The American Psychiatric Association's Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM) is the book that contains names and descriptions of 374 so-called mental disorders (including everything from depression to "caffeine withdrawal disorder"). Doctors, psychiatrists and other medical and mental health practitioners use the fake DSM to diagnose patients. Each DSM mental disorder description carries a code that clinicians can use to substantiate claims for health insurance reimbursement.
Every psychiatric "expert" involved in writing the DSM standard diagnostic criteria for disorders such as depression and schizophrenia has had financial ties to companies that sell medications for those illnesses.
Brian Beaumont, President of the British Columbia chapter of CCHR said "The 'disorders' in the diagnostic manual are invented by psychiatrists and placed in the DSM for the sole purpose of increasing the numbers of diagnosis that can be made, thereby enormously increasing their income base (unearned cash) and the income of their natural allies, the drug companies. The whole process is done intentionally for the pure and simple purpose of labeling and more and more adults and children for more and more profit. No other reason. The ADHD 'diagnosis' (label) has been one of the biggest money makers in psychiatry's whole history of invented disorders and is a 100 percent fraud".
