  • Soviet-style abuse of psychiatry is now practiced in the U.S.

    Comrade Psychiatrist is unhappy with Mr. Trump's "delusional reformism" —BombThrowers: American progressives have been enamored with many Soviet ideas in their time, trying to transplant them to the U.S. — from government diktat and central planning to academic indoctrination and propaganda through entertainment. And while the Soviet Union has gone the way of the dodo, its glorious socialist legacy is still up for the picking. One of these unparalleled Soviet achievements is the use of psychiatry to silence dissent and delegitimize political opposition, allowing the KGB to lock up dissidents in mental hospitals nicknamed psikhushkas.

    <p>The number of retirement-age Americans taking at least three psychiatric drugs more than doubled between 2004 and 2013, even though almost half of them had no mental health diagnosis on record, researchers reported on Monday.</p> <p>The new analysis, based on data from doctors’ office visits, suggests that inappropriate prescribing to older people is more common than previously thought. Office visits are a close, if not exact, estimate of underlying patient numbers. The paper appears in the journal JAMA Internal Medicine.</p>
  • State Supreme Court Ruling Expands 'Tarasoff' Duty for Washington State Clinicians (Psychiatrists)

    What Is My Duty to Warn? A Washington state Supreme Court decision appears to significantly broaden the duty that psychiatrists and other mental health professionals in that state have to protect and warn potential victims of violence by a patient under their care. In Volk v. De Meerleer, the Washington state Supreme Court expanded the so-called Tarasoff standard regarding a mental health professional’s duty to protect and warn a third party of possible violence, asserting that the duty extends to any possible victim—even one that has not been specifically identified by the patient. The ruling applies only to clinicians in...

    Rosie O’Donnell has taken to her website to defend herself after being slammed for suggesting on Nov. 21 that Donald Trump’s son Barron is autistic. Here’s why she chose to publicly speculate about Barron. Rosie O’Donnell, 54, has been defending herself on Twitter ever since sharing an anti-bullying video that featured president-elect Donald Trump‘s son Barron on Nov. 21, which questioned whether he was autistic based on certain behaviors he displayed during his father’s campaign. But on Nov. 26 Rosie decided to address the matter head on by writing an emotional message on her website where she defends speculating about...

    The following is testimony of Regina Immersio, a former resident of Rhode Island who was forced against her will by her parents to enroll in government programs and was forcibly sterilized with the drug Klonopin, the same drug that Country singer Stevie Nicks took and rendered her sterile as well.

    SOUTHAMPTON, N.Y. (AP) — Hillary Clinton rolled out a comprehensive plan to address millions of Americans coping with mental illness, pointing to the need to fully integrate mental health services into the nation’s health care system. Clinton’s campaign released a multi-pronged approach to mental health care on Monday, aimed at ensuring that Americans would no longer separate mental health from physical health in terms of access, care and quality of treatment. “We’ve got to break through and break down the stigma and shame. We’ve got to make clear that mental health is not a personal failing. Right now it’s our...

    Only hours after he learned his only daughter was dead, Ed Shoener sat down to write her obituary. It felt like one way he could still take care of his little girl. He and his wife, Ruth, had been steeling themselves for this day since Katie’s first hospitalization more than 11 years ago. He knew immediately why the police were at his doorstep the night of Aug. 3. Yet nothing prepares a parent for the details about how their child ended her life. But if Shoener, a deacon at his Catholic church, learned anything watching his daughter’s long struggle with...

    While watching her in a pre-arranged and set up press conference (basically political theater) this morning she was unable to accept what the FBI Director had said about her being guilty of wrongdoing with the email scandal. I found it fascinating to watch her deny doing anything wrong although the rest of the planet by now knows she was 100% guilty. She also took credit for sending 30,000 emails during her four years as Sec. of State instead of crediting her office and assistants who actually sent the bulk of them. Of course she would then be saying she let...

    Dr. Paul R. McHugh, the Distinguished Service Professor of Psychiatry at Johns Hopkins University and former psychiatrist–in-chief for Johns Hopkins Hospital, who has studied sexuality for 40 years, said it is a scientific fact that “there is no gay gene.” “Environment,” however, “is very important,” said Dr. McHugh, author of The Mind Has Mountains: Reflections on Society and Psychiatry. He also explained that the permissive sexual culture in the United States today has confused “desire” with “love,” and that homosexuality is a false or “erroneous desire.” In an interview with Virtue Online: The Voice for Global Orthodox Anglicanism, reporter Lydia...

    People with the condition are known to have any of a number of delusions that range from believing they have no organs, blood or body parts to insisting they are actually dead even though they are very much still breathing. In even more rare cases of what is also known as walking corpse syndrome, people with the condition consider themselves immortal. Although walking corpse syndrome is considered extremely rare, its exact prevalence is unknown. One Hong Kong study involving 349 psychogeriatric patients suggests the condition afflicts about 0.57 percent of the population. Another study conducted in Mexico in 2010, which...

Health Minister Datuk Seri Dr S Subramaniam said the National Morbidity Study carried out last year revealed that a total of 42,168 people sought psychiatric treatment at government hospitals for some form of mental disorder.
