Finally - a ray of sanity as regards the psychiatric DSM

Bill HR0898 introduced into the Illinois General Assembly calls into question the vast network of psychiatric diagnoses established by the DSM (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders. Yay.

For too long this FICTIONAL diagnostic guide has been perpetrated. It has grown to the extent that any human behavior can be called abnormal.

You can read the bill on the Illinois General Assembly website at this address:

by selecting the clickable text: Full Text. It's only five pages long and very clearly written.

I hope that Illinois supports this bill.

To find out more about the DSM, go to the Citizens Commission on Human Rights site: and watch their well-documented videos.
