What’s wrong with psychiatry? Let a psychiatrist explain….

This two-minute video from CCHR explains what’s wrong with psychiatry. It’s from Dr. Niall McLaren, who’s been a practicing psychiatrist for 22 years, and is the former head of the Dept of Psychiatry at Repatriation Hospital in Australia.

Bluntly, he says that psychiatry is pseudo-science and that all their bunk hangs from one skyhook, “that mental disorder is brain disorder”. And that there is no proof whatever to that premise.

As he says, “bugger the money” that’s being wasted on psychiatry and psych medicine. It’s the inability of psychiatry to actually help people, and the actual harm that it does to people, that is at issue.

Psychiatry is to medicine as astrology is to astronomy. A system of beliefs based on observation and tradition — and not much more.

    Hi, Dale –

    The best place to get accurate information about psychiatry is Citizens Commission on Human Rights (CCHR). Sign up for their mailing list and feel free to call or contact them for more information. They’ve got a ton of it, and the more you learn, the more it will make your blood boil.
