Peter Breggin quote

“If you assume that every child is sensitive, vulnerable, readily injured and easily broken, then you will never be far from the truth. If you assume that all children are motivated by pride and justice, you will be able to communicate with them. If you assume that all children should be treated as sacred trusts who deserve your full measure of devotion, you will be on the right path. If you seek to find the vulnerable, precious child in yourself and in all other adults at all times in your dealings with yourself and others, you will have achieved enlightenment. You will become a gift to the children in your life to whatever degree that you remain enlightened in your dealings with them.”
from Reclaiming Our Children by Peter Breggin, M.D. (p. 110)

Green Mental Health | Genita Petralli

“My life is dedicated to reclaiming lives from psychiatric drugs and exposing psychiatry for what it is: a gang of white collar drug pushers robbing our society of every resource that supports it right down to our future; the children. To sit on the sidelines and do nothing while I watch people suffer from the effects of psychiatric drugs is not an option.”
Genita Petralli

If you talk to God…

If you talk to God, you are praying;
If God talks to you, you have schizophrenia.

Mental Health or Medical Treatment?

“The mental health establishment has snowed the American people: it launches the most unimaginable brutal psychological and physical assault on human beings in distress, calls this ‘medical treatment’, and then blames the outcome on ‘mental illness’.– Seth Farber, PhD.

Even with millions of words online exposing psychiatry’s brutality and crimes many people in this country and the world over are still unaware of the real intentions of the American Psychiatric Association. To see more quotes check out a site that has many “in their own words“.
