| false certification of mental illness of
women by husbands
We are raising the issue of false certification
of mental illness of many normal women by a psychiatrist Dr. Gupta
in Agra in connivance with the husbands who just wanted to get rid
off their wives. The TV channel "Aaj Tak" showed Dr. Gupta
boasting that his judgment cannot be challenged in court.
We are trying to organize a seminar on
the issue mentioned above. The above kind of thing is possible because
there are some lacunae in the current Mental Health Act that exclusively
favors the psychiatrists and literall gives them magisterial powers.
We will also propose some solutions so
that the above malice is not repeated.
The second issue that I wish to raise
and appeal you also to raise is that the right of educated and informed
citizens to take care of our health ourselves by means of high doses
of vitamins and essential fats and amino acids (proteins) should be
protected. These nutritional supplements should be left out of the
prescription limit. They should be available without prescription
"over the counter" much like aspirin. After all we know
about these as much as the "doctors" know ---if not more.
Why should we be forced to go to a doctor and give him fee to get
a prescription of these food supplements? We should fight for our
this right to take our own nutritional supplements without having
to go to any doctor. There is
the World Self Medication Industry,
sites where a list of non-prescription medicines in different countries
stay in touch.
you like to attend our annual conference. We are the Indian Association
of Clinical Psychologists.
