NAMI & CHADD spread the neuro-biological lie which holds that
psychologic/psychiatric conditions are medical/neurological diseases;
biologically based diseases, due to 'chemical imbalances of the brain'
'chemical balancers'--pills. Further, they spearhead the involuntary,
forced treatment of their sham, illusory 'diseases.' They are joined in
the legislators and judiciary of the nation in what has become the most
all assaults on the civil liberties of US citizens.
See empty claim of Rex Cowdry, MD, of NAMI in testimony to Congress, that
and all mental conditions are 'diseases'; that children/adults with them are
diseased, have physical abnormalities, just like persons with diabetes,
