Peter Gøtzsche, MD, writes of Victoria's psychiatric regime, in Abolishing Forced Treatment in Psychiatry is an Ethical Imperative 'Garth's family recently moved to another state and took him with them, thus evading the reach of the Victorian Mental Health Act. He is currently being treated as an out-patient on low doses of medication, with no ECT. His family report that his mental state has never been better. Despite the dire claims of his former treating psychiatrists, he has absolutely no signs of psychosis.'
And most tellingly, for the Australian tax payer, 'Niall McLaren has never used ECT. While he was head of department for a total of eight years at two Australian hospitals, ECT wasn’t used at all (McLaren, personal communication). He didn’t bar it, simply made it more difficult for his staff to use it, as they had to justify it by showing there was no alternative. At the same time, the admission rate to the hospital dropped, the average duration of stay dropped and the bed occupancy rate dropped by as much as half. In both hospitals, some time after his appointments had expired and he had moved, ECT was resumed and the bed occupancy rate quickly rose again.' (Peter Gøtzsche, MD)
People must see, it imperative that this Federal Election of 2016, psychiatry must be voted out, and most particularly Victoria.
'Malcolm Turnball -
Why haven't even started to implement the United Nations CRPD as promised, signed & ratified in 2013?
Do you not know that psychotropic drugs are the cause suicide on your local bridge?
Side-effect 'suicide' on the drug websites!
Then I asked another, similar, video question HERE
In my attempts to gain some kind of understanding from politicians, I'm left with only two politicians that openly want to abolish forced psychiatry.
In the NSW Senate, that's Terese Van Lieshout, APP
In Victoria, that's: Glenn Floyd, Independent
That said, I did come across, the Health Australia Party (HAP), that agree that medicine should never be forced.
I am hoping for more solid support for stopping forced & coerced psychiatric treatments, however, I have not received those exact words that give total validation to the harm I and so many psychiatric survivors have suffered, and support and hope for those people still be used as enslaved human laboratory animals by Victoria's horrific Mental Health Act 2014.
The Health Australia Party is once again, the upper house vote, Senate, that's all.
I don't know who to vote for in the lower-house, all I've got is Labor, Liberal, Greens and a pharmacist Independent. None of them, so far, have supported stopping forced psychiatry, in fact they've gone out on a limb to support whitecoats and their horrible torture of us.
There's reasons that parties need to be brave. People subjected to forced psychiatry, who complain about the horrible treatment, don't even get air-play on Community Radio. Instead, all that is allowed are those people who play psychiatry's pet parrots. Even MDs like Peter Gøtzsche, get cut off in 5 minutes by our radio stations, when they validate the suffering of those being abused by the psychiatric regime. TV is very much the same. Internet, however, psychiatric survivors are somewhat free there.
I was encouraged last year Dr. Rachel Carling-Jenkins (DLP Upper House member in Victoria) asked a question about the forced use of Electro Convulsive Therapy. 'My question is directed to Ms Mikakos in her capacity representing the Minister for Mental Health, Martin Foley, and concerns the administration of electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) without informed consent. One advocate became so concerned about the increasing incidence of ECT administered to his son that he appealed directly to the United Nations Committee on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities. A reply from the director of the human rights treaties division directed, and I quote:
I'm hoping the population and all our politicians will eventually see sense and enable the people currently enslaved by psychiatry, as human laboratory specimens, to be free.
Australia must stop enslaving & torturing civilians through Internationally illegal Mental Health Laws.
