With the possible exception of professional hit men, psychiatrists are probably the world’s most grim and depressing profession.
If we place mental health in the hands of a cult of money-grubbing pessimistic drug dealers with an appalling track record of making people worse, how on God’s green Earth can we expect to cheer people up?
The following article aptly questions the wisdom of investing our hard-earned tax pounds in outright charlatanry.
Psychiatry takes pessimism to new depths
When it comes to the mental welfare of those who may be experiencing difficulties, it would be beneficial to promote well being as well as an optimistic outlook during these unprecedented times.
Psychiatrists however don’t appear to see it that way. When reading some statements in the press, the pessimism appears to have been elevated to new levels. In view of the fact that psychiatrists deal with people experiencing mental troubles, the level of pessimism doesn’t bode well for those looking for comfort and help.
Concurrent with the bleak outlook is a perverse call from a senior psychiatrist for continued investment in mental health. It’s described as perverse based on the outcomes and long-term results that emanate from the psychiatric industry.
For governments, the initial societal fix was to spend millions on ‘experts,’ aka psychiatrists, who claimed to have the answers to the problems of mental illness. But when the problems worsened, the experts said they needed billions, not millions. When the problems continued to worsen, the experts said they needed more billions. And so it goes on.
Today, according to these experts, we may be facing a ‘tsunami of referrals’ to mental health services.
This doesn’t mean that serious mental difficulties don’t exist, that people’s hopes and dreams can’t be shattered or that their methods of coping with this cannot fail.
If however the mental health situation is becoming worse, it means they have failed to effectively resolve the problem. At the very least, they have proven themselves to be technically incompetent.
Many people who pursued help for their mental difficulties have ended up as patients for life. Many have found themselves addicted to antidepressants or anti-anxiety drugs and suffering iatrogenic harm. Worse still, figures for 2018 from the Office for National Statistics 2018 revealed that deaths in England and Wales linked to antidepressants were more than one a day. In a 26-year period, 1993-2018, the number of deaths was 11,687. Deaths were counted when a substance was mentioned on the death certificate. These are appalling statistics.
The pessimistic psychiatric outlook, when accompanied by dangerous psychiatric drugs that exacerbate perceived difficulties is a double whammy for anyone hoping for recovery.
The workability and results of any industry are key factors for potential investors. As the main investors in mental health services, we as taxpayers should exercise some prudence, and insist on psychiatric accountability. That might be uncomfortable for those seeking the funding, but it could be life-saving for those who simply need an injection of kindness and compassion in their time of need.
