Searching for Psychiatric Hospitals in Free State?

Are you are looking for a nearby psychiatric institution in Free State or mental hospital that provides local mental health services in Free State province? If you are searching for a geriatric, adult, children and adolescent, inpatient, outpatient, or emergency psychiatric hospital in Free State to treat depression and anxiety, bipolar, schizophrenia, or acute behavioural personality disorders, then you may want to be enlightened about what therapies, treatments and programmes are used in mental health facilities and what the effects of those "treatments" are.

Since 1969, The Citizens Commission on Human Rights (CCHR) has been committed to the reform of mental health, ensuring psychiatric homes, hospitals, institutions and psychiatrists in Free State are held responsible for their harmful practices on mental patients, not only locally in Free State and across South Africa but internationally.

Local Psychiatric Complexes in Free State

Psychiatric Hospitals in Free StateMental health clinics, wards, homes, institutions, hospitals and psychiatric complexes in Free State are facilities that specialise in using harmful practices to "correct" mental health disorders.

Psychiatric hospitals haven't developed very far from the mental asylums of the early 1800s. Modern psychiatric facilities in Free State may have deceptively cloaked their hospitals with medical legitimacy through the use of clinical settings, white-coated hospital staff, and sophisticated modern-looking equipment, but instead of being chained and beaten, mental patients in hospitals are given high doses of medications - and if they resist or protest are forcibly restrained and sedated against their will. None of this however is of any benefit to the patient, physically or mentally - but then again, even the top psychiatrists in the world admit they can't "cure".

"The time when psychiatrists considered that they could cure the mentally ill is gone. In the future, the mentally ill will have to learn to live with their illness." Norman Sartorius - President, World Psychiatric Association, 1993-1999

Being admitted to a local Free State psychiatric facility can be worse than being put in prison, as with no trial, you can lose all of your rights, be subjected to involuntarily mental procedures and treatments and remain hospitalized indefinitely, all on a psychiatrist's say-so. And if you really want to find out what a modern psychiatric hospital complex in Free State is like, ask anyone who has been misfortunate of being a patient in one. So, if you are looking for a local private or government psychiatric hospital in Free State to admit yourself or another; think again.

Evaluations and Tests in Mental Hospitals in Free State

Free State Psychiatric Hospitals Assessments, Tests and DiagnosisDespite the monumental amount of money poured into government psychiatric hospitals in Free State -using taxpayer's money - and large volumes of health insurance payouts to private psychiatric facilities in the province - for the treatment of mental health patients - just how safe and effective are psychiatric treatments in hospital complexes in Free State?

Well, think about this. The mental health tests, assessments, evaluations, diagnoses and treatments in psychiatric clinics in Free State are NOT scientific, although are made to appear that way. When you receive a mental health assessment in a Free State psychiatric ward, or any other hospital complex for that matter, you are being evaluated by hospital psychiatric doctors and treated by clinical staff based on invalid "science". You undergo psychiatric procedures or take medications based on what they "believe" is wrong with you. No genuine medical tests in any Free State mental health hospital, clinic or ward, can honestly reveal any psychiatric behavioural disorder in a patient. If you are told the contrary you are being lied to and should seek real professional medical advice, (not from a psychiatrist).

With no science to base hospital psychiatric assessments and treatments on, patients in psychiatric facilities face many dangers due to a lack of scientific understanding of mental problems, not only in local psychiatric hospitals in Free State but worldwide.

Today, many medical failures, errors and abuses occur in Free State psychiatric complexes and mental institutions throughout the province, as well as nationally in South Africa and internationally. If you are considering admitting a family member or yourself to a nearby psychiatric hospital in Free State you should know that some of the worst human rights violations are perpetrated inside government funded institutions and privately owned mental hospitals. Instead of receiving appropriate medical care and comfort, mental health patients can be held against their will, restrained, beaten, forcibly drugged, sexually abused, experimented upon, denied real medical health care, and locked up in isolation.

Free State Psychiatric Hospital Services and Treatments

Psychiatric Hospitals in Free State Mental Health Treatments and ServicesIn psychiatric facilities and mental hospitals in Free State there is no mental healing. Psychiatric disorders are commonly masked with powerful mind-altering drugs and invasive mental health procedures that are brutal. The treatments may alleviate a patient's "symptoms" but they don't address the real cause.

In a 2002 survey of medical doctors, when asked to distinguish between a "mental disorder" and physical illness, 65% of non-psychiatric physicians said that physical examinations and clinical diagnostic testing should be used first, to rule out physical problems.

Psychiatric treatments and therapies used in Free State mental institutions

Receiving government funds and payouts by health insurance companies, local private and government psychiatric hospitals in Free State are able to generate a massive income for mental health services and therapies that don't work. Regardless of the status of a patient; whether needing emergency psychiatric treatment, an outpatient or inpatient at a psychiatric clinic in Free State, the basis of treatment for mental disorders is the same - masking the symptoms only and no cure. Psychiatric services and treatments performed in a Free State psychiatric complex will use force to overwhelm a patient's mental problems. These treatments suppress symptoms of mental upset, they don't cure mental disease. The following are mental health treatments and services one can expect in a psychiatric hospital, ward, clinic, or home:

  • ADD/ADHD Treatments in Free State

(ADD) Attention Deficit Disorder and (ADHD) Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder are usually treated with prescription psychiatric drugs that have damaging side-effects. See more on ADHD/ADD.

  • (ECT) Electroconvulsive Therapy in Free State

(ECT) Electroshock therapy passes up to 460 volts of electricity through the brain of a patient; based on the theory that it "resets" the brain but this has never been proven scientifically. See more on ECT treatment.

  • Treating Mental Disorders with Psychosurgery

Psychosurgery, such as the lobotomy, involves cutting-up and removing pieces of a patient's brain to "treat" so-called mental disease, but the end result is the same - brain damage. See more on Psychosurgery.

  • Brain Implants: The Latest Psychiatric Procedure for Behavioural Disorders

(DBS) Deep Brain Stimulation involves passing wires through a patient's skull into the brain. Hospitals are experimenting with these procedures on "mentally" ill patients. See more on Deep Brain Stimulation.

  • Schizophrenia Treatment in Free State

Schizophrenia is usually treated with antipsychotics despite their proven risks and despite studies showing patient improvement after they stop taking them. See more on Schizophrenia.

  • Bipolar Disorder Treatments in Free State

Bipolar Disorder is treated with harmful mood stabilizing drugs to "balance" a chemical imbalance in the brain. No physical scientific test can prove this chemical imbalance theory. See more on "brain-chemical imbalance".

  • (OCD) Obsessive Compulsive Disorders, Depression, Anxiety, Etc.

Today, a mental disorder diagnosis in a psychiatric clinic will almost always result in a psychiatric medication prescription. But are these drugs the "miracle pill" that hospital psychiatrists say they are? Actually, no. These drugs come with many dangerous side-effects that are sometimes permanent. Read more on psychiatric drug side effects.

  • Alcohol and Drug Addiction Psychiatric Rehabilitation in Free State

Ironically, psychiatric rehab centres in Free State treat drug and alcohol addiction with substitute medications and drugs that can be just as addictive and more so.

  • Dementia Treatments in Free State Psychiatric Homes

Dementia patients are treated with powerful mind-altering drugs as well as electroshock "treatment" that sadly cause premature and unnecessary deaths in elderly patients. Read more on dementia treatments.
