NAMIpharmafront posted a topic in Finding meaningNAMI pretends to be fighting discrimination against people labeled with psychiatric diagnoses, even though evidence shows that the scientifically unsupported chemical imbalance theory that NAMI promotes as "fact" actually increases discrimination. It tells the public that people with a psychiatric diagnosis have “broken brains,” and that their moods and behaviors are governed by faulty brain chemistry. This is an understanding that separates the “mentally ill” from the rest of society. The “mentally ill” are different from “us.” What NAMI really wants is to normalize the use of psychiatric drugs. More social acceptability means more profit for NAMI’s corporate paymasters, and more influence for NAMI and its agenda to force psychiatry on people that don't want it. In 2004, NAMI opposed the placement of "black box" warnings on antidepressants determined to cause suicide in under-18 year olds, and in 2006 opposed black box warnings on ADHD drugs causing heart attack, stroke and sudden death in children in 2006. Despite overwhelming evidence of serious adverse cardiac events and sudden deaths caused by ADHD drugs, in 2006 NAMI took the position that the “black box” warning on ADHD drugs was “premature.” Lilly donated millions to NAMI. For its part, NAMI promotes the increased use of psychotropic drugs, and even lobbies for laws allowing mental patients to be forced to take antipsychotic drugs. The drugs most often prescribed for involuntary patients -- Janssen's Risperdal (risperidone) and Lilly's Zyprexa (olanzapine) -- cause debilitating, indeed, lethal effects. NAMI's failure to inform its constituents about the danger these drugs pose for patients, and its continued aggressive promotion of these drugs despite the evidence, may be viewed as confirmation that NAMI is an extension of Lilly's marketing department." I found some meaning for my life, exposing this fraud so other people don't have to endure psychiatric drug hell like I did. I like Saddleback church, I just do not like the pharma front group "NAMI". They are DISHONEST ! Saddle back church would be better without these NAMI drug pushers hanging around.

This is a fraud. No child has a brain scan, blood test, X-Ray or any evidence of physical abnormality to verify they are "ill" or "diseased." Yet NAMI continues to pound the public with misleading and fraudulent statements that these so called mental disorders are biochemical or neurological conditions. That is false. They are simply a list of behaviors that psychiatrists vote into existence and insert into their billing bible, the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders. This has led to about 10 million children in the U.S. taking mind-altering psychiatric drugs. Saddleback Church is a real cool place, I would be so much better if the NAMI drug pushers would go away !!! Check out this Saddleback Church http://saddleback.com/
