CCHR wants a Congressional investigation of FDA alleged conflicts of interest in dealing with ECT!

Kelly Patricia O’Meara has reported the Citizens Commission on Human Rights (CCHR) has requested that Congress investigate what seems to be serious conflicts of interest which are driving the decision of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to allow the wider use electroshock “treatment” (ECT). It was reported by The Washington Post on July 18, 2016, that the FDA has determined that for some patients, the use of electroshock—up to 460 volts of damaging electricity through the brain, is beneficial and, therefore, justifies a lower risk classification for the shock device. The CCHR has charged that this could particularly put vulnerable children and the elderly at risk. The CCHR is right on target. ECT can cause brain damage and death in anyone and there is no scientific evidence to support ECT works at all.

The Harold Mandel, MD Natural Mental Health Care Reform Association


About Harold Mandel

After becoming a physician I became interested in Natural Health Care when I discovered that orthodox medicine often does not offer people what they are searching for when they are interested in their optimal health potential. I also developed an interest in working for mental health care reforms when I learned that mental health care human rights abuses are a very serious problem across the United States and internationally. I have devoted a major part of my professional career towards working to improve mental health care. I have founded "The Harold Mandel, MD Natural Mental Health Care Reform Association" and the "Mandel News Service" to help expose and wipe out mental health care human rights abuses while offering natural options for mental health care. Please be advised that unless otherwise stated the positions against psychiatry in this blog are solely based on my opinions. These opinions are not based on scientific studies. The commentaries in this blog are in no manners meant to take the place of medical treatment if such medical treatment is necessary. However, it is my advice to all readers that you should consult with health care providers who are not psychiatrists if you need help with your general health or mental health. And if at anytime psychiatrists force treatment on you I encourage you try to get help from a lawyer who has an interest in helping people fight unwanted psychiatric treatment. Also, please be advised that although reports herein are often very critical of US Department of Justice associated mental health care brutality I am a peace activist and I only support peaceful forms of protest!-Harold Mandel
