Psychiatry’s Claims of Childhood Disorders False and Unsubstantiated
October 09, 2005 (PRLEAP.COM) Education News
Members of the Vancouver chapter of the Citizens Commission on Human Rights are challenging psychiatry’s statement that 140,000 British Columbia children have some sort of “mental disorder” by calling it fraudulent, an attempt to cash in at the expense of vulnerable and helpless little children and an effort to seduce well meaning teachers, parents, government officials and others into believing their trumped-up “disorders” actually exist.
Psychiatric leaders themselves admit that they do not know how the mind works or how to help with mental difficulties. 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.
Since last October, official warnings of the side effects of psychiatric drugs by regulatory agencies worldwide have escalated rapidly - sixteen in the last twelve months alone - culminating in a September 2005 landmark report by the United Nations Committee on the Rights of the Child, which issued a strong warning against false labeling of youth with the psychiatric diagnosis of "Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder" (ADHD) and its treatment with powerful mind-altering psychiatric drugs.
CCHR has published a new White Paper, summarizing the past year's official warnings and providing recommendations to protect the public health from further harm. It can be viewed at their website.
Psychiatry’s drugs of choice for Attention Deficit Disorder ( ADHD), one of their invented “illnesses”, came under fire last month when Health Canada asked all the makers of drugs used for ADHD to submit data from all clinical trials and post-marketing reports by the end of 2005. The data will be examined following it’s submission in the new year. The drugs that will be reviewed are Concerta, Adderall XR, Dexadrine, Ritalin and Attenade; drugs which are given to children for ADHD.
The psychiatric amphetamine type drug Adderall which was banned from the Canadian market in February 2005 and then allowed back on the market in August, is now to be reviewed again according to a spokesperson for Health Canada.
On September 29, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration ordered that “black box” warnings be placed on a commonly prescribed ADHD drug, Strattera, after clinical trials linked the drug to suicidal thoughts and behavior. The FDA indicated that the new warning stems from an ongoing review of all ADHD drugs and their possible association with suicide.
Brian Beaumont, President of the Vancouver chapter of the Citizens Commission on Human Rights stated, "The fact is, there is nothing in any medical or scientific literature that confirms the existence of Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). It was invented by a handful of psychiatrists by a show of hands at an American Psychiatric Association meeting in the 80’s. Thus, psychiatrists are labeling and drugging a non-existent malady which is an indictable offence, fraud and child abuse.”
The Citizens Commission on Human Rights was established in 1969 by the Church of Scientology to investigate and expose psychiatric violations of human rights. For more information go to http://www.cchr.org
