Bad idea for any society. The more prescription writers the more deaths and instability in the society.. The profits will be the issuance for mind drugs.

The industries of psychology and psychiatry lumped together under the title of Mental Health are false science and brain washing industries that are a threat to the health and welfare of the societies.

All persons should protect the interest of a child, friend or neighbor against the no science of the mental Health industry and the mind drugging or therapy offered. Get rid of the politicians supporting these industries and the school board member having mental Health degrees.

Apparently there is limited knowledge to the number of deaths by mind drugs in Illinois.

No science to psychiatry. No medical model. No evidence based medicine. No test for chemical imbalance of the brain. The Mental Health Industry is plagued with false and made to order diagnoses leading to prescribed mind drugs.

It is my understanding that we have politicians on the take and that the lobbyist are hanging around the State politicians like flies on manure and supporting this proposal knowing and being fully aware of the number of deaths caused by the pharmaceutical drugs and falsehood of the Mental Health Industry.

The needs of psychologist administering mind drugs :

There is no science and there has never been a cure for mental illness.

There is no medical model. No evidence based medicine and the Mental Health / Pharmaceutical industry lied about Chemical imbalance to drug the population. There is no imaging (MRI) to declare a defective brain from a normal brain.

The Mental Health Industry is political and based on hearsay.

People will fall for just about anything...

New York - A media exhibit featuring a campaign for a fake drug to treat a fictitious illness is causing a stir because some people think the illness is real.

Australian artist Justine Cooper created the marketing campaign for a non-existent drug called Havidol for Dysphoric Social Attention Consumption Deficit Anxiety Disorder (DSACDAD), which she also invented.

But the multi-media exhibit at the Daneyal Mahmood Gallery in New York, which includes a website, mock television and print advertisements and billboards is so convincing people think it is authentic.

"People have walked into the gallery and thought it was real," Mahmood said in an interview.

'Subtle kind of parody' "They didn't get the fact that this was a parody or satire."

But Mahmood said it really took off over the Internet. In the first few days after the website ( www.havidol.com ) went up, it had 5 000 hits. The last time he checked it had reached a quarter of a million.

"The thing that amazes me is that it has been folded into real websites for panic and anxiety disorder. It's been folded into a website for depression. It's been folded into hundreds of art blogs," he added.

The parody is in response to the tactics used by the drug industry to sell their wares to the public. Consumer advertising for prescription medications, which are a staple of television advertising in the United States, was legalised in the country in 1997.

Cooper said she intended the exhibit to be subtle.

"The drug ads themselves are sometimes so comedic. I couldn't be outrageously spoofy so I really wanted it to be a more subtle kind of parody that draws you in, makes you want this thing and then makes you wonder why you want it and maybe where you can get it," she added.

Mahmood said that in addition to generating interest among the artsy crowd, doctors and medical students have been asking about the exhibit.

"I think people identify with the condition," he said.

The number of people who were professional, no less, that started recommending the bogus drug to treat all types of hyped up mental illnesses is amazing.

Here's the website:

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.

get rid of governors in each state with the proposal to license psychologist to prescribe and get rid of those politicians on the take from the pharmaceutical and mental health industry.

Don't overlook the aspect of mind drugging and the intention of creating the mental health court.

Here is the agenda of the Mental Health in the take over of the Judiciary Branch of government (by state) on the problem the industry caused in the USA.(Drug America) This is a similar takeover to what happen in the Public School System.

The (APA) DSM-V is the future version of the Mein Kampf.

Bombs and bullets will be replaced with mind drugs and psychotherapy (false memory) in future generations.

That's certainly what Aldus Huxley predicted with his fictional Soma and it came true

Paid to support a prescriptions for pharmaceutical mind drugs defeats the diagnosis of a patient.
