As the crimes and atrocities against the American public including its children continue by the mental health industry the exposure can only be obtained by the medical records as to the toxic and mind alternating medication and the therapy a victim is placed or forced under

I maintain my right not to have any psychiatric evaluation or diagnosis based upon the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM) as such diagnoses are unreliable.

According to Allen Frances, who was chairman of the fourth edition of DSM,“There are no objective tests in psychiatry—no X-ray, laboratory, or exam finding that says definitely that someone does or does not have a mental disorder.”(“Psychiatric Fads and Overdiagnosis,” Psychology Today, 2 June 2010.)

Additionally, the DSM system is not scientific. It’s own editors state that “there is no assumption that each category of mental disorder is a completely discrete entity with absolute boundaries dividing it from other mental disorders or from no mental disorder.”(DSM-IV, pg. xxii)

Such codes and descriptions should not be entered into my medical records as this unreliable and unscientific information will remain in my records and may wrongly influence any future medical treatment I might receive.

No science to the mental health industry. No medical model. No medical evidence based medicine No test for brain chemistry or Imagining to determine a defective brain. The industry is based on hearsay and is political.
