You don't have to be mad to call in . . . But, it helps. What do you want to talk about? A full-on attack of people who have been assigned a fraudulent psychiatric label is underway in America.  Pending legislation such as HR 3717, The Families in Mental Health Crisis Act, (the Murphy Bill) will not solve these societal problems.  While no one is defending the recent actions of several mass murders, they are being hauled out to the public in a drumbeat of fear mongering.  According to FBI data, in 2010, there were 12,996 murders.  The media does not focus on these. Instead, they isolate out the most heinous and sensationalized situations to condition the public to associate violence and psychiatric labels.  This is a fraud. Psychiatric profiling and an increased reliance on psychiatry as an answer will repeatedly fail us as a society.  All psychiatry offers are drugs and institutions. There are plenty of alternatives, that will not rob tax-payer expenditures, and produce better outcomes.  Not only does psychiatry cost tax-payers billions of dollars a year in terms of services and products, but it steals millions of dollars from our economy by preventing people who have been psychiatrically assigned from working, as they are mandated into psychiatric programming, creating jobs for psychiatric, legal, medical, and police and safety professionals.  It is widely accepted that the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual-V has little validity.  Evidence-based supports such as mutual assistance and self-help need to be fostered, and as a country, we must adopt trauma-informed care models. Tune in to Talk with Tenney for an another view on the Crisis in America; hear first hand stories of people who have been assigned a psychiatric label; call in reports of abuse, neglect, and deaths; or call in and ask questions.
