NATIONAL EMPOWERMENT CENTER (NEC) Calls for
Peer-Delivered Community services Instead of more Forced Treatment
"The best means to help people recover from mental nealth issues is by funding more voluntary, community-based services delivered by people who have ourselves recovered: people who relate mutually or peers. Peers uniquely connect with the persons in distress in a non-stigmatizing, egalitarian manner because we have been through siimilar exoeruences. Peers operate respite centers, which are alternatives to more traumatic hospitalizations, and work as wellness coaches in health centers to help integrate mental health and medical care. Peers also teach the public how to help each other through emotional distress by a peer-developed program called emotional CPR (eCPR). Also peers are learning community-based, voluntary open Dialogue from Finland. Click here to view press release
"The frequency of schizophrenia in that region
went from one of the highest in the world.........
They now have the BEST RESEARCHED RECOVERY RATE IN THE WORLD...
Since the use of drugs as the standard of care of schizophrenia in the U.S. our mental health disability rate has increased 300%.
Guardinaship Hearing Friday April 19, 2012 Clark County Courthouse 1:30
12th and Franklin Vancouver, WA
Update 5/2013: Thanks to all of you who showed up. There were at least 18 people at the court wearing the MOMS symbol around their neck...a heart, symbolizing "creating communities where the heart can heal." Round 1 had both victories and challenges. The guardian chosen by GAL Lisa Rasmussen disqualified himself because I entered his citations into the court record.For round 2, I have the support of an amazing attorney who is guiding me. I am still fighting to be the guardian of my son. I will keep updating here.
Be sure and scroll way down to the breaking new video on risperdal, the very toxic drug they are injecting my son with, despite their horrendous side effects and the diseases this drug has induced in my son.The treatment team, especially social worker David Getty and G.A.L.Lisa Rasmussen have been thoroughly informed of the dangers of this drug and its extremely toxic effect on my son. This is one of the most expensive forms of the drug, and itscost is added on top of the $580/day the hospital charges medicare for this so-called treatment. Attend one of the events above to find out how this is just one of the ways people are propertized for profit!

Picking Cotton... The New Jim Crow part 2
Although the dragnet of incompetent to stand trial effects people of all races and genders,
this forced lock-up, especially targets young African American men; and treatment is reminiscent of the slave days. Western State has labeled many young African American Men incompetent to stand trial and locked some up for years, without ever getting their day in court. As property they make their master's profit, not by picking cotton, but by popping pills... confined by law, restrained by tranquilizers to the plantation. (coming soon, article on unexplained increase in Washington State's "Incompetent to Stand Trial Rulings.")
Breaking New Video on Risperdal the most recommended
pill for popping / for profit and its devastating effects!
Horrendous side effects, including breast growth and need for masectomy by men and Multiple Lawsuits
Why has Siddharta Fisher not recovered from any of his traumas reported in
WSH hospital records since 1995??? Could it be he has not been treated for them?
OVER ONE QUARTER MILLION DOLLARS for WRONG TREATMENT IN 2012
2013 dollar count as of May 5 ..$580/day x 125 days
Watch the above video...My son is one of those they talk about
1. given prescription off label at age 17
2. first prescription was over 1000% above recomended dosage
3. currently, at age 36 is given injectible form of risperdal discussed in movie as the best money make maker
4. multiple articles emailed to doctor and multiple objections by his former Durable Power of Attorney completely ignored.
Another MUST WATCH VIDEO about the WRONG Treatment click here, scroll down to last short video first, and then watch the other 2
Cost to payers for hospitalizing but NOT treating my son, Siddharta Fisher, for trauma at WSH in 2012 Over $250,000.00
In the over 15 times he has been hospitalized at WSH and NOT treated for traumas reported in his hospital records ,
OVER $$$ ONE MILLION DOLLARS $$$$$

Washington sued in 2012 and won? Why are they still letting doctors prescribe this drug?
This forced treatment is reminiscent of the slave days...because Westrn State has been directly involved in labeling many young African American men incompetent to stand trial and locked them up for years. Seems like instead of picking cotton for profit, they are forced to pop pills for profit, pills that harm the mind body and Spirit

3rd leading cause of death of young people age 15-24;
millions of preshool and older children being drugged;
1 in 6 soldiers in war given antipsychotic drugs... and then you will understand the need for
FACT: The 3rd leading cause of death of young people age 15-24 is suicide! Many more attempt it and are hospitalized!
What is it about our society, our community, our families, that our Young People
are saying NO to with such finality! Could it be
the village could give them a
vision worth living for?
FACT: Psychiatric drugging of preschool and elementary children to "fit in" our schools, our communities, and our homes has risen 35 fold in the last 20 years!"As of 2008, upwards of a million children in the United States—in many cases preschoolers—are on "mood-stabilizers" for bipolar disorder alone, even though the condition remains unrecognized in the rest of the world.
Is the natural wonder, curiosity, and desire to learn really broken in millions of our preschool and school age children; and the antidote is drugs as strong and addictive as cocaine???(250 children a day are added to the social security disability roles.) or is it that the mentorship, and true education are a function of the village
FACT: Military doctors are medicating 1 in 6 soldiers with psychotropic drugs.
Use of psychiatric drugs has spiked; concerns surface about suicide, and
The war on terror proved to be a major deception of the worst kind...perhaps it was/is a war on us! Will 1/3 of these US Soldiers return home only to become the new generation of prison inmates, homeless, or death by suicide or homicide statistics ...NOT because they suffer from PTSD, but from the horrendous side-effects of homicide or suicide thoughts and actions induced by psychiatric drugs? Not only are they given these drugs while fighting on foreign soil, but they are often given them when they return home to deal with the nightmare war, waged in their own mind.They too need the Village to heal and keep from perishing .
It takes a Village to raise a child.
Without a Village the children will perish ,
Without a (Village) Vision the people will perish!
Its Time to Raise the Village!

Targeting Our Children:
A FORM of SOCIAL CONTROL!
This is what we are up against!
(This is a quote from Dr. Peter Breggin's Website...)
The widespread diagnosing of children is a subtle form of social control that suppresses children rather than providing them with what they need to fulfill their basic needs in the home, school and family (and I would add, the community/village).
MOTHERS: A WARNING FROM DR. BREGGIN
"... the medical and scientific authorities, and the weight of the universities and government, wholly support this rampant abuse of children. From the systematic abuse of women, children and minorities throughout the ages to the institution of slavery and the Holocaust, those in authority have condoned and benefited from these abuses. Authority at the top of society always justifies these widespread abuses, otherwise the abuses would never get started, nor would they persist.
Reject the authorities. Rely on common sense, sound ethics and real science. Allow yourself to become empathic toward these abused children. Then become angry, energized, motivated and engaged. Educate yourself. My books and those of many others will introduce you to a new world of science, education and philosophy about childhood and children. Find your own way to protest and to make a difference. Join us at empathictherapy.com
in our efforts to protect our nation's children from psychiatric abuse and to offer them genuine love, inspiration, service and education."
For more information about social control and youngsters see the Children's section under Special Topics and Children's section under Scientific Papers, as well as several of Dr. Breggin's books, especially
Brain-Disabling Treatments in Psychiatry

A PERSONAL CONCLUSION
by Dr. Peter Breggin
I am white and Jewish. It feels like a special honor to work in close association with African Americans on behalf of human liberty and mutual respect. As I look back on the fight against the first and second violence initiatives,(these initiatives are actual government documents that focused on targeting Afrcan American children) it strikes me that the victories would not have been won without the vigorous participation of African Americans. Often the dominant white society seems indifferent to the various psychiatric abuses, whether they affected blacks or the entire society. For example, I had little success in opposing the return of lobotomy until its effects on the blacks aroused their concerns. Right now the drugging of children in general escalates in America, with millions of school-boys and girls on Ritalin and other psychiatric medications. Yet it is only among blacks that I have found any concerted ethical or spiritual outrage over the medical diagnosing and drugging of America's children. It is ironic indeed that the black community remains a bulwark of ethics, social conscience, and empathy for children within the very society that so oppresses it.
