A Government in Charge of Your “Mental Health” is not a Democracy

A Government in Charge of Your “Mental Health” is not a Democracy.

Eleven-year-old Kara Neumann could no longer walk or speak, but her parents, Leilani and Dale Neumann of Wausau, Wisconsin believed God alone could cure her. She died of diabetic keto-acidosis—entirely preventable. This is “medical negligence.” Approximately 300 children have died in the US in the past 25 years where conventional medical care was denied in favor faith healing.

All states allow Child Protective Services (CPS) to remove children where physical abuse is likely, or where essential medical care is withheld.

However, today, in the US, the most common reason by far for CPS-judicial intervention is to enforce acceptance of school-mandated psychiatric diagnosis and drugging as if such were actual diseases. The #1 source of reports of “medical negligence” are the nation’s schools. They are also the main source of “mental health” diagnosing and of the psychiatric drugging that invariably follows.

They diagnose blatantly or suggest that “chemical imbalances” are present and that the family should consult a physician–one who will affirm their diagnosis and prescription.

Should the parent resist they get calls at home and at work from teacher-pushers enumerating their child’s unacceptable behaviors, threatening suspension. The coercion is systematic, from the Department of Education down. CHADD and NAMI are in-house aiding and abetting what has become the biggest drug-pushing enterprise in history calling all of their “diagnoses” “diseases.”

On March 19, 1999, Diane Booth faced panel of educators at Cherry Chase School, Sunnyvale, California and refused to put her 5 ½ year-old son Vincent, on Ritalin. On April 24, 1999, the school made a referral to Sunnyvale Police for “alleged suspected emotional abuse” and domestic violence.” On July 29, 1999, Vincent was removed from his home for refusing to medicate her child for ADHD—a disease never proved to exist. From that day to the present Vincent has been a source of income for the psycho-pharmaceutical-government cartel. He is now 15 and has not been out of a psychiatric hospital or seen his mother or any other relative since.

On March 21st, 2000, fourteen-year-old Matthew Smith was skateboarding with two cousins when he fell off the skateboard, collapsed and died. Medical examiner, Dr. Ljubisa Dragovic, said Matthew had died a heart attack caused by Ritalin which Matthew had started taking at seven after being diagnosed at school with ADHD. The small blood vessels of the heart had been scarred and grown thicker. The heart itself had become enlarged because it had to work harder to compensate for the impaired vessels. Never had Dr. Dragovic witnessed this set of conditions in anybody so young. Usually they are found in adults with a history of abusing stimulants, such as cocaine and amphetamines. Though Ritalin is usually presented as a mild stimulant, it is nearly identical to cocaine and is actually more potent at comparable dosages, something Matthew’s parents had no idea of eight years earlier, when Matthew’s school repeatedly insisted that he had ADHD and needed to be given Ritalin.

Divorced father, Brian Verbeek of Kingston, Ontario, Canada, was court-ordered to say nothing critical of the psychiatric diagnoses or drugs given his 12-year-old son—those that had made him so fat he could no longer run. It was the letter of November 10, 2008, that Mr. Verbeek received from Health Canada, counterpart of our FDA, that incurred the wrath of the court. It read: “For mental/psychiatric disorders in general, including depression, anxiety, schizophrenia and ADHD, there are no confirmatory gross, microscopic or chemical abnormalities that have been validated for objective physical diagnosis. Rather, diagnoses of possible mental conditions are described strictly in terms of patterns of symptoms that tend to cluster together…”

State Senator Nancy Schaeffer tells of an emotional meeting with 38 families in her 50th Senatorial District of Georgia who had had their children taken from them by CPS, invoking psychiatric directives. Think of the millions of adults and children alike, in the US, psychiatrically labeled and drugged. Is this the pipeline? Is government the enemy?

The emotional life and development of all US citizens and their children is their responsibility, not government’s (unless their behavior is round to be lawful). Any government that holds otherwise is not a democracy.
