Schizophrenia Psychiatry - Articles

Schizophrenia - needed by bad psychiatry by Rossa Forbes Posted Tue 13 Sep 2011 12:00am I try to avoid Dr. David Allen's blog Family Dysfunction and Mental Health, because, Dr. Allen, alas, does not understand schizophrenia and seems resistant to ex-patients explaining to him that their issues relate in some way to overt trauma or family dysfunction. Some of my blog's energetic readers have taken him on in the past, but to no avail ... Read on »

Brain shrinkage okay for schizophrenia, but not for depression by Rossa Forbes Posted Fri 18 Feb 2011 12:00am I follow a blog called Family Dysfunction and Mental Health by Dr. David Allen.

I noticed that the people who tended to comment are opinioned about his views ... Read on »
Psychiatry for the 21st Century by Lewis Posted Fri 08 Feb 2008 9:44am I'm sitting in the cold in Saskatchewan. It's been mild, only -20 this week. Last week one night hit -51 with the wind chill I think. That was miserable. Cars never warm up. I find it hard to make it to work on time in this cold. No one else seems to have that trouble.

Why I Am Not Anti-Psychiatry by Pandora Facebook Posted Thu 30 Sep 2010 4:32pm I am scared of psychiatrists.  In fact, my lovely GP excepted, I am generally scared of medical doctors full-stop.  I think that quite a few are incompetent, overpaid megalomaniacs who become disillusioned with the personnel necessarily involved in their chosen career all too quickly, and whose over-the-top professional cynicism grossly deters p ...
