A worrying number of shy and book smart children are being labelled as 'mentally ill' by doctors who are under pressure from parents to give them a diagnosis according to a top psychiatrist.

Professor Sir Simon Wessely, the new head of the Royal College of Psychiatrists says that there is a growing trend of medicating normal traits in children by the insistence of overbearing parents.

Pushy parents are getting GPs to prescribe drugs such as Ritalin and Prozac to treat serious disorders creating a huge rise in antidepressants and drug use among young children.

Along with mental health diagnosis, one of the most commonly medicated disorders is attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).
If a child is seen as being overactive, but does not necessarily have ADHD, he could be prescribed drugs, Professor Wessely said.
He told The Times: 'Certain behaviour carry stigma and there's less stigma if it's associated with a disorder. Often it's about the avoidance of guilt.

'You get obvious pressures from parents: we've all been to middle class dinner parties where so many parents seem to say their kids are mildly autistic and yet they've just got into Oxford. And you think 'I don't really buy that one'...

Around three to seven per cent of children, or 400,000, are believed to have ADHD in the UK, with many being prescribed drugs to try and improve their concentration at school.

According to recent figures, the use of ADHD drugs has tripled over the past decade and antidepressants usage has shot up too.
Professor Wessely said that it is becoming less common for children to be labelled as 'shy' but they are more likely to be branded as having a social phobia or a behavioural problem

And even schools are benefitting from mislabelling pupils, says Professor Wessely, as the more special needs children in a school, the more funds they'll get.

Another angle to consider is how being smart and intellectual is always being pushed as "uncool", or for "nerds". Low IQ activities and mindsets are fashionable.

Humm that smells a bit like the vision in the movie/story "Harrison Bergeron". :ponda:

I wouldn't read too much about it before watching the movie.

Source: http://en.wikipedia.org
"Harrison Bergeron" is a satirical and dystopian science-fiction short story written by Kurt Vonnegut Jr. and first published in October 1961. Originally published in The Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction, the story was republished in the author's Welcome to the Monkey House collection in 1968. The satire raises a serious question concerning the desirability of social equality and the extent to which society is prepared to go to achieve it.

Its reason why Mao or the Bolsheviks wiped out intelligentsia and replaced them with brainless command receivers.

Same is happening now all over the west, since its the same evil spirit driving it.

These days it is hard to look for ''normal'' children without a psychiatric label.
Maybe the labels are a reassurance for parents who struggle with their childrens behaviour,
but for the childen they do more harm then good.
Schools also look for an easy way out to get rid of so called problem children.
Real behavioural problems are detected faster; but this also can mean problemising and
medicalising children.
I think they blame the kids;but maybe we should stop looking for the perfect child, and value
and accept their individuality.
This kind of disgusting and disrespectful behaviour is condoned here

Any childhood trait now has a mental disorder named after it

Every mental disorder has a drug chasing after it
Vaccine fraud? What about psychiatric fraud? Staggering.

THERE ARE NO DEFINITIVE LABORATORY TESTS FOR ANY SO-CALLED MENTAL DISORDER.

And along with that:
ALL SO-CALLED MENTAL DISORDERS ARE CONCOCTED, NAMED, LABELED, DESCRIBED, AND CATEGORIZED by a committee of psychiatrists, from menus of human behaviors.

Their findings are published in periodically updated editions of The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM), printed by the American Psychiatric Association.

Of course, pharmaceutical companies, who manufacture highly toxic drugs to treat every one of these “disorders,” are leading the charge to invent more and more mental-health categories, so they can sell more drugs and make more money.
Adverse effects of Valproate (given for a Bipolar diagnosis) include:

* acute, life-threatening, and even fatal liver toxicity;

* life-threatening inflammation of the pancreas;

* brain damage.

Adverse effects of Lithium (also given for a Bipolar diagnosis) include:

* intercranial pressure leading to blindness;

* peripheral circulatory collapse;

* stupor and coma.

Adverse effects of Risperdal (given for “Bipolar” and “irritability stemming from autism”) include:

* serious impairment of cognitive function;

* fainting;

* restless muscles in neck or face, tremors (may be indicative of motor brain damage).
For every one of the following (selected and quoted verbatim) Ritalin effects, there is at least one confirming source in the medical literature:

* Paranoid delusions

* Paranoid psychosis

* Hypomanic and manic symptoms, amphetamine-like psychosis

* Activation of psychotic symptoms

* Toxic psychosis

* Visual hallucinations

* Auditory hallucinations

* Can surpass LSD in producing bizarre experiences

* Effects pathological thought processes

* Extreme withdrawal

* Terrified affect

* Started screaming

* Aggressiveness

* Insomnia

* Since Ritalin is considered an amphetamine-type drug, expect
amphetamine-like effects

* Psychic dependence

* High-abuse potential DEA Schedule II Drug

* Decreased REM sleep

* When used with antidepressants one may see dangerous reactions including hypertension, seizures and hypothermia

* Convulsions

* Brain damage may be seen with amphetamine abuse.

A recent survey revealed that a high percentage of children diagnosed with bipolar had first received a diagnosis of ADHD. This is informative, because Ritalin and other speed-type drugs are given to kids who are slapped with the ADHD label. Speed, sooner or later, produces a crash. This is easy to call “clinical depression.”

Then comes Prozac, Paxil, Zoloft. These drugs can produce temporary highs, followed by more crashes. The psychiatrist notices the up and down pattern—and then produces a new diagnosis of Bipolar (manic-depression) and prescribes other drugs, including Valproate and Lithium.
