Royal College of Psychiatrists International Congress 2018's 'Greeting' from CCHR UK

This year, the Royal College of Psychiatrists International Congress was at the Birmingham International Conference Centre (ICC) and it started on Sunday 24th June 2018. The Citizens Commission on Human Rights UK (CCHR UK) was there in full force to "welcome" those psychiatrists attending the Congress by making sure their presence was felt.

CCHR UK Protesters, approximately 50-strong, gathered outside the Town Hall, chanting "Love Me, Don't Drug Me" with reference to drugs such as Ritalin given to children for the fictitious "disease" of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), and then marched to the ICC carrying a large banner and placards that read "Psychiatry: Junk Science & Dangerous Drugs" and "Psychiatry: Labelling and Drugging Children For Profit".

For several hours, the group of protesters remained outside the ICC chanting and holding their banners in full view of psychiatrists entering and leaving the building. Thousands of fliers entitled Ten Things You Should Know About Psychiatry which laid out the dangers of psychiatric treatment were also distributed to the psychiatrists attending the Congress as well as passers-by.

The protesters then marched to 100 Sherlock Street, Birmingham B5 6LT for the official opening of CCHR's FREE exhibition entitled Psychiatry - An Industry of Death. The guest of honour who cut the ribbon was Awil Hussein, MBE. Here's what he said in his opening speech:

There are over 20 million children, worldwide, on psychiatric drugs. They are prescribed for a multitude of disorders that are not evidence-based and have no scientific validity.
Psychiatrists have come to realise that after decades of drugging their patients with no resultant cure, that these drugs don't work. They are now pushing other barbaric "treatments" such as electroshock (ECT) and deep brain stimulation form of electroshocking the brain. 
So I am happy to welcome back to Birmingham for the 6th time The Citizens Commission on Human Rights and their Industry of Death Exhibition.

Psychiatry: An Industry of Death was officially opened by Awil Hussein, MBE (third from left)

The exhibition aims not only to educate and inform but to bring “practical guidance for lawmakers, doctors, human rights advocates and private citizens to take action in their own sphere and thereby force psychiatry to account for its crimes and abuses.”

Rare photos and artefacts, documentary films and multimedia exhibits construct a vivid account of criminal abuse and human suffering.

There are also graphic displays of psychosurgery, forced restraints, and sadistic psychiatric treatments such as high-voltage electroshock (ECT) and frontal and ice pick lobotomy.

Perhaps most unsettling is the Holocaust exhibit, documenting psychiatry’s role in Hitler’s rise to power and in fueling Nazi euthanasia programs that involved the extermination of some 300,000 people labeled mentally ill. The exhibit lays out the “psychiatric movement that would cause the deaths of millions,” in cringe-worthy detail, such as how German psychologists of that era conducted their work in behaviour modification in the same fashion as animal training.

The museum tragically illustrates how drug overdoses and suicides, which CCHR exposes, are exacerbated or generated by psychiatric drugs, prematurely extinguished some of Hollywood’s brightest lights, including Kurt Cobain (prescribed Ritalin), Marilyn Monroe (succumbed to an overdose of sleeping pills after meeting with a psychiatrist), and numerous others.

The rash of school shootings is another area of the human tragedy fueled by psychiatry, according to information presented in the museum. Columbine High School shooter Eric Harris, for example, was under the influence of the antidepressant Luvox at the time of the 1999 massacre in Colorado. It turns out that mind-altering drugs are a common thread with 39 other instances of school gun-related violence.

Sections of the museum also expose the involvement of individual psychiatrists in rape, torture, child molestation and other crimes. Case after case presented raises the question of whether the treatment for mental illness doesn’t often prove more destructive than the malady itself, and suggests that behind a façade of respectability lurk predators in white coats.

Thanks to the rarity and wide variety of information provided, the museum is a beacon for lawmakers, doctors, human rights advocates, healthcare professionals, students and citizens interested or working in the areas of psychiatric abuses, over-medication, and general mental health. There is hope for the future if people are inspired to turn the psychiatric abuse equation around beginning with themselves and their own lives. And as a definitive resource on historical and contemporary theories and practices, Psychiatry: An Industry of Death already has made a difference.

The FREE exhibition is at 100 Sherlock Street, Birmingham B5 6LT and is open from 11am to 8pm until Wed 27th June 2018.

Bigotry, Hatred and Lies Exposed: Hatemonger, Jill Lazarto Burress Dickerhoof, of East Canton, Ohio lied that her daughter had died!

Jill Lazarto Burress Dickerhoof
In October of 2017, Jill Lazarto Burress Dickerhoof, a registered nurse of East Canton, Ohio, started attacking the Church of Scientology for reasons known only to herself.

Tweeting then as @JillianRN (but now as @JillCares), she began by tweeting an excerpt from L. Ron Hubbard's book on the human mind, Dianetics - The Modern Science of Mental Health which she purposely took out of context in order to give the wrong impression of what it really meant.

Twitter user Gemma Harris (@gemthetwit) challenged her by telling her what she tweeted was taken out of context and asking her if she has actually read Dianetics.

She firstly admitted, vehemently, that she had not read the book. Then, the next day, she not only claimed that she had read the book, she also claimed she taught it in University!

Suspecting that she had not, in fact, read the book, Gemma challenged her by asking her if she could explain what an engram was. She then claimed that Gemma should know who she was because she implied that she was a well-known author.

Gemma never found any evidence of this.

She also stated she had never been to a Church of Scientology and then implied that she was well known to the Church and that she had even just been at a Church!

She even implied that she was, in fact, a Scientologist herself!

So Gemma asked what her real name was and Jillian told her to ask the Church themselves. So Gemma took this as a challenge to find her real name in order to be able to ask the Church if her claim was true.

It transpired that Jillian had tweeted a photo of herself with her daughter, Alexis, taken from Alexis' Facebook profile which tagged Jillian's full name in the photo: Jill Lazarto Burress Dickerhoof.

Gemma then tweeted to her what her real name was, together with the photo of Jillian and daughter, as per her challenge, to which Jillian replied that Gemma was a "vile horrid person" because she had tweeted a photo of Alexis who was "no longer with us".

A group of allies of Jillian then tried to defend her by claiming that "no longer with us" did not mean "deceased", to which Jillian replied that "deceased" was exactly what she meant, and that Gemma had "spoken ill of the departed", thereby confirming that she was stating, as fact, that her daughter, Alexis, was dead.

Gemma, now suspecting everything that Jillian claimed as being untrue, she decided to find out whether her daughter's death was yet another lie. So she simply looked her up on Facebook and found her alive and well! Then, in a bizarre twist, Jillian, in a futile attempt to defend herself, claimed that the girl in the picture was not Alexis (who was indeed alive) but, in fact, her deceased twin sister.

Again, suspecting yet another lie, Gemma looked through Alexis' Facebook photos and found that Alexis does have a sister (who looks nothing like Alexis), but among photos of her when she was a child, there was no evidence of Alexis' "twin" sister.

As further proof, Gemma also found a photo of Alexis, taken on the same day as the photo that she tweeted of Alexis and her mother, wearing the exact same clothes, in which Alexis had been tagged as Alexis Burress.

In an attempt to deflect attention from her lies, because she works as a nurse at an institution for the criminally insane, Jillian then claims that Gemma has endangered her life by revealing her real name.

This is yet another lie, intended to deflect attention from Jillian's long list of previous lies, for the following reasons:
  • Jillian challenged Gemma to find her real name
  • Jillian had tweeted her own real name from her @JillianRN Twitter account because it appeared as text on the photo of her and Alexis (now deleted)
  • Her real name appears in full on her Facebook profile to this day

Jillian actually works for Altercare Integrated Health Services which mentions nothing about being an institution for the criminally insane on its website.

Jillian then accused Gemma of contacting her Facebook friends without providing any evidence. She also claimed that Gemma had contacted her husband's university where he works as a professor of theology. She also claimed she had an audio recording of the conversation which she has never revealed. Gemma did neither of these things.

Aware that Jillian was a practising Christian and the wife of Ed Dickerhoof, pastor of St Paul's United Church of Christ in East Canton, as well a Professor in the Theology Department at Canton's Malone University, Gemma asked Jillian how she justified inciting hatred and bigotry towards Scientology. Jillian's reply was that Gemma should never question her belief system.

She also bizarrely thought she could "blackmail" Gemma by "revealing her pregnancy". Gemma is not and never has been pregnant. Just more crazy ranting.

And she also tried to make an excuse as to why she made Gemma assume she was a Scientologist thus proving that she tried to deceive.

So, here are the main points in summary:

  • Jillian attacked Dianetics
  • Jillian admitted that she hadn't read Dianetics
  • Jillian then claimed that she had read Dianetics LIE!
  • Gemma proved that she hadn't read Dianetics
  • Jillian claimed she was a Scientologist! LIE!
  • Jillian challenged Gemma to find her real name
  • Gemma found her real name on a photo, online, posted by Jillian herself
  • Jillian claimed that her daughter in the photo was now dead LIE!
  • Gemma proved that her daughter was, in fact, alive
  • Jillian then claimed it was her twin sister who had died LIE!
  • Gemma proved that she never had a twin sister
  • Jillian claimed Gemma had put her life in danger by revealing her real name LIE!
  • Gemma proved that her real name is already openly online on Facebook

As you can see, Jillian has lied and lied, and lied again, even going so far as to make up a story that her own daughter was dead! She also incited hatred and bigotry about Scientology, and continues to do so. Sadly, this is typical hatemonger behaviour. The next time you hear or read someone spewing hatred about Scientology, I recommend you verify their claims very carefully.

Scientology glossary:
  • Dianetics: The word Dianetics is derived from the Greek dia, meaning “through,” and nous, “mind or soul.” Dianetics is further defined as “what the soul is doing to the body.” 
  • Engram: a complete recording, down to the last accurate detail, of every perception present in a moment of partial or full “unconsciousness.”
