Game changer: Linden Cameron shot by police

"He was experiencing a crisis because it was her first day back at work in almost a year and "he has bad separation anxiety", she said.

"I said, he's unarmed, he doesn't have anything, he just gets mad and he starts yelling and screaming," Ms Barton said. "He's a kid, he's trying to get attention, he doesn't know how to regulate."

"At a press conference, Sgt Horrocks said officers were called to a "violent psych ...

young man with movie-star looks emaciated by psych

Look how approx. 5 years of confinement and 'treatment' by psychiatrists has changed this young man Thomas Gilbert Jr. from handsome and virile to an ashen, gaunt zombie.
*mod edit*

In comparison, see how Cal Harris who was in prison for about 4 years fared just dandy and was obviously none the worse for wear.

JULY 15, 20205 AM
A 16-year-old boy being held at a Los Angeles County juvenile hall developed enlarged breasts after he was prescribed estrogen to treat a behavioral disorder, a move that baffled doctors who said the treatment defied medical logic, according to a lawsuit filed last month.

The teen, whose identity is being withheld because of his age, was diagnosed with "oppositional defiant disorder", or ODD, two days after he was arrested and housed ...

Anti-psych book.

Hi all,

This is my first visit to this forum and since graduating from university with a degree in psychiatry, have often contemplated creating a book.

I wonder if any users, could provide me any guidance with the possibility of having such a book published?

I left Psychiatry 4 years ago and this was due to my conflicting beliefs around the system and how productive it was and terms of producing the best outcomes.

I've ...

Could Modern Psychiatry Be Thought of As A Medical Cult

Having been a longterm patient due to experiencing distressing and at the time unexplained symptoms like thought broadcasting, hearing voices, and having the unnerving feeling of being watched stalked.

I in my mid-twenties flipped out and become a patient for the second time, as before I was under the care due to an unrelated health condition.

Anyway, having what most voice hearer's experience prior to being diagnosed as having Schizophrenia, I took Psychiatry at face ...

"Traumagenic Neurodevelopmental Model of Psychosis"

I wanted to post the following PDF download link because I thought people here might find it interesting.

Need Advice

So long story short I believe in anti-psych and have been between different meds for the past 5 years. This all started when I was first diagnosed with psychosis and placed on Invega shots. This is the worst chemical lobotomy anyone can go through as can be seen from many testimonies. I came off this medication eventually but was later on placed on Latuda because my symptoms came back. I was forced to take risperidone ...

Environmental causes of OCD

OCD can be caused or worsened by multiple environmental factors.

While long term studies on stimulants such as ADHD drugs find they cause ...

The increased death rate from Psychotropic drugs

"Antidepressants" increase your death rate by a third or 33%. SSRI's the most used "antidepressants" increase your death rate by 49%. For comparisons sake this increase in death rates is similar to if you were addicted to alcohol.
