More Dismal News From Mental Institutions

This article is from KFWB News in Los Angeles, and it's about increases in suicides and attempted suicides in California mental institutions. The article quotes people who try to blame it on lack of staff in the mental institutions, so it's the old saw: "We are supposed to be making people better, but we can't because we don't get enough money!" But the truth is the amount of insurance money and other money is way beyond anybody's wildest imagination. It's not the right reason for the problem. The correct reason is because our mental health system, under the control of psychiatry and Big Pharma, makes people worse, not better. Someone in those mental institutions is being given mind-altering drugs that cause a high percentage of people to become suicidal or homicidal -- like Prozac, Paxil, Luvox, etc., etc., etc.

Our motto: Why is it that people do their worst AFTER they get "help" from psychiatry instead of before? Doesn't that prove that today's psychiatry doesn't work? Why is it that someone decides they are mentally ill (or someone else does) so they enter a mental institution that is supposed to help people who are mentally ill -- then after getting "treatment" for some time commits suicide? Or murders someone. Why?

Richard Jeni: Another Psychiatry Victim

The article below is from the news on Internet Movie Database ( regarding comedian Richard Jeni, who recently committed suicide:

As we can see, he was a victim of psychiatry. Following the usual pattern, he went to a psychiatrist for help, instead became worse, and finally killed himself AFTER he got his “help”. It doesn’t say so in this article, but it is very likely that his “treatment” at the hand of the witch doctors included psychiatric drugs like Prozac or Paxil or Luvox or, or, or… all part of a family of drugs called SSRIs, that cause the kind of suicidal/homicidal behavior they are supposed to prevent. Chalk up another victim for the shamans of the 21st Century.

Tragic comedian Richard Jeni's family have confirmed the funnyman took his own life as he struggled with severe clinical depression coupled with bouts of psychotic paranoia. Jeni's family released a statement yesterday in an effort to end speculation about the comedian's death on Saturday. The statement begins, "The family of Richard Jeni would like to put to rest any assumptions as to the cause of Richard's death. Despite the fact that the coroner's office has publicly stated that a suicide ruling will take two weeks, pending the results of an autopsy, Richard Jeni did take his own life." In the statement, Jeni's family reveal the comic was not, as reported, depressed after a series of professional disappointments, insisting he "had just enjoyed one of his most financially rewarding years to date." The statement reads, "The past few years had been more prolific than ever. As his agents can attest, prior to his illness, Richard only missed one engagement in over 20, and that was due to weather. The truth is earlier this year Richard Jeni was diagnosed with severe clinical depression coupled with bouts of psychotic paranoia. One only needs to have a family member or friend with a mental illness to understand that there is nothing rational, predictable, or fair about these diseases... He was not down or blue, he was ill."

FDA Indictment

This post is going to be short and sweet. But the link below is anything but short and sweet. It is a severe indictment of the Big Pharma establishment and its puppet, the FDA. It is long. Listen to as much as you want. You may find yourself listening to the whole thing. It's the video you find partway down the page at this web site.

Normal Children Being Called Mentally Ill By Psychs

Leading Psychiatrist Admits Normal Children Are Diagnosed With Mental Disorders

Statement Adds to Controversy over Drugs Prescribed for Questionable Psychiatric Diagnoses

With increasing international concern about the large number of children labeled with so-called psychiatric disorders and prescribed mind-altering drugs, even the pioneer of psychiatry’s billing bible and “godfather of ADHD," Dr. Robert Spitzer, has now admitted that normal children are being labeled. Spitzer, a Columbia University psychiatrist, told BBC2 that children experiencing perfectly normal signs of being happy and sad are being labeled as mentally ill. While admitting this, he stopped short of informing BBC viewers that there is no scientific evidence that any of the millions of children so diagnosed have any physical abnormality that justifies the diagnosis. Nor that because of this, psychiatrists cannot agree on who is sick and who is well. Yet despite this fallible "science," worldwide sales of psychotropic drugs prescribed to treat "mental disorders," including stimulants antipsychotics and antidepressants, now exceed $80 billion annually.

Spitzer arbitrarily outlined many of the psychiatric labels and their symptoms found in psychiatry’s Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM). Yet, unlike medical diseases, psychiatric disorders are entirely subjective—psychiatrists at the American Psychiatric Association literally vote on which "disorders" to include in the DSM, and the disorders are removed if they are too much trouble. Such was the case with homosexuality, which, while found in earlier versions of the DSM, ceased to be called a "mental disorder" after gay activists picketed an APA conference in 1973. There are no physical tests, such as blood tests, brain scans or X-Rays that can confirm the existence of any psychiatric disorder. Spitzer’s de facto admission that psychiatric labels are unreliable, comes more than three decades after he first began working on the DSM III. Since then, psychiatrists have been using the DSM to fraudulently claim that mental disorders are the same as physical disorders, and thereby justifying the prescription of powerful, psychotropic drugs, including to very young children.

Despite FDA warnings that psychiatric drugs cause heart attack, stroke, suicidal and homicidal behavior, diabetes, psychosis and sudden death, Spitzer stated that psychiatric drugs “don’t have serious side effects.” Last year, drug regulatory and other government agencies around the world issued more than 24 warnings against psychiatric drugs. For more information on the dangers of psychiatric drugs, read The Report on the Escalating International Warnings on Psychiatric Drugs by the Citizens Commission on Human Rights, a mental health watchdog.

Marilyn Monroe Murdered With Help Of Psychiatrist?

An article in the Sydney Morning Herald outlines an FBI memo alleging that the death of Marilyn Monroe was a sort of passive murder.

Monroe was inclined to make suicide attempts, but she was usually rescued. In this case, it was a set-up, according to the memo. Induced by Robert Kennedy or his associates, who feared embarrassment by exposure of Monroe's affair with Kennedy, her psychiatrist prescribed an unusually large quantity of sleeping pills. When she took them she fully expected to have her stomach pumped as it had been in the past, but instead she was ignored and allowed to die.

Although it does not say so in this article, I have elsewhere read that her psychiatrist was in her home at the time of her death.

Given the credibility (or lack) of the FBI during the Hoover years, the document may stretch or fabricate the story, but it is interesting, and in other forms it has been floating around for years. We may never know the truth.

But there is one little fact that sticks: Where there is a psychiatrist there is a person whose mental health is getting worse, not better. The nominal purpose for psychiatry is to help people with mental difficulties. But in practice, we usually find that a person worsens after seeing a psychiatrist. In this case, we have Marilyn, who committed suicide after getting years of supposed "help" from a psychiatrist. It's like the school shooters, the mothers who butcher their kids, all after getting their psychiatric help and drugs, not before.
