Looking for Psychiatrists in Northern Cape?

Are you searching for psychiatrists in Northern Cape or a psychiatrist that offers psychiatric services in Northern Cape Province? If you are looking for an adult or child psychiatric doctor to treat a mental disorder such as ADHD Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, ADD Attention Deficit Disorder, anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, or any other mental health disorder, you should first take a look at what treatments are used by Northern Cape psychiatrists, as well as what the effects of those psychiatric treatments are.

Since 1969, the Citizens Commission on Human Rights (CCHR) has been involved in the reform of the mental health industry, making sure psychologists, psychiatrists, and psychiatric hospitals in Northern Cape are held accountable for harm caused to their patients, not only locally in the province but South Africa and internationally.

Searching for an Adult or Child Psychiatrist in Northern Cape?

Psychiatrists in Northern Cape, South AfricaIf you plan on using the services of a psychiatric doctor in Northern Cape you may want to think again; here's why. In modern times South Africa has greatly improved in many areas. But at the same time there are many areas in which South Africa, and locally in the Northern Cape, that have not made improvements. We have the increase of crime, the decline of education, and the complete failure of treatments for drug addiction that cause further addiction to other harmful drugs. The headlines in the news of local towns and cities in the Northern Cape Province and throughout the world continue to report on the increasing numbers of psychotic and irrational acts of violence and of which no motive is understood. Yet in this time of improved progression, the treatment of the problems of the mind remains an area of no genuine understanding but just plain ignorance. WHY?

Psychiatry worldwide, throughout South Africa, and local psychiatrists in Northern Cape have never come forward with any science of the mind that actually cures mental illness. Instead, practitioners and doctors of psychiatry in Northern Cape use invasive practices for psychiatric disorders such as passing volts of electricity searing through the brain from the use of ECT electroconvulsive therapy and prescribe mind damaging psychiatric medications. Medical proof demonstrates that psychiatric medication can, and does, create killers. Abuse of a sexual nature is well documented to be very harmful and destructive, but still, psychologists and psychiatrists sexually abuse their patients at an astounding rate. They also commit a higher rate of health insurance fraud than any other profession and most psychiatrists come from the lower grades of medical school classes. It's unfortunate but the fact is that whatever Northern Cape area you live; mental health problems in the province are made worse by psychiatrists in Northern Cape.

Need a Psychiatric Diagnosis by a Northern Cape Psychiatrist?

Northern Cape Psychiatrist for Evaluation, Test, Assessment, or DiagnosisIt is important for you to understand that as a whole, psychiatry in Northern Cape consists not of methods of healing people, but of medical practices that no decent 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 funding increases for mental health in Northern Cape, psychiatrists have failed to define, let alone cure, the causes of psychiatric health problems.

While there is an apparency that psychiatry is scientific in this modern day, it continues using mental treatments and procedures that are actually brutal and has a complete absence of any systematic approach of the treatment of mental conditions that is scientific. The absence of any real science to assess and diagnose mental illness by psychiatric physicians adds to the bad reputation psychiatry already has. A psychiatric evaluation in Northern Cape by psychiatric doctor is nothing but dangerous guessing that harms their Northern Cape mental patients.

How Does a Northern Cape Psychiatrist Assess a Mental Disorder?

Throughout South Africa and the Northern Cape, psychiatrists use a list of made up mental disorders to compare their patients against. The list of disorders most commonly used for psychiatric diagnosis by psychiatrists is in a manual called the Diagnostic Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM). In 1952 this book contained only 112 mental disorders but in 1994 it greatly increased to 374 psychiatric illnesses, and is still increasing today. WHY?

A university study by public health researchers which was published back in April of 2006 revealed that every psychiatric expert that was involved in the development of the mood disorders listed in the DSM-IV - before or after the DSM was published - had monetary ties to pharmaceutical companies. This report was the first to officially reveal and document the wide-sweeping financial conflict of interest between psychiatrists, pharmaceutical companies, and other mental health personnel responsible for the development of the DSM manual. To put it another way, the Diagnostic Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders is just a bunch of items that psychiatric doctors and the mental health industry as a whole can charge you or your insurance company for.

What You Need to Know About Psychiatric Diagnoses in Northern Cape

Represented as diagnostic tools, the DSM (Diagnostic Statistical Manual) and other similarly related lists of "mental disorders" used in the Northern Cape are not just used to evaluate a patient's mental health and prescribe psychiatric treatments, but are also used to modify the province's school education system and influence court decisions, such as in child custody disputes. Yet there is no science whatsoever to this diagnostic system, despite large amounts of taxpayer's money in Northern Cape being poured into psychiatry in South Africa. If you are given a psychiatric evaluation, test, or assessment by a Northern Cape psychiatrist and get a second, third or fourth opinion from other psychiatrists in Northern Cape Province; more than likely all psychiatric doctors will give different diagnoses and prescribe different treatments. Both psychologists and psychiatrists base their mental diagnoses of patients on what they believe are wrong with their patients and NOT on any scientific cause. They treat a list of created disorders and symptoms and NOT any real cause of a mental illness.

Need a Northern Cape Psychiatrist for Psychiatric Treatment?

Psychiatrist in Northern Cape for Psychiatric Treatments and ServicesThrough the use of unscientific tests and psychiatric labelling, easy seizure and commitment laws and brutal dehumanizing treatments, every year millions of people around the world and in Northern Cape fall into psychiatry's coercive system. It's unfortunate but too many governments and individuals assume that psychiatrists know what they are talking about and provide mental healing, when in fact they do not.

Questions used by Northern Cape psychiatric doctors, for patient mental health assessments, are not reliable to diagnose any psychiatric condition. If you visit a local psychiatrist in the Northern Cape area where you live you will most likely receive a psychiatric consultation without any physical examination whatsoever, with the result being the psychiatrist telling you what is wrong with you. A psychiatric report recommending any course of psychiatric treatment or therapy by a psychologist or psychiatrist 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 Northern Cape, ask them what physical examinations they are going to perform before they diagnose you. The chances are the mental health physician won't perform any physical tests, simply because they don't know what causes mental illness.
