New book "Mind Fixers" trashes psychiatry

The entire title is "Mind Fixers: Psychiatry’s Troubled Search for the Biology of Mental Illness." by Anne Harrington. The author gets it. I hope people read it. They were talking about it today on NPR. Here's a review in Atlantic:

it’s a tale of promising roads that turned out to be dead ends, of treatments that seemed miraculous in their day but barbaric in retrospect, of ...

Psychiatrist Blames Bad Gene Pool - Drugging of Foster kids

On October 4, 2004 in a Texas Committee hearing on Psychotropic Drugs and Foster Care Children, human and children rights advocates were stunned when psychiatrist, Joe Burkett, informed the committee that one of the main reasons so many foster kids need to be on psychotropic drugs is “they are very sick, from a Bad Gene pool”. Another psychiatrist, Dr.Sargent, re-emphasized how very sick these kids are, and how these children's brains are wired differently, requiring ...

Perversion in psychiatry

I've been told by several psychiatrists that 'good psychiatrists' don't take sexual abuse seriously because most reports are actually by consenting 'victims' who lied out of cultural shame when they were mad at their perpetrators due to jealousy. For instance, some say most pedophiles are 'wonderful people', unfairly persecuted, who are very 'loving' and that the movies showing children looking afraid when they're being molested or seduced by an adult are inaccurate because the children ...

Young people on amphetamines have twice the psychosis risk

Title says it all:


https://www.cnn.com/2019/03/20/health/a ... index.html


Yes I know its CNN, but not the study itself.

Small risk here, small risk there, one drug this another that and soon your odds become high. Every single psychiatric drug or treatment has a hidden iatrogenic disease within it.

The idea that somehow, someday they will "find the right meds" is ...

My best friend got locked up in a psych ward

I feel guilty about it for a lot of reasons. We met each other in group therapy back when we were in high school and we've kept in touch ever since, and he "gets" me and I "get" him, which makes it so much easier to let my guard down around him and open up to him and vice versa. He was diagnosed schizoaffective bipolar subtype and I can always tell when he is about ...
