The Videos in this Thread were created by a SCIENTOLOGY front group and are very bias in their presentation. Scientologists hate Psychiatry and even go so far as to blame it for the Holocaust. They talk about psychiatry's long-standing "master plan" for world domination. They blame psychiatry for the September 11 attacks and state that that psychiatrists caused the universe havoc billions of years ago. Scientologists hate Psychiatry as Psychiatrists have been instrumental in helping individuals who wish to leave the cult. CCHR Holds that mental illness of any kind does not exist, based on the teachings of the cult. Thus Epilepsy, Autism, Schizophrenia, Dyslexia, and many others do not exist according to CCHR. They claim mental disease is simply a confused "Body Thetan" or alien ghost living within you. CCHR has been found guilty of "very substantial" libel damages and the court also found that CCHR's claims were "highly defamatory" and "utterly false."
While some drugs are not good for you, and others are more about profit than cure, there are indeed numerous medication that are very helpful for a large number of people.
Please be aware of who is making these films and watch them with that clear Cult Bias in mind.
