What is the Mother's Act?

mother_and_baby.jpgWhat is the Mother’s Act? - Written by Mental Health Advocate and Director of the Citizens Commission on Human Rights of Florida  Laurie Anspach

Most Americans are becoming all too familiar with the steady stream of new mental illnesses psychiatry has “identified.” Almost every single behavior, habit, or thought process that a man, woman, or child experiences has been incorrectly deemed to be a mental illness by psychiatry. Even babies who cry are now considered by psychiatry to be mentally ill. The Mother's Act fits this pattern.

Depression: One Woman’s Revelation

 

CCHR Logo.jpg“Depression” is an over‑used term to describe many symptoms, some of which are normal life stresses. When hearing the word, we simply put it into a category, in our minds of, “Well! Who hasn’t been depressed?” and, “Oh, they have pills for that kind of thing.”

In fact, the use of this term has been promoted by the psychiatric industry since 1952, at which time the first edition of psychiatry’s “Billing Bible”, The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual, was published.  This diagnosis has resulted in millions of people on psychiatric medication and billions of dollars lining the pockets of the pharmaceutical industry and psychiatry.
