Talk by Dr James Davies, 7 June in London: The DSM – A Great Work or Fiction?


A study of why psychiatry has become bad for our mental health

Why is psychiatry such big business? Why are so many psychiatric drugs prescribed, and why, without solid scientific justification, has the number of mental disorders risen from 106 in 1952, to 374 today? In this talk, Dr James Davies takes us behind the scenes of how the psychiatrist’s bible, the DSM, was actually written – did science drive the construction of new mental disorder categories like ADHD, major depression and Aspergers? – or were less-scientific and more dubious processes at play? His exclusive interviews with the creators of the DSM reveal the troubling answer.

    The fate of a culture so long addicted to the adversarial value of ‘divide and rule’ of other cultures different to ourselves, is and has been be to ultimately suffer the same by its own hand. Conventional psychiatry is the conventional agency of this addiction..
    It is our destiny to confront this unfortunate karma and restore our humanity.

    100% fiction but turned into Big Pharma fact, as seen in their Profit and Loss A/C and Balance Sheet. Profit before people, no morality.

    You are telling the truth James and thank you.

    It would be very helpful to see the video of this talk for those of us unable to attend. Dr. James Davies, thank you for speaking out on behalf of those too weak and damaged from psychiatric drugging to have a voice.
