Psychiatric Ties to Big Pharma

American Psychiatric Association (APA) Under Fire Again For Pharma Ties
Watchdog Releases More Damning Evidence Against APA With Undercover Footage from Psychiatrists’ Offices

LOS ANGELES: Documents obtained by U.S. News and World Report confirm that the American Psychiatric Association failed to fully disclose the substantial pharmaceutical ties of its task force members, charged with updating and expanding psychiatry’s Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM), comprised of subjective checklists of symptoms which are then used to categorize new “mental disorders” and bill insurance companies.  

The psychiatric watchdog, Citizens Commission on Human Rights (CCHR), says the scandals relating to the DSM, long considered the cash cow of disease mongering, go much deeper than conflicts of interest or failure to disclose pharmaceutical ties, and the group has released a new video “”> featuring undercover footage of psychiatrists using the DSM to randomly dole out powerful and dangerous drugs to unsuspecting patients. 

The video, including interviews with experts explaining how the DSM lacks any scientific basis, also contains footage of psychiatrists attending the annual American Psychiatric Association convention admitting that psychiatry has no physical tests to diagnose psychiatric disorders, no chemical imbalance tests, and no idea how to cure anyone.

The Citizens Commission on Human Rights is an international psychiatric watchdog group co-founded in 1969 by the Church of Scientology and Dr. Thomas Szasz, Professor of Psychiatry Emeritus, to investigate and expose psychiatric violations of human rights.
