By educating yourself with the facts about psychiatry, you will have the information you need to never become a victim of this vicious pseudo-science. Presented here are twenty CCHR publications detailing the harmful effects of psychiatry—from their destruction of artistic creativity to their blatant attacks on entire generations of children.
Protect yourself with the truth. Find out what psychiatrists don’t want you to know.
The psychiatric profession purports to be the sole arbiter on the subject of mental health and “diseases” of the mind. The facts, however, demonstrate otherwise:
1. PSYCHIATRIC “DISORDERS” ARE NOT MEDICAL DISEASES.
In medicine, strict criteria exist for calling a condition a disease: a predictable group of symptoms and the cause of the symptoms or an understanding of their physiology (function) must be proven and established. Chills and fever are symptoms. Malaria and typhoid are diseases. Diseases are proven to exist by objective evidence and physical tests. Yet, no mental “diseases” have ever been proven to medically exist.
2. PSYCHIATRISTS DEAL EXCLUSIVELY WITH MENTAL “DISORDERS,” NOT PROVEN DISEASES.
While mainstream physical medicine treats diseases, psychiatry can only deal with “disorders.” In the absence of a known cause or physiology, a group of symptoms seen in many different patients is called a disorder or syndrome. Harvard Medical School’s Joseph Glenmullen, MD, says that in psychiatry, “all of its diagnoses are merely syndromes [or disorders], clusters of symptoms presumed to be related, not diseases.” As Dr. Thomas Szasz, Professor of Psychiatry Emeritus, observes, “There is no blood or other biological test to ascertain the presence or absence of a mental illness, as there is for most bodily diseases.”
3. PSYCHIATRY HAS NEVER ESTABLISHED THE CAUSE OF ANY “MENTAL DISORDERS.”
Leading psychiatric agencies such as the World Psychiatric Association and the US National Institute of Mental Health admit that psychiatrists do not know the causes or cures for any mental disorder or what their “treatments” specifically do to the patient. They have only theories and conflicting opinions about their diagnoses and methods, and are lacking any scientific basis for these. As a past president of the World Psychiatric Association stated, “The time when psychiatrists considered that they could cure the mentally ill is gone. In the future, the mentally ill have to learn to live with their illness.”
4. THE THEORY THAT MENTAL DISORDERS DERIVE FROM A “CHEMICAL IMBALANCE” IN THE BRAIN IS UNPROVEN OPINION, NOT FACT.
One prevailing psychiatric theory (key to psychotropic drug sales) is that mental disorders result from a chemical imbalance in the brain. As with its other theories, there is no biological or other evidence to prove this. Representative of a large group of medical and biochemistry experts, Elliot Valenstein, Ph.D., author of Blaming the Brain says: “[T]here are no tests available for assessing the chemical status of a living person’s brain.”
5. THE BRAIN IS NOT THE REAL CAUSE OF LIFE’S PROBLEMS.
People do experience problems and upsets in life that may result in mental troubles, sometimes very serious. But to represent that these troubles are caused by incurable “brain diseases” that can only be alleviated with dangerous pills is dishonest, harmful and often deadly. Such drugs are often more potent than a narcotic and capable of driving one to violence or suicide. They mask the real cause of problems in life and debilitate the individual, so denying him or her the opportunity for real recovery and hope for the future.

In My Opinion…
There’s an answer to what is termed psychiatric disorders. The Answer is Jesus Christ. When He was here on earth, 2000 years ago, there was no such thing as mental disorders or diseases. There was only deliverance from demon possession and oppression. What was true then, is true today. The Bible is NOT outdated! Despair and brokenness cause many problems that greedy doctors call, ‘psychiatric problems’. When a person allows fear into their lives, the dark forces that be in this world will attack. Doctors call these attacks depression, bi-polar, schizophrenia, etc. God calls them the result of sin.
What would happen if psychiatrists’ patients realized this? What would happen to the billions of dollars each year in revenue collected by psychiatrists, psychologists, big pharma and pharmacies if there were no more need to psychiatric drugs? What would happen to detox centers and rehabs? Hmmmmm… something to consider!
