Does Psychiatry Invent Mental Diseases?
Here is one piece of information you will not want to miss. World-renowned Dr. Thomas Szasz, a psychiatrist himself, contends that a certain piece of psychiatric label - "schizophrenia" - was attributed to a variety of diseases (syphilis and alcoholism foremost) long before the label was coined in 1911 by two psychiatrists. The label gives psychiatrists the illusion that they're looking at a disease they can control or drug, despite their really abysmal record. Dr. Anne Schaef, author of "Beyond Therapy, Beyond Science," remarks that the coined psychiatric label - "schizophrenia" - appears then to be one of those invented diseases by psychiatrists with strong economic and career advantage from these very labels.
