Need a Psychiatric Evaluation by a Western Cape Psychiatrist?
It is important for you to fully appreciate that the psychiatric field and psychiatry as a whole consists of, no methods for mentally healing people, but only that of harmful treatments that no morally decent 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 increases in funding, Western Cape psychiatric doctors have failed to define, let alone cure, the causes of mental illness.
While there is an outward appearance that modern psychiatry is scientific, it continues to practice deadly psychiatric procedures and treatments and has a complete absence of any scientific approach to mental health. The absence of any actual science for assessing and diagnosing mental illness by psychiatrists adds to the ever increasing poor reputation psychiatry already has. A psychiatric evaluation in Western Cape by a psychiatric physician is nothing but harmful guesswork that endangers the mental health of Western Cape psychiatric patients.
How Does a Western Cape Psychiatrist Diagnose Mental Disorders?
Throughout South Africa and Western Cape, psychiatrists use a list of invented mental illnesses to compare a patient against. The most commonly used list of illnesses used for assessing a psychiatric disorder is in a book called the DSM Diagnostic Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders. In 1952 this book contained only 112 mental disorders but has dramatically increased to 374 in 1994, and is still increasing today. WHY?
A study by university public health researchers that was published in April 2006, revealed all of the psychiatric experts involved in the development of the mood disorders listed in the DSM-IV - before or after the book was published - had financial connections to pharmaceutical drug companies. This health report was the first to officially document the sweeping extent of financial conflict of interest between pharmaceutical companies, psychiatrists, and other mental health personnel responsible for the development of the DSM manual. In other words, the Diagnostic Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders is just a bunch of listed items the mental health industry can charge you or your insurance company, or the government (taxpayer) for.
What You Need to Know About Psychiatric Assessments in Western Cape
Represented as diagnostic tools, the Diagnostic Statistical Manual and other similar lists of "mental disorders" are not only used to evaluate mental illness and prescribe psychiatric treatments in Western Cape, but are also used to modify education in schools and make court decisions, such as with child custody cases and more. Yet this system of mental health testing contains no science whatsoever, despite large sums of Western Cape taxpayer's money being poured into psychiatry in South Africa. If you receive a psychiatric evaluation, test, or assessment by a Western Cape psychiatrist and visit another psychiatrist in the Province, the high probability is that both Western Cape psychiatric doctors will give different results and prescribe different mental therapies or treatments. Psychiatrists and psychologists base their assessments on what they think or believe are wrong with their patients and NOT on any scientific cause. They treat a list of symptoms and NOT real causes of mental illness.
