“Whistleblowing”: a health issue. BMJ 1993;307:667-70

…”Forcing whistleblowers to see psychiatrists in order to discredit them, usually as having a personality disorder that could account for their irrational obsession with malpractice, is reminiscent of Soviet misuse of psychiatry. If the first psychiatrist’s report is unhelpful the subject can be forced to see another until the desired result is achieved. This practice is clearly unethical: coercion invalidates consent. (The personalities of the subjects in this study were not unusual, but nearly half were of the sensing, thinking, perceiving type (about 12% of the population), which is considered to be particularly suited to quality control or accountancy.)”… — Jean Lennane.

The Russian Concept of Schizophrenia: A Review of the Literature

…“For the first time in the history of science, nonprofessional politicians started telling scientists how to do the “right kind of science,” and anything other than the right kind was pronounced wrong.”…  —  Helen Lavretsky. Schizophrenia Bulletin 1998

“A totally honest organization would never hide or disguise actions or stonewall.” — Brian Martin

    Reblogged this on Chaos Theory and Human Pharmacology and commented:

    “Psychiatric incarceration of mentally healthy people is uniformly understood to be a particularly pernicious, form of repression, because it uses the powerful modalities of medicine as tools of punishment, and it compounds a deep affront to human rightswith deception and fraud. Doctors who allow themselves to be used in this way (certainly as collaborators, but even as victims of intimidation) betray the trust of society and breach their most basic ethical obligations as professionals.” (1)
