What is children's mental health care? - Child in Mind - Boston.com
Patricia Wen's front page story Children's Access to Mental Health Care is Growing , in which she describes the "co-location" of mental health care services in pediatric practices, brought me back to the summer of 2011 when I attended a meeting of a working group of the Massachusetts Chapter of the American Academy of
Pediatrics The task of ... (more)

pediatric practices....Throw the mental Health Industry out with the garbage and other political filth looking for a quick buck. The Industry has no science, no medical model, no evidence based medicine and there is no test for chemical imbalance. The industry is corrupted. Get the industry and mind drugs away from our children at any cost.

APA Admits there is no test for "chemical imbalance"
American Psychiatric Association admitted it lied to the American Public
29 September 2003 Issue 61
This week, a few representative excerpts from an article that I discovered on my internet travels only a matter of days ago, concerning the area in which biopsychiatry has, it seems to me, most comprehensively misled the world at large.
Please go to the website linked to below the excerpts and read the complete article. Then you will not be bamboozled should a doctor, teacher, journalist, ad man, politician, family member, friend, some bloke in your local pub, or whoever, start waffling on at you about 'mental illness' being caused by 'chemical imbalances' in the brain. You will know better!
There Are No "Chemical Imbalances"
"The hypothetical disturbances of neurochemical function that are said to underlie "mental illness" are just that: hypothetical. No experiment has ever shown that anyone has an "imbalance" of any neurotransmitters or any other brain chemicals. Nor could any conceivable experiment demonstrate the existence of a "chemical imbalance," simply because no one, least of all the biopsychiatrists, has the slightest idea what a proper and healthy chemical "balance" would look like."
"...the views and beliefs of biopsychiatry have nothing to do with the answers to scientific questions in any case: the hunt for biological "causes" of "mental illness" is an entirely fallacious enterprise in the first place; the non- existence of data to support its assertions is quite beside the point."
"The latest edition of one pharmacology text has this to say about the status of depression as a disease: "Despite extensive efforts, attempts to document the metabolic changes in human subjects predicted by these [biological] hypotheses have not, on balance, provided consistent or compelling corroboration." This is a long-winded way of admitting that not even a scrap of evidence supports the idea that depression results from a "chemical imbalance." Yet patients are told every day - by their doctors, by the media, and by drug company advertising - that it is a proven scientific fact that depression has a known biochemical origin. It follows directly that millions of Americans are being lied to by their doctors; and people surely can't give informed consent for drug treatment when what they're being "informed" by is a fraud.... To sum up: there is no evidence whatsoever to support the view that "mental illness" is biochemical in origin; in other words, things like "Unipolar Disorder" and "Attention Deficit Disorder" simply do not exist."

Without a test for chemical imbalance the mental health, the "psychiatric diagnosis" is limited in the ancillary tests of medicine like an EKG, EEG, blood work or other tests in the diagnoses of a patient. They aren't really needed in Psychiatry.
I think you can see, and probably know, as a student, that the psychiatric diagnosis is made on the basis of behavior or spoken words or the hearsay from a neighbor, friend, estranged husband/wife who may very well be making a false allegation or creating a position in a court of law for their advantage. I am sure that Medicare or Disability and insurances play a large part in the diagnoses. Basically you are making a diagnoses on the physiological differences between the so called "mentally ill" and the "normal" without knowing what a proper and healthy chemical "balance" look like?" There is no test.
If we respect metabolic changes based on daily dietary habits, weight gain / loss , terms of the survival of the organisms as a person age along with physical conditioning, physical illness, electrolyte level, gender differences , body temperature, I don't see where the Mental Health and Counseling Industry could conform to any consistency in data with consideration to the above to state a person has a mental disease or illness based on chemical imbalance. Beside that, the mental health psychiatric diagnoses isn't even part of standard medical procedure known as the medical model in which all doctors are trained and is the only branch of medicine operating completely on political decisions.
So, on the basis of a 10 minute exchange between doctor & patient, a diagnosis of atypical schizophrenia (others) can be made and what is disturbing is that with the aid of a 2nd physician, the patient can be involuntarily hospitalized without any due process of law.. There is no other branch of medicine that permits this sort of thing.
If an orthopedic surgeon operated on a patient without the aid of an X-ray, he would be working at the car wash the next day.

As I stated, I believe the practice of medicine is predicated on something called the "medical model" which doctors learn in medical school and has a set of procedures by which they practice medicine. Psychiatry, Psychologist, psychotherapist" (psycho - the - rapist) and the 101 other titles of importance, if any, in the field of psychiatry / psychology I lump into one broad category: "The mental health worker" for convenience.
To me, Psychiatry is misplaced in academia and belongs in social medicine. Psychology should be part of anthropology and brains are topics of biology.
Psychiatrist mainly guess as to psychotropic drugs used on many of the made to order mental disease which were voted on by the hand raising exercises of the American Psychiatric Association members, yearly, and listed in the DSM. I think you can see, Psychiatry with it inventive ideology stemming from "phrenology" to electro shock therapy is dealing into the dark science much like one that would practice voodoo or witchcraft or play a game, with a person mind, of Tarot cards.
A quote of Psychotherapy for you:
“Psychotherapy may be known in the future as the greatest hoax of the twentieth century.” Dr. Lawrence LeShan, former president of the Association for Humanistic Psychology
As for psychiatrists diagnosing an illness predicated on something like pain & suffering or behavior or conduct is absurd to me and I would discount the diagnoses as much as I would distrust their theories of physical or chemical lobotomies or shock treatment.

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

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.

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.

The dirty deal of the Amino Acid Tryptophan
The MKULTRA project was a CIA initiative to control the thought and actions of people and was tested on unsuspecting American and Canadians during the 1950-1970. It is still happening today using psychotropic, anti-depressant, anti-psychotic and Statin drugs and involves children.
Bogus diagnoses by the mental Health Industry to which there is no science, no medical model, no evidence based medicine and no test for chemical balance is the political means of controlling the population by mind drugs, psychotherapy and Electro Shock Therapy and represents the greatest threat to any political structure including a Constitutional country like the USA. It is now happening on a Worldwide basis.
MKULTRA was followed up by the Hippie generation, then the controlling of the school system and eroding of parental authority (1989 -90). The limiting of the essential amino acid Tryptophan in the same time frame as Prozac entered the market place (1989).
This is the basis for the corruption of the Mental health / Pharmaceutical industry in the societies today using Pharmaceutical mind drugs.

You really want the scumbags and derelicts of mental health around your child?
#13 Mar 24, 2013
Its how Pharma double-dips, first it damages children with vaccines causing ASD'S and more, then they have so-called treatments for the vaccine injury that displays itself as autism, ADHD and more. Treatments for some are displayed in homicidal and suicidal behaviors. In my opinion Adam Lanza and Jeremy Holmes are prime examples.
#14 Mar 25, 2013
Lots of examples some are not reported with families attempting to save their child from police reports and more drug torture by the mental health industry. This doesn't include the military which has its thousands of members in harms way with the mind drugging , violence and murder too
Death, violence, erratic behavior and the suicide by mind drugs
Have a good day
#15 Mar 25, 2013
Children in military families have been devastated by vaccine injury. Search that.
