Scientology is not against Psychiatry

I keep seeing people making comments on news sites and blogs about how Jett Travolta didn't get proper treatment because Scientology is against Psychiatry.

This is not true. Scientologists and the Church of Scientology oppose abuses in the field of Psychiatry. For the official Church statement check here: Why is Scientology opposed to psychiatric abuse?

There are plenty of psychiatrists who agree with us that something is rotten in the state of Psychiatry such as Peter Breggin, Thomas Szasz and others. These courageous individuals are willing to stand up and say that something is wrong.

If you watch the "Making a Killing" video you will see many more mental health professionals who agree with us.

So in future when you see "Scientology is against Psychiatry" just read it as "Scientology is against Psychiatric abuse."
