"If you talk to God, you are praying; If God talks to you, you have schizophrenia. If the dead talk to you, you are a spiritualist; If you talk to the dead, you are a schizophrenic."

"...They must never forget that school personnel and child psychiatrists and psychologists are government agents. Their job is to control children, not to care for their health or well-being."

prof. emeritus univ. new york, syracuse
member of american psychiatric association

Transcript of an excerpt from BBC2 "The Trap", broadcast 11th March 2007

(Laing speaking to someone - Note Laing's Scottish accent!)
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/R._D._Laing

Commentator - "Laing was now a celebrity in America and was one of the leaders of what was called the 'Anti-psychiatry movement'.
Psychiatry, Laing said, was a fake science used as a system of political control to shore up a violent collapsing society. Its categories of madness and sanity had no reality. Madness was simply a convenient label used to lock away those who wanted to break free."

"Hundreds of young psychiatrists came to Laing's talks and one of them was inspired and decided to find a way of testing whether what Laing said was true or not. Could psychiatrists in America distinguish between madness and sanity?"
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rosenhan_experiment

"He was called David Rosenhan and he devised a dramatic experiment. He assembled 8 people, including himself, none of whom had ever had any psychiatric problems.

Each person was sent across the country to a specific mental hospital. At an agreed time, they all presented themselves at their hospital and told the psychiatrist on duty they were hearing a voice in their head that said the word "Thud". That was the only lie they should tell otherwise they were to behave and respond completely normally."

Question - "and then what happened?"

David Rosenhan - "They were all diagnosed as insane and admitted to the hospital."

Question - "All of them?"

David Rosenhan - "All of them."

Question - "And were any of them insane?"

David Rosenhan - "No. There was nobody who could have judged these people as insane. ... but I told friends, I told my family, I get out when I get out; that's all. Be there for a couple of days and then I get out. Nobody knew I would be there for 2 months!"

Commentator - "Once admitted, all 8 fake patients acted completely normally yet the hospitals refused to release them and diagnosed 7 as suffering from schizophrenia and one from bipolar disorder. They were all given powerful psychotropic drugs.

They found there was nothing they could do to convince the doctors they were sane and it quickly became clear that the only way out would be to agree that they were insane and then pretend to be getting better.

David Rosenhan - "The only way out was to point out that they're correct. They said I was insane, I am insane, but I am getting better. That was an affirmation of their view of me."

Commentator - "When Rosenhan finally got out and reported the experiment, there was an uproar. He was accused of trickery and deceit and one major hospital challenged him to send some more fakes to him, guaranteeing that they would spot them this time.

Rosenhan agreed and after a month, the hospital proudly announced that they had discovered 41 fakes. Rosenhan then revealed that he had sent no-one to the hospital.

The effect of The Thud Experiment was a disaster for American psychiatry. It destroyed the idea that they were a privileged elite with specialist knowledge.

But those in charge realised that psychiatry could not just give up. Another way had to be found of understanding and managing people's inner feelings in modern society."

Enough marketing - get the facts - https://www.cchrint.org/psychiatric-disorders/

Great post. This is an important subject that just gets no air time in the mainstain (thanks Change Da Channel) media.

The flip side of this is how little we care to know what effects food has on our mental well being. The mind is like any other part of the body. If you give it the wrong nutrition it does not work so well. I learned this dramatically with my son. After taking a friends advice and seeing a naturopath. The change in his behavior was astounding and has changed my life and my views on "conventional" wisdom forever.
Yes i'll admit it.... I think Max Keiser is a LEGEND

Nice one mate! Sickman fraud has a lot to answer for! There is no model of normalacy at the heart of psychiatry so all diagnosis is speculative and or subjective and has long been used to surpress alternative views of the World.

In a way, there is. Scientology uses these fringe scientists as a way to target people who are mentally vulnerable. They show these videos and convince people that their problems aren't treatable by conventional means, then position themselves as the "authority on the brain".

Here's the basic problem. While we can say that most mental illnesses are not diseases, we can't say that they are myths...or that it's all a fraud as the people in these videos suggest. And, while certainly medications are over prescribed, that doesn't mean that pharma companies are defrauding everyone for profit. The effectiveness of medications in certain cases is a strong argument for their continued use - the failure is in the overuse. Some drugs work for some patients, that's a fact. If you take a pill and it fixes the problem, doesn't that mean a problem did exist? Even if the cause wasn't fully understood? That it wasn't just a fraud?

Also, the people in the video would have you believe that psychiatry is conducted fundamentally different from other medicine, but that's not true. The vast majority of illness is diagnosed the same way...it's a group of symptoms that the medical profession agrees constitute an illness. Just like in psychiatry, sometimes they're wrong...does that mean that all medicine is also fraud? Of course not.

Dr. Baughman thinks that calling mental illness biological, "absent any scientific proof, is to deceive the public." Meaning that without understanding the biology of an illness, any attempt to treat it is fraud. But most diseases are successfully treated before the cause and biology are known - well-established things like diabetes (still not fully understood but we treat it anyway), ulcers, impotence, migraines, etc.

The point is that the people in these videos go too far in their criticism - while accusing psychiatrists of going too far in their treatment.
