Reclassify all Organic Brain Diseases under Medicine
Please remove all organic, biologically based disorders and diseases of the brain (such as schizophrenia, schizo-affective, and bipolar disorder) out of behavioral health care/psychiatry back into medicine, within specialties such as neurology, neurobiology and/or neurophysiology, where they belong. Health care delivery has left the management and care for those suffering these disorders to “behavioral health care departments” where policies, philosophies and agendas diminish the very severity and complexity of the patient’s underlying medical condition. It’s an absolute failure of Medicine to allow this substandard care any longer. Medicine needs to step up, and take immediate action to rectify this disastrous situation for patients who suffer these complex diseases. Patients need care based on sound neuroscience within medicine that considers anatomy, biochemistry, cytology, endocrinology, genetics, histology, immunology, microbiology, neuroscience, pathology, and radiology.
