These are links to a few articles on gun violence and psychiatry from this site. Yes, they’re pretty clearly connected but we live in a world in which it’s members are encouraged to keep their heads up a small, dark, tight canal in the bottom half of the body.

*it is potentially dangerous to come off medications without careful planning. Please be sure to be well educated before undertaking any sort of discontinuation of medications. If your MD agrees to help you do so, do not assume they know how to do it well even if they claim to have experience. They are generally not trained in discontinuation and may not know how to recognize withdrawal issues. A lot of withdrawal issues are misdiagnosed to be psychiatric problems. This is why it’s good to educate oneself and find a doctor who is willing to learn with you as your partner in care.  Really all doctors should always be willing to do this as we are all individuals and need to be treated as such.

AND yes, I could use some compensation for the many 100s of hours I’ve worked with folks  and on this site over the years. Working like we do and not getting any sort of compensation that I might live more comfortably in the face of continued challenges continues to teach us what we’ve learned from psychiatry. We must not be worth it. Let’s change that patterning. If I helped you or a loved one out, please help me back now. thank you.

****We could  use some financial support at the moment! You know, for things like the mortgage so that we can maintain a roof over our heads. Yup. I do this all for no other compensation than  what the readers want to offer in support. Thank you!****

    This post Monica, is incredible. You cite many cogent, relevant issues: Psychiatric drugs cause violence, proven. Doctors really do not know how to withdraw people from these drugs. Blaming mass killings on the “mentally ill” is happening big time and misguided. That is a weak and convenient excuse when facts tell otherwise. People with mental health issues are not by nature violent. However, psych. meds. can and will cause otherwise okay folks to do things such as violence against themselves or others, that they simply would not do.
    Withdrawing from psych. drugs is a new thing in society and needs to be respected, needs education for patients and all doctors. Improperly done, can create problems. But look, who got us into this mess in the first place. Psychiatric and Pharmaceutical mega industries and those licensed professionals prescribing about 80% of these insidious brain altering man/woman made synthetic chemicals. They destroyed my existence and I am desperately trying to recover. Thank you.

    Monica Cassani, thanks for all that you do and have done to inform and educate all people about the issues/side effects/hazards etc. of taking prescribed legal psychiatric/psychoactive “psychiatric” drugs and the inherent dangers of them in total. As you know, Monica, the Psychiatric medical industry is built on the myth that the human brain can have a chemical imbalance and therefore must be “fixed” by synthetic chemical compounds. From day one, these drugs artificially invade the brain and can provide disastrous long term consequences to innocent people. There is absolutely no blood test for “mental illness” and is not quantifiable. The plethora of diagnoses thought up by the psychiatric association are made up terms not backed by science. Further placebos have been proven to work to a high % in studies. The average medication causes 70 adverse side effects, some can be fatal. Pharmaceutical companies/industry are intimately involved at all levels in order to make billions of dollars, to control, influence and protect themselves to be able to continue to develop, manufacture, advertise, and sell these legal drugs. Follow the $$$ trail as this is the bottom line much to the detriment and destruction of perhaps millions of people over time. Lobbyists influence politicians who can influence the FDA, it is all one big cycle and we the people suffer worldwide. Thank you. I am writing a book about my personal experiences and to also look at the big picture as stated above. Monica, I would like to include you as a reference point in this book as well as other leading figures, actually heroes to me.

  3. As usual, brilliant and well said. I found myself shaking my fist at the television over recent characterizations…mental illness indeed. And of course it is also the fault of the internet as we’ve been informed. Since I have been reading you it has somehow been revealed to me how MANY people are taking psych. drugs as my “doctor” refers to them. It is truly…terrifying to think that it becomes such a mechanism for control by the..what shall we call it? “power apparatus”….
    And also? small dark tight canal in the lower part of the body? that is truly one of the best ways I have ever seen that..er…thing…described. Thank you. That just about made my day.
