The Citizens Commission on Human Rights has presented a submission to the United Nations Committee on the Rights of the Child.

It is thought provoking and compelling reading. I am appalled and disgusted with what I have read. It highlights the insidious side of the Australian health system, corruption, major conflicts of interest and greed. It makes me feel ashamed to be an Australian.

The full title of the report is:

                              Report to the United nations committee
                                       On the Rights of the Child
                                Regarding the Convention on the
                                  Rights of the Child – Australia

The sub title of the report is:

                       The escalating problem of paediatric misdiagnosis,
                                psychotropic drug prescriptions
                                   and other mental problems
