Searching for an Adult or Child Psychiatrist in Benoni?

Psychiatrist BenoniIf you are searching for local psychiatric services in Benoni you may want to think again; here's why. Today, in South Africa, our society has developed impressively in many areas. However, at the same time there are many ways in which our South African society today, and more locally Benoni, is not as well off. Education is declining at a fast rate. The rate of crime is on a long-term rise. Attempts to treat drug addiction have failed utterly, creating further addiction to more dangerous drugs. Local news headlines in Benoni and towns and cities across South Africa and around the world report increasing numbers of psychotic, irrational acts of violence which have no motive and cannot be understood. Yet in our enlightened time, treatment of the problems of the mind remains an area of dark, fearsome ignorance.

Psychiatrists worldwide, nationwide, and local psychiatrists in Benoni, have never provided a science of the mind that actually cures mental illness. Instead they use unscientific and unproven treatments like electroconvulsive therapy (electric shocking of the brain) and prescribe damaging and intensely destructive psychiatric drugs that alter the mind for the worse. Medical evidence establishes that such drugs can, and actually do, create killers. Sexual abuse in therapy is well known to be destructive, yet psychologists and psychiatric doctors sexually abuse their patients at a staggering rate. They commit health insurance fraud at higher rates than any other profession and many come from the dregs of medical school classes. It's a fact that local psychiatric doctors in Benoni actually create even worse mental health problems in the area.

Need a Local Psychiatrist in Benoni for a Psychiatric Assessment?

Psychiatrist in BenoniIt is important to know that psychiatry in Benoni consists, not of methods of healing, but of harmful practices that no self-respecting medical professional 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, psychiatrists in Gauteng have failed to define, let alone cure, the causes of mental problems.

Although the appearance is that modern psychiatry is scientific, it still fumbles around with damaging psychiatric treatments and a complete absence of systematic approach to mental health. The absence of any actual scientific system for diagnosing psychiatric problems by psychiatrists contributes to psychiatry's bad reputation. A psychiatric evaluation in Benoni by a psychiatrist or psychologist is simply nothing but dangerous guesswork to the harm of their Benoni mental health patients.

How Does a Benoni Psychiatrist Diagnose Mental Disorders?

Local psychiatrists in Benoni and South Africa as a whole use a list of so-called mental disorders to compare or judge with against a patient's own symptoms of mental health problems. The most commonly used list of mental disorders for psychiatric diagnosis is compiled in a book called the Diagnostic Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM). In 1952 the DSM listed only 112 entries of mental disorders but the number has increased dramatically to 374 in 1994, and is still increasing today. WHY?

A 2006 study published by university public health researchers revealed that every psychiatric expert involved in the development of the mood disorders listed in the DSM-IV had financial ties with pharmaceutical drug companies, before or after the book was published. This report was the first to officially document the wide-ranging and incestuous financial relationship between psychiatrists, the pharmaceutical companies, and other mental health industry personnel responsible for the manual. In effect, the Diagnostic Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders is a grab bag of items that the mental health industry can charge for.

What You Need to Know About Psychiatric Evaluations in Benoni

Described as diagnostic tools, the DSM or other similarly compiled list of "mental disorders" are not only used to diagnose mental illness and prescribe treatment to Benoni patients, but also to resolve child custody battles, discrimination cases based on alleged psychiatric disability, support court testimony, modify education and much more. Yet there is no science to these diagnostic systems despite huge amounts of Benoni taxpayer's money being poured into local psychiatry. If you have a psychiatric test by a psychiatrist in Benoni and visit a different psychiatric doctor in your area, high chances are both psychiatrists will give different evaluations and prescribe different treatments. Psychologists and Psychiatrists base their evaluations on what they think is wrong with a patient and NOT on any scientific cause. They treat a list of symptoms and NOT real causes.

Need a Benoni Psychiatrist for Psychiatric Treatment?

Best Psychiatrist in BenoniThrough unscientific diagnoses, stigmatizing labelling, easy seizure and commitment laws and brutal, depersonalizing treatments, every year millions around the world fall into psychiatry's coercive system. And too many individuals and governments make the assumption that psychiatrists understand and practice mental healing, when they don't.

The questions used by Benoni psychiatrists for patient mental disorder evaluations are not reliable to diagnose any psychiatric health condition. If you visit a local psychiatrist in the Benoni area you will generally have a brief consultation where you are told what is wrong with you without making any physical examination. A psychiatric report by a psychiatrist or psychologist recommending a course of treatment is not based on any valid diagnosis. Before being given any medication or treatment by a psychiatrist in Benoni, ask them what physical checks they are going to perform to diagnose you. Chances are they won't perform any physical check, simply because they don't know what causes mental illness.
