As it is was revealed in February 2013, NHS bosses allowed the world’s biggest drugs firm’s’ lobbying company, to draft a report shaping our future health policy, we must consider the very real danger of the abuse of our mental health for profit.
Mental consumers are sought everywhere- schools, prisons, hospitals, police stations, prisons, even the homeless sleeping rough are hounded.
By 2016 Cameron announces on national news 1 in 10 children suffer from a diagnosable mental disorder.
And all media promote the outing of ‘mental health’ issues.
And it is encouraged to discuss your mental issues, which then become a disability and enable the state to control the citizen and make him a pharma cash cow.
In 2011 FOI notices revealed hundreds of instances of hospitality, worth several hundred thousand pounds from drug giants.
Of conferences for NHS staff in Sydney, Mauritius, Las Vegas.
We are fed by the media, that the recently created, and now accepted without question phenomena of ‘self harm’, has seen a 45% increase in boys, all ripe for medication.
Mere social conduct disorders are now classed as mental disorders to treat with a different expensive drug.
In America half of foster children are on prescribed drugs.
One in 15 Americans at 18 now are labelled with a mental disorder.
See Robert Whitaker’s ‘Anatomy of an Epidemic’ and how the label of a disorder rather than helping has destroyed lives.
A and E departments received 30 million for mental health, funding is in place, for mental health referrals, in police stations, and schools.
We have an over supply of NHS mental health ‘professionals’ and 375 curtesy of America, mental disorders.
Medicalisation of social/ behavioural problems is a huge ever growing market for the Pharma Industry.
‘Self-harm’ is usefully medicated by expensive anti-psychotic drugs…
The Mirror revealed, 62 Tory MPs have links with Private Health.
Disorders make profit and control our autonomy, and society.
In 2005, the FDA issued an extraordinary “Public Health Advisory” cautioned against the risks, associated with, the whole new generation of antidepressants, including, Prozac, and its knock offs, Zoloft, Paxil, Luvox, Celexa, and Lexapro, as well as Wellbutrin, Effexor, Serzone, and Remeron.
The warning followed a public hearing, in which, dozens of family members and victims testified of increased violence, and suicide after their use.
Despite this, and research studies showing anti-depressants were only slightly more effective, than a placebo.
Which is why Prozac is not licensed in Germany and does not satisfy NICE effectiveness guidelines.
This less that clinically required beneficial effect could in any event be due to research and conferences, being funded by the drug companies, research methods design to show advantages, and positive effects being published more than negative ones.
Yet despite this in 2007, there were 34 million prescriptions for anti-depressants and more than 40 million people are estimated to have taken Prozac since 1988.
The latest danger of anti depressant and hidden side effects, reported in the Guardian, on 17 th September 2015 http://www.theguardian.com/science/2015/sep/16/seroxat-study-harmful-effects-young-people
‘Experts’ know little of how our brains work and even less as to how drugs affect this working and our physical health, particularly, in the long term.
And therefore can know little about how antidepressants work.
The huge flaw is that no test, can measure the amount of serotonin in a living brain.
So ‘experts’ do not know what is a low, or normal level of serotonin in a normal brain and are working blind with adjustments by medication.
And there is little evidence, that depression is caused by a serotonin shortage per se and many studies contradict this theory of depression but are hidden .
And in today’s desperate times, it is more likely not pathological, but a normal reaction to uncertainty, debt and stressful abusive employment and education, and our survival of the fittest society .
Children and adult mental health services and other NHS mental health services consist of diagnosis and then usually straight onto medication.
But the effectiveness is not known, and is not monitored, and there are no scientific controls so the adequacy of services and drugs which cost billions cannot be judged.
So we have a multibillion pound industry, which by funding research, media and government, can create an ever increasing market, voluntary, and enforced, under the threat of care orders, if under 16, and, then mental capacity act orders if over.
Already half our population has been put on prescribed drugs.
1 in 15 Americans, reach adulthood with a mental disorder.
Do we really want to follow ?
The Mental Capacity Act 05 allows the state, to enforce medication, on effectively anyone, the experts, deem ‘incapable, of making a decision in respect to their medication.
And the Act, has a frighteningly vague, all expansive definition of ‘incapacity’, which systemically, is made, impossible to oppose.
Worse still ,The Medicines for Human Use (Clinical Trials) Regulations 2004, which regulates the conduct of clinical trials on medicinal products, allows a legal representative, (a person not connected with the conduct of the trial), to consent to the participation of ‘incapable’ adults, in medical research, currently, very little is known as to how these representatives make their decisions.
So it appears, those deemed ‘incapable’ under the MCA and that is potential millions can be used as guinea pigs by profit hungry drug companies.
Most alarming is the fact there is no central check, or control on prescription drugs.
GPs are politicised and commercialised. They do not have to comply with conditions of drug licences and often prescribe off- label.
We as a nation are now hooked on antidepressants, statins, and, even painkillers http://www.dailymail.co.uk/health/article-2774300/GPs-creating-nation-hooked-painkillers-Addictions-codeine-morphine-drugs-reached-dangerous-levels.html
Mental health, is the perfect business model, for present, and future profit particularly as it is being increasingly enforced by the MCA,and, supported by academics, NHS and media.
All financed and controlled by government.
