Psyched Out: How Psychiatry Sells Mental Illness and Pushes Pills That Kill

by Kelly Patricia O'Meara (Author)

Book Description
Few would argue that people suffer from mental illness, mental breakdowns,
depression or any number of adjectives that describe behaviors that adversely,
even severely, affect people's lives. In law it is said that "it doesn't matter
what one believes, only what one can prove." The same can be said for
psychiatric diagnosing. It matters little what anyone in the medical/psychiatric
community "believe" is the cause(s) of mental illness. The question that has not
been answered is whether tens of millions of Americans who have been diagnosed
with any one or number of psychiatric mental disorders suffer from a mental
"disease" - an objective, confirmable abnormality of the brain. What is known is
that neither the American Psychiatric Association nor the National Institute of
Mental Health, nor any other medical organization, is capable today of making
available scientific evidence to prove that any psychiatric disorder is an
objective, confirmable abnormality of the brain. This mantra is repeated
throughout the book because it is the point of the book. That people are
suffering isn't in question. Whether they actually suffer from a psychiatric
disorder that is a known objective, confirmable abnormality of the brain is in
question because selling mental disorders as "disease," such as the theoretical
chemical imbalance, has become the norm in the medical/psycho pharmaceutical
Community and it is blatantly false. The People, if given the truth, can take
it. The decision to accept the psychiatric diagnosis and seek treatment with
psychiatric mind-altering drugs may be no different, but at least the decision
will be based on all the truth, the objective confirmable scientific evidence,
not theories, wishful thinking, deceptive advertising and misleading advocacy
group, pharmaceutical company and government-sponsored information campaigns.
