Need a Psychiatric Assessment by a North West Psychiatrist?
It is important for you to understand that as a whole, psychiatry in North West consists not of methods of healing people, but of harmful practices that no moral 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 in North West, psychiatrists have failed to define, let alone cure, the causes of mental health problems.
While there is an apparency that psychiatry in this modern day is scientific, it remains to use psychiatric procedures and treatments that are brutal and has complete absence of any systematic approach to mental health that is scientific. The absence of any actual science to diagnose mental illness by psychiatric doctors adds to the growing bad reputation psychiatry has already. A psychiatric evaluation in North West by psychiatric physicians is nothing but dangerous guessing to the harm of their North West mental health patients.
How Does a North West Psychiatrist Diagnose Mental Disorders?
Throughout South Africa and in North West, psychiatrists use a list of made up mental disorders to compare against their patients. A list of mental disorders most commonly used by psychiatrists for diagnosing psychiatric illness is in a book called the Diagnostic Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (also known as the DSM). In 1952 this book only contained 112 mental disorders but has increased greatly to 374 in 1994, and is still increasing today. WHY?
A university study by public health researchers that was published back in April 2006 revealed that every psychiatric expert involved in the development of the mood disorders listed in the DSM-IV - before or after the book was published - had financial links to pharmaceutical drug companies. This revealing report was the first to officially document the wide-sweeping financial conflict of interest between pharmaceutical companies, psychiatrists, and other mental health personnel responsible for the manual's development. To put it another way, the DSM Diagnostic Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders is just a bundle of items that psychiatry and the mental health industry can charge you or your insurance company for.
What You Need to Know About Psychiatric Assessments in North West
Represented as diagnostic tools, the DSM and other similar lists of "mental disorders" are not just used to assess someone's mental health or illness and prescribe psychiatric treatments in North West, but are also used to modify school education and influence court decisions, such as in child custody disputes and much more. Yet there is no science whatsoever to this diagnostic system, despite large sums of North West taxpayer's money being poured into South African psychiatry. If you are given a psychiatric test, assessment, or evaluation by a North West psychiatrist and pay a visit to a different psychiatrist in North West Province; chances are both psychiatric doctors will give different evaluations and prescribe different treatments. Both psychologists and psychiatrists base their psychiatric assessments on what they believe are wrong with their patients and NOT on any scientific cause. They treat a list of symptoms and NOT any real cause for mental illness.
