|There are 14 documentaries with statements from scores of health professionals, academics, legal and human rights experts, and victims of psychiatric brutalities ranging from electroshock and involuntary commitment to political torture, psychosurgery and the devastating effects of psychotropic drugs. There are dozens of displays chronicling mental health barbarity spanning hundreds of years right up to present day. |
The museum has the sections on the destructive psychiatric influence on the USA youth, with 7.4 million children alone taking psychiatric drugs, including prescribed cocaine-like stimulants, and psychiatry’s infiltration of Hollywood and the creative industries, resulting in a staggering loss of talent in many artistic fields, including Kurt Cobain, Marilyn Monroe and Judy Garland. Modern museum shows that psychiatry is an industry driven entirely by profit, and provides practical guidance for lawmakers, doctors, human rights advocates and private citizens to take action in their own sphere to bring psychiatry under the law, and to help protect themselves and others from the abuses rampant in the mental health field.
Current statistics and facts shown in the new museum include:
◙ Electroshock, drugs and other barbaric means are used by psychiatrists to torture political dissidents.
◙ About twenty million children worldwide are taking psychiatric drugs, which can cause suicide, hostility, violence, mania and drug dependence.
◙ Each year more than 100,000 patients die in psychiatric institutions.
◙ Psychiatrists kill up to 10,000 people with their use of electroshock annually—460 volts of electricity sent searing through the brain. Most of all electroshock victims are women.
◙ Psychologists and psychiatrists have raped 250,000 women. 10 to 25 percent of psychiatrists sexually assault their patients; of every 20 of these victims one is likely to be a minor.
The museum have been described it as, “inspirational,” and it should be viewed by everyone who breathes.
