witnessing how fast and loose they play with the scientific research related to diagnosis (Caplan, 1995). The DSM is widely used, not only in the mental health system, but also in general medical practice, in schools, and in the courts. I have been involved since 1985 in trying to alert both therapists and the public to the manual’s unscientific nature and the dangers that believing in its objectivity poses. Since then, I have watched with interest a national trend toward gradually increasing openness to the idea that psychiatric diagnosis (A)is largely unscientific,(B)is highly subjective and political, and (C)can cause untold harm, ranging from the patients’ lowered self-confidence to loss of custody of children to loss of health insurance (because any psychiatric label can be considered evidence of a pre-existing condition) to loss of the right to make decisions about their medical and legal affairs.

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, California, 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 Association’s 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.

Pasted from < http://www.wired.com/magazine/2010/12/ff_dsmv... ;

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.

Historic Precedent

In the momentous article "Medical Science Under Dictator-ship," Dr. Leo Alexander, the chief U.S. medical consultant at the Nuremberg War Crimes Trials, examined "the process by which the German medical profession became a willing and unquestioning collaborator with the Nazis." He noted the early changes in medical attitudes that predisposed German physicians to first collect data on their patients to conduct what today we call "cost-effective analysis," and then to use the latter information as a vehicle to commit medical genocide under the auspices of the totalitarianism of National Socialism. Dr. Alexander warns us that "from small beginnings" the values of an entire society may be subverted, leading to the horrors of a police state. The "small beginnings" in Nazi Germany that Dr. Alexander referred to first led the physicians to collect data from their patients and then violate their patients' privacy and medical record confidentiality by supplying the information to the state.(6) Organizations with humanitarian-sounding names were set up in Nazi Germany to institute "health" programs, under deceptive, euphemistic terms. For example, questionnaires collected by a "Realm's Work Committee of Institutions for Cure and Care" gathered and reported information on patients who had been ill five years or more and who were unable to work. "On the basis of name, race, marital status, nationality, next of kin, whether regularly visited and by whom, who bore financial responsibility, and so forth," decisions were ultimately made for the patient euthanasia program heralded by the Nazi government for the good of the state and the "health of the nation." The first steps taken toward barbarism were the result of the physicians' willingness to participate in patient data collection and the violation of medical privacy. "Corrosion," as Dr. Alexander wrote, "begins in microscopic proportions." German physicians were, more than any other profession, heavily represented in the Nazi Party, which they joined in droves. German psychiatrists were no exception, and they also enthusiastically supported Nazi Germany's gun control laws of 1938 that disarmed the civilian population and left a monopoly of force in the hands of the German military and the SS. The rest, as we say, is history.

AMA Becomes Political

As to the commitment of the AMA to weakening medical privacy and individual-based ethics in favor of population-based ethics and achieve a partnership with government, there is no longer any doubt.(7,8) In the case of the American Psychiatric Association, one only has to peruse its position statement on homicide prevention and gun control promulgated by its leadership as early as 1993: "In view of the need to reinforce individual and group sanctions against the use of violence as a social instrument, behavioral mode, or adaptorional [sic] pattern, as psychiatrists have done with drug abuse, suicidal actions, and antisocial behavior, the American Psychiatric Association recommends that strong controls be placed on the availability of all types of firearms to private citizens."(9) Why would the AMA and organized medicine become involved in this politically expedient but potentially explosive issue of gun control and condone the systematic violation of the privacy of vulnerable patients?

Electronic Medical Records

Don't overlook that Mental Health evaluations are part of the Electronic Health Records (EHR) in the USA and Electronic Patient Record (EPR) in Europe and Austrelia and that represents a means of distribution among the political ill intent of the medical and psychological, policing / legal and Governmental agencies including educational systems worldwide for social control.

Even the "on the spot" evaluation and opinion of your demeanor and your "tip of the tongue statement" at the appointment of the local MD will reside in the records to which you will have limited or no access.

Your life could depend on these statements within the closed secretative medical organization during medical services including operations and drug prescriptions and if the doctor doesn't comply then he'll lose his hospital privilages and certainly a doctor without hospital suppport isn't going to be worth much in medicine.

Certainly the Medical Oath to do no harm has been violated in the past considering the number of deaths including mind drugging of the public and its most vunerable members, the elderly and the children.

It may be noteworthy to understand that the Electronic Records would align and create the unity of opinion for the psychological services that have no medical science and are based on hearsay for court proceedings and lawsuits and allow other persons (unknown) to read, make and to invade and influence opinions on a person without knowledge of that person direct. Lots of laughs around the water cooler in the DA's office or in chamber of the judicial judge or your local medical doctors office...

Of interest is the taxpayer funding of billions of dollars for this Republic Constitutional intrusion for power and control of the USA in the Republican New World Order.

continued...What I found out was beyond startling.. all the medication had warnings to not use together, some critical. And the side effects? Blurred vision, dizzy, anxiety, depression, desire for self harm, back and neck pain, brain fog, memory lapse, problems retrieving words she wanted to speak, extreme fear, suicidal thoughts, anger outburst, appetite depression, insomnia, nervousness….My heart sank, this medicine was making my child crazy…for these years on this medication during bouts of anxiety, she would cry and scream “Mom, what’s wrong with me…something is wrong with me”… So off to this Dr of wonder and demanded his help to wean her off this medication. This started 1 and half months ago..it’s been horrible to say the least, and his suggestion? More medication!! My daughter looked at him and said “Hell No”, no more, get me off.. One night recently, during an intense migraine which left her so nauseated she threw up all night long.. Riddled with fear, anger, and pain.. something just hit me and the next day I was back at research of reading stories of people who had problems going on the medication as well as what to expect coming off. One story I found dropped my heart a few more feet…all the feelings she’d had while she lay in bed for six weeks so sick, one week after starting topamax…everything she felt were side effects of the Topamax. EVERY SINGLE SYMPTON was a side effect of the topamax. I can’t seem to wrap my head around the fact that I continually called the psychiatrist during her stint in bed, before the wilderness episode. Not once did he acknowledge these were side effects of topamax. Nor did the pediatric neurologist, or the general practitioner, or the ophthalmologist…why??? Dr. prescribe drugs and don’t know the side effects.
My child yes, needed some help, probably just a good therapist, she did have things to deal with. Who doesn’t? But instead she lost part of her youth, for years felt she was crazy, not normal. My marriage has been ripped apart on an emotional rollercoaster with worry about her and how to help. My pocket book is empty…and now I’m just mad.
People we have a serious problem with Doctors and pharmaceuticals, we have learned at IIN why we are so sick, how we’ve been betrayed by our government. How healthy people don’t make money only sick ones. And the lack of knowledge Dr’s have about the medication they prescribe.
…outraged doesn’t come close to how I feel..
