The National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) has a long-running history of severe and even fraudulent wastage of taxpayer funds.
“Newly obtained records raise additional concerns about the research and oversight of Dr. Mani Pavuluri, a star pediatric psychiatrist at the University of Illinois at Chicago [UIC] whose clinical trial studying the effects of the powerful drug lithium on children was shuttered for misconduct.”
“A ProPublica Illinois investigation earlier this year revealed that the National Institute of Mental Health ordered the university to repay $3.1 million in grant money it had received to fund Pavuluri’s study.”
“NIMH demanded the refund, a rare rebuke, after determining there had been ‘serious and continuing noncompliance’ by Pavuluri as well as failures by the university’s institutional review board, or IRB, a faculty panel responsible for reviewing research involving human subjects.”
“Among other findings, NIMH concluded Pavuluri tested lithium on children younger than 13 though she was told not to and failed to properly alert parents of the study’s risks. A university investigation concluded she falsified data to cover up the misconduct, according to documents.”
“She resigned from UIC effective June 30”, 2018.
“She plans to open a treatment center, called the Brain and Wellness Institute, in Lincoln Park, according to a website.”
De-registered, even criminally charged and jailed psychiatric professionals can skip states, even countries and continue practicing. Some of the most infamous mental health criminals continue to “care” for the most vulnerable in society by simply changing offices, cities or countries.
Crime and fraud in the mental health industry is rampant. Psychiatric and psychological professional associations do not police ethical breaches, violations of law or criminality in their ranks. For these reasons, Citizens Commission on Human Rights developed a database that lists people in the mental health industry who have been criminally charged, convicted and/or sentenced as well as those who have been investigated and charged by state health care licensing boards.
Using this database at http://www.psychcrime.org/, members of the public, government agencies and others can track disciplinary or criminal cases, and verify whether a mental health practitioner has existing charges, and the result of prior charges including criminal or disciplinary records or convictions.
You can also consult the world’s largest collection of records on criminal and fraudulent psychiatrists at PsychSearch.net, and file a complaint against one.
After 69 years in business, and tens-of-billions-of-dollars appropriated, the research produced at NIMH has failed to identify a single biological cause of even one alleged psychiatric mental disorder. Instead, NIMH’s sister organization the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) within the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) publishes the fake news that 1 in 5 U.S. citizens are mentally ill, since they cannot prove it otherwise.
The cornerstone of psychiatry’s disease model today, is the concept that a brain-based, chemical imbalance underlies mental disease. While popularized by heavy public marketing, it is simply fanciful psychiatric thinking. As with all of psychiatry’s disease models, it has been thoroughly discredited by competent researchers.
