Tokyo Conference Exposes Abuses of Psychiatry

Conference at the Church of Scientology of Tokyo sheds light on psychiatric criminality 

Church of Scientology Tokyo hosted a forum to educate the community on the devastating effect of proposed legislation with its implementation of fraudulent screening and psychiatric drugging of children.

Among those attending were legislators, social workers, medical and legal professionals.

The conference began with a presentation from a health professional focusing on the increased fraudulent diagnoses of Japanese children with so-called developmental disorders. He referred to studies of known and published side effects of psychiatric drugs from pharmaceutical makers, noting that they greatly increase the risk of suicide, already a serious problem among Japanese youth.

He exposed incriminating financial ties between a leading Japanese psychiatrist, an authority on developmental disorders, and pharmaceutical companies.

He revealed the outrageous news that psychiatrists frequently diagnose children after no more than a five-minute interview, and that it is completely unethical to make such a judgment call.

Another presenter, an attorney, focused on a serious problem in the legal system where judges rely on psychiatric opinion or testimony for the involuntary hospitalization and temporary custody of children, despite no official standard of judgment or protocol for such opinions.

Special guest speaker was Mr. Steve Green, Executive Director of Citizens Commission on Human Rights New Zealand.

Mr. Green spoke of psychiatry’s criminal failure to provide any standard for the diagnosis of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), opening the door to the prescription of dangerous psychiatric drugs to children.

The director of the Nagano chapter of CCHR Japan then presented specific steps a parent can take to protect their children from psychiatric abuses.

Citizens Commission on Human Rights (CCHR) is a nonprofit charitable mental health watchdog co-founded in 1969 by the Church of Scientology and professor of psychiatry emeritus, the late Dr. Thomas Szasz. It is dedicated to eradicating psychiatric abuses and ensuring patient protection.

The Scientology religion was founded by author and philosopher L. Ron Hubbard. The first Church of Scientology was formed in Los Angeles in 1954 and the religion has expanded to more than 11,000 Churches, Missions and affiliated groups, with millions of members in 167 countries.
