Looking for Psychiatric Hospitals in Limpopo?

Are you are searching for a nearby psychiatric hospital in Limpopo Province or mental institution that provides local mental health services in Limpopo? If you are looking for an inpatient, outpatient, emergency, geriatric, or children's mental hospital in the province to treat schizophrenia, bipolar, depression, anxiety, or other acute behavioural personality disorders, then you should first become informed about the treatments, therapies and programmes used in Limpopo psychiatric facilities and exactly what the effects of those "treatments" are.

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

Local Mental Institutions and Psychiatric Homes in Limpopo

Psychiatric Hospitals in LimpopoMental hospitals, psychiatric homes, clinics and mental institutions in Limpopo are facilities that specialise in using harmful practices to "correct" psychiatric disorders.

Mental health facilities haven't developed too far from those of the early 1800s. Modern psychiatric hospitals in Limpopo may have cunningly masked their treatments with medical legitimacy, using modern hospital settings with white-coated assistants and modern sophisticated-looking equipment, but in place of being flogged and chained, psychiatric patients are given heavy doses of harmful drugs - and if they resist are forcibly restrained and chemically sedated. None of this, of course, is beneficial for the patient - 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 in a local mental hospital in Limpopo can be worse than being in prison, because without a trial, you can lose all of your rights, be sent to a psychiatric institution, treated involuntarily, and remain there indefinitely, all on the say-so of a psychiatrist. And if you really want to find out what a modern mental health facility in Limpopo is like, just ask anyone who has had the misfortune of having been a patient in one. So, if you are searching for a nearby private or government psychiatric hospital in Limpopo to admit yourself or another; think again.

Assessments, Evaluations and Tests in Mental Hospitals in Limpopo

Limpopo Psychiatric Hospitals Assessments, Tests and DiagnosisDespite the massive funding for government psychiatric institutions in Limpopo using taxpayer's money; and the huge health insurance costs paid out to private psychiatric hospitals in Limpopo province for mental health treatments, just how safe and effective are these hospital treatments and procedures?

Well, consider this fact about psychiatric tests and treatments used in mental clinics and hospitals - none are based on science. When you receive a psychiatric doctor's evaluation or test in a local Limpopo mental hospital, or anywhere else for that matter, you are being tested by hospital psychiatrists and clinical staff based on what they "believe" is wrong with you. No genuine medical tests in any mental health hospital or clinic in Limpopo province, or elsewhere, can reveal any actual mental or behavioural disorder. If you are told differently you are being lied to and should get real medical advice (not from a psychiatrist).

With no science to base mental health tests, assessments and treatments on, mental patients in psychiatric wards face many dangers due to a lack of scientific understanding, not only in local psychiatric hospitals in Limpopo but worldwide.

Today, numerous medical failures, errors and abuses occur in mental institutions and clinics in Limpopo province and across South Africa as well as internationally. If you are thinking of admitting yourself or another to a nearby psychiatric hospital in Limpopo, you need to understand that some of the worst violations of human rights are perpetrated inside government funded and privately owned psychiatric facilities. Instead of receiving proper health care and comfort, mental patients can be detained against their will, beaten, drugged, restrained, sexually abused, denied real medical care, experimented upon and locked up in isolation.

Limpopo Psychiatric Hospital Mental Health Services and Treatments

Psychiatric Hospitals in Limpopo Mental Health Treatments and ServicesIn psychiatric hospitals and mental health facilities in Limpopo there is no mental healing. Mental disorders are usually masked by prescribing powerful mind-altering drugs or by using invasive psychiatric procedures that may alleviate the "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 employed to first rule out physical health problems a patient may have.

Psychiatric Treatments and Therapies Used in Mental Institutions in Limpopo

With huge health insurance payouts and heavy government funding, local private and government psychiatric hospitals in Limpopo province are able to pull in large sums of money for mental treatments that actually don't work. Regardless of a patient's status; whether an emergency, inpatient, or outpatient wanting psychiatric hospital treatment, the basis of any therapy or treatment is the same - mask the mental illness symptoms without a cure. Psychiatric services and treatments performed in mental institutions in Limpopo use force to overwhelm a mental patient's problems. These therapies only suppress the symptoms, they don't cure. Here are some hospital treatments used for mental health disorders:

  • ADHD/ADD Treatments in Limpopo

(ADHD) Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder and (ADD) Attention Deficit Disorder are usually treated in psychiatric clinics with medications that have harmful side-effects. See more on ADHD/ADD.

  • Psychosurgery for Mental Health Disorders

Psychosurgery treatment like the lobotomy is cutting-up and removing pieces of a patient's brain to "treat" mental diseases, but the results are the same - brain damage. See more on Psychosurgery.
