BBC Radio 5 live Investigates needs antidepressant case studies

BBC Radio 5 live Investigates is looking for UK residents who are prepared to talk about antidepressants for a programme this weekend.

In particular, the programme is seeking individuals with the following experiences:

  • those who are put on antidepressants and remain on them due to having little or no contact with their GP; perhaps they are just getting repeat prescriptions without any real check-ins or reviews with their GP to see if they need them
  • those who have a mild-moderate depression initially but are advised to go onto antidepressants when a talking therapy might be the best solution, perhaps because there is too long a wait for talking therapies, and end up on the drug for years
  • those who have a sense of fear and dependence on the drug, and when they try to come off they get worse (because of withdrawal); this becomes an unbreakable cycle, taking something for years that they might never have needed.  Perhaps after years they break out of this loop but end up suffering terrible withdrawal effects.

If you are willing to talk about any of these issues, either because of personal experience or because of a family member, please contact asap.

    In reality whoever goes agaisnt the actual psychiatric/mental health treatment is expose to danger and persecution and in the best of the cases ignored.

    They have created thousands of files with false and wrong information about individuals "illness" and lives or information has been distorted without possibility to be repaired,  further down this had and has a tremendous negative influence in  citizens lives and families have been destroyed. The worst is 2 wrongs do not make one right!

    The problem starts with the “black book”that western world is following to diagnose illness that do not exist in the way they present them. There is too much evidence that psychiatric traditional tratment does not work.

    That is the point to start with. Dr Bob Johnson, Dr Breggin, Dr loren Moshe (in peace he rest) among others are psychiatrist that are proving the actual diagnosis of mental illness are wrong and they have already demonstrated how patients can recover with other support and not with antopsicotics antidepresives etc..

    For many years the responsibles of healtb in our countries are still continuing  looking to the other side   and ignoring the devastating harm that is been provoked and permited in our society from children to senior citizens.

    Most of GP are not aware of the serious harm these treatments provoke. Even the training of junior psychiatrist seems to ensure of their ignorance in solutions other than drugs and once the join the psychiatrist system under the umbrella of senior psuchiatrists and become part of the actual "delusional diagnosis " of patients is hard for them to admit later that they are wrong.

    As most of the victims/patients are not aware of the root problem they can find themselves harming more as the story can be twisted. Specially be aware of disinformation which is a popular doing by the masters of  communication, it does not mean exceptions exist. The patients which have been treated with this kinds of drugs face two essential big problems hard to dissantangle, one the physical and mental illness provoked by the treatment overlaping with the initial health problem that was not address at the starting point.

    This does not seem to me of any help in resolving the big mess created by the irresponsible psychiatrists. This is not the way to help the abused patients, families and friends. Antidepresives, antipsycotics are given mixed to patients to address all kind of "mental health" diagnosis. If you really want to help to change the situation you are in the wrong path.
