Marilyn Monroe - Death By Psychiatry?

On the CCHR website there is a section devoted to artists. As I am an artist this was struck home to me. Artists and successful people are often found surrounded by "professionals" in the field of mental health.

I've heard many stories about what happened to Marilyn Monroe but this, from CCHR's website makes the most sense. Here is an excerpt:

"In 1960, Monroe saw psychiatrist Ralph Greenson, whose control over her was swift, severing all her close relationships. By 1962, she realized—too late—that she must "disconnect from Greenson." After spending six hours with him, she was found dead of a drug overdose. In the seven years prior to psychiatry’s influence, Monroe had made 23 movies. In the seven years of her psychiatric "care," she only made six films."
Check out the Citizen's Commission on Human Rights for more information on other famous artists whose lives have been destroyed by Psychiatry in the name of help.
