Watchdog Group Slams Fraser Health Authority’s Early Intervention Program

The Citizens Commission on Human Rights has lambasted The Fraser Health Authority’s Early Psychosis Intervention Program calling it a one-hundred-percent fraud and a further attempt by the psychiatric industry to find more "reasons" to label and drug teenagers in British Columbia schools.

Literature about the program in the form of bus ads and internet sites stigmatize normal teenage behavior as a "mental disorder" and promotes the use of the same drugs that have had 16 government warnings by five different countries on the previously undisclosed dangers of psychiatric drugs. The warnings cited side effects of drug dependence, addiction, mania, hostility, aggression, psychosis, suicide and violence.

CCHR has put together free public service brochures entitled: "Let's Talk about Psychiatry Hooking Your World on Drugs", "The Hoax of Learning and Behavior Disorders" and "How You Can Protect and Preserve your Mental Health".

The brochures warn teenagers and parents of the damage that can be caused through the use of psychiatry and their drugs and also reveal that all drugs, whether cocaine, heroin, or psychiatric drugs, are brain altering. The brochures also point out that mental problems are not inherited. They are not based on your genes or a "chemical imbalance in your brain" - as psychiatrists attempt to make people believe. They are not a physical disease. You cannot look at them under a microscope, brain scan or x-ray.

Leading psychiatric agencies such as the World Psychiatric Association and U.S. National Institute of Mental Health admit that psychiatrists do not know the causes or cures for any mental disorder or what their "treatments" specifically do to the patient. They have only theories and conflicting opinions about the diagnoses and methods, and are lacking any scientific basis for these. As a past president of the World Psychiatric Association stated, "The time when psychiatrists considered that they could cure the mentally ill is gone. In the future, the mentally ill have to learn to live with their illness."

Brian Beaumont, spokesperson for the Vancouver chapter of the Citizens Commission on Human Rights said, "Psychiatrists are the biggest drug pushers there are. The psychiatric industry has invented enough ‘disorders’ to label and drug every normal healthy childhood activity there is. Psychosis, Attention Deficit Disorder, Mathematical Disorder, Writing Disorder, Oppositional Defiance Disorder, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, ad nauseam, are all bogus psychiatric diagnoses aimed at increasing psychiatry's cash cow by creating a false need for their services. This is fraud and child abuse."

Dr. Thomas Szasz, professor of psychiatry emeritus, observes, "There is no blood or other biological test to ascertain the presence or absence of a mental illness, as there is for most bodily diseases."

Our goal is to see that psychiatrists, their drugs, their depraved influence on children and fraudulent diagnoses are permanently removed from all schools. Once the infection is removed we will soon see the education system heal and get back to simple basic educational techniques unimpeded by psychiatric meddling" said Beaumont.

The Citizens Commission on Human Rights is an international psychiatric watchdog group co-founded in 1969 by the Church of Scientology and Dr. Thomas Szasz, Professor of Psychiatry Emeritus at the State University of New York Upstate Medical University in Syracuse, to investigate and expose psychiatric violations of human rights.
