According to the chair of child and adolescent psychiatry."
We know that the influenza epidemic of 1918-19 occurred in three waves, with the second wave in the late summer and early autumn of 1918 being the most lethal. Consequently, it would be prudent to assume that further waves of high rates of infection will occur. Indeed, only this week the U.S. Centers for Disease Control pointed out the very high risks to public health of a second wave of COVID-19 coinciding with the usual seasonal influenza outbreak this coming autumn and winter".
With the alarming news regarding the spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) and restrictions on our daily living, the mental health watchdog, Citizens Commission on Human Rights International (CCHR) (https://www.cchrint.org/)
is reminding people that CDC prevention guidelines are a safer option than anti-anxiety pills, antidepressants or other potentially mind-altering drugs. With 50 years' experience, CCHR has tracked and documented the push for people to take psychotropic drugs when facing social crises. Sales of these, especially antidepressants and anti-anxiety drugs, often soar in times of major health or terrorism threats and natural disasters, yet long-term use can carry significant risks.
A psychiatrist just launched a clinical trial on 150 individuals "repurposing"
an antidepressant to treat people
diagnosed with COVID-19 (purportedly for health, not mental health reasons!). The same antidepressant was prescribed to one of the most infamous school shooters in history and is documented to induce suicide and violence.
Psychiatric Times was also quick to report "it is anticipated that COVID-19 will have rippling effects." For example, the required excessive cleaning of hands could lead to compulsions. Such compulsions are a core feature of OCD (obsessive-compulsive disorder) and "can easily be exacerbated by the threat of infectious pandemics
CCHR offers a free online psychiatric drugs side effects database (https://www.cchrint.org/psychdrugdangers/
) to ensure people are properly informed of the risks and dangers of these drugs.
The Citizens Commission on Human Rights was established by the Church of Scientology to investigate and expose psychiatric violations of human rights. .
