Local Mental Health Hospitals in Northern Cape

Psychiatric Hospitals in Northern CapeMental institutions, hospitals and psychiatric care clinics in Northern Cape are establishments that focus on harmful procedures to "correct" psychiatric disorders in their patients.

Mental health hospitals haven't really progressed from those of the early 1800s. Modern psychiatric institutions in Northern Cape may have deceivingly masked their hospital wards with medical authenticity - using sophisticated modern looking apparatus and white-coated clinical staff in a hospital setting - but instead of being beaten and chained, mental patients are given high dosages of medication - and if a patient protests or resists is forcefully restrained and sedated against their will. None of this of course is of any health 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 to a local Northern Cape mental ward can be worse than being placed in prison, since without trial, you can lose your rights, be forced to receive mental treatments involuntarily and remain hospitalised indefinitely; all on a psychiatric doctor's say so. And if you want to know what it's like to be a patient in a modern psychiatric hospital in Northern Cape, ask anyone who has been misfortunate of being a patient in one. So, if you are looking for a private or government mental hospital in Northern Cape to admit yourself or another; think again.

Psychiatric Tests in Northern Cape Mental Hospitals

Northern Cape Psychiatric Hospitals Assessments, Tests and DiagnosisConsidering the huge funding of government psychiatric facilities in Northern Cape using taxpayer's money and the hefty health insurance payouts to private mental hospitals in the province - for patient treatment - just how safe and effective are these mental health services in Northern Cape hospitals?

Well let's consider this important fact for a moment. All psychiatric tests, evaluations, assessments, diagnoses, treatments and therapies in psychiatric clinics in Northern Cape are NOT based on science, although deceptively made to seem like they are. When you receive a mental assessment in a hospital in Northern Cape, or any other mental health clinic for that matter, you are being diagnosed by psychiatric doctor and treated by clinical staff based on invalid "science". You will endure mental treatments based on what they "believe" is wrong with you. There are NO genuine biological medical tests in any Northern Cape psychiatric hospital or clinic that can honestly reveal any mental disorder in a patient. If you are told otherwise you are being lied to and you should turn to real professional medical advice, (not from a psychiatrist).

With no real science to base any psychiatric assessment or treatment on, mental patients face many dangers from a lack of scientific understanding of mental health disorders, not only in local psychiatric facilities in Northern Cape but nationally and internationally.

Today, many medical failures and abuses take place throughout psychiatric institutions in the Northern Cape Province, as well as across South Africa and worldwide. If you think you should admit yourself or a family member to a nearby Northern Cape psychiatric hospital you should know that some of the most inhumane human rights violations are made inside government funded and privately owned mental hospitals. Instead of receiving appropriate medical care, psychiatric patients can be detained against their will, locked up in isolation, restrained, beaten, forcibly drugged, sexually abused, experimented upon, and denied genuine medical attention.

Northern Cape Psychiatric Hospital Services and Treatments

Psychiatric Hospitals in Northern Cape Mental Health Treatments and ServicesIn mental health clinics and psychiatric facilities in Northern Cape there is no genuine mental healing. Psychiatric disorders are commonly masked with strong mind-changing drugs and medications as well as mental health treatments that are brutally invasive. The therapies and procedures 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 mental health hospitals.

Psychiatric procedures and therapies used in Northern Cape mental hospitals

Receiving lucrative health insurance payouts and government funding, local government and private psychiatric clinics in Northern Cape are able to generate massive incomes for mental health services that don't work. Regardless of patient status: inpatient, outpatient or needing emergency psychiatric treatment, the basis of any treatment for mental health problems is the same - masking of symptoms and no permanent cure. Psychiatric services offered in Northern Cape clinics and wards use force to overwhelm the mental problems of a patient. These therapies suppress the symptoms of mental anguish, they don't cure mental disease. The following are mental health services one can expect in a psychiatric hospital, ward, clinic, or home:

  • ADD/ADHD Treatments in Northern Cape

Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) are most often treated with powerful psychiatric drugs that have serious side-effects. See more on ADHD/ADD.

  • (ECT) Electro Convulsive Therapy in Northern Cape

Electroshock therapy shoots up to 460 volts of electricity into a patient's brain; based on an unproven theory that it "resets" the brain. This theory has never been scientifically proven. See more on ECT.

  • Treating Mental Disease using Psychosurgery

Psychosurgery, such as the lobotomy, involves cutting-up and removing pieces of a patient's brain to "treat" so-called mental disease, but the end result is the same - brain damage. See more on Psychosurgery.

  • Brain Implants: The New Psychiatric Procedure for Behavioural Disorders

Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) involves passing wires through the skull into the patient's brain. Institutions are experimenting with these procedures on "mentally" ill patients. See more on Deep Brain Stimulation.


  • Schizophrenia Treatment in Northern Cape

Schizophrenia is usually treated with harmful antipsychotics despite their proven risks and studies showing patient improvement after they stop taking them. See more on Schizophrenia.

  • Bipolar Disorder Treatment in Northern Cape

Bipolar is treated with mood stabilising drugs to "balance" a chemical imbalance in the brain. No scientific test can prove this chemical imbalance theory. See more on "brain-chemical imbalance".

  • Obsessive Compulsive Disorders (OCD), Anxiety, Depression, Etc.

Today, psychiatric disorder diagnoses in mental clinics will almost always result in receiving a prescription for medication. But are these drugs the "miracle pill" hospital psychiatrists say they are? Actually, no. These drugs produce many damaging side-effects. Read more on psych drug side effects.

  • Drug and Alcohol Addiction Psychiatric Rehabilitation in Northern Cape

Ironically, psychiatric rehab centres in Northern Cape treat drug and alcohol addiction with substitute drugs and medications that can be just as addictive.

  • Dementia Patient Treatments in Northern Cape Psychiatric Homes

Dementia patients are generally treated with strong mind-altering drugs as well as electroshock "therapy" that sadly causes the premature and unnecessary deaths of elderly patients. Read more on dementia treatments.
