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

Searching for an Adult or Child Psychiatrist in Mpumalanga?

Psychiatrists in Mpumalanga, South AfricaIf you are seeking the psychiatric services of a psychiatrist doctor in Mpumalanga you may want to think again; here's why. In South Africa today, our society has greatly progressed in many fields. But at the same time there are many ways in which South Africa, and more locally Mpumalanga, has not progressed at all well. Education is declining rapidly. Crime is on the increase. Treatments of drug addiction have failed completely, creating further addiction to more dangerous drugs. The news headlines in local cities and towns throughout Mpumalanga Province and around the world continue to report massive incidences of irrational and psychotic acts of violence which is not understood as to motive. Yet in our educated and progressive era, treatment of the problems of the mind remains an area of no real understanding and ignorance. WHY?

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

Need a Psychiatric Test by an Mpumalanga Psychiatrist?

Mpumalanga Psychiatrist for Evaluation, Test, Assessment, or DiagnosisIt is important for you to understand that psychiatry and the psychiatric field as a whole consists, not of methods of healing people, but of harmful treatments that no moral professional in medicine 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, Mpumalanga psychiatrists have failed to define, let alone cure, the causes of mental health problems.

While there is an apparency that modern day psychiatry is scientific, it remains to use brutal psychiatric procedures and treatments and has a complete absence of any systematic scientific approach to mental health. The absence of any actual science for diagnosing mental illness by psychiatric doctors adds to the growing poor reputation psychiatry already has. A psychiatric assessment in Mpumalanga by psychiatric physicians is nothing but dangerous guesswork to the harm of their Mpumalanga mental health patients.

How Does an Mpumalanga Psychiatrist Diagnose Mental Disorders?

Throughout South Africa and in Mpumalanga, psychiatrists use a list of made up mental disorders to compare a patient against. The most commonly used list of disorders used for diagnosing psychiatric illness is in a book called the Diagnostic Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (also known as the 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 university study by public health researchers published in April 2006, revealed that every psychiatric expert involved in 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-sweeping financial conflict of interest between pharmaceutical companies, psychiatrists, and other mental health personnel responsible for the manual's development. In other words, the DSM Diagnostic Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders is just a bundle of items the mental health industry can bill you or your insurance company for.

What You Need to Know About Psychiatric Assessments in Mpumalanga

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

Need an Mpumalanga Psychiatrist for Psychiatric Treatment?

Psychiatrist in Mpumalanga for Psychiatric Treatments and ServicesThrough the use of unscientific diagnoses and labelling, easy seizure and commitment laws and brutal, dehumanizing treatments, millions of people around the world and in Mpumalanga 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 do not.

Questions used by Mpumalanga 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 Mpumalanga area you will more than likely get a quick psychiatric consultation without making any physical examination whatsoever, with an outcome where you are told what is wrong with you. A psychiatric report by a psychologist or psychiatrist advising any course of psychiatric therapy or treatment is not based on any valid scientific diagnosis. Before taking any prescribed psychiatric medication or agreeing to any mental health therapy by a psychiatrist in Mpumalanga, ask them what physical checks they are going to perform to diagnose you. The probability is that the doctor won't perform any physical check, simply because they don't know what causes mental illness.
