Caroline Mazel-Carlton began hearing voices when she was in day care. Mornings, by the time she was in middle school, a bowl of oatmeal awaited her for breakfast next to a white saucer of colorful pills. Her voices remained vibrant.

Psychiatry’s diagnostic criteria are literally voted into existence and inserted into the American Psychiatric Association’s Diagnostic and Statistical Manual for Mental Disorders (DSM).

Electroshock treatment—also known as electroconvulsive therapy (ECT)—and psychosurgery “treatments” are reportedly trying to stage a comeback.

Antidepressants and antipsychotics, along with other dangerous prescription drugs, should never ever be used, as they create a type of chemical restraint.

After that, they need to be taken off antidepressants or stay institutionalized. … Continue reading Antidepressant Prescriptions for Children on the Rise ~ Including Babies!
