Searching for Psychiatrists in Eastern Cape?

Are you looking for psychiatrists in Eastern Cape or a psychiatrist that provides psychiatric services in the province? If you are searching for an Eastern Cape psychiatrist for bipolar disorder, depression and anxiety, ADHD, or other mental health disorder then it is wise to firstly be fully informed about what psychiatric treatments are used by psychiatrists, and exactly what the effects of those treatments are.

Since 1969, CCHR Citizens Commission on Human Rights has been deeply involved in the field of mental health reform, ensuring the mental health industry - psychiatrists, psychologists and psychiatric hospitals in Eastern Cape - are held fully responsible for any harm done to their patients, not only locally in the Eastern Cape province but South Africa as a whole and internationally.

Looking for an Adult or Child Psychiatrist in Eastern Cape?

Psychiatrists in Eastern CapeIf you are looking to use the services of a psychiatrist in the Eastern Cape you may want to think again; here's why. Today, in South Africa, our culture has developed to an impressive degree in many fields. But at the same time there are many ways in which South Africa today, and more locally the Eastern Cape, is not as well off. The crime rate is on a long-term increase. Education is declining at a rapid rate. Attempts to treat drug addiction have failed utterly, and only create addiction to more dangerous drugs. Local news headlines in towns and cities across the Eastern Cape Province and around the world report increasing numbers of psychotic, irrational acts of violence which have no motive and cannot be understood. Yet in our enlightened era, treatment of the problems of the mind remains an area of dark, fearsome ignorance.

Psychiatrists worldwide, nationwide, and local psychiatrists in Eastern Cape, have never provided a science of the mind that actually cures mental illness. Instead they use invasive therapies like ECT (electric shocks to the brain) and prescribe mind-altering psychiatric drugs that are intensely destructive. Medical evidence shows that such drugs can, and actually do, create killers. Sexual abuse by therapists is well known to be destructive, yet psychiatrists and psychologists sexually abuse their patients at a startling rate. They commit health insurance fraud at a higher rate than any profession and many come from the dregs of medical school classes. It's a fact that in whatever Eastern Cape town or city you live, nearby psychiatrists in Eastern Cape actually create worse mental health problems in the province.

Need a Psychiatric Evaluation by an Eastern Cape Psychiatrist?

Eastern Cape Psychiatrist for Evaluation, Test, Assessment, or DiagnosisIt is important to know that psychiatry consists, not of methods of healing, but of brutal practices that no self-respecting medical professional would ever call treatment. As author Edward Shorter stated in A History of Psychiatry, psychiatrists have had "a rather poor reputation among their medical colleagues as the dull and the second rate." Despite massive funding increases, Eastern Cape psychiatrists have failed to define, let alone cure, the causes of mental problems.

While there is an appearance that modern psychiatry is scientific, it still fumbles around with brutal psychiatric treatments and a complete lack of systematic approach to mental health. The absence of any real scientific system for psychiatric diagnosis by psychiatrists for mental problems contributes to psychiatry's poor reputation. A psychiatric evaluation in the Eastern Cape by a psychiatrist doctor is simply nothing but dangerous guesswork at the expense of their Eastern Cape mental patients.

How Does an Eastern Cape Psychiatrist Diagnose Mental Disorders?

Psychiatrists in Eastern Cape and South Africa use a list of so called mental disorders to compare with or judge against a patient's own mental problems. The most common list of disorders used for psychiatric diagnosis is compiled into a book called the Diagnostic Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM). In 1952 the DSM contained only 112 entries of mental disorders but the number of disorders has increased dramatically to 374 in 1994, and is still rising today. WHY?

A study published in April 2006 by university public health researchers, disclosed that every psychiatric expert involved in the development of the mood disorders listed in the DSM-IV had financial ties with drug companies, before or after the book was published. This report was the first to officially document the wide-ranging and incestuous monetary relationship between the pharmaceutical companies, psychiatrists and other mental health industry personnel responsible for the manual. In effect, the Diagnostic Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders is a grab bag of billing items for the mental health industry.

What You Need to Know About Psychiatric Assessments in Eastern Cape

Depicted as diagnostic tools, the DSM or other similarly compiled list of "mental disorders" are not only used to diagnose mental illness and prescribe treatment in Eastern Cape, but also to resolve child custody battles, discrimination cases based on alleged psychiatric disability, support court testimony, modify education and much more. Yet there is no science to this diagnostic system despite huge sums of Eastern Cape taxpayer's money being poured into psychiatry in South Africa. If you get a psychiatric evaluation by an Eastern Cape psychiatrist and then visit another psychiatrist in your area, chances are both psychiatrists will give different evaluations and prescribe different treatments. Psychiatrist doctors and psychologists base their evaluations on what they think is wrong with a patient and NOT on any scientific cause. They treat a list of symptoms and NOT real causes.

Need an Eastern Cape Psychiatrist for Psychiatric Treatment?

Psychiatrist in Eastern Cape Psychiatric Treatments and ServicesThrough stigmatizing labels, unscientific diagnoses, easy seizure and commitment laws and brutal, depersonalizing treatments, millions around the world fall into psychiatry's coercive system every year. And too many individuals and governments assume that psychiatrists understand and practice mental healing, when they don't.

The questions used by Eastern Cape psychiatrists for patient mental disorder evaluations are not reliable to diagnose any psychiatric condition. If you visit a psychiatrist in the Eastern Cape area you will generally have a brief consultation where you are told what is wrong with you without making any physical examination. A psychiatrist report recommending a course of psychiatric treatment is not based on a valid diagnosis. Before being given any medication or treatment by a local psychiatrist in Eastern Cape ask them what physical checks they are going to perform to diagnose you. The chances are they won't perform any physical check, simply because they don't know what causes mental illness.
