Local Mental Institutions in Mpumalanga

Psychiatric Hospitals in MpumalangaMental hospitals, institutions, wards and psychiatric clinics in Mpumalanga are facilities that focus on using harmful procedures to "correct" mental disorders in their patients.

Mental hospitals haven't developed far from those of the early 1800s. Modern psychiatric hospitals in Mpumalanga may have deceptively cloaked their hospital wards with medical legitimacy - using white-coated hospital staff and sophisticated modern-looking equipment in a clinical setting - but instead of being chained and beaten, psychiatric patients are given high doses of medications - and if a patient resists or protests is forcefully restrained and sedated against their will. None of this however is of any benefit to the patient, physically or mentally - but still, even the top psychiatrists in the world admit they cannot "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 admitted in a local Mpumalanga mental institution can be worse than imprisonment, as with no trial, you can lose all of your rights, be forced to undergo involuntarily psychiatric treatments and remain hospitalised indefinitely, all on the say-so of a psychiatric doctor. And if you really want to know what it's like to be a mental patient in a modern psychiatric facility in Mpumalanga, ask anyone who has had the misfortune of being in one. So, if you are looking for a local government or private psychiatric hospital in Mpumalanga to admit yourself or another; you might want to think again.

Psychiatric Assessments in Mpumalanga Mental Hospitals

Mpumalanga Psychiatric Hospitals Assessments, Tests and DiagnosisDespite the monumental sums of taxpayer's money being pumped into government psychiatric facilities in Mpumalanga and hefty health insurance payouts to the private psychiatric hospitals in the province - for patient treatment - just how safe and effective are these mental health treatments in Mpumalanga hospitals?

Well, consider this for a moment. The evaluations, assessments, tests, diagnoses and treatments in psychiatric hospital clinics in Mpumalanga are NOT scientific, although they are made to seem like they are. When you receive a psychiatric evaluation in a mental hospital in Mpumalanga, or any other mental facility for that matter, you are being tested by psychiatric doctors and treated by medical staff based on invalid "science". You will undergo mental health procedures or take psychiatric medications based on what they "believe" is wrong with you. There are NO genuine physical or biological medical tests in any Mpumalanga psychiatric hospital or clinic that can honestly reveal any mental disorder in a patient. If you are told the contrary you are being lied to and should seek real professional medical advice, (not from a psychiatrist).

With no science to base psychiatric diagnoses and treatments on, patients in mental health facilities face many dangers due to a lack of scientific understanding of mental disorders, not only in local psychiatric clinics in Mpumalanga but nationally and internationally.

Today, many medical errors and abuses occur throughout psychiatric institutions in Mpumalanga province, as well as nationally in South Africa and worldwide. If you are thinking of admitting yourself or a family member to a nearby Mpumalanga psychiatric hospital you should know that some of the worst human rights violations are perpetrated inside privately owned and government funded mental hospitals. Instead of receiving comfort and appropriate medical care, mental hospital patients can be detained against their will, locked up in isolation, forcibly drugged, restrained, beaten, sexually abused, experimented upon, and denied genuine medical health care.

Mpumalanga Psychiatric Hospital Services and Treatments

Psychiatric Hospitals in Mpumalanga Mental Health Treatments and ServicesIn mental hospitals and psychiatric facilities in Mpumalanga there is no mental healing. Psychiatric disorders are commonly masked with strong mind-altering medications and mental health procedures that are brutally invasive. The therapies and treatments may alleviate a patient's "symptoms" but they don't address the real cause.

In a survey of medical doctors in 2002, when asked to distinguish between a physical illness and a "mental disorder", 65% of non-psychiatric physicians said that clinical diagnostic testing and physical examinations should be used first, to rule out physical problems - something that is omitted in psychiatric hospitals.

Psychiatric therapies and treatments used in Mpumalanga mental hospitals

Receiving payouts by health insurance companies and government funding, local private and government psychiatric hospitals in Mpumalanga are able to generate massive incomes for psychiatric services that don't work. Regardless of patient status; whether an inpatient, outpatient or needing emergency psychiatric treatment at a mental clinic in Mpumalanga, the basis of any treatment for mental health problems is the same - mask the symptoms and no cure. Psychiatric services performed in Mpumalanga psychiatric wards use force to overwhelm a patient's mental problems. These therapies suppress the symptoms of mental troubles, they don't cure mental disease. The following are mental health treatments and services one can expect in a psychiatric hospital, ward, clinic, or home:

  • ADD/ADHD Treatments in Mpumalanga
