PSYCHIATRY: FRIEND OR FOE? THE UNTOLD STORY OF AUSTRALIAN PSYCHIATRY

Australia is experiencing a tidal wave of psychiatric drugging. In a population of just over 24 million, more than 35 million prescriptions are written for psychiatric drugs every year, with $8 billion spent annually on mental health. Of great concern is the growing numbers of children and teenagers on antidepressants when no antidepressant is approved for use in children under the age of 18 for depression. Considering the huge increases in psychiatric drug consumption over the last twenty years – drugs we are told are nothing short of miraculous – why aren’t we doing better? This compelling documentary details the real story of what lies behind the ever-increasing psychiatric funding and drugging of our children and society. Watch Psychiatry: Friend or Foe? The Untold Story of Australian Psychiatry. It is vital information everyone needs to know.

What’s Wrong with Psychiatry? A Psychiatrist Explains

Dr. Niall McLaren, a practicing psychiatrist for 22 years, explains what is wrong with the psychiatric profession: That this is an industry which cannot take criticism, for fear the entire model of biological psychiatry will unravel.

That there is no science to psychiatric diagnoses, no brain based diseases. And that psychiatry only pushes mental disorders as biological disease/illness in order to convince people to take psychiatric drugs, causing a host of dangerous side effects.

Green Mental Health: An Alternative to Toxic Psychiatric Drugs

Psychiatry’s solution to life’s problems is the administration of mind-altering toxic drugs which according to the U.S. FDA can cause mania, worsening depression, anxiety, delusions, seizures, liver failure, suicide, mania, heart attack, stroke, fatal blood clots, sudden death, diabetes and much more. Green Mental Health Care is a non-toxic, non-addictive and non-invasive approach to mental health which focuses on workable medical, not psychiatric, solutions that have better patient outcomes and are not harmful or toxic to those seeking help. Nutritional biochemist Genita Petralli has dedicated her life to helping people with mental difficulties by finding and treating undiagnosed physical conditions that manifest as psychiatric symptoms. She has also helped many people recover from the devastating effects and addicting nature of the psychiatric drugs prescribed them.

”My life is dedicated to reclaiming lives from psychiatric drugs and exposing psychiatry for what it is; a gang of white collar drug pushers robbing our society of every resource that supports it right down to our future; the children. To sit on the sidelines and do nothing while I watch people suffer from the effects of psychiatric drugs is not an option.” – Genita Petralli

Dr. Hyla Cass: First Do No Harm

Psychiatrist Hyla Cass describes how most psychiatrists simply label patients mentally ill based solely on symptoms and put them on dangerous and addictive drugs, instead of doing complete physical examinations to find and treat underlying medical conditions which can manifest as psychiatric symptoms. There are numerous non-harmful medical solutions that patients are not being offered in the field of psychiatry, and instead being put on drugs with serious and deadly side effects that are highly addictive.

Dr. Cass also discusses the severe withdrawal effects of psychiatric drugs and what patients need to know about safely getting off of these drugs under a doctor’s supervision.
