Searching for Psychiatrists in Limpopo?

Are you looking for psychiatrists in Limpopo or a psychiatrist that provides psychiatric services in Limpopo Province? If you are searching for a psychiatrist to treat a mental health disorder such as depression or anxiety, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder ADHD, Attention Deficit Disorder ADD, bipolar disorder, or any other psychiatric disorder, you should first find out and become educated on what psychiatric treatments are used by Limpopo psychiatrists, and what the effects of those treatments are.

Since 1969, the Citizens Commission on Human Rights (CCHR) has been deeply involved in the reform of the mental health industry, ensuring psychiatrists, psychologists and psychiatric hospitals in Limpopo are held fully responsible for any mental patient's harm, not only locally in Limpopo but in South Africa and internationally.

Looking for an Adult or Child Psychiatrist in Limpopo?

Psychiatrists in Limpopo, South AfricaIf you want to use the psychiatric services of a psychiatrist in Limpopo you may want to think again; here's why. In South Africa today, our society has impressively progressed in many fields. But at the same time there are many ways in which South Africa, and more locally Limpopo, has not progressed at all well. Education has and still is declining rapidly. Crime is still on the increase. Drug addict treatments of drug addiction have failed completely, creating more addiction to more dangerous drugs. The news headlines in local towns and cities across Limpopo Province and around the world continue to report greater numbers of irrational and psychotic acts of violence which is not understood as to motive. Yet in our educated and progressive time, treatment of the problems of the mind remains an area of ignorance. WHY?

Psychiatrists worldwide, across South Africa, and local psychiatrists in Limpopo, have never come forth with a science of the mind that actually cures mental illness. Instead psychiatry uses invasive mental health procedues and treatments like electroconvulsive therapy (passing searing volts of electricity through the brain) and prescribing intensely destructive psychiatric medications that damage the mind. Medical evidence shows that such drugs can, and actually do, create killers. Sexual abuse by mental health therapists is well known to be destructive, yet psychiatrists and psychologists sexually abuse their patients at a startling rate. They also commit health insurance fraud at a higher rate than any other profession and most come from the lower grades of medical school classes. It's an unfortunate fact, but whatever Limpopo city or town you live; local psychologists and psychiatrists in Limpopo actually create worse mental health problems in the province.

Need a Psychiatric Evaluation by a Limpopo Psychiatrist?

Limpopo Psychiatrist for Evaluation, Test, Assessment, or DiagnosisIt is necessary to understand that the psychiatric field and psychiatry as a whole consists, not of methods of healing, but of harmful treatments that no moral medical professional would ever call a 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 increases in funding, Limpopo psychiatrists have failed to define, let alone cure, the causes of mental problems.

While it appears modern day psychiatry is scientific, it still uses brutal psychiatric treatments and has a total absence of systematic scientific approach to mental health. The lack of any real science for diagnosing mental illness by psychiatrist doctors adds to psychiatry's already bad reputation. A psychiatric assessment in Limpopo by a psychiatric doctor is nothing except dangerous guesswork at the expense of their Limpopo mental health patient.

How Does a Limpopo Psychiatrist Diagnose Mental Disorders?

Across South Africa and in Limpopo, psychiatrists use a list of manufactured mental disorders to compare a patient against. The most commonly used list of disorders used for psychiatric diagnosis is in a book called the Diagnostic Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM). In 1952 this book only contained 112 mental disorders but has increased dramatically to 374 in 1994, and is still on the rise today. WHY?

A study published by university public health researchers in April 2006, revealed that every psychiatric expert connected to the development of the mood disorders listed in the DSM-IV - before or after the book was published - had financial ties to pharmaceutical drug companies. This report was the first to officially document the wide-ranging financial conflict of interest between the pharmaceutical companies, psychiatrists, and other mental health personnel responsible for the development of the manual. In other words, the Diagnostic Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders is just a bundle of items the mental health industry can bill for.

What You Need to Know About Psychiatric Evaluations in Limpopo

Represented as diagnostic tools, the DSM and other similar lists of "mental disorders" are not only used to assess mental illnesses and prescribe treatment in Limpopo, but are also used to modify school education and make court decisions, such as in disputes of child custody and much more. Yet this diagnostic system involves no science whatsoever, despite large fortunes of Limpopo taxpayer's money being poured into psychiatry in South Africa. If you receive a psychiatric evaluation or test by a Limpopo psychiatrist and pay a visit to another psychiatrist in Limpopo Province, the likelihood is that both psychiatric doctors will give different evaluations and prescribe different treatments. Psychiatrists and psychologists base their assessments on what they believe is wrong with a patient and NOT on any scientific cause. They treat a list of symptoms and NOT real causes.

Need a Limpopo Psychiatrist for Psychiatric Treatment?

Psychiatrist in Limpopo for Psychiatric Treatments and ServicesBy means of unscientific diagnoses and labelling, easy seizure and commitment laws and brutal, depersonalizing practices, millions of people around the world fall into the coercive system of psychiatry every year. And too many governments and individuals make the assumption that psychiatrists know what they are talking about and provide mental healing, when in fact they don't.

Questions used by Limpopo psychiatric doctors, for a patient's mental health evaluation, are not reliable to diagnose any psychiatric condition. If you visit a local psychiatrist in the Limpopo area you will usually get a brief consultation without making any physical examination, with an outcome where you are told what is wrong with you. A psychiatric report by a psychologist or psychiatrist advising a course of psychiatric treatment is not based on any valid scientific diagnosis. Before taking any medication or agreeing to any psychiatric therapy by a psychiatrist in Limpopo, 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.
