Psychiatric Treatment For Children - Put Them In Cages

This has become a high profile issue recently due to a news article about the foster parents who were allegedly advised by a psychiatrist to keep their children in cages. This should come as no surprise though - putting children in cages as a form of treatment has been in use by psychiatry for over 200 years. Rather than actually curing patients psychiatric hospitals often just sedate patients with drugs, restrain them or lock them up.

Last year this same practice of psychiatrists putting children in cages was brought to media attention by Harry Potter author, JK Rowling. This article in the Taipei Times reviews how these cages are used while treating patients in psychiatric hospitals. It describes cage beds fitted with metal bars or nets to control difficult patients. These are simply barbaric cages that needlessly trap tormented souls who are already prisoners of their own minds.

The article also goes on to say “Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling complained about the beds, joining the EU, Amnesty International and rights groups that have denounced them as inhuman and degrading.”

The Citizens Commission On Human Rights has long fought for the end to brutal psychiatric treatment. They have been instrumental in getting rid of abusive restraint practices in many areas. However, there is a lot more to be done. You can see CCHR’s investigative report on psychiatric restraint by clicking this link. This report has several chilling accounts of children being killed in psychiatric facilities by being abused and forcibly restrained by the adults who were supposed to be caring for them.

We no longer live in the dark ages where it is acceptable to abuse people in a torture like fashion while claiming to cure them. This has been the practice of psychiatry for hundreds of years. Lobotomies, Electric shock treatments, straight jackets - these are the tools of the trade. Now they’ve added a new more hidden brutality to perpetrate on people. Psychiatry and the big drug companies have most of the population convinced that all emotional problems are the result of chemical imbalances in the brain - when there is not a shred of hard scientific fact to prove it. They are now busy drugging whole segments of society with drugs to magically cure these mythical diseases.

It’s time for psychiatry as we know it today to end and be replaced with a science that actually heals it patients and bases it treatments on facts and not wild theories of brain diseases.
