Psychiatrists gratuitously promote themselves as the custodians of mental health. However, when witnessing their ‘work’ and analysing their results, it would be more accurate to call them the custodians of mental illness. Psychiatric treatment has the potential of making people into life-long patients and can even result in death.
So, in a week that includes World Suicide Prevention Day (10 September), it’s a time to remember those who have been lost to psychiatric drugs, especially antidepressants. The very drugs that are marketed as the accepted treatment have been linked to violence and aggression as well as suicidal thoughts and suicidal behaviour.
Prescribed for everything from learning and behavioural problems, bedwetting, juvenile delinquency, criminality, drug addiction and smoking, to handling the fears of the elderly, antidepressants are among the most widely prescribed drugs on Earth.
There are many people however, including parents, who have spoken of their grief and frustration which then turned to anger at not knowing the effects of antidepressants prior to their loved ones or their children taking their own lives.
Unlike medical drugs, which commonly may prevent or cure disease or improve health, psychiatric drugs are only designed to suppress symptoms that return once the drug wears off. Meanwhile, physical illnesses that may be causing the symptoms go unrecognised and may get worse, but the person continues to be bombarded with psychiatric drugs. This is one of the ways that people become prolonged or even life-long psychiatric patients.
There’s a big difference between medical disease and psychiatric ‘disorders.’ Unlike medical disease which can be seen under a microscope, there are no laboratory tests to identify a disorder. In an attempt to appear scientific, psychiatrists claim that their ‘disorders’ come from a chemical imbalance in the brain. This claim has never been proven true as there are no tests to assess the chemical status of a living person’s brain or how to determine what a correct chemical balance looks like.
Mental problems however can be resolved, and thankfully so. According to top experts, a large number of people having mental problems are actually suffering from nonpsychiatric disease which is causing emotional stress. Competent medical doctors can conduct thorough medical examinations to rule out if an untreated medical condition may be causing depression.
On World Suicide Prevention Day, be fully informed about the effects of psychiatric drugs. It may even save your life

The Liberty Beacon Project is now expanding at a near exponential rate, and for this we are grateful and excited! But we must also be practical. For 7 years we have not asked for any donations, and have built this project with our own funds as we grew. We are now experiencing ever increasing growing pains due to the large number of websites and projects we represent. So we have just installed donation buttons on our websites and ask that you consider this when you visit them. Nothing is too small. We thank you for all your support and your considerations … (TLB)
