    Unbelievably disgusting. Psychiatry is sick.

    As a former school teacher, my mum had a brief encounter with child psychiatry. She was horrified with what she saw. And this was 15 years ago, so things can only be worse now.

    She went to work in a special school, where “statemented” kids with behavioural problems were sent after they had been removed from mainstream schooling.

    Mum initially saw it as a challenge. Then she realised that 90% of the kids were totally screwed up on Ritalin and other psychiatric drugs. Teaching them anything was an impossibility. Their minds were blown. She left in disgust.
