Looking for an Adult or Child Psychiatrist in North West?

Psychiatrists in North West Province, South AfricaIf you are seeking the psychiatric services of a psychiatrist doctor in North West you may want to think again; here's why. In South Africa today, our society has greatly improved in many areas. But at the same time there are many ways in which South Africa, and more locally North West, has not improved at all well. We have the rapid decline of education, the increase of crime, the complete failure of drug addiction treatments, causing even further addiction to more harmful drugs. The news headlines in local towns and cities throughout North West Province and throughout the world continue to report increasing incidences of irrational and psychotic acts of violence which is not understood as to the motive. Yet in this time of improved educated progression, the treatment of the problems of the mind remains an area of no real understanding and just ignorance. WHY?

Psychiatry worldwide, across South Africa, and local psychiatrists in North West, have never come forth with a science of the mind that actually cures mental illness. Instead, doctors and practitioners of psychiatry in North West use only invasive mental health practices such as electroconvulsive therapy ECT (passing volts of electricity searing through the brain) and prescribing psychiatric drugs that damage the mind. Medical proof shows that psychiatric medication can, and actually does, create killers. Abuse of a sexual nature by mental health therapists is well documented to be very harmful and destructive, but still psychologists and psychiatric doctors sexually abuse their mental patients at a rate that is astounding. They also commit a higher rate of health insurance fraud than any other profession and most psychiatrists come from the lower grades of medical school classes. It's unfortunate but the fact is whatever North West city or town you live; mental health problems in the province are actually made worse by local psychiatrists and psychologists in North West.

Need a Psychiatric Assessment by a North West Psychiatrist?

North West Psychiatrist for Evaluation, Test, Assessment, or DiagnosisIt 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.

Need a North West Psychiatrist for Psychiatric Treatment?

Psychiatrist in North West for Psychiatric Treatments and ServicesThrough the use of unscientific diagnoses and labelling, easy seizure and commitment laws and brutal, dehumanizing treatments, millions of people around the world and in North West fall into the coercive system of psychiatry every year. Unfortunately too many governments and individuals assume that psychiatrists know what they are talking about and provide mental healing, when in fact they do not.

Questions used by North West psychiatric doctors, for mental health evaluations of patients, are not reliable to diagnose any psychiatric condition. If you visit a psychiatrist in the North West area where you live you will most probably receive a quick psychiatric consultation without making any physical examination whatsoever, with an outcome where you are told what is wrong with you. A psychiatric report recommending any course of psychiatric therapy or treatment by a psychologist or psychiatrist is not based on any valid scientific diagnosis. Before taking any prescribed psychiatric medication or agreeing to any mental health therapy by a psychiatrist in North West, ask them what physical examinations they are going to perform to diagnose you. The likelihood is that the doctor won't perform any physical tests, simply because they don't know what causes mental illness.
