HAS ANYONE NOTICED THAT TEEN SCREEN DOES NOT SCREEN FOR SUICIDE?
|What happens when a child takes the TeenScreen survey?|
Do they get diagnosed as "suicidal"?
They get "diagnosed" with one of the nearly 400 "disorders" listed in the DSM IV which has no such "disorder" as "Suicidality"
AND NONE OF THE DISRODERS LISTED ARE SAID TO LEAD TO SUICIDE EXCEPT BIPOLARITY AND MAJOR DEPRESSIVE DISORDER
But the survey findings - the 84% INCORRECT findings - are more likely to find "social anxiety disorder","conduct disorder", "disruptive behavior disorder" and many more of which NONE have anything to do with suicidality.
But they can be prescribed drugs for and billed.
Suicidality, not being in the DSM IV, cannot be prescribed for or billed.
Hence, it is ONLY a gimmick to get the other DSM IV listings assigned prescribed and billed for.
Screen for suicidality?
Only in the title of the program
Only in its mission statement
From there it goes off MO's (mission orders) and becomes "screening for DSM IV listed disorders" which are almost totally NOT suicidal per the book itself!
Oh well, thought I'd mention it in case it slipped by...

A Closer Look At the FDA's Black Box Warning Enforcement
Here is the FDA's statement and order to drug companies concerned to start letting their consumers know what they didn't for over 15 years - that the drugs they were taking to prevent suicidal thoughts are CAUSING suicidal thoughts - or worse! :

"Labeling Change Request Letter for Antidepressant Medications
[The following language would replace the current language under the WARNINGS-Clinical Worsening and Suicide Risk section.]
WARNINGS-Clinical Worsening and Suicide Risk
Patients with major depressive disorder (MDD), both adult and pediatric, may experience worsening of their depression and/or the emergence of suicidal ideation and behavior (suicidality) or unusual changes in behavior, whether or not they are taking antidepressant medications, and this risk may persist until significant remission occurs.
There has been a long-standing concern that antidepressants may have a role in inducing worsening of depression and the emergence of suicidality in certain patients.
A causal role for antidepressants in inducing suicidality has been established in pediatric patients.

PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT
|THERE IS NO SCIENTIFIC OR MEDICAL EVIDENCE REQUIRED FOR A PSYCHIATRIST TO DIAGNOSE A MENTAL DISORDER - NO BLOOD OR URINE TEST OR BRAIN SCAN.|
PSYCHIATRISTS PRESCRIBE MIND-NUMBING DRUGS AND ELECTROSHOCK TO COVER UP THE FACT THAT THEY HAVE NO IDEA OF WHAT IS WRONG WITH A PERSON AND HAVE NO CURES.
THE MORE THAN $100 BILLION SPENT ON PSYCHIATRY EACH YEAR WORLDWIDE IS A WASTE, NOT ONLY FINANCIALLY BUT ALSO IN WASTED AND DAMAGED LIVES.
Pass this on. Post it verbatim on your own blogs. Repeat it regularly on lines where it will be heard and seen!
This has been a Public Service Announcement

AND THIS FROM PEOPLE WHO HAVE THE HIGHEST SUICIDE RATE OF ANY PROFESSION!
(From Psychology Today online)
In this below article, the above authors talk very openly about the complete lack of use of psychiatrists' and psychologists' therapy on themselves and the fact that they often are the one's needing the therapy and their clients get their time wasted by the therapist laying his/her burdens down! (oddly enough such therapists don't use their own psych "tech" - and are resistive to coercion by their colleagues! -but usually take to drinking, meditation etc instead!) - This is an article you might want to fully read as it is 100% admission and exposure of NO TECH OF THE MIND in these fields!
More importantly, though ,is THEIR OWN SUICIDE RATE which the below excerpt covers!
Why are they trying to do anything about suicide prevention - ala Teen Screen - when they have the highest rate of any profession???
The more one LOOKS, the more one finds outlandish and outrageous contradictions of common sense!
It almost hurts it's so blatant!
"In a 1968 hospital study, psychiatrists reported reacting to patient suicides with feelings of "guilt and self-recrimination." Others considered the suicide to be "a direct act of spite" or said it was like being "fired." Whatever the reaction, the emotional toll is great.Bruno Bettelheim. Paul Federn. Wilhelm Stekel. Victor Tausk. Lawrence Kohlberg. Perhaps you recognize one or two of the names. They're all prominent mental health professionals who, like Freud, committed suicide.
"All too often the stresses of work and everyday life lead mental health professionals down this path. According to psychologist David Lester, Ph.D., director of the Center for the Study of Suicide, mental health professionals kill themselves at an abnormally high rate.
"Indeed, highly publicized reports about the suicide rate of psychiatrists led the American Psychiatric Association to create a Task Force on Suicide Prevention in the late 1970s. A study initiated by that task force, published in 1980, concluded that
"psychiatrists commit suicide at rates about twice those expected [of physicians]"
"the occurrence of suicides by psychiatrists is quite constant year-to-year, indicating a relatively stable over-supply of depressed psychiatrists."
No other medical specialty yielded such a high suicide rate."

Some Info On the Psychotropics Being Coerced Via Teenscreen
From the website www/popsci.com:
Last fall the FDA ruled that all antidepressants must carry the strongest possible safety warning after a review of tests revealed that the drugs trigger suicidal thoughts in 2 to 3 percent of kids and teens taking them.
The Prozac Paradox: Why Antidepressants May Exacerbate Depression and Anxiety in Some Kids and Teens
By Linda Marsa January 2005
"An estimated 20 million Americans have at one point or another relied on Prozac or one of its chemical siblings, including Paxil and Zoloft, to ease depression or anxiety. For most adults who take them, the drugs, known collectively as selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors, or SSRIs, work as advertised: Mood improves with increased levels of the brain chemical serotonin.
But a growing body of research is confirming long-standing suspicions that SSRIs harbor a dark side.
Instead of easing depression, in some patients they may intensify it and even induce suicidal or violent behavior.
This past October, Columbia University researchers stoked the debate with a study suggesting that exposure to Prozac in the womb and in early childhood may permanently alter the brain’s circuitry and disrupt neural development, leading to serious emotional disorders later in life. Scientists say that the results, published in the journal Science, raise serious concerns about the long-term safety of SSRIs in the estimated 1.75 million children now taking them.
In the experiment, researchers gave Prozac to a group of young mice during a period of brain development that corresponds with the last trimester of pregnancy through eight years of age in humans. Then they conducted a series of tests designed to measure confidence and ability to cope with stress. Compared with normal mice, adult mice given Prozac early in life were less willing to take risks to earn rewards, took longer to escape unpleasant sensations, and were more fearful of new surroundings—all behaviors associated with anxiety and depression in animals.
The underlying mechanism for this paradoxical effect is still unknown, but the investigators suspect that Prozac may impede the flow of naturally occurring serotonin in the brain. In healthy adults, serotonin acts as a chemical messenger that regulates mood by expediting the transmission of nerve impulses from one brain cell to another.
In infants and young children, though, the chemical also spurs the maturation of brain systems in the cerebral cortex and limbic system that govern emotional function. Of course, it’s a big leap from mice to people. But other research indicates that SSRIs may have the same influence on humans.
A study conducted last February at the Carolinas Medical Center in Charlotte compared 17 babies born to mothers who took SSRIs throughout their pregnancy with 17 babies whose mothers didn’t. The newborns exposed to the antidepressants were more likely to have tremors, became agitated more easily, and exhibited unusual sleep patterns—all symptoms of a stressed nervous system.
... [A]s Emory University psychologist and SSRI expert Paul Plotsky points out, there is a distinct possibility that “we may be changing the brain in subtle ways that we still don’t understand.” "
Teen Screen's Point of Origin: Got An Eraser?
From the Patent Office - where the Teenscreen postulate comes out of "nonbeing" into being.
This is something to consider being erased from the records as the error that it is:

Erase Teen Screen (#1 in a series)
If you really want to get rid of a problem
you must put your FULL attention on it.
THOROUGHLY VIEW it
down to its sources and origins
This will bring about an
"ERASURE" - a disentanglement and dissolution -
and a return to clarity and sanity.
TeenScreen is a problem of huge proportion as will be covered
ERASE TEENSCREEN !
(Continued on next blog)
Why Erase Teen Screen? (#2 in a series of 6)
My reasons for classifying TeenScreen as a problem of HUGE proportions comes directly and firstly from its own statistics from their surveys taken - which have 84% false positive results.
A "false positive result" means they have falsely "found" a child to be "mentally ill" and have then falsely labeled them with a disorder and falsely scheduled them for eventual drug prescriptions.It only takes the other 16% to make their survey 100% FALSE! - but there is plenty of evidence to support its complete 100% falseness.
Here is a true and typical example - in fact 84% typical:
A child was recently given the TeenScreen survey - a set of yes/no type questions which try to fish out possible mental health trouble. One of her questions asked "do you go out often?"
The 12 year old girl answered "no".
She explained later that she has to get sleep on school nights and only occasionally goes out on weekends - a pajama party or dinner at a friend's house. In other words - a very healthy answer behind the "no".
But this came up as reason enough to classify her as having "Social Anxiety Disorder" (a Disorder label listed in the Diagnostic & Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders which Teen Screen solely operates off of) and to tell her so - which basically traumatized her by making her think she was mentally ill.
And note the "stigmatization" is coming entirely from the erroneous TeenScreen.
And so it goes for the remaining 84% who will now be coerced into being prescribed a powerful psychotropic drug which can have side effects - including that of
Hence 84% of TeenScreen's false results can potentially be MADE to commit suicide!
But it doesn't clear up as to why TeenScreen is THIS incompetent!
(Find out why on my next blog!)
What SOURCE Does Teen Screen Draw it's Methodology From? (#3 in a series of 6)
On probing further, we find Teen Screen is drawing all of its methods from a book that freely admits throughout it that it has "no research to prove" the validity of any disorder or mental illness as stemming from a chemical imbalance of the brain.
This includes anything from Schizophrenia to Bipolar to Depression to "Written Expression Disorder" and all in between!
I'm referring to of course, the DSM IV.The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, fourth edition.
One out of many examples is Page 323 "Associated Laboratory Findings":
"No laboratory findings that are diagnostic of a major depressive episode have been identified"
That said, however, the DSM plows right ahead and FALSELY issues its list of some near 400 bogusly identified "disorders"
- again, as they admitted, based on "no laboratory findings"
- ie they said "oh well, we'll just make them up" !
And if you're asking how DID they pretend to derive these disorders (after making them up)?
- It turns out that a panel meets and brings up a disorder label and they simply VOTE on it!
- and it can be voted right back out later on - as was homosexuality.
After all, there never was any PROOF - just opinion!
Hence what is being labeled and drugged is an OPINION and not a physical disease nor chemical imbalance!
They then classify these fabricated "disorders" (without ANY proof and NO findings) as if they were chemical imbalances - all without tests, proof, research , NOTHING! - and simply hope nobody asks.
Or more to the point, they hope everyone will take the lie and run with it!
But, by being printed in this thick daunting reference book, they are now "official" and, most importantly, legal for psychotropic drugs to be prescribed.
This is out-in-the-open Orwellian double talk!
But who reads the DSM?
(Find out who actually READS the DSM in the next blog!)
Who Reads The DSM? (#4 in a series of 6)
Not enough of you or me!
And so no one gives a thorough enough viewing of this problem to make its painful consequences erase.
What would happen if every man and woman on the street picked up a copy of the DSM and scrutinized it??
Well, you say, it's a BIG daunting scholarly type "reference book" - dull, hard to keep up interest, hard to comprehend, convoluted with jargon, and it's meant for certain professions to read only. -
And this is a book after all about insanities! I might wig out if I read it!
Well, if you're thinking any of that
please get OVER yourself!
It's like thinking there's a monster in the box and then opening it to find Mutt and Jeff at their goofiest!
But those are a few of the reasons the DSM passes right by with total scam "officialdom" and nobody catches it.
Don't feel like the only one who missed it!
Physicians and members of the medical profession have missed it
Every time a "Mental Health Mandate" bill goes before a local or national Senate and House to be voted on
These Senates and Houses will not have studied the DSM IV to base their voting integrity
And yet the DSM is so "official" that laws are in the process of legislation to make it MANDATORY to have drugs prescribed out of the book and forced on children and adults!
The truth is the DSM is a book that screams with its own contradiction of its validity - its own out- loud admission that it is entirely false!
But who's listening?
Who's copying along with their own mind with understanding (a process called duplicating)?
Not the senators or congresspeople who have to vote on "Mandated Mental Health" legislation.
They should - shouldn't they? - to honestly be abreast of what they're passing into law?
But they don't!
And that is why ...
And That Is Why (#5 in a series of 6)
And that's why this bogus but extremely destructive purpose gets forwarded over everyone's heads.
That is why there is a Frankenstein monster gone runaway and rampant in overdrugging, overdiagnosing, overdosing and over-killing people of all walks!
Nobody is LOOKING -LITERALLY!
Well too many schools have been shot up by children who had "therapeutic doses" of a psych drug in their veins - and who were diagnosed as having been driven to their horrifying acts BY those drugs.
Too many children have committed suicide AFTER being put on psychiatric drugs - and as a direct result OF those drugs
-prescribed from a book that ADMITS - after Billions for research -
"no research has proven" that the disorders are from a chemical imbalance in the brain.
"No tests exist to determine such chemical imbalance"
Well they are being quite honest and telling us loud and clear :
"WE ARE BOGUS QUACKS
WE ARE CREATING PSYCHOTIC MURDERERS OUT OF YOUR CHILDREN
WE ARE CAUSING SUICIDE WHILE PRETENDING TO PREVENT IT WITH TEEN SCREEN AND PSYCHOTROPIC PHARMACEUTICALS AS A SURE FOLLOW UP
WE WANT EVERY HUMAN BEING ON EARTH DRUGGED FROM WOMB TO TOMB UNDER ENTIRELY FALSE PRETENSES"
But who's paying close enough attention?
CONCLUSION (#6 in a series of 6)
The cat's asleep while the sewer rats are infesting the once clean happy house!
It's our own fault if this truly silly and highly ignorant plan continues to contaminate population Earth by disguising its secret weapon as a thick book that is thought to be "too scholarly for you to understand".
Don't take this nonsense any more
start ASKING QUESTIONS.
It's really OUR fault if we let this cowardly criminal bunch turn loose a fascism of drugging, death and false labelling as "mentally ill" all humanity.
Are we THAT ASLEEP?
We need only
