Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) are generally treated in clinics with psychiatric drugs that have damaging side-effects. See more on ADHD/ADD.
Electroshock therapy (ECT) - shoots up to 460 volts of electricity through a patient's brain, all based on the idea that it "resets" the brain but this is scientifically unproven. See more on ECT treatment.
Psychosurgery treatment such as the lobotomy involves cutting-up and removing pieces of a patient's brain to "treat" mental disease, but the result is the same - brain damage. See more on Psychosurgery.
Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) involves passing wires through the skull and into the brain. Mental institutions are experimenting with these on the "mentally" ill. See more on Deep Brain Stimulation.
Schizophrenia is usually treated with harmful antipsychotic medications despite their proven dangers and despite studies that show that when patients stop taking them, they improve. See more on Schizophrenia.
Bipolar Disorder is treated with damaging mood stabilizer drugs to "balance" a chemical imbalance in the brain. There is no scientific test to prove a chemical imbalance. See more on "brain-chemical imbalance".
Today, a diagnosis in a North West psychiatric clinic almost always results in a prescription for a psychiatric drug. But these drugs are NOT the "miracle pill" hospital psychiatrists say they are. These drugs come with multiple dangerous side effects that are sometimes permanent. See more on psychiatric drug side effects.
