Anti-Psychiatry and the UN Assault on the Mentally Ill

By Marvin Ross

Author of Schizophrenia Medicine's Mystery Society's Shame

   This present book exposes the danger of anti-psychiatry beliefs and their infiltration into the UN and that body's Convention on the Rights of Disabled Persons. Anti-psychiatry is another manifestation of the growing anti-science views found in the anti-vax movement and in the rise of alternative medicine.

The book is an evidence based refutation of all the dribble spouted by the anti-psychiatry crowd which is becoming more entrenched. After the US election, I wrote in one of my blogs that I put anti-psychiatry in there with the anti-mask, anti-vax, alternative medicine proponents who are becoming more and more prevalent.

This volume exposes the danger of the anti-psychiatry beliefs and their infiltration into the UN and that body's Convention on the Rights of Disabled Persons. Many countries have signed on although a few like Canada and Australia refused to ratify the odious terms for psychiatry. The US has not signed but there is every indication that the Biden Presidency will sign it all.

Marvin Ross has been writing on these topics for a number of years in the Huffington Post (2011 to 2018). Since 2014, he has been writing a blog called Mind You Reflections on Mental Illness, Mental health and Life with psychiatrist David Laing Dawson (ranked 39th in the top 100 Mental Health Blogs, Websites and Influencers in 2021).

Ross's earlier book on schizophrenia was endorsed by the World Fellowship for Schizophrenia and Allied Disorders. Dr. E Fuller Torrey who wrote Understanding Schizophrenia found the book to be "very comprehensive".
