This new journal is a challenge to conventional wisdom. Contemporary psychiatry provides average clinical care in the best of circumstances, and poor care in many cases. It lives on failed theories of a past century, and pretends it is avant-garde. The profession’s system of diagnosis, the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual, 5th edition (DSM-5), published by the American Psychiatric Association (APA), is mostly false, and demonstrably so. Yet it is accepted and practiced worldwide as if it was proven true. The profession’s medication treatment approach is based on DSM-5 definitions, and thus is also false and weak in its effects. Yet it is accepted by government regulators and pharmaceutical companies worldwide. Most psychiatric drugs only improve symptoms short-term, at best, like aspirin for a headache or ibuprofen for a fever, yet they are given and assumed to be effective long-term, though few are proven so (such as lithium) and many are disproven long-term. Its psychotherapies are eclectic, and applied more often based on the preferences of practitioners than the needs of patients.
