HOW YOU CAN HELP YOURSELF, YOUR FAMILY
There is a great deal that individuals the world over can do to overcome the shock, horror, extreme mental anguish and fear resulting from the attack on America-without falling further victim to psychiatric or psychological influence.
Recognizing your inherent spiritual nature and reaffirming your
own religious principles and beliefs are two first steps you can
make towards reversing the tragic effects of the attack. A 1992
study found that regular church-goers are significantly less likely
to suffer emotional difficulties. Therefore talk to your rabbi,
priest, monk, imam, minister or other religious leader.
2. A close family member or a trusted friend is also someone who can help, but ensure it is someone who firmly believes that we will all get through this.
3. Meanwhile if a parent, it is your right and your role to help your children through this difficult time. Talk to them about the incident, reassure them, and keep them active and their attention extroverted. Ensure that your child is not being subject to psychological counseling or psychiatric drugs in the classroom.
4. Desperate people must be provided proper and effective medical care, not the mind-numbing and addictive effects of psychiatric drugs or other physical psychiatric methods that are paraded as "therapy." These drugs are capable of not only changing the way a person thinks, feels and acts, but even what a person sees. They have numerous side effects, which will only add to the reactions an individual may already be experiencing from the attack. These drug effects can include insomnia, hallucinations, heightened emotional response, anxiety, agitation, severe depression and agitation.
5. Where possible, contribute, whether it is volunteering with the Red Cross, your local church, helping the elderly or at a school. Helping others can help you.
6. When your attention is too fixated on the tragedy or its aftermath, for example through watching TV, go for a walk with a friend, look at things in your environment and tell your friend what you like about them. This could help free up your attention and make you feel more at ease.
WHAT YOU CAN DO
1. Support our government and all governments of goodwill.
2. Write to international bodies such as the United Nations, the Council of Europe, European Parliament, and national bodies such as Congress to ask for an investigation into the possible role of psychological warfare (programs, indoctrination) and/or psychiatric treatments, including drugs, in all acts of terrorism and to issue a paper condemning the use of such manipulative methods.
3. At a local level, be alert to acts of random violence and write to your government representatives asking them to investigate any causal relationship between these crimes and psychotropic drug or psychological programs that may have influenced the perpetrator's thinking or behavior.
4. Report any information and/or evidence that you come across regarding psychiatric or psychological methods implicated in violent crime and terrorist acts to CCHR International.
