The Citizens Commission on Human Rights (CCHR) has been on the cutting edge of exposing the criminal enterprise we know as psychiatry. The documentary, Psychiatry: An Industry of Death, chronicled the sordid history of “diagnosed” mental illness and the birth of the psychiatric industry, and became CCHR’s classic debut in professional documentaries. Their latest documentary, The Marketing of Madness, is professionally produced and well organized – in three parts separated into 13 chapters, including a great booklet for summarizing what was presented, and ending with a list of 11 important actions that can be taken after viewing this shocking and compelling documentary.
The film starts out with a brief history of psychiatry and psychology, and how the drug industry reclassified apparent mental disorders of a soul/psyche basis to a brain disorder that required shock therapy, lobotomies and finally drugs (chemical lobotomies) for treatment. To date, psychiatrists have never had to prove that mental conditions they prescribe drugs for have a physical disease basis in the brain. Furthermore, no nutrient deficiency is ever explored in this Pharma-controlled racket to explain various mental anomalies such as depression, bi-polar, schizophrenia, etc., even though countless independent studies using orthomolecular nutrition and diet have been used successfully. Articles printed in medical journals and funded by drug companies claim there is a chemical imbalance in the brain for which psychotropic drugs are necessary to correct the imbalance despite the fact there are no tests performed to support such a claim.
