Let us work together to erase the stigma of being labeled "mentally ill."

If mental illnesses were true brain diseases, there would be no controversy surrounding this subject. The controversy exists because research continues to contradict the use of medications despite the insistence of psychiatry that their theories are correct. The so called "diseases or illnesses" were voted into existence in the DSM to encourage profits for many organizations & professions on many different levels. We believe that human suffering, though very real, does not indicate a dysfunction of the brain & can be treated & healed with safer, more natural approaches than dangerous, addictive, psychotropic drugs. The human brain is the most complex organ in our bodies. Efforts to understand the brain continue to be used to sell the chemical imbalance theory even though the results of studies are inconclusive & contradictory.
