Dr. Michael Corry is a psychiatrist who practices in Ireland. Unlike many other psychiatrists he refuses to play the ‘mental illness’ game. What is the mental illness game? It is the situation whereby the Pharma/Psych alliance gets their hands on someone who is upset, distressed or in some way not coping with something in their life. They then put them on to antidepressants. When they succumb to the psychotropic ‘medicine’ and start to act strangely (or worse) they are pronounced ‘mentally ill’.
Then the expensive and destructive ‘treatments’ really start. It leads to a very profitable and successful career, as long as one is not bothered by such niceties as ethics, or the concept of doing the right and decent thing. You certainly wouldn’t want to have read the Hippocratic Oath.
Dr. Corry is a lovely bloke. I met him a few years ago in Ireland and we had a beer together. He was appalled at the shallow and self serving behaviour of his profession. He was determined to have no part in the drugging for profit business and to genuinely care for those people who came to him for help.
Dr. Corry has also spent a considerable amount of time and effort fighting other psychiatric horrors such as the frying of human brains via ECT… ElectroShock Torture Therapy.
This has understandably not endeared him to his colleagues. It is much easier to do what is wrong if everyone else is doing it also. The first person to stand up and say “this is wrong and I will not participate” will be shot down quick smart.
Thus it is with Dr. Corry.
I have just received the following from Ireland and I urge you to read it and spread the word. You may submit objections via the address at the bottom.
There is a need for good people to stand up here.

Human sustainability: the key to emotional health
Professor of Psychiatry charges Dr Michael Corry at Medical Council
A senior psychiatrist, Professor Timothy Dinan of University College, Cork, has laid a complaint against Dr Michael Corry at the Medical Council. The complaint concerns Michael Corry’s statements about the role of SSRI antidepressants in the murder/suicide of Sebastian Creane and Shane Clancy.
Dinan, who is an enthusiastic advocate of SSRIs and SNRIs and has declared his close relations with several drug companies, accuses Dr Corry of “”statements regarding the pharmacology of antidepressants” and of making “statements regarding a diagnosis without ever seeing the patient”.
Dinan has joined in a previous attempt to chill discussion of the effects of antidepressants. Signing himself as Timothy Dinan, MD, PhD, FRCPsych, FRCPI, Professor of Psychiatry, University College Cork, the academic was one of six professors of psychiatry who penned a letter published in the Irish Times on 16 November 2006 demanding the resignation of the then Minister for Mental Health, Tim O’Malley, for two reasons.
One, O’Malley had dared to suggest that many everyday difficulties of life were being mis-labeled as ‘clinical depression’. Secondly, he had dared to suggest, with good reason, that the alleged benefits of medications used to treat mental illness cannot be proven scientifically in the way that other medications can. Both suggestions are cardinal sins for those who rule the world of psychiatry, and whose word is law among the students they teach.
WE MUST DEFEND MICHAEL CORRY’S RIGHT TO SPEAK OUT!
To defend Dr Michael Corry we need other health professionals to stand by him.
We appeal to doctors and nurses, especially psychiatric nurses, together with psychotherapists and counsellors, who are concerned at this attack on the right of medical professionals to oppose the monopoly of bio-psychiatry and are willing to stand up and be counted.

The most chilling part of Professor Timothy Dinan’s complaint is that Corry made “statements regarding the pharmacology of antidepressants”.
If such a complaint is upheld as valid, neither Dr Corry nor any other doctor registered with the Medical Council will ever again be able to ‘make a statement’ on the action of a drug such as Seroxat or Lexapro — or, by extension, of any drug.
Are you willing to allow this to happen?
