Do not "believe" in the mental health system: it is invalid, immoral, and harmful. It is based on a pseudo-science. It derives its "authority" from governmental coercion & the financing of the pharmaceutical and insurance industries.
State Licensure is Invalid
The State Mental Health System claims total authority over the practice and study of "psychology." But the State, and most especially today's post-Christian State, can never control the real practice and "study of the soul," and in fact its mental health system does not even recognize the existence of the soul. The State can never be the final arbitrator of what is truly human, of what is moral or immoral, of what is righteous or vicious, and yet that is what its mental health system postures to be. Indeed, the Mental Health System seeks to usurp the Church as today's de facto moral magisterium.
The pseudo-science of the mental health system is espoused in the DSM. But the DSM's nosology (classification of diseases) is tantamount to quackery, for it is based upon the mere groupings of symptoms rather than etiology or pathogenesis. All licensed clinicians, be they psychologists, psychiatrists, or counselors must ascribe to this pseudo-science and its invalid classifications of disease and fictional diagnoses.
The practice of clinical psychology, though proclaimed to be subsumed under a "medical" and pharmacological model, invalidly proclaims moral "truths" about the human person in general and the individual person in particular, and subsequently persuades both society and its patients to assent to these truths and choose them as goods. In that the State controlled Mental Health System invalidly claims complete authority to license and censure what it terms "psychology," it has likewise assumed unto itself the absolute authority to determine what is true and good. The mental health system brooks absolutely no dissent as to its moral pontifications, for it demands a blind faith in its validity, and thus both disallows free speech among its practitioners and does violence unto the voice of conscience and freewill in its patients. Needless to say, such a mentality does not bode well for those in the mental health system, be they patients or practitioners.
State Licensure is Immoral
The mental health system, and those professions under its control, hold all licensed clinicians to be agents of the State first and foremost and require these clinicians to serve that State. This subservience to the state by licensed mental health clinicians includes the absolute requirement to archive and turn over of all patient records at the State's request regardless of a patient's best interests or wishes.The State controlled mental health system deems it unethical for any licensed practitioner to place their patient's interests above the State's interests; viz,. it is deemed "unprofessional conduct" for a mental health clinician to refuse to become a State informant against his patients. Thus any modicum of true ethical adherence requires the rejecting of the mental health system, its licensure and prostituted "professionalism."
Caveat emptor: All licensed mental health providers are agents of the State first and foremost and must keep all clinical records and notes on their patients archived so as to turn them over to the State for any reason (even divorce or other hostile legal proceedings) and at any time when the State, courts, or licensing boards so order. This mandatory release of so-called "confidential" records is to be done regardless of the patient's wishes or the harm it may cause the patient. Though the mental health system pretends there is confidential, the fact is that when a person sees a mental health provider he forgoes any confidentiality. This lack of patient confidentiality in and of itself warrants the rejection of the mental health system.
Finally, the State sanctioned mental health system, and most pertinently the State licensed profession of clinical psychology, is the primary purveyor of perversity in the West. With both virulent anti-family and traditional gender roles agendas, the mental health system not only promotes vice but condemns virtue.
The Valid & Moral Science of PsychomoralitiCS
While the study and practice of clinical psychology and its aligned professions have been compromised, weaponized, and politicized in total socialistic subservience to the State and corrupted by governmental, pharmaceutical, and insurance industries subsidies, psychomoralitics, which is the true science of the soul, is totally independent of such entities and will always put the good of the individual therapant above all else. For the spiritual science of psychomoralitics reaffirms that the human soul in God's image transcends the State and indeed all worldly powers and principalities. Psychomoralitics' freeing of its therapants from inner-most psychomoral bondage concurrently facilitates their freedom from the bondage of ego enhancing and manipulating psychotherapies, psychotropic constraints and anesthetizations, and, as such, from political and social bondage as well. Thus, psychomoralitics, which is nothing less than a soul-deep intervention, repudiated all State sanctions and claims of authority over its practice and derives its validation from its being a fully explicated science, the integrity of its practitioners, and its empirically testified to results.
