A profession that is seemingly obsessed with enforcing the status quo. Genuine emotional understanding, empathy, and deep interactions have been replaced by some supposedly 'objective science'; a mere attempt to ignore the talent that some have with relating to others and medicalize emotions. Whether a person has a 'disorder' or 'disease' is not determined by whether someone has a visible ailment that has a specific biological cause, but by a system of observed behaviors that can wildly vary from psychiatrist to psychiatrist.
Many people trust the field of psychiatry simply because it involves 'doctors'. People in modern society have been taught to believe anything that the man in the white lab coat says, regardless of whether he or she is actually a doctor.
Psychiatry is also involved in 'prescribing' huge quantities of often dangerous drugs; though for some they do blunt or alleviate symptoms (about as good as alcohol), many experience 'positive effects' only in the vein of placebo, or experience only negative effects. This, however, does not mean that the drugs actually CURE anything. Psychiatric drugs are supposed to work by 'building up in your bloodstream', which is a way to convince 'patients' that they are receiving legitimate treatment, and is nothing short of a complete lie. Most of this happens because of pharmaceutical company involvement. Most 'research' is horribly skewed to promote the companies' drugs, as the variables are EXTREMELY subjective, i.e. a 'rating' scale for 'depression'.
All in all, most psychiatrists are not 'evil', just controlled by a few money obsessed individuals who would rather enforce the status quo; hence blind leading the blind. Some psychiatrists do desire to change the field, but have a hard time getting through the system if they don't shut up and try to think for themselves. Many 'professionals' in the field are arrogant because they have been taught to believe that they can understand others well by essentially wasting time learning utter nonsense in 'university'. There has never been proof of mental disorders originating from 'biochemical factors' or any 'genetic chemical imbalance', but psychiatry dangerously takes the technical reality that biochemical/genetic factors are involved in everything in our lives and takes the huge logical leap to the idea that we end up miserable BECAUSE something goes 'wrong' in the brain. The reality is the opposite. The brain adjusts to negative circumstances just as it does to positive, and a change of circumstances coupled with emotional healing will always be more effective than any kind of psychiatry/placebo effect. People just don't have the patience, and those at the top are not willing to admit that the cause of all this suffering is a poor status quo combined with rigid enforcement of such 'norms', and materialism gone rampant.
Critics of psychiatry are sometimes intelligent, but sometimes include idiots like Tom Cruise. Avoid them at all costs. Unfortunately, people like him have given anti-psychiatry a bad name, even if his basic premise may have some merit.
Indeed, I HAVE had a 'major mental disorder', and the 'medications' me on did nothing but mess my life up worse. With a change of attitude (which demonstrates the reality that a person in extreme distress can change if they are given even a bit of hope), I pulled myself out of extreme, chronic depression that most psychiatrists would have insisted was a 'chemical imbalance'. Healing from emotional stress is a long and arduous process which requires relation and collaboration with emotionally intelligent and wise individuals, not popping pills. Psychiatry is little more than an attempt to make money which exploits others' arrogance.

Psychiatry is pseudoscience (fake) and a waste of money in society. It serves to control people, like religion, feeding them lies and absolute bullshit that they are expected to believe. A bane of our times. A dangerous medical field that relies on drugging and torturing normal people for no reason at all. Psychiatry no doubt is an evil endeavor, a pointless proposition and a total travesty. Psychiatrists are the evil minions of the whatever hell-spawn you believe in. A movement is under way to free peoples' minds: anti-psychiatry, a growing grassroots movement to rid the world of anyone who thinks mental illnesses actually exist.
Contrary to a previous definition, people who hate psychiatry probably have never had a mental illness since mental illness isn't even real.
Psychiatry killed the cat, nothing can bring him back!
Psychiatry? Oh, let me refer you to pseudosciences category.
Oh no, not again. Johnny thinks psychiatry can help him a little, when really it has him tricked and will probably kill him shortly.
Racketeering; A brainwashing cult. If you knew you could lose rights by seeing a psych. prof., you would have to be a fool to see one; well you can lose rights by seeing a psych prof., even your right to vote.
If a patient tells his doctor the medicine isn't working, it is increased (along with it's unpleasant painful side effects) until the patient sings the medicine's praises out of the fear of death and suicide caused by and wholly related to the medicine. Indirect death threats is how psychiatrist subdue, intimidate people. (a listed side-effect of anti-psychotic medication, Haldol, is death.) Sure lots of patients die of related strokes, murders, suicides, and side-effects, but these expendable people are acceptable losses in the war for psychiatry. Psychs deliberately anger patients, who then stressfully suppress their rage making them seem ill. Unlike prison sentences, psych treatments are administered indefinately to cause fears and anger in the patients; causing episodes that get used to justify psychiatry and boost stock revenues. The goal of psychiatry is to cause worry, anger and confusion and treat. The med related deaths serve to help the psych mob intimidate and make their patients seem so sick they have to take life-threatening medicine by force to treat imbalances cause by genes they 'might' have. This is a form of racism, but is called 'scientific progress' by freedom hating psychs. Psychiatry Psucks, but don't worry about it, lest. . .
A medical specialization satanized by people who have nothing to talk about and/or write self-help books. Usually they need mental counseling themselves, they just don't have the IQ required to know who a good psychiatrist is.
Usually people who are "against" psychiatry and psychiatric medications have never suffered from a major mental disorder, so SHUT THE F**K UP
-I know the history of neurosurgery. Can I operate on your brain?
-Thousands of people have benefited from psychiatric medications and well trained physicians. You should listen to them instead of ENTERTEINER Tom Cruise.
-Antidepressants and antipsychotic drugs have side effects because they are evil. People should never take antibiotics. They have side effects, that makes them evil too.
-Tom Cruise seems to suffer from manic-depressive disorder. He could use the help of psychiatry.
-If vitamins keep Tom Cruise sane and grounded, pass the Prozac.
