Psychiatry: An Industry of DeathPsychiatry: An Industry of Death is a controversial documentary on the horrors of psychiatry, of punishing and persecuting of the innocent and promoting Fascism, racism and atheism.

It was the foundation for the Holocaust, apartheid, for Jim Crow and for Communism. It has lead to many deaths. It denies God, the giver of life and freedom. It stands against the values of freedom, life, liberty and dignity.

There have been allegations that this is a Scientology propaganda film. Although the church of Scientology has had influence on the production of this film, the evil inherant in psychiatry should be of great concern to all people of all faiths especially Christians and Jews.

Psychiatrists in Nazi Germany basically branded innocent people as mentally ill including Jews. The concentration camps of Auschwitz and elsewhere were nothing more than psychiatric hospitals for those the Nazi State deemed mentally unfit. IE: Jews Gypsies, Christians, Dissidents, ETC.

Whether you like Scientology or not there are truths here. Psychiatrists now spend 10 minutes reviewing meds, or better yet have their PA do it, and do no therapy. They try and get patients on more and more meds especially addictive ones like Adderall and Suboxone. Do the math. $125 (conservatively) x5 per hour, and sometimes don't even spend 10 minutes- on the PHONE or Zoom. I'm not sure what PAs get but I doubt it's the $600per hr the doctor charges .

This is 100% $cientology propaganda. The CoS was founded by a paranoid nutcase science fiction writer who desperately needed psychiatric care and when he died was found to have psych meds in his system. He spent his later years in hiding from the government due to his ripping off people of millions of dollars for phony "tech".

As someone who needed help from my late teens even then I refused to see a psychiatrist. Something about it wrong wrong and felt like they would just PUSH drugs on me. Instead I spoke to a psychologist and my doctor. I received a diagnosis of BPD and CPTSD eventually. Sure I am medicated and that medication does help, but I still have to do work to keep myself in a healthy space. Mental Illness is VERY real. But psychiatry is not the answer for most. (and by that I mean that some people benefit from being in the wards where I am. This does not apply to everyone or everywhere around the world)

When I was 16, I stole my step-fathers Plymouth Fury ex-cop car with the big interceptor motor. Long story short, because of a lack of juvenile facilities I was thrown into Norwich State Hospital for the Insane. After a single meeting with a psychiatrist I was diagnosed manic depressive with a depressive neuroses. 6 years later, after 4 other psychiatrists gave sworn affidavits that there wasn't a damn thing wrong with me, except for this seemingly constant involuntary movement of my jaw, we collected mid-six-figures from the hospital, the doctor, and the state. Thank you very little. And if you're the type of person the casually dismisses what this documentary offers, you probably believe Joe Biden is the best President ever.

Psychiatry an industry of godless, antichrist, lies, death, destruction, deceit, rape, framing innocent victims, perverting the course of justice, making a killing, and laughing all the way to the bank about it. By the way; both psychiatry and scientology deny the existence of the soul and mock Jesus. I know. I went browsing through their books one day when they insisted I walked by and they insisted that I come in and do one of those tests with the 200 questions that gives you three answers to choose from. Scientology demanded I give them my chain with a star and a cross and said they will give it back when I buy a book they were trying to sell me. I never got my chain and cross and star back. Scientology were calling me up every week asking for my bank details and trying to sell me a book for $40. I never gave them my bank details then they were calling up every week and asking me for my bank details to sell me a $4000 set of Scientology books but I refused. I asked CCHR to help me with this Mental Health Psychiatric treachery problem. They sent me 2 DVD's from 2 different places and I never heard from them again and they never helped me. Just "leave a donation." Those videos do tell a lot of truths but as Christians know that familiar truth that the best place to hide a lie is between two truths. You know what I mean don't you? Psychiatry and Scientology operate on the same level; They are both ungodly and antichrist and both deny the man or mankind has a soul. Ungodly cults of greed for money and power and thoughts control. I want my chain and my cross and my star back from scientology and the abominations committed by psychiatry need to be stopped and put on trial with the falsified medical psychiatric records by psychiatrists and registrars be held accountable.

It's all scam and is designed and created to kill us,poison our genes/dna. Any and every disease ,virus that is not created by man, most definitely can be cured. This planet we call dirt(earth) has everything we need to get health again. Botanical gardens. Plants trees fungus and bugs. I have also discovered that these wonderful gifts from our mother Earth gave me a gift of breaking the chains of 22 year addiction to every and any street drug. Herion and meth was my last two addiction battles. The claws were sunk in deep. One night I ate magic mushrooms and became aware of an entity that was near me. I had been aware of it for some time. But never understood or believed it was real. That night I found out the truth. I would love to share my experience but this is not the place for it. I try to make it brief. Basically the drugs caused my brain to access different frequencies that allowed this entity to attach it's self to me and it's purpose was to keep me sick and stop me from my purpose in life. So I confronted it and had long banter with it. Much was said and shown. When I woke up the obsession and control drugs had on me was gone. This was two yrs ago. I have encountered this thing 3xs since after smoking weed. My last encounter I found out that its not going anywhere till it's job is done. My failure. Not happening I'm stronger and more spiritual then ever. And understand so much. Not sure why I started writing this. Research into nature yourself and educate your mind with as much as possible. May your day's be filled love and serenity.

I agree that mental illness is amorphous and cannot be clearly defined. But it definitely exists. I also agree that it is mis-diagnosed and over-diagnosed. It is not a pseudo-science; rather I believe it is constantly evolving and we are learning more about it all the time. We can't dismiss it just because we don't know everything about it. Wasn't it just 50 (or fewer) years ago we thought that cigarette smoke didn't cause any harm? Maybe in another 50 years we'll have a better grip on mental illness and its diagnosis and treatment.

The documentary states that mental illness has never been and can never be cured. Well, neither can diabetes or high cholesterol. Both can be treated but can never be completely cured. Mental illness isn't alone in that sense.

Excellent documentary. Those that claim this documentary is a lie, Scientology, biased etc... are either psychiatric patients or those working in the mental health industry. They're in willful denial of the facts and truths in the documentary. Psychiatry has destroyed, maimed and even killed the lives of millions around the world with pseudoscience. It is a marketing and advertising agency that is stigmatizing, selling drugs and destroying lives for profit. Psychiatry should be abolished just like slavery was abolished. Psychiatry is modern day slavery. A pseudoscience cult that claims it can read peoples minds. What a joke of a profession.

This is an excellent documentary exposing the fraud of psychiatry. The whole world needs to see this. Those who call it lies, Scientology propaganda etc... are either psychiatric patients who are in willful denial of the truth or people who work in the psychiatric industry. Psychiatrists are criminals who invent fictitious diseases which they have never proven and cause the exact same symptoms they claim to be treating with their drugs so they can bill for patient visits and prescriptions for profit. It's a HUGE SCAM.

Psychiatry's brutalization of humanity under the guise of help is clearly exposed. There's no way this video is a lie because there's no way the shinks would allow it to continue to be broadcast. It's too damning of their criminal actions.

This was a carefully researched propaganda film produced by Scientology, which I find to be more threatening than Psychiatry as it is practiced now. They conveniently omitted that patients have rights and that there is a hearing for involuntary commitments. One could argue the same points against religion and cite many more examples of death and destruction. One could argue the point with medicine in general ~ exposing frightening and painful 'cures' from past Centuries as has been done in this film. Poorly done and cynical that people wouldn't realize the obvious slant.

Hi I have been a victim to sickchiatry for many years I was never mentally ill in the 1st place, I got put on top dose of anti-pychotic meds 1st appointment I had with a shrink, I was a very active lad very confident and sociable no mental issues what so ever cutting a very long sad story short, I have been on mind altering meds for many years now and been unlawfully detained in a mental ward few times I also have wrong diagnoses the worst one I rather not say but I am now fat and going bald and on a depo injection as I exposed sickyciatry on utube so they stuck me on injection so now I am not clever like I use 2 be am very slow now as I was a very intelligent young fellow, psychiatry in a nutshell pit money b4 principal and that's the truth they want to be number 1, if they had the power they would dope up the masses all to feed the masonic pharma ind and that's the cold hard facts right there. psychiatry is basically a secret society in a way they have hidden agendas and shrinks do not like out spoken people who oppose against them.

You know psychiatrists study 4 years of medical school. Which can leave them with almost $300,000 on debt. They have to study every system of the body in great detail. Most of it has nothing to do with mental health or psychiatry, or at least not directly. They spend most of those days studying. They can spend more than 10 hours a day reading books and studying. They not only study for classes, but for boards exams. Which creates large amounts of stress. There's also times when you have to be on call and spend long hours at the hospital. Meaning their sleep is greatly affected. Then after they go through all that, is when they actually get training in psychiatry. Which is 4 more years. That's 8 years after the 4 years of undergraduate education. That's 12 years after high school. Many will pretty much put their life on hold (no kids, marriage, vacations, money, etc.) while their friends and families are happy having all that. It will also create problems in their relationships for many, because they can't spend much time with family and friends, because of all they time they have to dedicate to their education. Psychiatry in comparison to other medical doctors is one of the lowest in the pay scale. There are other faster, cheaper, and better ways to make money. Most people go through those sacrifices because they really love what they do, and want to help people. Saying that all psychiatrists go through all that for money, and they don't care about their patients, and purposely give medications to make their patients' lives miserable just for fun makes no sense at all. People actually going into medicine for the money are making a mistake, and are greatly discourage by pretty much everyone who knows how things work in medicine and healthcare. Many choose their career because they or someone they know has been affected with mental illness, and they want to help other people in that situation.

This IS a Scientology propaganda film. Psychiatry was no more the source of the Holocaust than medical science as a whole. Linking psychiatry to communism is the worst kind of conspiracy theory rubbish. Psychiatry did not invent propaganda. The Church of Scientology uses some of the worst psychological manipulation and they are a cult!

Mental illness does not exist. There are brain illnesses like tumors but the mind is a concept. It cannot be "diseased" and psychiatrists have never been able to prove the existence of any of their so called mental "Illnesses" So they resort to propaganda about chemical imbalances and differences in brains but they don't have any tests that could possibly confirm that so in the end it's nonsense, propaganda. Psychiatry must be destroyed.

All of these people complaining about scientology need to watch the video. Not once do they bring their scientology religion into the documentary, Nor do they push it,

The fact is that psychiatrists are able to lock up law abiding citizens violating their oath and nobody can stop them. They can torture you in their prisons because they don't like your belief system and just like an evil cult they spread propaganda, pseudo science and imprison innocents everyday. They are a branch of evil, A form of social control.

Atheism in the same category as fascism and racism? Most fascists and racists are fervent god believers. Shouldn't you be vilifying capitalism, not communism? Your topic sounds inviting but I question the perspective. Very disturbing indeed.

Granted, I'm a psychologist, not a psychiatrist, but this documentary exploits basic fears of today's society, psychiatry's dark past (but then again, all medicine had bizarre, harmful attempts) and screwups of the modern doctors to paint an unreal picture that borders propaganda. Mental illness is real. And documentaries like these prevent people from reaching out with their troubles and scare them out of mental health. And we have to work our way through the stigma AND people's irrational fears fueled by bulls*it like this.

I was born 2 mos.premature with autism. I was put on ritalin and dilantin until age 13. These drugs compromised my immune system. I barely escaped getting a finger amputated and found out I was severely allergic to penicillin. Every time I got a cut, it became gangrenous. After quitting the drugs, I rarely get infected cuts.

No, not a scientology propaganda at al. It's from the CCHR.
A serious organisation though quite zeleous at their beginnings...
I mean that even thouhg they quote hard facts & are well documented, their behavior ruins their action.
For the least, what's the use of the "An eye for an eye" line of conduct?
Viewing that docu made me feel as viewing a docu about the NAZI concentration camps produced by a few detainees of these camps in 1946-1950... Did anybody lost his/her belongings in the bank crash not so long ago? What would be the tone of producer(s) if he'd/she'd produce a docu 'bout this, hum?
No doubt that any professionnal in the psychiatry specialty will not have the wisdom to view the entire docu.
Just think of the allies forcing the surrounding german citizens to view what their leaders had in store.
As anyone studies to become a psy, he or she learns 'bout history of psychiatry? Has time to figure out what help it really brought to human being? I mean, aside eugenism and racial hate.
BTW, I wonder if "They" finally proven (Scientifically, publicalion) any chemical imbalance within the brain using any physical material method apart dogmas.
Coze we've already got told that the end f time is near according to some prophet who also added that he'd be back before his generation be passed by. The religee concept once more.

I read all the comments up till 3 years ago! This doc is hardly new. I think it was made in 2005.
My picture was somewhat "grainy" but I soldiered on because I love learning anything about the mind.
Some of the old footage was very disturbing to me, showing babies and animals being tortured (in my opinion); So be warned.
Some psychiatrists were accused of being everything from pedaphiles, sadists, war-mongers, eugenics, to Nazis and racists.
The narrator claims that drugs cannot possibly cure a mental illness, because biologically mental illness cannot be proved..........
Antiquated, cruel "methods" of curing patients were also demonstrated through footage and photographs, in this doc.
There was a time when physicians used to bleed THEIR patients, prescribe and administer mercury, opium, cocaine. Surgeons once operated without washing their hands or using anesthesia.
Despite a dark history of trial and error,I certainly wouldn't refuse medical treatment in 2013.
And look at how far dentistry has progressed!
Unfortunately, I've had to see shrinks in the past, and despite not opening up my skull to peak inside, I was given extremely effective medications to stop me from killing myself (and believe me, all the therapy in the world wouldn't have stopped me). The psychiatrists I've dealt with have saved my life. However, some were helpful, others were not.
The narrator also claimed that people are being put away in psychiatric facilities against their will:
Hmm, in Ontario, its nearly impossible to get ADMITTED into one, and they are being shut down all over. Maybe its different in the States. I wouldn't know.
There are certainly bad, pill-pushing, unprofessional psychiatrists in this world, and that's because they are human beings like the rest of us.
This doc was interesting by showing the history of mental hospitals and their treatments; but it was trying to convince me that no drug or form of physiological treatment is necessary; they are prescribed for the sole purpose of making psychiatrists rich off insurance companies and medic aid payments.

Pick out all of the flaws and flawed individuals in the system and call the entire system flawed....while playing on aspects of human psychology to make their argument convincing. I wanted to watch this to see what legitimate arguments there are against psychiatry but it's a one sided, dull argument. Booooo,

And further more every system that's ever existed has made false assumptions and errors at one point and it's only in learning from these mistakes that we move on. So Freaking What. This kind of propaganda, emotionally manipulative bullcrap pi*ses me off.

Wow I'm very surprised. Usually the moderators of this website are very good at classifying and categorizing the documentaries, but they very much screwed up on this one. The vast majority of the subject matter in this documentary is purely subjective, a matter of one's own opinion. This really needs to be in the 'Conspiracy' category.

I really don't care about any of this. So... the history of mankind is ugly. People suck. Is this news? As for meds...most people probably just need talk therapy, exercise, and diet/lifestyle modification instead of medication. But there are those of us who would suffer at a level you couldn't fathom without meds. My husband, who suffers from the same mental illness that caused his mother and grandfather to commit suicide, has had his life saved by psych meds. Mine allow me to get out of bed in the morning. They could be *made out of Hitler* for all I care. This is Scientology propaganda, btw, so take it with a grain of salt. Hail Xenu!

This is a propaganda film produced by a front group for the Church of Scientology. This is an abominable thing because it perpetuates misunderstanding and stigmatization of those with mental illness. If believed it will prevent those who are suffering from seeking treatment. The anti-psychiatry movement only leads to the unnecessary suffering and death of individuals.

I know it's scary to deal with mental illness and anti-psychotic drugs because I have been through that. But most of that comes from the sense that psychiatry is a newer field of science that isn't as exact or socially trusted as older fields. But, long ago all surgery was new and dangerous, but humans didn't give up and now most people's lives have been improved or saved by some type of surgery. So don't deny yourself help because you are afraid or because others judge you.

Also it is incredibly insulting and juvenile to pull the nazi card.
