How Psychiatry Sells Mental Illness and Pushes Pills That  Kill

Psyched Out: How Psychiatry Sells Mental Illness and Pushes Pills That Kill is an in-depth investigation into the fraud of psychiatric diagnosing and the dangerous, potentially life-threatening adverse reactions connected to the prescription mind-altering drugs used as “treatment.”

It is not a book that the psychiatric community or the pharmaceutical industry will appreciate because it exposes the lack of science to support even one psychiatric mental disorder being an objective, confirmable abnormality of the brain, and it further provides the People with the whole truth about the alleged mind-altering “treatments” that are reported to target specific alleged mental abnormalities, which the pharmaceutical companies openly admit they do not understand how the drugs work in the human brain in the treatment of the stated alleged mental illnesses.

The well-known, yet completely theoretical, “chemical imbalance” is debunked by some of the nation’s leading experts. Never in the history of the world has science discovered what the correct brain chemical levels are for any living person, making it impossible to know if these naturally occurring chemicals are out of balance. And, in fact, a test that measures a person’s brain chemicals does not even exist.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Award-winning investigative reporter Kelly O’Meara’s coverage of the adverse effects of psychiatric mind-altering drugs is virtually unmatched by any other journalist in the United States. During her six-year tenure (1998-2004) at The Washington Times’ Insight magazine, O’Meara wrote a series of articles (more than two dozen) examining the prescription drug industry and the connection between prescription psychiatric drugs and the increasing number of school shootings. She focused heavily on the lack of science behind the psychiatric diagnoses for which the drugs are prescribed, and the adverse reactions linked to antidepressants. Her articles resulted in record sales of the issues in which they appeared, as well as press coverage and interview requests that continue to this day. Among the national and international press that have featured her articles or asked her to appear are Fox News, the O’Reilly Factor, CBS News, BBC, ABC’s 20/20 and Hannity and Colmes.
For her work, The National Foundation for Women Legislators named O’Meara Investigative Reporter of the Year in 2001 and the following year, the Citizens Commission on Human Rights gave her their International Human Rights Award.

Other major investigative reports that O’Meara filed while at Insight include a 12-part series entitled How the Money Works, that probed Federal agency financial reporting. Her examinations of annual updates of department and agency audits focusing on missing money showed that trillions go unaccounted for at agencies such as the Department of Defense and the Department of Housing and Urban Development.

In another series, U.S. Money Laundering, O’Meara looked at Enron, the Bank of New York and an estimated $500 billion of annual money laundering in the U.S. financial system. She also explored the relationship between Washington and capital markets.

In her series, Local Government Corruption, O’Meara investigated corruption in county governments and the judiciary, specifically the County of Los Angeles court system. She was the first reporter to break the story of the Los Angeles judges’ slush fund account and trigger an independent audit of that account, which has since been transferred to the county. She received the 1999 Friend of the Child Award from the California Protective Parents Association for her articles on the Los Angeles family courts.

Prior to working as an investigative journalist, O’Meara spent sixteen years on Capitol Hill. In 1996, as Administrative Assistant for Congressman Michael P. Forbes (R., NY), she was the lead investigator for the 1996 TWA 800 air disaster off the coast of Long Island, New York. As a caseworker for Congressman Raymond J. McGrath (R., NY), whom she served from 1981 to 1992, she conducted a three-year investigation into the 1987 controversial death of a Marine Corporal, who was serving in San Salvador at the time. O’Meara also served on the staff of Congressman David A. Levy (R. NY) and Congressman Kika de la Garza (D. TX). She holds a B.S. in Political Science from the University of Maryland.
