Life Coach, BPD and Mental Health Coach, A.J. Mahari, in a video, asks how mental illness can even actually really be adequately defined let alone defined as practically anything and everything psychiatry feels like pathologizing according to the newest version of their “bible of psychiatry” – the DSM 5. Dr. Niall McClaren, an Australian Psychiatrist for over 35 years, believes that the DSM 5 goes way too far and far enough or beyond far enough to diagnose practically everyone with some form of what they’d define as a mental illness requiring drugs. Psychiatry, biopsychiatry, and the DSM 5 are so out of control, they could now find reason within their own “bible of psychiatry” to diagnose a “ham sandwich” with just about anything.
No one oversees the “working group” who write each version of the Diagnostic Statistical Manual (DSM). The “working group” of psychiatrists who write, essentially whatever they want, based often on “theories” they now purport to be positive proof science that is really more Big Pharma funded pseudo-science instead. No one, not even with in the “profession” of Psychiatry gets to change or stop whatever the “working group” decides to list as a mental illness and establish some “diagnostic criteria” for.

As, Dr. Niall McClaren, M.D., an Australian Psychiatrist has said about the out-of-control nature of his own profession, Psychiatry, and more to the point Big Pharma funded biopsychiatry (the belief that mental illness is a brain disease or disorder that needs to be medicated) which is really just an attempt to make big money selling Big Pharma’s very dangerous psychiatric meds. Also, Dr. McClaren, believe that what has risen with this Big Pharma industry merging with Psychiatry, first in the United States is an attempt on the part of the “profession” to try and establish themselves as “real doctors” like medical doctors (at the patient’s expense, literally, and psychologically). They are trying to legitimize themselves as medical doctors by forwarding an unproven and dangerous notion of “science” that all mental illness (which they’ve really never defined in the sense that they have not ever defined mental health) is biological – which of course it isn’t. They want people to believe this for their own purposes and benefits and not for the benefits of their patients.
